27 Insane Keto Before and After Photos

If you’re on the keto diet, you’re probably thirsty for all keto content, all the time; if you’re not, well, sorry in advance because here comes even more: enter, these inspirational AF keto diet before-and-after photos.

A little background on the keto diet if you haven’t been following along at home: It’s short for “ketogenic,” and promotes weight loss through a diet low in carbohydrates (less than 20 grams a day), high in protein, and moderately high in fat—picture a dinner plate featuring a salmon filet, a mound of broccoli, and a drizzle of olive oil.

Instagram alone has a wealth of keto-focused hashtags that highlight crazy keto transformations (#ketotransformation and #ketofam, to name a few). And if the below photos don’t spark your keto-interest, some of the captions definitely will.

“I’ve never been so happy with a diet in my life,” says @the_keto_wife. “The keto diet and regular exercise have made me into the healthy mom and wife my family and I deserve,” says @keykeypeaches; and per @byebye.carbs, “Keto has worked wonders for my body.”

Of course, celebs are pretty crazy for it too—s/o Halle Berry, Kourtney Kardashian, and Vanessa Hudgens, to name a few. But honestly, these real-person transformations are where it’s at (they may even tempt you into stocking up on avocados, lean meats, and cheese the next time you’re at the grocery store).

Something to keep in mind if you are (or this story makes you) keto-curious: the diet isn’t exactly meant to be long-term, according to Scott Keatley, R.D., of Keatley Medical Nutrition Therapy. (It’s a little too restrictive for that—literally so much meat and cheese.) You should also check with your doctor before starting any new diet plan.

Still, a little extra motivation never hurt anyone. Check out the impressive before-and-after shots below—they may just turn you into a keto convert.

#TRANSFORMATION STORY PLEASE READ: I used to be severely overweight for a period of my life (probably considered obese). Some people have known me a long time and have seen my #progress, but some only know me now and don’t know what I used to be. There are a few years of my life with zero to very few pictures of me because I hated the way I looked. After getting out of a toxic relationship (when I ate my feelings out of depression), I was able to lose a little bit on my own by focusing on #me and getting back into activities I loved (musical theater) and overall being happy again. But I was still overweight and sort of hit a plateau, so I gave up on trying because nothing seemed to be working. It wasn’t until October of 2016 that I learned about the #ketogenic lifestyle and started that way of eating and was able to lose 10 pounds in 2 months, just from making better food choices. In January of 2017, I began a fitness regime, going to the #gym about 4-5 days a week doing a mix of weight lifting and cardio. My plan was to hit my #goal weight within one year. (To be honest, I didn’t think I was going to do it, but told myself I’d be happy if I got close.) It’s been one year since I did my first #workout on my own and I am so excited to say that I did it…I HIT MY GOAL WEIGHT!!! From June 2015 to now, I have lost about 76 pounds/7 dress sizes and I’m a happier, healthier, and stronger version of myself than I ever was before! It’s not just about the number and how I look, but I’ve learned that I need to take care of my body from the inside out for #health reasons too. I now have more energy and I feel absolutely amazing. I finally feel like the version of myself that I always envisioned in my head. This has been a long and hard #journey and there were many times I thought I might give up. I’m sharing these pictures not out of vanity, but because I’m just so #happy that I did it and I want people to know that you can do whatever you set your mind to!! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 #follow
