In order to ensure that we learn the most from our experiences, we have to do our best to collect as much data as possible.

A lot of people are starting this diet because they hear and see other people having success with it. I want to take it to another level and learn why it works, if it's sustainable looking term, and who it does or doesn't work for.

We need to understand the science of this diet. We need data to do that. It starts with gathering statistical evidence to show a direct correlation between the diet and all the various benefits it provides.

Me at the beginning of May 2018

I"m 3 weeks into the Carnivore or Zero Carb diet. Here's what's happened so far.

I started at the beginning of May. My body composition vitals and blood work were as follows:

Weight: 197.9 lbsBody Fat %: 16.7Lean Muscle Mass: 93.9 lbs Resting Heart Rate: 53 BPMBlood Pressure: 110/64HDL Cholesterol: 60LDL Cholesterol: 95Total Cholesterol: 165Glucose: 85Sodium: 142 All pretty goods numbers but I feel like I can get better and I want to see if I can improve my performance in the gym.
I plan on doing blood work after 60 days. Right now I'm down 7.5 lbs, and 2.5% body fat. There has been some evaluation and tweaking of how I was going about things but I'll get into more of that in later posts.
I've been thru the Keto Flu, I got a little constipated for about a week…
