German Shepherd diagnosed with cancer thriving on carnivore diet

Corinne, mom of a lovable 6-year-old german shepherd, got the kind of news every pet parent dreads: Tiber had colon cancer, and the vet believed it was incurable. Faced with this terrible news, Corinne and her family had a decision to make. Would they proceed with surgery and cancer treatments to extend her life by a year, or would they forgo the stress of that and let her live out her life for the next 2-5 months?

“We were heartbroken,” Corinne recalls. “We decided not to put her through those things since they could not cure her anyway. I decided to make her last months of life the best that I could and I accidentally put her on a carnivore diet.” Without any previous knowledge of the healing effects of a carnivore diet, Corinne decided to “spoil” Tiber and ditch the dog food. For the next few months, Tiber enjoyed steaks, burgers, chicken, pork, and organ meat.

This was quite an upgrade from Tiber’s typical diet of dry dog food and store-bought treats! “I threw all the dog treats out and her treats became real bacon and cheese instead of those little bones and cookies. We fed her like a queen, and gave her all the best steaks and everything we could find,” Corinne shares with Revero coach Tracy. “I wanted to make it the best for her.”

To everyone’s surprise, Tiber began to show signs of recovery. “The craziest thing happened!” Corinne explains. “She started getting better, her bowel movements cleared up, and she started taking walks again. Her energy just exploded, and she stopped throwing up. It was like she became a different dog!” Corinne was puzzled by it, because the vet had set her expectations for a zero chance of recovery. “The vet told us her quality of life would start going downhill, but we were seeing the opposite happen.

Corinne joked with her husband that if she ever got cancer, she should start eating what Tiber’s eating, because it’s making her come alive again. “After seeing her success, I decided to join her in solidarity and have started my own journey and have never felt better!” She’s been following a carnivore diet, too, for the past 8 weeks. “Whatever I make for myself, I make for Tiber, and I feel great, too! I have tons of energy, I’m starting to lose weight, and I sleep better. It’s like we’re on this little journey together!

For the last 16 months, Tiber has been thriving. She receives vet check-ups every three months, and the vet is completely blown away at how well she is doing. “The vet actually was concerned about Tiber’s all-meat diet, and was saying that we should get her back on dog food so that she has enough nutrients. We’re not doing that, though, it makes no sense as she’s doing so much better now. Why would I change anything?”

Corinne enjoys working from home with Tiber at her side, and is happy to share their success on a carnivore diet. “I think it’s worth it for yourself and for your pet. You might find you get amazing results like we did!

Adam overcomes plant-based diet, has improvements on carnivore diet

Discover how Adam (and his dog!) both overcame the negative effects of a plant-based diet, and the many benefits that have come along with the Carnivore Diet, including better athletic performance and recovery, better digestion, mental clarity, and clearer skin.

Adam is 42 years old and has been following the Carnivore Diet for two and a half years. In his late thirties, Adam was consuming up to two pounds of fruit and vegetables per day. He even foraged for dandelions and would consume them and other oxalate-heavy greens by the handful every day.

No stranger to trying new approaches to eating and health, Adam eventually became interested in weight loss and experimented with paleo, keto, and fasting. “Then I discovered Dr. Shawn Baker talking about the Carnivore Diet, and I saw that he wasn’t dying, so I decided to give it a try myself.”

Since following the Carnivore Diet, Adam enjoyed fitness and strength improvements as soon as his first few weeks. “I’ve experienced greater strength during my workouts, higher energy levels, and much faster recovery from intense exercise.” He goes on to describe his specific routine and notes that he’s able to accomplish all of it in a fasted state.

His results led him to look more into the ancestral lifestyles and he implemented barefoot-style running shoes into his routine. “After learning about the Carnivore Diet, I got more interested in the Paleolithic lifestyle and how humans can thrive and optimize their potential.”

In addition to his fitness and endurance, Adam has enjoyed amazing oral hygiene and gum health that began as soon as he started the Carnivore Diet. “When I was younger, I drank a lot of sugary and caffeinated drinks and used hard-bristled toothbrushes. I basically destroyed my gums. I had seven surgeries in my thirties. But now, in my early forties, my gums are healthy! The dentist actually called over the other staff to show them how white my teeth are due to all the minerals in the meat I’m eating.”

Adam’s skin also improved, and he no longer suffers from eczema and sores on his tongue due to autoimmune reactions. His skin is much less sensitive, and he no longer gets painful sunburns.

Most recently, Adam has experimented with the “raw carnivore” approach, and consumes raw beef regularly. While this approach isn’t for everyone, Adam found it gave him even better digestion. Adam explains, “It’s an indication to me that we evolved to eat raw meat.”

To Adam’s delight, his 12 year old dog has also experienced incredible results and healing after switching to an all-meat diet. Previously on a plant-based diet for nine years, Adam’s furry friend suffered from missing teeth and chronic fungal ear infections. “He’s nearly 12 years old now, and everyone thinks he is a puppy because he’s so energetic and full of life, and so fit as a carnivore!”

Adam’s mental clarity has also improved on the Carnivore Diet. “My brain works like a machine”, he says. “I used to need a mental break after 10 minutes of intense concentration, but now I can concentrate for long periods of time.”

Cravings for plant foods have completely gone away, and with it, any seasonal allergies Adam used to suffer from. “I used to have hayfever, joint pain, and itchiness, all those are gone now.”

Adam’s final word of advice to new carnivores? “Persistence! My results didn’t come right away. Now, at the two-and-a-half year mark, I’m thriving physically. Keep up with it, and don’t quit.”
