Jamie (65) improved his cognitive ability on a carnivore diet

My name is Jamie, I am a 65 year old male now on one year Carnivore.  I am 5’11 and probably weigh 185 now. My all time highest five years ago was 210. I am also a prostate cancer survivor going on two years now.  Prior to a couple of years ago, my health was good, and I thought all was well since I was a life long athlete who exercised fairly hard nearly every day.  In my 30’s I was a competitive marathon runner (ie, several Boston marathons), but over time I gained some weight (from 180 to 200ish) and noticed onset of joint pain (including trigger thumb). Then the prostate cancer diagnosis, which fortunately was caught before it had spread—).  Started keto a couple years  years ago, liked it, but realized I could not control carbs (potatoes, berries, bread).  Since going all carnivore a year ago, the joint pain is gone, borderline high bp is gone, body composition is better, skin tone much better, sleep better.  Much time in the sun last summer with no burning.  No sunscreen.  Really everything is better.  In particular I notice that cognitive ability has improved. Body scan shows a marked decrease of body fat and visceral fat.  Triglyceride/HDL Is great.  Inflammatory markers great. 

Prior to carnivore and keto, I basically ate what I wanted (lots of pizza, chips, ice cream etc.) figuring I could just exercise it off.  As time went by, that strategy began to crumble and I was in denial about it.
I love this way of eating, and know I will maintain it. I’m two meals a day, steak, eggs, cheese, bacon and butter. A little dairy in my coffee.  No organ meat.  A little veg once a week with steak.  Very little.
I would be happy to share my story, and think it could help others.
