Hi, my name is Joan and I want to tell you about my experience with the zero carb diet.
Let’s start with the stats. August 1, 2017: 54 yr old female, runner, 5’4”, 122 lbs – no weight to lose, no outward health problems.
Over the years had become more and more intolerant (digestively) to certain foods, starting with dairy, then moving on to fructose, all the fodmaps. Eventually it just seemed like everything caused stomach distress, constipation, and inflammation. Eyes were always puffy, would feel vaguely achy after too much wheat.
I ate meat
I accidentally ate all meat one day and was stunned at how great my stomach felt. I went with it just for some relief for a few days. Stumbled onto Dr. Baker, and the rest is history.
My concerns were how the running would go. Total hell at first, but 5 weeks in the adaptation took place and the running is better than ever.
Been on ZC for 5 months. Stats now: 5’4”, 116 lbs. Constipation completely cured, inflammation gone. Running like a boss. I Eat 70% steak, 30% ground beef, eggs, shrimp and pork.
