Interview with Liv

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name: Liv Irene Halvorsen

From Lillehammer – Norway

I am a meat lover and a Carnivore in my heart. I thrive on this way of eating, and I am not thinking of Carnivore as a diet, but a way of living for the rest of my life.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Ancestral

I have tried all different diets there is in the past and I was never able to lose excess weight on these different ways of eating.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I was learning about mineral balancing from Morley Robbins and have studied with him for 3 years. I have also studied nutrition alongside my other studies.

I have healed myself with what I have learned from him and the Carnivore diet from

Hypothyroidism

Insulin resistance

Estrogen dominance

Periodontitis

High blood Pressure

Brain Fog

Adrenal Fatigue

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I am only eating when I am hungry and fasting 30-50 hours every 10th – 20th days.

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

Lost a lot of weight

Estrogen dominance gone

Insulin resistance almost healed and many other things.

I feel happy and I am very in tune with myself and my surroundings. I also feel very strong in my mind and soul.

I also want to add that I am not nearly done yet.. I am lifting weights every day these days, so I am aiming to gain a lot of muscles in the months ahead. I used to be a athlete before I got sick with hypothyroidism.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories – with Sarah

Interview with Sarah

IMG_5624

1) Introduce Yourself.

I am an almost 40 (in June) year old yoga teacher and mom to a severely autistic little girl living in Atlanta. I practice yoga and meditation daily to manage my chronic stress, but parenting a special needs child can be unrelenting on your adrenals and overall wellness.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

When I began teaching yoga seven years ago I followed a strict vegan diet.  I felt pretty good initially as a vegan, but I began to notice that I was always injured, exhausted and got chronic sinus infections and colds.  After 2 years of a strict vegan diet I added in chicken & eggs and immediately felt better. Over the last 5 years I have experimented (mostly unsuccessfully!)  with everything from the bone broth diet to vegan cleanses to manage my weight and hormonal issues.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

During the holidays of 2018 I got an ultrasound due to pain, and we discovered ovarian cysts.  My blood work was also sub-optimal with low testosterone and progesterone, and a saliva test confirmed that I had low cortisol (major adrenal fatigue!).  My stress level was at an all time high, and I had some very stubborn weight that I was carrying due to stress.

A good friend of mine is also a doctor, and she had been following the Carnivore diet for 5 months and recommended it to me!

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat lots of grass-fed red meat, eggs & very small amounts of chicken.

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

My bloodwork has improved to reflect normal levels of testosterone, progesterone and my insulin resistance (PCOS) is no longer!  An ultrasound confirmed that my ovarian cysts are gone, my cortisol has also returned to normal levels – and I have lost weight. My deep sleep (the stage of sleep where the body performs deep healing and restoration) has also increased from less than an hour per night – to as much as 2.5 hours per night!

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

Honestly – I love the simplicity of the carnivore diet, and the only negative is that when I eat out – I have to order 2 meals to get enough meat!

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

Due to my severe adrenal fatigue, I have not done any exercise other than walking and yoga. Now that my levels are all in a good place, I am easing back into the gym and using an Oura ring to track my HRV.

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

Don’t wait any longer to get your health back!  I have struggled with my health for years, and I am so grateful every day to wake up and feel good!

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

I think this will take a long time, and many doctors who are doing the diet themselves (such as Shawn Baker & Paul Berry) will continue to be vocal and advocate for the movement in the public eye.

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

Stress management and getting your cortisol under control will greatly improve your ability to follow this diet! I am on Instagram as @Carnivore.Yogi
