Gabby improved hormonal imbalances on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

My name is Gabby and I’m a 40 yr old female new to the carnivore diet. Here’s my story: 

 

A little back story

I have always had thyroid issues since my 20’s (Graves disease and Hashimotos). I was on several medications and nothing worked. In 2010 I listened to my doctors and had a complete thyroidectomy, a decision I regret every single day. After my surgery I gained 50 lbs and then went on a Paleo style diet. I felt “better” but still suffered with migraines, skin issues and severe hormonal imbalance and continued weight gain. Then I jumped into vegetarianism then eventually veganism. Then I started feeling worse with depression and feelings of impending doom. My anxiety was on a 100 and my teeth started aching. I ended up needing 7k in dental work. I realized veganism wasn’t for me. I then switched to keto. I started losing weight and feeling much better. I am a life long lover of vegetables and figured the more organic and raw the better. I bought every expensive blender and juicer I could find. I was always hungry and my hormones were out of control right before my menstrual cycle, so I cut all fruit. Fast forward I stumbled across the podcast with Joe Rogan and Shawn Baker and decided to give the all meat diet a try. That was 2 months ago and I haven’t looked back.

I have tried every diet out there on a quest to feel as best as I can given my circumstances. This way of eating has not only helped me lose weight but I feel stronger physically and mentally.

 

Here’s what I’ve experienced after 2 months:

  • Starting weight: 230 lbs
  • Today’s weight: 203 lbs
  • Skin feels softer and more supple
  • Depression and anxiety are gone
  • I’m able to deal with minor inconveniences without wanting to cry
  • My digestion have improved 100%
  • No bloating or flatulence
  • No menstrual cramping
  • My hair and nails feel thicker and stronger
  • My teeth and gum health has improved
  • I no longer spend hours in the kitchen meal prepping
  • My gains in the gym have doubled and recovery is faster
  • I have no cravings for bad foods

Here’s what I eat:

  • Ribeye steaks
  • Veal liver twice a week
  • Egg yolk (egg whites don’t agree with me)
  • Turkey wings and necks (they are nice and gelatinous)
  • Wild Meats like ground yak and ostrich
  • Veal sweet breads (pancreas and surrounding organs)
  • Bone marrow
  • Wild Salmon
  • Sardines
  • Hydrolized Collagen

In closing

I have tried every diet out there on a quest to feel as best as I can given my circumstances. This way of eating has not only helped me lose weight but I feel stronger physically and mentally. I thank all of those who have gone against the medical establishment and conventional dietary guidelines to put their story’s out there. It has helped change my health and my life. I will never go back.
