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!

Jeff is a busy division 1 basketball referee who grew up in Illinois.

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.
