BNS lost weight, improved his digestion, mouth ulcers, hair and frequent colds on a carnivore diet

Hey Guys, My name is BNS SRINIVAS ( The Indian Carnivore )
 
To begin with, I am from India. In India, it is extremely hard to get authentic information regarding health. Fortunately, I found a channel named “Impact Theory” on youtube where the host ‘Tom Bilyeu’ interviews many successful people around the world including well-renowned health experts. This is how I have first got to know about Dr.Ken Berry! Also, by then, I have had read over 100 books and decided to read Ken Berry’s book “Lies my Doctor told me.” Shortly after that, I have had the opportunity to interview Dr.Ken and started the High Fat Low Carb diet where I eat mainly Meat and some rice. Also, at that time I have heard Ken Berry talking about SHAWN BAKER! That’s the moment when I really started to delve deeply into the “CARNIVORE DIET“. When I have heard about it, I was extremely happy because, since childhood, I liked to eat only Meat. My friends in the school used to call me the MEAT BOY. Anyway, moving forward to the present, I convinced my Grandmother, Mother, Father, and Sister to go on a Carnivorish diet and after a prolonged persuasion, they finally obliged! Up until January, I have lost 20 pounds by shifting mainly to a meat-heavy diet. But after going 100% carnivore in January as a part of the world carnivore month initiative of Meatrx, I have lost more than 25 pounds in January alone. As of today, I have lost more than 48.6 pounds and feeling great.
 
Meatrx platform has given me the opportunity to meet fellow carnivores and constantly update my knowledge levels. Also, this platform has helped me to forge deeper relationships with people like TracyJustin, Leah, NitiBali, Raymond and Brett, etc. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Shawn Baker and Meatrx platform!
 
In summary
Health-related issues I used to have:
1) Overweight 
2) Bloating
3) Snoring
4) Mouth ulcers
5) Hairfall
6) Burping
7) Frequent cold
 
Benefits I have observed after shifting to the carnivore diet:
 
1) Weight loss (48.5 pounds)
2) No snoring
3) No burping
4) Not a single mouth ulcer
5) Hairfall stopped
6) Abs are visible (without any exercise :p)
7) Mental clarity 
8) Able to maintain energy without eating frequently 
9) Muscle gain
10) Many more…
 
Benefits my Family members have observed:
 
Grandmother: Increased Energy levels, reduced joint pains, better vision and losing fat.
Father: T2D is improving, blood glucose levels are stable, losing visceral fat and experiencing better sleep.
Mother: No more joint pains, No more plantar fasciitis, Increased Energy levels.

John improved his blood pressure, eye sight, joint pain and allergies on a carnivore diet

Hey Shawn,
     I just turned 70 last November 9th and I’ve been feeling pretty good especially since going 100% carnivore for about 2 months now, been on a keto type diet for over a year, feel better, had some histamine issues. I literally became allergic to all food except meat, even had to get some steroid shots. I listen to Joe Rogan a lot and learned a lot about eating carnivore, especially when you were on, and from Jordan Peterson and his daughter both. I have macular degeneration, especially in my left eye, was starting to get pretty bad. Anyways I read an article where this man who got his 78 year old mother with macular degeneration, to go carnivore. She was blind in the left eye and the right eye was pretty getting pretty useless. She ate carnivore and at six months most of her eye sight came back in her left eye, and her right eye is improving also. She can now read a book which she hasn’t been able to do in seven years. I’m gonna stick to meat and eggs only, been 100% on it and see what happens. Makes sense to me, seems to help every aspect of your body and health. So far high blood pressure has disappeared, my joints are almost pain free, my skin has improved and all the skin tags on my neck have dropped off, and lost around 15 pounds since starting, and I have the flattest stomach I’ve ever had since I was 25 or so. Another big plus, my histamine and allergic issues are gone, and my eye sight is improving. Oh, like I said, I just turned 70, and according to Joe Rogan, guys my age on suppose to be almost at deaths door, ha! I feel as he’s getting older he’s changing his mind on that one. I’ve been working out since I was 22 and still going. Sending a pic of my 70 year old self,  you can see I’m not ready to go yet. Thanks for your book, love it. I’ll let you know how my eyes are progressing as time goes on, got my eye doctor appointment in June, can’t wait for that one. I got a good feeling about this one, so far so good.

Jurriaan improved his mood, sleep, energy, pain and skin on a carnivore diet

Hi Shawn, first of all I wanted to thank you! The way you look at health has inspired me in my work as a personal trainer.
 
My name is Jurriaan and I am 32 years old. I’m from the Netherlands.
 
 I’ve been struggeling with my health for many years. After a period of plant-based diet I lost so much muscle. I was depressed, had low libido for years, couldn’t work out anymore, had anxienty, insomnia, problem with coordination, chronic fatigue, raynaud syndrom, neckpain, backpain, pain in hips, hairloss, ringing ears, social anxiety, blurry vision, candida and the list goes on! 
 
In december 2018 I saw you on the rogan show. After that I started eating more and more meat but I was still eating the ‘magical’ brocolli. The 21st of February 2019 I started a 100% carnivore diet and that is now exactly one year ago. I wanted to let you know that I feel awesome! After years of depression I now am happy and healthy again! I feel calm and mentally clear. I can lift heavy weights again and I found back joy in my work as a personal trainer and coach. 
 
Shawn, in my eyes what you are doing is really brave. You are at the other side of the world, but it feels like you are standing right beside me and all the other people who are struggeling with their health. That to me is a super power! 
 
Now that I found my strength and feel healthy again I hope I can help others find theirs.

Heidi was a vegetarian and suffered with heart pounding, dizziness, shortness of breath, poor energy and improved all of her symptoms on a carnivore diet

Hello Dr Baker: 

 
I was a vegetarian for 20 some years, from my late 20’s to 50 years of age when my health suddenly crashed, seemingly overnight. Stomach pain, heart pounding, dizziness, shortness of breath, dry mouth, itching watery eyes, broken capillaries, “brain buzz,” mouth burning & itching, physical weakness and shakiness, night sweats. Symptoms were the worst at night so sleep was a distant memory. I had been physically active all my life, but as I was unable to eat or sleep I became weaker and weaker having barely enough energy to do the essentials. Unable to work, had to close my business and lost everything. Doctors gave me hormones, antacids, and tranquilizers. So called “Wholistic” doctors just wanted to sell me the supplements they have stocked in their back rooms. It took me 8 years to figure out that ALL my symptoms were related to food. (These were the years before everyone had a PC so information was difficult to find)
 
Don’t want to bore you with all the horrid details, but over the last 20 years (I am 70) I slowly added meat to my diet, but being as brainwashed as I was about all those healthy fruit and veggies, I actually thought I was hurting myself if I left them out. When I came upon your YT channel I finally had the courage to stop all but meat and eggs. I still occasionally have some stomach ulcer pain, but it’s mild and digestive enzymes help. My gallbladder pain is totally gone along with the rest of my symptoms. I sleep well and have adequate energy.  
 
Thank you for your dedication to health and for going against the stream. 
Heidi

Heath lost weight improved his blood pressure, tendinitis, dandruff and hemorrhoids on a carnivore diet

Dr. Baker,
I follow you on YouTube and Facebook and want to thank you for promoting this life changing way of eating.  
I started a keto diet 16 months ago at 57 years old with the last 6 months or so primarily carnivore. 
I previously was pre-diabetic with metabolic syndrome. High blood pressure , severe tendinitis in my arm, dandruff and even hemorrhoids.  I generally felt like sh-t!
Within 5 months i lost 65 lbs and have maintained my weight loss while gaining lean mass until now.  
All of my health issues have reversed !  My blood sugar and pressure are normal. My post prandial sugar level two hours after eating dinner is 84!
I started working out again, lifting heavier than ever and am continuing to build lean mass.  I genuinely am in better shape and feel better at 58 than 28!  My energy levels are insane and no longer even need an alarm clock to awaken in the AM. Here is a pic of me at 28, in 2015, 2018 and 2020.
Keep the videos coming and continue to spread the good word – god bless!

Raymond lost weight, improved his pre-diabetes, digestion, eyesight, brain fog, sleep on a carnivore diet

My name is Raymond. I am 5 foot 11 inches and weigh about 185 pounds.  At my heaviest, I weighed 252 pounds and waist size of 44.

 

I have been a carnivore since September 15, 2017.  Looking back now 2 years 5 months later, I am so glad I made that decision.

 

I had many health issues, including pre-diabetes, plantar fasciitis, rosacea, mid-back pain, arthritic knee and finger joints, heel spurs, poor libido, high triglycerides, low HDL, pre-hypertensive  blood pressure, snoring, dandruff, acne, diminishing eyesight, poor wound healing, irritable bowel disease, chronic constipation, hemorrhoids, constant brain fog, insomnia and more.

I felt so bad that there was a point during one of my IBD flare ups, that I was wondering how will I make another 5 years with feeling so awful. Every year it seemed that all my symptoms kept getting worse. I remember when it all started when I was 35 years old and that was the point I could not lose weight anymore. By the time I was 40, I was spending around 30 min to 1 hour 3 times per day in the bathroom. I was highly constipated, I would have leg numbness every time I came out of the bathroom.

I would spend a lot of time thinking of food and I had a insatiable appetite. I would often go out to eat with friends and if they had anything leftover on their plate, I would ask if I could eat their leftovers. I would also do that with my family. I ate around 5 or 6 times per day.

 

My Diet prior to carnivore was sugary cereals, microwave foods, hungryman, chimichangas, lasagna. I ate a lot of fast foods, Burger King, Subway. I also drank from one to two liters of pepsi per day, I also drank sweet tea, juices, etc.. I avoided water.

In the past, I was always searching for this “magic pill” to treat my many different ailments. I tried all kinds of detoxes, supplements, homeopathic, herbals, juice fasts, I even did 1 week of veganism, that was hell. Most of these had a short term effect but it would never last.

In my youth I was a typical youth that played football, baseball, basketball, ran track, tennis and any sports that I could get my hands on. I also got into weightlifting, all this began diminishing and at 35 was my last foray into weightlifting and I gave that up in 2 months.

 

I never knew how much of a carbohydrate/sugar addict I was, until researching other’s going through the same thing. That is what gave me the resolve to go through the carnivore diet and treating it like an addiction. I never knew that I could be that guy that can now eat every other day, hardly think about food, able to do incredible feats that seem to get better the longer I am on the diet.

 

Current diet is meat and cheese. I took away cheese this January, thanks in part to the Meatrx community that showed me how much impaired many other carnivores are with dairy. In that process it seems that I am getting rid of my remaining issues. I am still experimenting.

Last year I did an experiment for 6 months of alternate day eating then for the last 3 months I added 2 days a week of no food. I will be repeating this experiment again learning from the errors of last year. For example I constantly had cold extremities but I think I figured out a way around that this year.

 

In less than 2 years, the carnivore diet helped me heal completely, or put into remission, most of these ailments. Some have not fully resolved, like dandruff, acne, heel spurs, but they are drastically less and even more so now that I quit dairy.

 

Not only do I have less ailments, but I also have much more energy and strength. I can do so much now. After carnivore I joined karate and jiujitsu. I do my workouts at Orange Theory (HIIT training). I started hiking and love it. Because the pain is gone and my energy has increased, a world of activates have opened to me that I never enjoyed before.

I have run a 5k, 10k, and a 10 miler so far with just Orange Theory as training. I can do 50 consecutive pushups. I can now run a 7-minute mile. As a side benefit, I gained a 6 pack.
