Richard improved his arthritis and joint pain on a carnivore diet

A Typical Day On The Carnivore Diet


I am 57 years old. On July 17, 2017, I weighed 270 lbs. I am 5’10”. I started on a ketogenic diet on that day. I started on my carnivore diet on January 1, 2018. At that time, I was 223 lbs. During the six weeks I have been eating Carnivore, I have lost an additional 18 lbs and 4 inches off my waist, equal to the 4 inches I lost in my five months of the Keto diet.


Relief From Osteoarthritis Pain


Also, I have osteoarthritis in my left hip. It had been painful to get up from a chair, and I had not been able to put on my left sock for the last three years. The pain when I get up is gone. I still can’t put on my sock, but I pull my sock up once I get it over my head. I’m hoping soon I will be able to put on my sock.


Transforming Fitness Routine With Carnivore Diet


I upped my exercise level when I started keto but felt tired after my workouts. I now work out three times a day and have much more energy.


Overcoming Insomnia With Carnivore Diet


I have been an insomniac for at least 15 years. I haven’t slept a full night in my bed for years. Almost immediately after I started my carnivore diet, I slept all night on my bed. I had been waking up 3 to 4 times a night to urinate.


For the last three nights, I have not got up to urinate once. I wake up full of energy and immediately start my morning workout. I usually sleep 5 to 6 hours a night now. I have a Fitbit that records my sleep. Before Carnivore, I was sleeping maybe 3 hours a night.


On January 6, 2018, my father died unexpectedly. During this period, I did not fall back into stress eating, which had been my habit in the past.


A Typical Day On The Carnivore Diet


My normal eating is coffee with butter and heavy cream before the morning workout at 4:30 am. At 9:00 am, I usually have about a pound of some type of beef. At about 5:00 pm, I will have between 10 oz to 1 lb of beef. Early on, I had pork for dinner about every three days.


It was not filling, so I now am almost exclusively beef for dinner. Saturday morning, I usually have 3 to 4 eggs and about 3/4 lb of bacon. My intake is constantly changing. I eat until full some days. I eat more than others.
