Lori lost weight and gained strength on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

Hi, I’m Lori. I’m a 52 year old female. Mother of two grown sons, and busy with lots of homemaking and volunteer work. I don’t have a radical healing success story. But, it’s still big to me and my life.

 

Stalling weightloss on the keto diet

 

I had been overweight and miserable for 30 years. Over a year ago I found the keto diet and was able to lose 50 pounds and drastically reduced problems with a thyroid autoimmune condition. I even got off my meds before weight loss stalled. Like, stalled completely. No matter what I did. I was discouraged. Obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease are rampant in my family. I knew this was my future if I didn’t find a way to finish this journey. 

 

Breaking through on the carnivore diet

 
I was finally within a few pounds of a healthy body weight. And yet, the body composition was way off. I still had fat around the middle and felt I needed to be fitter. I’d been reading posts on this page for a while but was hesitant to try. But I really wanted to reach my goal of getting healthy and aging well, medication free. So I started carnivore. I wondered if this change would help me be able to lose fat and build muscle even at my age. Within days, my belly was shrinking and the bloating was gone. My workouts were easier and I felt stronger. I began to run farther and could do 50 pushups without stopping. I loved the food! I eat meat, eggs, and add cream to my coffee. I occasionally have some cheese or plain Greek yogurt. I eat until I’m full and haven’t counted a macro yet! I eat 2 meals a day, zero hunger.
 
Zero autoimmune symptoms. 

 

The results

 

So… after only 8 weeks, I’m shocked by the carnivore success. I lost 13.2 pounds. But the real winner is that I decreased my body fat percentage by 2.3%. And I increased skeletal muscle by 4.5%! 
 
I feel wonderful! And my family has been so supportive of this lifestyle change. (Except for one older male family member who stated in his southern accent, “that doesn’t sound very lady-like”, ha!) So I think I’m a carnivore for life. I feel like this is the beginning of freedom, rooted in simplicity. I’ve even had people tell me I’m reverse aging. Meat heals but it also fuels the awesomeness of a radically healthy, energetic life!
