Hi, My name is Valerie. After many years of yo-yo diets and going vegan and trying to detox with smoothies and juices and giving birth to two beautiful human beings, I stressed my body out to the max.
All of that journey brought me to a low point were I was depressed, anxious and obese. I was borderline diabetic and my PCOS was keeping me from menstruating without the help of medication. My IBS turned into IBD with symptoms sending me to the hospital. I was discovering problems that were minor growing to effect me in my every day life and the doctors told me it was just something I had to get use to.
After all this, I really wanted to take a step back and look at what was making it all happen. I started to notice sensitivity to large groups of vegetables. It started with grains like quinoa, then legumes like chick peas and black beans, and night shade vegetables like potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant. Signs of autoimmune disorders were starting to pop up. I started cutting out everything I could from my diet in hopes to have some improvement of my symptoms. That lead me to learning about fasting and the carnivore diet.
Learning how backwards our knowledge of nutrition was from school, I was fascinated and wanted to learn more. I implemented what I learned found it that it worked,which motivated me more to continue this WOE.
On a side note, I have always been interested in science and how things work. Also, since my son was born and diagnosed with autism I have had the drive and need to know more and learn more to help my family and others.
What I found after a month of fasting was that my depression and anxiety was disappearing. What I found after one month of carnivore was that I felt stronger and more in control again. Now, 8 months into carnivore and 11 months into fasting my PCOS symptoms are nearly gone. My IBD symptoms have become more manageable and my depression and anxiety are not a factor in my life anymore. I just continue to see improvement.
I have learned a lot and want to share my knowledge with you. Going from 232 lbs to 160 lbs I am still going down! I want to help you have as much success as I have and give you the motivation to live the life you want to live.
As a carnivore and fasting coach, I look forward to helping you regardless of the stage your in or what roadblocks you have encountered.
I can’t wait to connect with you and help you succeed on your journey.
