Losing almost 100 pounds and gaining 6-pack abs on a keto diet


Before and after

After a hike where he couldn’t keep up with his family, Jeremiah realized that he had to do something about his increasing weight. With the help of a keto diet and hiking, he dropped 92 lbs (42 kg), but that isn’t the only transformation that has taken place:

I have so much more energy and I feel like I am always in a great mood. I feel like I have become the dad and husband that I really wanted to be. I feel like I have drive and ambition like I have never had before in my life — and I’m almost 40!
