Danni improved her frequent infections, sleep, digestion, tinnitus and sinus issues on a carnivore diet

Carnivore Success Story: 

Growing up on a ranch I learned early that meat was healthy. I have been on a meat-based diet for my whole life. Probably less so during my college years. I contracted mono during my freshman year. Otherwise I was healthy except for the occasional low iron reading I’d receive at annual checkups. I attributed it to running and heavy periods. Fast forward to my last pregnancy at age 39, when the doctor told me my blood sugar was too high and that this could lead to compilations. She gave me a blood sugar testing kit. I could monitor my blood sugar throughout the day.  It didn’t take me long to realize how much what I ate affected my BS level. I began sticking with a mostly meat diet through the pregnancy and never had to use insulin shots. After pregnancy I returned to more normal meat-based diet. In 2013 I struggled through a West Nile “like” virus. The test for West Nile was negative but my doctor thought it was very similar to it and for lack of a better idea we treated it like that. The fatigue was like when I had Mono, in addition it seemed that each week or two a different system would be under attack. For a while it was hard to breathe, headaches and fever came and went. I lost over 20 pounds. After a few weeks my breathing seemed normal, but my digestive system was challenged. At one point the doctors thought the gallbladder needed to be removed. When that subsided, I was left with constant loud tinnitus 24/7 along with night sweats and chills.

This gradually improved and life became more normal; the tinnitus returned at the end of the day or would return 24/7 when I became fatigued from lack of rest. I caught every flu and cold bug that came around. Allergy symptoms were constant so that I took a pill every day to keep symptoms under control.   I also couldn’t exercise very hard or my muscles would become very tight and the tinnitus would return. This resulted in regaining more than the 20 pounds I had lost from the illness, and it was not muscle. I became flabby and gained more weight around my waist than I’d ever had. It seemed like any additional stress brought symptoms back and I came down with viruses and infections often. 

In 2016 I met a trainer who helped me stay focused on exercising twice a week. This helped strengthen my body and I gained back much of the muscle I had lost. However, I was still about 20 pounds heavier than what was normal for me in my 20s and 30s. In September of 2017 I began the Carnivore diet. Since then I have lost the tinnitus and the extra body fat, while increasing my energy and strength. My body composition has never been better. I rarely need to take an allergy pill. I have not been knocked down by the flu or cold for days at a time since eating this way either.  

I really didn’t think I’d see a huge difference in my health because I’d eaten a meat -based diet my whole life.  I’ve been amazed and feel blessed to have found what works for me. Many thanks to the MeatRx team for spreading the good news and helping me and so many others. 

 Before (Feb. 2017) and Carnivore Measurements:

Chest:              34.5 to 31 in.

Belly Button:  37 to 30 in.

Thigh:              23 to 21 in.

Hips:                41 to 38 in.

Weight:         160 to 140 pounds

Improvements from eating a Carnivore diet for me:

Tinnitus

Allergy symptoms

Sinus issues

Less colds, flu and yeast infections

Less aches and pains

Less bloating

Better digestion less burping and gas

Less body fat more muscle

Better sleep

Stable blood sugar

Andrew improved his mood, energy, cravings, and anxiety on a carnivore diet

Coming out of high school I had never considered what I was eating, and had never deliberately exercised. I wasn’t overweight, but I was soft. By the time I was 22, I was overweight, tired, lazy, probably depressed, at 6’ 235lbs. I tried a low carb and low fat diet, with lots of chicken and egg whites, which was popular at the time, and after some ups and downs I eventually got down to 165, which was leaner than my high school days. This is when I started lifting and experimenting with carbs again, and by about 24 years old I was 200 lbs of lean hard muscle and finding a lot of success with a sort of paleo diet— lots of avocado and nuts with my chicken breast and blueberries. By 26 all of the “good” eating habits were out the window, gym sessions were rare, and my weight was steadily increasing as my muscle was melting away. By 30 I was severely depressed, I couldn’t for the life of me get back into chicken/veggies, and especially couldn’t get myself into the gym. Every day I was looking at a big burger or a steak with an IPA for 20 minutes of enjoyment after a long hard day. I felt a little guilty about the beers and potatoes, but I felt really guilty about the steaks. That’s how brainwashed I was. I had vegan friends and family members influencing my thoughts but I wasn’t doing any reading. Steak was a guilty pleasure and I blamed it (and the beers to a lesser extent) for my decline— I even tried having plant based days and weeks here and there thinking it would help (it didn’t, it made me hungry and sad, even with a grain, a green, and a bean on every plate). That routine lasted about four years, until late 2019, when I hit a soft 230, then to avoid passing 235 and being at my “worst ever” I simply decided not to eat anything that comes with a side of guilt. That was my new diet plan, whatever was guilt free.

Being back on chicken and veggies for a month, with no alcohol or caffeine, I felt really good, and I dropped like 9 lbs. Usually a month was my breaking point for chicken and broccoli and I feared that I was going to cave soon, as I was craving a beer or a whole cake. A few months prior I met a woman who’d lost 80 lbs on carnivore, and I thought she was crazy, or lying. Curious, though, and worried my chicken and spinach diet was going to fizzle out, I researched carnivore and found Dr. Baker. After buying his book and reading half of it I switched from chicken/veggies to steaks and eggs. I thought I felt good on chicken with asparagus, but I felt REALLY good on carnivore.

Within a week I had dropped another 9 lbs or so. I didn’t feel hungry ever, my mood and energy were at a constant 90% or higher, just STABLE. After another week I started to notice my anxiety, while still there, was attached to real problems (like running late, etc) instead of just being constant and for no apparent reason. My appetite was super steady and consistent, I knew a steak and four eggs for breakfast would leave me SATISFIED for 8-10 hours. This made life easier, especially while traveling, or looking after my 10 month old daughter. It’s a lot easier to be a super busy business owner, a good husband, and a good father when you’re not worried about feeding yourself. I stopped obsessing about calories and macros. I stopped feeling guilty. I stopped craving alcohol, sweets, cheese (crazy, right?), or even bread. Bread was hard to give up for chicken and veggies but not hard at all for steaks.

I’ve been almost completely carnivore for seven weeks and they’ve been the most colorful and exciting seven weeks I can remember. Today I weigh just over 190 lbs and I still haven’t gotten back in the gym or taken two steps into a run— but now I’m actually craving it. I plan to get my fitness straightened out very soon and I imagine it’ll be a breeze with how much better I’ve been feeling. Right now a steak makes me feel like I have a pump, it’s pretty much euphoric.

When I was posting pictures of baked potatoes covered with bacon and cheese next to a Guinness, my friends would comment that it looked amazing. Now when I post a rib eye with a side of porterhouse they message me “concerned about my health.” This diet is insane, people think you’re nuts, but for every one “worried” acquaintance I have, I have a dozen who say I’m glowing. I don’t know if I’ll stick to this forever, but I do know I’m keeping it in my back pocket to fall back on in case I ever slip into horrible habits. This has been the EASIEST and most rewarding approach to my physical and mental wellness I’ve ever tried. Thank you, dr. Baker, the Petersons, and joe rogan for sharing about this crazy diet!

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

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.

Brittney improved her mood, join and back pain and lost 40 lbs on a carnivore diet

I didn’t even realize how much pain I was experiencing day to day until I went carnivore and then didn’t have the pain anymore. I used to have pain in my lower back, neck, knees and ankles. I dealt with significant fatigue every day, some days I’d get home at the end of the day and just sit there for a long time in my car because I didn’t have anything left to walk in the house. I thought it was normal being a mom of three to just be tired all the time. Since starting Carnivore 8 months ago my life has changed. I no longer have pain in my body every day. My husband used to get asked to rub my back and ankles constantly and one day I realized it had been weeks since I’d asked. I no longer experience the restless leg syndrome that was something I dealt with every night for years.  I haven’t sat it my car for twenty minutes waiting on the energy to go inside. 

My mental health has improved significantly. I don’t have any diagnosis’s surrounding it but had normalized the level of stress and aggravation I was dealing with, I am significantly happier, more calm and more patient now. My anger isn’t something I feel like I’m constantly having to control because it’s not there like before. I’m a better mother and wife because of this. I was experiencing what I would consider depression around ovulation time for about a year.  It was overwhelming sadness that I could not snap out of for two to three days. That doesn’t happen anymore. After about six months being CV my cycles began to be lighter and shorter and with less pain. I used to have to take ibuprofen for cramps and now I don’t need to. I still have cramps but the pain is a bearable level. 

My adult acne cleared up. My libido made a return, it’s been gone since I was a teenager. I’ve been a mother for 11 years and my sex drive was just gone! Now gradually it’s coming back. Life has become easier because meal planning and cooking has never been simpler. I don’t stress about grocery lists and prepping or planning like I used to. Less dishes, it’s awesome!  I’ve been able to incorporate exercises into my life for the first time ever in my life!  I had two skin tags on my neck that fell off, my Grey hair is turning dark again at the roots!   Before CV I’d only ever been able to stick with any way of eating for 30 days.  Two weeks in I notice I didn’t crave all the carbs and sugar like before and that has made this possible to continue and even easy. I’ve never in my life known what it felt like to not crave bad food. I’ve lost 40lbs at this point and it feels almost effortless.

Amy improved her skin, fibromyalgia, asthma, and relationship with food on a carnivore diet

Hi, I’m Amy and the carnivore diet has healed my fibromyalgia, asthma, issues from hysterectomy and pelvic reconstruction, menopausal problems, chronic migraines, disposition for easy injury, and immunity issues as well as further enhanced my recovery from food addiction. 

 

I have had issues with food addiction and body dysmorphia from as far back as I can remember. Growing up I was a normal body size despite sneaking sugary foods as often as I could. I went on my first diet at age 9 and dieted frequently from about age 13 until age 32. Once I hit my early 20s, I started having real issues with weight, though, and proceeded to take my seat on the weight gain and loss roller coaster. After more than a decade of this hell, I found a 12-step program where I walked in at over 300 pounds (136 kg).

 

After joining the 12-step program In 2002 I started on a food plan that eliminated all sugars, artificial sweeteners, wheat, caffeine, alcohol and excess dietary fats. This plan also called for me to weigh and measure everything I put in my mouth and to eat three set meals a day with one snack at night. I ate a *lot* of vegetables, a decent amount of fruit, a good bit of grains, and minimal protein and fat. I lost 140 pounds (63.5 kg) in my first year or so of the program and have maintained that general amount of weight loss ever since. My food plan between 2002 and 2008 changed a number of times; I went through a period where I tried to reincorporate wheat back into my diet (that didn’t go well) and I added back and took out caffeine & dairy too many times to count. 

 

From an early age I had a poor constitution – I was sick with bronchitis, ear infections, and other upper respiratory illnesses multiple times per year every year. I was hospitalized for pneumonia once and developed that disease multiple times in my life. If there was any type of illness going around, I was sure to catch it.

 

In 2008 I also started developing physical health issues. They were mild and seemingly random at first: heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and a frozen shoulder were the first things to occur and I took care of each of those through physical therapy. But then I was in a car accident late that year and after that the physical ailments started piling up. I was in and out of doctor’s offices and my journey to find better health began in earnest. After trying pain management, acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy, I started to look towards my diet with the first stop at an ayurvedic medicine clinic. That didn’t seem to help so I tried a vegetarian diet for 6 months. I didn’t notice any improvement, but I didn’t get worse so I went vegan. After about 6 months of being vegan, I felt considerably worse – to the point where I didn’t have the energy to get out of bed some days. It was around this time that a doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. I was also seeing a neurologist for an issue with frequent migraines and was put on a preventative medicine for those. My instincts told me to add animal products back to my diet and I felt better almost immediately after doing so, but I still didn’t feel as good as I thought I should for a woman in her 30s.

 

That period of trial and error lasted about 3 years and in 2011 I discovered the Paleo diet. I felt somewhat better following that plan, but I still had many physical issues as well as all my regular upper respiratory illnesses throughout the year and continued to seek solutions without success. Then in 2015 I was diagnosed with adult-onset asthma and began a regiment of medication for that disease. My frustration with all of my health issues really peaked here. I wasn’t sure what else I could try and basically decided that it was just my constitution – I thought I was just the type of person who was meant to get sick and frail at an early age. 

 

In late 2017 I had a hysterectomy, pelvic reconstructive surgery and a bladder sling put in. By mid 2018 I had gained at least 10 pounds (4.5 kg) and was feeling horrible physically. The urge incontinence the bladder sling was supposed to have fixed was still there, I had discomfort in my entire pelvic region, and I was exhausted. My menopausal symptoms also intensified: hot flashes & flushes, wild mood swings, swollen and painful breasts, vaginal dryness and discomfort. Once again, I decided to look at different food plans and began earnestly searching online. Thankfully, the ketogenic diet was gaining in popularity around this time and I came across some resources that seemed promising. I decided to try it. Those 10 pounds came off quickly and my husband was inspired to try the diet with me. He had much more weight to lose and rapidly lost 40 pounds, but was worried that we were going to give ourselves heart attacks with all the meat and fat we were eating. I found a low carb doctor in our area and made appointments to see him to help put my husband’s mind at ease. 

 

During that appointment, the doctor mentioned the carnivore diet – not as a suggestion, but in passing – and my first reaction was, “Who would want to do that??? I could never just eat meat. How boring!” When I went home, though, I began researching to see what the carnivore diet was all about and why people would go on it. I discovered a lot of online resources and began reading some of the success stories and started to wonder if a carnivorous diet could help me fix my health issues. By this time, I had been on keto for 2 months and although I felt pretty good (after the initial carb flu), I still was suffering from asthma pretty badly. I stewed on the idea for a couple of weeks and finally on October 18, 2018 decided to take the plunge for 30 days to see if a carnivore diet would help my asthma and fibromyalgia. I felt so good after 30 days that I decided to extend the trial to 90 days. And after 90 days, I felt even better so there was no reason for me to go back to eating any other way.

 

I have not taken asthma medication since late 2018. Right around two months after starting the carnivore diet I noticed my breathing was improving so I stopped my maintenance inhaler and decided to just use my rescue inhaler as needed. Well, I haven’t needed it. I also have not had any “fibro flares” in all this time. None!! I am no longer exhausted, achy, foggy-headed and miserable from that dreadful autoimmune condition. Another fibro-related issue I suffered from was IBS-type symptoms (I was never diagnosed with IBS nor did I ever mention those symptoms to a doctor). But I suffered from intermittent constipation and diarrhea as well as issues with gassiness for many years. After the initial adjustment to carnivore, those issues have gone away.

 

Since going carnivore, this girl who was deemed to have a poor constitution has had one mild cold. ONE! I no longer walk around in fear of contracting whatever the latest illness is that is going around. Additionally, sometime in the past 5 years or so I started developing cherry angiomas all over my body. My dad has a lot of these so I thought I just inherited that trait from him and there wasn’t much I could do about them except burn them off (shhh, don’t tell the dermatologist!). My husband asked me if I had burned off the ones on my back because he noticed they were gone. I had done no such thing – they had all disappeared on their own! I then realized that other ones I had in different areas were also gone. Every website I have read about cherry angiomas says the cause is unknown. Well, I still am not 100% certain of the cause, but I definitely know the cure. 

 

My urge incontinence has disappeared and I no longer feel the pressure and discomfort in my pelvic region that I did for the first year after my surgery. My menopausal issues have also mostly resolved (so far) since going carnivore. I no longer have hot flashes or flushes, my mood is stable, and I don’t suffer from vaginal dryness. I do still have some minor vaginal discomfort (which happened from the surgery) and breast tenderness, but both are issues that don’t affect me too much. 

 

On a different tack, but equally (or possibly even more) impactful than the health issues resolving is how the carnivore diet helped me to recognize my satiety point. Ever since joining a 12-step program for food addiction, I was basically taught that my satiety meter was broken and could not be fixed nor trusted. And I saw the truth in that while I was eating the traditional food plan that is followed by many in that organization. If I didn’t weigh and measure my meals, I could easily overeat at every meal. As I progressed in my recovery and felt safer not weighing or measuring my food while eating out, I noticed that I would often end up overfull after meals having eating more than my body needed. While I was eating, though, I had no signals that told me to stop eating. I could have easily kept going if I wasn’t being mindful and trying to eat reasonable portions. Eating carnivore, though, changed all that. It is just about impossible to overeat because my body physically won’t let me eat any more. I find I naturally lose interest in eating or put my fork down without even thinking about it. In extreme cases, I start to get nauseated as my body sends clear signals that it has had enough. This is something I don’t remember experiencing once in my entire life prior to eating a carnivorous diet. And as a recovering food addict, this is downright mind blowing and awe inspiring.

 

The carnivore diet has given me such a freedom – I thought I knew what freedom from food obsession was when I joined my 12-step recovery group, but the freedom I experience on a carnivore diet has surpassed that. It is a much more natural way of being and living and has brought my recovery from food addiction to the absolute next level. After almost 50 years of suffering with multiple types of health issues and resigning myself to getting old, sick, and frail, the carnivore diet has brought me a whole new hope and perspective. I now look forward to growing older and getting stronger and healthier as I go. I continue to see improvements in my physical and mental health all the time. I’m excited to see how much better things will get as I continue to regain health by eating an all-meat diet.

 

My pictures chronicle how I looked at my heaviest (prior to a 12-step program), then at a healthy weight but still with persistent health issues to today where I’m still at a healthy weight (although I’m continuing to lean out) – the biggest difference is now I’m healthy inside and out!

Amber improved her joint pain, and energy levels on a carnivore diet

Good Afternoon!

 
I wanted to submit my success story.
 
My name is Amber and I’m 32, 5’4 and 129#. Starting in 2014 I had been experiencing muscle weakness, joint pain, and neurological symptoms such as: numb hands, loss of feeling in my feet and the sides of my legs. I was also having trouble staying awake during normal functioning hours of the day. I switched from the S.A.D. in 2017 to a ketogenic diet, but mostly plant based (less than 25% meat). That helped initially, but I would still flare and have extreme symptoms. I noticed during my worst flare in April 2019 that the flare directly followed a stir-fry vegetarian meal high in greens, seeds, tofu, and olive oil to cook in.  I was sick for months with numbness and joint paint, which led me to discover the existence of oxalates and the anti-inflammatory nature of the ketogenic carnivore lifestyle. In Sept I went full carnivore: Beef, lamb, organs, bone marrow, tallow, suet, etc. Within 14 days the numbness in my hands was resolved and within a month the remainder of the numbness was gone. Now 4 months in I have minimal joint paint and my gait is unaltered. I have outstanding energy, mental clarity, and a true lust for life I’ve not had since my teenage years. Thank you carnivore diet and all the carnivore doctors and pioneers for showing me the light! 
 

Thanks in Advance!

Joel improved his chron’s disease, skin, energy and fitness on a carnivore diet

Joel finds relief from Crohn’s disease on a diet of primarily red meat

 

I was raised in a small agricultural town on a standard American diet including plenty of local fruits and vegetables.  Although I was eating similarly to my family and peers, I started to see signs of poor digestive function in early adolescence.  These included severe heartburn, IBS, and abdominal pain. I also experienced poor skin health, poor circulation, low energy, and poor emotional regulation.

 

In my early 20s, the gut pain became more intense and widespread.  In an attempt to stop it, I was driven to experiment with various diets and ways of eating, some of which were effective in reducing the pain.  Unfortunately, I could not adhere to those ways of eating without soon feeling weak and lethargic, or seeing other health issues arise. I would always revert back to a standard American diet.

 

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 28, and was prescribed medication to reduce gut inflammation.  This helped, but not in reducing my other digestive issues, such as heartburn and IBS. The thought of taking medication and nutritional supplements every day for the rest of my life, only to have slight relief from the pain, and no cure in sight, left me feeling hopeless.  But I am a free thinker, and my desire to learn the truth about nature led me to discover a diet that could help me – potentially cure me of disease.

 

In December 2017, I heard Dr. Shawn Baker on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast talking about the potential health benefits of eating a carnivore diet, particularly in people with autoimmune conditions such as Crohn’s disease.  In that moment, I committed to stop taking medications and supplements, stop eating plant foods, and begin eating an animal-based diet – and the relief from the pain and inflammation was immediate. In just a few months, my heartburn was gone, my skin was noticeably smoother, and my stools were taking shape.  

 

After two years on a red meat heavy diet, at age 36, I rarely feel even the slightest abdominal pain.  And as a bonus, my fitness has improved greatly. I’m convinced. I’m a carnivore.

Vlad manages his type 1 diabetes on a carnivore diet

Hello,

my name is Vlad, I’m a 41yo type 1 diabetic.
 
I was diagnosed in January 2018 and hospitalized in ER as I was in keto acidosis with a a1c of 11.7, 329 blood glucose and just below normal level c peptide. I was immediately hooked to a “minibar” with insulin and vitamines. This diagnose came like a relief as finally I knew why my life and my family’s life was a nightmare the months before. I was loosing weight, I was very tired all the time and most disturbing, I was always angry and sometimes violent, I lost short term memory and it was very hard to focus. 
 
The first meal I was served in the hospital was a plate with boiled potatoes, white bread and a chicken leg. I did not eat it. I immediately started researching online and against my doctor’s and my mother’s recommendations I just stoped eating carbohydrates. When I left the hospital I was recommended 250g of carbs daily and a total of 34 units of insulin. Luckily I got very strong support from my wife and my mother, it was very hard for her since she was a doctor trained in the late 70’s. Also, ironically, today is a good time to be diabetic since there are many very good sources of informations, success stories and facebook groups to get informations and advice. 
 
Just six months later we visited Budapest and scheduled a meeting with Dr. Toth Csaba at Paleomedicina office. It was a very convincing discussion and we left the office optimistic and curious how an only meat and fat diet could improve my condition. Once home we started to implement the diet, we changed the shopping and cooking routines and in the next months I noticed obvious improvements under palaeolithic ketogenic diet compared with the previous period when I was on a classic ketogenic diet. I gain muscle, strength, mood and memory were better and in just three months I was able to stop one of the insulins. Over time I did mistakes and miscalculations and after a while I had some digestive problems and we did not notice any progress.
 
This fall I scheduled a place for me at one of Paleomedicina patient events. After two day of o measurements and observations they stopped my insulin. I felt completely safe under Dr. Toth close observation but I have to admit that I was not confident at all that I could manage without insulin. The first days were very hard as I felt a bit sick and very lethargic but one morning it was just a bit better. Since then I can only notice improvements, I feel normal, I have normal levels of energy all day long, I can focus, I only have small and normal digestive problems and only if I overeat. Overall I feel much more balanced and I am better without insulin than with insulin. Almost every morning I wake up with blood sugars below 80 and the highest post prandial blood sugar was 124 mg/dl. And that meal included half of tea spoon of raw honey, just because I wanted to test the limit and because honey is pkd accepted.
 
Today is my 58th day as a type 1 diabetic without any insulin at all and eating only meat, fat, organs and eggs in precise quantities tailored by Dr. Toth Csaba and Dr. Zsofia Clemens

Nichole improved her energy and lost weight on a carnivore diet

This diet saving me is an understatement. I am blown away about how unhealthy I was. I didn’t have energy and I was following the gluten free diet, taking thyroid medication, vitamins and exercising. Yet knew something was still so wrong. My joints still ached, unable to think as clearly, or lose weight. When I saw a friend’s transformation I knew I had nothing to lose as I was doing all I was supposed too. The picture on the left is July 2018. The picture on the right November 28th 2019. The misconceptions I’ve heard about “these carnivore people may look healthy on the outside.” You’re kidding me! Planning to stay stricter on it and see if I can get off my thyroid medication as some have.

Keep up the great work Shawn!!
