As good as I thought I felt on keto, it was like 1000 times better on carnivore.

[2:45] Ede shares her health history.
[3:45] In 2015 at age 44, Ede was feeling exhausted, in pain, and overweight, so she adopted a ketogenic diet. She lost 80 pounds on keto.
[5:05] Ede felt better on a ketogenic diet, but she felt even better upon adopting a carnivore diet in December 2017.
[6:10] Ede became passionate enough about the carnivore diet that she started YouTube and Instagram channels as “The Black Carnivore”.
[7:35] Ede shares the timeline of her weight loss.
[8:25] Ede started carnivore with a “beef and butter” fast. Within 3 days, she felt phenomenal and felt major improvements in her breathing (she had asthma and allergies).
[12:05] Ede found that dairy was a trigger for her autoimmune and breathing issues.
[13:40] “So I had no more cheese after that, and I haven’t used my inhaler since then.”
[15:25] “My allergies had improved on keto, but now are just gone.” She goes on to describe all the allergy drugs she no longer takes and mentions that she has also saved a lot of money by not needing those.
[18:25] Ede describes the ketogenic diet that she ate (50 grams of carbohydrate per day or below) and the carnivore diet that she eats now.
[21:15] Is butter also a trigger for Ede’s health issues?
[25:45] How did Ede originally come across the idea of a low carb diet (which she had done at times even prior to her 2015 keto diet)?
[31:25] How have Ede’s energy and mood been impacted by her dietary change?
[36:45] How has Ede’s endometriosis responded to her dietary change? (Note: she has also utilized acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and surgery to address this condition.)
[41:55] On Ede’s journey to health, what have some of the challenges been? Ede uses a great analogy to an alcoholic working in a bar here.
[44:35] How have Ede’s family and friends reacted to Ede’s health transformation?
[47:15] Does Ede consider herself cured of her conditions?
[50:20] Now that she has improved her health, what is one thing Ede enjoys doing that she couldn’t do before?
[52:50] Ede lists her social media contact information (“The Black Carnivore”) for Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.
[54:25] Ede emphasizes the importance of community in making dietary/lifestyle changes.
