If you are looking for the motivation to really give the keto diet a go, you need nothing other than these 38 incredible keto diet before and after pictures taken from keto diet enthusiasts. The results depend on the “level” you get to on the keto diet, as there are different “intensities” you can reach in ketosis (meaning the amount of fat burning you get to), so some of these results look nice, while others look stunning. It's mostly due to the ability to stick to the diet and not exit ketosis too frequently.
@ketomermaid_ : “My family Sept 18 and November 17
SW: 104kg | CW: 76 kg | GW: 64kg
I was nowhere near my heaviest in the before pic (left) but I think it's still a noticeable difference”
“My little guy is getting bigger and I’m getting smaller!”
Here's another selfie of @ketomermaid_ after 5 months – and even if there's a little belly sucking to make it look so amazing, you can see why it appears they have the perfect family, with everyone gettting love and attention.
Keto Diet Pics and Notes
“I found keto, watched people’s transformations and food diaries for months. What struck me as interesting is people were losing weight looking like they had gastric bypass but they didn’t, it was just keto. I’m not sure what my actual breaking point was other than we went on vacation and I avoided all pics, ordered a bikini in a 4xl(China sizing) and it didn’t fit, and the fact that I was turning 30 and SWORE I’d have lost weight by then, also we talked about getting married this summer and I was not going to be a fat bride, forever having my triple chin haunt me in photos.”
Ketobabyy – Day one and Day twenty
Drops 11 pounds and the difference is noticeable!
This is a stunning example of how fast and impactful you can see results – in just 20 days you can see her go from two rolls to one in the tummy area – massive improvement in just a few weeks.
“Well here we are. #sidebysidesunday
Since recently I’ve decided I’ve had enough because the symptoms of PCOS were ruining my day to day. In the last year I’ve put on 50lbs, started having anxiety/panic attacks, mood swings, & manic depression. So far I’ve only given keto a 100% commitment for 20 days. I feel much better mentally & to be honest, didn’t really feel/see physical changes. Today I did a side by side of my personal progression photos. HOLY MOLY ~ there isn’t a huge difference, but at least I can see I’m headed in the right direction! There is an 11lbs difference between these 2 photos (which I just figured was all water weight! LOL). I’m really thankful the keto community is so welcoming/supportive. In such a short time it’s made such a positive impact on my life. ”
@jennacantlose is showing the complete transformation here, and while we don't have the timeframe listed, it is probably 60 days between photo sessions.
Do you think it's even the same woman? Check out that tattoo and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
“Ugh. I almost chickened out on posting this before image of me. This is me at my heaviest, probably around 187 maybe more. More than likely more. I asked my hubby to shoot a elbow up pic for a pro breastfeeding pic for IG. I don’t even know what to say, other than I’m so sorry to my body. Moving on.
Let’s talk what a day of eating looks like for me on the 1 day I don’t practice #intermittentfasting I wake up with Batel around 7 am. I immediately chug 1-2 cups of coffee (regular instant) with a scoop of coconut oil and a splash of sugar free creamer (can’t stop won’t stop)
In about an hour I make 3 scrambled eggs with mushrooms and a handful of Mexican mixed shredded cheese. I cut an avocado and take half. I then put Batel down for her nap at noon and work on my poshmark until she wakes at 2:30-3:00. I’m STARVING by then so I throw a ribeye steak in my cast iron skillet and grill it with purple onions and garlic. I serve it over kale. I don’t get enormously hungry for dinner so I usually bake a small fillet of fish (I love sea bass). That’s it! I get so many requests on what I eat so I may make this a weekly deal to help y’all with your #ketodiet ♥️ keep me updated on your progress, it makes me happy to hear your wins! Oh and can we just talk about my abs peeping through?
@whyweighttv has this to say: “We have to stop putting deadlines on our bodies, we have our entire lives to be healthy and happy; losing 20lbs in 30 days doesn't mean anything! Create healthy habits not restrictions, don't think about what you can't do but what you can do! Staying motivated is hard, I fight demons daily but I know my body & mind well enough by now to know the positivity good food and regular exercise brings not only to my body but to my mind and soul!”
7 Month Body Makeover
While @ketofaith looks happier in the beginning, I think the reality is she's smiling almost all the time now, due to the body transformation the ketosis process has done for her.
With a bit of cheating here and there, it is still possible to remain on track for firming up your body, and having everyone asking what you are doing to look so much younger.
“I shared this on my personal Facebook page yesterday and figured I should share it here too! I’m so happy to see the changes I’ve made in my body so far this year and I can’t wait to see where the next few months will take me!”
“I have a freaking WAIST coming in 😭🙌🏼 It’s only about 2 months between these pics and around 15lbs difference but a huge difference in the shape of my waist/stomach and clothes are fitting a lot looser these days 🙌🏼🙌🏼
The scale hasn’t been my friend at ALL throughout my Keto journey so far, but I’m trying very hard to focus on how much better I feel (and look) instead of focusing on that number. It’s not easy, and I still get down on myself when I don’t see the scale moving quickly enough (or if I regain a pound or 2), BUT I’m trying, and that’s all I can do right now. ”
From Carb Daycare to Keto Dancing
@keto4karboholics manages to drop a whopping 58 pounds down after following the keto diet, and while she looks fab in both pics, the after photograph on the right is definitely going to garner some additional attention in life.
“My goal took time to hit. That time I changed the way I look at food, rewards, and my body. I enjoyed, and still enjoy this way of eating. I love how I feel and look. Just stop the rationalizing!”
@ketobeauties has dropped an incredible 83 pounds and wants to go for another 17 pounds!
She writes: “Some motivation to start your tomorrow right!!! This is what -83 pounds looks like. 17 more pounds until my goal!! ✌🏼 My starting weight was 260lbs!”
kailey.wilderman: You look amazing!!!
@kevingoesketo showsthat keto isn't just for the gals! This complete transformation shows that guys have the same results – rapid fat loss and restoration of their youthful bodies.
Kevin Benko states: “…I want to share my results, recipes for successful weight loss on a ketogenic diet, as well as some tips and tricks for people just getting started!”
@Brittney.in.bloom says “I was finally able to size down in my scrub bottoms! I haven’t been able to size down in the top yet because these hips don’t lie 😅 but hopefully soon! I definitely needed this NSV to stay motivated this week. Hope y’all are having a good week so far! Keep killing it! ”
“Keto gave me my life back and when I do comparisons like this it usually puts me in tears. Can't even describe all the emotions they make me feel.”
You should check out her insta page as this photo doesn't show the radiant beauty transformation keto has blessed her with.
@keto4medoh has sliced off 65 pounds and rekindled her life in many amazing ways.
Christina writes “Hi everyone! Somehow we got a ton of followers in the last week, so I thought I’d introduce myself, and try to explain what I’ve been doing so far….
BUUUUUUT I think the first thing I have to say is I’m literally just starting out.
I’m DEFINITELY NOT A KETO EXPERT, I actually feel like I’m just getting the hang of it myself. I’m learning from all of you everyday. I just like keto food, making it look as pretty as possible & making my husband take pics of it! I started this account to look for keto recipes & inspiration, to hold myself accountable, & to try to motivate myself to try new recipes & not eat egg salad everyday 🤣.
I started keto almost 5 months ago because
I thought I had Candida!
I had a persistent rash on my chin & eyelids among other symptoms. They started after a massive round of antibiotics for an infection that developed after I had an emergency appendectomy. So I think my gut health was messed up. We’ve also been struggling to conceive baby #2.
I have unexplained secondary infertility
and as I was going through all the testing, they also said I had a thyroid issue. I turned to dr. Google (which is usually a terrible idea) and saw keto mentioned over & over. So I did some research & decided to give it a shot. The first month I lost 27 lbs & felt better than ever. Skin cleared up, I started getting more & more energy.
That all really motivated me to keep going.
Ok, so now for the questions I’ve been getting…. I’m 6ft tall. Starting weight was 261.6, on Wednesday I weighed 185.8 so I’ve lost 75.8 lbs last time I checked. I use the free app carb manager to calculate my macros, and also to track my food. My current macros are 1200 calories, 14g net carbs, 85g fat, 69g protein. I focus on meeting protein, & being under on carbs & calories.
I don’t worry about the fat too much
or try to meet the fat goal if I’m full, because I still have a lot of stored fat that my body can use for fuel. I eat really clean & stick to my macros 80% of the time, and 20% of the time I drink diet soda, sugar free rockstar, eat keto cake for breakfast, have low carb tortillas, go over on calories, drink too much vodka, have off days…you get it.
@kailiesmama is also on her way with the keto process!
Bria writes: “5+ Months of dedication 🤩 • How – #ketogenicdiet • Do I work out? – Not a lot. I’ll start my gym routine in September, just enjoying summer for right now. • How to start – Find a keto calculator on google and figure out your macros, I track everything with My fitness pal. Read keto books, listen to keto podcasts, Pinterest is a keto gold mine, follow keto instagrammers. Educate yourself! •No I don’t have a meal plan. • “But I could never give up bread!” – Yes you can. • Do I cheat? – I cheated on vacation but don’t make it a regular thing. The process of getting back into ketosis isn’t worth a doughnut to me. But you do what works for you. • Can you drink alcohol? There are lots of no carb alcohols but they make me stall when I drink them. So I save alcohol for special occasions. •Are you afraid you will gain all your weight back after you stop keto? I have no intention of going back to full carb eating after I lose my weight, I will adjust my macros accordingly. And I will always eat what I want on vacation”
@shrinkingbeverly_e is showing some fantastic progress as well using the keto techniques.
Beverly writes: “his Is my reminder to keep going!! 0.4 pounds is all I lost this week. Normally I would give up at this point because the scale barely moved but I know I’ve been on top of my eating and exercising….plus it’s Mother Nature week 🙄 gotta keep going”
“This double chin is going and I promise it'll never come back lol”
@ketobell_ireland is showing Europeans can also get the benefits of keto, with all the foods readily available to gain energy, look better and transform themselves.
@ketoqueen365 is a mom who found
@keto_taj shows us how you can see the results in just 60 days when you follow the keto guidelines.
Taj exclaims ” hate that I’ve deleted all photos of me that I didn’t approve of because I thought I was too fat/ugly.
Now, I’m trying my hardest to get photos of myself but I still find myself behind the camera & not in front of it. 🤷🏽♀️ Anyways, I may not always see the scale move but just by looking at these two photos I can see the inches falling off.”
How could I ever be mad at Monday with mornings like this?
@loving_lessofme_more‘s Kimberley has this to say:
“Not ever as a punishment for what you ate… but as a celebration of everything your body is capable of ♥️
I took my girls outside this morning to burn off a little energy before it gets too hot. They jumped on the trampoline while I cheered them on and got in a great workout with my resistance bands. When I was done with my workout we raced each other with our legs banded. It was a blast…
@ketoincanada is having the best success ever with keto. Joanna writes “Week after week I put my time in at the gym. You don’t see the changes from day to day you just have to TRUST THE PROCESS
Trust that when you eat the right foods in the right quantity, your body will slim down
TRUST that when you push your body physically your muscles will grow and your shape will change
If you’re not enjoying the journey, only focusing on the number on the scale you will fail before you’ve really given yourself a chance to change
DO NOT quit on yourself
because you’re not moving fast enough. DO NOT GIVE UP ON THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT because other people are getting there faster! This is not a race with other people, this is slow crawl, steady grind, freakishly rewarding journey by YOURSELF”
@ketoguido shows how the guys can do keto. It's as simple as getting the carbs under 20g per day (net carbs) . Vinny adds ”
- High Carb Low Fat on the left (2015) …. Low Carb High Fat on the right (today)… and people still claim that meat causes more inflammation than sugar 🤦🏻♂️… maybe for some but not for this –
Going carnivore for a week really helped my body get back into things . Another finding was that I barely passed gas on carnivore and yesterday i had an Atkins bar and a little grain free carbs and have been stinking up my house 😂.. not sure what that means but I think it’s that my body was running like a well oiled machine on just meat and once a little carbs and sweetener was introduced it went started buggin”
- ketofitmw adds “I'd go with no bars, or Bulletproof bars over, Atkins bars. The gas is almost definitely from the sugar alcohols in the bars they can cause gas/lower intestinal bloating. You wana switch to pure stevia leaf extract as a sweetener because it's natural/from a leaf, not artificial/man made in a lab like the other sugar alcohol sweeteners.”
@shrinking_shantel blows even my mind, to even consider the person on the left is also the one on the right – a complete night and day transformation.
She writes: “Just had some thoughts that I wanted to share. I talk to so many women every day who know what to do to get their bodies closer to what they want,
but they just aren’t doing it!
They are just holding themselves back with their mind or their lack of routine. No one can do this for you!
I can tell you what I eat every day and what my gym routine is but if you aren’t putting in the effort, you aren’t going to see results!
I just want to remind everyone that if you want to transform your body and get where you’ve only dream of, every detail counts! Every little thing makes a difference! Mental health is a byproduct of being physically active.
It starts in your mind. It has to be worth it to you. You have to prioritize! Others aren’t just lucky, but they may be more detailed and specific…. or DRIVEN! It’s that easy….. or hard. It’s up to you! Really think about your goals and how much energy you are truly putting in to them. Your routine could be costing you.
@ketofy.me is also looking younger and younger.
Lele writes “3 years wiser? Maybe 🤣 (honestly I don’t remember the exact date but I’m pretty sure I was 33 lol). Enjoying my 30’s but I really don’t want to waste the end of it by being overweight and unhealthy. I’m definitely healthier now than I was before — I was yo-yo dieting a lot. Summer 2019 here I come!!”
@ashleymorrisfit Ashley has taken keto to the next level – making keto and fitness her @business and life. She writes: “OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS! 365 days apart &
I don’t even recognize myself!
On the left is a photo of me on my 23rd birthday.. weighing in at 185 pounds and absolutely miserable. I had just had my breasts done & thought that would solve all of my issues regarding my body image. I was wrong. It was the wake up call I needed. There wasn’t a surgery that was going to make me love myself again. There is nothing you can buy & no amount of money that will fix that problem but I will tell you what can- good old plain and simple hard work. Put in the time, put in the effort, put in the work & it will never fail you. I can promise you that. There are no shortcuts, you have to be willing to change or nothing changes. Re-prioritize your life and put you and your health FIRST.”
@carolineloses looks completely unrecognizable from her past self. She tells us “I'm 6 months post op and 100 pounds down!! 🎉 300 lbs. vs 199 lbs. I still have 50-60 pounds to lose until I'm where I want to be. But I'm so happy to see how far I've come. Sometimes I need to be reminded because I'll find myself still feeling fat and self conscious. But I'm so much more than that…🖤”
@losermentality has got her life back. Read her story: “Me from a size 20 to an 8, he from a size 35 to a 31. 135lbs total! It’s pretty tough to get my hubby @starsonmyarm to participate in my Instagram photoshoots 🤷🏼♀️ but he was game after seeing how huge his old pants were. ——————————————————————-We’ve been together for going on 18 years – since we were teenagers. We grew up together and we learned everything side by side. How to cook, how to budget, how to live with someone, how to build a rock solid relationship, how to build a family, and how to support someone you love through ANYTHING. ————————————————————————
I was 16 when we met. I was thin/average and had a lot of baggage and emotional issues but he loved me and he casually encouraged me to work through things. In our 20’s I ate to hide my pain and gained 100+ lbs. He gently encouraged me to be more active with him and continued to tell me I was “hot”. When we talked about having children he told me I’d make an amazing mother and he suggested we work towards our best selves before taking the next step. When I started running, he started with me. When I cut out carbs, he cut them out too. When I celebrate hitting my goals, he’s my biggest fan. All the while he’s hitting goals of his own and doesn’t ask for an ounce of recognition. ———————————————————————— I don’t think I could possibly have gotten to where I am without his support, influence and encouragement. If you’ve got that person too, don’t be afraid to lean on them. If you can be that person for someone, do it. Wherever you are in your journey today just keep moving. Focus on the small changes and the next goal. You WILL get there and you won’t regret any of it. Happy Tuesday friends! ”
@thefittrainerswife is the perfect picture of health. Liz writes “Yes, keto has transformed my body but even more so it's transformed my relationship with food and my time in the kitchen. I love the freedom that living keto gives me and the ability to create really satisfying meals. I love that I'm not hungry all the time, I never feel deprived, and I can always find something that fits within my goals. And it just tastes GOOD. Keto works for me ”
Male Keto Diet Before And After Pics – The Visual Results of a Low Carb Diet
@life_is_keto is living the good life and has this to say about his keto transformation: “On Tuesdays we transform! I’ve been maintaining for over 2 months now and loving it! Lost 112 pounds in less than 1 year doing #Keto and exercising occasionally. If I can do it, you can too!”
@bodytakeback – the name says it all – she's back in the saddle! Another keto diet before and after 30 days result!
Jessie shares “So far from perfect, but that's not my goal.
My goal is to have endurance during my workouts, to have incredible form, and to be strong enough to push myself to be better than my last rep.
This last month I decided to experiment with my diet to get over this plateau I've been on, by eating a higher fat lower carb diet.
I've lost 10 pounds!!! 10 pounds in a month! 😱😱😱 The weight is melting and I have felt so, SO good! Which I was not expecting. I was always such a solid believer in carbs and protein, but I had never even considered that a diet higher in fat could give me so much energy and help me transform my body even more. Just shows that you should never think you know everything! 😂
I'm excited to embark on this style of eating all while sharing my workouts, fitness tips and
@ketodietresults writes in “SELFIES! I don't take many, mostly to track my weight loss. But today's my birthday… How old do you think I am??? Clearly need to work on my golfer's/farmer's tan. I was at my highest weight around 2009 (> 200 lbs). Down to 148 lbs in 2013. Back up to 176 lbs in 2015 before keto. Crossed the 150 lb mark in April 2016 and haven't been above that number since. As of today it's 141.8 lbs. My next step is higher weights with my workouts, since now I do almost all body weight and kettle bell. My max push-up set is 60 reps. Max pull-up set is 20. My plan is to live past 100. With technology and medical advancements, I don't see why 150-200 isn't possible.”
