Ty's before and after photoshoot

Ty T.

Ty sent me his story on Facebook, and after reading it, I knew I had to share it with you all. I’m impressed by his dedication to the LCHF lifestyle, and how he works to inspire and motivate others. – Dr. Perlmutter

In September 2013, I decided to finally transition to a low-carb/high-fat lifestyle (and also 100% free of grain and sugar) and since then I have lost 82 pounds. I have been reading and researching ketogenic diets for about 10 years, and have had much success in the past, but this time something just clicked. I no longer “treat” myself to low-carb grains, or fake sugars. I feel fabulous! My skin conditions have completely cleared up. My mental fog is gone. Intestinal distress, muscle cramps, and headaches are a thing of the past.

An added bonus? I look the best I have in years! I started at 350 pounds, and weighed in this morning (January 8, 2014) at 268. I still have about 35 pounds to lose (I’m 6’6″), but I am close enough now to see and feel how much I’ve changed. I get compliments everywhere I go, and I feel like a celebrity! I also manage a large LCHF group of about 6,000 people, and spend my time helping others reach their goals and learn more about grain-free living.

For those of you interested, here are some answers to common questions I get about my lifestyle:

  • Carbs: No more than 20/day
  • Fat: No limit! I cook in butter and coconut oil, eating only when hungry.
  • Calories: Irrelevant (but I get 1500-2500 without restriction).
