Carnivore Diet success stories – with Michaela

Interview with Michaela

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Michaela Bileci. I am Scottish but managed to escape the rain and now live in Tuscany with my husband and daughter Ava. I home-school my daughter Ava who has Autism and Epilepsy and am in the process of building a website, which will serve as a support to other families who have children with Autism. I am also currently studying for a degree in Psychology, with the aim to specialise in neurological disorders such as Autism and ADD/ADHD.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

When my daughter was diagnosed with Autism, I completely changed both of our diets as we both tested positive for coeliac disease and had various food intolerances. I have eaten a gluten free/ dairy free diet for over ten years and in the past two years, focused on the Ketogenic Diet as a way to support my own health and also support my daughter who was on this diet for seizure control.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I have suffered with many health problems in my life such as asthma, depression, anxiety, coeliac disease, arthritis, psoriasis, chronic fatigue and hypothyroidism. Despite my best attempts at other dietary therapies (GFCF, BED, GAPS etc) and biomedical interventions, I was still on a pile of medications.  If there was a treatment available, then I was first in line to try it. There’s nothing I haven’t “bio-hacked”!

This led me to keep searching for answers. I heard about the Carnivore Diet after listening to the Joe Rogan Podcast with Mikhaila Peterson. At that point in my life, I was in constant joint pain and was on high levels of corticosteroids every day trying to reduce painful inflammation and breathing difficulties related to my Asthma and past episodes of pneumonia. I would also have severe immunological reactions to random foods and some have resulted in hospitalisation for treatment. I really didn’t have anything to lose, yet had everything to gain.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I’m currently following the Level 1 Autoimmune Protocol from Craig and Maria Emmerich’s book “The Carnivore Cookbook”.  I will be moving to Level 2 soon to see if that works for me.  I obviously have to be a little stricter with the Carnivore diet than some people due to the severity of my Autoimmune problems.  Most days, my meals are steak, salt and water based. I use beef tallow/suet if I want to add a little fat to my meals. I find steak agrees with my body more than ground beef. I only eat one meal or two meals daily, as I’m incorporating intermittent fasting into the Carnivore Diet too. IF happened quite naturally as I find myself more satiated after eating on the Carnivore Diet. As time goes on, I would like to introduce other things, but for now, this is my happy place health wise.

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

I’m off all of my medication and have lost 25 kilograms!

One by one, the need for each medication disappeared. The psoriasis plaques that were all over my body have cleared up and all the inflammation around my joints has disappeared. I don’t take inhalers, antihistamines or corticosteroids anymore and I naturally weaned off of escitalopram and clonazepam for depression and severe anxiety.

I recently ran another thyroid panel and all my levels are in the optimal range, which is a stark contrast to how it was before. I had gained 50 kilograms and have now lost half of that in 7 months of eating Carnivore.

However, I think the starkest contrast is in my energy levels. Before the Carnivore Diet, I could barely lift my head off of the pillow and now I’m able to walk, run and hike pain-free, which is just phenomenal. That’s the real blessing. Having the energy to play with my daughter and go on outings with my family- that’s priceless.

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

I haven’t really found there to be any negatives with the Carnivore Diet or eating this way because I have had such improvements in my state of health.

The only thing I would warn people with severe autoimmune conditions about, is that this is a very potent and therapeutic diet. I made the gargantuan mistake of thinking I was fine and all my health issues had disappeared and ate some gluten free, dairy free pizza. The next morning, I was taken by ambulance to the hospital and spent the week there because the immunological reaction was so severe. My father had to bring me out of hospital in a wheelchair because I couldn’t walk. It took a month of strict Carnivore to correct that mistake.  I would caution people with Autoimmune Conditions that this is not something you can play around with. Commit and remain consistent if you have similar issues to me.  That would be the only negative I would say that I have experienced.

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

Yes, I love to exercise and now spend a lot of time outdoors. Most days, I go for a jog and do a kettlebell workout. I also enjoy wild swimming, hiking and ballet. I wasn’t able to exercise for years due to pain and fatigue and now it’s a breath of fresh air. It’s such a joy to be able to go hiking or jogging pain-free.

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 they read a bit first to help them understand what the diet is about and why removing plant toxins is useful. There are several ways to go about implementing the Carnivore Diet and I personally think it’s important to have that information at your disposal. I would recommend reading anything by Craig and Maria Emmerich, Dr. Shawn Baker or Dr. Paul Saladino. They all put out excellent material and you will find out which approach resonates with you and works for your body. Understand your reasons for wanting to do this diet and don’t become dogmatic. Listen to your body!

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

I hope so. My desire would be to see the Carnivore Diet accepted as a healing protocol, if nothing else. However, I do see that the tide is now turning, and many people are returning to ancestral dietary wisdom, turning their backs on the low-fat, sugar and grain propaganda of the past fifty years. Animal products are an extremely beneficial, not to mention crucial component of a healthy human diet.

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

I would encourage people who feel like this diet resonates with them to give it a try. Try it for at least a month, ideally three months and see how you feel. My guess is that you won’t look back.

I am in remission from asthma, anxiety, depression, psoriasis, arthritis, chronic fatigue and hypothyroidism. I gained 50 kilograms in a year when my thyroid function was underactive and within 7 months of the Carnivore Diet, I have optimal thyroid function and have lost a little over 25 kilograms so far. This Diet is a powerful, healing protocol that has given me my life back.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success story – with Rosie

Interview with Rosie

1. Introduce yourself

My name is Rosie Lombard and I am 25 years old. I live in Cape Town, South Africa with my boyfriend who is a professional body boarder and surfs on the world tour. We live right near the beach and love to spend our days in the ocean and outdoors. I am an english teacher and work in a private school about 20 minutes from my house as well as teach English online from my house. I have always had a passion for working with children, especially children with special needs. I graduated in 2018 and obtained my BEd degree. When I left high school I became very obsessed with my health and did anything to loose weight. Looking back now, I realise I was always so unhappy with myself and my body. My thoughts about myself were always negative and I defiantly always punished myself with food restriction and exercise.

In the last 6 years my relationship with food suffered terribly and I went to extremes to loose weight and to change what I saw in the mirror. When I hit puberty , loosing weight seemed impossible for me and everything I tried in the past , didn’t work. I just kept gaining weight until I hit my heaviest weight ever. I was so unhappy and so desperate that eventually it lead to developing some very bad habits. In January 2015 I finally started loosing weight by cutting out major food groups like most carbs, protein and fat which by no means is healthy at all. But because this allowed me to loose weight I didn’t care about the damage it would do to my body. I started training excessively and eventually only ate low carb veg and drank tons of tea to keep my body warm and this helped me feel ‘full’.  In October 2015 i was diagnosed with anorexia. My whole life changed and I was lucky enough to recover from this horrible illness. The after effects of anorexia have been terrible, even though I am back to a healthy weight and have managed to maintain it. In the last few years I have developed hypothyroidism, anxiety and struggle with brittle teeth and excessive hair loss.

It may sound exaggerated but Carnivore has defiantly SAVED my life and I am so pleased I am able to share my journey with you today.

2. How did you eat before Carnivore?

During my teen years I became very aware of things like sugar, carbs, gluten and dairy. These things seemed to affect my weight and body very negatively. For the most part I tried cutting them out but never was very serious about it. When I left school, this is when I started forming my Anorexia habits and I basically cut everything out expect low carb veggies and continued to eat this way for about a year and a half. After recovery , when I gained quite a bit of weight back eating whatever I could because I needed huge amounts of calories, I slowly started to restrict again. For some obscure reasons I had an intense fear of fats and protein ( which is ironic because thats basically my whole diet right now) so I opted for mostly veggies and very lean protein in small amounts but absolutely no fat. You could most defiantly call how I ate after becoming weight restored – disordered. Due to the restrictions and my body being so hungry for nutrition, this would lead me to binge on carbie, sugary foods all the time. In 2017 I ate mostly a pescatarian diet but limiting fats and protein and still eating majority veggies. Something I have realised in these few years and right now is my body just doesn’t feel great when eating carbs and this is part of the reason I love carnivore because it makes me feel so great. A year before carnivore, I ate mostly a low carb diet but defiantly did not eat high fat. My relationship with food before carnivore was so messed up and I suffered from severe IBS every time I ate any kind of food whether it was salad, veg, fish etc. I would immediately bloat and become so constipated. I think it is safe to say that my diet before carnivore was all over the place and very inconsistent.

3. Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

In November 2018 my boyfriend and I took a trip to the US to visit my Aunt in Florida. I had just finished my final year at University and it was defiantly a very stressful time, so when I went over to Florida, I was able to relax and finally focus on fixing all the damage I had done over the years. My whole mindset was defiantly still to be lean and skinny and I remember being wide awake at about 2am due to jet lag and scrolling the internet. Somehow I came across Kevin Stock’s website and started reading his blogs about carnivore. Let me tell you I grew up eating a lot of meat and ever since cutting it out, my body craved it but due to my disordered eating I never let myself have it. So I thought to myself that I would give it a try and I did but I still ate greens and opted for very lean protein. Again my silly fear of fat got the better of me.  In this time I slowly started introducing more beef and I could tell that it was helping my body and just how much my body was craving it. I started becoming ok with eating more and more meat and I gradually increased my calories. It honestly felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I was breaking free from my old habits. So I would say initially I tried carnivore for weight-loss and I am so glad I did try it because looking back now it has given me so many more benefits and has helped me heal many things within my body. Just to clarify, I have not lost weight on the carnivore diet, I have actually gained weight since starting it properly, eating only animals and animal products, but this was necessary for my body to heal and I have made peace with that. I have been full carnivore for about 10 months now as prior to that after my US trip I was more meat based and still consuming a few plants in my diet.

4. How do you personally approach  the carnivore diet?

For me I have recently made the change to Grass-fed beef and free range meat only. I am lucky enough to get some great produce from farms around my area. I eat any kind of meat from beef, seafood, chicken, pork, lamb and I love eggs. I eat grass-fed butter, ghee and consume bone broth regularly. Recently I have started incorporating some organ meat in the form of beef heart. I have tried liver but I just can’t stomach the taste so I have found some grass-fed liver capsules which I include into my diet. I keep my diet pretty simple and eat 2 meals a day, lunch and dinner. I like to include eggs in my lunch often and then just eat what ever meat we have available at that time. I love to nibble on bones from the meat ( my weird fetish haha). Recently I noticed I was becoming quite fatigued and lethargic so I have made a conscious effort to up my fat intake which has helped so much.

As for coffee, I know there is some controversy around it but honestly I feel to each their own. Coffee doesn’t seem to affect me negatively and every morning I have a half decaf, half regular brew with some grass-fed collagen mixed into it. Since starting carnivore my need for caffeine has down scaled quite radically and I only honestly drink it for the tase. I don’t drink any alcohol and have not for the last 5 years so that has never really been a factor for me.  I make sure to drink about 2 L of  water daily mostly during my fasting period. I tend to stick to a 16-17 hour fast from my last meal and this works well for me. I have experimented with longer fasting windows but this has been quite triggering for me and I find myself slipping into a ‘binge’ tendency. So for me its pretty simple, eat meat, make sure I’m getting good fats, stay hydrated , eat when hungry and eat to satiety.

I have zero craving with this way of eating so I am never really tempted as I always feel satisfied after my meals.

5. Benefits you have seen on Carnivore?

For me the biggest benefit has been my relationship with food. I am able to eat freely without guilt and the foods I am eating make me feel great. I have noticed that all the food ‘rules’ I created for myself have disappeared and my outlook on food is more for a healing purpose rather than a punishment. My anxiety and depression has lifted and so has my insomnia. I used to wake up every morning at 2am and would not be able to sleep for the rest of the night. Now I very regularly wake up during the night and am getting a good 7 hours. My mood has massively improved. I used to be a very negative person and I think my boyfriend will agree with this on haha. My mental state is so great these days and very regularly to I have bad days where as before it would be the opposite. I am able to be more social with my eating and can enjoy family gatherings and dinners without feeling anxious or out of control. I struggled with so much inflammation from my hypothyroidism and anorexia after becoming weigh restored and since going 100%  carnivore I have lost that ‘puffy’ swollen look on my body and face. I generally  just feel so much more healthier and like a normal functioning human again. This is probably the best I have ever felt in my entire life.

6. What negatives have you found with Carnivore?

Absolutely none. Carnivore has changed my life so much and has added so much good back into it. One factor that I could mention is that eating this way can become expensive but honestly it is so worth it for me because of all the benefits I have seen. I hear many people talk about how you can’t eat this way and maintain the diet for a long period of time but honestly it can’t be further from the truth. I can totally see myself eating this way for the rest of my life. I don’t miss eating anything I used to eat. My family has accepted my diet and my boyfriend has actually converted to a meat-based way of eating for his own health reasons, so socially I have not experienced any negative.  I have come across some negative comments about the way I eat but this works for me and I don’t have to justify my diet to anybody. Again, to each their own I guess 🙂

7. Do you exercise on the Carnivore diet?

Yes even before I started this I was really into weights and lifting. I still continue to do this and I think it extremely beneficial.  I have always loved being active and now that I finally have gotten my nutrition in a good place my workouts have been great. I feel strong and notice that my endurance has increased so much. My schedule right now is , I like to train full body 4 times a week and on the other days I like to stay active by walking, skipping or doing some sort of cardio. Working out is a great stress reliever for me and I noticed that it has been a huge mood booster as well. My body composition has changed so much since I initially started changing but with Carnivore added into the mix , it has really changed and become leaner and more muscular.  Another thing I have noticed is that my motivation to train has increased since carnivore, I guess because I am able to see change within my body which helps me stay eager.

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

Honestly, just do it. I would defiantly recommend to try it for a good few weeks before judging it.  There is so much good information out there now that all your questions or doubts you have about the diet can be answered. For me when I started, I was very hesitant and it slowed the whole process down for me. I wish I just jumped in and started it without all the other bits in-between. So if you are curious or looking to do carnivore for healing, just start.

Something I have learned along my carnivore journey is patience and to not compare your journey to others. We are all different and there is no one-size fits all with this. I think everybody that has started carnivore has different reasons for it so it doesn’t make sense to compare where you are in your journey to someone else. Be patient, let your body heal and don’t focus too much on what others are doing.

9. Do you think carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet?

It is defiantly becoming more popular, no doubt about it but I think it will take some time before it is accepted as a mainstream diet. To most who have not tried it, it seems quite restrictive and excessive but I believe it is becoming more and more popular and people are defiantly way more curious about it.  It is still quite foreign in South Africa and I think there are only a hand-full of carnivore out here but day by day peoples curiosity about the diet is increasing and I hope by sharing my success with it, it will help other gain a new outlook on it. My opinion is that a ‘meat-based’ diet will be more accepted in a society rather than a carnivore way of eating.

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

Carnivore has defiantly saved me in so many ways  and it sound crazy but a simple diet change has added so much back into my life. Th amount of support the carnivore community gives each other is so great and  I have recently started becoming more vocal about my lifestyle on instagram. The amount of support I have received from sharing my journey with carnivore and my eating disorder has been great.

I am very active on my instagram @rosie_lombard where I post about my lifestyle and carnivore related things and I also have a second account where I love to post my meals @rosie_eatsmeat. I have recently started a Youtube channel where i will be posting carnivore related content as well as talking about my eating disorder past so if you are keen to follow my journey my Page is called Rose Lombard.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet Success Stories – with Natalie

Interview with Natalie

healthy me NOW

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Natalie, I am 37 years old and currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I work as a nutritional therapy adviser and recently joined the ICMNI – Paleomedicina Hungary team assisting Dr. Zsofia Clemens and Dr. Csaba Tóth.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore?

I grew up in the south of Italy eating what can be considered as a modern Mediterranean diet.

Pasta, bread, rice and potatoes were the base of my diet, followed by vegetables, some lean animal or vegetable protein and small amounts of olive oil.

I started having health issues very young and after doing some research, I decided to slowly remove animal products from the diet. The first few years, I was still consuming fish and eggs and felt lighter, but this diet didn’t have much impact on reversing my poor health condition. My menstrual cycle disappeared and my health was declining very quickly.  Despite all this, I decided to follow the advice of vegan promoting doctors who claimed that my health problems were related to a still “dirty” diet. Thus, I removed eggs and fish and focused on legumes, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and fruits.

Following along the same chain of thought I then became raw vegan and a fruitarian for a short period.

In 2015, thanks to an Ayurvedic doctor I reintroduced animal products into my diet. And in the past 4 years I went from an Ayurvedic diet passing through a Paleo, Keto and Carnivore, to finally my most successful one, the Paleolithic Ketogenic diet. This latter, helped me get my health back 100%.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

Desperation! I had many symptoms and doctors weren’t able to understand the reasons behind them. I visited all kind of conventional and alternative specialists, spent an unimaginable amount of money on supplements/therapies, but no one ever mentioned the possibility to remove vegetables and oils to improve health conditions until I heard Shawn Baker talking about the carnivore way of eating.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet?

I don’t have a “regular” carnivore diet. The diet I follow is called Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet (PKD) created by Paleomedicina Hungary.

It is a high fat and moderate protein diet.

I eat a 2:1 fat to protein ratio and follow my hunger feeling to decide how many times to eat per day.

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

As I previously mentioned, all the benefits I received came from a Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet (PKD) and not from a “mainstream” carnivore.

In less than a year on PKD I was symptom-free.

Hypothyroidism (medicated for 14 years), non alcoholic fatty liver, scalp eczema, rashes, itchiness, allergies, insomnia, joint pain, amenorrhea, bloating, acid reflux, constipation, nutrient deficiencies, hair loss, water retention, restless leg syndrome, extreme teeth sensitivity and receding gums, very low energy and vitality, lack of memory and concentration, lack of physical strength, inability to deal with stress, foggy mind, often depressed. All these conditions left my body and became the past!

I was able to quit my thyroid medication, painkillers and hundreds of supplements I was consuming. I, then, started nourishing my body only with meat, fat and organ meats, which was in itself a process full of mental challenges and up and downs before my body was completely symptoms-free and healthy. And here I am, feeling better than ever!

sick me

Author: photo from when she was sick.

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

My experience with the regular carnivore diet was 2 months long.

During this time I got my menstrual cycle back and noticed a huge improvement in my gum health. But all of my other symptoms were still present and some of them were getting worse.

I was consuming around 750-1000gr of meat daily with insufficient fat intake. My blood glucose was going through the roof and, despite being fat adapted after 8 months on the ketogenic diet, I was on a very low ketosis level.

As soon as I reduced my protein intake and upped the fat levels following the PKD, I started to feel better shortly.  

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

Yes, I do strength-training three times a week, as well as yoga. I also enjoy hiking, roller blading and swimming.

I must add that when I was in the middle of my healing process I had to stop exercising. It was hard mentally at the beginning because I always loved being active. It was only when I learnt to respect my body’s needs that I really started to notice a big shift in my health.

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 would be to try the diet and see the benefits on your own body. Find a specialist who can guide you personally and avoid following mainstream and Facebook groups suggestions.

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

I hope and wish so, but considering all the interests behind the plant based diet I doubt it will be accepted as a mainstream diet. It’s undeniable that the carnivore lifestyle is quickly gaining more visibility thanks to social media and conferences. Stories of successful results from people, healing through an animal protein and fat diet are a fact, at the same time, I can see how despite this, people are more prone to choose plant based diets with trendy smoothies, Buddha bowls and detox juices.

The food industry and the pharmaceutical companies are doing a “great” job brainwashing people’s minds.

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