Jared gets to be a father again on a carnivore diet

530lbs, IBS, pinched lumbar three nerve, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, no will to live. What do all of these things have in common? No one would want to be even one of them, much less all. 


Up until recently, all of these things defined ME. This was my life or lack thereof. My name is Jared. I’m 29 years old, a single father, and a man who has finally found success.

My First Try At Carnivore


I have tried every diet you can think of, from vegan to paleo to the grapefruit diet. Nothing ever worked. My health concerns and weight even increased.


At the end of August 2017, I saw an interview with Dr. Shawn Baker with Rogue Health and Fitness that gave me hope. He was talking about a Zero Carb/Carnivore diet. It seemed simple enough, and I set out to do it. It lasted two days.


Keto Was A Better Start


Well, luck would have it that I had friends that were doing keto, which seemed to be low carb enough to maybe work. I started on September 8th and hoped for the best. It was difficult, but I lost 11 lbs in my first week. When you see results like that, you start to get very determined.


After my first month, I lost 40 lbs. In my second month, I moved to a Low Carb, High Fat/Keto combined diet. On my birthday at the end of October, my doctor told me I no longer needed to take my diabetes medications. My diet was keeping my blood sugar manageable at 120.

When you see results like that, you start to get very determined.

Still Back Pain


My back pain hurt me less every day. After sustaining a pinched nerve, due to a wreck, I was in at 16, my weight gain had done nothing but make my pain worse and damaged my back further over the years. Though I was improving with my diet, I was still in physical therapy as late as December 2017.


Carnivore Solved The Pain


Two weeks after I started the carnivore diet at the beginning of December, my pain was minuscule. For the last two years, I had to use a cane to get around and couldn’t stand for longer than half an hour.


Well, I quit physical therapy after those two weeks and have never looked back. I eat all meats, and sometimes eggs and cheese. I drink water when thirsty. I’m rarely hungry, and food (and even water) tastes better than before.


Carnivore Wins


After one month of keto, two months of LCHF, and three months of Carnivore, I can tell you that Carnivore is the best thing I’ve ever done. My health is so much better. As a matter of fact, do you remember the attributes that I started this testimonial with?

I have a craving to live life to the fullest and a need to live the best life I can for my daughter. I will be the best man and dad I can be for her.

Here Are My Current Updates


After six months (last three months carnivore), I am 404lbs; a loss of 126lbs. I have no IBS and only have pain from my pinched lumbar three nerve after 6-8 hours of standing (working out and being active lessens pain).


My BG is constantly between 95 and 105, and diabetes meds are no longer required. I have no more high blood pressure, between 118/72 and 126/78 consistently. I have only minor anxiety (it was bad enough to send me to the hospital twice) and no depression.


For My Daughter


I still have no will to live. That’s just too simple and makes me feel like I’m just willing to exist. Instead, I have a craving to live life to the fullest and a need to live the best life I can for my daughter.


I will be the best man and dad I can be for her. I will make sure she is taught the truth about health and will make sure she never has to struggle with her weight, as I have for 2/3 of my life.


My final thought? Eat meat, drink water, and be healthy. It’s as simple as that.


Thank you, Dr. Baker. One little video saved a life. Keep going. It gets to be
