Mitch improves digestion, mood, skin, and weight loss on a carnivore diet

I tried it for 90 days, and based on the positive results, I’ve decided to keep going. I ate 99% beef for the majority of this time, a little chicken, lamb, pork, and fish. I failed a few times before getting the hang of it and have been strict for 90 days.

List of health issues:

  • IBS (Mostly fixed)
  • Depressions and
  • Anxiety (virtually gone)
  • Circulation (about the same)
  • Dry Skin/pimples (lessened but variable)
  • Fatigue (variable to IBS flare-ups. Improved recently with D3 supplementation)
  • Inflammation or general body pains (variable but improved)



It took me six weeks to adapt properly. Before that, I would feel worn out halfway through my workout or shift. It was like I had a smaller gas tank, and once I hit a point, my body just wanted to rest.


I lost roughly 3-4kgs eating as much as I like. My caloric intake varied between 2,500 and 3,500 depending on how I felt. I would mostly eat two meals a day within an 8-10 hour window. After week two, food cravings had subsided. What I used to think was hunger was really carbohydrate cravings. It’s no wonder your mood stabilizes on zero-carb/keto.


My strength in the gym has not been impacted. As long as my energy is ok, then my performance is good as ever. The weight loss has lowered my body fat %, and I’m at my leanest (69-70kg). I’m very happy about my physique.


I feel more focused and driven as long as I’m not in a fatigued state. Fatigue had been ruling me some of the time but supplementing D3 has helped tremendously. I work evenings, and we’ve just come into Spring, so it only makes sense. The mental clarity and lack of depression/anxiety are enough to keep me going with this diet. I don’t know whether to accredit that to ketogenesis, low inflammation, low allergy, nutrient-dense animal foods, or all of it.


Key Lessons

  • Adaptation takes 100% commitment.
  • You will fail. Try again.
  • Six weeks strict is a minimum to test results.
  • Never make more than one change at a time.
  • Stick to the foods you set.
  • Be cautious of rendered fat. Too much results in diarrhea for some people.
  • Be cautious of eating too close to bedtime.
  • Keep a diary. Track your symptoms and food consumption every day.
