This is my daughter Lauren. We live in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia. Lauren has been with us since she was adopted at 2 1/2 years old. She was born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and her body and mind is always very busy. Her main symptoms have been:
- Facial features associated with FASD.
- Lack of focus.
- Delayed development and problems in thinking, speech, movement and social skills.
- Poor judgement.
- Problems with eyesight.
She has now been Carnivore for 5 weeks, but the changes to her life occurred within 24 hours of this way of eating. We started the day before school returned after the summer holidays, and the changes in her behaviour were immediate. She’s now calm and still, absorbing information with an open brain, rocking her times tables, and her reading ability has sky rocketed. She brought home a merit award for great attitude and diligent effort in classroom activities. She spends hours participating in constructive play, and last weekend the whole family watched a movie from start to finish with everyone glued to the couch. She knows all there is to know about her favourite subject of horses, and she is crushing her twice weekly Crossfit sessions. She struggles a bit with steak but loves a good roast chicken with lots of skin. The carnivore diet has been life changing for her and her future now seems so much brighter.
This week was Clean Up Australia Day and the whole school participated in pickibg up rubbish in the neighbourhood and all students were rewarded with a Super Dooper Ice Block. Things did not go well and she had an extreme sugar high followed by the low but it was a good learning curve for her and she has declared not to partake in treats at school anymore.
Below are some photos. The first is of her partaking is a sugar overload. The other 2 are of her partaking in her healthy lifestyle.
