My Carnivore Account

Starting in my late 20’s, I started eating less processed and more whole foods but I didn’t yet know the full story.   I read a terrible book titled “Diet for a Small Planet” riddled with error but this colored my thinking with the notion that plants are beneficial and ate as an omnivore till my my early 60’s  when I was misled by the “Hallelujah Acres” diet.  I ate as a vegan for a good part of a year, and I now suspect that eating that way largely contributed to progressive problem I had for the next 4 years, shaking my arms to get blood into my hands.  Towards the end of that time I was waking up in the night and shaking my arms to restore blood flow.  Finally at age 65 my  middle finger on my left hand hooked sharply in the morning and it was painful to straighten.

July 11th 2023 I saw Phil Escot on the Charlie Ward show.  Phil is a drummer and a former vegan who had written books about the subject of veganism, but had did a 180 turning to Carnivore when arthritis crippled his ability to perform and began eating the “Lion Diet” which means only fatty ruminant meat including beef, lamb, bison, salt and water.

After seeing that video I was convinced that it could help and started immediately to transition to an all animal based diet at first including: eggs, fish chicken, Beef, Butter, Bacon and Eggs – BBB&E (as long time carnivores call it).

It was great!  I started feeling improvements immediately.  Within a few days of eating the Carnivore diet, I slept through the night with no more need to shake my arms to un-cramp them.  Then gradually improving over the course of several months my hooked finger stopped hooking.  I was inflammation pain free!

Aware now that I had found the “Proper Human Diet” in November of 2023 I began eating the “Lion Diet” that Phil Escot, Dr. Anthony Chaffee, and Mikala Peterson are eating.  It consist of only water, salt and ruminant fatty meat including beef, bison and lamb which are among the fattiest.

To reiterate in retrospect, I believe vegan eating was a factor in causing my circulation problems with hands and arms because plant oxalates and toxins in the plant food permeated my stomach “gut” wall and then entered the blood stream, then getting sequestered in all tissues including bones, ligaments, arteries & veins.  Also since these plant toxins cause tissue inflammation (because the body is always working to rid itself of poisons), I reached the point where the inflammation, called arthritis developed with the first sign was my morning hooked finger.

I’m so glad I watched that video, and many of those below.  I now know first hand why so many people who have found their way to a carnivore lifestyle.  I agree with Phil Escot that the best thing that happened to me was arthritis since that led me to Carnivore.

Some the healthiest and young looking people I’ve seen are those who lived most or all of their lives eating only meat. Their experience, and human history establishes that the Carnivore lifestyle is the Ancestrally correct diet for us.  Anthony Chafee is one of those people.  You can follow his journey by watching the videos below:
