October Update All Beef Diet and Life

By Mikhaila

Hi Everyone!

Sorry about the incredibly long silence. I’m going through some personal life drama (nothing health related) and I’ve been incredibly busy. I’ll update everyone on that later.

All beef diet is still going strong! I am still alive and thriving. I will not have radio silence again for this long, and I am going to start a YouTube Channel in November! Stay tuned.

Here are some quick updates (pepper reaction and baby update):

Pepper reaction early August: I went out to eat and had pepper accidentally in August. Five days before the podcast with Rogan. I hardly had any pepper, just a bit. I freaked out as soon as I noticed, and left the restaurant and went home and stressed out. Had a bunch of activated charcoal, prayed to the autoimmune gods, almost cried, etc. I didn’t get away with it, I did react to pepper. It was MINOR in comparison to reintroducing a food and what used to happen, but I did react. I had body odour for about 2 weeks, and a tiny bit of brain fog. It was hardly noticeable really. Well, the BO was. But not the rest of the autoimmune stuff. My knee hurt one day and my big toe and that was basically it. Almost. It was a breeze for a reaction, but what did happen was I got a rash/breakout! I’m 99% sure it was pepper related because my skin never breaks out. I had something that looked like a keto rash all over my shoulders and back a week after pepper. I took some pictures but it was way worse in person. And itchy… It usually takes about a week for the reaction to hit my skin and boy did it. There are still marks but they’re finally fading now. It’s been 7 weeks since the pepper. So yeah, pepper is a no. But the good news is it wasn’t a disaster at all, other than my skin. Easy peasy for a reaction.

Breastfeeding and weaning and baby:  I stopped breastfeeding August 27th right before the Joe Rogan podcast. It was bittersweet. Scarlett had naturally weaned herself down to just nursing at night, and she was only drinking about an oz. I nursed one day and she immediately threw it up. She never spits up food, but she’d spit up my milk. I didn’t think this was a particularly good time, and it was kind of upsetting. I’m wondering if my immune system is so sensitive that it was bugging her. Who knows. Mom worries. Anyway, weaning was a breeze. I had read about women getting sore boobs and the horrors of stopping breastfeeding but it was easy. I didn’t even notice. Except now I have no boobs again… Throughout my teenage years, I always consoled myself about my lack of boobs by thinking, “at least once I have kids I’ll have them!” WRONG. They’re back to normal.  Literally, it looks like nothing happened (so it could be worse).

Scarlett now sleeps through the night! So that’s HUGE. I crib trained. Crib training was stressful. I did the cry it out method. It sucked. She screamed for 1.5 hours the first night. One hour the second night, 30 minutes the 3rd night, and 5 minutes the fourth night. Now it’s a couple of whimpers and she’s out. Should’ve crib trained wayyyy long ago.

J Peterson update: Dad is still going strong on beef. He reintroduced chicken and thinks it went well, but then he ate some chicken at a friends house that was marinated and had a reaction. It wasn’t even marinated with anything crazy. Garlic, spices, no sugar or anything. The reaction was pretty unpleasant but again, nothing like the reactions that used to happen when we were eating vegetables. He was incredibly anxious in the mornings for about a week and a half. And he told me half of his body was numb for about 3 days. So not ideal? But he’s recovered now. It’s been two weeks. That’s way better than a month of hell like it used to be. I told him to lay off the chicken and reintroduce it again when he’s back from touring. That way it’s more of a clean test. My guess is he can tolerate chicken and he just reacted to the marinade. I cannot tolerate chicken, but we are not the same.

Will update everyone more throughout the week!

  1. what if it were a pesticide or environmental chemical intolerance, instead of simple intolerance to non-meat foods?

  2. Thanks Mikhaila,
    I’ve only just started and I appreciate your transparency. I to find it hard to eat only beef. I think I’m concerned about constipation ?. Are there any resources you could recommend for more info on how to eat carnivore?
    Thanks again. God bless you, Jeanne

    1. Check out zerocarbzen.com. Don’t worry about constipation at all! People don’t have that problem. It’s the opposite problem you’ll probably have to deal with. Assuming you get rid of dairy! Good luck!

  3. Mikhaila, what is known about the biochemical pathways involved in the version of idiopathic JRA you have?

    What happens if you take MSM, glucosamine or chondroitin supplements?


    It is interesting you react to sulfites, do you have any issues with sulfonamides or fresh garlic?

    1. A basic search engine query for “ketogenic OR atkins PLUS autoimmunity/etc” yields results going back at least a decade or more.

      How is it different than a standard ketosis diet?

    2. On a ketogenic diet you can eat green leafy veggies and you do not eat as much protein. Eating more protein than you need lowers keytosis. So ketogenic is low carb, high fat, and moderate protein. That is different than the Atkins.

    3. Beef breakfast smoothie is what I look forward to in the morning.. When I suction why does the juice go up the spout? I toss the meat chunks into the meat chute where they are grinded up and then stored in the freezer.

    4. I haven’t seen any good studies confirming whether extremely low / zero carbohydrate diets may or may not shut down thyroid hormone metabolism. But maybe if it is the case then it wouldn’t be so bad for an autoimmune condition anyway?

    5. That’s mostly because very little research has been done no doubt.
      There’s no money in it for the big food companies, so no budget.
      And it doesn’t conform with the farm subsidies driven “food pyramid” so no government funding either (the food pyramid was created and exists today solely to get people to eat more of those products that get high farm subsidies, which in turn are provided to sectors that can get good voter turnout).

    6. I’ve been able to reduce my thyroid medication by 60% so far by being carnivore…After about 2 months, I started getting hyper feelings…labs revealed I was overmedicated…Had been on the same dose for years! I am 10 months carnivore now and hope to get off of them entirely soon! N=1 But that is all I need. 🙂

  4. Hi Mikhaila,

    Any resources you can recommend for the Crib Training?

    Also, I’ve been doing zerocarb for a couple weeks now. I’ve noticed my stools are loose, don’t use the washroom (sometimes days) and have diarrhea. Is this just part of the process of shifting to an all meat/fat diet?

    1. Yes totally normal. It took 6 weeks for me to be able to tolerate the amount of fat I was eating. If you still have problems at that point you can try reducing salt. Also most of what you’re eating is absorbed in the small intestine so you’re not going to be producing as much waste naturally.

  5. I have been on All Beef for 18 days now and feel AMAZING! My question is (can’t find the answer anywhere) since starting this I only poop once a week if I’m lucky and it’s on the verge of diarrhea. Is this normal? I stated this as I have Crohn’s and IBS and suffer from severe bloating, and thought why not if it will make me feel better I got nothing to loose! I do feel great just concerned on the not pooping issue! TIA for you feedback!

    1. You create less waste on this diet so there isn’t as much to poop! Unless you’re feeling constipated dont worry about it. Most of the meat is absorbed in the small intestine. No insoluble fiber means less waste! If your stool stays super loose, try cutting back on salt. I’ll obviously have to post a poop post haha
