Carnivore diet update

Hi guys, I thought its long overdue this update on carnivore diet. So here it goes.


This is now week 3, I have lost 5 KG, which is great for a 40-year-old peri-menopausal woman, on top of this, I have an under active thyroid. This usually slows things down a bit in terms of weight loss.

In terms of energy, sleep and appetite/cravings, I find improvements all around.

I sleep better, therefore wake up better, my energy levels have been a lot better in general, although depending on where I am on my cycle, I’ll have days where I don’t feel so bright.

I find that I am less tolerant to caffeine, and certain stronger coffees, the acidity literally burns in my stomach, so that’s also a good one for me, as I was already cutting down on caffeine anyway. So new routine is: 1 bulletproof coffee in the morning, lots and lots of water as usual, brunch at 11 am or 11:30 am, and then dinner at around 7 pm. I don’t usually feel the need to snack, but if my breakfast is a little smaller, I might eat a bite of cheese at around 2 pm.

Something else I have been noticing, due to perimenopause, is my skin, it’s becoming a lot dryer and more sensitive, especially when shaving, my legs don’t like razors anymore, so from now on I’ll be topping up on my collagen with bone broths, and I have upgraded my body skin care to honey&camomile body butter, as I find it needs more nourishing. My face is still absolutely fine with Replenish & restore or rose salve and rejuvenating serum at night.


We do drink herbal teas, and I continue supplementing with Rhodiola tincture and red clover tablets to support my hormones through this period of change.

I will be adding some links bellow for recipes if you want to give the carnivore diet a go, and for the skin care products I mentioned too, so you can give them a try if you like.

I hope this was helpful, and if you have any questions feel free to drop me an email.
