World Carnivore Month 2021 – Acid Reflux – Day 8

Acid Reflux

What is acid reflux

It is where your stomach acid gets into the oesophagus. The acid does what acid does, which irritates the lining of the throat.

The oesophageal sphincter should only let things pass one way, from your mouth to your stomach. If something causes it to relax when it shouldn’t or it is weak for some reason, then acid can get into the oesophagus and cause problems.

What are the symptoms

The symptoms can range from mild to chronic.

You may notice heartburn, pains in the chest, problems swallowing, regurgitating food or bile, coughing, asthma, and sleep issues.

These things are obviously unpleasant, but when they become chronic then you have even more problems like increased chance of throat cancer, throat ulcers, and narrowing of the oesophageal.

How to treat acid reflux

Unlike a lot of diseases and issues, diet is recognised to be a trigger of acid reflux where alcohol, fatty, and fried foods are claimed to be the triggers. Whilst I put the blame at other types of foods, at least the medical paternity admit food is an issue, which is rare.

Unfortunately the main focus surprise surprise is giving you drugs! Rather than wondering what is causing the reflux, they mainly just give you some drug to reduce your acid production, over time you will just be given stronger and stronger antacids to keep the acid at bay. Eventually surgery might be needed. This is the standard pattern of modern medicine.

Give you drugs to beat down the symptom’s, rather than tacking what is causing the symptom’s.

So because the person is just given drugs, they will rarely make the attempt to change their lifestyle and nutrition… so they are reliant on the drugs instead of dealing with the issue themselves.

Carnivore Diet success stories vs Acid Reflux

I got mild acid reflux in my 30’s, usually after a weekend out drinking with my mates and eating takeaways. I never had it again after going Keto and then Carnivore.

It is my belief that it is the standard western diet that is high in grains and vegetable seed oils, that is the problem. They lower your stomach acidity, this more alkaline state allow bacteria to grow, this produces gas and bubbling, and this bubbling helps the stomach acid to get past the sphincter. It may seem counterintuitive to some people but to prevent stomach acid problems you should eat more meat and less plant-based food, this strengthens the acidity of your stomach, the acids kills what it should, no bacteria, no excess gases, and no acid then gets into your throat. You actually need more and stronger stomach acid, not less if you want to heal.

Here are the stories I already have on acid reflux – https://ketogenicendurance.com/tag/acid-reflux/

If you have helped your acid reflux / gerd on a carnivore diet, then please let me know an we can do a carnivore success story on my blog.

Nancy “As soon as I switched to Carnivore the GERD symptoms disappeared. I still struggled with a bit of heartburn but that doesn’t touch the horrible symptoms of before, before Carnivore I was struggling to swallow food and even struggling to breathe. The biggest transformation and the one that has been completely life changing is I am now having completely normal bowel movements. No more running to the toilet in pain, no more toilet mapping when I go out, no more embarrassment. That’s worth it all on its own. But a big plus is the weight loss, I’m feeling and looking good and lots of people have complemented me.”

Dwayne ” 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!”

Lindsay “There have been lots of benefits even down to my skin and hair looking better but I am no longer on meds for reflux and had an endoscopy which showed no inflammation. My joint pain is pretty much non existent now and my energy is through the roof so much so I have taken up running !! Endometriosis pain is so low now I don’t take any pain meds. One of the biggest changes though has been in my mood, I feel like I get up everyday energised and looking forward to the day ahead.”

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Joel

Interview with Joel

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Joel Caron.  I’m a 37-year-old musician and graphic designer, living and working in Toronto, Canada.  I’ve been on an animal based diet for the past 2 years and 8 months.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore?

Growing up in a rural agricultural town, I mostly ate a standard American diet, including vegetables, fruit, nuts, tons of milk, sugary cereal and other processed foods containing grains and seed oil.  I ate very little meat, especially red, because of a cultural fear of red meat and animal fats.  In adulthood, I went through periods of restricting the consumption of specific foods to address my gastrointestinal problems and gut pain; more recently, I reduced my intake of bread, pasta and foods with added sugar, many years ago, I tried a mostly raw fruitarian diet for a few months (until I wasted away), and then a low FODMAP diet for a few years.  These approaches benefited me in some ways, but seemed to damage me in others; I could not resolve the digestive discomfort.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 27.  Unhappy with the inefficacy of the medication I was prescribed (and the bill), I became desperate to find a sustainable lifestyle that would stop the pain, discomfort, and urgent trips to the toilet.  After years of reading about health and nutritional “science”, and failing to see results in my own experience, I felt hopeless – so hopeless that I shifted my focus to other areas of unrelated interest, such as cosmology and modern physics.  For context, I was raised in a Catholic family and community, and as I learned more about the scientific method and developed skepticism, I applied it fairly to religious beliefs.  Eventually, I found the work of neuroscientist and philosopher, Sam Harris, I watched all of his talks and debates on YouTube, and eventually, I saw his appearance on Joe Rogan Experience.  This sparked recommendations for more JRE videos with other influential figures.  Then, one day, I just happened to watch the episode with Dr. Shawn Baker, who opened my mind to the carnivore diet.  Dr. Baker mentioned people using an “all meat” diet to effectively treat IBD and for other health benefits.  I ditched the plant foods that very day.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet?

When I started, I was eating beef, pork, eggs, butter, a little old cheddar, and the occasional seafood and chicken, always salting everything.  For the past year, my diet has consisted mostly of those same things, but with the addition of daily coffee, heavy cream, and a bit of honey (because I enjoy it and still feel pretty great).  I don’t count macronutrients or calories but I feel best on fatty cuts of meat to satiety, so I do that as much as possible.  When eating leaner meat, I add grassfed butter or any other animal fat source on hand.

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

Immediately, I experienced a significant reduction in gut pain and in frequency and urgency of bowel movements.  Interestingly though, it did take around two years for my stools to take shape and become firm on a regular basis; now, it’s rare to have loose stools.  Also, I went into the diet with bad heartburn which took a few months to resolve without medication.  On top of these major benefits, an animal based diet improved my skin, musculature, joints, circulation, eye sight, oral health, and overall cognitive function.

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

I can’t say there are any negatives in my experience.

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

I have been exercising as a carnivore, getting better results both in appearance and in strength.  I do full body workouts on most days of the week, involving various callisthenic exercises and light dumbbell work.

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

Follow other carnivores on Instagram and join carnivore Facebook groups, a variety of them, and take note.  You will quickly see how beneficial this diet is for treating a plethora of ailments and even for improving body composition.

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

I think it could become a mainstream diet if carnivores continue promoting and demonstrating its benefits.  This noise could spark greater scientific interest and lead to more clinical trials and concrete evidence.  And If we generate enough of this, I believe it will break into the mainstream.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Barb

Interview with Barb

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi, my name is Barb Shaw, and I’m 53 years old.  I started running trails when I was 7 years old, as my dad started running that year, and it was a great way to spend time with my workaholic father.  I ran my first marathon when I was 11, and needless to say, I won my age group!  I did run competitively through my freshman year of high school, and since then it has been more of a constant companion for me.  I spent a semester of college in Bratislava back in the early 1990’s, back when it was part of Czechoslovakia, and it was a difficult time for me.  During that semester, I realized how important my running was for my mental health, and it has been a part of my life ever since.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I was raised by parents who lived very low fat.  In fact, my father (a doctor) was of the mindset that he could eat just about anything, as long as it was low fat.  Our cupboards were filled with fat free cookies, etc.  He would eat a bowl of cereal with applesauce on top and use orange juice instead of milk!   My husband and I have tried lots of different ways of eating.  I hesitate to call them diets, as they become lifestyle for us, but I grew up eating tons of carbs.  In fact, part of the lure of running with my dad was the “carbo loading” rewards we got.  Loading up on donuts and pasta before a big run.  My teammates and I, in high school, would go to the grocery store at lunchtime and buy bananas and fat free (sugar loaded) yogurt, raisins, you name it!  We thought low-fat was the way to go.

My husband and I have always considered ourselves very health conscious, and focused on whole foods, canning and baking.  My husband used to make the most amazing sourdough bread with coarse stoneground whole grain flour, he would grind it at home with his own grinder!  He even built a brick pizza oven in our backyard and we had the most AMAZING pizza.  We even farmed for five years, raising our own vegetables, laying hens, pigs, broiler chickens, ducks and turkeys.  We would can or freeze our own veggies, make our own pizza and pasta sauce, etc.

I was always hungry for some sweet homemade something first thing in the morning; muffins, scones, pancakes, sourdough waffles, and we raised our kids on this food.   It was hard to understand why our middle son had developed Ankylosing Spondilitis at the age of 11 or why my husband couldn’t lose the weight that was building despite exercising everyday.  We were runners until he couldn’t run, due to spinal compression in his lower back, and then began swimming and doing hot yoga.

My husband was diagnosed with high blood pressure at the age of 35, and was at the point where he was taking 5 medications to control it.  We adopted a vegan lifestyle for a solid year, hoping this would help, but it didn’t.  Plus, I found it much harder to live a vegan lifestyle than Carnivore, especially when eating out.  There’s always a burger on the menu!

In the fall of 2017, friends introduced us to keto, and that was a game changer.  The first amazing thing was that my husband stopped snoring on the second night, and hasn’t started again since!  People would assume that this was due to weight loss from keto, but that hadn’t started yet, having only been two days.  It had to be inflammation reduction.  I wasn’t heavy, but had been putting on a few pounds as I approached my 50 year mark, and was getting a belly, so was happy to lose about 10 pounds quickly, I’m sure mostly water.  My husband began to drop weight rapidly and is now down about 60 pounds.  He was able to cut three of his BP meds in half and cut one out altogether over the next two years.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with

I decided to try Carnivore a few months ago, after reading an article on the Diet Doctor website.  I had been experiencing a rash on my abdomen that was getting more irritating, and anecdotal evidence pointed to possible relief for this with a Carnivore diet.  I ended up reading three books about it, and was still a little worried, but when I heard about Zack Bitters (you know, the carnivore who holds the 100 mile run record), my mind was made up that it would be worth a 30 day challenge.  The books I read were all written by physicians who had supported their positions with science and personal experience, so I felt it was safe and actually made a lot of sense.   I had been experiencing more and more bloating and reflux than I wanted.  It seemed everything would give me heartburn anymore.  I realize now that I was just substituting keto junk food for my previous junk, even though I made it all from scratch.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

When I mentioned to my husband that I was going to try Carnivore for 30 days, he said he would do it, as well, so we got the foods we like to eat out of the kitchen, at first storing them in the garage (we have since given most of it away), and began with meat, dairy and eggs.  I tried giving up my morning coffee, but soon realized that it was the one thing I really didn’t want to get rid of.  It seemed like enough change was happening right away, so I held onto that comfort.  I did get rid of sweetening it, so just milk and coffee.  We typically eat our first meal around lunchtime, maybe eggs with a little leftover meat.  We eat a large meal sometime between 3 & 5 pm, as we head to bed between 8 & 9.  This is typically just fatty meat.

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

My GI tract is doing so well, and my rash cleared up in a matter of weeks.  My energy is stable during the day, I sleep well at night, and I’m noticing muscles I didn’t realize I had showing their faces.  I’ve dropped about three pounds in a couple of months, which isn’t much, but I really wasn’t looking to lose weight.  I do like seeing my body composition change a bit.  I was on an estrogen/progesterone supplement, which I have stopped taking.  I just feel so good, it’s hard to put in words.  Plus, I feel so satisfied eating this way.  I really don’t crave any sweet food.  My husband will eat some Lily’s chocolate or some keto ice cream from time to time, but I find that I don’t even want it.  I’d much rather have a steak or a slice of cheese.  My husband has been able to get rid of another of his BP meds, so now is just taking the three half doses, so that’s progress.  He continues to drop more weight, gradually, and we are curious to see how his BP control evolves over time.

IMG_4744

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

The only negative for me, so far, has been fine tuning my electrolyte needs, as this took me a while to figure out when we went keto.  I think I had been sodium and magnesium deficient for most of my life, before beginning keto, so that was helpful realizing I needed to take more salt and magnesium.  I used to have circulation issues, developing Reynaud’s Syndrome in my fingers and toes.

I do get strange responses from people who realize how we eat now.  Like I did, they think it’s a bit crazy.  It’s hard to wrap your head around the idea that we don’t NEED to eat plants.  We have all been programmed to believe that they are essential for good health.  Plus, the belief that too much meat and saturated fat has got to be bad for us, right?!

Because we started eating Carnivore during the Coronavirus Quarantine period, we haven’t had to deal with social situations much, let alone being invited to someone’s house for dinner and dealing with our unique dietary choices.  And we aren’t eating out, at the moment.  I, actually, haven’t really wanted to eat out since starting Carnivore, as we can cook great meat at home for much less money.

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

We run a 5.5 mile trail loop Monday, Wednesday and Friday, followed by about 30 minutes of arm weight work, abs and stretching on the floor.  On Tuesday and Thursday we change it up with a cardiovascular workout in our garage.  We bought a used Elliptical Trainer and Recumbent Bike Trainer a few years ago and have them set up in our garage with a TV, so we watch something entertaining while working out different muscles.  These days in the garage are sort of recovery days, trying to keep ourselves in a Zone 2 training pace.  This also allows some balance work, as I can run on the elliptical backwards for part of the time, not holding on to the handles.  This has been really helpful.  Then we usually end the week with a longer trail run, about 7.5 miles, on Saturday and enjoy a real day of rest on Sundays.   If anything, we have found our energy and strength to be improved since switching to Carnivore.

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 encourage anyone who is thinking about Carnivore to give it a try.  How will you know if it helps or not, if you don’t give it a shot.  I would say get fat adapted, first, if you aren’t keto already.  I did have a more difficult time when we started keto with “keto flu”, my husband adapted much easier than I did.  Maria Emmerich’s website was super helpful for me, at the start.  It has been truly amazing to realize how different we all are, regarding dietary needs.  I do think I was someone lucky enough to handle a high carb load most of my life, and I wouldn’t have come to Keto on my own.  I’m so glad I got here.

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

I think it will get harder and harder for people to deny that this is an ok, and possibly much superior, way to eat as more and more people adopt the lifestyle and overcome physical and mental illness.  We have three sons, all in their 20’s, and they all think about eating this way, and have cut a lot of carbs out of their lives, but none have made the total switch due to the social difficulties of it.  I hope it can become more mainstream.  We would see a much healthier population, if it does.

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

My degree is in Public Health/Community Health Education, so have always tried to educate people, mostly by example.  It is hard to understand, when you are a person who has benefited from a way of life, why everyone doesn’t want to try it, but all I can do is be an example.  To this end, I have felt driven to create a personal blog website where I can share my experience and recipes with other women who may want to try and change the way they age.  I feel like I’m defying aging a bit, at this point.  In fact, my husband and I took a biological age test, this past January and at 52, my biological age was 44.  At 55, my husband’s biological age was 46, so we were really pleased to see that.  My website is PrimalMenopause.com and I’m on IG as @primalmenopause.

People will ask us how much more expensive this lifestyle is, and we are actually spending less right now on food.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Nancy

Interview with Nancy

1) Introduce Yourself. 

My name is Nancy, I’m 30 years old, and I am an amateur photographer. I live with my husband and three cats in the south of England. I was diagnosed with various chronic illnesses in my early 20’s and since then it’s been a long battle back to being healthy and functional. The dream is to reclaim my health and start travelling as much as possible.

 

2) How did you eat before Carnivore. 

Through my childhood and teens I ate very poorly, obviously I didn’t understand at that age the importance of nutrition when it comes to health. I was spoilt as a child in terms of food, what I asked for I got, and that was often chocolate, packets of crisps, you name it. I always had an appreciation for good food though, my father cooked meals from fresh and taught me how to cook. Cooking for my friends and family was something I was proud of and enjoyed doing. Nevertheless, there was still a lot of carbs and sugar in my diet up until my early 20s. When I was at my sickest, I decided to overhaul my lifestyle habits, I quit smoking at the age of 24 and from then on tried every diet you could think of. The Antihistamine Diet, Anti-Inflammatory Diet, Low Carb High Fat, Hormone Balancing Diet and many others.

 

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with. 

Despite years of trying these different diets and having some drastic improvements from being unable to walk without a walking stick and needing assistance with daily activities to almost functioning like a healthy person, I was still suffering from a lot of physical pain and exhaustion. Outside stress factors caused me to turn to food and alcohol for comfort, so even though the bulk of my meals were healthy, I was undoing all my hard work by comfort eating and drinking. No painkiller was helping the pain and I had convinced myself that the only way to bare the pain in my body was to drink it away, which helped at the time but was gradually increasing inflammation in my body. I was bloated and gaining weight.

 

At my biggest I was 10st 11lb, for someone the height of 5ft 3inches I was overweight. I had some health scares that knocked me to my senses. I cut out all the crap in my diet and stopped drinking. I was eating some variation of a Keto hormone balancing diet. I started losing weight and feeling better but the one thing that never improved was my bowel problems. From the age of 17 I had suffered from chronic diarrhoea, despite investigations the Doctors couldn’t figure out exactly what was wrong and I was hit with the umbrella term “Irritable Bowel Syndrome”. Despite what I believed to be a healthy diet of meat and plant foods. I still had severe diarrhoea and unnaturally coloured bowel movements. I also started to develop the most horrendous GERD symptoms, where stomach acid was aspirating into my lungs and burning my throat. I couldn’t bare it any longer and after seeing a family members improvements through the Carnivore Diet, I took the plunge.

 

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet. 

If I’m totally honest I’m not a 100% strict zero carber, I eat what I want and often that is cheese. I have cheese with a lot of my meats. My main food I like to eat is Steak, it’s delicious and simple and hits the spot. I also use Erythritol to sweeten my Teas and Coffees. A real treat for me is having some Cocoa Kefir which is delicious, but most of all my diet consists of Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Eggs, Cheese, and Bone Broth. I intend to get stricter; I’m even considering trying a 30 day Beef, Salt, and Water only cleanse.

 

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

As soon as I switched to Carnivore the GERD symptoms disappeared. I still struggled with a bit of heartburn but that doesn’t touch the horrible symptoms of before, before Carnivore I was struggling to swallow food and even struggling to breathe. The biggest transformation and the one that has been completely life changing is I am now having completely normal bowel movements. No more running to the toilet in pain, no more toilet mapping when I go out, no more embarrassment. That’s worth it all on its own. But a big plus is the weight loss, I’m feeling and looking good and lots of people have complemented me.

 

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

I would say it’s still early days so I couldn’t answer definitively yet but the main thing is I’m still fighting the sugar cravings. The relationship I had with food and comfort eating is a hard psychological tie to break and that is not something that is to blame on the Carnivore diet, but it is hard when you are around family who are eating sweets and you have to really utilise your willpower in situations like that.

 

I’m tracking my health during this way of eating and all my bloods have improved except for my Cholesterol, which is to be expected, but we know what a controversial subject that is.

 

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

I am currently not exercising as this is a slow process of reclaiming my health, but despite not exercising I have still lost 2 stone. As my health further improves I intend to start weight training and I’m looking forward to it.

 

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

You can’t know what the Carnivore diet will do for you until you try and if you are someone who is struggling with health issues I would definitely say give it a go for at least a month or two, see how you feel. Just eat what you want as long as it’s animal based and eat when you are hungry. Don’t throw yourself in the deep end with Beef only OMAD/Fasting levels of strictness. That is the sort of thing that could turn you away.

 

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

Being Vegan is really being pushed by the media and whilst it is admirable for its intention of lessening harm, not everyone can live and exist like that. I certainly know when I tried going Vegetarian I became really quite unwell.

 

There can be a lot of outrage when people find out that we eat this kind of diet, but I can tell you that my best friend is a Vegan so that’s proof that it’s possible for us to get along, we shouldn’t let these things divide us. If people can learn to accept each other’s life choices then maybe one day the Carnivore could be a mainstream diet, but no doubt there will be a lot of pushback about it. 

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

You can find me at @carnivoreandthriving on Instagram where I post what food I’m eating and tracking any changes in my health. Come say hi!

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.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Amber

Interview with Amber

1) Introduce Yourself.

Howdy! I’m Amber, aka Lone Star Keto Girl on social media. I’m 53, married and have 2 adult kids and a 10-month-old granddaughter.

I’ve battled with weight issues since I was 10 years old. Not to mention dealing with multiple eating/exercise disorders. I’ve tried pretty much every diet out there at some point, including a medically supervised one. I’ve lost 80 – 100lbs 4 times, 3 were via Weight Watchers with the same exact results – gaining all or most of it back, sometimes more.

At my heaviest, I was over 240 lbs and wore a size 24/26. That’s pretty major considering I’m only 5’2″. My health suffered horribly as well. I became hypertensive (210/110) & pre-diabetic. At one point, I was taking 4 medications for my high BP. I had major acid reflux and took Nexium every day for 8 years. My rosacea was severe and a great embarrassment. It was bad enough I was huge, but to have my face look awful as well was downright degrading. Digestive issues caused me great pain. Even worse than the physical pain was the emotional and psychological pain I endured. I was depressed and spent a good 20 years of my life hiding from the world. I became a spectator of my own life. Watching on the sidelines instead of living. Even after losing the weight those 3 times, I knew in the back of my mind there was no way I could sustain that way of living for the rest of my life, and it scared me when I’d finally reach maintenance level. It was miserable–always hungry and feeling deprived. It was just a matter of time until the weight came piling back on.

All that changed when I stumbled across keto. To say it was a life-changer is a huge understatement.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I was standard keto 2 years before going carnivore. I’ve transitioned through the low carb spectrum from low carb to keto and then on to carnivore. I readily admit I did the whole substituting the “bad” foods with keto-friendly ones. Yes, desserts, especially. I had a major sugar/carb addiction, but as I lost cravings and hunger, I found it easier and easier to eliminate the need for all the sweet. It became more of a treat instead of an almost daily occurrence. I also intermittent fasted. It came very naturally since I wasn’t even hungry. I did OMAD for a good year, only eating dinner.

Prior to keto, however, I bought into the whole low-fat-high-carb-meat-is-bad mantra that has been pushed by the government, doctors, nutritionists, parents, and friends. After all, that was the healthy way of eating. I had oatmeal every morning with a whole banana, 2 handfuls of berries, 2 pieces of low-fat whole-grain bread, margarine, and skim milk. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day after all! For lunch I’d generally have a peanut butter and honey sandwich on that low-fat whole-grain bread! Dinner you could be sure primarily consisted of chicken, a starch, and veggies. Of course, processed carbs and fast food was heavily mixed in there, too!

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

2 years into keto, I was off all but one BP medication, Nexium, and I was no longer pre-diabetic. My rosacea had cleared somewhat and my digestive issues were greatly improved. I met a friend who is a big advocate of carnivore and kept saying I should give it a try to see if I could heal the rest of the way. I figured why not give it a go and see what happens. Plus, then I’d be able to talk from experience and have personal knowledge of the whole low carb spectrum. I could help even more people.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I mostly eat beef and bacon as well as some bison, elk, venison, and wild hog. I don’t eat organ foods but I’m still trying to “acquire” a taste for it. I will use some spices (Real Salt seasoning & Paleo Pink). I’ve recently added back in eggs and a  little dairy after going egg/dairy-free (except butter on occasions) for over 7 months. I will have a little heavy cream here and there which brings me to coffee. Normally, I don’t drink it, but since it’s turned cold, I have it on occasion. I don’t go off plan except for a few select things when we’re on a cruise. Even then, I mostly stay keto or this year, carnivore. I will also have a few drinks when we go out dancing. Generally, water and vodka. I eat lunch and dinner and fast for the rest of the time. It’s not about restricting based on a clock.  It just happens to be when I’m hungry.

I am not dogmatic when it comes to the “right” way to do carnivore. I believe we all have to figure out what works for us and what we can maintain. After all, this is not a temporary diet. If you can’t stick with it, what’s the point?

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

I’m now off all medications and supplements! And my rosacea is almost gone. But the biggest change that actually surprised me was the huge digestive improvement. I thought what I felt on keto was normal since it was so much better than when I was on the SAD, but wow was I wrong. I have ZERO issues now. Zero bloat. Zero gas. Zero cramps. Zero pain. And zero constipation. Apparently, fiber was not my friend. I have no desire to ever eat fiber again.

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

It is a little harder to eat out which is something I really enjoy. It’s nice to have someone wait on me for a change. But you can usually find something. I’m just a bit picky.

I haven’t become bored with just eating animal foods or felt any deprivation. Nor do I care how others react to my lifestyle. No longer bothers me. I feel amazing.

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

I’m sad to say I have not. I do plan to get with it…at some point. I struggled with anorexia athletica, and it stresses me that I may revert to my crazy obsessive way of working out. 2-5 hrs a day/6 days a week in the gym as well as even more hours at home. Sometimes doing 10 miles a day on the treadmill on top of everything else.

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

Honestly, why not give it a try? It’s not going to hurt regardless of the silliness that’s out there claiming different. There is zero evidence eating meat is dangerous. Of course, there are always exceptions like being bit by the Lone Star tick. 😛

The biggest advice I have is that if you have not been keto/low carb, I highly suggest you start there and transition into carnivore instead of jumping straight in. I had zero issues transitioning from keto other than a little bit of fatigue and an increased appetite. Of course, if one is a rip-the-bandage-off kind of person, go for it. I’m not!

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

That’s a good question! I certainly hope so. There are a lot of us advocating for that very thing! The fact is that it would hurt the bottom line of those making a profit off our poor health. It won’t go down without a hard fight. But many of us are willing to do just that.

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

So many focus on the weight loss aspect. I get it. I did, too. However, since I’ve experienced true health, I now look at weight loss as a great side effect. Not the whole story. I know it’s easier said than done, but when you focus on health, great things happen!! Patience is key!!!

I’m all over social media!

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Lauren

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi. My name is Lauren. I’m a wife to an amazing husband for 12 years and we are pregnant with our 6th baby. I home-school our oldest two kids while the others watch or participate at will. Whichever they’d prefer. I started the carnivore diet on September 7, 2018, six weeks post-partum with our 5th baby. Also, I really like bacon.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I ate the typical standard American diet. I don’t love veggies and never really incorporated them into my diet. I ate a lot of bread, junk food, and meat.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

Both of my parents started eating the carnivore diet toward the end of my 5th pregnancy. When my mom came out to help after her birth, she really talked it up. I’ve always been interested in their style of eating (they came from paleo), but I really don’t like vegetables and that was always a problem. I needed to lose a lot of weight. I was unbelievably unhappy with myself in pictures. I also didn’t have any energy. That needed to seriously change. I have been pregnant or nursing for most of the last eight years and it’s really taken its toll on my body. I love my babies, but I needed to fix myself.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat a lot of meat, dairy (cheese and heavy whipping cream), and eggs. I do not do nose to tail. I have always been sensitive to texture and organ meats do not appeal to me. I also eat very little fish. I do use seasonings. I also don’t fast. It’s something I may incorporate in the future, but for the time being while I’m pregnant and nursing, I’ll eat when I’m hungry.

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

My biggest changes are really apparent during pregnancy. All of my previous pregnancies I’ve suffered pretty horrible heartburn. I had never had it before I got pregnant with our oldest in 2011. I thought I was dying. My husband passed the tums. Another symptom that I no longer have is morning sickness. For my previous 5 pregnancies, I spent every day either throwing up or being really nauseous. There wasn’t relief after 12 weeks. I was sick for all 9 months. I have had minimal amounts of nausea this pregnancy and nothing that has caused me to actually get sick. I also have a lot more energy. Don’t get me wrong. I’m still growing a human so I am more tired than I was, but I’m actually able to get off the couch and be a functioning parent. I’ve also lost weight. At my heaviest (pregnant), I was 255. When I started the carnivore diet I was 224. That was actually slightly less than I weighed right before getting pregnant with number 5, but I was really sick right before and after she was born and dropped the baby weight really quickly. In July I weighed in at 163.4lb. Then we found out the happy news! I have gained around 15lb so far this pregnancy. I’m hoping to keep that number under 30lb. I’ve always gained more than 30. My first I gained more than 50. This diet is a complete game-changer. I also no longer (hopefully), have kidney stones. I have had horrible kidney stones and multiple lithotripsies on both kidneys. Time will tell on that one as my last lithotripsy (June 2017) showed a ton of kidney stones growing on my kidney walls. I’m hoping they are no longer there.

IMG_0232

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

People look at me like I’m crazy. Ha. There really aren’t any.

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

I do not. I spent 8 years housing and feeding other children and wanted to give my body time to rest. I did some running this spring, but it wasn’t something that I was able to keep up with at the time. I’m hoping once I get situated after this baby is born and my body is healed to add exercise in. I enjoy Zumba and running, but I know I’ll need to be adding in a lot of bodyweight exercises as well.

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

Just do it. It seems harder than it is. That first month is the worst. Once you get beyond the cravings, there really is quite a lot of variety in what you can eat if you choose to. When you have a craving, shove meat into your mouth. Bacon works wonders.

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

Not a chance.

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

You can do anything if you set your mind to it. I’d love to hear from you on IG at carni_mama.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories – with Lindsay

Interview with Lindsay

145DC306-F5D9-438F-9E62-F52BB513C034

Introduce Yourself.

Hi, I’m Lindsay Wilson.  I am a 43 year old mum of 2 children and have been married to my husband Darren for 10 years.

About 3 years ago Darren had a health check which showed him to be pre diabetic and his cholesterol was high, the doctor wanted to put him on statins but he refused and came away with a diet sheet given to him by the nurse.

I was also struggling health wise with digestive issues.  I had been on omeprazole for 5 years due to silent reflux and chronic gastritis.

I also suffered with joint pain and had lower back problems.

When I was younger I ate mainly fruit and vegetables, there was never any full fat products in the house, everything I ate was low fat “health” foods.

Although I was always slim I had zero energy and low moods, I suffered with endometriosis and reoccurring ovarian cysts.

When Darren came home with his diet sheet I just knew this wouldn’t make him better so I decided to research it myself and I found Maria Emmerich , Dave Fieldman and a few others who convinced me Keto was something we should try.

Our diet before had not been good and I was totally of the mindset that fat was bad so it took a huge leap of faith.

We both started keto and within a few months Darren had lost over a stone in weight and his glucose numbers were all within normal range, I found my joints were easing and after the initial phase of reintroducing fat my reflux was much better.

The more we followed the diet the better we felt so we knew we were heading in the right direction.

How did you eat before Carnivore.

I had eaten keto for 3 years (with the odd blip) but before that my diet was very high in sugar.  I would eat bags and bags of jelly sweets and biscuits and loved cereals as a snack.

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

Carnivore seemed a natural progression to be honest.  I felt 80% better with keto but felt I wanted to eat more protein as I was becoming more active.

I happened to come across a few people on social media who had adopted a total meat approach and started to read up on some of the benefits they were experiencing.

I slowly began to introduce days of just meat in the week and made less effort to cook lots of sides at meal times.

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

The one thing I do love about this way of eating is the simplicity but I like to include a broad range of meats.

I eat beef, chicken, pork, lamb, venison, seafood, I make bone broth and eat pigs feet for collagen, I could not give up all dairy and so I include cheese and just recently I have started to drink raw milk.

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

There have been lots of benefits even down to my skin and hair looking better but I am no longer on meds for reflux and had an endoscopy which showed no inflammation.

My joint pain is pretty much non existent now and my energy is through the roof so much so I have taken up running !!

Endometriosis pain is so low now I don’t take any pain meds.

One of the biggest changes though has been in my mood, I feel like I get up everyday energised and looking forward to the day ahead.

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

I had to really think about any negatives but to be honest I think just the social side of it and trying to convince my doctor that all these wonderful changes in my health are down to my diet!

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

Up until recently I didn’t really do much exercise, I rode my horse now and then and would go to the gym for 1 session and give up however now I swim I run and I have just bought some weights to use at home! I feel stronger than I ever have and am actually enjoying being active.

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

Just go for it ! It could be life changing.

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

I hope so; I think the more benefits people see the more people will try.

Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow your journey.

You sometimes don’t realise how good you can feel when your so used to feeling bad, it has given me and my husband our lives back and our children their parents back.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Haley

Interview with Haley

image2 (1)

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Haley and I’m a 29-year-old stay at home mom. My pride and joy are my husband and my little girl. I’m currently in school for marketing management! I was overweight for nearly 24 years of my life until I decided to change my life forever. I love swimming (let’s be real, laying in the pool tanning), cooking, and road tripping with my fam.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I have tried literally everything under the sun. Atkins, weight watchers, Nutrisystem, IF, everything. I grew up eating a lot of meat but my main form of nutrition was processed sugary crap. I’m talking eat an entire Red Baron pizza in one sitting and wash it down with ice cream

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

My husband listened to the Joe Rogan and Shawn Baker podcast and we figured it would be worth a try since nothing else was sustainable and I was miserable in my current state.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I personally can’t seem to part ways with dairy so I eat beef, seafood, chicken, pork, and dairy. I eat when hungry and eat until I’m full. No limits. No calorie counting.

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

Being carnivore has cured a lot of the ailments that I thought were just genetic and I would suffer with forever. Such as acid reflux, digestive issues, high blood pressure, and diabetes. I no longer have intense joint pain, my anxiety and depression are near gone, and my hair is healthier than ever.

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

It’s not a social norm so I get a lot of funny looks or questions any time I eat out.

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

I personally don’t exercise outside of my normal, everyday activity. Haven’t found a need for it just yet.

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

Give it 30 days. Let your body adapt and get ready to live your best life.

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

I sure hope that it will. I feel like the carnivore community needs to be more vocal about the benefits of this lifestyle and hopefully, more people can jump on board.

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

I’m so grateful to have found Carnivore. It literally saved my life and I hope that anyone struggling gives it a try. My IG handle is: bonjourcarnivore
