Dear Dr Baker,
I am 74yr. old woman living alone after my husband died (2011).
I lost motivation to prepare meals and gradually came down to
just snacks, with some vegetables. My health deteriorated as my weight
increased. I was forced to face the truth, but I didn’t know what to do.
Then I learned about the carnivore diet. This was so simple! I went
shopping and began immediately. That was eight months ago . The
weight loss has been slow but fairly steady (9kgs), the rheumatism
pain I have lived with all my life is less, my hip and knee (injured
in an accident years ago) are getting stronger and more supportive.
Mentally and emotionally I am more alert and relaxed – I like myself!
Some things have been hard, giving up bread was the hardest so
obviously an addiction, but now I’m addicted to feeling better,
moving more easily, and taking up interests and hobbies again.
Life is good.
Thank you to all you men and women who have taught me so much,
supported me when I was “down”, and encouraged me with your
