Sara loses weight, resolves pre-diabetes on carnivore diet

Share This Post

This is my video-a follow up: April of this year, 2019, I had blood work done right as I was beginning to transition away from a mostly whole food, plant based diet. Total Cholesterol was 170; HDL was 46; Trigs were 64 and LDL was 111. FAST FORWARD to this week, November 2019, having been low carb since mid-April and then going 80-90% carnivore in July-today. New blood work: total Cholesterol is 186; HDL 66; trigs 55; LDL 109. My heart disease risk ratio went from 3.7, down to 2.8 My Cholesterol numbers have IMPROVED since going mostly carnivore and eating a predominately animal based diet high in fat (including saturated fat). A1c was not recorded in April, my A1c this time was 5.6.

My weight is now stable in the 121lbs-123lbs range, without tracking/counting/weighing. Digestion issues continue to be resolved.

UPDATE: Attached is my recent cholesterol panel. 

 

Blood pressure reading #1 was 100/66; blood pressure reading #2 was 92/64; blood pressure reading #3 was 102/60. Pulse reading was 68. Weight, with clothes on, was 124lbs/BMI of a 20.0 

 

These numbers reflect me transitioning from a mostly ‘whole foods, plant based diet’, to general low carb in April, and then relaxed carnivore starting in July (moved to 80-90% animal based diet at that point). So 8 months low carb, with around 5 of those being mostly carnivore. I had blood work done in April and my numbers have improved since then, especially my HDL. In April that was a 46 and my doctor was not happy with that. Now, after being carnivore for a few months my HDL is a 66. 😊 My coronary heart disease risk was a 3.7 in April and is now a 2.8. 

 

Also, the fasting time is timestamped wrong on the form-I started fasting at 6:30pm and had my blood drawn the following morning, at around 10am.

 

Btw: I’m a 41 year old, perimenopausal female of 3 kids, who’s a stay at home mom and fairly sedentary (no intentional exercise currently).
