Oct 22, 2018 Hi Guys, It seems if I follow a strict keto diet by keeping the carbs low, my face becomes gaunt as the fat loss happens from face first then rest of the body. If I don't control my carb intake and have 150 - 200 grams of carb per day, my waist becomes 33 inches and my body fat hovers about 16-17%. I want to bring down my body fat to 14% and waist to 32 inches without rigorous exercise. Is it possible by following certain type of diet without making my face gaunt? Thanks.
