I have been eating carnivore since December 26, 2019 – 576 days as I write this.
I am 59 years old, I am 5’ 1” tall and weighed 190 lbs at my heaviest and now I weigh 130.
I have lost 60 lbs.
The first positive thing that happened with carnivore is the complete elimination of my horrible and ongoing heartburn! This happened after about 1 month Carnivore.
The most serious problem that was solved is my high blood pressure. I have struggled with uncontrolled high blood pressure for many years. Doctors tried 2 medications at once and so many various other blood pressure medications and I still had high blood pressure. After about a year eating carnivore, my blood pressure is normal. NORMAL!
Before carnivore, I had “fat hands”, a painful swollen feeling in my hands and joints. This problem was so debilitating in the morning when I’d wake. It took me awhile to “warm up” my hands for use. I sought out help from 2 different doctors. One doctor insisted that carpel tunnel surgery would help. I never got the surgery and thought I’d just wait and see if things improved after carnivore eating. Today I have absolutely no problem with my hands and joints. I was likely suffering from inflammation but regular doctors never came to this determination. Their solution was surgery.
There are many other nice changes that have happened. For instance, I sleep better but that may be also due to aligning my body’s circadian rhythm with the sun. I block blue light after dark and try to remove artificial lighting whenever possible. I have an amazing feeling of well being. I can’t even describe it, but, a feeling within me all the time that is so pleasant. I just feel good! I love it. I don’t get sleepy in the middle of the day or when I drive for long periods of time. I have an even feeling with my moods and just a great sense of control.
I am more energetic but I really haven’t exercised like I did in the past. I used to “kill” myself exercising when I was on diets in the past. With carnivore, all I’ve done really is walk, swim, some bike riding but I’m terribly inconsistent with exercise. I just do it when I feel like it. This is so great!
