My name is Michael, for 20 years I struggled with a series of health problems such as obesity, asthma, eczema, dandruff, joint pain, low energy levels, weak immune system and inflammatory bowel disease. My doctors prescribed puffers, steroids, pills and orthotics to mask these issues without ever attempting to address the root cause. I tried for years to find the root cause by cleaning up my diet with a plant based approach yet things only became worse and I was convinced that I was destined to be obese and sedentary.
Four years ago I began intermittent fasting and lost over 20 lbs but plateaued due to my poor diet, I then began a keto diet and lost another 15 lbs but again plateaued because I found myself consuming high amounts of vegetable/seed oils, sweet keto snacks and leafy greens that I could not properly digest. In December 2019 I began the carnivore diet and saw amazing results immediately, my energy levels skyrocketed, skin cleared up, joint pain vanished and my digestion regulated for the first time in my life. After a few weeks my consuming addiction to sugar went away and the visceral fat around my belly disappeared. In total I lost 80 lbs through this journey and at 40 years old I feel better physically than I did in my teens and twenties. I want to use my knowledge and experience to help people with similar problems achieve the amazing success that I have found!
