A little about me.
52 yo, 177cm (5’10”)
Weight in 2009 107kg
Current weight 79kg
Have knee stability issues and have had 8 operations on them with the 1st being when I was 15, last one being 25 yrs ago.
Minimal cartilage in knees so have not played sport since early 20’s
With minimal exercise and a lot of travel for work, weight has always been an issue during adult life.
In 2012 I started exercising (walking then building up to running) and eating differently, dropped weight from 107kg to 75kg but when I stopped, it quickly went back up to 100kg
In June 2018, I watched the Magic Pill movie and decided that changing to ketogenic lifestyle for long term health would be beneficial.
My reasoning for this decision was that I had watched my father suffer from Parkinson’s Disease and dementia as well as working part time in mental health, and seeing the links between food and mental health I wanted to try to avoid these issues.
I started the next day and over the following 6 mths dropped 25kg and felt fantastic everyday.
I had slowly lowered my carbs from 20gm a day to under 10gm so in June 2019, I thought I’d try a month of zero carb, so tried carnivore.
My body felt so much better so I never went back to ketogenic.
Since going carnivore the pains in my arthritic knees have all but gone, my body composition has changed more, with less fat and a lot leaner muscle
The past 3 January’s I have participated in an 800km in 8 day charity bike ride in Thailand, and seeing the difference has been amazing
January 2018 – SAD completed and was tired most nights
January 2019 – Ketogenic had lots of energy, longest day was 150km which I rode fasted for 24hrs
January 2020 – Carnivore similar energy to 2019, though felt a lot stronger, again rode fasted especially when provided lunch was not suitable.

My name is Josh and I am 32 years old. Back in December my wife and I had a baby, the months leading up the delivery of our baby girl, I was eating anything and everything. If the wife would get cravings I would get cravings. All of a sudden we are sent into a lockdown due to Covid which just got my diet out of control and I desperately needed a change. I started to feel very out of shape, weighing my heaviest at 210 lbs.
Shedding the lockdown weight
I have seen a free online 30 day shred competition pop up on my Facebook one day that was starting May 1st, 2020. I thought to myself, hey I may as well register and that will be a great start. I ended up winning that competition and with that came 3 months free training from a very reputable trainer based out of Los Angeles. My diet consisted of animal based products and a lot of training! 6 days a week, twice a day. I did a daily fasted cardio early in the morning before work, and then I would do some weight lifting at night.
Fast forward to today I am at my goal weight of 180 lbs. Thanks for allowing me to share my carnivore diet success story!
First pic February, second was August 24th 2020. 6 months of strict carnivore. Up 10 lbs, down 3% body fat
Hi, my name is Jeff. I am 60 years old. I want to tell you what the carnivore diet did for me, and how it got me jacked.
A history of fitness
As a kid I looked at bodybuilders of the day as heroes
I always wanted to be like that
I was into sports and worked out
I then got in the fitness industry and between 1981 to 2001 – i owned, operated, managed health clubs, fitness centers. I trained people, i gave seminars on fitness, exercise and nutrition… i was involved in the manufacturing, distribution, marketing and sales of Nutritional supplements, and educated people on what and how to use supplementation.
Believing the wrong thing
I was taught, believed, and practiced the protocol of eating 6-7x per day (every 2.5 to 3 hours to maintain an anabolic state and a positive nitrogen balance, and to avoid going catabolic)… consisting of 50%+ Carbs, 50% Protein (as lean and fat free as possible) and as low of Fats as possible… i believed in 1.0 to 1.5 g of Protein per Pound of Body-weight per day, and a minimum of 1.0 g of Carbs per Pound of Body-weight per day… Everything that I knew, practiced and taught others was WRONG…
Trying so hard
I did not know that I didn’t know… I worked out hard, I ate correctly, I was dedicated, motivated, and disciplined… BUT I wasn’t ever getting the RESULTS that I wanted, no matter how hard I tried
I ate less
I exercised more
I was big, I was strong, BUT, I didn’t look like I wanted to look…
Shocked by a friends photo
Then in May 2017… i saw a photo of one of my best friend’s – Sam, who I had not seen for 3-4 years… i was shocked, astounded, awestruck, speechless… i knew Sam for over 30 years… in that photo… he looked like a Greek God… i had to know WTF … i contacted him immediately…
Getting over my own beliefs
It took him from the beginning of May 2017 to the 3rd week of June 2017 to convince me to try what he was telling me to do…
It was contradictory and opposite to everything that I knew and had been told, and taught me entire life…
I finally surrendered… only because I knew Sam… and I saw what ge had done… he obviously knew something that i didn’t know…
I started my first day on June 26, 2017… the day I took my first “Before” photo…
Within 2 weeks I felt, and saw changes that I had not experienced before with any diet i had ever tried… i kept at it, and continued to research and investigate everything and to educate myself more…
I have never stopped or looked back…
My Journey continues… i adjust, tweak, modify as I go… on my personal Journey to see how far I can take this… in all aspects of my life…
Life doesn’t have to end at 50…
If done right… 50 is just the beginning of an incredible future…
Please join me on the Journey of your own… i am here to help educate you, inform you, help you, inspire and motivate you… your success is my personal reward !!
When I started off, I was only doing the Intermittent Fasting, as Sam had convinced me to do, I was not including the ketogenic/ low carb diet at this point
I was doing a 16/8 IF Schedule – 16 Hours Fasting Period and an 8-Hour Feeding Period and, within the first 2 weeks, I felt, and, saw changes that I had not experienced before on other “diets” that I had tried – within the first 2 weeks, I knew that something was “happening” !!
I did NOT change my foods (eating, my diet) – I just continued to eat the same things that I had been eating (including carbs), but, now, I was eating everything during the 8-hour Feeding Period – I was doing 4 meals a day (eating a meal every 2.5 hours +/-)
Narrowing the window
Then, Sam asked me how I felt, and, how I was doing – and, when I told him that I felt and was doing great – he had me switch the IF schedule from 16/8 to an 18/6 schedule... within 3-4 days, the immediate problem that I was experiencing was trying to eat all 4 of my meals within the 6 hour Feeding window – it was almost impossible – too much food – so, I adjusted and changed to 3 meals – one meal every 2 hours
So, I was still doing high carbs, high protein, low fat – because at this point, I did not have all of the information, and, I did not know any better
the low carb discussion didn’t enter the picture until about month 2 – and, then, from month 2 through about month 4-5, my carb intake went from over 200+g per day, down to 150g per day, to 100g per day, to 50g per day, eventually down to about 35g per day, a level that I then stayed at for several months, as I continued to educate myself on everything, and, to tweak and adjust other facets of my foods/ diet – and, although I had adjusted the Carbs down to a low carb intake – I was still doing the balance of my foods as high protein, and, moderate fats (which I still believed to be necessary – keeping my protein high for muscle building and maintenance, and, low fats, so that I didn’t get fat)
Feeding window on a crack
Over time – during the first 6 months (end of June when I started) – I went from the initial 16/8, then to 18/6, then to 19/5, and, eventually, by October 2017, I was on an IF 20/4 schedule – and, as noted, I adjusted my Carbs from over 200g/day, down to 35g/day… but, I was still doing 3 meals/ day during the 4-hour Feeding Period – and, I stayed on this Schedule from Oct 2017, up through May-June 2018 – – during which time I brought my Carbs down to 20 g per day – and, this schedule lasted from about June, 2018 up through Oct 2018 – at which time I kept the same foods, during 3 meals, but, adjusted the IF Schedule again from 20/4 to 22/2 (eating the 3 meals one every hour) and, I then stayed on this schedule (22/2), with minor adjustments along the way in the foods – but, still, high proteins, moderate fats, and low carbs – from October 2018, up through February, 2019 – one of the adjustments that I made during this period is to change from 3 large/ regular sized meals to 2 regular meals (the first meal of the day, and, the last meal of the day, with just a snack (like peanut butter, sugar free jello, almonds, or pork rinds, string cheese, or similar) in between the 2 meals
Somehow, not by any thought or planning, one day, during February, I couldn’t eat the 2nd meal, I was just full, and, not hungry – so, I had just eaten the first regular meal, and, the snack, and that was it… then, this feeling, of not wanting, or needing the last meal, continued – and, all of a sudden, not by choice, or planning, my IF Schedule went from 22/2 to 23/1 and, I was eating everything within 1 hour everyday – which is what I continue to do up to now
In March 2019, during additional, extensive research – I made a decision to adjust my Macros to a true ketogenic formula plan – 75% Fats, 20% Protein, and, under 5% Carbs (I was actually under 2% Carbs by this point) – within 2 weeks I was seeing, and, feeling immediate differences and great results – I truly believe that having too much protein (which I thought was absolutely necessary as an active bodybuilder for not only adding new muscle, but, to maintain the hard earned muscle that I had) – but, I was wrong – now, looking back, I truly believe thgat the Protein, the extra protein, was an obstacle, and, holding me back from further gains – especially the Whey Protein Powder supplement shake that I was doing as one of my meals every day (which turns out to be the worst form of protein to ingest because of the immediate insulin spikes it causes) – the leaner the proteins, the proteins absent sufficient fat, the quicker it is digested, and, the more insulin that is produced in conjunction with the protein consumption.
So, not by planning, not by conscious choice – I somehow ended up on an IF Schedule of 23/1 – which, by operational definition, is the same as, or, very similar, and, close enough to the OMAD (“One Meal A Day) diet that people talk about – because although during my 1-hour Feeding Period I am eating multiple times (2 regular meals, and, a snack in between) – I am basically consuming all of my foods non-stop during that 1 hour period.
My current WOE
my current Macros are approx. Calories (2,200 to 2,400) / Proteins (0.4 to 0.5 g per pound (so 90-100g/day)) 20% of my diet) / Carbs (under 10g/day) under 2% of my diet)), and / Fats (upwards of 200g/day) over 75% of my diet)) – all consumed during my 1-hour Feeding Period – and, then, for the next 23 hours – the Fasting Period, I do not eat anything of any kind whatsoever.
I feel great, I feel healthy – I am never hungry, I have lots of energy, and lots of mental focus.
