I started keto mid August 2019 cause I needed to feel better, badly. I went on to carnivore in early October 2019 and then things really took off. I didn’t start a ketogenic diet cause of my weight. I started cause I was always feeling tired, my joints were hurting, I had a hard time recovering after workouts, my knees and elbows were in pain. Always!. I had heartburn every single day. My doctor proscribed me prilosec and never asked me what I ate!? Prilosec didn’t do anything. Also headaches were common on a daily basis. Took a lot of over the counter pain meds. Interesting that not one single doctor has ever asked me about what I eat! I never slept very well either. There’s probably more issues than I even remember.
Im turning 42 in 2 weeks. Im enjoying working out. I recover well, inflammation is gone, no more aching joints. I’m stronger than when I ate a carb based diet. Basically a plant based diet I guess. Never even realized how much plant food I was eating until I started carnivore. My BP is good(117/78). I have a lot of energy and I sleep well. I workout before work in the mornings and when I come home from work I have plenty of energy for my family. I didn’t used to. So that’s really awesome. So 3 and half month on a ketogenic diet(1.5 month on carnivore) and I’ve never felt better. No more heartburn, inflammation is gone, no more headaches. Never going back to eating SAD. Oh yeah, and mood is better as well…
