Valerie lost fat on a fasting carnivore lifestyle

Share This Post

Hi there! Got some fasting success  stories for you. I have been on the Carnivore Diet for 6 months now and was previously on and off Keto, which was not successful for me as I am seriously sensitive to carbs. I started doing IF of 20 hours/day while on Keto but then kind of fell off that bandwagon about 4 months before I started Carnivore.
 
There is a serious amount of weight that I need to get rid of (190 lbs) that all came on due to carbon monoxide poisoning of 3 months and the resulting sequelae, not the least of which was the lack of mitochondria. Many illnesses resulted from that, including 3 combined heart attacks/strokes due to nocturnal hypoxia.
 
I have pretty much tried every diet known to woman. I have never over-eaten and have followed a more healthy diet for most of my life (and I’m almost 70 now). I have also done several water-only 40 day fasts (in my 20’s). So far as physical activity goes, while I’ve been rather sedentary since 2010 (due to illnesses), I was always very athletic and strong. In short, I never deserved to be THIS fat! Carnivore lifestyle is giving me my life back.
 
I reestablished an IF of 16-20 hours, alternating, when I started on Carnivore, as well as a 1-2 day Dry Fast whenever my weight loss seemed to stall (about once a month). That is usually enough to kick start the weight loss again. As of today, I am down 74 lbs from January 2019, with 50 of that from the Carnivore Diet.
 
Currently I am on day 4 of a 5-day Dry Fast, and doing well. Though I still have a long way to go, I feel confident I will be successful at getting ALL of the excess fat off and restoring my health as well.
 
Onward!
 
Dr. Valerie
