Michael is 44 years old and now weighs 198 pounds. His carnivore healing journey has helped him improve his physical and mental health, and he shared that progress with us.
At the end of 2018, Michael found himself overweight, saying, “On 12/31/2018 I weighed 233.8 lbs.” He had been experiencing chronic low back and hip pain for 15 years. Michael’s snoring had gotten worse, and he was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Michael says that he had “no energy for the last 30 years.” Sleep apnea is a common cause of fatigue, and many people never realize that they aren’t breathing properly at night.
Michael says that he “always had a couple ingrown hairs on each of my legs.” He also found that he had a balding spot on the back of his head, his forehead had gotten “wrinkle lines,” and his skin complexion wasn’t as good as he thought it should have been.
Michael found that his ability to control himself and feel emotionally balanced was compromised. He was also having problems with mental clarity. His story suggests that these issues were affecting his marriage. Michael says, “On January 1, 2018 I went full carnivore.”
He found that after only three days of eating a carnivore diet, he “had 15 years of chronic low back and hip pain disappear.”
Michael lost 40 lbs over a 6-month period, then he “lost 5 more lbs during his first month of working out (month 7 got down to 188 lbs).”
Even his sleep apnea improved, as he says, “2-3 months in, stopped snoring,” he says. “Sometime early on in the diet, my diagnosed sleep apnea condition went away. I know this because for the first time in the last 30 years, I woke up with energy. Never knew what that was like (even when I was a teenager).”
Michael’s ingrown hairs have lessened: “I’ve had 1 ingrown hair in the last 6 months.” He notes that his “skin complexion got better…wrinkle lines on my forehead are almost gone. They had gotten to be a part of the new me, and for some reason now, 11 months later, they are almost completely gone.”
Michael says, “11 months later, and the balding spot on the back of my head is almost gone. Literally, have thicker hair now.”
He has seen a meaningful boost in energy too, calling it “A phenomenal increase in mental clarity; energy from the morning until night. No more ups and downs of the carbohydrate eating lifestyle.”
Michael “started weight training and without supplements put on a solid 7 lbs of muscle over about a 5-month period.”
He credits his ongoing marriage to the carnivore diet as well, saying that the carnivore diet “likely saved my marriage (all praise to God for bringing me to carnivore). My emotional balance and ability to control myself VASTLY improved. Hard to put into words how much more emotionally stable I am on a carnivore diet.”
