Hi Dr Baker and team,
Here is my story.
4 months ago I was a 312lbs alcoholic. I was on antidepressants and had sleep apnoea. I was killing myself. I knew that I needed a change. I had tried switching to vegan of all things to lose weight the month prior but I just never felt right on it; I had low energy, figuring out my macros consumed a lot of my time and no matter how I altered the diet, I was always hungry. It was as I was about to give up that I saw the transformations of the Bell brothers and saw you on the Joe Rogan podcast. Even though at first I thought carnivore sounded crazy, I eventually realized it couldnt be crazier than the way I was killing myself with how I was already eating. I decided to jump in head first and commit. I lost 15lbs in the first couple weeks, my energy improved and I finally felt capable of getting back to the gym (something I loved before I wrecked my body and health with food and alcohol). This is when I started seeing enormous changes in my body composition. By the end of the second month I was down more than 40lbs and felt amazing.
Here I am a little over 4 months in, I am down to 235lbs, wearing a smaller pant size than I did when I played college baseball and have completely altered my body. I have drastically increased my lean muscle mass and I feel like a completely different person. I stand today 133 days sober, entirely free of medication, no more sleep apnoea, more mental clarity than I have ever had and living my life to the fullest. Not only did you and the carnivore diet get me in better shape, but you quite literally saved my life. Thank you for all that you do

Hi Dr Baker,
I wanted to take a second to tell you my success story with the carnivore diet. In my early years I was an elite level baseball player, playing division 1 NCAA ball as a right handed pitcher. After my playing career, I yo-yo’d up and down in weight and could never find something that worked. I had tried all the restrictive calorie diets, even going vegan for a while but just couldn’t stick with anything because I was always starving. It wasnt until I started a carnivore diet that I saw real success. The last 3 months I have been eating a red meat heavy carnivore style diet, I gave up alcohol, and i am diligent with my workouts. I have gone from 307lbs to 240lbs and drastically increased my lean muscle mass. Thanks to outside of the box thinking and throwing out the social concept of demonizing red meat, I have never felt healthier and my energy in all aspects of my life shows it. Thank you for being the voice for this important movement.
