Except for fish oil capsules, I'm going vegetarian until the end of the year. 15+ years on low carb didn't work for me. Actually, I think it made me worse off. I lost 50 lbs the first few months and then stayed stuck there for the next 15 years. I experienced terrible cravings and couldn't lose more weight no matter how I tweaked my diet. 2 winters ago, I started experiencing blood pressure spikes that would start in late afternoon and BP would continue going up intil late evening. BP would peak around 220/125 with a heart rate of 135 (usually in 60's or 70's). After 2 plus years, I figured out that these spikes were being caused by saturated fat. By cutting way back on saturated fat the spikes were mostly under control. I still had them, but the peak and duration were much less than before. So my diet evolved to less red meat and more starchy vegetables. That resulted in considerable weight loss and health improvements. So last week, I thought why not try going all plant based for 2 months and see what happens. From what I have researched, the main problems with a vegetarian diet are B12, vitamin K2, and zinc, so I take supplements for these 3. After about 5 days on diet, I have seen a significant drop in BP and my energy level seems a little bit higher. The main problem appears to be detox, as I have trouble sleeping and get a headache over night. I'm also feeling arthritis in my hips, but I expect that to improve. I'm fine during the day, but my hips hurt when trying to sleep. I added a couple of supplements to try to help with detox. I'll post an update at end of November and another around Jan 1.
