Carnivore Diet success stories with Nicola

Interview with Nicola

Introduction yourself 

Hey, my name is Nicola Lewis. I am a 28-year-old who works in a A&E department in the UK, I have two fur babies (cats) called Alan and Molly! So far in my journey I have lost 105lbs with a ketogenic and carnivore lifestyle, I am a meat lover. 

How did you eat before Carnivore. 

Before carnivore I was living the ketogenic lifestyle from 2018 till November 2020 when I went carnivore. 

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

The reason I started carnivore was because I’d still overeat on keto especially the keto treats and I wanted to get rid of them cravings, don’t get me wrong I loved keto but I feel so much better doing carnivore.

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I approached the carnivore diet at first by going basic eating meat, eggs and dairy. 

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet. 

My benefits since being carnivore are zero bloating, clear skin, I have battled my cravings and I have more energy! 

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

Honestly, I can’t think of any negatives. 

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

I have a very active job, so I am on my feet a lot anyway walking around but exercising at the gym no, I haven’t really been to the gym, I just do a lot of walking. 

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 getting rid of all temptations in the house, for the first month eat meat when you’re hungry and keep it basic. 

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

I would like to think it would be in time, but I am unsure I will. 

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

I would love people to just try it and see how they feel and the benefits, even if it is for 30 days there is lots of support out there and information.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Christopher

Interview with Christopher

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Christopher Nance aka Carnivorous Beast, I am 32 years old from Cornwall, UK. I am currently a Corporal in the Royal Air Force.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I used to eat the typical bodybuilding diet, low fat, high carb, lots of sugar laden protein shakes, pastas, breads and lots of lean meat, I then went paleo/keto for a short period before going Carnivore. 

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

It was actually my partner who introduced me to Carnivore, I initially disregarded it but I decided why not give it a go for a month and see how it goes, now 11 months down the road I’m still Carnivore 

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I initially started Carnivore eating all meat, eggs and dairy, after about 4 months I decided to eliminate dairy as I was still getting skin issues, as soon as I eliminated dairy my skin issues reduced dramatically 

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

Benefits I have seen is mental clarity, I had suffered with mental health issues and I am now completely off any medication, I have also been able to read 15 books so far this year (I could barely read 1 book a year in previous years). I also dropped a lot of body fat starting at 95kg, I am currently 78.2kg, I also feel very energetic and overall sleep better, my skin also has improved – I used to have eczema but no longer have it.

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


The biggest negative is fitting it in an everyday life, its difficult to eat out at restaurants or someone’s home. Also having to constantly defend my diet to people stuck in the conventional way of thinking 

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


I exercise 5-6 times a week I have had a varied gym background coming from Powerlifting to Strongman to strength training and I am now focusing on bodybuilding, my workouts are usually Weightlifting with occasional cardio.

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


Make sure you are ready for it, it’s difficult to come from a standard Western diet with high sugar processed foods to completely eliminating them, I always recommend going paleo first to get used to eating real food then trying keto to become fat adapted and then going Carnivore 

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


My hope is that it would but I just don’t see it happening, unlike Vegan diets which can be mass produced and profitable for big brands meats are difficult to heavily manufacture.

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

Carnivore has been great for me and I stand by it but I recognise it isn’t for everyone, I also highly recommend Paleo and Keto. I am on YouTube as Carnivorous Beast and on Instagram as @carnivorousbeast

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Leigh

Interview with Leigh

1) Introduce Yourself.

My name is Leigh Roberts.I am 24 years old. I’m a stay at home mother to two young children under the age of Two! My hobbies include cooking, baking, swimming, cycling, and playing squash.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

Last year, I was pregnant with my daughter who is now 10 months old. She was predicted to be a very small baby when born. This was a result of suffering from really bad hyperemesis in the first half of my pregnancy which had left me in hospital on several drips. As soon as i was able to eat again, I ate it all! It had worked, She was born a decent 8lb 1oz.

I gained a huge amount of weight from eating so much and thought that I would lose it all during breastfeeding but that didn’t happen. I was still eating everything I could get my hands on and downing calorie shakes to boost my milk supply. I stopped breastfeeding at 11 weeks. (This was not weight related in anyway)

I then decided to do keto but I found macro counting absolutely tedious. I hated constanly counting macros and trying to figure out how much of everything I should eat, I lasted a little while but around Christmas, I gave up and let myself indulge with the family

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I wondered if I was able to have zero carbs, no more eating vegetables as I’ve always been a huge meat lover. I googled it and came across Carnivore. I didn’t find much information apart from the negative reviews and sites calling it a fad diet, I wanted to see the other side and so I decided to join several groups on Facebook and check out what the real Carnivores was saying and how it benefits them! I ended up starting on new years day!

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

At the beginning, I wasn’t very strict about it, I was drinking drinks containing artificial sweeteners, I was eating tons of dairy and drinking spirits, I was getting the results that I hoped for. On my birthday (which is mid march), I accidentally drank a coke cherry that I wrongly assumed was zero sugar with rum and I had the worse stomach pains, the next three days was painful and I broke out in terrible acne, I then realised that I need to be more careful with what I’m eating. I soon moved on to drinking just water and I decided to cut out the cheese and cream which I believe was also holding me back. I now eat Beef, Seafood, Eggs, Fish and salt.

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

The major one has been weightloss! It was the original reason for starting carnivore and it actually worked! I started off as 68kg which is overweight for my height and I am now a healthy 55kgs!

Another benefit has been the change in my skin and hair. My skin is a lot clearer and after 10 years of acne, its a huge relief! I have tried all sorts of acne treatments for my skin from over the counter treatments, prescription treatments and even antibiotics for 3 years. None of these worked. If only my teenage self knew about carnivore!

My hair is so thick now! I actually recently shaved it off because I want to grow it out natural and undyed. So far it’s thicker than ever and I cannot wait to see how it looks when it is long again!

IMG_9224

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

The negatives for me personally would be the carb cravings. The rest of my family are not carnivore, the arent even close. There is always junk food in the house and it does get hard to resist but then I think about that diet coke and cringe, there’s no way that I would put up with 3 days of pain for a custard pastry! 😉

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

I don’t exercise anymore than I usually would but I have found that the exercise that I do is A LOT easier than how it was before, I have more energy and endurance! I don’t know if that’s carnivore related, weightloss related or both but it definitely makes exercise more fun and rewarding!

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, seriously, just try it for a month and see how you feel! You will never know if it’s right for you if dont take that leap!

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

No. And that’s okay!

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

I am on instagram @Leighdoescarnivore. If you are thinking of doing carnivore or you have any questions, please just send me a message! I will always try and help you out and offer honest advice.

I also want to add that not everyone suffers from diarrhoea at the beginning of doing carnivore. I didn’t, I poop great!

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories -with Megan

Interview with Megan

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi! My name is Megan, I’m an Aerospace Engineering student from the UK, currently living in the Netherlands. I’ve struggled with weight my whole life and have been trying to lose weight since I can remember. The past couple of years, this has transformed into an effort to get healthy, not just lighter, as I’ve learned so much more about gut health, hormones, and nutrition.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I come from a family that loves to cook. We lived to eat, not ate to live. I started Keto Summer 2018 after spending the year in the US and eating everything! Around the same time, I found out I was celiac so already had to cut out gluten anyway. I was losing weight on keto but seemed to be stalling and also had other issues like eczema that weren’t getting better.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I’d heard a lot about carnivore healing gut issues. I have celiac disease and years of gut damage from eating gluten had caused me to develop intolerances to other foods like eggs and avocados which I wanted to be able to eat again so I’d been considering trying carnivore for a while. I naturally became more carnivore last year as my keto meals became more simple (meat with some kind of side vegetable) so I figured I might as well take the small jump to carnivore and try it out.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I intermittent fast and then usually eat two meals each day. I mostly eat whatever is on offer in the supermarket and whatever I can get cheap: ground beef, pork belly, etc. I also drink coffee – black during my fasting window and with heavy cream after that. I’ve started to incorporate more nose-to-tail recently to make my diet more nutrient-dense, sustainable, and to save money.

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

I can tolerate eggs a lot more now which I am very happy about. I love eggs. I’ve also managed to lose weight (40+ pounds) and body fat, which I have struggled with my whole life and also struggled to do after a while on Keto. My skin and sleep are also the best they have been for years.

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

Social events can be difficult when based around food. Luckily I can blame a lot on allergies. But I’ve actually grown to love questions about my way of eating and had some very interesting conversations because of it.

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

I do Jiu Jitsu a few times a week and cycle 1 hour every day to and from work. Jiu Jitsu has really helped me to de-stress after work and the community is great too. I’ve really appreciated this since moving to another country on my own.

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

Since I gradually transitioned from low carb to carnivore, I seemed to skip a lot of the negative side effects people often mention at the beginning of carnivore so maybe a more gradual transition would be better for people worried about this. And give it at least a few months. If you’ve had years of gut damage, you can’t expect it to be gone in a few weeks.

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

A lot of people I’ve talked to have expressed concern with the long term effects of the carnivore diet so hopefully as time goes on, people will see it as a more sustainable, healthy way of eating. But I think this is also very dependent on people wanting to take control of their own health and do their own research/experiments rather than listen to misinformed, outdated guidelines.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Kimberly

Interview with Kimberly

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hello! My name is Kimberly Brooke. I am a Primal Health Coach, Yoga teacher, ELDOA practitioner, and CrossFit Coach, who specializes in optimal health and wellness for women.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I came from a high-carb diet! For the first 25 years of my life, I ate the Standard American Diet. Being from the South, it consisted of a lot of potatoes, corn, bread, meat, along with homemade sugary dessert treats (like pies, cobblers, cookies), and Blue Bell ice cream!

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

That’s a bit of a story… I went to college to play volleyball in 2004 and really hurt my knee, as so many young women in collegiate sports do. I became almost sedentary, but didn’t have the knowledge or anyone to help me change the way I ate. I was depressed, lonely, and homesick in college, and I began self-medicating with food. Very quickly, I ballooned and gained about 85 pounds. I weighed 260 pounds on my 20th birthday and absolutely hated myself.

After several years of yo-yo dieting, starving myself, running countless miles on the treadmill, and trying everything from Atkins to South Beach to Jenny Craig, I finally decided that my body just “wanted to be heavy,” since nothing would keep the weight off. I was in denial about my binge eating and carb addiction.

In 2010, a friend introduced me to Primal eating through Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint program, and I was able to drop about 65 pounds by removing sugar, grains, alcohol, and refined seed oils from my diet. I began noticing that I would have insane bloat almost immediately after eating any meal and would never feel satisfied. I always reached for seconds and sometimes thirds… It was like there was a hole inside me that I was trying (unsuccessfully) to fill with food. My weight would yo-yo back and forth between 180 and 200 pounds, but I believed so fully in the success I’d had at that time that I became certified in the Primal method in order to help other people break free of their sugar addiction.

It was Nov. 2018 when I stumbled across Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Kevin Stock, and the Carnivore Diet. I started looking into the anti-nutrients in fruits and vegetables, specifically regarding issues I was having. I literally could NOT believe that fruits and vegetables, the absolute bastions of healthy super foods, were causing me to gain weight, throwing my hormones off, continuing to keep me addicted to carbs, and causing my sugar cravings.

I presented this newfound information to my husband, who was immediately skeptical. After he read several articles and saw the anecdotal evidence of people like Kelly Hogan and Dr. Baker who had been doing Carnivore long-term, he decided we could give it a try, and we both jumped in cold turkey.

Within days, my bloating resolved, I lost 12 pounds in 10 days, and I felt incredible. While the Adaptation was a little rough on my husband and me, we got through it and HAVEN’T LOOKED BACK!!!

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

In our house, my husband and I eat similarly, but he is much more tolerant of things like seasonings (“flavor plants”) and can go off the diet without too much trouble. If I deviate, I experience near-instant bloating, headaches, and a general sense of malaise. It’s enough that it’s become self-perpetuating for me. My diet consists mostly of red meat (steak or ground beef), eggs, bacon, and butter.

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

Level energy, I can go hours and hours without eating and be totally fine (I have developed a natural 16:8 fasting pattern), I am as lean as I have ever been, and my strength gains are out of control. My cystic acne is gone, my hair and nails are thicker, and my skins feels softer and smoother. I’ve found that my unreasonable sugar cravings completely abated after a week, and I am totally satisfied by what I eat. My husband reports very similar improvements!

carni4

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

Honestly, nothing with the diet or nutrition… Interestingly, we’ve found that social gatherings can become quite difficult, especially when it comes to going out to restaurants. I have to be insanely careful when I order and insist on no seasoning on meat, no bread, no veggies, no sides… People look at me like I’ve grown another head. On the other hand, it’s showed me who my REAL friends are. They say they find my odd ordering style rather endearing now!

The only other negative is the unreal debates I’ve gotten in with friends and family. They seem concerned I’m going to kill myself, despite animal foods being the most bioavailable source of nutrients for a human. So far, it’s been well over a year and I show no signs of deterioration.

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

I do CrossFit three to four times a week and Yoga and meditation every day. Form weeks two to four, weeks when I was adapting to Carnivore, I was hardcore on the struggle bus during my workouts. Every day life was fine when it came to energy levels, but the moment I tried to lift or do anything involving endurance, I would crash. Just to get through the work outs, I would take every weight off the bar and still almost pass out before the end. It wasn’t until the end of the fourth week that I noticed my energy coming back, and now I absolutely coast through workouts and go even heavier than the workout calls for.

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

JUST DO IT. You’ll never be “ready.” There will never be a “right time.” We started the day before Thanksgiving and absolutely made it through eating turkey and prime rib. YOU CAN DO THIS!! I believe in you. ️ This is one of those things that, if you wait, you’ll wish you’d started six months ago!

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

As long as the FDA and Big Pharma have a say, absolutely not. It’s really unfortunate, but the way the system works now focuses on “sick care” rather than getting people well and healthy.

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

This way of eating is the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Truly, give it 60-90 days of honest, strict effort before saying it’s not for you. You can always add fruit and veggies back in!

You can find me on IG @carnivorekimberly.

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Kurt

Interview with Kurt

1) Introduce Yourself.

Karnivore Kurt (Kurt Yazici) –  Optimal Aligner | Carnivore Diet Expert | Entrepreneur

A successful entrepreneur, who’s companies have created more than $5M in sales in 2019.

His self-development journey began by climbing out of dark anxiety, healing long-standing gut issues and skin through the Carnivore Diet. Now focusing on optimally aligning to ancestral lifestyle teaching that incorporates the Carnivore Diet, movement, sun, sleep that are all optimized to give people the best performance and health.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore?

Clean, lower carb, paleo for nearly 10 years. Three years leading into Carnivore I was on a “Bulletproof Diet” with “Bulletproof Coffee” and Rhonda Patrick superfood smoothies. Eggs, bacon, butter, avocados and burgers were staples.

I ate a “balanced” “healthy” diet that included: kale, broccoli sprouts (I grew), spinach, almond butter, local honey, cacao nibs, flax seeds, blueberries, and cinnamon.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with?

Dr. Paul Saladino and I were friends that shared a common gym in Seattle. We worked out at the same times most days of the week. Together we stumbled across this way of eating, first him and then me weeks later after seeing and hearing him promote it.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet?

I eat a nose to tail balanced Carnivore Diet mainly of grass fed beef, fat and organs. Specifically I consume beef kidney 4-5x’s / week, beef liver 2-3x’s / week and mix up cuts of grass fed beef: my go to’s include chuck roast, shank, brisket with the occasional more premium steaks, strips, roasts.

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

The benefits are profound and far reaching. Gut issues that were chronic before have been completely eliminated. Anxiety likely linked with those has subsided. Skin, energy, strength, clarity, overall vitality all have drastically improved.

IMG_9980

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

Gut issues and nuances when first learning it. Those were a major challenge and it took me a while to really figure out which foods and how to best prepare them. I write at length about this in my book because it was such a challenge for me.

The other thing I would say is for many it will be extremely restrictive. But it is incredibly satiating and healthful.

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

Yes I exercise consistently. I did even before the diet. I incorporate around 1 hour / day to movement with purpose. I typically follow some sort of plan like P90X but I don’t always bring that intensity. I enjoy doing chest exercises 2x / week, leg and Yoga movements at least once a week. I also like to have cardio at least once and that usually gives me a rest day to walk and stretch.

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 start progressively. Don’t think you have to go all in and eat organs and take on everything all at once. There are great videos on Youtube, two excellent books *cough* mine and Dr. Saladino’s.. Mine will focus on actually incorporating the diet and the plans, mastering your emotions. Saladino’s does an outstanding job helping us look further into the depths of the sciences and biochemistry as to why this works well for our bodies.

Again, if you simply just left the broccoli off the plate for a larger steak that’s a step. The more you can shift from plant foods -> animal foods the better you’ll likely start to feel and function.

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

Yes, the evidence and results we’re seeing are too strong to deny. It has become the new “Keto” movement for all practical purposes. It is ketogenic but brings MUCH better benefits to most individuals when done properly.

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

Yes, as I mentioned I have written a detailed book on this topic. People can get their copy at:

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Amelie

Introduce Yourself.

I will graduate from high school this summer and start to study mechanical engineering in Munich afterwards.

How did you eat before Carnivore.

Before I did a strict ketogenic diet for about 6 months while counting my macros.

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

Like every girl my age, I had problems with my body shape and skin. With keto that improved a little but I still felt chubby and wasn’t really satisfied. Additionally my nose was always stuffed due to allergies. I was just curious.

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

In the beginning I ate all kinds of meat, dairy, sausage and eggs etc. but no organs or too much fat. Now I’m eating mostly beef including organs because I experienced digestion problems on dairy, pork and sausages. I’ve upped my fat but still feel sick if it’s too much. I started with three meals a day, then introduced intermittent fasting with two meals a day and since two weeks I’m doing OMAD.

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

When I started the Carnivore diet I experienced weight loss, clearing of the skin, no brain fog anymore, stronger motivation, better focus and muscle building. But on top of that what surprised me the most was that I could listen to my body a lot better, I didn’t have these mood fluctuations like before, I could do extended fasts without dying from hunger and I gained more self confidence in bucking the trend. If you compare it to other diets it’s kinda funny how easy and fast it is to cook on Carnivore and how cheap nutritious meat is, including organs and fat in comparison to a plant based diet. Just think of how many products you need as side dishes or as a snack!

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

Clearly the Carnivore diet changes your social life. Instead of eating out, drinking alcohol, going into a café, you rather do sports, go into nature and just enjoy talking to other people. This can be seen negatively but also positively as it is a change to a healthier lifestyle.  Another aspect that can be seen from both sides is the increased sensitivity. I developed certain intolerance’s against any kinds of vegetable oils, spices, dairy, alcohol, carbohydrates, pork fat etc. These came up after half a year on the Carnivore diet and mostly revealed themselves through diarrhea, nausea and stomach aching. Actually this is a sign for a leaky gut which has been there before, too. This issue can probably only be healed with a so called paleolithic ketogenic diet from paleomedicina, containing beef, lamb and water exclusively and a high fat content. In real life it’s sometimes hard to buck the trend and stay consequent, especially in a plant-based community. But it will pay off in the end!

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

With the Carnivore diet I at first wanted to build up my muscles and get leaner. So I introduced two training sessions, one for my upper and one for my lower body with some cardio like jogging for half an hour. As I did a workout or went jogging every day, my body consequently couldn’t really adapt to the fat-system and thus my creatinine kinase and my alkaline phosphatase levels raised. After a while I noticed that I lost my cycle which couldn’t be related to health problems because my hormone levels and my uterus were fine. Finally after more than half a year I contacted the paleomedicina clinic in Budapest. Their doctors found out that my cycle loss had been caused by my exaggerating fitness life. With the help of an assistant I followed this diet and stopped training and doing sports for two months. Now my levels went back again and I started going to the gym 2-3 times a week to not overchallenge my body. All in all  my period didn’t come back till now but I think this is due to my stressful study life for my A-level exams.

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

For me still the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. I can recommend to try it out for 30 days which is a short period compared to your whole life. But don’t overeat on cheese and protein! Be aware of the big importance of fat that will enable you to be in the healing state ketosis.

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

I don’t think the diet will ever be accepted by the whole health system because there is so much fraud going on. For example it would be a bad profit for the pharma companies if everybody is healthy again and also for industrial companies who mostly produce plant and not animal based food. That’s why there is such a big money trafficking behind the media, the doctors, the pharma etc. that make it hard to work against it.

Carnivore Diet success stories – with Kat

Interview with Kat

Introduce Yourself.

I’m Katleen (Kat) Reid. I live in the US with my husband, along with our 4 horses (2 Shires, 1 Friesian and a mini horse), our 3 dogs and 4 chickens. We run a residential remodeling business from at our 14 acre farm and also partner with our animals in life coaching and health coaching. I hold a masters in physical education and physical therapy from the University of Brussels, and I am also a certified functional medicine health coach (currently in the process of becoming National Board Certified) and a certified MeatRx Coach (animal based nutrition). 

As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the human body, health, nutrition and nature. My journey from physical education through physical therapy and personal training lead me to different routes that ultimately merged again through Health Coaching; I worked as a researcher at the University of Brussels (faculty of biometrics and biomechanics) and worked on documenting the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in boys and girls between 3 and 17 with overweight and obesity, followed by co-creating a multidisciplinary intervention program with a small group of children. Once I graduated as a physical therapist, and started my own practice combined with work in a back- and neck clinic, I started looking into ways to get to the root cause of my clients’ issues and was passionate about supporting them to return to a life in which they could thrive at all levels. Even though I loved my work as a PT, I felt that oftentimes I could not access the core issue with my chronic patients, not even through adding modalities like functional training, coaching and by working with our other specialists like ergonomists and psychologists. I felt I lacked skills and knowledge as a young PT. Little did I know at the time that nutrition – an overlooked core lifestyle factor – could have been a key factor in their healing process and overall feeling of well-being and how they perceived themselves and life in general. 

My professional life and personal love for adventure did take me on a quest of exploring our natural state of health and the roots of what causes discomfort and illness and what can regenerate our natural state of well-being. Today at the age of 40, I am happy to combine my past and current experience and ever growing knowledge with a broad spectrum of health and lifestyle coaching.

How did you eat before Carnivore.

Before Carnivore, I had been keto adapted for 5 years. Over the course of those 5 years, I started out with the typical bacon, eggs and cheese approach, which quickly transitioned to a dairy-free whole foods approach in which I would eat fresh organic veggies, local organic and pasture raised meats/eggs, lots of olive oil, ghee and Bulletproof Brain Octane, coffee, and the occasional homemade almond flour cookie substitutes or homemade coconut ice cream and treats like dark chocolate 🙂 I barely ate processed foods though. I did feel great in general, but I remember I wished I would have less cravings and less ups-and downs in my mood and energy (which I blamed on my cycle at the time). 

Going even further back in time, I can say that I grew up in a very health conscious family. I grew up in Belgium and we did eat an omnivorous diet. My parents kept “candy” as an occasional treat (birthday, Christmas, …) so I did not grow up eating lots of sugar or processed foods. In my teens, my parents switched to a low-fat/low sodium diet driven by their doctor and so I of course ate the same meals. I do remember that this was the onset of crazy cravings. This was also the time that I believed I was going to save the planet by becoming a vegetarian, so from my 16th through my 23rd, I ate a low fat, low sodium vegetarian diet. Once I went to University at the age of 19, I ate really unhealthy for a few years, which I believe was caused by living with my roommates and enjoying tasty food that I had missed at home (fried food, sandwiches, lots of cookies and chocolate). Once I graduated from University and started my work-life, I got back to whole foods and fresh home cooking. I then also had access to local meat and the fact that it was local and organic, I was back to eating meat again around the age of 24. Between that time and my move to the USA at 32, I felt good! Then, in my first years in the USA, I started eating with my husband and I would describe this diet as a combination of a low fat bodybuilding diet (oatmeal, protein powders, lean meats, ….3 meals and 3 snacks a day) and lots of restaurant food and prepared meals (nevermind exploring all the American food I had never seen!). I gained 16 lbs in my first year and started getting digestive issues and lots of colds. My skin started breaking out and I felt bloated almost all the time. With all this discomfort, I also experienced constant cravings for sweets, chocolate and nut butters. So this discomfort I tolerated for 2 more years until I got the flu. I did not heal from it and my doctor suggested me to take anti-biotics. It was the second time ever in my life I took an anti-biotic and I decided it was beyond time to make a change! I was active, I was happy BUT, my nutrition and overall well-being were worse than I had ever experienced. I made it a point to start homecooking again. This was also the time that the ketogenic diet was becoming popular through Jimmy Moore and the books by Phinney and Volek. It sounded too good to be true, but with my research background and both my husband’s and my own upbringing and the fear of (saturated) fat, it took us a while to feel comfortable putting the ketogenic diet into practice.  So we did our research, dove in deep and the rest is history 🙂 Over the course of those 5 years, I lost those 16 pounds and felt great again. Little did I know though that another level of “great” was waiting for me …

Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I tried Carnivore on January 1st, 2019 out of pure curiosity. This was the result of a few YouTube videos my husband and I watched the month before. We looked up Dr. Shawn Baker, the interviews of Jordan Peterson and Michaela Peterson and Dr. Shawn Baker on the Joe Rogan show and we were hooked. My husband felt excited about the clarity and simplicity of this way of eating. I was intrigued by the results I heard about, but felt a bit sceptical … I was feeling so good and was afraid of loosing this … Also, I was halfway my Functional Medicine Coaching curriculum and was convinced I needed my colorful veggies (phytonutrients, anti-oxidants), fiber and very balanced diet. I was also taking about 10 supplements to “optimize” my health. So at first I decided I would support my husband and eat my first meal of the day “carnivore” with him, and have my big colorful salad as my second meal. On the third day, I had also digested all the available videos by Dr. Paul Saladino and his info gave me more confidence to go all in and try it for a month. I thought: I can easily adhere to this way of eating for a month and not get in too much trouble 🙂 Let’s go for it and decide at the end.

And I haven’t looked back since! 

How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I chose to follow a nose-to-tail way of eating. My staples are any cut of beef (we invested in a local regeneratively raised 1/2 steer), either raw liver/raw kidney/heart, whole eggs or just raw egg yolks (we have our own chickens and access to local pasture raised eggs when needed), suet, and Redmond Real Salt. Occasionally I have raw Iberico Pork fat (from White Oak Pastures) or heritage pork (from our local farmer or White Oak Pastures) and salmon roe (we source it from Vital Choice). I also make broth weekly from the bones we have/leftover bones and chicken feet. And I do supplement with glycine to balance out methionine and with bone meal (weekly) as a calcium source. I certainly want to add that – when eating keto before – I was taking at least 6 supplements constantly. Since going carnivore, I only take glycine and calcium (bone meal) on days I don’t eat any tendinous tissue or egg shells or soft bones and will occasionally use collagen powder too.

I have experimented with coffee (been coffee-free from August through December) and added back some decaffeinated coffee in the morning – which does not seem to impact me negatively. I used to drink red wine occasionally when going out, so I also left out wine fully for the same amount of time as the coffee, and allow myself now to have a glass when eating out or occasionally during a movie night. I don’t feel a negative impact when I consume 1 glass maybe once every 2 weeks or spread out more.

As for water, I seem to drink about 1.5L-2L a day, and this can be a mix of our own well water and San Pellegrino/Gerolsteiner. 

I give myself free choice before every meal, yet so far I keep gravitating toward eating 100% animal based because it makes me feel so good. If I would get in a situation where I have no choice over what to eat, I do have non-negociables like: fried foods, vegetable oils, processed foods, grains, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds. I refuse airplane food entirely and choose to fast during traveling. 

If I really want something different or a treat, I would choose between Rebel Ice cream, full fat Greek Yogurt, red organic wine or bacon 🙂 Not a bad line-up of treats if you ask me. However, looking back at the past 13+ months, I had only 3 days that I chose either the ice cream or yoghurt and all three times they left me with inflammation, digestive discomfort and I haven’t included these items any more since. I like feeling great too much. 

What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.

A stable mood, a solid energy and a complete lack of cravings and an overall positivity. A clearer skin and a natural desire to eat only one to two meals a day; I gravitate towards eating early, so for me that means between sunrise and noon-ish. This pattern has also improved my sleep and mental focus in the afternoon! I also love the simplicity of this way of eating. The limited amount of choices is incredibly freeing and I spend so much less time planning, shopping, preparing and actually eating. Don’t get me wrong I am a foodie at heart and still love being creative in the kitchen. BUT, it is so freeing to work with less ingredients and need less food, have no waste and still create beautiful and tasteful plates. 

Another beneficial side-effect has been being involved a growing community of friends who live a similar lifestyle and experience a shared joy, love respect and awe for life.

What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.

None so far. I don’t miss anything. Also, where I hear some people finding it challenging in social situations, I personally don’t sense this being an issue for me. Also, going out to restaurants (we are very picky and go out to mostly just one, maybe twice a month) is a non-issue as the chef is always happy to adjust the plate. And this is something I notice being really common in the US: restaurants easily adjust according to dietary preferences. 

We don’t have vegan or vegetarian friends or family members, so when we are hosting and food is part of it, everyone is happy with ribeyes or a roast. And we always suggest to BYOV (bring your own veggies). 

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

Yes I do! And I have been active my whole life. 

In my first year of eating nose-to-tail carnivore, I did keep my activities and exercise the same, meaning I did my regular daily farm chores, seasonal farm chores and a daily average of 20,000 steps and lifting heavy things (read: functional farm fitness). With that, I did notice my body composition change to getting leaner and a little more muscular. 

Now, in my second year I added weight lifting again. I have always put on muscle with ease on any type of diet, so I am curious how my body composition will adapt. I feel strong, I have plenty of energy in the gym and I recover really well. If one thing, I would say I recover better than I can remember from before Carnivore. Now, while increasing my strength workouts, I am already blown away by how easily I can play with my macros and my workout intensity. There is a very clear and clean action/response as long as I respect my recovery and sleep. 

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

If you are simply curious: Go for it, try it for a month!

A part of me would love someone interested to try it “all in” for a month and then decide what’s next. Depending on what diet the individual comes from, it may be a pretty radical change and mean a week to two weeks of feeling “weird” – things like the keto-flu, diarrhoea or constipation may occur during the transition. However I believe that anyone can stick to something new for at least 21 to 30 days and ultimately feel the difference. I would advice to write down how you feel at the start. Go in detail from head to toe! And take note of any and all changes along the way. 

If you need healing, take it slow.

When someone is looking to heal issues and maybe looking to make a long term lifestyle change, I would recommend a different approach. I would ease into it more, and look at “long term” success and compliance and look at all areas that contribute to someone’s feeling of well-being. I would also recommend to consult with a doctor experienced in this way of eating to help with establishing and understanding one’s baseline profile (and follow up quarterly or a few times a year) and possibly a coach to help with the transitions and adherence. Aside from professional support, joining a carnivore community is extremely powerful and fun! 

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

I believe so. It has already proven to be a very powerful therapeutic diet, temporary elimination diet and more and more people are showing up who have followed a type of either strict or carnivore-ish diet for 5 or more years. I believe that the current lack of large studies keeps us a bit hesitant when considering this diet as a long term lifestyle. Meat has still a “scary” taste and we need more data within a carnivore context to show all benefits. Our bodies simply operate differently in an “animal-based-nutrition” context. But I have hope for the future! 

Also, I wonder how the term “carnivore” will evolve over the next years. Will it be defined as “only” animal products or will it become more “animal based” with the occasional inclusion of certain plants? I would already be elated if the current carnivore movement results in expanding research, debunking myths, raising awareness around healthy food choices among the public, and showing consumers honest data to then make their personal choices. We may always be on a quest about what is best to optimize our individual health, but I believe a certain amount of variables are known and many are very close to be proven. 

As for myself, I am also curious if I will keep feeling this great or if I need to make seasonal changes at some point. As for taste and satiety however, it is the easiest and most satisfying way of eating I have ever experienced. 

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

I love our carnivore community. I am mostly active on Instagram, and I am blown away by the support and inspiration people offer and share. Everyone seems to want to help because this diet has helped them so much in the first place. I believe there is something to feeling good and the gratitude that comes with regenerating ones own health. You can not NOT share it!

I don’t know if a 100% carnivore diet will ultimately be for everyone, at any time, or forever. I think this is what personal experiments and future research will reveal. What I do believe is that it is the purest, most nutrient dense and bioavailable way of eating. It offers a way of experiencing oneself and life in a very grounded and very connected way, without all the “noise”. And I wish for everyone to – at least once in their lifetime – get to experience this. 

Following my personal values I am also an advocate for regenerative farming, and when it comes to choosing my animal based food sources, I support my local resources first and look beyond when needed. 

While I am building my personal brand, for now you can find me and connect with me on Instagram (koach.kat). In the very near future I will add a YouTube channel and a Podcast and a Website/Blog to it 🙂 People can work with me as a health coach, which can cover any and all of the areas that make up our lifestyle. In my coaching and facilitating the personal growth of my clients, I do focus on reconnecting with nature and living life in line with one’s own nature. 

Within the carnivore context, I am contributing as a coach to the MeatRx.com community. I am also part of Dr. Paul Saladino’s team as a health coach, empowering clients on their journey into carnivory. 

And for those who love conferences: I hope to see you in person at White Oakchella, at KetoCon or at CarnivoryCon this year!

Carnivore Diet Success Stories

Carnivore Diet success story – with Michael

Interview with Michael

1) Introduce Yourself.

Hi, I’m Michael Scher, and I’m a carnivore. I’m also a guy who’s interested in longevity, human optimization, philosophy and the general state of humanity and how we interact with each other and with our planet.

2) How did you eat before Carnivore.

I have always eaten “healthy” as a result of my upbringing, having been transplanted as an adolescent from New York City to rural Canada, where we raised our own food in a fairly ancestral manner. I started transitioning away from gluten, then grains and sugars about 12 years ago, and have been keto/LCHF for about 10 years.

3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.

I tried carnivore because I had plateaued with keto/LCHF, and felt that I still had gains to be made. When I first heard about carnivore, I thought it was the craziest thing I had ever heard! But I did the research, and with a BSc in biochemistry, I felt I had the tools to evaluate the data I was absorbing. I became convinced that a well-constructed nose-to-tail carnivore diet could be nutritionally complete, so I tried it for a 30-day period. That was nearly a year ago, and I haven’t looked back since.

4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.

I am also a trained chef, so I try to make my plates as interesting as I can, without sacrificing either taste or good nutrition. I source my food from a variety of providers, emphasizing good and humane rearing practices such as grass-fed and -finished ruminants and dairy, pastured eggs and wild caught seafood. I eat nose-to-tail every day, trying to balance meat and offal, including whole organisms such as eggs or sardines, and limiting my dairy. I eat foods which I consider to be “vitamin-rich” raw, such as liver, egg yolks and bone marrow, to avoid denaturing the nutrients. I avoid snacking between meals and processed foods, especially dessert replacements. I eat within a six-hour window, having my first meal at around 1pm and eating until fully satiated. If I am hungry in 4-5 hours, I will eat again, usually a smaller meal. If not, I will stop eating until the next day.

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

I have seen a leaning out of my physique, better and easier digestion, improvements to my hair, gums, skin and nails, quicker recovery from athletic activity and better sleep.

IMG_0544

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

I occasionally have sporadic and short-lived digestive issues, which I attribute to eating certain foods raw (liver, yolks and marrow). I still crave sweets from time to time. I find that too much dairy, especially processed, unfermented dairy, can cause me to feel bloated. And I am so tired of explaining my WOE to skeptics who, despite their own obvious bad health, feel justified in warning me of the imminent perils of being a carnivore.

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

I do exercise, nearly every day. I am an avid competitive cyclist, and ride about 7,000 miles (10,000km) per year. I also workout in the gym, doing short, bodyweight sets to failure (à la Ted Naiman) 4-5 times per week.. I find that carnivore, like any LCHF diet, allows me to ride for hours on end in a fasted state, using only my stored body fat as fuel. I’m not sure if lifting would be better with the inclusion of carbs in my diet, because I only started lifting in the last 5 years. I occasionally experiment with resistant starches such as UCAN with my athletics, but I can’t really speak definitively to the results yet.

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, “Give it a try, what have you got to lose?!” You’ll know with 30-days how it’s working for you. I would also advise eating at home for the first 30-days, because there are so many hidden sources of unhealthy foods in restaurant foods, such as hidden sugars and industrial seed oils, which I think are the two worst foods for human health (especially the latter!).

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

As a diet? No, I don’t thinks so. As a directional indicator towards improved health, I certainly hope so. And I think we are seeing that happen already, but so are we seeing the rise in popularity of veganism…

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

I think it is critical that we all take individual responsibility for the way we feel every morning when we wake up. We have become overly reliant on the medical system to fix the woes we are bringing upon ourselves. Eat well, as your great-grandparents might have. Sleep deeply. Turn off the television and hug your children. Embrace the world around you. And do the work – any life that feels too easy probably is, and by the time you realize the price you have to pay for that ease, it will be too late to renegotiate! 

You can find me mostly on Instagram @michaelscher but stay tuned, I have some new ventures coming in this space that I am proud to bring to the world.
