I have been eating meat only now since Christmas.

I had labs done last week and the results are in! My doctor instructed me to stay with the carnivore lifestyle because it is doing well. She has been studying it and is considering trying it herself!

Here are my lab highlights:
1. My A1c is down from 6.6 to 5.9
2. My triglycerides went from 285 to 85 (not a typo)
3. My HDL went from 35 to 58
4. My LDL went up but my HDL/LDL ratio is in the healthy range
5. Glucose went from 129 to 109
6. My testosterone went from 342 to 471
7. Not a single mineral deficiency found in my labs and I have

I went from 206 pounds to 170 pounds. The quality of my sleep has improved. No snoring or sleep apnea. My breathing is deeper. Aches and pains are gone (unless I workout extra hard). My blood pressure is down. My average heart rate is down about 5bpm’s. No foggy brain. No restless legs. No gas problems. No digestive issues. No acid reflux.

All of the problems that motivated this lifestyle change have either improved or gone away. I’ve decided that I will most likely continue this beyond 2020.

Here is a pic from December right before I began.


This is me today at age 51.

    1. Thanks so much!

      1. Hotness! You look fantastic!!

  2. You are completely killing my internal narrative that I’m too old to fully switch…thanks, jerk! 🙂

  3. Just fantastic Mike. I wish I could find a doctor in Adelaide South Australia who is a carnivore. Mine just says nothing at all so I figure he thinks I’m mad. It’s so not popular to eat this way down here despite 60% of our people being fat and, or, sick. At least, like you, I’m not sick anymore.

  4. You mentioned restless leg. Did you mean Restless Leg Syndrome? Because i am taking serious medication for it every night? I am doing keto. i will try Carnivore to see what happens to my RLS.
    Thank you for sharing your story.
