Allison's story is like a wake-up call about how the Carnivore diet can totally turn things around. She fought depression, arthritis, and weight struggles head-on and ended up winning big time. Her journey is all about staying tough and showing us that anything's possible when you keep pushing forward.
Interviewer: Hi Allison, thank you for sharing your incredible journey with us. Can you tell us why you decided to start the Carnivore lifestyle and what your goals were?
Allison: Absolutely. Hi everyone, I'm Allison, 51 years old. I embarked on the Carnivore lifestyle primarily to shed some weight and alleviate the heavy burden of depression that I've carried with me for most of my life. Additionally, I've been battling severe arthritis, which has been quite challenging.
Interviewer: That sounds like a significant load to bear. Can you share some of the successes you've experienced since adopting the Carnivore diet?
Allison: Sure thing. The transformation has been remarkable. I've shed 24 pounds, which is fantastic, but the most profound change has been in my mental health. My depression, which has haunted me for years, vanished within days of starting the Carnivore diet. The newfound energy and mental clarity have been incredible. In fact, I've even mustered the confidence to start a new business as an Amazon seller, something I never would have imagined before.
Interviewer: That's truly inspiring, Allison. What would you say has been your biggest challenge along this journey?
Allison: Portion control has been my main issue. Being a binge eater, it's been tough to rein in my eating habits, especially when the Carnivore app recommends a specific calorie intake. I often find myself consuming more than recommended, which slows down my weight loss progress.
Interviewer: It's commendable that you're persevering through that challenge. How has the GoCarnivore community, group coaching, and interactions with doctors helped you along the way?
Allison: The GoCarnivore community has been an invaluable source of support and knowledge. Having a platform where I can ask questions, share concerns, and see others' successes has been incredible in keeping me motivated. While I wish there were more live sessions during times that accommodate my work schedule, I understand the logistical challenges. This community has been a lifeline for me.
Interviewer: Lastly, Allison, how do you envision your future with the Carnivore lifestyle?
Allison: I'm in it for the long haul. Despite occasional lapses, I know now that the benefits far outweigh any momentary indulgences. The mental and physical transformation I've experienced confirms my commitment to this lifestyle. I can confidently say that Carnivore is here to stay in my life.
Interviewer: Thank you, Allison, for sharing your remarkable journey with us. Your resilience and determination are truly inspiring, and we wish you continued success on your Carnivore journey.
Allison: Thank you for the opportunity to share my story. If it helps even one person, it's worth it.
