Craig lost weight, gained muscle and improved his relationship with food and alcohol on a carnivore diet

Hi Dr Baker, 

 
I wanted to take a second to tell you my success story with the carnivore diet. In my early years I was an elite level baseball player, playing division 1 NCAA ball as a right handed pitcher. After my playing career, I yo-yo’d up and down in weight and could never find something that worked. I had tried all the restrictive calorie diets, even going vegan for a while but just couldn’t stick with anything because I was always starving. It wasnt until I started a carnivore diet that I saw real success. The last 3 months I have been eating a red meat heavy carnivore style diet, I gave up alcohol, and i am diligent with my workouts. I have gone from 307lbs to 240lbs and drastically increased my lean muscle mass. Thanks to outside of the box thinking and throwing out the social concept of demonizing red meat, I have never felt healthier and my energy in all aspects of my life shows it. Thank you for being the voice for this important movement. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Craig

Lisa healed her eating disorder on a carnivore diet

I want to share that, after 40 years of struggling with Bulimia, I became binge-and-purge free on Nov 15th, my first day of carnivore. And believe me, it’s not that I hadn’t tried like crazy for those 40 years, including 18 inpatient admissions, thousands of counseling sessions, and a willingness to buy every book, try every program.

I keep asking myself, “How is this possible? How could it be this simple?” I mean, I know that all those prior attempts may have helped get me to where I am with this current situation, but I can’t help but wonder what could have been if I had been put on this WOE 40 or even 20 years ago??

I felt a little better on keto, but I still wound up bingeing and purging keto foods. I felt like the biggest failure – thought keto was supposed to stop all that. Now, I have zero cravings, zero episodes of overeating, and very little hunger (mostly right before mealtime, lol!). My mood is elated! I mean, it’s glorious! I wake up every morning and want to yell it out to my neighbors: I’m free!! (Don’t worry, I haven’t.)

I wish this for every person with an eating disorder. How could I be selfish and not want to share this with everyone?? Lord, just please don’t let this stop…

Thank you to every person who has a YouTube channel and talks about this, especially you, Shawn Baker!

Jane improved her anxiety, and lymphatic colitis on a carnivore diet

Hi Shawn,

After being diagnosed with lymphatic Colitis I tried keto for 3 years with only slight improvement. However since going  carnivore my symptoms have vanished. Along with improved gut symptoms my 54 year old skin is firmer and my anxiety lessened.
The Carnivore Diet really works.
Thank you for all you do!

Lee improved his energy, cravings, mood, and mental clarity on a carnivore diet

After over indulging in carbs for a month with weekends away and a holiday, I noticed my body composition starting to slip so decided to take on the challenge of a 50 day strict 100% carnivore way of eating.  Before this challenge I was 90/95% carnivore. 
The first thing I noticed was how when on a strict carnivore diet my cravings for sugar disappeared after around 10days which made the whole process so easy!!! I ate two meals a day, and ate both meals until I was full! 
I experienced zero hunger throughout the challenge and found my energy levels were through the roof!!! On top of this my mental clarity and mood were so good!!! The more I experiment with this way of eating, I find the stricter I am the easier it is!!! 
 
Thank you for all the support you provide us. 
 
Cheers Lee

Hans lost weight, improved his skin, depression and self image on a carnivore diet

Hey Meatrx!

 
My name is Hans de Wet. I am currently 28 years old and extremely grateful for the carnivore diet and the things I have learned from Dr. Shawn Baker. I use to be fat all my life. 
 
I think I was insulin-resistant early in life and always felt I was in the wrong body. I only wanted to eat carbohydrates as a kid and into my late teens and my health suffered as a result.
 
After school, I studied a diploma in exercise science in the hopes of changing my situation. I became entrenched in lifting heavyweights and the gym environment.
 
I fell in love with the lifestyle, but I never lost the weight I could even row a quick 500m row, but I was strong and fat.
I have been dabbling in low carb diets for quite some time, but couldn’t get below 105kg! The last year I have been doing carnivory and have been blown away with the results and how easy it has been. I had used to have constant heartburn throughout my school years and did not even know what it was!
 
 I remember not being able to concentrate during math classes after break times, eating bread every day and falling asleep(literally!) The teachers only thinking I was ill-disciplined. Which was not true.
 
Consequently, my grades suffered terribly and it has affected my life quite drastically. My peers where all lean I suffered extreme weight gain and terrible acne as a result of my diet. This made me very depressed as a young adult and all I wanted was to be good looking and happy. I never removed my shirt on vacation at the beach and always making up excuses. I medicated with cannabis and only recently was able to quit during my carnivore experiment I smoked daily for 10 years!
 
But all has changed. I got more sun than any December vacation before and spent all day on the beach in the sun without a shirt. I am now very happy and disciplined, I never cheat and I have zero cravings! I now weigh 88kg and want to lose even more! I bought my carnivore Coaching coarse today and cant wait to start coaching people!
 
Kind regards
Hans

Richard lost weight and improved his addiction, depression and mood on a carnivore diet

Ive tried all my life to be happy and healthy to no avail until now. From 320lbs to 183lbs in a 1 and a half years starting with keto for 5 months and switching to a carnivore diet for the last year. Keto got the weight moving and carnivore got my mind straight and even more weight off. 

I managed to get off Paxil which was the antidepressant I used to hold myself together while also battling a opiod addiction. I’ve been on methadone for 18 years give or take and am now tapering down with a real shot off getting clean all because the mental stability the carnivore diet provides.  Also managing arthritis pain caused by my previous health condition and side effects of the methadone. I can’t thank you enough for sharing this message of hope that knowone has to suffer the rest of their life. I thought I would be fat and miserable all my life. I thought I would be on antidepressants and methadone till I died. Live long and eat meat

Andrew improved his digestion, brain fog, joint pain and libido on a carnivore diet

Hi My name is Andrew 
 
I gave up alcohol 5 years ago which is a great achievement in itself.
2 years after giving up the drink I though my health would have improved but I found it getting worse. I had problems with Libido, gut issues, brain fog, poor memory, joint pain, lack of energy and I also became fat.
 
In 2017 I read 84 books and I’ve lost count of the podcasts I’ve listen to, all health related.
I did 6 months of Keto where I did loose some weight but it was until New Years Day 2019 I began my Carnivore Journey. The first month or two I wasn’t sure that this was the right way of eating for me, I didn’t feel quite right.
 
 I stuck with it and I can tell you I’m so happy I did. I’m like a teenager again,my libido returned, testosterone through the roof at 1020mg/dL . No more gut issues, no more brain fog, memory and mind sharp as ever it was, joint pain no longer, fat evaporated with solid muscle and strength build with just 10 minute bodyweight workouts 4 times a week.
 
I dreamed of having a six pack at 18 now I have one. My advice to anyone jumping in board with this diet is that transition may take some time, just stick with it and you’ll come out the other side like I have. I have my life back.

Christoper improved his joint pain, anxiety and depression along with loosing weight on a carnivore diet

I’v been carnivore for a little over a year now.  The reason I started this way of eating, was to rid myself of the anxiety and depression that was making my life more difficult then it had to be. As a added benefit Iv lost over 40lb. I had a meniscus tear in my right knee. For four years I could not bend my knee at the joint more then 70 degrees, but after going carnivore I have regained my flexibility.

Joette lost weight, improved her depression, sleep, hormones and got off 24 different medications on a carnivore diet

This is what an 80lb transformation looks like. In fact, the first 2 pics were taken the day before I had a gastric lap band installed. (18 years ago.) 7 years later the band would fail & nearly kill me. I had an emergency surgery & to have it removed. The 80lbs I had lost from the surgery came back almost immediately! I had a band on my stomach, which restricted my food intake, which also restricted my nutrients that lead to poor metabolism, destroyed my hormone health, etc… Since Jan. 3, 2017 I have been effortlessly losing the 80lbs again, but have never restricted my calories, I have never felt starved or deprived! I’m sure I have fixed my metabolic health, hormones, depression, anxiety, cellular heath & much more! Up to July 31st 2018, I was eating #ketogenicdiet . Aug. 1, 2018 (my birthday) I switched to the #carnivorediet … My journey wasn’t just weight loss anymore, it was healing! 🙌 I’m off 24 meds now, a CPAP machine, inhaler, infusions from the doctors office every 8 weeks, Celiac Disease & IBS under control, no more hypertension that had to be controlled with 4 different meds and ‘3’ Autoimmune Diseases in remission! I’m so thankful that @kendberry.md put a 1 month Carnivore challenge out that August! This way of eating has been life changing for me! 🙏 Once I had completed that first month of Carnivore, there was NO WAY I was turning back! I had forgotten how it felt to feel good… I couldn’t remember ever feeling as good as I did in my life! People may think I’m strange for this way of eating! I don’t care, it’s working!

I just want to share my health journey with you & maybe give someone a little encouragement. I am not where I want to be yet, but I’ve come a long way… I had been struggling for about 6 years with a LOT of symptoms that couldn’t seem to be diagnosed. So many different symptoms that I was sent to a Rheumatologist, Pulmonologist, Cardiologist, Hematologist & a Neurologist. As you can imagine, all of these Specialist found something to diagnose me with. And naturally they all began prescribing the meds… Lots and lots of meds! 26 different medications to be exact. This took them about 3 years to do… So for the second half of the 6 years I should have been feeling better all medicated up, right? Nope, instead I ballooned up to 234lbs & actually felt worse. The diagnosis was Depression, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue, Sjogren’s Syndrome & Celiac Disease. Plus, I had Hypertension & Sleep Apnea, with a touch of Neuropathy. I decided to try to take charge of my weight on Jan. 3, 2017 with the Ketogenic Diet that I had heard about. Plus, it would be gluten-free for the Celiac Disease that I had just been diagnosed with. Well, I lost 80lbs in just 1 1/2 years… I discovered that this way of eating was definitely going to be sustainable. I felt like there was more benefits that I could be getting out of this way of eating, because I had heard & read stories of people healing their depression, etc… The only thing I had under control was the Celiac Disease. This is when I took the Carnivore Diet challenge… I thought what the heck, my weight is stalled so I might as well give it a try. I don’t think 2 weeks has passed into this Carnivore Diet I noticed that I was walking better, I didn’t have all the nagging pain I suffered with daily & I was sleeping better! I had some of my regular doctors visits during this time… Guess what?!?! My blood work started coming back amazing! So amazing that my Hematologist was scratching his head trying to figure out what was going on… In 3 years that he’d been working with me & giving me iron infusions had he seen my numbers so good. I told him I knew why they were so good & why I’m feeling so good. I don’t think he wanted to hear what I had to say, but I told him anyway. I told him about the Carnivore Diet! He just did a face plant in his hands while shaking his head & mumbled “I’ve heard this a lot lately.” 😊In the next few months, I never lost any more weight. But, more amazing things started happening! I lost inches, I was able to come off of 24 out of 26 meds & I was able to stop using my CPAP machine!!! I want to share, share, share this info with you… Wishing to give hope to others or give someone the courage to try Carnivore if they are having qualms.
I only wish I would had known about Carnivore Diet sooner. Let’s all get the word out!

Melissa improved her depression, chronic fatigue, PCOS and endometriosis on a carnivore diet

Interstitial Cystitis,
Vulvodynia,
Metabolic syndrome,
High blood pressure and cholesterol,
Unstable weight including Underweight, Overweight and Obesity,
Chronic yeast infections, endometriosis, PCOS culminating in a hysterectomy and a
Pelvic Organ Prolapse (grade 2) Whew!
I came to carnivore in the spring of 2019 after thinking about it for a year and reluctantly deciding to give it a 30 day trial. I had gradually lost 40 pounds before starting carnivore and was at a normal BMI. I’ve lost an additional 13 pounds effortlessly since making the transition. I no longer have most of the above issues and the only medication I’m on is bio identical HRT for early menopause from the hysterectomy.
The additional benefits I’ve experienced so far include: stable mood, increased motivation, improved relationships, stronger nails, softer skin and hair, stronger teeth and immune system. I’m also feeling so good that I’ve decided to go back to University in the Fall to finish a degree I put on the back burner over 25 years ago! I finally have energy and desire to live life to the fullest! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the inspiring people in the carnivore community who shared your stories. Melissa
