John improved hypothyroidism and inflammation on a carnivore diet

It’s 18 months to the day that I’ve been doing the Carnivore diet and I’ve never felt better!  Here are before and after pics which you can clearly see a difference!  I’ve lost about 30 pounds between these pictures. 

More than that though, I have had many other health benefits!  For about 12 years I have taken two sets of thyroid medicine for hypothyroidism.  I have eliminated one of those pills and decreased the other by over 50% since being Carnivore!  That baffles my Vegan Endocrinologist haha!  I also used to get 2-3 dry spots a year on my body called psoriasis rosea which  is a lesser form of eczema.  I have not had a single dry spot on my skin the last 18 months!  I also used to have these dry little bumps on the back of my triceps from dry skin and no matter how much lotion i used they would always be there.  I haven’t had those either in 18 months!  I used to take 400-800 mg of ibuprofen nearly daily due to back and neck pain and join pain in my knees or elbows from my workouts and two knee surgeries.  I now take no pain meds at all and never feel any of those pains since being on Carnivore!  Inflammation is down as well and i only get inflammation when i cheat and eat any sweets.  

This has been the best for me in so many ways!  Also I have had 4 full blood panel physicals and nothing abnormal.  My total cholesterol ratio is actually better than pre-carnivore!  I take no supplements and people are surprised when they ask me what other supplements or vitamins I take when I say I taken nothing!  The only reason you need a supplement is because you are deficient somewhere.  No deficiency when eating meat!!  

Thanks Dr Baker you are an inspiration and your book is amazing!

  1. John, congratulations! It’s always great to hear that carnivore cures darn near everything.

    What’s you diet consist of mainly, as there are a wide variety of C diets, everything from only steak and salt and water to lots of different meats, organ meats, cheese, dairy, eggs, fish etc.?

    I’m pretty much ground beef, a little fish, lots of eggs and sauerkraut for the last month or so and seeing great weight loss and great skin improvement.

    I’m glad to see people hanging in there for the long term!

    1. Thanks Bob. My diet is Ribeyes, Filet’s, Grilled Chicken, Pork, Sirloin Tips, Burgers or Ground beef, eggs, bacon, cheese sometimes i think that’s everything. So i just vary it up amongst these items. Only season any of this w salt that’s it. Fish is good but my body wants meat and chicken more as there are more nutrients in meat than fish and my body feels stronger, more energized, and full w meat compared to fish. Never felt better in my life!

  2. John – Congrats on drastically improving your thyroid function & health! Do you recall how many months in your thyroid numbers improved? Do you know if your t4 to t3 conversion improved? Meat is a good source of zinc & selenium, which are crucial for thyroid synthesis, so can see how it would help. I am getting started again with carnivore & hoping for results as phenomenal as yours for my thyroid & health! Thank you for sharing!
