6 Month Carnivore Update

By Mikhaila

I love this diet. I am never going back. 


Baby:  I’ve caved and gotten a nanny, and she’s starting in 2 weeks. I wanted to do the stay at home mom thing (which is what I’ve been doing for the last 10.5 months) but I can’t do it. There are too many things that I want to be able to do that I can’t do with a baby. Serious kudos to people  (like my own mom) who could do it. Taking care of a baby is a full-time job. And it’s incredibly rewarding but it’s hard when there are other things you’re missing out on. For me, that’s work, that’s the blog and writing. So a nanny it is, even though it makes me incredibly nervous. I realize how lucky I am to even have that option. We met someone who seems really bright and really kind and I think Scarlett will love her. She also speaks Russian so Scarlett can learn her dad’s language. We’ve only introduced meat and she’s still nursing a lot. I haven’t figured out what I want to do, but I’m thinking I may consider some vegetables and just see what she’s interested in. I haven’t decided yet.

Ankle: I need surgery. I don’t need to get it re-replaced (THANK GOD), but I do need surgery. After my ankle replacement my fibula was subluxed (slightly dislocated) and so I couldn’t bend my ankle well. Scar tissue grew in really quickly, and bone, and now there’s so much scar tissue that even though my wonderful physio fixed the dislocation, I can’t move my foot. The muscle on one side of my body is wasting away which is horrifying so I need to deal with this ASAP. That’ll be much easier with a nanny as well. Flying out to see a surgeon at the beginning of July, hopefully can do the surgery ASAP after that.

Jordan Peterson: Dad is thriving on the diet. He’s cut out salmon and is mostly eating beef but also some chicken. He told me salmon gives him back pain and makes his voice a bit shaky. Even after all the food weirdness, I’ve been through I had a hard time believing him. But I don’t eat it, and chicken makes me dizzy, so who the hell am I to judge? He has no depression, no anxiety, and no doom in the mornings. If you follow him on Twitter you might notice he’s not as volatile. Last week my mom texted me and said “Jordan woke up with James Brown’s “I Feel Good” in his head. If that isn’t a fantastic sign I don’t know what is. I’m going to get him to drop the chicken and I think his mood will improve even more. This all-meat diet is the bomb.

Mikhaila Peterson: I’ve been doing it for six months now and I swear it just gets better. I have no cravings for other foods, my brain is the fastest it’s ever been, I don’t even mind the sleep deprivation that comes with a baby (she wakes up at night still), I’m energized, happy in the morning, happy all day, and raring to go. The only thing stopping me is my ankle and that should get fixed hopefully soon. I’m getting my micronutrients tested and cholesterol this month. Comment below if you’re interested in certain markers and I’ll add them to the list. This is purely for people’s curiosity, I’m not concerned in the least, I feel great. I’m going to start doing consults (so keep an eye on the blog). Switch it to a pay per consult instead of Patreon. People who have been speaking with me feel better fast enough that we don’t have to keep talking which is amazing. My face is also thinner on this diet (even just eliminating salad). I don’t have as much puffiness in my cheeks. It’s lovely. I look so much more attractive. I was looking through pictures of myself in Montreal in 2012 and I look like a different human.

Hangovers: Hey! Good news, I don’t react negatively to alcohol (only bourbon and vodka – nothing else). It turns out that the minor reactions I was getting were to those hangover pills!!! Which work really well but were giving me symptoms. But my response to alcohol has changed. It used to fill me with energy and now it just kind of makes me slower. So that’s a downer but maybe I’m so fast normally that it’s starting to work like it should, it is a depressant after all. WARNING: This diet is NOT good for hangovers. My tolerance is down, not just because of breastfeeding, and the hangovers are killllllerrrr. Be careful. Go slowly with alcohol. Stick to bourbon and vodka (they have nothing else added – the colour from bourbon is from the cask).

I’ll be updating the blog much more frequently when the nanny starts, and I may even start a YouTube channel! I’m also writing a book (18 000 words in so far!) Exciting times. Doing great. Thanks for the support.

UPDATE: 2023 – Regarding hangovers I eventually made my own supplement I don’t react to that works reaalllyy well if you want to give it a shot. fullerhealth.com (more pure supplements will be launched soon that don’t have fillers, and are third party tested for mold, etc.)

  1. Hey guys. I have a question to people that follow this blog and diet little closely: can you eat cheese and eggs?

    1. Hi son_of_hans, This kind of meat contains even omega 3 fat. How much meat do you eat on a daily basis and how much is it per day?

  2. I’ve done a hell of a lot of research on this(close to 10 hours now), any medical studies for and against the diet. I have read a lot of the testimonials, all different kinds. Looked for other resources, whilst i trust in Jordan (I’ve always been driven, but was held back mentally, listening to him really helped) and therefore trust his daughter by proxy, it’s always best to cover your bases.

    My dad “has” fibromyalgia(or so the doctors say) – It took 10 years for them to diagnose him – fibromyalgia is just a term for you have chronic pain, but we have no idea why. He is close to 20 years now with it, nearly all my life, he has been getting worse and worse and it’s killing me to see it, I avoid being in too much contact on occasion because i see how painful it is for him, he was in a crash that set it off(which i know can happen with auto immune diseases/responses) – the worst is people don’t even believe him, as it comes across as him just wanting to be lazy.

    To the point, this is, by far i believe my dads best chance right now, i have looked into all sort of treatments cannbis, ketamine medical comas etc. I am getting him on the diet. He strongly fits what some other sufferers had before they were on it.

    Thanks for being a resource – if successful (which i really hope it is) i’ll give a testimonial

    1. HI all, I have been looking into Fecal Microbiota Transplants as well, it is worth some research.
      Combining this with a high / meat diet may have benefits.
      I am finding that people who do it with the source of the matter being the key, are having success with treating both diet and mental health problems.
      Here is Link to a video of a Woman who treated her depression by fixing her gut bugs over here in Australia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMjy5yEhZ5Q&t=0s&index=4&list=PLnDR6CiKO0bKVIO2uLqc_oY4wstjB44dv

    2. I started to develop autoimmune issues (itchy acne, insomnia, depression, bloating, diarrhea) after large doses of antibiotics 4 years ago. I did a strict candida cleanse diet (with no grains) for months without much improvement. Commercial probiotics also didn’t help. The only thing that helped with the itchy acne was antifungal drugs, but it came back as soon as I stopped taking them.

      Finally,1.5 years later I started doing home fecal microbiota transplants (FMT) with the capsule method. After about 6 doses over a 3 month span my symptoms all resolved! I still avoid most grains, but am able to eat them on occasion with hardly any side effects or GI upset. Replacing my gut bacteria (which was damaged from the antibiotics) with FMT has worked wonders for my autoimmune symptoms!

    3. Interesting. Where and how did you manage to get an FMT ? Do you have to pick a donor yourself ? I live in France and I haven’t found any clinic that does that.

    4. In the US they only treat C. Diff with FMT, so I had to use my wife as a donor and do it myself. A reference I found very helpful was thepowerofpoop.com. The capsule method worked much better for me than enema method.

  3. Hi, Do you eat eggs? I don’t seem to be tolerating them, but might just be me And have you tried Zevia soda?
