Jules came to carnivore because of his struggles with mental illness. He found people in the community who had recovered from depression, anxiety, and eating disorders eating meat.
Jules is now a Carnivore.Diet coach. He feels his experiences can give people hope for healthy and happy lives.
At age 7, his family moved away from his grandparents, who fed him sausage, bacon, and eggs. When he started eating the low-fat, high-carb foods his parents thought were healthy, his life completely changed. He gained an enormous amount of weight and was anxious. “I went from an extremely happy little boy to extremely timid and shy.”
Since adolescence, Jules has suffered from anorexia and bulimia. At 17, he started seeing a psychiatrist for chronic depression. He was diagnosed with bipolar l in 2008.
For over 20 years, Jules experienced mental illness.
In 2008, he couldn’t function day to day—he worked for a bit and then would get tired, and his brain would shut down. “I couldn’t function at a job or at school.” For six years, Jules was unable to work.
Last year, he used crutches or a cane to walk. He was in constant pain and mental anguish.
He tried for three years to manage his mental health using medication but was constantly depressed and gained 200 pounds.
