Hello, Meat RX team,
My name is Dragos I’m 38 and 18 months ago i started cleaning up my eating with some keto but for close to a year I’ve been mainly carnivore also eating only once a day.
I was 222lbs on Dec 31st 2018, now at 178lbs i feel better than ever.
I played waterpolo from 11 to 24 and was exercising close to 4-5 hrs a day in my teens and 20s.
Needless to say growing up in Eastern Europe in the 90s in a middle class household our red meat intake was minimal if not zero / week.
Grew up stuffing my face with carbs and sugar. I was eating a loaf of bread a day easily accompanied by lots of potatoes also was eating raw sugar most days after practice in order to partially tame my craving for protein.
Problem was a i took these bad eating habits with me in my late 20s and 30s long after i stopped working out 4-5hrs / day.
At my worst i was 222lbs ( in the 1st pic ) , constantly tired, getting very poor quality sleep, stomach and heart burns, low back, neck and knee pain was always present. I would go take naps in my car during my lunch break and going to the bathroom was not a fun experience considering the bad case of hemorrhoids i was suffering from.
I just want to point out that my muscular skeleton has never been as healthy or toned as it is now at 38 not even when i was in my peak physical shape playing in my early 20s and what’s crazy is i accomplished this in a little over a year.
These days I barely lift weights, mostly do cardio and HIIT classes at my gym + 4-5hrs of Jiu-jitsu a week.
I feel amazing and red meat is the no. 1 through no. 99 reasons this is possible.
Thank you Dr. Baker. You have changed my life.
