Tiffany overcame decades of food addiction on a carnivore diet

I lost 130 lbs with a combination of intermittent fasting and low carb paleo eating. In January 2020 when I began experimenting with a carnivore diet, my goals were primarily for body recomposition as I needed to tighten loose skin and build muscle after going from 260 down to 130 lbs. (I am 5’8”)
 
I have had many more NSVs than that now that I have been exclusively carnivore for the last several months. 
 
-I wake before my alarm
– I have sustained energy throughout the day
– I’m now training for a marathon because my legs want to move 
– I’m almost never hungry and actually remind myself to eat
– I sleep more soundly and need less sleep overall
– I’m more productive because my thinking is sharp and clear 
– Body recomposition: I’ve lost 1” from my rib cage, 2” from my hips, and 3 1/2” from my waist
– Anxiety is gone
– Age spots are fading
– The most important NSV of all, sticking to a carnivore diet helped me overcome decades of sugar addiction and carb binges. 
 
Miscellaneous info – Shawn Baker’s carnivore book was my gateway to starting, and I joined meat rx for the 30 day trial January 2020. My full length before/after is 2015 to March 2020. The up close before/after is 2011 to 2020. The most recent before/after shows the difference when I made my most recent tweaks (increase fat/protein ratio and eliminate salt) The difference is from Thanksgiving day to December 18.

  1. Thank you for sharing this, I’m starting (again) in the same place you were. I know that carnivore and fasting work, but I am held fast by those sugar/carb addictions. Knowing that it really can be done is encouraging. I would love to know more about that particular piece of your journey.
    You look amazing! Thanks.

    1. Hi Karen,

      Overcoming addiction is a physical and emotional process. Eliminating all carbs and eating a carnivore diet enabled me to eliminate the cravings and deal with the physical aspect, but I still had to overcome emotional binge eating.

      It took an honest look into myself to identify the triggers that set off the binges — multiple times. Overcoming addiction is not a one-time event. I failed many times along the way. Each failure taught me more about myself and gave me tools for the next time.

      I recommend the work of Dr. Vera Tarman and Dr, Robert Cywes for professional insight into the addiction component. They were both helpful for me.
