TODAY's Al Roker has become one of the more outspoken advocates of the Keto diet, defending it fiercely against attacks from vocal opponents such as Jillian Michaels, as well as relatively lower-profile dieticians, in addition to sharing recipes — such as a Keto-friendly take on bread. The fact is, Roker says, it "works for me" — and you can't argue with results.
Now, he's revealed just how well the diet has worked for him, revealing, "I’ve lost about 40 pounds." Roker announced his new bottom line on the TODAY show while whipping up a batch of Keto-friendly sloppy joe's — which, incidentally, he pairs with that Keto bread.
He said his blood work looks good too these days. "My cholesterol — just had them checked a couple of weeks ago," he explained on the broadcast. "Everything’s good."
Consider this photo showing Roker's recent 40-pound weight loss on Keto, as evidenced in this pic he posted on Instagram just this morning after the broadcast.
And here's the before-and-after Keto shots, side by side. What do you think of the transformation — and his approach?
