I wanted to share my experiences with a low-carb, high-fat diet.
In January of 2014, at age 51, I weighed 185 pounds. At six-feet tall, I was not obese, but had a noticeable spare tire. at 6 feet tall but I had a noticeable spare tire. To make a change, I removed unhealthy foods from my diet, and replaced them with healthy fats like raw nuts and grass-fed beef, as well as increasing my vegetable consumption.
The first week I made these changes I lost 5 pounds. Major weight loss was never my intention, but I have lost an additional 25 pounds over the last year. Most startlingly, this is without any additional exercise (though I would probably be best served by changing that). There have even been gradual improvements to my memory and cognitive skills!
