Default Pain Gone............

I haven't been really faithful to Low carbing for a number of years now. I had originally lost 40 pounds in 12 weeks following Paleo, and noticed my pain levels had gone down quite a bit. That was a number of years ago. Because I wasn't LCing my Pain had really been increasing and was affecting my sleep and then of course I was fatigued all day. I restarted with Paleo 2 weeks ago and I just wasn't making progress on losing weight or feeling that much better and I was having a lot of the Low Carb flu issues. My carbs even with just veggies were still too high.

I upped my Fat to 70 - 75% and keep my carbs extremely low. between 2-5gms. I have lost 4.5 lbs in a week eating this way. I have lost 7 pounds and 7.5 inches total in 2 weeks.BEST of all 30 years of being in Chronic Pain is GONE.This helps me move more and sleep so much better.

I feel really good, I am sleeping through the night.I am losing consistently now.

p.s. I posted a different version of this post in general Low Carb and then decided to post this revised version just in case it might help someone else with their pain.

Hmm...that's really interesting. I've heard several people stress the high fat portion of low carb and say people are eating too much protein and not enough fat when they do it. Looks like you're proving that out. Hope it continues for you.

So glad it is working for you!

It seems the common notion of a "balanced diet" does not actually exist, according to a discussion about extreme diets we are having on the Media Thread.

Perhaps one needs a perfect metabolism, or at least a growing one, to make diets of All Macronutrients, all the time, work.

Yes, a low carb diet does cure pain.

Improving your sleep absolutely facilitates weight loss.
