Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories with Yuli

Interview with Yuli

1) Introduce Yourself.

I’m Yuli, born in the Soviet Union, raised in Israel, lived in Germany for 8 years and now living in the UK. The carnivore diet helped me reverse and put into permanent remission; Crohn’s disease, Hashimoto thyroiditis, PCOS, IBS, inflammatory arthritis, depression, brain fog, migraines, and a binge eating disorder. I’ve been exclusively carnivore for about 3 years and recently started adding some non-sweet fruit and veg into my diet with no issues, yet animal products are always the main part of every single meal I eat.  

My personal journey may have started with me only trying to change my diet, yet the more I’ve learned about our ancestry the more it seeped into my overall lifestyle. I now have improved my sleep, my focus, my productivity, my creativity, my relationships, and my mindset. All thanks to what started as “a few weeks long” meat only elimination diet. 

This way of eating and getting back to more ancestral values has also inspired me to create art as a carnivore, focusing on the beauty of food animals and the nourishing, health promoting products they provide us. 

I think art changes how people see the world. I think art informs what is valued as beautiful and admirable. Art has been a part of every revolution, evolution, and social movement throughout history. 

There are trends in art just like in any other fashion and while you can walk into any museum and see stunning images of still life featuring meat as a sign of wealth and prosperity in old master paintings – nowadays we have lost it. 

Over time, with the rise of processed foods and the vegan/vegetarian agenda we seemed to have lost the beauty of meat and animal products as a society. A person can walk into any design shop and buy pizza pillows, cupcake shaped serving dishes and anything imaginable with a donut printed on it – yet you’ll never see a steak. 

I think this shift in visual culture to be more plant based is a part of the propaganda against meat, and I’m trying to do whatever I can to change it, by making it beautiful again. 


2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

My diet growing up was full of rice, pasta, and grains. I’ve had bread with pretty much every meal. processed foods were everywhere with treats and sweets. To try and be healthy I spent a few years mostly vegan/vegetarian, though I’d also ‘cheat’ a lot on the diet by going to supermarkets and buying processed carbs.

I could eat two pints of ice cream with some gummy bears instead of a real meal. I didn’t cook for myself or knew how to make a tasty meal until my mid 20’s. I also worked in the food industry in my teens and early twenties and would just eat at work and take leftovers home.

I got more and more unwell as time passed yet didn’t connect it to diet for the longest time.


3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I’d get extremely ill at least twice a year with a bacterial or viral infection. I’ve always had hormonal issues had quite bad PCOS. I had IBS and was later diagnosed with Crohn’s, after a flair of gastritis. I’ve always had joint pains and swelling in my joints. I suffered from migraines and was depressed and lazy, lacking all motivation.

About 5 years ago I got into a very toxic relationship that caused me a great deal of stress, and the majority of my issues got worse during that time. I was on an extremely restrictive diet and lost a lot of weight quite rapidly which led to me developing a binge eating disorder. I was very unhappy and had brain fog – I felt I wasn’t able to think at the same speed as before, processing words or remembering things became rather difficult.

I was desperate to find some way to stop the binge cravings and through reading online found the keto diet and decided to try it.

I was on keto for about a year and a half and many of the issues I was struggling with got much better, but weren’t gone. The migraines decreased in frequency, my joints weren’t hurting as much, my digestions was a bit more stable yet the binge eating persisted and I felt completely out of control, and each episode brought all the symptoms back.

I started going to doctors who kept sending me to other doctors and each test made them order more tests. My bloodwork came back a mess: I’ve had rheumatoid factor come back positive, inflammatory markers were very high, my thyroid antibodies were extremely elevated, and the thyroid hormones were low, and my calprotectin was over 700 when it should be below 40.

I was put on thyroid meds and steroids, PPI’s and a few other pills with no helps – my wellbeing and quality of life decreased to such a level I got desperate. This is when I started to dive into the literature and research how to ‘fix’ myself. After listening to podcasts with Dr. Shawn baker and Mikhaila Peterson and put myself on a carnivore diet for “3-4 weeks max” only it lasted over 3 years and I’m never going back.


4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I started the diet around July 2017. It took a lot of personal experimentation and data collection until I found what works best for me. I think this is probably the case with most people who start trying to resolve multiple issues. I started by cutting out of plant foods yet still including pork, dairy, eggs and chicken. Over time I realised pork and chicken aren’t good for me, and milk products have to be raw and fermented. I only eat pastured eggs.

Nowadays I eat beef, lamb, venison, goat, organ meats and sea food. I live in a small town in the UK and have an amazing family farm that raises all the previously mentioned animals and at least 6-7 kinds of poultry so variety is never a problem, yet still find myself sticking to the same meals over and over.

Since now I’m trying to lose some fat, I eat two meals a day, about 300-450g of meat per meal depending on how lean it is, and use beef tallow, goats’ butter or ghee to cook with. In the last two months I’ve also been adding some non-sweet fruit, vegetables, eggs and some fermented dairy with no adverse reactions. About 85-95% of my calories are coming from meat and animal products.

My favourites are all the various cuts from the rib area, beef tongue, lamb chops and salmon.

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


Within the first few weeks my digestion got much better and became regular. IBS and Crohn’s were gone within about two months at most, my sleep improved, my PCOS normalised and I started getting my period again, my joints became less inflamed, walking and then going back to exercising became easier. I was off all steroids and PPI’s within less than 8 weeks.

After a year on the diet my thyroid antibodies were back to normal, yet my thyroid levels themselves were low, so I was still medicated for it. Two years after starting the carnivore diet I was able to get off all thyroid meds as well.

My body composition improved and I was able to gain and maintain muscle, increase my bone density and get rid of my brain fog and all mental health issues. No migraines, no weird aches and pains.

On the carnivore diet I feel calm, happy, content, a lot less agitated, I’m never anxious and can handle stress very well. It’s as if this way of eating was a facilitator of internal zen.


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

It did require a lot of patience, consistency, tracking, and trial and error to finally find true health. I had to do a lot of experimentation with my food to figure out pork and chicken weren’t good for me, to figure out that if I overeat I have issues even if I’m only eating foods I normally do very well with. I had some issues with histamines which took experimenting and tracking to figure out, I had to experiment with my fat to protein ratio to find what I do best with. The Crohn’s and the steroids depleted a lot of my vitamins and minerals some of which I had to supplement. My progress wasn’t always linear and was made much slower by the fact that I also battelled the binge eating craving despite being fully carnivore. It helped make the binge eating more manageable, yet I wasn’t truly recovered and it was extremely discouraging hearing experts on podcasts time after time state “you can’t overeat on steak and eggs” because I was living proof you very much can and that no matter how much eliminate – even the excess of good foods can lead to problems or prevent healing.

It wasn’t until I added stearic acid to my cooking fats (a la Brad Marshall) that I saw the cravings diminish until they were completely gone.

It was also harder on my social life with regard to eating out and eating with people, but I made it work and my real friends/family don’t mind it and are used to it by now.


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


I love exercise. I do resistance training. I used to work out 3-4 times a week and do long gym sessions, yet this year I transitioned more into home workouts and invested in resistance bands, kettlebells and a cast iron dumbbell set. I now do shorter, more intense functional training.

I recover very well from my workouts; I am very strong and find building muscle relatively easy.


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

This is an extremely powerful intervention that can change your life and health for the better, however it’s not magic. You may still have issues that other people in the community say cleared for them within 3 days, and it can be very discouraging and lead to a feeling of being broken, but it just takes dedication.

Every change has a transitional period where things feel unfamiliar or strange and you miss your old ways but remembering why you’re doing it helps so much. You can get used to anything and anything can seem normal, no matter how foreign the idea was when you heard it first. If your current normal is inflamed, in pain, struggling to think clearly or get motivated – carnivore will 100% help. It’s an extremely simple diet which isn’t easy to implement but you overcome the initial hurdles it’s worth it.


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

I think that in the future more and more doctors will use it as a healing tool for their patients, which will help legitimize it in the eyes of the public.

This way of eating is essentially fighting the way in which big parts of our society and economy are founded on, so there will be resistance and pushback throughout the way. I do believe that evidence speak for themselves and the voices of people in the community are reaching larger audiences now. There are doctors educating other doctors on low carb and carnivore as treatment modalities which means it’s growing. The obesity and chronic disease epidemic took decades to develop and I think that we now have the power of the internet to speed up the timeline in which carnivore will grow. I hope that by then the cost of entry and price of meat won’t be a limiting factor for population in poor areas which arguably need this diet more than others.


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


For me the carnivore diet opened up so many things. I did a butchery class, went to live and volunteer on a farm for 6 weeks, started making meat based art, did a nutrition certification and am a much better and more resilient person for having been through all of this.
 
I am on instagram as @healthy.craft and am about to launch a new store for my meat-based art on nosetotail.org, in collaboration with the maker of the ‘Food Lies’ film, Brian Sanders.

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 Aline

Interview with Aline

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi I’m Aline aka Karnivorgirl. I’m a Swiss girl living in Nevada, USA. 

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

When I was 10 years old I decided to become a vegetarian (luckily not vegan!!!). At 21 it didn’t feel right anymore and my body started to crave meat. 

In 2014 I started getting into bodybuilding and of course started with a typical bodybuilding diet. Turkey, white rice, asparagus. Once a week I usually had a cheat day where I stuffed myself full of carbs. I just ate as much as I wanted when I wanted and whatever I wanted. Every time I got sick, overate and felt bad for at least two days. 

I got really sick in 2015. Chronic Mono, Hashimoto, CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), IBS, Panic Attacks, Depression… ended up in the ER twice. In 2016 I got forced to a restrictive diet by my neurologist. I switched to keto fairly soon. 

I was all about numbers while being Keto. Dirty Keto! As long as I was in my numbers and it didn’t contain gluten and tomatoes, I was happy. I had cheat days where I just stuffed my belly with tons of “healthy” keto sweets and bacon. 

I have an eating disorder that probably started when I was 16 and my obsession with food got crazier and crazier. I had (still do, didn’t delete them) lists on my phone with all different kinds of “healthy” keto sweets with all the different flavors there are. Because I needed to try every single one of them. There are also lists where I wrote down how I ate every single one. Microwaved, frozen, with heavy whipping cream, with whipped heavy whipping cream, wrapped in bacon, with butter,…. I call it food OCD. 

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

Keto worked pretty good for a while for me. But I fell off every time a depression attack hit me. It started happening more often and the attacks last up to 2 weeks instead of just 1-3 days. Also the depressions came out of nowhere and vanished just as suddenly. 

November 2019 again I had such a bad attack. Like always I said I can’t anymore. I need to change something. This time I knew I need to completely change something. My friend told me about the carnivore diet about 2 years prior and for some reason out of nowhere I remembered it and knew that’s it! Even before I started I knew that’s what I have to do!

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

First I used it as an elimination diet and figured out very quickly I don’t do well with dairy especially cheese. After 30 days just ribeye salt and water I started reintroducing different things again but I kept having issues. I went back to just beef: steak, ground and very bloody roast. 

I realized I need to give my body more time to heal! Also the more different foods I’m able to eat the more my eating disorder reappears. I’ll start making lists again with all the different meats and egg variations I could combine and I’m getting overwhelmed and obsessed again. 

Also I figured out I’m always addicted to something. From Fruits, cereals, carbs, protein bars, keto sweets, bacon, heavy whipping cream, cheese to now fat. 

What works for me the best at the moment is: eating very lean. I can eat a lot more while still not being too high in calories. I tend to overeat if I eat delicious fatty meats cuz it’s just so good. But I also do allow myself days where I eat more fattier cuts because sometimes my body demands it. 

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

So many. But I soon figured out unfortunately I’m not one of those lucky ones where carnivore just cured everything. I still had lots of problems while being carnivore. BUT everything was sooooo much worse when I wasn’t carnivore! At least when I was binge eating it was just on meat and my ibs and anxiety attacks were much less severe. 

Now I’m doing amazing! Even tho I’m still having some issues. Most times I’m actually able to listen to my body. This wasn’t possible on any other lifestyle. But I have to say I’m also taking a looooot of supplements. I guess my brain is just a bit wired differently. For me it’s a combination of the right supplements and being a currently very strict carnivore. And very slowly I keep adding more variety to my meals. 

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

My fridge is basically empty but I never have enough freezer space. 

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

I’d say I’m a carnivore athlete. Lol. I do weight lifting, pole fitness, MMA, Dancing, weapons training, hiking, cardio on the elliptical and basically whatever I can get my hands on. 

Beef Liver!!! Best preworkout ever!!! I get my best workouts with just 15-20g of beef liver rolled up in a very thin tiny slice of fatty meat. Gives me so much energy! I also like working out fasted but the beef liver before a hard training is the absolute best!

If you don’t like liver don’t look at it as food. Look at it as a supplement / medicine!

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

Everybody’s body and brain are different and you need to find out what works best for you! 

But, you should definitely give carnivore a try. I’m convinced some form of carnivore is best for everyone. You just gotta figure out what form. And don’t forget there’s an adaption phase. Your body needs time to get rid of all the toxins and gets accustomed to a different lifestyle. Also your body keeps changing. Something that might have worked for you for a while suddenly won’t work anymore. Even on carnivore. 

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

I hope not. I don’t think carnivore should be used as a diet. Carnivore should be used as a lifestyle. And I hope it won’t become just the mainstream lifestyle. I hope it’ll just be the normal lifestyle that everyone is living in their own way that works best for them. 

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

Everything happens for a reason! Never give up! NEVER!

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Ralph

Interview with Ralph

1) Introduce yourself. 


My name is Ralph Ospina. I’m a Physical Therapist Assistant at Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital in Athens, GA. I treat individuals who have been hospitalized for a variety of conditions or procedures and my main purpose is to help improve their strength/endurance/balance and overall function so that they can mobilize as independently and safely as possible. I am a martial artist and have studied/practiced a variety of arts when I competed briefly in amateur MMA, but I’m most proficient at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in which I hold a black belt under Adam and Rory Singer out of Straight Blast Gym Athens. 

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.


I have followed different nutrition protocols and have been very mindful about my diet for about 13 years, although it has taken me some time to find what truly works for me. Before becoming mindful about my diet, I ate a typical standard American diet full of ultra-processed food. I got up to about 200 lbs (I’m 5’6″ so that didn’t work well from a proportional standpoint…) But over the last 13 years I have tried everything from the awful US dietary guidelines, the “bro bodybuilder” diet of chicken and broccoli, vegetarian (very, very briefly), and I’ve tried traditional/targeted/cyclical ketogenic. My approach prior to starting Carnivore was keto with a very plant-based approach, although I still ate about 50% of my diet from animal foods. 

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I first heard of Carnivore about 1 year ago but didn’t actually start it until late April or early May of this year. I have had some issues with IBS for the last 3-4 years and keto had given me the most relief at that time. I still had several symptoms that I had learned how to live with, and I figured this was as good as it was going to get. I researched carnivore for a bit, but what got me to take the plunge was a podcast in which I heard Robb Wolf discuss how he used a Carnivore-ish approach to improving some nasty gut issues he was having from a recent bug he caught sometime after he moved to Texas. His symptoms seemed similar enough to mine, and I figured I’d give it a try. Since then, I have fully embraced a nose-to-tail carnivore-ish approach to nutrition and I feel great! 


4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I eat 95% carnivore with a few non-carnivore foods that I tolerate well. I LOVE organ meats (except for kidney) and luckily, I have access to good quality meat from local farmers in my area and I have several friends who hunt and are very generous (I’m in the process of learning this skill now, but for now, I rely on good friends!). I stick to ruminant animals – mostly beef, venison, and lamb. I eat about 1lb of meat/day and I will pick fattier vs lean cuts based on my activity level (at least 1:1 and up to 2:1 fat to protein ratio). I take an electrolyte supplement and so far my favourite is LMNT.  As far as “non-Carnivore” foods, I can tolerate and enjoy avocados, cucumber, berries, and I LOVE Ketobricks. Oh, and I have absolutely no ties with these companies, they are just the products that I personally like. 


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

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). 


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

There was a short period of time where my digestion had to adjust to the lack of veggies and other fiber sources – let’s just say I had a similar experience to Joe Rogan. That resolved pretty quickly though, and I haven’t felt this good consistently since I started having my IBS symptoms. I was used to restrictive diets from my experience with weight cutting and I honestly like having a regimen/protocol to follow. It keeps me on track. 


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

I exercise regularly. I have been practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for about 13 years now and it’s my passion. Right now, I’m only able to train about 3x/week ~1 hour each, which is much less than I was training prior to the pandemic, but it’s better than no jiu jitsu! I also strength train 3x/week and my job is very active as well. I don’t do any extra cardio aside from long distance walks with a weighted back-pack. 

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

If this is something you’ve been thinking about doing, then go for it. Setbacks aren’t failures – they are opportunities to adjust and find out what truly works for you. It’s easy to get discouraged, but if you change your perspective, it’s easier to adhere. I’ve done better since I started looking at this as a fun “n=1” experiment, instead of putting pressure on myself about reaching a weight on a scale or a certain body composition. If you get healthy, everything else will work itself out. Also, always be open minded – the goal is to learn and find the truth, not to be right. 

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

It’s hard to say. There are a lot of people who are still terrified of red meat, fat, and meat-based diets in general. I think it will continue to grow as people get results. Keto was unheard of 5 years ago in the mainstream. People thought I was crazy for eating under 30g of carbs/day and nobody had really heard of it. Now keto is everywhere. So, you never know. I hope more clinicians start taking interest in this topic. 

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

My coaches frequently say, “Always be a white belt.” What they mean is, always be a student. Be curious to learn new things everyday, this way you’re always in a state of growth. The moment you think you have all of the answers you stop learning. It can be easy to get caught up in routine and to become static. Find mentors or people to learn from and look up to. 

You can follow me on instagram @ralph_ospina (I need to think of something more creative) – I’m no expert by any means, but I LOVE talking about this stuff.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Rashad

Interview with Rashad

Introduce Yourself.

My name is Rashad Lavelle. I have been eating Carnivore since November of 2019. My mission is to debunk lies that are targeted towards the Carnivore diet as well as the aspect of consuming red meat.

How did you eat before Carnivore.

Before Carnivore I was a strict plant based Vegan diet for 2 years. Most of the diet was low fat and high carbs. Before the vegan was a typical standard American diet.  I only started to eat vegan because of the severe gout issues that I was experiencing at a young age. The doctors told me that I had to stay away form Red Meat and certain fishes.

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I eventually had to quit the Vegan diet, because of the severe gut issues such as bloating, and I also had high blood pressure of 160/110 on this diet, as well as brain fog. I heard of Carnivore from the Joe Rogan Podcast when he interviewed Jordan Peterson. This began my research on ancestral eating and the many health benefits that they were experiencing.

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

Through the weekdays, I am pretty much 100% Carnivore, starting with eggs and a protein of either sausage or bacon. This is usually around 12ish. The 2nd meal is either some type of steak, ground beef, or salmon. For the weekends I am about 85% carnivore and I add a few berries or maybe a bell pepper to my egg scramble. I stay away from dairy as much as possible though, just because I am lactose intolerant.

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

The biggest benefit is gout being in remission since I started. I went against what all the doctors were saying. I used to have a gout flare up at least once per month. It seems like a miracle. The other major benefits are the gut issues. No more bloating. The bloating was so horrible, that I thought I had a severe case of IBS. In reality, I just couldn’t digest beans and legumes. Mental Clarity is back, and I have noticed a spike in libido.

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

Social influence can be a problem when I am around gatherings. Sometimes the temptations are there with other foods that I used to participate in. The first few weeks of Carnivore diet was some constipation, but this went away as I progressed.

IMG_9915

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

I exercise at least 3 x’s per week with weights at the gym or either through the Beach Body on Demand. But daily is biking riding in the mornings or evenings. This has become easy, because I always take my dogs biking riding around the neighborhood for a quick cardio.

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

Get plenty of knowledge about the diet, and myths, before jumping in full force. Purchase books and find a mentor that you can ask plenty of questions. The reason is because there is a lot of misinformation on the media as well as vegan propaganda that may confuse you or discourage you. A lot of misinformation will stir up fear.

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

Food has become political and it seems to be a never-ending battle. Accepting Carnivore in mainstream is pretty much telling the government (with their Food Pyramid), that they were wrong. Nobody likes to be wrong.

The Carnivore movement is definitely growing and I do have hope that it will be accepted, but it’s a battle between us and the Sugar & Food industry.

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

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Kristy

Interview with Kristy

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Kristy Sheppard, I live in Ottawa, Canada. I’m a mother of 2 amazing teenagers.  I have always been passionate about health and fitness and I always strive to be the best version of myself.

2) How did you eat before carnivore?

I always ate consciously and was careful of what I ate, I have tried so many different “diets”.  Keto, fasting 72 hours a week to alternate day fasting, whole foods, carb cycling,  you name it I have tried it to optimize my health and I never quite felt like I was on the right path and never felt really good.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

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.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I’m strict carnivore 7 days a week which means for me I consume only lean steak and eggs, water and coffee. I start my day with coffee and eggs, steak post workout (midday), steak and eggs complete my day. I’m completely full and satisfied and I never feel the need for eating other foods. I track my macros and aim for 60% fats and 40% proteins for me this works keeping my energy up and losing consistently. I use MCT oil to balance out my ratios if needed.

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

Within a few days on this way of eating I felt way more energetic, workouts became easier, very quick recovery, my joint pain from my autoimmune issues have literally vanished, no more headaches, no cravings, and I feel mentally more clear and focused. I find this way of eating is so easy, easy to plan and travel with. Keeping it this simple has been the key to my success. I don’t need to read labels, or count calories.

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

I honestly cannot think of any negatives I experienced , I was already eating a lower carb diet so I didn’t get the headaches or the detox type symptoms others mentioned when starting the program. It was a really easy transition for me to eat this way and is super easy to follow.

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

I do exercise daily, I have always done circuit style training , high reps lower weight and have recently added in cardio on a daily basis. I find my recovery is amazing when you refuel your body post workout with a steak!

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 say just start! It’s so easy to prepare for, steak and eggs is a great start. I actually have had many ask how to get started and what to eat that I have created a easy start guide that is downloadable from my Instagram page @thecarnivorechronicles. It is a great document that gets you on this way of eating without all the guesswork.

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

As being part of a current Harvard Carnivore Study I believe we are finally getting the science needed behind it to be accepted as a mainstream way of eating.

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

I am always excited to share this way of eating with others and watch how their health improves in such a short time! I do offer coaching and a downloadable easy start guide to help people transform their health and bodies! You can find me on Instagram @thecarnivorechronicles

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Rose

Interview with Rose

Introduce Yourself.

“Would you rather be right? Or happy?” This was the question I had to ask myself when I made the transition to the Carnivore diet 3 and a half years ago. My name is Rose, I’m 35 years old and I am an autoimmune warrior of over 10 years. I have fibromyalgia, celiacs and arthritis. Luckily I also have an answer to my earlier question that has given me an extraordinary improvement in my quality of life.

How did you eat before Carnivore.

My diet before going Carnivore was full of extreme choices. I became vegan when I was 14, not a junk food vegan but whole food based “super food” obsessed vegan. Autoimmune conditions run in my family and I thought if I adopted an “ultra healthy” way of eating and avoided modern medicine I could avoid developing an autoimmune condition of my own. Unfortunately I was wrong, as I got older I developed many symptoms we now relate to plant intolerances and inflammatory reactions. I tried many different extreme versions of elimination plant based diets over over the next 11 years. I spent thousands of dollars on supplements and detoxes and natural treatments to cure my reactions, not understanding the reactions were directly related to what I was eating. It didn’t make sense to me at the time…because I was “doing everything right”. Finally by the time I was in my late 20s I was beat down. None of my choices were providing lasting relief, so I gave up and adopted the SAD diet. I felt like at least if I was in pain I could enjoy a cupcake! Of course that choice only inflicted further harm to my sensitive system, and I became very sick. That health bottom led me to try Keto and opened my mind to Carnivore.

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I always had an intuitive sense there must be a way of eating that could optimize health. It seemed rather sensible to me that eating less processed foods might give ones health an advantage. I just happened to be very wrong about my choice of unprocessed food for a long time. Trying Carnivore for me was like grasping a life raft right before going under. My health was eroding and my metabolic system was clearly out of whack. Beyond that depression and anxiety I had been dealing with since I was a teenager was starting to really make coping with my physical experience difficult. I became very open to any change that might give me any way out of that cycle. Thank goodness!

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I personally approach Carnivore like its an adventure. I like learning, about biology, about hunting and field-dressing/butchering, about different cultures, about animal husbandry and my role in it as a Carnivore. As a vegan I did the same thing, I read a great deal about Biodynamic farming and rotation farming during that phase of my life. I understood animals had a part to play in sustainable farming. But I’m happy now to have a healthier relationship with the circle of life which I believe is a great advantage to life and a greater understanding of how much respect I have for food that heals me and the stewards of that care take that cycle.

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

Hmmmm it might seem unbelievable if I list all the benefits I’ve experienced since adopting Carnivore, but I will do my best. Firstly relief from constant gastric discomfort, colitis, ibs, intermittent constipation, bloat and interstitial cystitis. Manageable monthly cycles instead of debilitating cramps. Reliable muscle strength and relief from chronic muscle exhaustion and cramping. Full range of motion without pain in my hands and other joints affected by arthritis. Relief from myofascial pain/ nerve pain in trigger points. A reliable reduction in my inflammatory response overall. Much more energy. Reduction in my overall anxiety and depression. Balanced endocrine hormones. More joy. More desire to be active and seek out challenging physical activity. More hopeful mental outlook. Better memory, focus and overall mental clarity. Clear, younger looking skin and healthier hair. Weight loss over all but more importantly dramatic body composition shifts without much effort. I’ll stop there!

PicsArt_05-26-03.36.39

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

Any negatives of the Carnivore diet that I’ve noticed don’t really have so much to do with the diet so much as how practicing the diet outside of the home can impact me personally. I’m still very sensitive to polyunsaturated fats like canola or soy oil, so if I eat out and my burger or steak gets contaminated that can really negatively impact me. How diligent I have to be can be annoying to waitstaff and awkward socially. But its a small price for health. They don’t have to be in my body. I have noticed the diet does illicit strong reactions from people. Far more frequently than when I was vegan, I have had to stand my ground with people who care about me who want me to eat a few veggies “to make them feel better”… but again they don’t have to live in my body. I’ve learned to have firmer boundaries about that kind of exchange about my food. Those are negatives of perception, not that diet itself. Honestly I can’t think of any!

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

I do exercise on Carnivore. It’s one of the many joys of the lifestyle to me. Because I have much more available energy and the stress of activity doesn’t send me into a flare straight away I can actually enjoy being active. I can freely follow the natural impulse to move and build strength. I dance, I love resistance training, plyometrics and hiking.

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

Meat is not bad for you. It doesn’t make you a bad person to eat it. And it doesn’t make you a bad person to prioritize your health by eating what will optimize it. Get to know a rancher or farmer through a meat CSA or farmers market if you feel any shame about eating animals. Learn about regenerative agriculture if your worried about the environment. Otherwise… dive in! Let the diet do what it does best by breaking the carb/sugar addiction. Eat till you’re full! Your pallet will change naturally, just wait and see!

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

Gosh its hard to say if it will go mainstream. I think as more people catch on to regenerative agriculture it might be possible. I hope so. I think with the hard work of people like Shawn Baker, Nina Teicholz, Peter Ballerstedt to name just a few Carnivore luminaries anything is possible.

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

Just try it for 30 days. Seriously. And come see me over on MeatRX.com where there is heaps of research and support available. I just recently became a coach. I will be debuting a cooking channel called “Rose’s Recipes” on Youtube later in June and You can also find me on instagram at www.instagram.com/wild_bk_alchemy

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 Matthew

Interview with Matthew

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Matthew, I live in the UK, I’m 22, I work full time and I have a big interest in nutrition.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Before carnivore i was vegan/plantbased for 6 years, the last 6 months I ate a whole foods plant based diet, before that I experimented with basically every vegan diet there is (vegan keto/high carb low fat/fruit only/intermittent fasting/ raw til 4 etc)

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I started carnivore because I started to learn about the health benefits, my main goal was to help my anxiety and depression, also my previous plant based diet wasn’t working for me.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

Depending on the time of the year depends what I eat, in winter I eat pretty much a 100% animal based diet, whereas in the summer I’ll incorporate some in season fruit (if my body accepts it) but I mainly eat steak, beef, eggs, bacon, some organ meats, and rarely some dairy.

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

My mental health massively improved after just 2 weeks on this diet, i no longer felt depressed or anxious, it was like something just lifted me, it was a massive weight off my shoulders, I was so happy and relieved, I had been battling mental health for many years. I also got rid of anemia, inflammation and IBS and I lost some weight. Them issues were never why I started, they were just added bonuses. I had a huge gut for the last 2/3 years that wouldn’t go away no matter what, I had skinny arms and legs but my belly was so inflamed and bloated nothing helped until I went carnivore. Another benefit was it helped my sugar cravings, it was so much easier to get off sugar while carnivore.

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

The only negative I can think of is the transition, from whatever diet to carnivore can be some what difficult, all my life I’ve consumed many carbs just like most people, and to try and go to low/zero carb can be hard but once your body is fat adapted it’s amazing and so worth it.

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

I do light exercise a couple times a week (walk/jog/bicycle) and lift weights maybe once a week. One big benefits I’ve noticed is my strength, I can lift much more weight now.

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

You’ve just got to go for it, once your body gets fat adapted it will be easy, not like other diets you need “cheat meals” you’re always satisfied with no cravings, your life will improve in every single way, my advice is make sure you consume enough fat. Every single person I know who went carnivore, never went back, for the simple fact it WORKS.

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

Probably not, plant foods are being pushed everywhere. Plant based diets are getting more popular.

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

My instagram is meatandhealth if you want to follow me, I answer all DM’s if you have any questions. And I would like to add, if anybody is thinking about starting this diet, try to get good quality meats, it’s okay if not but the better the quality the better you’ll feel.
