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!

Grant no longer has ulcerative colitis symptoms on a carnivore diet

Hello,

My name is Grant Marceau,
 
I am a 34yr old male living in Australia on the south coast of New South Wales in wollongong. My father had bowel cancer and Ulcerative Colitis and passed away in 2010. 
I was 90kg and very chubby as im 5 foot 7 inches tall.
 
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2013 and was in hospital for 3 weeks. During my stay in hospital it took a while for the medications to take control of the ulcers in my colon, and at one point the doctors where deciding if they would remove my large intestine completely.
Fortunately the medications started to work and i managed to get out without surgery.
 
After hospital i slowly but surely got my health back on track trying to eat well and exercise regularly. I was taking a whole heap of medications as well.
 It wasn’t until i started doing personal training sessions in 2016 at my local gym that i really started feeling good, and i truly believe that it was because of the food he told me to eat. The diet he prescribed was your basic meat and 3 veg diet, which i stuck to, eating lots of protein and low carb vegetables. I lost 10kg 
At the time i didn’t really appreciate how much the food changed my life. I made the mistake of thinking i had done the hard work and went back to my old ways. Before i knew it i had put half the weight back on and started feeling bloated again. But i did nothing about it and just accepted that this is what life would be like for me with this disease.
 
Fast forward to this year where i met another personal trainer and learned about the carnivore diet. After doing alot of research online about the diet, Shawn Baker and a few other people that make videos for you tube, i decided to give the diet a really good go and stick to a solid training regime. 
For the first 3 weeks of the carnivore diet i felt terrible, but i had done the research and knew that this was normal. In week 4 something changed and i immediately felt amazing, the diarrhea and headaches stopped and felt like i could climb a mountain.
 
I have now been on a very strict carnivore diet for 7 months with the occasional keto friendly salad. Very limited Alcohol. My doctors have given me regular blood tests and i had an ultrasound on my organs, all the results were A ok.
 
 I have been training 7 days a week and sometimes twice a day. Im down to 72kg and have been that way for a while. My body fat has vanished, i feel amazing and have so much energy. I don’t even feel like i have a disease anymore. My fitness has gone to the next level with this diet and i cant thankyou guys enough for the work you do. 
 
Im doing so well that i have qualified for the trials of the next season of Ninja Warrior Australia 5. This is definitely part of my story for the show and hopefully i can make it on tv and help you guys spread the message about carbs and sugar being so bad for people. Im a chef as well and would really like to educate people on how to eat real food and cook for themselves. 
 
Cheers,
Grant M

Leandro treated his rheumatoid arthritis on a carnivore diet

Leandro suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for years relying on Dr. perscribed medication to make it through a single day of work.

 

When Leandro moved, there was a delay in having his prescription filled.  He was told he would need to wait for two weeks for his medication to be ready.  Not knowing how he was going to deal with the pain for that long he ended up reading about the carnivore diet.

 

That decision changed everything.  Leandro never picked up his medication and has been pain free for over three years!

Jeff is now in control of his sugar cravings on a Carnivore diet

Jeff is a busy division 1 basketball referee who grew up in Illinois.  He grew up eating the standard American diet which consisted mostly of junk food, Doritos, fries, cakes….not only did he eat these things, he ate large volumes of them at a time and didn’t even realize it wasn’t good for him.  His weight climbed to 260 lbs.

 

 

Jeff started the keto diet and spent his time chasing ketones until he heard about the carnivore diet on the Joe Rogan post cast with Dr. Shawn Baker (link below) and changed the way he eats.

 

 

Jeff lost weight, felt stronger and is in control of his sugar and carbohydrate cravings after making the switch.  He felt so amazing that he became a Certified Carnivore Coach so that he can help others make an educated decision on their health.

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.

Emily improved her bursitis and had a healthy pregnancy on a carnivore diet

Emily started to experience pain as a teenager.  She went to several doctors who either didn’t know what was wrong with her or just put her on medications.  She was inflamed and couldn’t keep up with other kids her age.  

 

Emily grew up on a farm eating her vegetables and meat.  As the pain became worse, she started to eat junk food which made her feel more tired and led to feelings of depression.

 

Her dad became interested in the keto diet and suggested that Emily and her now husband give it a try.  Emily’s partner quickly lost weight and felt great but Emily didn’t have the same success.  She lost a bit of weight but her pain did not change.

 

When Emily became pregnant, she started to read more about the carnivore diet.  About half way through her pregnancy she gave it a try and within the first week she was able to start exercising and the pain she had felt most of her life started to improve.  She continued with carnivore and had a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.

 

Emily is so happy with her success that she is now a certified MeatRx.com coach who wants to help improve other people with their health!
