I'm down 56 pounds over the last four months after going carnivore (I had an ankle problem which kept me from exercising; even on a low-carb diet I gain weight slowly without exercise, so I decided to go to zero carbs). I was 352 just over a year ago; am at 254 now. We'll see what the future holds, whether I'll consume carbs again or not. I feel terrific, though there are at least another 30-some pounds to drop. My sleep has improved; my mood is far more positive; my rate of reading has more than doubled compared to the rest of the year (which is bonkers, considering that I had the summer off as a teacher and my carnivore diet coincided not only with my teaching duties, but with my time spent coaching football). I'm thrilled with the results so far.
I'm going to see my youngest bother for dinner tomorrow night before he gets deployed in two more weeks. We'll have a good time together.
Life's going pretty well, all things considered.
