After eating a 100% carnivore diet for one year, Cara says that going zero-carb works for her, and it’s the best thing she’s ever done for herself.
Her preferred diet is beef, lots of eggs, organ meats whenever possible, some pork, and some chicken when the other choices aren’t available. She has some dairy, such as full-fat cheeses and plain yogurt, but no milk.
The Role Of Intermittent Fasting In Cara’s Regimen
Intermittent fasting is also part of her regimen, mostly two meals a day, sometimes one. Her energy level seems to stay high following this routine.
Following a paleo approach for the last 4 or 5 years, Cara had always been healthy and active. She says that she understands and likes the perspective of how humans should eat or at least evaluate their food choices, that is, natural things: things we are used to eating.
How Going Zero-Carb Improved Cara’s Health And Well-Being
Although she ate paleo, she still drank a lot of beer, probably twice daily or more when socializing. However, eating Carnivore has destroyed her taste for beer. She doesn’t even like it anymore, which is just as well because of the money saved by not buying beer. Besides, drinking caused her to have intense cravings for junk food. Going Carnivore eliminated those cravings.
She adapted to Carnivore quite easily: no keto flu or low energy. Her digestion stabilized in a few weeks with no bloating, and her mental clarity is top-notch. “I always can focus when I need to and multi-task if I need to, and I have a much more stable and good mood all the time. I might be one of those co-workers called perky,” says Cara.
“I just feel pretty good and balanced all the time. I handle stress way better than I used to. I think that has to do with (the fact that) now I’m eating something that completely nourishes me and balances out blood sugar and hormones and all of the signals and everything that your body needs to just kind of run at a good baseline.”
The Impact Of A Carnivore Diet On Cara’s Skin, Hair, And Hormones
Her skin is clearer. She did have adult acne that is now gone. Her hair and nails are growing faster and are stronger. Her monthly cycle is what it should be. She feels fortunate that so many other women struggle with hormonal imbalances. Still, on a carnivore diet, she has noticed improvement with a shorter monthly cycle, no cramps or irritability, and a lack of PMS.
How A Zero-Carb Diet Boosted Cara’s Immune System
She’s noticed that even after moving, starting a new job, and meeting lots of new people, especially children, neither she nor her husband got sick this year. She attributes her stronger immune system to the carnivore diet.
Cara plans to keep up the carnivore lifestyle and contribute in any way that she can.
