Bacon and eggs for breakfast, a steak for lunch and pizza for dinner doesn't sound like the traditional breakfast of someone on a diet, but a Tamworth woman has dropped an amazing 60 kg doing just that.
Josie Coyle first heard about the Keto Diet in 2016 following a diagnosis of Intracranial hypertension, which was going to cause her to go completely blind unless the, then 130 kg woman, started dropping the weight.
"I had tried, and spent a fortune on, every diet and weight loss fad before but nothing worked for me," she said.
"I was at a point where I was considering surgery when I found a Keto Coaches Facebook page and started doing a lot of research.
"I started the Keto diet at the start of 2017 and the weight just fell off me."
Two years later Ms Coyle is 70kg, and has never felt better, although believes the Keto Diet gets a lot of undeserved criticism.
Keto is essentially a high fat, low carb diet, zero sugar diet that claims to burn fat more efficiently by putting the body into a state of ketosis where fuel molecules, 'ketones', are created and used for energy rather than burning glucose for energy.
"I eat all meats, quiches, pizzas, vegetables, but I don't eat any bread, pasta or rice because they don't have a lot of nutritional value," Ms Coyle said.
"I did a lot of research and am quite strict with my diet. I also use intermittent fasting, although it has not been too difficult."
In the first 12 months Ms Coyle lost 50 kg, and then began to incorporate exercise into her routine to help drop the remaining 10 kg to maintain the weight loss, and build strength.
"I feel amazing, both mentally and physically," she said.
"My life used to revolve around food, but now I listen to my body and eat when I need to. It saved my eyesight, and maybe even my life."
