James improved his mental health on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

James has been pursuing health for decades, working hard and “training for physical health.” Through this journey, he participated in many different sports, from martial arts to working at building up his physique for bodybuilding. He also participated in strongman sports, which is a powerlifting discipline.

Health Issues

James had some ongoing health problems, having to use inhalers to control his asthma. In addition, he found that maintaining a stable emotional life was a challenge, and he had to take medications to stabilize his mental health. He also “always had body issues” and these just fed into the circle of problems.

Finding a New Gym-and a New Diet!

In his ongoing search to find more ways to improve himself, James looked for another gym and found one that offered a new training system he hadn’t worked with before, Nautilus. After that, he “Finally discovered carnivore” and of course also “discovered Dr Shawn Baker, got the book and got the bug.”

It seems the contributions of Dr. Baker are responsible for many of us finding this way of eating, and saving our health!

Carnivore Begins Its Magic

One morning in particular showed James that he was on the right track to restore his health and improve to the next level: “one morning in January 2020, I woke up with such clarity of mind, felt like I had a goal and focus.” Over the next three months, James would feel better and better and found that his chronic problems started to just go away: “since then, I’ve noticed vast improvements in physical health – use of inhalers, gone, use of meds for mental health, gone.”

Strong And Happy

As his body began to burn up his body fat for fuel, instead of using carbohydrates, James began to see his body composition change and the fat pounds fall away: “Up to now, I’m down from 17 stone 13pounds, to 15stone 7pounds.” For those not used to the British weight system, he went from 251 pounds to 217 pounds, losing 34 pounds in just three months.

A Brighter Looking Future

Since his physical and mental health have improved so dramatically, James has seen his whole outlook shift for the better. “I feel so much better, always had body issues, which have now gone.”

He also didn’t lose any muscle mass in the process, which means that he made great improvements in his overall body composition. In fact, he has probably gained muscle mass as he lost weight: “I’m still strong, in fact stronger than ever!”


James has also seen his personal self-esteem get boosted by his new diet: “My self confidence has gone through the roof! And for someone who is very vulnerable to mental health this is a biggie.”

He is now a carnivore diet believer, and he is setting a great example for the rest of us. James has learned that the carnivore movement is much more than a diet, as it can benefit so many parts of our lives.

“The journey continues… this is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle!”
