I can only characterize my diet as high protein and high in animal fats, at least in relation to carbohydrates. Sugar is entirely gone from my diet. I’d estimate my total carbohydrate intake at less than 20% of my daily calories and at least ¾ of that in fiber. The tale of the tape: 198 pounds this morning. Even moderate quantities of beer tend to stall the process, but it seems that red wine does not. No blood work, yet. I intend on waiting until I have reached 185 pounds, or near that, before I check my numbers.
