I had started the diet around July 17th 2018, which marks 3 months of being on this diet, and I can only say great things have happened. First allow me to preface with the issues I was currently suffering with.
A list of issues
- Chronic wrist pains ( tore the cartilage in both wrists)
- Shoulder pains not too sure what caused the pain or what the pain was, I am not a fan of going to the doctor who more than likely would have just tried to give me painkillers.
- Damaged Cartilage in my knees from wrestling
Stumbling on the JRE podcast
I was a piece of work for sure. I stumbled across Jordan Peterson on the JRE which led me to the interview with Dr. Shawn Baker. I was fascinated and the fact that I can eat beef products every day all day. I knew then and there the diet would be something that I could turn into a lifestyle, I did not anticipate the benefits to be as good as they were.
Wrists feel great now
First 6 weeks I had digestion issues (very loose stool, erratic bowl movements). However, they were something that I would keep if it meant I got to keep the results I got. My wrist pains are non-existent I can do pushups, dips, and bench presses without the excruciating pain that plagued me for years making working out more of a torture session than anything else. I do see the occasional flair up on rainy days but that’s okay.
Being able to work normally
Knee pains & shoulder pains are also non existent. I work in an environment where heavy objects are being lifted and I am on my feet 12 hours a day. I can do my job without worry of pain or discomfort.
Dropping weight effortlessly
Lastly my weight has dropped quite significantly from 213 down to a low of 183. The results are nothing short of amazing. It’s such a great feeling to watch your clothing just start to fall off. I haven’t been in this good of shape in years. I do weightlifting 6x a week, and cardio when I can now that my asthma has subsided.
I would recommend everyone to try this for at least 90 days.
