An obese girlfriend who refused to tie the knot with a size 24 wedding dress has lost 51 kilograms by making a simple diet adjustment.

When Breeana North's husband proposed that she knew she could not walk down the aisle with a weight of 122 kg, she refused to "tighten" her obese frame in a size 24 wedding dress.

And it was not just Breeana who saw the results, with her now husband Tye, 29, she also lost 101 pounds for the big day to get into her tux.

The 24-year-old from Hunter Valley, New South Wales, had an image of the wedding dress of her dream in the back of her mind as a motivation to lose weight and both she and Tye decided to switch to a strict ketogenic diet.

What is a keto diet?

In a ketogenic diet, people eat a very small amount of carbohydrates, a moderate amount of protein and a large proportion of fat per day.

This means that the body uses fat as its main source of fuel and breaks it down into "ketone bodies" (or "ketones") in a process called ketosis.

People with a keto diet generally eat only 20-50 g of carbohydrates per day. As an example, 50 g of carbohydrates is equivalent to 2 slices of bread and a banana.

"When Tye proposed to me, I was on the moon, but a wave of sadness invaded me at the same time, I knew I wanted to marry him, but not the way we were," said Breeana, a customer service assistant.

"We were both so obese and had terrible eating habits, we got drunk with mountains of fried food, sweets and four liters of soda every day without any problem.

Breeana told Tye, a security officer, that she would only marry him if they made a solid effort to be healthy, and he agreed.

"I had heard about the keto diet before, but I was very skeptical, I thought it was just another fad diet," Breeana said.

Just a few days after going to Keto, the couple said they had much more energy, they were sleeping better, they had better skin and they were happier.

"We eliminated everything bad that we had in the fridge and started over with keto-suitable foods," Breeana said.

"Tye and I also got a personal trainer and we started going to the gym five days a week, the weight just started to melt in. That was amazing. & # 39;

By the time the wedding day arrived, the couple had lost 152 kilos between them.

"I felt like a princess the day of my wedding, I never imagined that I would ever wear a size 6. I even had to take it out a bit, since it was a bit too big," Breeana said.

And seeing Tye healthier also after losing the weight was such a good feeling. He still has a long journey ahead, but he is very determined. It is very inspiring

"I could not have done it without him by my side."

"It was the best thing we could have done for our relationship," he said.

Breeana's life has changed since she lost weight, since she had been battling obesity since she was in school.

The harassment he experienced due to his weight became so severe that he left school in year 11.

"I had a really bad time, people threw my backpack to the dumpster, followed me home, made fun of me and just made my life a hell because I was fat," he recalled.

Life after school only got worse when she was isolated in her house and comfort ate at all times, but after meeting Tye at an online dating site, she fell in love immediately.

"In fact, we used to have a hard time fitting into a queen-size bed, and I could not even hug him properly for a hug, but now we're very passionate and closer than ever," he said.

"I'd always just worn tracksuits or big sweaters with leggings in. I thought I was hiding my fat, but it only made me look worse," he said.

"It's amazing to be able to go to any store and find something of my size, I have a lot more confidence, doing this with the love of my life has been very rewarding, we really motivate and inspire each other.
