World Carnivore Month – IBS – Day 17

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Basically it is digestive distress, with symptoms like bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea, and cramps.

It can just manifest occasionally or chronically.

The NHS helpfully states there is no cure, and no exact cause, but it is probably just something that causes the food to pass too fast or too slow through your digestive system.

Cheers NHS UK…

If you report possible IBS problems to your doctor, here in the UK you will probably get a Coeliac disease blood test or you will get your poop tested for IDB and infections.

And too be fair the NHS do make a point of stressing diet and lifestyle changes will be needed. And their dietary advice isn’t too bad, but it could be a lot better.

Most digestive issues seem to happen in the Large intestine, so I think if you ate food that digested mainly in the stomach and small intestine then you would be less likley to suffer from digestive diseases like IBS.

I have a fair few carnivore diet success stories on IBS and IBD, you can read them all here –

Rebekah “I am an overcomer of over ten autoimmune diseases, chronic lyme disease, chronic c-diff, multiple mood disorders, IBS, IBD, diverticulitis, and more.”

Ralph “The main benefit I have experienced is an improvement in my IBS symptoms. My digestion has improved tremendously and going strict carnivore for 6 weeks helped me pin-point a lot of food triggers that I wasn’t aware of. I would say I’m about 90-95% Carnivore, but I also throw in what I can tolerate now such as avocado, cucumber, and some berries – but this isn’t daily. I also used to have issues with satiety and would use fiber/veggies as a means to “fill myself up.” I didn’t realize how much proper protein/fat intake would be more useful for that instead of filling up on fiber (which made my IBS symptoms WORSE).”

Kirsty “As a past competitor in the fitness industry I have tried every diet out there and seem to have also incorporated every type of supplement and short cut possible to get lean, build muscle etc. What I realized was I was really my most unhealthiest version on myself with ulcers in my 20’s, diagnosed with IBS, Diagnosed autoimmune disorder, back surgery,  showing up in emerge with a large intestinal blockage to find out that there is no cure! How’s this possible when I’m eating so “healthy”? It was when the only option was surgery I was told to try a strict elimination diet. This is when I did some research and decided to go on a Strict Carnivore way of eating.”

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 – with Rebekah

Interview with Rebekah

Introduce Yourself

Hello! My name is Rebekah farmer. I am an overcomer of over ten autoimmune diseases, chronic lyme disease, chronic c-diff, multiple mood disorders, IBS, IBD, diverticulitis, and more. I love nature, holistic medicine, music, and elephants 🙂 …

How did you eat before Carnivore

Paleo, then keto for over 15 years. I’ve never eaten the standard American diet.

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with

Danny Vega introduced me to the idea when I was suffering with autoimmune disease. It took me a long time to actually try it. I was in my third emergency room in a row, 70 lb at 5-6 and desperate to gain weight. They said I would have to remove my colon and be hooked up to a feeding tube. That’s why I decided to go full carnivore.

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet

This way of eating looks different for each person and it needs to sue our bio individual needs. I prefer variety and options within the healthy boundaries that keep me healing, supported. I don’t think that a diet is helpful unless it is sustainable. This is food freedom. I approached it with my newfound intuition and understanding that is gained with leptin sensitivity and systemic healing.

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet

I have my life back! I don’t have pain, I can think clearly and I have energy. My sleep is wonderful, and I am so strong! Mentally resilient, no cravings, so grateful. I have also reversed scleroderma which is pretty amazing!

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet

They should really make chest freezers with better shelving.

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

I lift heavy and only do cardio for pleasure like light walks in the morning and evening. I do it because it feels amazing and I love being strong and getting stronger.

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

Take everyone’s advice with a grain of salt. There is no one diet that works perfectly for everyone. You are different from everyone else. Find a coach if you need extra support. Trust and appreciate the process.

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

Yes
