The Ketogenic Diet is well known for helping people lose weight as one of it's strictest rules is cutting out carbohydrates.

While it can help you lose weight, Healthline warn it can also lead to some pretty miserable side effects such as – poor energy and mental function, increased hunger, sleep issues, nausea, digestive discomfort and decreased exercise performance.

The website reads: "It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

"When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain."

Most people restrict themselves to 20 to 50 grams of carbs a day, and that includes the carbs in fruits and veggies.  

And while it can seem restrictive, Emily, a Keto diet follower has revealed how you can still eat your favourite meals while staying on plan.

She regularly shares Keto friendly recipes on her Instagram account @emily_in_keto from a full English breakfast, bacon and egg sandwiches to sweet treats.

However, there is limited research on the keto diet and few long-term studies, so experts warn people to tread with caution.

“There are other diets that limit carbs, but not as much as the keto diet,” dietitian Victoria Taylor said. 

“Typically allowing 50 to 130 grams of carbs per day, they have been found to be safe and effective in the short term, for example for people with type 2 diabetes. 

“Or you could try a Mediterranean-style diet, which has benefits for heart health.”

While the Keto diet helped Lauren keep to a strict diet while she was exercising, she also decided to get a little help with surgery.

In another clip, Lauren revealed that after she kept the weight off she got a mummy makeover.

"I had maintained my weight loss for over a year with no regain," she said, adding: "But my hard work was hidden by my loose skin."

Lauren decided it was time to get a tummy tuck to help her feel confident in her new body and hasn't looked back.

Showing off pictures of her new physique, people were left in awe over just how incredible Lauren looked.

Her TikTok account @kickinitwithlauren has amassed over 37k followers and over 350k likes.

One person wrote: "So inspiring! You put in work! Thank you for showing it's possible."

Another commented: "Girl you killed it."

"Thank you for sharing this very motivating," penned a third.

Meanwhile a fourth said: "Honestly that’s amazing that’s all the loose skin you had, you put in some work!!!"

"That is so amazing,” claimed a fifth.
