Charlie lost weight, and improved his insulin resistance on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

About 2 years ago the VA had me attend nutrition training as my weight was going up and up. Calories in, calories out. I was so hungry I kept failing.  VA offered to send me to the SAME training over again.
 
16 or 17 Months ago my A1C hit 6.1 so I started reading and vids. Then one evening one of my feet wouldn’t fit into my shoe.
 
VA said I was heading towards diabetes. Offering me the SAME training again.
 
Decided to go Keto/Carnivore but to avoid Keto Flu I went on an 8 day fast. While fasting still in Day Eight  I went in for my bloodwork at the VA. They were shocked at my LDL and Triglycerides count and told me to stop fat and meat and take pills.  THEN I called them out: I went from hardly any meat to total fasting, my numbers go up and they blamed food I was not eating.  QUACKS!
 
That was 13 months ago, last November. 
 
Now I know FAR MORE than my VA doc and VA nutritionist who can’t even explain to me what is a Triglyceride and why LDL is supposed to be bad.
 
Autumn of 2018 I hit 262 pounds. By this Summer I hit and maintain 210 -217 range comfortably. 
 
No more near fainting spells if I don’t eat every three hours.  Now I can go for DAYS without eating.
 
Funny, my pre-med son is learning chemistry and biology and he agrees that LDL is just a (harmless) transport vehicle.  His current training is the opposite of what the practicing  docs and nutritionist AR the VA say.  For brevity I gave them links to Dr. Berg’s short videos explaining LDL and Triglycerides. They both said, “I can’t believe you “trust” a chiropractor more than us. 
 
“trust”…….   “trust”……    how about new research instead of blind faith in dogma?
 
In reviewing a year of food logging I see that I consume a lot of eggs.  Vegetarians would say this is carnivore. But I must be 100% honest and admit this to ask: “Shouldn’t we include (chicken) eggs along with meat?”  
 
Yes, except for about 20 days I kept a log of everything I shoved in my face. If Dr. Baker would like this data I can send the log file.
 
Today’weight 211 pounds, down from 262 about a year ago.
 
I hope that eating eggs could be considered “carnivore” for the purposes of this program. I’ve watched all the Dr. Fung vids on the chemistry of Keto/Carnivore. Seems to me eggs could be considered “carnivore” as the VA docs still claim they’re as deadly as meat.
 
Thank you for your time. I would like to become a coach because I have learned so much and would love to share this with others. It simply works.
 
I neglected to mention one COMPLETELY unexpected benefit: mental clarity.  It felt like a (brain) fog lifted.
