Diabetes & blood sugar
Real People, Real Results
Travis improved focus, anxiety disorder, OCD, depression, psoriasis, and blood sugar on the carnivore diet
Travis is in Calgary, Canada, and was born with coarctation of the aorta, also nearly three months premature. He says there were “lots of complications because of that.” Travis explains, “I’ve had eight heart operations, and two gastrointestinal because my aorta was actually plumbed to my stomach artery. Because that got infected… it was a very complex issue that had to be corrected.”
Travis also didn’t have any femoral arteries in his legs, so “I was definitely not able to do a lot of physical activities.” Growing up, he experienced muscle fatigue and other symptoms due to poor circulation. Travis says, “I had a lot of migraines, almost daily, and my mom was always pulling me out of school because I had a headache.” He also had high blood pressure due to his arterial malformations.
The years of antibiotics and worry about health took a toll, and Travis says, “I started to have severe mental health issues, with OCD, anxiety, and depression. Skin disorders, like eczema and psoriasis.”
The antibiotics were needed because Travis had an aortic graft, which presented a risk of infection, so he was on antibiotics continually. Despite this, he has had “two heart infections that were pretty bad.” Graft infections carry a 50% mortality rate, so they can’t be ignored. The constant threat likely contributed to his stress.
When he considered that the way doctors would look for infection was by using radioactive-tagged glucose, he decided, “If they use glucose to find an infection, then wouldn’t it be best for someone who has a high risk of infection to be on a low glycemic diet?” The strategy worked, and instead of taking an antibiotic daily, Travis can take one every few weeks.
“I started with Paleo, because I thought that was the best way to go.” Then later, he decided “maybe keto was the best way, because I hear a lot of people with mental health issues doing keto and kind of putting that in remission.”
Travis learned that plants were not his friend: “I found out that as I excluded more and more plants, I felt better.” Worried that eating only meat wasn’t a sustainable diet, Travis researched online, where he found many people who had been eating only meat for years. He decided to give it a go and see how it went!
Travis finds that dairy products are a “no-go, otherwise, psoriasis and eczema will flare up.”
His doctors discouraged exercise, but Travis has found that regular exercise now improves his aerobic ability and circulation, saying, “even my femoral arteries have increased in size since I started working out.”
Travis no longer suffers from his skin issues and finds that his brain and mind are functioning better as well. “I don’t have any OCD symptoms with it; my anxiety is far down, and I’m able to cope with a lot of stressors in life because of this. It’s a lifesaver.”
Irina overcame candida infection, vitamin D deficiency, and vasculitis on a carnivore diet
Irina struggled with many different ailments before she found the carnivore diet. She had Candida, IBS, a vitamin D deficiency since birth, bleeding gums, vasculitis that manifested when she was a teenager, PCOS, chronic inflammation, and exercise induced asthma. Her doctors told her, “This is just how it is, some people are just affected with these things.” Irina was in her mid-20’s and didn’t want to accept this, so she tried to approach her problems with nutrition.
Before starting her carnivore diet, Irina tried a vegetarian, pescatarian, veggie and meat combination diet, and keto. The keto diet caused her to gain weight and have digestive problems. She thinks now that it was because she ate too many nuts and nut products and veggies with fiber. All that fiber gave her painful bloating. Also, she never felt satisfied and had to eat constantly throughout the day.
None of these diets helped her various ailments. She continued to have IBS, joint pain from inflammation (swollen ankles or knees), asthma with lots of coughing when she exercised, a cyst on her ovary, Candida flares, chronically low vitamin D, gums that bled when she flossed, and vasculitis. Dealing with her candida flares, the PCOS, and her other conditions came to a head when Irina was 31. She became “fed up with doctors just trying to give me medication.”
She believes that the body is designed to be healthy, and she was doing something that prevented it from working properly. “I just wanted to find what it was.” At this point she decided to try the carnivore diet because she “was already kind of a hot mess.”
About two months before she did, Irina’s husband started the diet. She saw his eczema clear up, and this made an impression. In May of 2020, her husband showed her Dr. Baker’s podcast with Joe Rogan and she thought, “I have to try this. I have nothing to lose.”
Irina says she gets full and eats less than before. She enjoys eggs and bacon or natural sausage for lunch and various meats for dinner—pork, cheaper cuts of beef for slow-cooking, lamb, liver once a week, and sometimes chicken thighs. She enjoys the simplicity of the carnivore diet because there are few ingredients and meals are easy to prepare.
Irina now exercises about four days per week, doing weight training and high intensity workouts without asthma, joint pain, or swelling, and with faster recovery.
An ultrasound at the end of 2020 revealed that the cyst on her ovary was gone. There are no signs of inflamed capillaries from vasculitis, she doesn’t have IBS, no Candida flares, her dentist told her she has healthy gums—they never bleed anymore—and a blood test showed normal vitamin D levels, without any supplementation.
Since going on her carnivore diet, she “hasn’t had a single recurrence of any of this stuff. It’s like a magic cure.”
Tracy improved SIBO/IBS, menopausal symptoms, A1C, brain fog, and energy on carnivore diet
Tracy is a fitness and nutrition coach who lives in Frisco, Texas. She is a cancer survivor who has overcome several health problems with the help of a meat-based elimination diet.
She grew up eating the standard American diet and contracted mononucleosis at age 17. This resulted in a number of chronic immune issues. Tracy ate a “whole food plant-based diet” for 15 years, which resulted in gut problems that her doctor said were irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Tracy says this diagnosis wasn’t helpful, because it “was a code word for ‘we have no idea what the hell is wrong with you!”
She became a fitness trainer and nutrition coach and “did cleanses,” but she still experienced lots of bloating, constipation, and fatigue. Tracy’s symptoms were so severe that she went to ER several times, “looking eight months pregnant and they would say, ‘oh you know, drink some Metamucil, eat more fiber, eat low fat.” She would later realize that fiber was causing her to bloat and damaging her intestines.
“10 years after I had some of those digestive problems, I had my appendix out, and then 10 years later I ended up being diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and I was the poster child of health and fitness.” Tracy felt let down by the medical system and mainstream health advice, because “I did all the ‘right’ things and I still got cancer”
She endured 28 chemo and radiation sessions and had to wait to heal because she was irradiated so badly. “I ended up having to have a permanent colostomy bag, so that was devastating.”
Tracy still experienced symptoms and discomfort after her cancer treatment. She did get some improvement from fasting, but found her gut health never really improved completely. “So I was diagnosed then with SIBO, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, of which they say about 80% of ‘IBS’ sufferers have SIBO, right?”
Tracy found a protocol that included the first two weeks of being on a carnivore diet. She found that she didn’t know how to cook a steak but started following the protocol. The results happened quickly: “I’ll tell you what, I felt amazing… I have never felt so clear-minded. I think it was so many years that I didn’t even know I was suffering with brain fog, but all of a sudden it was like the veil came down and I felt like I could see things so much clearer. A lot of my inflammation was gone, I felt leaner, my stomach felt better, and that was 2019.”
Since her body is now burning ketones for fuel, she has found that her energy is much more stable. Tracy practices intermittent fasting and eats eggs, avocado, raw cheese, steak, or burgers at night. “I really love a ribeye!”
Tracy has found the diet that her body needs, saying, “I just feel better when I stick to an animal-based diet…my energy is better and…when I’m eating that way I’m able to function at a higher level.”
Chana heals from NAFLD, skin issues, digestive issues, and pre-diabetes on a carnivore diet
Chana is located in Israel and has been on a carnivore diet for nine months. Her career was in music education, and she had been teaching as an orchestra director in New York and Pennsylvania since 1973. She also taught string instruments privately and in groups.
She always thought of herself as “into health,” and in 1982, “I decided to become a vegetarian, thinking that was a great way to go with my health because I gained a little weight after my first child, and then a year later I became a vegan and, um, way too restrictive! I actually felt okay for a while, then in the 90’s…couldn’t pinpoint it but I wasn’t feeling as well. When I get into these things, I’m very strict. Very little protein, and even less fat. You’d spread a little oil on the pan to saute some kind of vegetable and that’s about the amount of fat you got.”
Every time some health problem would arise, Chana would try to further tweak her diet. She now knows that she should have tweaked it by “getting rid of the diet, adding some protein and fat, get rid of the carbs.”
Chana started eating more raw foods, believing that they were healthy for her to eat, and “then I really wasn’t feeling so good,” and she realized this diet tweak didn’t help at all.
Chana tried Paleo “which helped a little bit but not enough to be ketogenic.” She found out about carnivore from a friend who was doing it. She thought about it for several months, but her friend wasn’t doing it anymore.
She was then diagnosed with fatty liver disease and primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). Chana also had reflux problems for a long time.
Chana started the carnivore diet on her birthday last year. She had problems with her adrenals and hypothyroid, “along with some yo-yo dieting things from the past where I was eating too many carbs.”
She has been able to minimize the level of bioidentical hormones she takes, and after six weeks on the diet, her liver enzymes began to normalize. Chana experienced other changes in her blood work, with “cholesterol has gone up to 322, my HDL is 114, LDL is 197. Triglycerides are 53.” These values reflect some very healthy ratios, such as a triglyceride to HDL ratio well below 1.0. Her reflux completely vanished after six weeks on the diet.
Chana has also seen a big improvement in her energy levels: “I get much more accomplished. Before carnivore I was in bed a lot; I was exhausted.” Her weight also went from 154 down to 125 in about six weeks!
As far as Revero goes, Chana feels “it has been a major source of help and camaraderie and community, and it’s really a wonderful platform to be part of because there’s so much support.” She is now a coach on the platform!
Michelle ran her first half-marathon at 61 on a low-carb diet
Michelle – 61 year old female, soon to be 62 in January
12/2021 Started carnivore – At that time, I was using a type of macro tracker which, based upon my metrics and goals, had me at adequate protein, low fat, and low carb. Since the end of 2018, I had been dealing with chronic forearm tendonitis and both lateral and medial elbow pain in my left arm. Also, I have always dealt with constipation, bloating, and lower energy. Since my early 40s, I’ve had a small eczema patch, which I affectionately began to call my barometer. Since I had a sense of how much protein to eat and my carbs were quite low, I decided to give carnivore a try to see if I could mitigate my arm pain, and address constipation, bloating, and eczema.
What I learned during my first year as a carnivore:
- I call meat, with its requisite fat, my gate keeper. As long as I have adequate protein, with the fat it contains, my energy is stable and I have no cravings.
- I hydrate throughout the day (water), and use electrolytes during endurance activities.
- Constipation and bloating resolved immediately, as if I never had them. Eczema resolved, but it does present a bit when I eat eggs.
- Arm pain is much better, but not completely resolved. Most of the time I am not in pain (prior to carnivore, I was always in pain). While I do love to lift (compound movements), they don’t always love me back (sometimes my arm hurts and sometimes not). The pain doesn’t necessarily present in real time, so I am never sure of what’s going to hurt and what won’t until after I’m done with a workout. There’s something about stepping up to a bar (regardless of the grip) or dumbbells that doesn’t always agree with my arm, regardless of the weight. However, during this year, I discovered that lifting really heavy things (sand bags, tire flips, hay bales, grain bags), close to my body, generates great blood flow, without any pain in my arm. This type of activity makes me so happy. I can work hard and I never experience pain.
- I realized that I had forgotten to take my supplements for thyroid and adrenals, which I dutifully had taken for years, after starting carnivore. Once I realized this, I no longer felt that I needed them.
- Initially, I didn’t take off weight, but I could tell that my body was changing because my clothes fit differently. I ditched the scales. Eventually, I took off about 8 lbs, but my clothes fit the same.
- I no longer feel compelled to chase errant bio-markers (mostly thyroid). If I feel fine, I’m going to assume I’m fine, and as long as I stay carnivore.
- My sleep is solid.
- I eat when I’m hungry.
- Favorite steak cut: chuck-eye
- Favorite braise cut: cross-cut shank
- When I go on longer runs (5-6 miles), my body is fine. Before carnivore, I felt like I had done work after a long run day, and I would give my body a break the next day. Now I don’t even notice the longer distance and feel that I could do it again the next day.
- Highlight during my first year as a carnivore:
In June, I ran a half-marathon at altitude (about 4800 feet elevation, near Glacier National Park). I neither train that distance, nor run at altitude. My energy and expenditure was fine throughout the run. Afterward, I felt like I had worked, but my recovery was rather seamless. I took the next day off, except for some light walking. The following day I was fine. No carbohydrates required!
Further background about me
I have always been very active, but struggled with weight (either over or under eating). I was constantly on the go, yet fatigued. I always assumed that I was low thyroid, based upon my symptoms. The doctor would check one thyroid marker, which would be in normal range, and tell me I was fine. I love to cook and love to eat. I’ve always been bloated and constipated. I like to do deep dives into information and many N=1 experiments.
In the early 2000s, we embraced Weston Price and Nourishing Traditions. We sourced local grass-fed meat, always tried to source organic produce, and adopted food and lifestyle as our medicine.
Between 2008 and 2018 we farmed in Oregon, raising/selling pastured/grass-fed meat. I started paleo in 2012 and Crossfit in 2013 (5 days per week). I was also active in physically-demanding equine sport and ran 3-4 days per week. I was perimenopausal/menopausal. By 2014, I was in post-menopause and in the pre-diabetic range (A1C of 5.7).
Between 2014 and 2019, I began keto paleo and intermittent fasting, often interchanging days of each. I tried low-fodmap for bloating. Sleep was not great. Adrenals were tapped. I had some low thyroid markers (mostly T3). No autoimmunity. I probably had a cortisol response from much underfeeding, intermittent fasting, and much activity. I tracked blood glucose throughout the day for several years. My A1C didn’t really lower significantly but glucose ranges were so narrow that it was assumed that I wasn’t headed for diabetes, given my food choices and activity level.
By the end of 2018, I had developed chronic forearm tendonitis and both lateral and medial elbow pain from overuse. In 2019, I began using the RP app, which gave me a breakdown of macros that were right for me. I stopped intermittent fasting and started fueling, especially on protein! Had more carbs than I previously had. Great results! Lowered weight and body fat.
In 2020 I got out of the pre-diabetic range (A1C 5.4). I assumed it was because I added back in some carbs. I now know that it was more so that I wasn’t underfueling and stressing my body out.
At the end of 2021, I started carnivore. I love vegetables but don’t miss them, as long as I eat enough protein and fat. In 2022, a few months into my carnivore journey (March), I tried the fruit/honey (small amounts) route for a few weeks. My energy wasn’t great during this time and especially with the honey, it was a slippery slope having it in the house. My lower energy resolved when I ended the short fruit/honey stint. I didn’t miss either. After the brief fruit/honey experiment, I added in some electrolytes, which my body seemed to crave. Was it the electrolytes or was it the hydration that my body was craving? Now, I use electrolytes during endurance activities or if I feel tired, but I endeavor to stay well-hydrated. Recently, I tried adding in more butter. I like the idea of it, but if I add it on top of adequate daily protein, it is just too much fuel for me. Even with increasing activity, my clothes were just getting tighter. I’d need to decrease protein, if I am going to add more fat. Right now my activities include: Functional Range Conditioning, strength training (not always with a bar), rowing, running, rucking, hiking. While I am interested in getting stronger, I no longer want to work against a clock in HIIT activities on a daily basis. It’s great fun and comradery, but too much wear and tear for me.
For 2023, I have plans for two more half-marathons: one near Grand Tetons and one near Yellowstone. Hope to get to more runs in other beautiful locations, as I am able.
Coach Evan reverses ankylosing spondylitis on a carnivore diet
Ever since Evan was young, he had an insatiable hunger that caused him binge eat, in addition to his other daily struggles of ADHD, OCD, brain fog and fatigue. When he turned eleven—embarrassed by his heavy frame—he decided to go on a diet. Following the conventional wisdom at the time, he started eating a low-calorie/low-fat diet, full of lots of “healthy” whole grains, seed oils and tofu. He lost 30 pounds, but describes his body composition as “skinny fat ” at the time. He also couldn’t help noticing that he was a lot weaker than his fellow classmates. Using sheer willpower alone, Evan struggled with yo-yo dieting and calorie counting throughout high school, but it wasn’t until he entered college that the real trouble began.
“Out of nowhere,” Evan says, “I became incredibly depressed, anxious and suicidal.” He tried exercising daily to combat his negative feelings, but saw zero improvement. Exasperated, he turned his focus to his diet, and in his research experienced the cognitive dissonance that goes along with learning that animal fat is an important part of the human diet, while also simultaneously being the main driver of heart attacks and cancer. In the end, the “experts” won out, and Evan persisted in following their low-fat/high carb recommendations—to no avail. “I just felt worse and worse—I wasn’t getting better at all.”
After years of declining health, a defeated Evan began binge drinking and eating candy to deal with his frustrations. He eventually was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis—an autoimmune condition that runs in his family that affects the spine. He would go on to gain 40 pounds, and when hospitalized with bruises all over his body, nausea, diarrhea and night sweats, his doctors told him that his symptoms were most likely psychosomatic.
Finally, in 2020, one of his friends—who happened to be on the carnivore diet—invited him over for a steak. After eating it, Evan was surprised by how satiated he felt, and ended up not eating for the rest of the day. He woke up the next morning still feeling full, so he decided to give the carnivore diet a try. After the first week, Evan had lost ten pounds, and while he didn’t feel great—he didn’t feel terrible either. “Within the next two weeks, all of a sudden my depression and my anxiety had vanished, my Ankylosing Spondylitis had gotten 90% better, the numbness in my hands was gone, my bruising started going away, my asthma went away, my heartburn went away, my digestive issues went away…my libido came back—pretty much everything you can think of went away within two or three weeks.” He also noticed a remarkable improvement in his ADHD and OCD symptoms. “My whole outlook on life is a lot different: I’m a lot more motivated, a lot more friendly, outgoing, happy. So, pretty much, everything for me has changed.” His friends and family all agree. “I’m not the same beaten down person that I was before.”
Darby manages graves’ disease and type 1 diabetes on low-carb diet
Darby grew up being plagued by every kind of allergy imaginable. At 5 years old, he was diagnosed with hundreds—from trees to weeds to bee stings and everything in between. At 11, he needed reconstructive sinus surgery due to the many sinus infections over the years, and later had to have his tonsils out as well. As the years passed, the allergy shots helped a bit, but his health problems inhibited his ability to engage in the sports he loved. Fast forward to 2013, and Darby begins to experience heart palpitations, which are dismissed by doctors, as they advised him simply to “stay away from caffeine.”
In 2015, he was hospitalized with a heart attack, and two weeks later with another one again. This time, his doctor was wise enough to check his thyroid panel. He was diagnosed with Graves’ disease, and was given more medication to manage yet another health condition. He was able to feel a bit better and add a few pounds to his underweight frame, but in January of this year there was even more crushing news. Darby was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes. In his mid-thirties, his mind was filled with dread as to what could possibly come next. In a moment of sheer desperation, he prayed for an answer. Not long after, he found Shawn Baker and the Revero community.
“Behold, I was messing around YouTube and I stumbled upon you and Dr. Ken Berry initially, so I started watching video after video…and realized that maybe my issue had been plant material this entire time. What is it that is causing my body to attack itself? Is it the oxalates? Is it the lectins?”
In March, Darby slowly transitioned to the carnivore diet, and after two weeks, he didn’t need to take insulin anymore. By mid-April, he was able to come off his Graves’ disease medication, and this past October his labs revealed his thyroid hormone levels were completely normal. Now, he’s able to do things he’s only dreamed of; running, lifting weights, and carrying his daughter on his shoulders for hours at Disney World. He’s also free from the allergies and sinus infections that have haunted him his whole life.
“It’s absolutely amazing. It completely blew my mind, and—it’s strangely satisfying. I do not have a craving to eat anything but meat anymore.”
Darby started off doing a strict version of the carnivore diet—his meals consisting of red meat, salt and water. He has since branched out to add pork, eggs, and chicken, but he’s planning to go back to a stricter approach soon, as he believes that was one of the reasons for his rapid recovery.
“I can’t say how truly thankful I am—from the bottom of my heart—for what [Shawn Baker] and people like Ken Berry and Anthony Chaffee do on a daily basis to try and help people, because it really, truly is amazing. It’s a miracle—like nothing I’ve ever seen. I was told that, you can’t cure this. This is what you’re going to be for the rest of your life… If it wasn’t for you…I would have never known. I would have just stayed being sick on the SAD diet and getting sicker.”
As far as Darby’s concerned, he has a new lease on life, and when asked whether this diet is worth the risks, he says “Bring it on!”
Alex manages type 1 diabetes, retinopathy, and gastroparesis on a carnivore diet
Alex was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes at the tender age of 3, and although her diet growing up was low in sugar, it still contained the pastas and potatoes that graced the average household at the time. As she got older, she had to navigate the severe blood sugar lows that go along with being Type-1, regularly combatting symptoms of confusion, irritability, and general weakness. By the time she entered her teenage years, Alex was experiencing feelings of burnout and depression regarding her condition—but little did she know—things were about to get even more serious.
In her mid-twenties, Alex was diagnosed with Retinopathy and Gastroparesis. Both conditions bring misery; Retinopathy slowly steals your vision and Gastroparesis is a condition that effectively paralyzes the stomach, making it difficult to digest food or go to the bathroom. Alex describes her daily symptoms as hellish, and after a particularly upsetting eye doctor’s appointment, she found herself desperately searching for answers. Her uncle had passed away as a young man from Type-1 Diabetes, and she had no interest in suffering the same fate as well.
“I was home from work one day after having gotten a treatment for retinopathy, and I’m not going to go into the gruesome details on that one—but it involves injections into your eyeball—and I was not having a great time…I was on the computer and I was like, ‘I need to know what to do—I have to figure out how to stop going blind and how to stop puking every day! Something needs to change.’”
Laughed at by her endocrinologist, Alex feverishly searched the internet and ended up coming across the work of Dr. Richard Bernstein, a Type-1 Diabetic like herself who—now in his late 80’s—was still practicing medicine and treating diabetic patients by utilizing a low-carb diet approach. She got his book and read it in two days. Initially wanting to dive right in, Alex had to backtrack and wean off carbs slowly, a process that eventually took 2 years. Even though the transition took time, by the end of it she was experiencing predictable blood sugar, with the ability to go to the bathroom regularly too.
Still, she had some lingering issues, and that’s when she came across the carnivore diet. “I was like, ‘What! This is a concept?’” Alex approached it as an elimination diet, and after a year, she saw even more improvement in her overall health. Thirty years after being diagnosed with diabetes—at 33 years old—she has been able to drastically reduce her insulin usage, her gastroparesis is 90% in remission, and her eyesight is improving with every passing day. On top of that, the neuropathy in her toes is completely gone and she’s down 8 pant sizes as well! Alex feels like her entire body has undergone a healing. “Everything works better. I’m healthier than I ever have been in my entire life…I can’t speak enough good on all the progress that I’ve seen from making the changes that I have—and that’s what I wanted when I started!”
Coach George C loses fat, builds muscle, and heals from gut disorders on a carnivore diet
After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in engineering, George’s job took him to China. For ten years he traveled all throughout Asia, and as he entered his thirties, he decided to leave the corporate world and go into business for himself. After a few entrepreneurial missteps, he founded several food and fitness companies, and has been successfully running them for the past 20 years. Always fascinated by health and wellness, he regularly went to the gym and followed a low fat/high protein diet for 15 years. Around the age of 46, however, his body started to fall apart. At that time, he was starting a new project in Beijing when he developed a cough that lasted for six months. He also noticed that his usual health routine was no longer working. “Even though I worked out, I wasn’t able to recover. I had all kinds of little issues, like skin lesions and intestinal disorders, and all these things—to me—didn’t feel right.”
When business came to a screeching halt at the end of 2019 due to Covid-19, George made the most of his extra time by doing a deep dive into nutrition. In his research, he came across Shawn Baker on YouTube, who he initially thought was a little bit crazy. Still, after reading his book and following him for a few years, the carnivore diet started to make sense.
After finally taking the plunge, George initially found that he had trouble eating a lot of meat in one sitting, so he gradually increased the amount over time. Now, he enjoys a dozen eggs for breakfast, as well as 2 ½ pounds of meat before the day is over. At 51 years old, the symptoms he was suffering from a few years ago are completely gone, and he currently is able to train in the gym every single day—something he was unable to do even in his twenties and thirties. This sits in stark contrast to the norm in China, where George says that (due to immense stress and lifestyle choices) businessmen have an average life expectancy of 50 years.
In China, meat is still regarded as one of the healthiest things you can eat, but the idea of a meat-only diet is still considered unusual. He currently lives in the western city of Chengdu, where one of the most popular dishes is a traditional hotpot; a soup rich in bone broth and fatty beef.
George still lives on the other side of the world, and happily helps others transition to a carnivore diet as an online coach for the Revero community. He acknowledges that there is a mental obstacle when it comes to giving up vegetables—but because of his incredible results, he encourages people who worry about it give it try for one month. “See how it goes, and then you can decide for yourself whether or not it’s for you.”
