"How the carnivore lifestyle transformed my health and well-being"

Back on February 1, I said I was going to start on a 100% carnivore trial to measure the effect on my overall metabolic and psychiatric health. I have been on mostly a Ketovore lifestyle since late 2020, and the results have been outstanding. I am off all prescribed medications, reduced or eliminated joint pain, clear-minded, and gone from a high of 257 lbs to a steady 204 this morning. In addition, I stopped drinking any alcohol. I carried out this regime until the end of Lent. The most dramatic change is in my mental health.

As many of you know, since February 5, 2020, I have been challenged by severe bouts of depression and suicidal ideation. The blow-by-blow is recounted in my book, Suicide, and the 90-Day Window. My posts here on FB are a rollercoaster ride with so many turns, dips, and dark tunnels that it leaves you dizzy and hoping for it to end.

Easter is the initial conclusion of this latest experiment, and I'm excited to report that I have had NO recurrence of depression, crying jags, or desire to retreat to my farm with only my dogs for company. For the first time in nearly four years, I am free of any desire to leave the planet selfishly before HIS time.

On April 9, 2024, I was interviewed by Dave Mack (No Carb Life), a YouTube influencer in the carnivore community. I talked for most of the interview—no surprise, LOL. Dave permitted me to relate my story about how I came to the carnivore lifestyle and its effect on me, my family, and my friends. Many of you have read my book and know my journey toward living happy, healthy, and fulfilled. That said, the interview contains new, revealing information. So, if you want to give it a listen, here is the link:
