Randy is a 67-year-old contractor who’s been carnivore for two years. He had cancer, two heart attacks, and four stints, and was a type 2 diabetic with neuropathy in his feet. His balance was so bad that he almost fell off a roof because he couldn’t feel his toes.
Randy had an arthritic, painful neck from a diving accident and extremely painful, swollen knees. Before he started carnivore he was scheduled for knee replacement surgery.
He had psoriasis for 55 years over eighty percent of his body and was mentally tormented by the constant itching he felt. At one point, he was unable to work and got very depressed. Randy became very sedentary, weighed 285 pounds, and needed afternoon naps.
Before carnivore, Randy ate chicken breasts and a lot of salads, quinoa, peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, black beans, cashews, and potatoes. He saw a nutritionist who told him he’d have to learn to live with his pain.
Randy’s friend, Gary, looked good, lost 50 pounds, and was off his meds. Like Randy, Gary was a type 2 diabetic and had stints. Randy says he “so desperately wanted what he had.” Gary told him he was on the carnivore diet.
At the time Randy was on over 14 different medications. Randy recalls that the “carnivore diet went against everything that I was taught nutritionally.” But he trusted Gary and decided to try it.
Randy committed to 30 days on carnivore and because the results “were so undeniable” he says he’ll never go back.
The first thing Randy noticed was that his depression lifted. After two weeks his arthritis pain diminished. After his first month, Randy could go up and down the stairs—he used to take one step at a time because of knee pain. And he no longer needed knee surgery because his pain and swelling were seventy to eighty percent better.
Today, Randy has been carnivore for two years. He reports that his neck pain, psoriasis, and neuropathy in his feet are all gone. He was able to discontinue all meds except for one for his prostate.
His energy level is great. Randy is up at 7 or 8 and goes to sleep at midnight. Today he weighs 170 pounds. “I feel like I’m in somebody else’s body.”
Randy feels focused and sharp again. No longer does he go to his shop unable to remember what he needed when he gets there.
After his last heart attack, he lost forty percent of his heart mass and was told he would never work again. About nine months later an echocardiogram revealed he had 100 percent heart function. His cardiologist told Randy to keep doing what he was doing. His primary doctor said his blood values have never been better.
Recently Randy helped his son with his house and maintained a hefty schedule, working for 7 weeks, 7 days a week, 12 hours each day. He’s so happy that he could sustain this, and says, “I want to pass it on.”
