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 Mikhaila, I watched an interview with you and have been following your Dad for a while. I just wanted to say thanks for putting this information out there, I have been going through the same types of inflammatory issues for a while now and this info has been a light in the darkeness!

  2. Hi Mikhaila, it’s great the you’re shaking up the food industry by showing people what a carnivorous diet can do for your health. I think you’re inspiring so many people to look into their diet and most important of all, start listening to their own bodies.

    I’m wondering, how do you cook steak when you can’t use olive oil anymore due to your autoimmune response?

  3. What are you guys using to cook your meat ? butter ? olive oil ? coconut oil ?

  4. Thanks for your research and trial and error on this. Stumbling across this website is what lead me to start the diet changes as a last resort to help with some issues. Ankylosing spondylitis, (hla b27 neg) and Enbrel has really helped pain and joint damage reduction, but the weirdest issues with dread and anxiety have been a severe problem the last 2 years. Gluten free since 3/1 with good results, but not where I want to be yet, so today I’m doing beef and water for 30 days. Bring on the filets and ice water.

  5. Hi Mikhaila, I decided to try meat only after hearing the success of others over some shared food problems. I’ve just started and hence am curious about a few different measurements. In particular, I would greatly appreciate measurements of Triglycerides, A1C, TSH, Albumin, SHBG, and D3.


  6. Hello Mikhaila from Buenos Aires, Argentina! as many others, I discovered your troubled journey and your incredible life changing diet, from your dad while speaking to Joe.
    I felt so happy to see your changes!! gives as all hope 😉

    I don’t have your ailments, but I came to the conclusion I suffer from chronic fatigue because over the years I was making huge efforts to run (used to be a runner) and now I just couldn’t anymore, there’s a pain in my solar plexus although my body seems to have strength… I have suffered panic attacks/anxiety, but no one ever tells you it could be a chemical imbalance, in fact they all say my fatigue is “in my mind”…yeah, sure.
    I also have your dad problem I NEVER fall asleep anymore, I have to pass out after hours, I don’t have that normal sleepy state anymore than makes you fall asleep…

    Through you I kept researching, I’ve been a pescetarian for years (only sea food and fish) now I’m gonna start with some veggies and red meats (not chicken but some fish for sure) and see how it goes for me. Gluten isn’t in my diet usually so easy to drop it completely, but I did eat rice and grains…gonna cut that out too.

    Question: Do eggs have a bad effect for you?
    How many times a day do you eat?

    Sorry if you answered these already, I will dig into your blog now…

    Also: Check out this couple: red meat eaters for 20 YEARS! apparently no cheats! take that for a case study… his wife had lyme disease in 98′ so they started there…never went back. Look at her pics before and after, she is 45 now, and looks 25 incredible!!! here’s his twitter account with pics and all (maybe you could interview them?) twitter: JoeCharlene8898
