Emily healed from connective tissue disease, GERD, and fatigue on the carnivore diet

Emily’s Journey: From Keto to Carnivore


Three years ago, Emily was simply looking for a way to lose weight before her wedding. On the advice of her father, she started doing the ketogenic diet. She lost weight for the wedding but was still generally miserable.




In her early teens, Emily was diagnosed with a debilitating connective tissue disease. She was on several medications to manage her chronic pain and fatigue, but after years of disappointment didn’t have a hope of getting better.


Unexpected Benefits of the Carnivore Diet


Then, after becoming pregnant with her first daughter, Emily says her body began craving meat—only meat—so much so that she was dreaming of sausages and ground beef at night! “I was like…I wonder if it would be okay. If I just give in and just eat meat because my body wants it…, and that’s when I found Shawn Baker!


Here was this crazy guy that said it was okay, so I dug into the research, and I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna give it a go—and never looked back since.”


Following her cravings with no intention of curing anything, Emily was amazed at what happened next. “I had no clue it would help my health! Basically, as the days went by—after I had just started to eat meat—I thought, ‘What the heck! Here I am, fat and pregnant, with all these disorders, and I woke up, and I had a really good day. 


I was like, ‘Wow, this is great! I will probably crash out tomorrow.’ But tomorrow, I had a good day—the next day, I had a good day. I noticed my inflammation disappearing. I’m not fatigued. I’m not depressed—I’m not anxious. 


I’m able to put the crib together. I thought pregnancy was going to be so difficult for me with all these disorders, and as soon as I gave myself the okay and went into Carnivore, I just kept waking up and having good days. I kept waiting on the other shoe to drop—and it never did!”


Meat-First Approach for a Healthy Family


Now thriving and feeling well for over two years, Emily has since welcomed a second baby and says both of her kids are in excellent health. 


While her children aren’t fully Carnivore, they do eat a lot of meat, and it’s always served as the first course at every meal. Emily also believes their meat-first approach has contributed to the fact that her children have always been excellent sleepers.


Helping Others in the Carnivore Community


As for the future, Emily finds true happiness in helping other people in the carnivore community as a coach with Revero online. 


Working with new mothers, expectant mothers, hopeful mothers, and those recovering from addiction, she adds that it’s often the best part of her week. “It’s so enjoyable because I like to see people have the same thing that happened to me. 


You wake up; you have a good day. You think it’s an anomaly—you think it’s a stand-alone experience—and you keep waking up! I want to see people keep waking up to a good day.”
