12lbs Karl West, from Wrexham, North Wales, was unable to breathe due to sleep apnoea and was not able to play with his kids.
In January, he decided to lose weight and took up the keto diet.
Karl has now lost five stone in just 10 months and looks incredible.
Karl took up the keto diet and started going to the gym four times a week once he decided to lose weight.
Karl said: “In December last year, I weighed 16st 12lbs and knew I needed to change – I would have ended up over 17 stone. I was also suffering from depression and was really in a rut.”
“I thought if my mental state was going to improve I would have to improve my fitness. I decided to do keto because I follow boxing and knew Tyson Fury had used it to lose a few stone, so thought I would give it a try.”
Karl says his life has changed for the better and he feels young again.
Earlier, Karl was unable to play with his kids but now he plays football with his kids and never runs out of energy.
He said: “Before I lost weight I was having sleep apnoea, I would wake up a few times unable to breathe and my GP said it was related to my weight. It was a trigger point, they say it can be quite dangerous.”
“From the age of 16 to 25 I was quite healthy, I was going to the gym but eight years doing 12-hour shifts in a factory to put food on the table meant I didn’t take care of myself.”
Karl says it was very difficult when he first started the diet as he got sugar cravings. His wife, Nicola used to make keto cakes for him.
He says without the support of his wife he couldn’t have done this.
