Erik improved digestion, fitness, treated allergies on carnivore diet

My Journey Into The Carnivore Lifestyle


I’ve been approximately 90% carnivore for the last nine months. I’ll never forget the first time I came across the subreddit r/zerocarb. I read the group description and laughed at the part about not eating any plants.


Unlearning Conventional Science


I vividly remember telling myself, “These people are crazy…everyone knows we need to get plant nutrients and fiber”. This kicked off a 9-month investigation into what being healthy means. For reference, I’m an engineer by profession, so I tend to try and read everything about a subject.


The Carnivore lifestyle has been a massive journey in expanding my understanding of the world and what conventional science has taught us. All of us, and I mean all of us, were taught the food pyramid. It’s been one hell of a journey just unlearning what is good and healthy for us.


Physical Benefits Of A Carnivorous Diet


People at work critique me every day about my eating habits, but here I am with zero health problems, in the best shape of my life, and to top it all off, nobody believes I look 33. Everyone thinks I look like I’m in my mid to late twenties.


I’m fortunate enough to haven’t had any major health issues in my life. The only thing I really had was irritable bowel syndrome and allergies. I look back now, and I never had proper bowel movements. On top of that, I always woke up to urinate at night. Those are the two main issues I had in my twenties. Some of it was probably excessive alcohol use, but I contribute most of the IBS to my diet.


Once I switched to carnivore, both symptoms disappeared within a week. I honestly could not remember the last time I slept through the entire night without waking up to use the restroom.


The second major benefit of the carnivore lifestyle was my allergies went away. I’ve always had the problem of an itchy throat and only being able to breathe through one nostril at a time. Within three weeks, my allergies were gone, and I could breathe!


I’ve been playing sports, working out, and generally interested in health my entire life. I’ve noticed my endurance while running has increased dramatically. I can work out much longer, and my strength has significantly increased! If I miss a few days of working out, I don’t lose strength or body composition like I used to.


The Environmental Impact Of A Carnivorous Lifestyle


I believe we are on the brink of a health revolution. The more the carnivore lifestyle grows, the more propaganda for veganism grows. Seeing it develop over the last few years has been very interesting.


I aim to help Dr. Baker on the research/analytical side of the carnivore movement. I can’t help but think about what we have left to unlearn. How much of this have we been fed?


The single biggest benefit of this carnivorous lifestyle hasn’t been anything physical. It’s opened my mind to endless possibilities for improving my life. It’s changed the way I view our economy.


It’s changed my life in that I want local food sourced, and I’ve picked up hunting as a sport. From adopting the carnivorous lifestyle, I’ve learned how destructive monocropping is on the land and how beneficial it is for ruminants to graze the land instead.


The Importance Of Thinking For Yourself


Another important aspect of the Carnivore lifestyle is it’s taught me how easy groupthink can be. There is a huge push right now that wants to blame global warming on “cow farts” when in fact “cow farts” have an insignificant impact on our environment.


Just think for a moment how many resources it takes to get fruit from one end of the globe to the other. A carnivorous lifestyle has helped me think for myself, listen to my body, and improve the lives of my loved ones.
