Re: why do we need all these special diets?
You don't need motivation--just cut out all grains and sugars (and that includes potatoes).
Experiment with omelettes, see if you can make a really tasty sausage omelette. Emphasize good fats in your diet and just let the sugars go.

Re: the slow slobby way to change your diet, maybe
You mention heavy cream--if you get raw organic heavy cream that's a very good source of fats, which the low carb diet is supposed to rely on.
So, don't give up the heavy cream in the coffee, but give up some form of carbs instead.
One of the problems with carbs and sugars is they feed the insulin cycle, and you're trying to substitute fats instead, which is the opposite of the food pyramid that has ruined so many people these past 50 years.

Re: why do we need all these special diets?
Cheese burgers are no problem, just use grass-fed beef, organic mayo, and leave off the bun.

Personally, I would rather die of a heart attack yesterday than spend an hour on a treadmill. You need to find something you enjoy doing, something you wish you had more time to do.
Lots of exercises/sports are more entertaining than a treadmill. You just have to find what suits you.
I do sabre fencing, and get to beat people on the head! Lots of fun!
