Daniel improved his gout symptoms on a carnivore diet

From Keto to Carnivore: Daniel’s Weight Loss Journey


Motivated by the loss of his father at just 59 years old, Daniel found the motivation he needed to take a different path and regain control of his health.


Losing Weight on a Meat-Based Diet


At 260 pounds, Daniel searched for an effective way to lose weight, leading him into the world of keto and low-carb diets. The transition away from the standard American diet was difficult at first, but soon Daniel was able to lose nearly 130 pounds on a keto diet while incorporating fasting.


Smooth Transition to a Carnivore Diet


Daniel felt he may have lost too much weight, and after starting a carnivore diet, he was able to easily put on 20 pounds of muscle with a limited amount of effort. “I kind of shrunk down to a small stature between fasting and keto,” he recalls. “I was in a constant caloric deficit.


Once I reduced the amount of fasting I was doing, I allowed myself free range to eat, which put on a lot of muscle. My frame is much more solid now compared to what it was when I was at my lowest weight, without a whole lot of exercise.”


Daniel had a smooth transition from a meat-based ketogenic diet to a pure carnivore diet. He was happy to find that his cravings for sweet treats finally subsided after the first three months, and now he only indulges a few times per year for his birthday or special occasions.


Occasional fasting also helped him beat his cravings. “I typically do a 48 or 72 hour fast, and then I go back to eating one meal a day. I think that fasting is good for most people, and it teaches discipline.”


The Benefits of a Pure Carnivore Diet


Daniel’s one meal per day is simply meat and eggs, with an occasional serving of cheese. He recognizes it is hard for many people not to have a variety of different types of food, but for him, it works well, and he’s maintained it with ease over the last year.


Another major benefit of a carnivore diet versus a regular ketogenic diet that includes vegetables is that Daniel no longer experiences painful symptoms of gout.


Daniel’s pain from gout flare-ups had previously been so bad that he was often seeking pain medication from his doctor. “It was the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life, and I don’t wish it on anyone.”


Managing Gout with a Meat-Only Diet


“I reduced my gout with keto, but I was still having some flare-ups,” Daniel notes. “Since going carnivore, I’ve had zero flare-ups. It’s been the best year in terms of my health that I’ve ever had.”
