How Savy’s journey to health began
Savarrah, who goes by Savy, began her journey to health in 2011 after her dad passed away from ALS. She says before her dad died, he and her grandma had been researching health and nutrition to slow down his progression. At the time, her dad ate a lot of vegetables, juices, and not much sugar. Savy says it was because of her dad and her grandma that she began to understand the connection between what she was eating and how she felt.
The struggles of Savy’s pre-carnivore diet
Before finding the carnivore diet, Savy says she ate a lot of fast food, notably Taco Bell. She loved Mexican food and pizza; however, her poor diet affected her health. Savy struggled with chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs), cavities, and weight gain. Her biggest struggle, however, was her mental health.
Savy suffered from pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), anxiety, and depression. Savy says her mental health affected her daily; she often had severe mood swings and panic attacks.
From Keto to Carnivore
Savy decided to try the ketogenic diet to lose weight. She says the night before she started the diet, she ate an entire pizza and drank two liters of soda by herself. At first, on the keto diet, she ate a lot of fat bombs and other keto treats as her body transitioned to operating on low levels of carbohydrates.
Savy says she eventually became more of a “strict” keto follower, eating many plants doused in butter and cheese and a little bit of meat.
Savy says she stuck to her strict keto diet for several years, and while she lost weight and her chronic UTIs and cavities disappeared, she still struggled with her mental health. She was on several medications and began to think that struggling with her mental health would always be a part of her story.
Savy’s carnivore journey and Results
When Savy first heard of the carnivore diet, she thought it sounded crazy. However, she started researching the diet and listening to success stories. She says one story stuck out to her, particularly about a man who eliminated his anxiety with the diet. Savy was intrigued, so in April 2019, she began her carnivore journey.
Savy says almost immediately, she found that her mental clarity improved on the carnivore diet. Within two to three months, she was completely off all of her medications for anxiety and depression. She also found she had more energy, and the diet gave her more confidence.
Savy’s meat-based diet and advice
When she started the carnivore diet, Savy said she initially ate only beef, water, and salt for thirty days. Since then, she has experimented with what works best for her health and has added eggs, pasteurized bacon, some fish and goat milk products, and raw cheese. She says other processed dairy products make her instantly feel inflamed, so she avoids them at all costs.
Savy is now living a life full of freedom from her mental health struggles, and she has the carnivore diet to thank for changing her life for the better. Savy is proud of herself and has even inspired her mom to follow a meat-based keto diet. Savy says her advice to anyone looking to start the carnivore way of eating is to do it, “what do you have to lose?
