Another man used the keto diet plan to lose 10 stone. What did he do?
The Reddit user turned to the keto diet, or the ketogenic plan, to lose the weight.
The keto diet is a low-carb plan that advocates eating high amounts of fat.
It is devised to trigger ketosis, which is when the body uses fat as its primary fuel instead of carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates are foods that are broken down into sugar glucose in the body. Examples include refined sugar, but also bread, pasta, potatoes and carrots.
