A grandmother-of-three previously won against colon cancer and has credited her meat-only diet for helping her recover completely
62-year-old Eva Birath from Sweden says she is in the shape of her life after changing to the carnivore diet.
She was 40 when she first started bodybuilding and competing professionally. Before, she followed a high protein low carbohydrate ketogenic diet, which included mainly rice, chicken, and protein drinks.
But two years ago, she was diagnosed with colon cancer and had almost 12 inches of her colon removed. To speed up her recovery, she investigated other diets to improve her health and she stumbled upon the carnivore diet that only involves eating meat, eggs, fish and water.
After trying it for a year, she says she feels better than ever! It has also positively affected her libido. Her diet is free from starch and sugar, which some claim feed cancerous cells.
She instantly noticed improvements to her health as even her pollen allergy disappeared, she had more energy, she experienced better sleep, and her blood pressure was normalized.
“The carnivore diet is only meat, fish, eggs and water, coffee without milk is okay,” she shared.
“You eat when you are hungry and eat until you are full and drink when you are thirsty. No supplements are required.”
“Before I was on a ketogenic diet with not too much protein, 70g maximum from meat, fish and eggs, I ate lots of butter and cheese and loads of vegetables, berries and nuts.
“Now, I eat around one kilo of meat and water with intermittent fasting. I only have coffee in the morning and food at midday.
“I’m so much better off without any fibre. For the first time in my life, my stomach gives me no worries at all. Carnivore is the natural and effortless way to lose fat and get in good shape.”
She added: “My improvements started after just a couple of weeks, even though I did have some issues with the transition in the beginning.
“The first thing I noticed was that my allergy for pollen completely disappeared, and after that everything has successively improved.”
Eva also said that her new diet has improved her sex life. “My blood pressure has gone from high, 150/95, to normal, 112/77, my cravings are gone, I’m losing fat, my sleep is much better.
“I have no more leg cramps, I’m feeling more energetic and at the same time more calm, my stomach is now perfect, my skin, hair and nails has improved, I’m getting more muscular, feeling younger and have more libido.
“My hypothyroidism is slowly getting better, no cravings whatsoever – only natural hunger.
“One and a half years ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer and was operated on for that. I had been eating low carb, high fat for about 10 years but not until a year ago I started to feel great with my carnivore diet.
“Cancer cells live off sugar, so to avoid everything with sugar and starch helps to avoid new cancer cells, also avoiding all vegetables has helped to heal my guts.”
Eva now skips the veggies, berries, vegetable oils, nuts, and dairy.
But despite her claims, some experts have warned against the meat-only diet. The NHS stated: “Red meat – such as beef, lamb and pork – is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and can form part of a balanced diet. But eating a lot of red and processed meat probably increases your risk of bowel (colorectal) cancer.
“That’s why it’s recommended that people who eat more than 90g (cooked weight) of red and processed meat per day cut down to 70g, as this could help reduce your risk of bowel cancer.”
