Rossy-kins, 22 year old, stands 6'2" and had a starting weight of 300lbs. He attributes his 116-pound weight loss to his commitment to the keto diet.

The Journey

Rossy-kins reports on Reddit that, over the course of 2.3/5 years, he followed a keto diet which allows for high protein, high fat, and low carbohydrate intake. He shared his progress pictures on the subreddit r/keto, which received over 140 upvotes. He regularly consumed eggs, avocado, meats, vegetables and nuts instead of traditional carb-heavy foods.

The Struggle

Rossy-kins acknowledges that the keto diet is not perfect and struggles with a constant desire to consume carb-heavy foods. He had failed on traditional diets before because of his insatiable hunger, and he ultimately decided to try the keto diet because of its hunger-satisfying characteristics. He found that with a low-carb diet he could eat until he was full, and still lose weight.

The Benefits

Rossy-kins feels wonderful after his weight loss success. In addition to his increased energy and better moods, he emphasizes that his physical appearance has drastically changed for the better. He had not only changed physically but has delivered a massive blow to the self-deprecating mindset he found himself in. His journey wasn't a short one but indeed a fruitful one.

The Takeaway

Rossy-kins' journey teaches us that successful weight loss doesn't happen overnight, and it doesn't come from fad diets or magic pills. You need a balanced approach that works for you and sticks to it- and it may take years to get where you want to be. So, don't be swayed by gimmicks or quick fixes. Dedicate yourself to a lifestyle change that you know will work for you in the long term. It just takes hard work and commitment to achieve your goals.
