I’m excited to share my story with you.
My journey to better health and well-being began 4 years ago when my husband, fairly recently diagnosed with T2D, was researching ways to manage his diabetes with diet, rather than medication. He was on a literal handful of meds that were controlling his BG, but doing nothing for his overall health. He told me he wanted to start Keto because he couldn’t keep doing what he was doing. I went along for the ride as the supportive wife. I was not diabetic, however very possibly pre-diabetic. I was 230 lbs, depressed and anxious, asthmatic, suffering on an off from some pretty terrible eczema and I was literally dragging myself up the stairs each day. About 2 weeks into keto I felt better than I had in decades. I started digging into all of the information I could about it. I stumbled through keto for 2 years, with my weight going up and down, though my depression had improved greatly and my asthma was mostly resolved. I was still suffering from eczema and by that time it was fairly serious. I was back and forth to emergency before being referred to a specialist. I had been put on prednisone and several steroid creams, none of which resolved it. Once again I dug into research and stumbled upon Carnivore. By this time I was prioritizing meat but still eating lots of vegetables. I decided to eliminate the vegetables and incorporate fasting and what do you know? My eczema was cleared within 10 days and has not returned.
To date I have lost 90 pounds. My mental health is perfect. My asthma is non-existent. My skin is clear and glowing. I no longer struggle with food addiction or out of control hunger. I’ve started moving my body everyday, which further enhances my mental and physical health. I have never been this well in my entire life. Meat has healed me. My husband continues to manage his T2D without medication. We have been in this together from day 1. I wouldn’t be where I am without him. I’ve started sharing my journey on my own social media in an effort to let my friends and family know that there is a better way.
That’s more than a few sentences, but I’m just so grateful for this journey. I feel like shouting it from the rooftops. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
