I love doing the Carnivore Diet Success Stories, I find it very rewarding to share peoples progress. So I am going to try to catch up with people once a year to see how they are getting on.
Will they all still be Carnivore, probably not. However, I believe they will have an appreciation of the benefits of a meat-heavy diet and will use that knowledge as a tool to further their health.
Meat Up with Nicole
1) How would you currently describe your current way of eating?
Still strict carnivore with the exception of a pint of Revel ice cream before my period.
2) What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year?
Wow.. so much! So much out there we DON’T need. Meat really does have it all. I feel best on grass-fed. Dairy makes me bloated AF, and I went back to monk fruit in my coffee after 3 months of no sweeteners bcuz it’s yummy.
3) What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year?
I am still holding steady in body comp and lab tests, status quo.
4) What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead?
I’d like to get even leaner and manage my perimenopause symptoms.
5) Anything else to add? and where can people follow your journey?

Here is the original post from 3rd October 2018
1) Introduce Yourself.
I’m a consultant to a large health care company in California and have been a health coach for 15 years. BA psych MEd Health Promotion. Mom of 2, live in Laguna Beach.
2) How did you eat before Carnivore.
Keto 1 year, plant-based prior, former vegan of 15 years.
3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.
To heal colitis and get leaner.
4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.
I try to be flexible but also listen to my body when it comes to food choices. I eat almost exclusively beef with occasional eggs and bacon days. No dairy. Coffee but trying to quit! IF daily, periodic extended fasts for healing.
5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.
Better sleep, mood, leaner, much better digestion, reduced inflammation and colitis symptoms are nearly gone.
6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.
Going out is a bit more limited, socially unaccepted as of yet. People think it’s bad for the environment and don’t understand its health or environmental impact at all.
7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.
Pilates, barre, kettlebells, walking, and surfing. Something every day.
8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.
Transition slowly, don’t rush this or you will have a ton of fatigue and diarrhea. Let go of old ideas with regard to hunger. We tend to get used to a very full feeling eating plants, so a lot of people overeat and gain weight in the beginning until they get used to a less bloated belly still feeling full and satiated.
9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.
Yes! Too many good benefits to ignore.
10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow your journey.
I think the inclusion of various forms of fasting along with a carnivore diet can cure almost anything.
