Weight loss can be a challenging journey, but the good news is that it's achievable. One reddit user, nathanaelnsmith, has shared their weight loss journey from 176 pounds to 161 pounds over a period of 3.5 months. Even better, they have been able to achieve this change through a keto diet.

What is Keto Diet?

Keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet aiming to help the body break down fats to produce ketones.

According to nathanaelnsmith, their daily meals while on keto include eggs and bacon for breakfast, sausage or vegetables for lunch, and meat-based dishes with vegetables for dinner. Their snacks would also consist of nuts and vegetables with no sugar.

The Benefits of Keto Diet

While there are a lot of viewpoints debating the benefits of a keto diet, it has been known to help reduce body weight, especially when partnered with proper exercise. In addition, the keto diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers.

Reddit User nathanaelnsmith's Journey

Nathanaelnsmith shared pictures of their weight loss journey on reddit, which showed astounding physical transformations. They also explained how they've cut out all sugar in their diet and only drank water with some flavoring. When asked about what their goals are, nathanaelnsmith shared that they only have about 15lbs until they reach their goal weight.


Nathanaelnsmith's weight loss journey can serve as inspiration for others to try keto diet and achieve their own fitness goals. While their weight loss journey is an impressive accomplishment, it is important to keep in mind that everyone's body is unique, and personal factors may affect weight loss. That being said, if you want to give the keto diet a go or any other diets, make sure you consult with your healthcare provider to ensure you're doing things safely and following a proper diet plan.
