 am 69 years old male and have been 99% carnivore for 8 months.

 
15 years ago I had surgery and chemotherapy for testicular cancer. Now I have Hypothyroidism and Hypogonadism.

During the first 2 months carnivore my energy went up, tripled my push ups, doubled my pull-ups, gained more knee/hip flexibility, and added 15 pounds body weight. During 1 year keto I lost 15 pounds and could not build muscle. Overall felt great and confident that I was regaining my youth.
 
At the 3 month mark I started to wake up in the morning with stiff hands, knees and hips. My knees began to hurt more every following week until at about the 6 month mark I could not walk without pain. This surprised me because my left knee had never in my life ever had pain.
 
After the 6 month crisis my knees slowly became less painful so that at 8 months my only concern now is to regain the flexibility I had at month 2. Overall feeling confident again about regaining my youth.
 
At 7 months I lost the urgency to pee and occasional accidental leak during the daytime. A problem I’ve had for the past 30 years. Great development!
 
I’ve had night leg cramps for the past 10 years. Experimenting with the carnivore diet and salt help me discover I was sodium deficient although my blood tests for sodium were normal. I now eat around 2 – 3 tablespoons of salt daily and the cramping disappeared. Blood pressure remains stable at about 105/65. Another win for me!
 
Waist size went from 34 to 33. Body fat maybe dropped from 22% to 17%. Best shape my body has seen since college days.
 
Overall carnivore is a win for me and hoping for more positive results.
