Background: I was completely healthy going into this and already in better shape than majority of people. I have not been sick once in over 6 years and have long prided myself on not being brainwashed by our corrupt health system. I read the GAPS diet book and have long understood the healing benefits of meat. My dad is a rancher and raises his own grass fed beef & pork. Sugar grams have been primarily all I have looked at on nutrition labels to avoid for the past decade. Health has always been a top priority for me.
I found Dr. Baker on Twitter and started researching the Carnivore Diet (Note: I am someone that researches everything to ad nauseam). I was honestly shocked how much I was still brainwashed, despite all the stuff I mentioned above. I ate about 80% plant-based and about 20% animal products. I ate this way because believed the ‘micronutrient’ propaganda that made me think I needed to be eating fruits and vegetables even though I have long been opposed to the global warming BS that we are fed.
Diet before: All organic fruits, vegetables, dairy (minimal), grass fed meats, pastured eggs, sugar treats somewhat regularly but controlled. I basically started Carnivore to see if there was any improvements for someone like me that was already way ahead of the curve in health. I should also add that I do not believe in conventional medicine. I would never take any pharmaceutical and recognize that vaccines are poison.
Issues: The only issue that I have really had in the past 10 years is imperfect skin. My skin has always been really sensitive to razor burn and have never had ‘clear’ skin but it wasn’t a huge issue either. I attributed it to mostly hormonal issues near my period when things would flare up. I workout most days of the week and would get blemishes on my legs from the sweat and spandex combination too (or so I believed).
Current Diet: I started the Carnivore Diet on 7/23. This week will be 100 days. Since I was not on the typical Standard American Diet before, the transition was pretty easy even though I was consuming mostly carbs before. Day 3, 4, and 5 felt sort of awful/low energy and then woke up on day 6 feeling amazing and have felt that way ever since. I was pretty strict for 30 days other than allowing myself vanilla stevia drops for my coffee and eating full fat plain yogurt (+ vanilla stevia drops) occasionally. After 30 days, I started allowing myself to eat 1 avocado a week and after 60 days, I started adding a few tablespoons of fermented vegetables & horseradish mustard to sardines to make a sardine salad for post workout lunch sometimes. Mostly for the flavor and crunch. ***I also cheat 1X per week with an real dessert. Yes, it does give me minor digestion issues, and no, I don’t care. Ice cream, a cupcake or a cookie is still worth it to me.*** Other than that, I have coffee in the morning, eggs + cheese for brunch (wait as long as I can in the a.m.), sardines or some smoked salmon for post workout if I feel hungry and beef for dinner (0.5-1lb/ day). It’s not physically possible for me to get sick of eating steak and eggs. I am excited for every meal. I have no reason to go back to eating the way I was before and do not intend to.
Results: Skin is the clearest it’s ever been. Barely have any issues anymore and the few blemishes that have appeared, the skin heals 10x faster. My skin sensitivity has gone down a lot too. You can see from the photos below that in one week, my stomach looks much less bloated. The second photo was after 1 month. I have not really lost weight, but didn’t really have much to lose to begin with. I definitely feel leaner. The biggest shock to me, and the reason I will continue this way of eating, is the difference in digestion. I used to stress about regularity & fiber because I felt bloated all the time. I don’t even think about it now at all. When I cheat, I actually feel the intestinal distress. Hard to believe I lived that way for so long. The other major thing I noticed is less muscle fatigue when working out. My stamina and strength have improved to where I now cut myself off based on time. I do yoga or calisthenics HIIT workouts only with no weight. Lastly, I used to sunburn easily (\~30 min in sun) and I have twice been out in the sun for 90 min without sun screen on this diet and did not burn either time. I saw a guy on instagram talk about this, so I tested it out. I am not sure why this occurs but the results are real and I am happy to not being wearing toxic sunscreen anymore!
Conclusion: Vegan propaganda and our conventional medical system are part of a plan to weaken our population so they are dumber and easier to control. I will advocate the Carnivore Diet from now on, as my eyes have been opened even further. I look and feel better than I ever have at 35 and do not miss eating a carb heavy diet at all. I will also add that the simplicity of eating this way cannot be understated. Requires very little time and effort, thus no one has any excuse not to try this out. You will not regret it.
