Describe what a Typical Day of Eating Looks like for you.

Describe the health changes you have experienced since going keto/carnivore.

I was 47 years old and had been in constant pain 24 hours a day in almost all my muscles, tendons, ligaments, haircuts, bursae in the neck, shoulders, arms, hands, hips, legs, knees and feet, since September 2014.

I was exhausted from the pain… The doctors gave me painkillers, rheumatism medication, and stomach protectors. Because of the stomach protectors, my body was unable to absorb vitamins from my diet. I started to feel worse.

Work was no longer possible. I couldn’t do anything anymore, but the doctors said: “You’ll just have to learn to live with it…” But how?

A physiotherapist gave me the tip to look at my diet and advised me to read the book “The food hourglass.” Slowly I started eliminating foods. I cut out sugar.

I went from Paleo, Low Carb, Keto and now Carnivore. I have been completely pain-free for a few years now, have better mental health, no more depression/suicidal thoughts, no more constipation. More energy and 30 kg lighter!

In addition to eating carnivore, I also fast. 21 hours of no food and 3 hours of eating. I drink more than a liter of water twice a day.

Self-knowledge: I now know that I can and continue to function without food for a while.
