When Michael first discovered the carnivore diet, about two years ago, I decided to try it too. I’ve had a constant battle trying to shed the weight that comes with age, hormonal changes, and an underactive thyroid. And one thing I know for certain is that Michael always does his research.
I started to lose weight right away, and I enjoyed the food. I’ve always loved eating meat. But it just didn’t feel right. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that this diet could possibly be healthy. I was raised on a Mediterranean diet which included meat, dark leafy greens, and starch every day. Having already been on keto for several years, I already missed eating summer fruits and sugary veggies like corn on the cob.
Fast forwarding and still struggling with the weight issues, my bioidentical hormone specialist (not your conventional Western M.D. by any means) suggested I try Dr Baker’s carnivore diet. He asked me to read the book.
Reading the book is what made all the difference for me. What Dr Baker says makes total and complete sense. I’m actually enjoying the diet this time around, knowing that it is good for me, and I’m seeing positive changes. The weight loss is minimal for now, but my energy level has skyrocketed! I am more motivated than ever too. I see other small changes as well, such as improved skin tone. And I feel like my thyroid is coming back into balance. It’s only been about eight weeks, so I’m looking forward to seeing what else transforms for me over the next year.
I recommend you allow Michael to guide you and give it a try.
