When it comes to relationship milestones, most of us celebrate an engagement or wedding anniversary. But last week, Sharon Sandhu took to Instagram to toast her eight-month relationship-with the keto diet.

"Happy 8 months of Keto to me," the 34-year-old from Canada wrote in the caption. "My journey through keto started on Oct.1st 2017 at 172lbs. Now 8 months later down over 40lbs at 131lbs. A healthy outside starts with the inside - you are what you eat." (Related: How the Keto Diet Transformed Jen Widerstrom's Body In 17 Days)

In the four photos she posted, Sandhu showed her followers how much her body has changed in eight months since starting this high-fat, low-carb diet plan. She credits her keto-approved meals for her amazing weight loss, but she also walks on a regular basis and is planning to enhance her exercise routine.

"I wanted to share my transformation so that I could inspire others," she tells Health. "Being healthy really starts from the food you eat." (Related: The Keto Diet Meal Plan For Beginners)

Sandhu also uses her social media account to post photos of recipe ideas, like spaghetti squash with cheese and chicken, and keto-friendly chocolate chip cookies.

Though it was initially used to help people control epileptic seizures, the keto diet has surged in popularity as a weight-loss strategy. The goal is to achieve ketosis, a state in which the body uses fat as its primary fuel, rather than carbs. (Related: Healthy High-Fat Keto Foods Anyone Can Add to Their Diet)

Not all nutrition experts are totally on board with it. But many RDs say it can be helpful-and anecdotal evidence, such as Sandhu's post, make a strong case.

When I asked whether Dr, wakina and his spell can set me up to my estranged husband, tbh I was never anticipating a sincere honesty from him as I made my plea because I was scared of falling into the wrong hand of someone that will take advantage of my desperation 😫. So, I avoided letting desperate situation make me do desperate things which I might regret in future. It was different with Dr. Wakina, I have never seen a man of his kind tbh, he was more like a spiritual father and guardian angel 😇 via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. My husband grew to resent and detest me but not once has my love waivered for him. However, things ended between us as we became enemies, communication ended as we live apart together. But I was deeply hurt regardless of his shortcomings 💔. He was always [filtered] me out of his life when he was seeing someone else, he even blocked me from his Facebook page. Well, the above ordeal is part of our success story today after love spell cast by Dr. Wakina, my CUPCAKE ❤ wants to be with me till the end of time 💃🌈🎉

I've been doing the keto diet for a couple of years now, and there's one thing I can tell you: the longer you follow it, the more benefits you get! It also gets much easier! That's because, once your body is fat adapted for a long period of time, it get's easier to get back into ketosis. You simply need to train your body to do it. Once you've been fat adapted for a few months, you can even add a few carbohydrates back into your diet from time to time. So understand that you aren't saying goodbye to carbs forever, you are just getting smarter about how to use them! For more go to http://www.easyketomealplan.org/
