219 days on Carnivore update


1st of all Happy New Year everyone. My wish for all of you is health, love and abundance in all good things. Thank you for the laughs, the advice, the conversation and the cautionary tales. You are a great group of people.

Day 219 on carnivore. I weighed 154lbs this morning on the eve of my 60th birthday. 

This makes it a 40lb weight loss since June 1st when I started carnivore. Last year on this day I weighed in the high 180's, was sad and sick of being sick. I was facing lung surgery in March and still adjusting to becoming an ostomate. Things were bleak.

I was still trying to find food that didnt hurt me and suffering from severe arthritis, inflamation, rashes, allergies and painful digestion. I never found relief until starting the carnivore elimination diet 2 years to the day after becoming a permanent ostomate.

I am well into my BMI range and feeling great. Im eating a ridiculously huge blade steak right now. Cooked low and slow and is probably 2.5 lbs? I will cover it with butter, salt, garlic powder and dig in as soon as I post this.

Its been a stressful holiday seaon and I for one am ready for a fresh new start in 2024.

If you are struggling with brain fog, menopause, weight, lack of energy, digetion, allergies, rashes, bleeding gums, gum disease, arthritis, inflamation or acne. There is hope.

All of these things improve immensely when you eat eggs, meat and fat. Cold fat not liquid or your output will be liquid. I eat the best of what is available to me and the best I can afford.

Im so happy with my progress but the ct scan and bloodwork in March will tell the real story. So wish me luck. 

I have a biopsy in 2 weeks on my pancreas so am staying healthy by staying home on New Years eve with my pregnant daughter, son in law and my dog Buddy. 

Best wishes everyone.
