Matt improved diabetes on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

Hi, I’m Matt.

Starting with keto for metabolic syndrome

At 365lbs, high blood pressure rising, fatty liver getting worse, T2 worsening, cholesterol skyrocketing, it was time to do something. I Started Keto 1/1/19, strictly 20g carb max per day calories from fat 70% min = dropped 23 lbs, and felt like things were starting to stabilize.

Switching to carnivore

 I switched on 2/1/19 to Carnivore (Full carnivore, save some botanicals and ACV as homeopathic supplements). Within 3 days the pain from C3-4, and C6-7 8mm spinal stenosis’ vanished. Yes, vanished! Inflammation throughout my body wooshed away, along with a ton of extra water weight (Not dehydrated as pea is correct shade, and skin snaps back when pulled/pinched). 2nd week in February I did a liver detox, and seeing how easily I was able to fast thru that, I started OMAD. I then thought I’d try a 48 hour strict dry fast.

Fasting regime

 Ok, that was hard, but it did it’s work. I figure with all of the body fat I’m burning, I’ve got to be releasing a ton of toxins in into my system, so I’ve instituted 3x week coffee enema, which really seems to be doing the trick. Now, I’ve incorporated morning walks, and graduated to 3×42 fasting on mineral salts, water, tea, and black coffee only. 

Off most of my meds

Feasting 2500 -3000 cal at 80% from fat in between fasts. Since 2/1/19 another 23 lbs! In that period, based on my scales body fat%, I’ve actually gained 3 lbs of lean mass (no resistance training yet). I am off of all diabetic (Glucose is more stable and lower than when on meds), high blood pressure (Dropped 30/20, and resting pulse has dropped from mid 80’s to mid 60’s), cholesterol, and sleep aid/depression meds. I’m actually just waking up fully rested on my own at 5am when I used to have to set an alarm for 8:30am. 

Drugs are not the solution

I’m awaiting today’s blood work to see if I can safely get off of Testosterone and Gout meds. CVS keeps wishfully sending me reminders to order more drugs . . . but, I don’t think the cause of my illnesses was drug deficiencies. I’m pretty sure Carnivore, IF, and EF are working wonders!
