Benjamin improved fitness, hair, mood, mental health, sex on carnivore diet

This diet has changed my life.

I’ve been obese all the way up to the age of 16. I got into MMA and lost over 80 pounds, from 230-150. I was eating a pretty “healthy” diet to get this weight down and maintained that diet to stay in fight shape. But I didn’t feel great. I got into fighting and had to do a lot of weight cuts (19 fights). Many of these cuts where terrible for my health. Some fight camps I was only eating only fruit salads, chicken breast, greens, and oatmeal. I would have to lose over 15lbs in a week to make fight weight by starvation and dehydration. When I would get into the ring, I didn’t look like a fighter one bit. I looked weak and always had a belly.

Eventually I took a break from the weight cuts and gained little muscle but was still fat and didn’t feel great.

Through this break I ended up terribly depressed to the point I had suicidal thoughts. I dropped out of nursing school after a year in because I had no drive. My sex drive was zero, wouldn’t even get hard from watching porn. I was always tired, always. I didn’t want to go out and never wanted to socialize. My confidence was zero. I couldn’t talk like a normal person, always stuttering and mumbling.

I contribute all of this to my diet, bad weight cuts, and getting hit in the head.

I didn’t have health insurance and didn’t really believe a doctor could help me. I’m not about taking medications to cure my symptoms when I wanted to fix what was causing these problems.

So I did my research and eventually tried Keto. I had some success but was still fat. THEN I listened to the Joe Rogan podcast with Shawn Baker.

I said I’m doing this after listening and it’s been ever since that podcast.

After the first year or so I felt amazing. I was finally getting stronger in the gym. Confidence went up. Sex drive back. I got my CNA certificate and got a great job as a CNA and went back to school for nursing.

But I was getting fat and had very dry hair on this diet. So I did some periods where I would try to eat normal again because maybe I thought it wasn’t right for me. But whenever I did this I would never feel as good as I did when I ate only meat.

But now things are finally working for me. I’m getting lean while eating 2-3lbs a meat a day. My hair is getting better. And I’m making a lot of progress in the gym. I’m in over a week of doing 100-200 pull ups a day and 200-300 push-ups a day with little sleep. I sleep around 3-6hrs a night. My awkward ass found myself a beautiful girlfriend. I’m performing great at work. Went from a 3.0 GPA at a community college to a 4.0 GPA in a university that uses a Harvard grading scale (94-100 is an A). I am not going back ever.

I mostly eat hamburger patty’s because of price. Before I was eating once or twice a day but now 2-4 because how hungry i’ve been lately. I do supplement w/ boron, ashwangaha, bone meal, and vitamin C. And I do drink about 8 cups of black coffee a day but because I usually don’t sleep until 3am and I love coffee. I fall asleep fine and could fall asleep right after I finish work at 11:30 but due to responsibilities I don’t get to sleep til then and I am fine with that.

I am excited for the future because of this diet.
