JB maintains muscle mass while competing in ultra marathons on a carnivore diet

As an avid endurance athlete, I found myself abusing caffeine and legal stimulants to keep up with my intense workouts. I decided to get some blood work done to see what was up! It was at this time I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid; of which I would be forced to take a hormone replacement pill every day for the rest jof my life. This was approximately 10 years ago and at the time I was loosely following a ketogenic type diet. Upon being diagnosed, was when I began to do more research into my diet. I would not allow this diagnosis to be an excuse in anyway and I believe it motivates me even more to progress and be even better each day! Since then I have embraced a very high fat, high protein, mostly animal base diet along with intermitting fasting protocols that I designed myself suited for my job, my training, and lifestyle needs. It has been an incredible game changer. 10 years later, I feel that my energy and capacity for my workouts has increased 10 fold, I compete in 3 to 4 Ultra marathons per year ranging from 50 miles to 100 miles runs at a highly competitive level.  I am able to maintain muscle mass and my muscular build through my diet and weight lifting regiment even though my excessive Cardio and Aerobic workouts should be deteriorating both my muscle mass and strength. This Diet and the mindset of “do not believe what others tell you what you can and cannot do” is what this movement really is representing. Research, learn and stay moving!

Tiffany overcame decades of food addiction on a carnivore diet

I lost 130 lbs with a combination of intermittent fasting and low carb paleo eating. In January 2020 when I began experimenting with a carnivore diet, my goals were primarily for body recomposition as I needed to tighten loose skin and build muscle after going from 260 down to 130 lbs. (I am 5’8”)
 
I have had many more NSVs than that now that I have been exclusively carnivore for the last several months. 
 
-I wake before my alarm
– I have sustained energy throughout the day
– I’m now training for a marathon because my legs want to move 
– I’m almost never hungry and actually remind myself to eat
– I sleep more soundly and need less sleep overall
– I’m more productive because my thinking is sharp and clear 
– Body recomposition: I’ve lost 1” from my rib cage, 2” from my hips, and 3 1/2” from my waist
– Anxiety is gone
– Age spots are fading
– The most important NSV of all, sticking to a carnivore diet helped me overcome decades of sugar addiction and carb binges. 
 
Miscellaneous info – Shawn Baker’s carnivore book was my gateway to starting, and I joined meat rx for the 30 day trial January 2020. My full length before/after is 2015 to March 2020. The up close before/after is 2011 to 2020. The most recent before/after shows the difference when I made my most recent tweaks (increase fat/protein ratio and eliminate salt) The difference is from Thanksgiving day to December 18.

Holly healed her Plantar Fasciitis on a carnivore diet

Holly was healthy as a child and didn’t notice any health issues until she was 16 years old and developed a dairy intolerance.  Nine years later Holly had her first of four babies in the span of two years and three months.  After so much in a short time she started to notice her mood change and would be quick to anger and her body was becoming sore and tired.

 

Holly decided to try several diets including the keto diet.  All of the diets worked for weight loss but never healed her pain and discomfort.  

 

Holly decided to try the carnivore diet for eight weeks.  During that time, she healed her aches and pains, headaches, thinning hair, mood and changed her relationship with food.  She decided to say with the carnivore way of eating.
