The Black Carnivore Podcast

Welcome! I'm Ede and my goal with this podcast is to provide all the information you need to make the keto or carnivore diet a way of life. Listen to these stories from new and veteren keto/carnivore folks and be inspired to transform your life and seek optimal health. By my family’s history, I should have high blood pressure, heart disease & be a 300lb diabetic by now, but five years ago I took control of my health and turned that around. Cutting carbs was hard but once I got through it & became fat adapted, I was amazed at how great I felt. Suddenly I had tons of energy, lost 80lbs & most importantly felt like I had a healthy way of eating that was sustainable for a lifetime! We’re told getting older means weight gain, aches, pains, and muscle loss, but now I know that is absolutely not our destiny. If you’re looking to take back your health or set yourself up for a long & healthy life, hang out here and listen to these amazing success stories.

Michal began developing vitiligo 6 years ago. After consultations with doctors, he accepted there was nothing he could do about it but avoid the sun and use sunscreen as the doctors instructed. His brother heard about a man in the Czech Republic who was treating his vitiligo with a carnivore diet, then he heard about Joe Rogan, another vitiligo sufferer possibly improving his skin on carnivore.

Skip to the 2:42 minute mark to see the before & after picture. If you have vitiligo, would you be willing to try this diet?
