Rachel’s story is a compelling example of the benefits of following a carnivore diet. As a mother of two, she tried the carnivore diet to participate in a cutting challenge. Since then, she has transitioned to a near 100% carnivore diet. This review will analyze her story and the benefits of following a carnivore diet.
Summary of Rachel’s Story
Rachel transitioned to a carnivore diet after following a keto-based diet. Initially, she ate lean meats, but she found it challenging to stick to the diet. She eventually shifted to eating fattier meats, and she eats intuitively without tracking. She also enjoys coffee with MCT or HWC in the morning. Since following the carnivore diet, Rachel has experienced numerous benefits, including mental clarity, boundless energy, better digestion, improved moods, less soreness, better gym performance, better body composition, and stronger hair and nails. Rachel’s bodybuilding style training, HIIT, yoga, and rowing have all seen improvements since she began the diet.
Benefit 1: Improved Digestion
One benefit of the carnivore diet that Rachel experienced is improved digestion. This benefit is due to the diet’s high protein intake, which promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. Additionally, the absence of fiber in the diet can help those with gut issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulitis, and Crohn’s disease. By eliminating carbohydrates, the carnivore diet may also reduce inflammation in the gut, which can further improve digestion.
Benefit 2: Enhanced Fitness Performance
Another benefit Rachel experienced from the carnivore diet is enhanced fitness performance. The high protein intake of the diet promotes muscle growth and repair, which can lead to increased strength and endurance. The absence of carbohydrates in the diet can also reduce inflammation in the body, which can improve recovery time and decrease soreness after exercise.
Rachel’s success story with the carnivore diet highlights the numerous benefits of following this diet. The high protein intake and absence of carbohydrates in the diet can promote muscle growth and repair, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and enhance fitness performance. While this diet may not be suitable for everyone, it is worth considering, particularly for those with gut issues, autoimmune diseases, or inflammation. However, it is essential to consult a doctor before starting any diet. Rachel’s journey demonstrates that the carnivore diet can be an effective approach to achieving one’s health and fitness goals.

Original Post: Interview with Rachel
1) Introduce Yourself.
Rachel. Mom of two kids (9 and 11). Fitness fan. Love for life. I geek out on science and nutrition. I never stop reading and learning and expanding.
2) How did you eat before Carnivore.
I ate almost vegetarian/vegan at some points in my life. No beef or pork for over 5 years until going keto. 5 months into keto I craved red meat and bacon. It’s now been 1.5years since starting keto and I am almost 100% carnivore. Quite a big shift from salads and veggies at every meal.
3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.
I was in a Carnivore cutting challenge. I had always been intrigued by it and this was a good chance to use a program to eat meat and get shredded.
4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.
When I first started Carnivore I was cutting. I ate lean meat and lowered my fat significantly from my keto beginnings. I found it difficult to stick to and eventually went to fattier cuts of meat and a bit of added fat again (in coffee and butter or bacon fat on meat). I no longer track anything and eat very intuitively. I often fast, doing 16-8 and have a coffee with MCT or HWC in the morning. Yes, my Carnivore Diet includes coffee and MCT powder. But otherwise there is no “cheating” and no cravings to eat anything other than animal products.
5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.
Mental clarity, boundless energy, need less sleep, better digestion, even moods, less soreness, better gym performance, better body composition, stronger hair and nails.
6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.
None. Mostly just trying to make things work with my family so that everyone feels included and understands why I am making this dietary choice.
7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.
I have always worked out. I love bodybuilding style training, HIIT, yoga, rowing machines… Since going Carnivore my strength is improving, my endurance on the rower is improving, and my recovery is great.
8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.
If you are curious I think trying keto first is a good step to get in the meat and fat eating game. Eventually cut out treats, sweeteners, and plants. If you are into going full force into the diet, then plan ahead in the beginning. Have a freezer, fridge full of a variety of meats, always have eggs and bacon in the fridge, eat pork rinds when you feel snacky, and don’t be concerned with macros – just eat fatty meat, and eat it until you are full.
9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.
I do. Maybe it won’t be a huge percent of the population but I think it is slowly gaining momentum. Keto is growing also and I think Carnivoe is so close to the keto diet that some of us naturally went to this particular version of it. It’s always going to be different for each individual so it’s a little bit harder to market to the masses.
