Rob improved his diabetes on a carnivore diet

My name is Rob, a 51-year-old male from Hamilton, New Zealand, and I’d love to share my testimony with you and everyone else.


I started my carnivore journey after watching Joe Rogan’s show on YouTube with Jordan Peterson telling his wonderful story about himself and his daughter. This would be around the beginning of June 2018, so I’ve now been living the carnivore lifestyle for eight months.



Prior to starting, I was following.

  • Weight 115kg
  • Type 2 Diabetic with an Hba1c of 107 mmol/mol
  • Arthritis in wrists and knees
  • Irritable Bowel
  • Syndrome sufferer.
  • My sight had swapped from short-sighted to long-sighted.

My diet since starting has consisted of only Beef, Lamb, Mutton, Chicken, and Fish nose-to-tail eating, accompanied by cheese, butter, milk, cream, and eggs.

My only concession to the plant world is tea and coffee.


Within a week of starting, I began to experience unbelievable clarity of mind, an improvement in my general mood and demeanor, and a lightness in my step. Within four weeks, almost everything had changed, and I honestly felt like I was in my teens again, and my arthritic symptoms had completely disappeared along with my IBS.


Today my Type 2 diabetes is gone, and my last Hba1c is down to 39 mmol/mol (less than 41 is non-diabetic), and crazily my sight reversed back from long-sighted to my normal short-sightedness. My weight is now 88 kg.

Now that I’ve renewed my health (and it just continues to improve), I’ll never go back to plant consumption. There is something in me that just knows we were always meant to live this way.


I no longer give food and eating a second thought. My life isn’t consumed by food -what to eat, what not to eat, when to eat, how to eat, where to eat, and so on.


Life is so much simpler and happier. I’ve been so amazed by what’s happened to me that I now feel driven to share what I’ve learned and have begun a health coaching course (6 weeks into it) so that I can articulate what I know into a palatable discourse with others.


But as Carnivores, we are under siege, and I’m truly worried that the political will is against us. Every day we are being told that a plant-based diet will save us and save the world. It’s not, and it won’t and is, in fact, killing us all slowly. So please, I urge you all to tell your stories. Let’s accumulate the data that can prove once and for all that Meat Heals and is, in fact, the Perfect Human Diet.


Kind regards,
