I’m 46 years old and I have been Carnivore since September 15, 2017. Prior to that I was keto for 1 year and tried carnivore for 6 weeks but failed due to carnivore flu.

I began with A1C of 6.0 and this is what triggered me to research all this to find a solution. I am now at a A1C 5.7

At my highest I weighed 252lbs and now I weigh 192 lbs.

I do intermittent fasting and I tried all the different variations and picked a personal favorite. I do Alternate Day Fasting. I fast between 32-40 hrs and I am comfortable in doing that.

My strength and endurance has huge improvements and it seems that I keep improving the more I tighten my diet to ribeye and salt. Right now I eat untrimmed ribeye beef 98% of the time around 3 lbs every other day.

The ailments that have gone in remissions are many through this diet. I have diverticulitus, it used to be so bad that during flare ups the pain scale was 11 (want to kill yourself) to a 12 (passout). I know it’s still there but I have not had a single flare up in at least 4 months.

Urinary Tract Infections happened every other months and were very painful and last 1-2 weeks.

After carnivore I can’t remember the last time I got one, it’s been at least 6 months and when it came I barely noticed it.

I used to get colds at least once a month. I got my last cold this past September 2018 and it’s hardly noticeable compared to my colds prior to carnivore.

I also had plantar fascitis and heel spurs, both seem to be in remission as now when I walk I feel no pain but if I eat out even on carnivore then I can feel them again.

I have so many list of ailments that has gone away and I will list them so as not to bore you.

  • acne
  • dandruff
  • sinus infection
  • snoring
  • sleep apnea
  • skin tags (not all are gone)
  • dry skin
  • rosacea
  • morning erections were almost nonexistent

I was a couch potato before my diet journey, now my workouts consists of Orange Theory Fitness, Shotokan Karate and Jiu Jitsu. I usually do my practices in a fasted state and lately I have been fasted at least 30+ hrs and do up to 4-5 hrs workout and have no problems handling the intensity.

I have never felt healthier in my life and that includes in my 20’s.

Carnivore is life for me.

My thanks to all my hero’s out there: Dr Shawn Baker, theAndersen family, Kelly Hogan, Esmée La Fleur, Gary Taubes, Dr. Jason Fung, Nina Teicholz, Professor Tim Noakes and many more out in the low/carb carnivore space.

Allow me to say since as far back as I can recall I think I had IBS symptoms from a very young age. I had my gallbladder removed at the very young age of 18 years old as well.

I was diagnosed with a hiatus hernia at 18 and maintained a daily dose of PPI medication for about 25 years which didn’t control the pain until I started following a ketogenic lifestyle and gave up all grains.

Fast forward to 4 years of ketogenic lifestyle and an 80 lb weight loss.

I was diagnosed in 2017 after severe episodes of pain lasting days. I went to the ER thinking I had appendicitis. I almost went into the OR for appendectomy, but the doctor did a CAT Scan and surprisingly I was diagnosed with diverticulitis in the ascending colon. The report indicates substantial inguinal gland swelling, diverticulitis on right side, and the sigmoid shows moderate diverticulitis and my appendix was normal.

I had been plagued with years of sudden drop to your knees pain, nausea, sweats, but this attack was different and most severe.

Fast forward to recently, when I had just met with the surgeon for a post consult after doing a colonoscopy a few weeks ago.

Shockingly, I was informed that there are absolutely no signs of diverticulitis or any bowel disease. One polyp had been found, but it was sent to lab and is benign.

My symptoms have completely disappeared. My inguinal glands after having been so enlarged they were visible to the eye are now normal.

My surgeon was baffled and asked what I felt was the reason for such drastic change.

I, with great apprehension told him I eliminated all fibre. Apprehension because I thought he would blast me. Instead he said he had never seen anyone have such drastic improvement to overall gut health and eliminating habits and that he would share this with his patients who obsess about continuously about getting healthier with more fibre in their diet.

I started following a carnivore diet in January of this year after hearing about this concept first on a podcast with Shawn Baker on Joe Rogan. This was the beginning of my healing.
