I still can’t believe it! After listening to countless carnivore podcasts for the past four years, I finally made the leap. I went strict keto four years ago and lost 70 pounds!
When I started a new job two years ago, I was too embarrassed to tell my new coworkers that I didn’t eat bread. They took me to a restaurant that served only pizza, so I ate my first bread in two years!
It was all downhill from there. I tried unsuccessfully to get back on the plan multiple times, only to fail. I even paid for books, classes, apps, and coaching. Nothing worked! I gained back 40 pounds! So debilitating.
Somehow, this time was different. Despite having to buy treats for my students, coworkers, and family, I abstained. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I’m glad I did it!
I feel great! No bloating, no reflux, no maddening addictive behaviors! I feel free!
Thank you for all your positive support and encouragement. Keep up the great work!
But here's the thing, as I was on this Keto journey, I stumbled upon something called oxalate problems. I had no clue what that was at first, but I dug deeper and found myself leaning towards the carnivore lifestyle. So, about 4 months ago, when I found Dr. Anthony Chaffee, I made the switch to strict Carnivore. And let me tell you, it has made a world of difference! The inflammation practically vanished within a couple of months. However, I wasn't really losing weight as I hoped. That's when I decided to tweak my ratios a bit. I went from 70:30 to 80:20 just a week ago, and guess what? The weight is finally shifting!
#14 Maria BDear Dr. Chaffee, Simon and all my fellow Carni-Pals,
Thank you so much for bringing this WOE to my attention,
And for all the support and smiles I have had here.
It took a while to re-condition myself to listening to my body and meeting it's need. Isn't it crazy that an animal (me) evolved from eating meat YET made the decision to avoid it for 40yrs.
Thank goodness my body is forgiving me. Eating fat and meat my body has lowered triglycerides, increased HDL, lowered blood pressure, lowered insulin and glucose, cleared all Liver markers, reduced body fat, increased testosterone, increased muscle mass, increased bone density. This lifestyle has cured me of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, migraines, neck pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, hip pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis.
As my pain and mental health resolved my energy improved and I wanted to get out, to walk, to skip and even to run, to swim and to play . At last, I have recovered the joy of living. I am now happy and able to face whatever challenges may come.
Thank you 🙏

Hi Dr. Chaffee,
I would love to join the November group, however, because I'm doing so incredibly well on a strict carnivore diet now for 7 months, (no coffee, tea, sweeteners, or spices) I am too busy!
You and Simon have helped me a lot along this journey in past challenges which have been invaluable to me. I wouldn't have the success I'm experiencing without the help I received from both of you and the community.
I now have a new job and I love it! There is no way this would have happened had I continued along in my old lifestyle. I wouldn't have had the physical energy level required, the mental clarity, or the calm presence of mind to face a fairly steep learning curve.
I feel super young and vibrant at 63 and it feels fabulous to be out in the world and engaged. I work, I swim, and I eat meat––life is good!
It was important to me that you know how much you've helped me; and still help me, as I listen to your interviews and your youtube videos.
With kind regards,
- Great energy, no need for coffee. (Still on thyroid).
- I have carpal tunnel in both wrists and don’t need to wear my braces anymore!
- I have plantar fasciitis in both feet, arthritis in my right foot, faucet joints and pre-arthritis in my shoulders. My knees have also been hurting. ALL 95% better. I used to go to the gym SIX DAYS/WK to do back and leg strengthening exercises and I don’t do any of that now!
- This is the only diet I’ve ever done (and I’ve done a lot) that has kicked my hot buttered biscuit, chocolate, and donut cravings.
- I’ve lost 12 pounds.
- My mental fortitude is a lot better. I’m still depressed but I can weather it MUCH better. Far more cheerful.
- My eyesight has improved!
- Never gassy or bloated.
- Never hypo glycemic. Can fast!
- May have convinced my 15 year old to give up vegetarianism at the least, and maybe go carnivore at the best.
May have convinced my 19 year old recently diagnosed schizoaffective to try carnivore, or at least keto, or at least no sugar, then wheat, then dairy. Please keep up prayers for them both!
Thank you Dr. Chafee, Simon, and everyone who has responded to posts and posted awesome shares!"

Price of admission is covered (10 days in).
I got my salt right, I got my fat right, my portions are right, my steaks are aging in the fridge, I’ve made a bunch of new recipes (even entertained some sad eaters with carni!) I would ask more questions but I keep finding the answers in the course.

"5 months eating a carnivore style plan and my life long gut pains bloating spasms and reoccurring. SIBO-C is fully resolved. Arthritic pains in my thumbs and toes gone.
Energy is stable and sustained.

First month on 'How to Carnivore Challenge' and the effects have only been positive.
The sleep quality has gone through the roof, sleeping right through the night, waking up so refreshed and rested, no night sweats.
Skin has brightened and feels smoother.
Knee joint pain has started easing and commuting to and from work is so much better as a result, energy has improved, used to feel so lethargic.
Oh and before I forget, I've lost 10kg (22lbs).
Thanks to this wonderful community for all the chats, advice, inspiration, Q&A sessions etc. I've learned so much. A HUGE thank you to Dr. Chaffee and Simon for all you do!!
Much appreciated. Keep spreading the word! 😇💫

This month has been a massive win.
Jan 31st I was 78.9kgs, suffering with bloating and symptoms of IBS, as well as having gut issues due to polyps in the gall bladder and a large cyst in the pancreas. I was addicted to both coffee and alcohol and maintaining a strict diet just wasn’t following those addictions.
29 days of strict meat and water later and I’m 72.7kgs, not bloated at all. My stools have corrected themselves. I have no interest in coffee or alcohol. My muscles are more pronounced and I have more energy all day. I no longer feel the issues in my gut like I did. An ultrasound next week will tell me where the cyst, etc are at.
This has been an amazing turnaround in just 29 days. Can’t wait to see how I am after 6 months. Thanks to this community for the information and the inspiration.
