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

Brett heals depression, anger, nervous breakdown, insomnia, joint pain, dry skin on a carnivore diet

Why I am a thankful carnivore

I was 1st diagnosed with major depression in 1990.

In 1995 I started taking anti-depressants.

This began a cycle of wellness vs illness that gradually tilted towards being ill most of the time.

In 2007 I had your text book nervous breakdown. Crippling insomnia & anxiety joined the party.
Doctor put me on much stronger meds that included Effexor, Wellbutrin, Ambien, Remeron, Lamactil, Abilify, Seroquel, Ativan, Trazadone, Latuda & many more!

From 1995 till the end of 2017 my brain chemistry was constantly under assault by these medicines that never really helped me for more than a few weeks at most.

In 2015 I discovered I could treat my symptoms successfully with cannabis. I began LCHF diet & started walking.

By the end of 2015 I was off the anti-depressants.

By the end of 2016 I was off the ativan (after 8 years of daily prescribed use)

By the end 2017 I was off insomnia meds.

But I was still dependent on cannabis. Even as a legal patient here in Florida it is very expensive to use & I hated being dependent upon it just to treat my mood.

Then I discovered Dr Jordan Peterson on Rogan talking about the Carnivore way of eating which led me directly to Dr Shawn Baker & this website!

On July 16, 2018 I began living carnivorously. I have only consumed meat & water since that day.

10 days into the experience I lost all joint pain.

Beginning on day 23 into day 24 I felt the depression symptoms all vanish. I am 100% of depression now!

My anxiety problem gradually improved every day to where now 6.5 months in, I have no anxiety issues now to speak of.

My skin which use to be VERY dry, cracked & peeling has cleared up immensely.

I lost skin tags. My quality of sleep has improved dramatically. I frequently get 7-8 hours of sleep now.

The background noise in my head is all gone. My ability to observe has improved immensely.

Every aspect of my life has improved since I began eating meat & drinking water. I am on zero pharmaceutical medications.

This is why I am a thankful carnivore now & forever!
