Dwayne improved asthma, mood and skin a carnivore diet

Dwayne’s Background: 


From living in Nova Scotia, Canada, growing up, I competed and coached at a national level in snowboarding. After retiring from that started an agency to represent and market brands to retailers and have been doing that ever since.


How I came to Carnivore: 


Jan 2019, I was on a snowmobile trip in the mountains and got stuck in a large drift in the woods. I was struggling a great deal to get my sled out and actually started having a panic attack because I felt so out of shape that I didn’t know how I was going to get the sled out and get back to the shelter that night.


It really hit me. I was just about to turn 41 and had let myself get so out of shape it was affecting my ability to enjoy the things I loved. I thought to myself, if I felt this way at 41, what was I going to be feeling like at 51, 61…. if this continues?


In the 12 months leading up to this, I had several kidney stone attacks (some had to be surgically removed), chronic acid reflux, asthma attacks (one caused hospitalization), and huge eczema patches. My energy was very low, and I was at my highest-ever weight.


It all came to a head that day on the trail. I knew right then and there things needed to change and change fast. I came back from that trip and started diving into YouTube videos to find out how I was going to get back in shape.


I know lots of ways of getting back in shape, as I had done it before, but I was looking for something more than just calories in calories out. I’ve done this in the past, hated what I was eating, and spent way too much time on cardio machines. There had to be a better way.


Having tried Keto for periods before and having good results, I knew low carb was going to be my best bet, but I wanted to consume as much info on this as I could. I found channels from Dr. Ken Berry and immediately liked his message. I found new info on fasting and low carb and implemented these right away. I moved from youtube to consuming podcasts. I found Peak Human and your podcast (Carnivorecast).


I have to admit I did think Carnivore was crazy at first, but the more I listened to the information, the more I came to understand us as humans and what I felt was the proper human diet, so I dove in. My wife Krissy thought I was nuts, she was happy to go Keto, but it was heavy veg keto. For the next two months after that, she could see all the changes it was having on me, especially in my eczema and mood.


I’ve had very bad eczema all my life since birth, and nothing I had done through any medical intervention or previous diet changes had ever had any success, even slightly helping, and here while eating Carnivore, it was completely going away! Benefit after benefit kept coming as I continued with this way of eating. She decided it was time to try this, and the rest is history, as they say.

Carnivore for Me Looks Like


Two meals a day, 1 lb of meat for lunch and 1-1.5 for dinner. Mostly prime rib steaks from our local grass-fed farm down the road, grilled. 2 cups of homemade bone broth per day with lots and lots of Redmond Real Salt. Homemade liver paté. Some seafood and fish eggs. Eggs and bacon are added in for variety but definitely 95% Beef. Meals are typically at 1 pm and 5 pm.




  • For sleep, magnesium Malate and Melatonin
  • 3 tsp of Real Salt a day in addition to salting food
  • Vitamin D3 much of the year as we live in Canada
  • Boron currently to free up testosterone
