You’ve probably been hearing a lot lately about the ketogenic diet. This low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein meal plan puts your body in a state of ketosis, which causes your system to burn fat for fuel instead of stored carbohydrates. People who go keto aim to get 75% to 90% of their daily calories come from fat, 6% to 20% from protein, and 2% to 5% from carbs.
Originally created as a diet to control epileptic seizures, the keto plan has become increasingly popular as a weight-loss regimen as well. It’s so buzzy, the Instagram account @ketotransformations has already racked up an incredible 145,000+ followers. Each post shows before-and-after photos of people who credit keto for the pounds they’ve dropped. Check out these examples of the more than 1,400 transformations.
