Chris improved his diabetes and mental health with a carnivore diet

Chris’ Health Issues 


On Christmas Day 2016, I was admitted to the hospital with an infection on my left arm. It turned out to be necrotizing fasciitis, which required numerous debridement surgeries and skin grafts. I spent seven weeks in the hospital and a year recovering. 


In my research on the condition, I discovered how much metabolic health contributes to this condition. I was nearly 300 pounds and a type 2 diabetic. I wasn’t taking care of myself at all and felt miserable. Medications were ineffective, and I was getting worse.


Changing to a Carnivore Diet


In April 2018, I finally made the choice to make a change. I did a lot of research and found the ketogenic community. I dove right in. I quickly began losing weight while eating very low carbs and incorporating intermittent fasting. 


I forced myself to eat some vegetables (traditional dogma pressured me to) but quickly found the carnivore community after seeing Dr Shawn Baker on the Joe Rogan podcast. Since then, I’ve been on an all-meat diet and have felt better and better month over month. 


Today I am in the best shape of my life, am no longer diabetic, and enjoy living and my family more than ever.
