Not sure about keto...

Answered on August 19, 2014

Bakcground info: I am 15 years old, male and eat paleo some meals and cheat terribly others

I have always had a strong jawline but after watching a movie I had an idea. I am 5'11 166 lbs, I lift and am generally stronger for my age. What would I need to do to make by jaw look better, such as a strong jaw, yet thin sort of face? (Keto would be my choice of weight loss) Would losing weight do that? The only thing stopping me is my concern of losing gym progress

Paleo + keto saved my life. Not everyone responds the same to every diet.

He asks if losing weight will give him the strong jaw he wants from seeing a movie. And if losing weight(ketosis) would do that.

He asks if he should try to lose weight with ketosis. My answer to that is that I don't think he should given the circumstances.

There is no way to spot reduce fat.

A ketogenic diet might make the bones in your face look more prominent because it depletes glycogen which causes water loss, but the weight-losing characteristics of ketogenic diets are widely misunderstood. A mildly ketogenic diet will probably not cause you to lose weight. An extremely ketogenic diet tends to suppress appetite, and for that reason it may cause weight loss. But an extremely ketogenic diet is dangerous at your age because it often stunts growth. If I were you, I would stay away from ketogenic diets until you're older. They could hurt you.

DON'T GO INTO KETO. Paleo is not a keto diet. Keto will ruin your life. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies and ignore the sub 100 gram people. That's not Paleo. Paleo is NOT low carb. It's the right carbs.

Well take this with a grain of salt but are you familiar with Human Growth Hormone/HGH? A good way to increase it naturally is with a sprinting protocol, like Sprint 8. HIIT has an anabolic effect, will help you lose fat and will only help you to gain muscle also. Ketosis would not be my first recommendation for you (or my second).

Your jaw is based on the bones of your face - if you already have a strong jawline as a 15 yr old boy, enjoy that. If you lose weight, the rest of your body will suffer, as there is no such thing as spot reducing - you lose weight all over your body. Sometimes the face will be the last place to lose, and young men who have overly prominent jawlines are very very thin. Just eat well and wait to grow up. When you hit your early / mid twenties, your face will become more chiseled naturally. By the time you are 40, you will have a very sculpted face and you might WISH you had some of that youthful fullness back. Please enjoy the specific beauty of your youth - once it is gone you will never get it back. Take lots of photos of yourself so that you can see and love the way you look. I'm sure you are wonderful. All the best to you!

You have already answered the question yourself with "cheat terribly other".

I'm not trying to be an idiot but ketosis requires (for most at least) pretty strict adherence in carb and protein intake. If you're not prepared for watching those two then you will end up not getting the full effect anyway.

Besides that, you're 15 and your weight is fine. Restricting carbs is always a good idea in my mind. But there's a difference to doing and entering ketosis. It's impossible to say if ketosis would negatively impact your gym progress. Personally, after many weeks of adaption, I now feel that I'm able to progress and possibly add a little muscle.

continue to lift heavy weights, and create a calories deficit. keto might not be so optimal for you. yes you would loose weight but you might also loose a bit of power in tha gym.

get your carbs, create a caloric deficit and lift them weightand youll shrink right up
