The keto diet is becoming popular as a weight loss solution. One user in particular, BodyByButterAndBacon, shared her experience of losing 33.6 pounds in five months solely through following the keto diet.

No exercise needed

BodyByButterAndBacon shared that she didn't exercise much during her weight loss journey; in fact, she only walked on a treadmill a few times within the first few weeks. This sheds light on the idea that heavy exercise isn't always necessary to experience weight loss.

The keto diet

The key to BodyByButterAndBacon's weight loss was the keto diet. The keto diet is a low carb, high fat diet that forces the body to achieve ketosis, where it burns fat for energy instead of glucose from carbs. BodyByButterAndBacon followed a keto diet that contained little to no net carbs, moderate protein, and high fat.

Feeling fuller, longer

On the keto diet, BodyByButterAndBacon found that foods high in fat and protein were very satiating, while carbs had the opposite effect. While her daily caloric intake was around 1350, there were some days where she had trouble eating that much due to feeling full from her keto-friendly foods.


BodyByButterAndBacon's weight loss journey shows that the keto diet can be an effective weight loss solution without the need for heavy exercise. While this isn't the diet for everyone, those looking for a low carb and high fat diet to help them lose weight might want to give the keto diet a try.
