Weight loss: The woman used the keto diet & intermittent fasting to lose weight
What is the Keto diet?
The keto diet, or ketogenic diet, is a low-carb diet plan.
Dieters may only eat low carb foods, such as lean meat and dairy. The idea of the diet is to put the body into a state of ketosis.
This is an alternative metabolic rate in which the body burns fat instead of carbohydrates to survive.
What is intermittent fasting?
Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting.
The reason that this trick is so popular among slimmers is that intermittent fasting doesn’t limit a slimmer to which foods to eat, but rather when they should eat them.
Most people already “fast” every day, while they sleep. Intermittent fasting can be as simple as extending that fast a little longer.
A slimmer can do this simply, eating their first meal at noon and their last meal before 8 pm.
Then a slimmer would be technically fasting for 16 hours every day while restricting their eating window to eight hours. This is known as the 16/8 method.

Millions are tuning in to watch and work out with Joe Wicks every day during the UK coronavirus lockdown.
The Body Coach has revealed two simple tips to burn fat at home – what can you do?
When trying to slim the waistline, dieters should make two key changes, Joe told Express.co.uk.
He said: “My top tips came down to two simple things.
“Number one is regular home cooking, so focus on avoiding on processed food, deliveries and takeaways, just keep it simple and go back to basics and stick to home-cooked food.
“Number two is exercise. Regular home works out, if you can 15 to 20 minutes a day, wherever it may be – just to get your body moving, burning some energy.
“Be as active as you can throughout the day wherever possible, take the stairs. These little things all add up to your daily energy expenditure.”
With many people working from home as a results of coronavirus, many slimmers will turn to at-home workouts. The fitness star explained combining resistance training and cardio can give good results.
