As my third year of medical school was winding down, and I was just about to embark on a bold fourth year curriculum of back-to-back-to-back-to-back surgical sub-internships, I was on top of the world.  I was 27 years old, living in Palo Alto, California with my best friends, I had a wonderful girlfriend, I was working hard to prepare for my application to a surgical residency, and I still found time to work out like a wannabe Olympian. The MRI showed not only a large herniation of my L5-S1 disk (a bulging of the disk between my L5 and S1 vertebrae), but it also showed a free fragment of broken disk sitting directly on the S1 nerve root.  While the large bulging disk was likely the cause of my back pain, the free fragment pressing one of the largest nerves in my body was undoubtedly the culprit in my leg and foot pain. I woke up from surgery and immediately realized the pain was still there, in my left foot.  Worse yet, I had trouble moving my right foot, which was completely fine before surgery. That night I went back to the operating room and, this time, operating on the correct side, the surgeon removed a 4-centimeter fragment of disc from my spinal canal that was still compressing my S1 nerve root (below).
My dream of becoming a surgeon had quickly vanished along with any athletic aspirations I once had.  I worried whether I’d ever walk again and had begun to accept the fact that I may be addicted to pain killers for the rest of my life. Things I once took for granted – walking, being able to lean over the sink while brushing my teeth, sneezing without feeling like my kidneys were being ripped out – became distant and fading memories. Fortunately, with the help of some remarkable doctors (which included several more trips to the operating room), kinesiologists, and physical therapists, I would slowly learn to move again without pain.  I had to train as hard and deliberately for this as I had for every other athletic endeavor I’d ever poured myself into.
I also gained a profound understanding of pain and addiction, which became one of the most valuable lessons I carried with me through my brief medical career.  It allowed me to understand what a heroin-addicted person goes through, when viewed through the lens of my own experience with the strongest painkillers.
Years later, based on my experience and research I did while overcoming this injury, I gave many talks on the treatment and prevention of lower back injuries and have become a minor expert on the subject. The injured person does not take the necessary steps to strengthen and rehabilitate their back.
In many ways, transitioning to a low carbohydrate diet is similar.  Consider the figure below. If you find yourself feeling frustrated at how difficult it is to get from consciously eating well to unconsciously eating well, remember that you are on a journey.  If you are consistent and patient, if you remind yourself that you are embarking on a journey to change your life and not a short-term fix to look good in a bathing suit next month, you will embrace the right mindset to find the ‘sweet’ spot of unconsciously correct eating.
I will be the first to admit that this is not easy.  But, if you’re reading this, you’re already down the path and you’ll be better able to help the next person who struggles through the 4 stages of transition because you’ve experienced it yourself.
I’m a Physio that works with chronic pain conditions and there are several sentences in the blog above that do alarm me but thanks for the post. It’s amazing what we can learn when the pain is high enough and the need to overcome it is great. I am definitely flipping between the consciously correct and consciously incorrect at the moment and that is after 19 months of doing this.
This story though has added back some motivation to my life and was very interesting about your back problems.
Thanks for all your hard work, Peter, and thanks to everyone else for contributing to the discussion. Hang in there and remember that it’s less about day-to-day variation, and probably more about month-to-month, or year-to-year variation. This discussion of going from unconsciously incorrect to unconsciously correct is exactly my story.
I have found that the biggest challenge in eating low carb is staying award from certain foods during weak moments.


Wow, when I saw your question and the trailer posted on Facebook (without yet reading your post), I went to a completely different place: ie, that your point is that the problem of bad nutritional science is just part of the bigger problem in medicine. Hi Nina, Happy to, but I want to start with the caveat that what is working for me right now may not work for you, and it may not even work for me down the road.
Cutting CHO to below 50 g per day, irrespective of calorie intake, immediately eliminated all problems with sleep, and hot flashes, and getting rid of that stuff restored my emotional reserve.
Trying to add IF to ketosis did not work for me because the IF pulled me right out of ketosis. Specifically this product will help to alleviate pain in the lower back properly align the shoulders and the back area In addition those individuals using this product report that there is less of a burning sensation in their feet. Before you get too excited, I’m not about to tell you that a low carbohydrate diet is a remedy for back pain.  Instead, I am going to explain a remarkably parallel experience I’ve had. Except for the few people I have shared this story with (until now), no one would ever know what I went through.  I move through the world like someone with a perfectly healthy and strong lower back. It is a very deliberate lifestyle change.  Over time, as we form habits, we can go from consciously thinking through every necessary behavior change – something easy to do when we are in pain – to a place where the behavior is more automatic. I am thankfully back on to consciously correct as of today, but am finding that as I get closer to my goal, I am easing up on my militant anti-carb views, with regards to what I am putting in my own mouth and this means I flip back into eating the wrong things. It all comes down to will power and motivation and I find it interesting that I get to a point where I lose both as I get closer to my goal.
It’s not quite the same without the voice-over, but it will show you some good stretches and exercises.

I never made the connection until this week when a reader asked an unrelated question about lower back pain.

I must say, however, having seen you speak, one of the things that I noticed about you was your impeccable posture…I just always assumed you had a mother that made you balance textbooks on your head or something. As you say I would be putting in something I know is bad, whilst at the exact same time thinking why am I eating this. I have never really learnt how to use my back properly and always thought that if I could only strengthen my back more that it won’t be a problem.


Someone else noted here in this thread about how some folks say they read Taubes (or Wolf, Eades etc) and they drop a ton of weight like a walk in the park.

He has has success in treating pain, but only if the person was open to the belief that injury was not the cause of the pain.
Also what helped me reduce my pain was getting off of Ambien(side effect is pain), and pain medicines cause rebound pain. Those situations seem to cause me a low level of anxiety, and my brain starts sending me images of sweets frolicking carefree. Such damage could be affecting our pain perception, or the diet reduces the inflammation causing pain.
