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 you tube 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 8 months.
Prior to starting I was in the following state.
- Weight 115kg
- Type 2 Diabetic with an Hba1c of 107 mmol/mol
- Arthritis in wrists and knees
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferer.
- 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 demeanour and a lightness in my step. Within 4 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 get better and better) 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 about 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 learnt 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 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.
