Joe improved digestion on carnivore diet

Share This Post

Hello, my name is Joe. I have eaten a beef-dominant ketogenic diet since about March 2018. I have felt many benefits from switching my way of eating to one which prioritizes ruminant meat (beef, lamb, etc.).
 

Logging and measuring

For about six months leading up to the DEXA body scan above where I had 8.9% body fat, I did detailed food logging; I ate 2.3 pounds of ruminant meat and over 2 eggs per day over that stretch (along with other low-carb, low-omega-6 foods). Though I track what I eat (out of personal interest and so that I can accurately tell others), eating this way enables me to maintain terrific body composition without counting calories or being scientific; I can trust my body’s signals.
 

Many improvements

I was fortunate to still be in decent metabolic health when I began eating this way, but I have still noticed many improvements. Since eating this way I have significantly reduced acne breakouts and stomachaches. I spend a lot less time on the toilet than I used to, and now my bowel movements are much less loud, less messy, and less uncomfortable. The digestive health improvements have been tremendous; even after eating a large meal, I feel ready to immediately get in a good workout. Also, my seasonal allergies have been noticeably reduced. Subjectively, my mental clarity and my recovery from weightlifting workouts and sports is much improved. At 32, I feel none of the lingering aches and pains that many of my friends and rec league teammates discuss. I’m grateful to Dr. Shawn Baker for introducing the idea of a meat-based diet to me and so many others. This way of eating and mindset changes have fed off one another to allow me to take more control over my life.
