A woman who has been following a low carb, high fat modest protein diet has documented her incredible 88lb weight loss with a series of photos showing just how dramatically her body – and self-confidence – has changed. This is from the Daily Mail (video from ABC News via Yahoo)…

26-year-old Amanda, who did not reveal her last name, embarked on a high-fat, moderate protein and low-carbohydrate diet in 2011 in a bid to shrink her then-222lb frame.
In just a year, the five-foot-four brunette lost 88lbs, taking monthly pictures throughout the process, which one of her impressed viewers compiled into a five-second GIF
In order to reach her goal weight, Amanda wrote on her Reddit account that she did a ‘Keto-Paleo hybrid’ diet, which consisted of mostly fats like eggs, fish, pork and beef, and vegetables, nuts and ‘the occasional low-lactose dairy’.
By sticking to this strict diet of 1,200 to 1,300 a day and doing ‘virtually zero intentional exercise’, Amanda managed to shed the weight while gaining self-confidence.
Indeed, the Reddit user responded to some viewers who commented on the fact that her smile gets broader as her waist gets smaller in the photo series.
‘In the early stages of taking progress pictures, I literally only took one photo of myself. I hated the way I looked,’ she wrote.
‘I had so little self-confidence that the thought honestly never crossed my mind.’
