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!

Kiki is healing from weakness, low thyroid, inflammation on carnivore diet

My name is Kiki.

I have been eating a carnivore diet of 90% beef since March 2018.

 

I eat 2 meals a day of 1 lb. of beef each meal.

 

I usually eat my meals at 11am and 6pm.

 

I eat when hungry.  I always eat to satiety. I do not limit meal size or calories. 

 

I supplement with salt. 

 

I do not test ketones, use a food app, or weigh myself. 

 

I was a 35-year vegetarian and during that time often vegan.

 

I was very attached to my vegetarian way of life and the belief system that I was eating the ideal health diet while contributing to a better planet and global future having been inspired by many popular vegetarian and vegan books of that time. 

 

I have been involved in Yoga since I was 19 years old, for nearly 40 years now. This dedicated practice as well as decades of Yoga teaching Рwith more than a dozen study trips to vegetarian South India over a 20-year period Рkept me tied to vegetarianism as part of a spiritual belief system and the supposed foundation for luminous health. Simultaneously I embraced a strongly pushed vegetarian propaganda that meat eating and animal farming were causes of global disease and global destruction. These are ideas that most vegetarians accept without question and sacrificing all logic. 

 

I have always been highly physically active – from a competitive runner in high school, professional dancer and actress and an intensely dedicated yoga practitioner – waking at 3am and doing 2-3 hours of intense and advanced yoga asanas for decades while running a yoga school, directing yoga programs and teaching world wide and with a roster of celebrity clients as well as creating yoga programming for individuals and communities with MS, Spinal Cord Injury, disabilities, and vets with PTSD.

 

 

 

 

 

From the age of my late 30’s, I began to develop more and more digestive problems (swinging from constipation to loose stools) and kept trying to address this through shifting how I ate a vegetarian diet Рfrom cooked, to raw, to Ayurvedic to macrobiotic to vegan. As well as adding herbs, superfoods, supplements etc. I also developed increasing chemical sensitivities to paint, chemicals, and cologne leading to rashes, flushed skin, and stomach upset.

From being uniquely strong and high energy, I began to develop more and more body pain and stiffness. When I would travel to India – for the first ten years, I would always become more strong and flexible and focussed. But this eventually changed. Rather I would almost instantly have more pain and terrible inflammation. I thought it was due to the intensify of yoga practices, along with so called ‚Äúover use syndrome‚ÄĚ – but now in retrospect I see it was legumes, cereal grains, and toxic plant compounds. I cannot tolerate these at all today.¬†

 

My health continued to plummet with B12 anaemia that included visual and auditory hallucinations, fainting, intense brain fog, and extreme exhaustion I was also extremely deficient in most B vitamins and vitamin D (and yes, I supplemented with B12 for decades)

 

For nearly 10 years leading up to my carnivore diet change, I needed to soak in a hot bath everyday to begin to move. I got weekly massages as well as weekly acupuncture and was usually getting an additional kind of therapeutic healing like fascial release sessions, chiropractics, Somatics, barefoot movement and the list goes on. All this to manage 24-hour pain and to just get through my week. 

 

A looming crisis of faith along with my determination to beat these health concerns and a belief that we can heal ourselves (and that I could reverse my situation and thrive) with food choices led me to deeply research Weston A. Price, bone broth, Ketogenics, paleo, zero carb and I found my way to the Low Carb Down Under, Ancestral Health and other presentations where I learned from Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Georgia Ede, Sally K. Norton, and so many others whose research I embraced to completely heal. Several Facebook groups like Principia Carnivora, Women’s Carnivore Tribe and Vegan and Vegetarian Recovery offered a great deal of community support. I also listened to every Human Outliers Podcast for a year.

I am so grateful to this Carnivore community and to all those that are participating in research and spreading the word on Carnivore, ultra low carb, zero carb and plant-free lifestyles. 

Today I have more vitality than I could have imagined. I feel that I have turned back the clock 20 years (years that were lost to me due to pain and exhaustion). Just a few months ago I registered a Guinness Book of World Records for the Longest Held Downward Dog Pose at 1 hour and 20 seconds. I have taken up kettle bells as well as other athletic and optimal development practices. 

 

My hair and nails are thick and growing. My skin is smooth and my body is lean and toned. I am strong and energetic. I recently moved onto my sailboat and am living a sailing life (this would have been  physically impossible 2 years ago). 

 

 

 

All  the health concerns listed below have disappeared except for some remaining tinnitus, occasional insomnia as well as sensitivity with minor rashes and some low back pain when I eat off plan (which includes a few animal foods I cannot tolerate like pork, dairy and eggs).

 

 

 

The List:

20 years of intensifying body aches

24-hour pain

Very cold hands and feet all year around

Cold all the time.

Intense exhaustion

Injuries not healing

Rashes

Chemical sensitivities

Weakness, extreme stiffness

Difficulty in walking – hip inflammation – sciatica like pain

Tinnitus

Swollen and seeping ears

B12 anaemia (hallucinations, fearfulness, fainting)

Anxiety (I did not know I had this until it was gone) I had accepted this mind state as normal. 

Superstitious 

Paranoid

Sadness / very emotional

Low thyroid (I took a medication which I no longer need)

Weak nails

Slow growing hair

Some hair receding 

Extreme tinnitus 

Insomnia

Racing thoughts and sleeplessness

Digestive concerns – constipation to loose stools

Some weight gain that I could not control with accompanied inflammation and sudden cellulite and skin dimpling (2 years prior and leading up to Carnivore change)

Non-motivated to exercise 

Constant need to nap

Wanting to sleep all the time 

Brain fog

Uninspired

Gnawing hunger

An all encompassing fear of losing my community and being judged.

Trudy improved sleep, fitness, and pain on a carnivore fasting lifestyle

Hi my name is Trudy, 59 years old, 5’7″ and weigh around 125 lbs.  At one point in my life not that long ago, I weighed over 160 lbs, was sluggish, full of inflammation, stressed and strung out.

I have been a Fasting Carnivore since September 2019, and have experimented fasting off and on most of my life. I have tried many different avenues over the years including Weight Watchers, Nutri-system, Body for Life, Protein Drinks, Elimination Diets, Whole 30, whole food juicing, Paleo, then Keto.¬† Before Keto, I couldn’t make a weight loss stick, ever.¬† During my Keto journey, I was learning and growing from listening to several podcasts of Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Ken Berry, Dr. Jason Fung. I also found some women carnivores that inspired me, including Dr. Lisa Wiedeman, Laura Spath, Kelly Hogan, and the Strong Sistas, to try Carnivore.¬† I wanted to see if I could heal my back pain.

The health struggles I have had in the past include: food & environmental allergies, disordered eating, aggressive cataracts, L4-L5 compression, stenosis, sciatic pain, high blood pressure, anemia, food addictions, yo-yo weight gains, brain fog, inflammation, joint pain, oily skin, stringy hair, weak nails, and much more.

Most of my issues have resolved or significantly reduced since transitioning into the Fasting Carnivore lifestyle. A recent visit to the eye doctor was a report that my aggressive cataracts had not grown since last year. My skin, hair and nails are SO much healthier & stronger. My environmental¬†allergies¬†are gone. I even have my daughter’s cat living with me for the summer &¬† haven’t had one itchy eye or sneeze and I have had him for over a month.¬† I have been told I don’t look or act 59 years old.¬† I love adventure and working out.¬† I may not be a competitive athlete anymore (ok, I do dabble in running, biking, and triathlons but I don’t consider myself fast).¬† Even so, I love how strong & active I am today.¬† My grandkids and my daughters will always have my example to look back on some day.¬† I am SO thankful for this lifestyle and Dr. Baker’s leadership to help change people’s lives for the better.

My most recent success was a 21 day fast that I completed.  It was an experiment to reset my body and to research the effects of autophagy to see if I could improve the level of pain in my lower back.  You see I kept waking up at night to the point I could barely roll over.  

So, the 21 days included 3 day water fasting only, then the other 18 days I followed a fasting mimicking fat fast where I only ate up to 500 calories daily of bone broth and/or raw beef suet.¬† I had heard coaches Niti and Raymond discussing Niti’s experience with such a fast.¬† I had never heard of such a thing as getting to eat while fasting!! The timing with the world pandemic going on around me and the fact that I love being my own experiment, well it was just the¬†challenge I needed. I learned something new for sure and I found out how long and how hard I could go.¬† I even lost 16 pounds over the course of the 21 days.

By about day 8 I was sleeping better and through out most of these 21 days my energy was out the roof.  I got SO much $^&#% done and ran, biked, or walked daily.  I had an interesting experience of a huge clean out on about day 9 which seemed crazy.  It must have been an oxalate dumping for I had not ingested enough food for what cleaned out of me. Whatever my body was holding onto, I was glad that this experiment helped recycle some old and damaged cells out of my body.  The only downer was I got a huge suet aversion by about day 18 which made the last few days tough to complete.  I substituted pork belly and more beef bone broth instead of the suet.

I biked 4 times (34-61 km each time), ran 7 times (5-12 km each time), and walked daily (2-5 km) in the fasted state.  I also did push ups and tri-cep dips on run days.  So, I lost weight, got some lower back pain relief, and a peace & calm came over me that quieted the old addictive behaviour tendencies that I had struggled with in the past.  Eating fat definitely is something I learned my body wanted me to do and I operated efficiently. I feel amazing, sleep soundly (and don’t need as much sleep) and am happier, healthier and calmer than ever before.  At the end of the 21 days, I knew I was done for my energy levels were becoming depleted and I found my workouts were harder to do and I was just feeling fatigued.

Overall, would I do it again? Maybe, and with a daily check in with a coach, I might.  Raymond helped me daily on the after noon social call, I was able to check in and bounce my experience off him daily which was a huge help & encouragement. 

The Radical Fasting Carnivore,

Trudy
