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 Freda

Interview with Freda

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Freda Mooncotch

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Growing up we were probably on the traditional standard american diet in the 70’s but my mom did cook everything from scratch and was very “health” conscious. It wasn’t until high school that I started becoming more aware of what I was eating because I started breaking out with cystic acne and it was really bad. That is when I started connecting food with health issues and digestive issues. I was always tired but in my junior year of high school I got Mono and that made me really exhausted. Little by little I started eliminating things from my diet like pop, chips, and garbage foods in general and tried to eat more “healthy”. I know I wasn’t getting enough protein that is for sure. By the time I was 19 my acne had cleared up and I had a baby. Everything was great until after I stopped breast feeding when he was 15 months old. Then within a month my body went wackadoodle. I started breaking out with cystic acne again and gaining weight, was exhausted and just really felt off. I was looking for answers, anything. My parents had joined the Seventh Day Adventist Church and shortly after I joined them. We didn’t adopt the vegetarian diet right away. It took some convincing for that to happen but eventually it worked and along with being more “spiritual” because you eliminate meat, I thought it would help with my skin issues and help me manage my weight. The exact opposite happened and I thought, “maybe I’m doing it wrong. Maybe I need to go VEGAN.” And so I did. At first I went vegan then even tried raw vegan. We made everything from scratch and spent a horrible amount of time in the kitchen trying to make all this vegan food. I put on even more weight, was getting more depressed by the day. It was not a fun time in my life. I did that for about 3 years and then remember the day my Dad brought home a warm roasted chicken from Whole Foods and it smelled so good I just couldn’t resist and I once I took a bite of the thigh, I couldn’t stop and ate over half of the chicken. It was DELICIOUS! So, I started eating more chicken (with a side of huge guilt) and salads.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

From all the years of being weak, sick, struggling with acne and starving myself to stay thin, I became very very sick. I ended up on Spiranolactone for my adult acne that started again in my 30’s. I was on a very high dose for far too long and each year I was getting sicker and more dis-regulated. I never connected my mounting health issues to Spironolactone. I came off of it after 3 years and by the time I was 38 I was struggling really bad with my health and finally at 39 I completely crashed. At 38 I had started learning about Weston A. Price and had started incorporating more red meat, COD liver oil, organ meats and raw dairy into my diet but at that point, I think it was too late. Once I went down, I slept for almost a year. I had severe neurological problems, digestive problems, I was drooling, slurring, stumbling when I walked, tripping up the stairs and was losing my coordination and balance. My head was very dark. I was in the darkest place I’d ever been in my life. Paleo was very popular at the time so I thought I would try Paleo and I did that religiously for about 10 months, and while I felt a little better I had to take a lot of supplements and was exhausted. I then transitioned over to the Ketogenic Diet and I did experience some relief for about 2 to 3 months and then I started having some more health issues like losing gobs of hair and becoming super dizzy and other weird and random things. I was doing the HIGH FAT (consume copious amounts of fat), low protein and no carbs version. This was very popular at the time. I DO NOT recommend this. What ended up happening is that due to the low amount of protein I was consuming I ended up getting sepsis, leaky gut, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, a blood bacteria infection and a bunch of heart problems like fainting when walking up a flight of stairs. Waking up in the middle of the night feeling like I was having a heart attack and vomiting all over the floor. Vertigo and many other issues. I was kinda forced into Carnivore at that point because I couldn’t eat anything else but red meat. I would have to slow cook it in a crock-pot and that is all I could eat. Everything else, I mean everything including salt, bone broth, sauerkraut, kefir, diary, vegetables, fruit, anything made me blow up like a puffer fish. So I ate nothing but red meat for almost a year but something happened miraculously. I started eating red meat only in March 2014 and by June of 2014 I had dropped my body fat down to like 12% from like 25%. I lost weight, my energy started coming back and I became strong AF. The problem was there wasn’t enough research and I was afraid I wasn’t getting enough nutrition. The only person I knew of that was eating only meat was Steve Cooksey and he was able to reverse his diabetes. I followed and read Dr. Michael Eades book Protein Power and knew how important protein was but was still fuzzy about eating only red meat. Which is silly because I was looking amazing and feeling really good. Everything was starting to turn around.

I made the mistake of starting to introduce other foods back into my diet and started replacing some of the red meat with Paleo Protein Powder and Collagen Protein. You know, because everyone and their mother said that Collagen protein was equal to regular protein which is totally NOT the case. Chris Masterjohn explains that really well. You cannot and shouldn’t try to replace meat protein with collagen protein.  Little by little it didn’t take long before my body started weakening and going back to the disease like state I had been in previously. By January 2016 I was having severe neurological issues again where I felt as if I were being zapped by a tenz unit all the time, especially at night while asleep. My arms would completely fall asleep down to the tips of my fingers. I felt like I had concrete in my legs it was so hard to walk. I slept a lot and I was turning purple/blue. I could get into a steaming hot bath and turn it cold within 15 minutes because I was so cold.

I never made the connection between these protein powders and my health. By June of 2016 I went to see Dr. Brownstein and started my monthly supplement and alternative treatment regimens which included thyroid meds, bio-identical hormones, ozone blood transfusions and a lot more. It was expensive to say the least. I was still low carb and still religiously drinking my Paleo Protein protein powder and Collagen powders. I did this until December 2018 when the light finally went on and I started to eliminate things. I was tired of spending the amount of money I was spending on my monthly regime and I was tired of swallowing all the damn stuff. I started asking a lot of questions. I started eating more red meat, donating blood and eating raw liver. Magically I started having to quit or cut in half the things I was taking because I was starting to have adverse reactions and my energy was through the roof. I felt like I was on to something and then by chance, came across Dr. Shawn Baker’s instagram page and I couldn’t stop reading and looking. I was very reluctant at first but after reading so many testimonies and remembering my own, I started eating steaks and red meat every day. Then I realized I wasn’t eating enough and started eating more. By July, I was able to quit all my bio-identical hormones and by August 2019 I was able to quit all remaining supplements, including my thyroid medication.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I started out with 6 oz tenderloin steak a day with stew meat and burgers and I was still mixing in veggies. I wasn’t convinced that the few veggies I was eating were bad for me. But, I was still having a few issues so I was like lets quit them for 30 days and see what happens. It was amazing. I will never go back. Now I am trying to eat more every day. I drink raw goat milk, 6 oz of raw goat kefir, eat 9 oz steak and have either 1 lb of burgers or other red meat. I’m trying to eat 1.5 lbs a day. I have a tendency to under eat and end up malnourished. I also add in a little bit of raw beef liver/heart once a week.

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

My energy has increased and I’ve been able to come off of all my supplements, bio-identical hormones and thyroid medication (3 grams of naturethroid). It’s been about 4 months since I quit my thyroid medication so we will see as time goes on how I do. So far so good. Fingers crossed. I don’t struggle with my weight, and I’m strong AF! Almost zero gas too which is amazing! Even on my low carb diet I had some gas. My recovery time after training is insane and I don’t get injuries.

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

None really but be prepared for some digestive upset/changes in the first few months of making the change.

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

I train contortion and calisthenics’s, but mostly contortion right now. I used to be a pole fitness instructor and into pole fitness. I will get back to that as soon as I get as bendy as I can. The great thing about the Carnivore diet is that I don’t have to exercise like I once did to keep my body or abs. I mean I could and look even better but why? I love the exercise I do now. The thought of going to a gym and doing squats and weights… I left that life a long time ago. Stretching is where you will find me.

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

DO IT! Read Shawn Baker’s book The Carnivore Diet first so you know what you are doing.

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

I wish it would but I think people are so highly addicted to their food and the way it makes them feel that unless they REALLY put more value on their health and feeling awesome, they will continue to come up with every excuse in the book as to why they can’t eat only meat. They will refuse to see the connection between their food and their health.

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

My instagram handle is @fredammoon you can do anything you put your mind to as long as you are willing to put in the time, commitment and work. Carnivore requires the least amount of work/effort to accomplish the most powerful goals!

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Erin

Interview with Erin

Snapchat-576195744

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Erin. I am 32 years old & live in Northern Michigan.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I ate the SAD crap diet up until July 23rd, 2018 & then I went Keto. I went Carnivore Janurary 23rd, 2019.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I loved how I felt eating keto, but still was having gut issues & anxiety/depression, I knew of people trying carnivore and seeing marked improvements with all of the above & decided to go for it. It was an absolute game changer for me.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat, I would say, 95% animal products, heavy on ruminants. I also incorporate some random keto products like KetoBrick from time to time, when I feel like it. I eat loads of eggs & use seasonings. I also drink organic coffee.

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

My mental health has been the biggest positive benefit of going carnivore. I am way more calm, zen, and can maintain my positivity VS being constantly anxious & depressed, which I was, on the SAD diet and it also lingered when I was Keto. Plus, my body has never looked better with not nearly the ‘effort’ I used to put in for 0 results.

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

So far, I have no negatives eating this way.

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

I did not exercise more than daily movement for the first few months going carnivore, but I now try and go for walks/hikes daily and also incorporate some strength training/moves with my bodyweight. I find my stamina and endurance have increased and I can push myself considerably from before.

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 suggest to take the leap for minimum 30 days….more like 60. It was an absolute game changer for me. When you do go all in, don’t be afraid of eating too much. I ate and ate and ate at first….I didn’t (and still don’t) count anything.

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

I hope some day that the carnivore way of eating becomes more mainstream, the looks I get from some people when they find out how I eat, is quite ridiculous and humorous, to be honest.

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

I try and eat quality animal products, locally sourced, when possible. I 100% believe in regenerative farming and grass-fed, pasture raised beef & free roaming animals. Do what you can, when you can! This way of eating does not have to be crazy expensive. I believe this way of eating can benefit so many, if/when tried.

I can be found on Instagram, @erin.lena.

Where I share bits and pieces of my life and definitely eating carnviore and healing.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Jayvee

Interview with Jayvee

IMG_7161

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Jayvee, 36 years old and was raised in the Philippines. I moved to Alberta, Canada in 2008. I’m a food and beverage worker and have mostly worked around food all my life. I live with a 4 year old Bichon Shihtzu named Wicket who keeps me busy. I love him! I started the carnivore diet in July 2018.

I was at my heaviest weight in 2017. I was dealing with PCOS, insulin resistance, dysbiosis, inflammation, skin issues and high blood pressure. Diabetes runs in our family. So, March of 2017, I started turning things around. I did Keto for a year. I lost 60lbs doing that and learned about Carnivore last year.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore

Changing the original meaning of S.A.D. to Standard “Asian”Diet. Hahaha!! —— I ate mostly rice and bread. I pretty much start my day with rice and egg. I can never have enough of rice. I also had the biggest sweet tooth in the world. I always had to have something sweet daily. I’ve always struggled with my weight until I became really sick and just not feeling good overall. I’m one of millions of people who have tried every diet there is until I found about the ketogenic diet.

I transitioned from keto to carnivore.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I was doing great with keto, I lost 60lbs but my blood pressure was still high even with medication. My hair was falling out. Even though I was losing weight and shredding off inches in all places, I didn’t feel quite optimal. I actually felt weak and too skinny. My friends think I’m fading away. I was still experiencing Candida flare ups. I had rheumatic fever when I was a young kid and took antibiotics daily for years. My gut was a mess.

So, when I thought that keto was gonna be the forever solution for me to be healthier, my stomach wasn’t agreeing with all the vegetables like spinach, kale, zucchini, cabbage, etc. My candida issues flared up whenever I eat veggies as such. Avocados would give me the worst stomach ache or will make me burp for hours. Nuts have became a problem for me too.

Then I came across zero carb fast challenges on Instagram. I just started eating a whole lot of meat. I felt great after 7 days and I did enjoy the benefits and experience so I just kept going.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I make things as simple as it can be. I mostly do beef, salt and water approach. I enjoy fatty cuts of meat like ribeyes and pork belly. I do enjoy cooking and miss spending a lot of time in the kitchen especially baking.

I incorporate beef liver in my diet every week. My body seems to tell me when I need it the most. Especially during ovulation period, I just can’t have enough beef liver. I actually crave it.

I am familiar with how to prepare some organ meats or do a nose to tail kind of approach. I ate a lot of it before but I just can’t get them where I live.

I also like to eat cheese from time to time and I still drink coffee with cream. With cream, I use half and half (10%) or 18%. If I use heavy cream, it’s a little too fatty for me. I also add beef gelatin powder to my coffee. I eat a lot of eggs too.

I do intermittent fasts (12hrs minimum). I make sure I nourish myself with electrolytes and bone broth during extended fasts of 36hrs or more.

I buy meat that fits my budget. So I’m not strict about eating only grass fed meat. Although, grass fed liver, to me, is a different story. Grass fed beef liver is waaaay tastier. I can’t recommend it enough.

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

Oh, wow! Where do I begin? Well, that ZERO CARB ZEN! It’s amazing. It’s that feeling when you feel at peace with your body. That you are nourishing it well and your body says thank you.

Within 2 months of going full on carnivore, I just felt amazing. Then I hit my lowest weight. I also got off my blood pressure pills that time.

Having PCOS since 21, my periods now are not painful. I learned to become more in tuned with my reproductive health and actually used it as a marker. I get regular, shorter periods now.

My stomach also felt better. Now, bloating is a sign that I ate something that didn’t agree with me or I had too much fat for the day.

My hair grows fast, skin is great, mood is stable and mind is clear. I sleep well. Sometimes, a little too well.

Mental clarity. You know when they say that your brain is lit? I felt that. Carnivore with fasting made me dig deeper to self awareness.

Sweet cravings have gone down. I got more control now of my urges. I am not perfect, sometimes I give in and have keto treats (but apparently, that doesn’t agree with me anymore either). Mentally, I am more aware and better as the old me would have beaten myself and feel bad about my choices and just be stuck in that cycle all together.

I can fast longer and I’m not hungry all the time.

With full disclosure, I was off carnivore for about 3 months this year and also did keto-carnivore approach for a bit. I was on vacation and going through some personal stuff. I really didn’t feel good about that. But I am taking that as a positive experience. It made me want to go back to carnivore diet even more as I don’t want that awful feeling again. My body became very sensitive to carbs and even keto meals.

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

The social aspect of it. People still can’t grasp the idea that you can survive just eating meat. People think I am crazy and what I am doing is unhealthy. And I am in awe of how many people have asked me about my bowel movement! Hahaha! It’s just one of those awkward conversations you have to deal with.

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

Initially, I didn’t. But once I started incorporating a little workout here and there, I actually enjoyed it. I felt a lot better and got energy. I don’t have a regular exercise routine. I walk my dog for a minimum of 3kms almost everyday. I move a lot. Working 2 jobs most days, work is moderately active and I’m on my feet 80% of the time.  But I do think I should exercise more and establish a routine. I started doing kettlebell workouts and stretches at home and I do enjoy them.

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

Just give it a try for at least a month. Keep things simple. There are a lot of information around now about this way of eating. Look for like minded people. Set your goals but don’t just focus on losing weight. I think this is where people get so discouraged. When they see that the scale is not moving, they give up. Get to know yourself and see how you feel about your body. Don’t make things complicated. Start with cuts of meat you can afford and has access to. Eat when hungry and do not overthink things. Stick to it and your body will thank you!

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

Probably not. People are triggered of anything that is extreme. If people will hear more success stories like ours, I think they will at least open their minds to it and accept the fact that it actually works for a lot of people.

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

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share my story. I hope in a way, I can inspire people to take that step in reclaiming their health through this way of eating.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Lukasz

Interview with Lukasz

lucas

1) Introduce Yourself.

I’m Lukasz, 36 years old, living in Warsaw in Poland.

From childhood I was so into the sports and shaping my body. I am fascinated by how our body can heal itself and how we need nature like our ancestors.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore?

Well, when I was at secondary school, around 17 years old I started to work out at home and gym and started to pay attention to what I eat. So my first nutritionist knowledge I got from magazines like FLEX or Muscles and Fitness. So…because of that advice I started to avoid saturated fast and eat a lot of carbs (oats, rice, whole grain bread) and chicken breast. This time of overeating and not being comfortable with food developed bad relationships to food and moreover some problems with my insulin sensitivity. After a huge breakfast of oats I was not able to stop falling asleep during my lessons then I started to drink coffee. During the last 17 years, I tried many diets and ways of eating: high carbs, vegan, 10-day water fasting (two times – those times I had no idea that during those days my body ran on ketones). Around 2014 I found first time some information about paleo (Robb Wolf, Mark Sisson etc) I was so fascinated about the fact that such delicious food like eggs and meat where allowed,  which I liked so much, weren’t so unhealthy as I thought before lol. And this is how I started my journey with a low-carb approach. After few years of testing healthy/paleo approach but not being satisfied 100% (I had energy drops during the day- probably my body had not enough carbs to create energy but still too many carbs to start producing ketones) I found on YT the film of Jason Wittrock:

https://youtu.be/YoA5yAvbN5U

It was in April 2018, just after Easter Holiday (I was full of sugar after celebrating the Easter). I was truly fascinated and I decided to try and put my body in a state of ketosis. It tooked to my body around 5 days to completely use the glycogen stored in my muscles and start using ketones – I will never forget how different and better I felt – the most important thing, my energy drops disappeared, my energy level was constant, I started waking up early even without the ring and naturally feel sleepy around 22.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

After following Shawn Baker, Paul Saladino, The primal edge health and reading Steven Gundry book I started to realize that maybe we do not need so much the plants and the whole issue about the importance of veggies is just propaganda.

I decided to give the carnivore a try.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet?

The animal product from best and local sources, eat beef, eggs, seafood, liver, occasionally chicken – generally, the nose2tail eating seems to be the most accurate and in line with the ancestors’ approach

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

Finally, I was able to get shredded and improve my guts (I am still working on healing it)

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

My digestion system at the beginning was a bit shocked (no fiber)

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

yes: gym, swimming, running

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

keep trying even if you had some cheat meals (not enough strong will power), even if something kicked you out of ketosis, even if you feel energy deficiency, it will pass away – enjoy the process.

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

nope – it is too radical and completely opposite to mainstream which is promoting plant-based food which is in line with what is now produced in the world (GMO, cheap large soybean, corn)

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

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Jon

Interview with Jon

93A1DA61-6A71-4FB1-86C2-6D6FA5B31611

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Jon Rhinehart. I am a dad, dog lover, mountain biker and husband. I like to go hiking with my dogs, spending time with my family and mountain biking with my friends. I also like to study nutrition and I listen to podcasts while I am out adventuring. I live in Arizona so the outdoors activities here are amazing.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Before the carnivore diet, I did Keto for two years. Before that, I was Standard American diet.  My Keto was a whole-food, clean Keto. I followed Doctor Berg for most of my diet advice. I did lose all my weight doing that. I went from 285-195. But I had terrible digestion. I never had that on the SAD diet. I was eating these huge salads every day, a small amount of fatty meat followed by a handful of nuts and a couple squares of dark chocolate.  I tried kimchi and types of probiotics and none of that helped. Looking back on it now I realised I was eating way more fiber and anti nutrients than my body could handle.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I started the Carnivore Diet because of my bad digestion on Keto. I also was listening to Shawn Baker, and Amber O’hearn. I wanted to see if the carnivore diet would help me lose the last 15-20 lbs that I felt that I had to loose. I knew about it from all my Keto podcast. I was on the fence with it for about a year before I dove in and tried it. Of course I was like everyone else and said I will try it for 30 days. That turned into 90, then 365 and now I have no intention of changing.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

My Carnivore diet started with coffee, meat, spices, and dairy . I did that for for several months. I had skin itchiness that didn’t go away on Keto it also didn’t go away when I first started Carnivore. I then decided to go deeper. I cut out everything except meat, salt and water. As soon as I did that the itchiness went away. I later found out that it was Dairy all along. Since then I have added back eggs, spices, and coffee. A typical day of eating for me is about 2-3 lbs of red meat. I eat a few eggs sprinkled in 3-4 cups of black coffee a day.

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

Since starting the Carnivore diet.  My weight has stayed the same but I have lost 4 inches off my waist. I can climb higher and go further on my mountain bike. I never get sick, I have boundless energy all the time. My seasonal allergies are gone. I still had some food cravings on Keto. On Carnivore its amazing. I don’t have thoughts of food like I did on Keto. My digestion is absolutely flawless now. I feel almost weightless . I feel like I am eating now to fuel my body. I find it incredibly freeing.

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

The only negative I would say about the diet is that it is not very socially acceptable. I don’t fit into this low fat world. I can’t really go out to eat without it costing a lot of money.

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

I do exercise, I like to paddleboard, hike, mountain bike, I find that for my age I am incredibly fit. I never run out of endurance and I can do it all on an empty stomach.

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

My advice for anyone who wants to try this diet is to try it. But have the honesty and intelligence to interpret the results. Be sure that you give it a fair shot. You might have to go 90 days meat, salt, and water only to see if it truly works.

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

I have read Good Calories Bad Calories a dozen times. The first few times I read to book I was hyper-focused on the energy balance weight loss aspect of that book that the mainstream science screwed up so badly. But after going Carnivore and rereading that book a few more times. I picked up on the main part of that book which I believe now to be the disappearance of animal foods from our diet caused by an anti-meat agenda, religious ideology, and financial interest. The consequence of that is the science has been completely wrong for the last 120 year. I really hope that this carnivore moment will be excepted. That is why I choose to share my story and write this testimonial.

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

I was an alcoholic, overweight, had high blood pressure, terrible anxiety and constantly agitated and angry. I was not a nice person. Keto helped me 85% of the way to the person I am today. I believe Keto works so well because its closer to carnivore than the SAD diet. You end cutting out lots of the processed foods like sugar, refined carbs and seed oils. I feel that many end up eating far more veggies than they used to when they go on Keto and those are actually not that healthy and cause many people issues. I consider them now starvation food and a complete waste of time. I feel like I have finally figured out how to make all the pieces of health and nutrition fit together. All signs point to Carnivore.

Meat Up Year One

Meat Up: One Year Later – with Nicole

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

IMG_7065

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?

 Healthy With Nicole on Instagram and YouTube

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.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Vesna

Interview with Vesna

cg

  1. Introduce yourself.

Hello! I’m an alternative vocalist from Slovenia (the sunny side of Alps), 22 years old and currently still working on my nutrition licence.

  1. How did you eat before Carnivore?

I tried many diets. I believe I could say I’ve done it all. At first to loose weight and later to fix the health problems that came with loosing weight in an unhealthy way. I became a vegetarian at only 12 years old. I started having health issues and from what I was reading (plant-based propaganda) I was supposed to go vegan to resolve all my problems and to loose weight  (I was never obese, but I was a bit overweight, which I wrongfully blamed on the cheese). And I did. I became vegan, lost the weight and got sicker. I first turned pale, then yellow (it looked like my liver failed, but it was the carotenoids from the provitamin A that my body wasn’t converting to vitamin A). I had anemia, slight osteoporisys (at the age of 18 I had the bones of a 40 y.o.), severe vitamin D, B12 and S-feritine (iron storage) deficiencies to the point my doctor said ”no wonder you have chronic pain, I’m honestly surprised you can sit up.”. This still didn’t stop me. I tried to do a fitness licence but all I did was run myself into the ground. I couldn’t grow muscle, not even by going back to a vegetarian diet (trying to increase my protein). I was honestly on my deathbed then. I was on and off vegan because I felt bad for eating animal products. I could only do basic survival tasks and was unable to work. I was seriously considering filing in for a disability card because of my debilitating chronic pain. I knew I needed to change. The vitamins I was prescribed had zero effect on my deficiencies. Then I found Dr.Berg with the help of my friend at the time. We both went keto and I did that for a year.  I went carnivore in November 2018.

  1. Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

I was still bloated and hungry on a ketogenic diet. I later discovered I wasn’t digesting plant foods by eliminating anything that bloated me or made me run to the loo.

  1. How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet?

I am more of a relaxed type. I can digest dairy well, so hard cheeses and sour cream is included in my diet. I mostly eat beef, butter and eggs, sometimes salmon with caviar and rarely chicken, and pork. I try to get as much grass-fed and wild-caught as I can afford.

  1. What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet?

No more bloating, super fast fat loss, overall decrease in my chronic pain (I have cluster headaches), no more hunger (which is my favourite), more energy, no more acne (none at all!, see photo), muscle growth …

  1. What negatives have you found with the Carivore Diet?

None. I love this woe.

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

I love exercise! I cycle, rollerblade, climb mountains, run, swim, go to the gym. I did a one month gym transformation (photo below) form my Instagram and challenged myself to long-distance walk (backpacking) for two days (which I plan to do again  in the future).

cg2

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

What are you still waiting for?! Give it a shot for 14 days and see how you feel. 14 days has never hurt anybody. Listen to your body, read some articles.

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

It is possible. But there is a lot of push back from the plant-based propaganda, the pharmaceutical and food industry because of profit.

  1. Anything you would like to add and where can people follow you? 

See my vegan vs carnivore face (photo below), excuse the bad quality, but I’m sure you can see the difference! Even my facial fat distribution changed and take a good look at the fullness of my lips and the amount of my hair.

You can follow me on instagram @carnivoregoth.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Daniel

Interview with Daniel

IMG_6932

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Daniel Munro. I’m a Canadian musician who has been struggling with atopic dermatitis and topical steroid withdrawal for the last 5 years.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I ate mostly processed junk food and fast food. If I was making food for myself it was usually stuff like pasta, stir fry (usually a variety of vegetables like peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, with chicken breast and a teriyaki sauce), fruit smoothies, toast with eggs. I was also a very frequent drinker.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I had tried everything else. After my health went downhill my wife Kelsey and I tried a lot of different diets to address the problem. We started by trying a vegetarian diet, then we went paleo, then keto, then back to paleo. I even had an IgE/IgG blood allergy test done and cut out any offending foods from my diet for over a year. Finally after trying everything else I tried carnivore and started seeing results by the end of my first month.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

We try to do nose to tail. We incorporate organ meats and have broth as often as possible (nearly daily). I tend to start the day with a bone broth then don’t eat anything until around 10AM where I eat a can of sardines. Then at lunch I have 10 oz. of ground beef. When I get home I will have whatever kind of meat is available: steak, chicken wings, bacon, pork butt being some of our favourites.

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

The biggest benefit has been my skin clearing up. I had cracks (more like cuts) on my neck, wrists, fingers and knuckles. Oozing on my face, hands, and feet. This kept me from being able to work for 4 years and kept me mostly bed ridden. My sleep schedule was a mess, I couldn’t sleep at all at night and would lie awake at night unable to sleep even though I was exhausted (wired but tired), also accompanied by intermittent itch fits throughout the night. I now sleep relatively soundly at night. An unlikely benefit has also been a huge decrease in my depression, which is something I have lived with all my life. It decreased so gradually that I barely even noticed, but as I started seeing results in my physical appearance my mental state also started to improve. Overall I feel calmer and less stressed while eating this way. I do believe that my gut health was destroyed by eating too many processed carbs before, while also eating way too much. I think this stressed my digestive system and ended up causing a lot of stress for me.

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

It’s hard to eat anything that I haven’t prepared myself. Eating at conventional restaurants is basically impossible since they all tend to use seed oils or my food gets cross contaminated with something that I react to. I have also had a hard time gaining much weight while on this diet. That could be due my gut dysbiosis.

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

My job is rather physical (shipping/receiving) so I lift a lot of heavy boxes all day and am walking around a lot. I do a lot of yoga and try to get some body-weight and kettle bell workouts in when I can 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.

Eat nose to tail. Organ meat is necessary to get the full array of nutrients that you won’t be getting from vegetables in a more bio-available form. Bone marrow is also awesome.

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

I’m back and forth on this. I see a big push right now for people to not eat meat. However, when you look at the health benefits people are experiencing it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore. When you really start to dig into the evidence it becomes more and more logical: you can get almost all the necessary vitamins, nutrients and amino acids necessary to thrive from meat, in a more bio-available form. Our digestive systems has evolved to eat meat; we have one stomach and a short colon, we simply lack the digestive enzymes needed to properly digest plant material. We developed tools initially to extract bone marrow from animal bones and ate animal products for a lot longer than we have been eating fruits and vegetables in the quantities we do today, let alone the amount of processed food we have been introduced to over the past few decades. I think there’s good reason to think that a lot of us aren’t adapted to today’s modern high carbohydrate diet.

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

I think finding a community online can really help with this diet. No one I know in real life follows this diet; some of them would even think that it’s crazy to even do. Finding support online can provide you with useful tips on how to maximise your results as well as help you from feeling like you’re some meat crazed weirdo.
