Dad’s 7st weight loss on the keto diet – after he couldn’t keep up with his kids

A DAD has been described as an inspiration after shedding a remarkable 92lbs and piling on the muscle in just five months.

Jeremiah Peterson, 40, decided it was time to make a drastic change after realising he couldn’t keep up with his three kids during a family hike.

Tipping the scales at 292lbs, the American from Montana admitted he took a long look at himself in the mirror one day and realised he had to make a difference for his family.

He wrote on his Instagram page: “I found myself running out of breath and having to take breaks way before my 9-, 7-, and 6-year-old kids.

“I looked myself in the mirror and thought about my family, my responsibilities and how I would be 40 in less than a year. I knew I HAD to make some serious changes in my life.”

Peterson opted to use the keto diet – a high fat and low carb diet – to see if he could gain instant results.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is just one name to swear by keto that relies on a normal metabolic process called ketosis where the body, starved of carbs for energy, starts to burn fat reserves instead.

He would also exercise twice a day which included taking his dog for a two mile walk in the morning and hitting the gym later in the day.

It wasn’t long before Peterson started seeing incredible results.

He said on his social media account: “Since I turned the keto wheel I have found I don’t crave stuff that jacks my stomach up anymore.

“I don’t feel disgusting and bloated after I eat and my body feels so great the next morning in the gym.”

He has documented every step of his progress on Instagram that has now topped a whopping 95,000 followers.

ABC 7 report how he went from a size 42 jeans to 33 in 150 days.

He added: “For myself, a lot of my self-confidence has come from meeting my fitness and body image goals from my transformation.

“If you’re suffering from a lack of self-confidence and searching for a way to improve yours, try setting some fitness or weight loss goals.

“When you achieve them, you’ll gain the confidence to believe you can do more.”
