Sean is 23 years old and has already had a tough life. Suffering from depression and anxiety has made it challenging for him to work, a common issue among people with those conditions. He says “The carnivore diet has changed my life, I suffered with depression and anxiety that caused me to quit multiple jobs, and now they are completely gone.”
Sean found the carnivore diet, and at the time of his success story, he had been following the diet for three months and “eating as much meat as I can.”
He had a cannabis (marijuana) addiction problem that was hard to shake. Because marijuana tends to reduce a person’s motivation, it can make it very challenging for some users to stay employed while using this drug. It does help a great deal with anxiety; however, not being employed may also contribute to anxiety in the long run. Many people find it challenging to stop using marijuana, though it’s not thought to be as addictive as narcotics or similar drugs.
Sean was able to easily stop, saying, “I had a cannabis addiction that seems to have faded away” in a period of only three months after starting the carnivore diet.
Sean had hay fever-type seasonal allergies most of his life, and “I learned that my hayfever allergies are mainly triggered by gluten and dairy.” After three months on the carnivore diet, Sean reports that his “symptoms have reduced so much I no longer have to take antihistamines every day.”
This frequent symptom may be brought on by oxidative stress, inflammation, or unstable blood sugar levels. When you have brain fog, you just can’t think clearly or quickly, and irritability can quickly follow. Josh found relief from his brain fog through his carnivore diet and says, “I have no more brain fog. I can wake up in the mornings. Mental cognition feels the best it’s ever been!”
Like many young people, Sean has had some problems with acne. He reports that “My acne is 99% gone” after his change of diet! Since the skin does mirror our health, it’s a great sign.
Many people experience intestinal discomforts from eating plant-based foods, in part because of the toxins, like lectins, that such foods contain. Sean found complete relief from his heartburn, as well as his gut discomforts. These problems vanished after he began his carnivore diet.
It has become very common to see young people lose their health at an early age, and it’s clear that Sean was on this road as well.
Returning to the ancestral human diet, which our bodies evolved to eat, has clearly been key to Sean regaining his health. From the inside out, from gut health to skin health, he has improved. The ability to beat drug addiction, and heal from brain fog, indicates that his brain has healed as well.
Sean is grateful for the progress and says, “The health benefits I have experienced are so vast I’m probably forgetting some.”

so cool and inspiring Mike! kudos to all the effort and self-control.
Thanks so much!
Hotness! You look fantastic!!
You are completely killing my internal narrative that I’m too old to fully switch…thanks, jerk! 🙂
Just fantastic Mike. I wish I could find a doctor in Adelaide South Australia who is a carnivore. Mine just says nothing at all so I figure he thinks I’m mad. It’s so not popular to eat this way down here despite 60% of our people being fat and, or, sick. At least, like you, I’m not sick anymore.
You mentioned restless leg. Did you mean Restless Leg Syndrome? Because i am taking serious medication for it every night? I am doing keto. i will try Carnivore to see what happens to my RLS.
Thank you for sharing your story.
Great job, Mike! Do you recall how long it took for sleep to improve?
