Diet changes: This sounds like the very popular Adkins diet. If you maintain this diet and seriously curb carbohydrates, you will likely see a notable weight loss. From a blood testing perspective, I would anticipate an elevation in your total cholesterol and LDL levels which can elevate your cardiac risk long term.
