Here’s an impressive accomplishment! Amanda went from 220 lbs (100 kg) to 132 lbs (60 kg) in a year with an LCHF-like paleo diet (low carb, high fat, real food).
The movie clip above showing the transformation was put together from pictures taken during the weight loss journey. In the movie clip this weight loss journey only takes five seconds. In reality it took a year, but what a difference!
I note that she limited her intake to 1200-1300 kcal daily. On a low-carb diet this is often enough to feel satiated – don’t forget that she also used approximately 600 kcal daily from her body reserves!
A total of 88 lbs (40kg) weight loss may have contained over 200,000 kcal, which her body was using during this year. The LCHF diet’s insulin-lowering effect facilitates the use of stored fat.
She might feel hungrier as she approaches her normal weight. Her body’s fat reserves will by then be almost depleted and her body won’t be as keen on letting go of the last, with an increase in hunger as a result. In order to continue in the same way she should then probably add more fat to her diet to keep satisfied.
