Carnivore Diet success stories – with Hadi

Interview with Hadi

1) Introduce Yourself.

I’m Hadi Doumit. I lost 191 pounds in one year, overall 235 pounds down following the carnivore diet.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

A lot of fast food. It was so convenient.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I had a huge health scare. I was 405 pounds, Borderline diabetic, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and liver was failing.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I came across a documentary called bigger stronger faster that was on Netflix. That’s when I first learned about Chris and Mark Bell. After watching the documentary I looked Chris and Mark Bell up on YouTube and Instagram and I noticed these guys mostly ate red meat and threw away the bread. They were doing a campaign called war on carbs that caught my attention. At the time I’ve tried everything, so I switched all my meals to red meat and water basically and the weight started flying off and my health started to get back on track as well.

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

Gaining my healthy back.

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

None so far.

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

Yes, I do exercise. I powerlift at SuperTraining Gym with Mark and Chris Bell. I have my first powerlifting competition on March 15 coming up.

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet. 

Try it for 5 days and it will change your life.

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

No, people are too afraid to try new things. They always revert to, isn’t eating red meat bad for you? 

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

If you want to change your life and get your health back on track, stick to red meat. I lost 235 pounds. Take a look at my journey. @The_Carnivore_Chef

Meat Up Year One

Meat Up: 1 year later with Alex

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.

Interview with Alex

1) How would you currently describe your current way of eating. 

I would say its more of a vertical diet but still with a majority of my kcal from animals. Mostly rice and different meats.

2) What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.

Within the last year my focus has been training rather than studying nutrition. But I always learn some nutrition here and there, for example I’ve learned the Vertical Diet’s ins and outs.

3) What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year. 

Since about 10 months ago my funds got smaller and I had to stop eating carnivore, I held on but I lost mass because I ate way to little. Since then my eyesight has become somewhat worse, my pain is worse, my anger easily takes over when I don’t have cannabis (have a prescription). But my body actually feels way better, I don’t wake up with both my shoulders subluxated which is awesome. I also have a way better self image, and I love what I see in the mirror when I’m not in anger.  But my mass gain has also made me snore at night.

4) What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead. 

I plan to compete at a local bodybuilding show at the end of the year or beginning of next, so my goal is to place top 3 in that competition.

5) Anything else to add? and where can people follow your journey?

Nothing more to add, if you want to follow me my closed account is zerocarbalex. But if you cant handle some negativity ka.lundmark is the account to follow. That page is 99.9% free from my anger and personal problems.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success story – with Michael

Interview with Michael

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi, I’m Michael Scher, and I’m a carnivore. I’m also a guy who’s interested in longevity, human optimization, philosophy and the general state of humanity and how we interact with each other and with our planet.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I have always eaten “healthy” as a result of my upbringing, having been transplanted as an adolescent from New York City to rural Canada, where we raised our own food in a fairly ancestral manner. I started transitioning away from gluten, then grains and sugars about 12 years ago, and have been keto/LCHF for about 10 years.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I tried carnivore because I had plateaued with keto/LCHF, and felt that I still had gains to be made. When I first heard about carnivore, I thought it was the craziest thing I had ever heard! But I did the research, and with a BSc in biochemistry, I felt I had the tools to evaluate the data I was absorbing. I became convinced that a well-constructed nose-to-tail carnivore diet could be nutritionally complete, so I tried it for a 30-day period. That was nearly a year ago, and I haven’t looked back since.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I am also a trained chef, so I try to make my plates as interesting as I can, without sacrificing either taste or good nutrition. I source my food from a variety of providers, emphasizing good and humane rearing practices such as grass-fed and -finished ruminants and dairy, pastured eggs and wild caught seafood. I eat nose-to-tail every day, trying to balance meat and offal, including whole organisms such as eggs or sardines, and limiting my dairy. I eat foods which I consider to be “vitamin-rich” raw, such as liver, egg yolks and bone marrow, to avoid denaturing the nutrients. I avoid snacking between meals and processed foods, especially dessert replacements. I eat within a six-hour window, having my first meal at around 1pm and eating until fully satiated. If I am hungry in 4-5 hours, I will eat again, usually a smaller meal. If not, I will stop eating until the next day.

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

I have seen a leaning out of my physique, better and easier digestion, improvements to my hair, gums, skin and nails, quicker recovery from athletic activity and better sleep.

IMG_0544

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

I occasionally have sporadic and short-lived digestive issues, which I attribute to eating certain foods raw (liver, yolks and marrow). I still crave sweets from time to time. I find that too much dairy, especially processed, unfermented dairy, can cause me to feel bloated. And I am so tired of explaining my WOE to skeptics who, despite their own obvious bad health, feel justified in warning me of the imminent perils of being a carnivore.

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

I do exercise, nearly every day. I am an avid competitive cyclist, and ride about 7,000 miles (10,000km) per year. I also workout in the gym, doing short, bodyweight sets to failure (à la Ted Naiman) 4-5 times per week.. I find that carnivore, like any LCHF diet, allows me to ride for hours on end in a fasted state, using only my stored body fat as fuel. I’m not sure if lifting would be better with the inclusion of carbs in my diet, because I only started lifting in the last 5 years. I occasionally experiment with resistant starches such as UCAN with my athletics, but I can’t really speak definitively to the results yet.

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.

I would say, “Give it a try, what have you got to lose?!” You’ll know with 30-days how it’s working for you. I would also advise eating at home for the first 30-days, because there are so many hidden sources of unhealthy foods in restaurant foods, such as hidden sugars and industrial seed oils, which I think are the two worst foods for human health (especially the latter!).

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

As a diet? No, I don’t thinks so. As a directional indicator towards improved health, I certainly hope so. And I think we are seeing that happen already, but so are we seeing the rise in popularity of veganism…

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

I think it is critical that we all take individual responsibility for the way we feel every morning when we wake up. We have become overly reliant on the medical system to fix the woes we are bringing upon ourselves. Eat well, as your great-grandparents might have. Sleep deeply. Turn off the television and hug your children. Embrace the world around you. And do the work – any life that feels too easy probably is, and by the time you realize the price you have to pay for that ease, it will be too late to renegotiate! 

You can find me mostly on Instagram @michaelscher but stay tuned, I have some new ventures coming in this space that I am proud to bring to the world.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Nathan

Interview with Nathan

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Nathan Marks. I work as a registered nurse in the ED and have been a fitness/health enthusiast for many years now!

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Up until three years ago, I ate the standard American diet. This included no limitation to carbs, no macro tracking, and zero self control. I was truly struggling with my health at this time. To put this simply—I was dealing with severe neurological problems that no doctor could understand. It was debilitating to the point that I had to put school on pause. After having been to the Mayo Clinic and receiving zero answers to all of my problems, I decided to visit The Center for Functional Medicine at Cleveland Clinic. After discovering that mold illness was the cause of all of my neurological problems, my doctor placed me on the ketogenic diet. With time, this diet nearly completely eradicated my mold illness. I transitioned to the carnivore diet in March of 2019 in order to reap further benefits of the ketogenic lifestyle.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

My health greatly improved after transitioning from the standard American diet to keto; however, I still craved more improvement. I was still dealing with bloating, excess weight, energy fluctuations, and acne. In addition, I was caught in the dogma of protein restriction in order to preserve ketone production… this affected my weight lifting performance at the time, little did I realize. After hearing Dr. Saladino speak on Ben Greenfield’s podcast about the benefits of removing plants from the diet, I decided to give this all a try! 

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I try to make this way of eating as simple as possible. I primarily eat red meat, and I do not have a set time frame for eating as of now. I also do not eat organ meat. In general, I am eating two meals per day. On average, I fast for 24 hours two times per week. I simply listen to my body in knowing how much to eat and when to eat!

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

The benefits of this way of eating have been incredible, to say the least. To keep this simple, I will list the benefits of transitioning from traditional keto to the carnivore diet:

  1. Consistent energy throughout day
  2. Much leaner body mass
  3. Perfect digestion (zero bloating)
  4. Better sleep
  5. Huge improvement to weight lifting performance
  6. Clear skin
  7. Mental clarity

IMG_8283

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

None. Just know the first few weeks of starting this WOE you may have diarrhoea. 

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

I exercise five days per week. I primarily focus on weight lifting. My strength has only increased with this WOE.

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.

Make this diet as simple as it should be! Learn to listen to your body! If you are coming from a non-ketogenic diet, just be prepared for the first week or so being slightly difficult. The initial adaptation from carbohydrates to fat can be difficult. Know that all of this is worth it, though!

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

I think the carnivore diet will be what the traditional keto diet is now in a few more years. Benefits of ketogenic living only continue to increase when the switch is made to carnivore! 

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

I’m @thecarnivorenurse on Instagram, and this is the primary platform I use. I hope my testimony can help someone else out there!

Meat Up Year One

Meat Up: 1 year later – with Martina

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 Martina

1) How would you currently describe your current way of eating. 

80-90% carnivore and the rest is just whatever I feel like. I guess you can call it meat-heavy keto. 

2) What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.

Quality is super important. I used to focus on high-fat foods for my ketones but now I just focus on organ meats and high-quality animal food and I eat more lard and tallow than before. I’ve gotten rid of all vegetable oils so, no coconut oil or MCT for me. I tracked my blood sugar with a CGM device and have confirmed that glucose is ok for me but pizza, bread and pasta is not, so if I eat something else than my regular carnivore diet it’s just plain sugars or a dark beer (stout).  

3) What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year. 

I just do my regular training (powerlifting) and try to gain strength. I also train some flexibility and hand balancing. 

4) What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead.

Gaining more muscles and more strength. 

5) Anything else to add? and where can people follow your journey?

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Dwayne

Interview with Dwayne

1) Introduce Yourself.

My Name is Dwayne Schofield, I live in Nova Scotia Canada. Growing up I was very active in the snowboard community, competing and coaching at the provincial and national levels.  After leaving the sport and getting into the real world of working I was up and down with my fitness and weight.  In Jan 2019 I hit my highest wait and had a number of health issues going on, I was turning 41 but by body was feeling much much older.  It was then I knew things had to change.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore

I had tried a number of different things, I had tried vegetarian, did not enjoy it nor want to stay with it, I had success with the Keto diet but didn’t make it a lifestyle so would gain weight back.  I have been able to stay very consistent with this WOE because I enjoy it so much and dont feel im missing out on anything, I now only crave the foods I eat.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

When I hit my highest weight and was feeling my worst I was searching, I was consuming at least 3 podcasts a day and watching youtube videos, mostly around Keto and low carb but I kept seeing things on carnivore and it was really peaking my interest, so I said why not.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

Shortly after going carnivore, cravings for anything but meat went away, I eat 2 times a day, lunch around 1pm and dinner at 6, and both meals are usually beef and usually prime rib.  We do add in eggs, liver pate, sardines as well but at least 90% is beef.  A few months we did a cruise and on the cruise I added in some more foods, sweets mostly as it was a vacation.  I found once I added them back in it was hard to get them back out again.  Took probably a week to 10 days for those cravings to leave again so I try to stay strictly just meat as that’s why I feel the best and I find the WOE to be very easy for our lifestyle.

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

So many!  I had really bad eczema all my life, right from birth, and for the first time in my life I have no trace of eczema on my body.  I had chronic acid reflux, that is gone, I was on puffers regularly for my asthma, and I haven’t had to used them in a year now.  I had several kidney stones prior to going carnivore, some even had to be surgically removed and I have not had any since.  Mood is much improved, calmer and do not get agitated easily.  Much higher tolerance to the sun, I can be in the sun all day without getting a sunburn.  My eyes turned blue, that’s an interesting one!

IMG_5446

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

There can be social times that are difficult, food is a staple at a social gathering, and a lot of time that is food we just don’t want to eat.  I travel a lot for business and there are a lot of business dinner and im not always the one picking the restaurant, so it can be hard at times to get the amount of meat I require for a meal and meat that has not been cooked in any seed oils.

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

Yes, I have a home gym, I work out 5 days a week for 25-30 min, much of it is body weight exercises, but I have added a weighted vest lately

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.

Its so worth trying and much easier than people think it will be, for sure they will make tweaks over time but in the beginning just eat meat, lots of it, eat to satiation and fast when your not hunger.  Get lots of salt in 2-3 tsp a day in addition to what goes on your food is what we try to do.

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

No, I think the money behind the plant based agenda is too big, processed food industry too big and big ag is too big and they will keep pushing for their agenda but more and more people are seeing the undeniable results real people are getting with this WOE and a change is happening.

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

My wife and I have an instagram page where we share our story, tips, things we learn, products we like and use along our journey.  @ourinfinitehealth

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Catalina

Interview with Catalina

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Catalina Jaramillo. I was born in Colombia and moved to the U.S. in 2000. I am an artist and a momma!

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

For decades I followed the classic low-fat low-calorie diet. I was very familiar with restriction.  I became vegetarian and then Keto in 2016.

I got incredibly sick in 2019 and decided to reintroduce meat after decades of not eating it. By August/September I became fully carnivore.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I got very sick. I was not absorbing any protein despite the fact that I was intaking 100-150 grams a day. I was anemic, malnourished, bloated, my thyroid was low. I was a mess.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat my first meal once I am quite hungry and then eat either 1 or 2 meals more depending on hunger. I don’t track anymore!

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

Mental freedom and clarity. My cholesterol went down (despite the fact that I mostly eat beef and bacon). My thyroid improved, my skin is clear,  I don;’t have disordered thoughts around food, I don’t restrict and don’t track. I also lost 15% of my weight effortlessly.

image2

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

none

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

I exercise frequently and skip it when I don’t feel like it. Even this aspect has changed on this diet. I don’t feel the need to overexercise anymore.

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.

Give yourself a chance. Eat when hungry and until full. Pray to realize the nuances and be patient

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

Little by little! the more we debunk myths around it, the better

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

I’m @thecatalina. I also coordinated the #hypercarnivore2020 challenge and would love to have everyone visit. Much love!

Contemporary Carnivore Diet

The Meat-ing Carnivore Conference.

I love it when people get so passionate about a subject, they go out of their way to help others.

David is one such man. He is organising the Meat-ing conference in Malmoe, Europe.

You can use the code ketogenicendurance to get 10% off tickets here. There is nothing in this financially for me. Davids follows my social media and wanted to give you lot a treat, and I just want to help him spread the word.

If you check out the Meat-ing website, you will see he has gone all in!!! He hasn’t messed about, he has got some of the biggest meat eating names in the business to speak at his event.

This is what David is about:

IMG_8211

From an adrenaline junky, to a runner, to a health searcher!

As a person, I was always that crazy guy, from the early days in school I always had plenty of energy, which later in my teens led me to scuba diving and 10 years later to another form of diving, namely skydiving. Did that for some 11 years and the last 6 years I took along passengers for their first freefall as a tandem pilot. It was a joy to share the experience with regular people.

Started running back in 2009, and since I have always been that guy who wants to improve, I always searched for a better path. This led me to a different running stride with minimalist shoes, and a metabolic switch from a carbohydrate burner to a fat burner, so that I wasn’t to be dependent on carbohydrates for fuel. This was back in 2013.

So, it was my aim to improve as a runner that led me into diet research. In 2017 there was this guy (Shawn Baker) on twitter suggesting an only meat diet. The thing that then struck my mind, was my late grandfather who was born 1916 who always said, that if there aren’t any meat on the table, it was a poor meal with insufficient nutrients and the previous generations have always valued meat. This appealed to me and made so much common sense that I told my wife that I was giving it a try and the rest is history!

The carnivore diet did two things that my previous low carb lifestyle didn’t fix. The major thing was that I had developed some skin issues back in 2013-2014 I believe that it was. After several visits to my primary doc and also a skin specialist, they concluded that it probably was some kind of Rosacea, but I also had some small blisters on my cheeks. Ten days into my carnivore way of eating, the blisters on my cheeks disappeared and the red blush that had taunted me for some years was gone. After my 30-day challenge I tried to bring back the veggies, and instantly my issues came back. So, I decided to continue eating carnivore, and that made me go from eating three times a day to two times a day. The other issue was that the six pack wasn’t that visible, but hey, the carnivore diet solved that issue in no time.

So this is my short version how I came to become a carnivore.

I went to Boulder, Colorado last year to participate as an attendee to the first carnivore conference ever set up by Amber O’Hearn. I also attended the Denver Low Carb conference, but I felt the carnivore conference was much more at forefront with solving issues that regular medicine didn’t have a clue how to heal. Low carb handled many of these great, but carnivore had a much bigger and faster impact. While being there I recall that I got the idea to set up a similar conference here in Europe for the European audience.

When I got back home, I felt that the anti-meat agenda just rose exponentially, and everywhere the message was hitting regular people. I just felt that the time was ripe, and that the conference couldn’t wait. During the summer months I tried to get in contact with the speakers and made plans for the conference. Finally, most of the speakers that I reached out to (who also felt the same about the anti-meat agenda) agreed to come and give a talk.

Yes, the conference was intended for the like-minded people, but my bigger aim is to invite journalists, politicians, farmers and others to give them another view about meat and especially give farmers more tools and arguments to defend their livelihood.

I work as a civil servant in the Swedish Unemployment Agency as my day job. I started a company due to arranging the conference, and had to go to the bank to finance it. I do hope that I will go break even, but the most important thing is to get the word out about defending meat and have a packed auditorium! That’s the conference biggest task.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Cori

Interview with Cori

1) Introduce Yourself.

I’m Cori. A 49-year-old woman quickly approaching my 50th turn around the sun.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore?

I’ve been a whole food eater most of my life. Processed food has never appealed to me. Although I never referred to myself as a vegan or vegetarian, my diet was plant-based for most of my adult life.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

For the first few months I had no idea that my way of eating had a name. I have a laundry list of health issues—panhypopituitarism (with an autoimmune component, celiac disease (diagnosed over a decade ago) and Duhring’s disease, adenomyosis, and fibromyalgia. After exposure to gluten in the spring of 2018, I developed Duhring’s disease (celiac disease that presents on the skin. I was dead set on not going on antibiotics and steroids to treat my Duhring’s and other issues I had at the time. First, I cleaned out our entire pantry and fridge. Anything that could potentially cause cross-contamination went into the bin. Still, stomach and skin issues persisted. I began to notice blisters cropping up along with my Duhring’s (dermatitis herpetiformis) rash—skin flare-ups were happening long after my gluten exposure. Over the weeks I recorded my food and anything that made my skin worse or aggravated my stomach went. Eventually, all I was left with was tinned fish, eggs, and muscle meat. Eventually, I did see an improvement in my skin and I was beginning to feel better overall but I became concerned that my way of eating wasn’t sustainable, so I took to the internet (how did we survive before Google?) and came across Dr. Georgia Ede and Sally K. Norton, and several folks that referred to themselves as ”Carnivore” following their Twitter accounts. I reached out to Georgia directly and she assured me that I could indeed live a long and healthy life without plants and although I still can’t make rhyme or reason as to why I respond the way I do to so many plants, Sally helped me gain some understanding and gave me the additional confidence I needed to step away from plants.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat what makes me feel good. Long before Carnivore I was supporting my small, local farmers and producers; I continue to do so as a carnivore.  My approach is more nose-to-tail. I like the sustainability and I believe it’s what’s best for me. I do drink organic coffee (organic matters here, folks) and enjoy limited dairy— butter and cheese. Sometimes it bothers me, sometimes it doesn’t.

5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

Just about every symptom I have/had from my autoimmune diseases has disappeared or improved. I do fast as well to help with my low levels of GH due to my pituitary disorder, autoimmune issues, and familial cancers. I credit fasting with helping me just as much as carnivore. I work out pretty intensely and with the exception of a very slow healing hamstring that I tore a few weeks in to fasting and Carnivore and some foot problems I’ve suffered from for years from repeated fractures and injuries, I haven’t had any other tears or bone fractures/breaks. That in and of itself is a major coup for me! I feel (cautiously) invincible these days.

6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

Socially, it can be a bit awkward, but Carnivore isn’t a choice for me. Plants, (and the oils every kitchen seems to use), make me sick and I also have to worry about cross-contamination due to my celiac/Duhring’s disease so eating outside the house is an issue. I’ll only do it when I have no other choice, mostly on the road. It’s a risk for me, Carnivore or not.

7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.

I do exercise. It took me a good 5-6 months to fully adapt. I really thought I’d be working out at half-intensity from here on out, but then one day it just clicked and my body was able to perform just fine without carbohydrates. I love lifting and my focus is on building and maintaining muscle (a struggle with low GH). Currently, I do an upper/lower split 4 days a week. I spend 1.5-2 hours at the gym. Maybe too much to some, but I find it cathartic. I do very little cardio. Just enough to work my ticker and to keep up my endurance.

8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.

I reckon if someone is considering Carnivore they’ve tried everything and nothing else has worked, so I say to them, ”what have you got to lose?” But I do believe that if you’re going to do it, you need to go all in. You don’t want to dabble in high-fat eating AND carbs … It’s a recipe for disaster. If you can’t commit 100% this might not be a way of eating for you.

9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.

I hope so.

10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.

Although I’m happy to share my experience and what I do that works for me and my very specific set of problems, I’m cautious when it comes to doling out advice. Look to the medical professionals & researchers in the Carnivore space for answers and not schmos like me. They’re pretty generous with their knowledge and time. @cori__p on Instagram
