This is true in other areas of life, to be sure. What we know we should do for ourselves is simple: exercise every day, complete all the tasks at our jobs, save money instead of spending it, quit smoking or drinking to excess — we know all the right things to do, the knowledge we lack is how to get ourselves to take the right actions.
To this end, a community on Reddit has become more and more popular by working through a diet that claims to work not just because it accomplishes the simple goal every diet accomplishes (helping people eat less calories than their body expends, resulting in weight loss) but because it helps people feel satisfied enough with what their eating that they can actually stick to it.
It’s called Keto and it’s basically a high fat, low carb diet. What excites most people about this is that it’s a diet you can eat bacon on.
Advocates of the diet say that by strictly avoiding carbs (keeping their intake between 0-50g per day), they force the body to burn fat for energy rather than it’s preferred source of energy, glucose. Also, because you are not spiking your insulin levels with carbohydrates, you will crave less food.
Some Reddit users have seen big progress using keto, like this girl:
Today Reddit’s keto community (r/keto) has over 150,000 community members. The community members post daily tips, share progress pics, and help each other through the hurdles of eating a diet that looks different than the way most people eat.
