I did strict keto for 18 months and only lost 15 pounds, it was 20 carbs or less each day. Protein plus lots of vegetables (plus wine). I then heard about the carnivore diet for autoimmune diseases, and I thought “why not try it for 30 days?”. The 30 days turned into almost 3 years, and I feel better than I have for the last 30 years. I lost 35 pounds in the first 4 months and 3 years later I am still feeling good. This zero-carb diet (including wine) includes about 2 pounds of beef, lamb, pork plus other animal food, with the exception of none of any type of poultry, plus about 1/2 stick of butter plus other fats a day. This is not a diet for everyone, but it has improved my health dramatically.
