I have been on a diet similar to this since Jan. 2011.  My LDL-P has been excellent. 

Carbs do creep in during the day.  I have salad with Blue Cheese dressing.  I have coffee with cream.
I eat olives.  I drink approx. 12 oz wine/d often.  I eat munster cheese, swiss cheese.  I will have a bagel once or twice a week.  I use a lot of mayo in my tuna and cook my eggs with butter and put it on my steak sometimes.

I have stayed on this diet because I have not gained weight on it and I am not hungry. 

I have followed my advanced lipid profile, CAC and CIMT frequently and the results are excellent.

Since my return from my Southeast driving tour,  I have gone from 263 pounds back to 256 pounds.  That is the weight I started this diet on in Jan 2011.  On the car tour I was sedentary and I had more carbs than usual.  Mostly 3 pizzas.

Post Hawaii Trip weigh-in

After 35 days in Hawaii and back on Testosterone in gel form,  I weighed 255 pounds.

Again I stayed on a low carb, high fat diet.  On Oct. 27 I weighed 254. 

I started the low carb, high protein, high fat diet in Jan. 2011.  I weighed 256 pounds at that time. 

It is now 23 months later.  I haven't lost weight but I have not gained weight despite approximately 250 days on cruise ships.  I usually just eat three times a day.  I don't get hungry.  I actually exercise less than my routine before 2011.  I do try to walk at least 20-40 minutes a day. I usually drink alcohol every day- avg 4 oz a day.

I continue to take my usual medications.
Lipitor 10 mg
OTC niacin 1,000 mg
Fish oil 4,000 mg
ASA 81 mg
Metformin 2,000 mg
Actos 45 mg
ACE inhibitor
Victoza injection
