Mental health – anxiety

Real People, Real Results​

Kassandra reverses a lifetime of obesity

My name is Kassandra and I’m 35 years old. My mother and I nearly died during my birth because she had untreated gestational diabetes. She passed out and I was pulled out with forceps unresponsive. I survived in nicu because the nurses taped together two incubators since I was a very large baby. 

I stayed large through most of my life, starting my first diet when I started public school. 
By my mid 20’s I was 270+lbs, and I had PCOS, lipedema, keratosis pilaris, bad acne, and extreme  joint pain. 
Lost 100 lbs in my late twenties biggest loser style. My legs didn’t shrink much but I felt better because I was thinner. 
Then I watched “Sugar: a bitter at truth” by Dr. Lustig and gave up sugar for 3 months. 
10 months the later, I welcomed my first happy accident son into the world. 
I eased up my sugar restrictions but still restricted calories and over exercised. Couldn’t lose weight. Blamed it on the birth control so I stopped it and got another happy accident. 
My second pregnancy had complications because of extreme weight gain and failed glucose test. 
Then I tried keto at the permission of my OB and stopped gaining weight. Had a healthy baby.
Listened to a bunch of YouTube lectures from keto conventions and heard about carnivore. 
I still wasn’t gaining but couldn’t stop binging so I looked up what little I could on carnivore and tried 90 days. 
That was over 2.5 years ago. I’m leaner than Ive ever been in my life. No more PCOS, acne, or joint pain. My lipedema is shrinking and reduced a lot. Keratosis has reduced 95%. 
I can’t weigh myself because I still struggle with scale anxiety but I’m a S/M (dress size 6/8) and I spent most of my life in XL/XXL so I feel like I have a new body with more energy in my thirties than I had in my teens. 
 
Before pictures (I avoided the camera and have very few full body pictures) this was a good acne day…
Forced photo at my largest. 
Pictures from a few weeks ago. I don’t have a full length mirror in my house besides my sons room so mind the mess and stickers. 
My bridal shower (marrying my son’s dad in October!). Showing more egg than I realized but you can’t tell I have lipedema anymore because it’s minor and mostly is in my hips. 

James gets off all psych meds on a carnivore diet

Hello,
My name is James. I am 27 years old and have suffered immensely from mental health issues since I was 6 years old. I was diagnosed with ADHD and put on psych medication in kindergarten. I also was depressed as a child which progressed as I became a teenager. When I was 17 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and schizo affective disorder. I am now 27 and have been hospitalized due to manic episodes over 200 times. I was told I would never live a normal life and always have to be on medications which caused obesity due to elevating my insulin and blood sugar.

I came across the work of dr. Shawn baker and dr. Chris Palmer. I began intermittent fasting and eating carnivore and within 2 weeks my lifelong depression lifted. I also lost 25 pounds in those 2 weeks. I went from 270 pounds to 245. I had metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, triglycerides and blood sugar) and my labs have all normalized. This is just the beginning of my journey and I am so grateful. I have been on this diet for 1 month and plan to do it for the rest of my life. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. I also check my blood ketones daily to make sure I am in ketosis, usually between 3-5 ml. All of my mental health issues have been put into remission as well as my life long psoriasis that covered my face and scalp.

Thank you Shawn Baker for having the courage to speak the truth. You have saved my life and the lives of future generations by sharing this knowledge. I plan to share my story to try and help heal others who are needlessly suffering. There are no words to express my gratitude.

Reagan heals from stuttering, stress, anxiety, pain, aches, dizziness, sleep, insomnia, obesity

Before the carnivore diet I was suffering with chronic depression, stress,  and anxiety. I would have panic attacks at night constantly along with sleep insomnia. All throughout my younger years it would take me 5-8 hours to fall asleep as i couldn’t fall asleep no matter the medication.  I sufferd with asthma as well; all throughout my life I was being rushed to hospitals in the middle of the night because i couldn’t breathe and my rescue inhaler wouldn’t work. 

Later in life in my teenage years was when the depression started. I tried ending my life on multiple occasions. Along with the stress, depression, and panic attacks at night, I also was suffering with chronic pain, head to toes. I had migrains and headaches almost every day non-stop. My joints were always killing me. I took pain killers all the time and nothing seemed to work. I was at even balding as a teenager and had horrible skin, I broke out bad. 

The heaviest I got up to was 258 pounds. I was obese and suffering. Although not diagnosed by a doctor, my blood pressure would shoot up when I tested it, and I would get so dizzy that I would literally fall it was just random spikes throughout the day. I knew something was off when everything around me started spinning. 

I also have been stuttering since I first began talking and went to speech thearpy from before i was even in school to 7th grade. Eventually I stopped trying; I just figured I would be stuttering foerver. 

With carnivore my depression has completely gone away. My stress, anxiety, pain, aches, dizziness, sleep, insomnia, and obesity are all gone. My stuttering has improved drastically. I stutter only once in a while now, whereas before it was every single word. I haven’t had any asthma attacks or breathing problems since going on this diet over 2 years ago . My hair grows like weeds now. Also, no more balding, no more skin issues, just everything is amazing and I’m no longer suffering.

Sade manages her borderline personality disorder on a carnivore diet

My name is Sade, I’m 28 years old and live in Mexico, I am from London UK. I was diognosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2015 and have also been dealing with Anxiety and Depression for years prior to being diognosed. I tried to talk to someone about getting a diagnosis for Autism (Asperger’s) because of my sensitivity issues, repetitive behaviour and inability to socialize (without substances i.e alcohol/drugs) I have always been extremely socially awkward and not sure of how to connect with others properly. All of my younger siblings are also autistic. The mental health team dismissed everything and stuck with the BPD and prescribed me medications and had me in therapy (DBT) which only lasted 4 weeks due to being homeless at the time.
I had an unstable childhood and really traumatic time as a teenager and young adult.
I am married with a son now and the mental illnesses almost ruined my marriage I found carnivore just in time as we were on the verge of a divorce.
I am currently thriving on carnivore I’ll be going into my 8th week on monday and I’ve seen improvements from just a week into carnivore. Three days for the depression to lift, a week for the anxiety to go completely and the BPD symptoms have been slowly going away week after week. They feel gone now but of course I’m continuing to monitor myself as its only been 8 weeks. But coming from being mentally unstable everyday to not having any episodes or highs/lows… I’m pretty convinced Its a permanent thing.

If you need me to change this in anyway or you need to edit it please feel free. Haven’t done a bio like this before.
Also if the photo isn’t appropriate let me know as I’ll need to take a new photo during the daytime tomorrow. This photo was taken yesterday.
Also a photo of me when I was bigger attached.

Thanks

Sade
