The keto diet: “It just shows that no matter your age, you can lose weight and keep it off”


A keto diet, intermittent fasting and keeping things simple is Dot’s recipe for success. By sticking to this regimen, she has been able to drop 35 lbs (16 kg):


I am 74 years old. I started keto on the 20th of August in 2016 at 190 lbs (86 kg). My goal was 155 lbs (70 kg). I used a tracker and logged every bite I put in my mouth using the 75-20-5 formula, doing IF 18:6 and drinking a BPC every morning at 7:00 a.m.

I reached my goal after 15 months and now am staying UNDER my goal and in maintenance. It just shows that no matter your age, you can lose weight and keep it off if you just follow the plan and keep it simple.



Thank you for sharing your inspiring journey Dot, and congratulations to your success!
