This has been a busy week…

Decided to bunch them all here so I can keep track. They don’t bother me. They kind of crack me up actually. Partly because I can understand how a diet of beef, salt, and water sounds insane. But mostly because it actually works and that’s also insane. What am I supposed to do? Stop having an autoimmune disorder due to dramatic changes in diet and then hide that information from the world? Haha. AS IF. Informing as many people as I possibly can to see how many other people can stop suffering. Just try to stop me world.

– This one is fun because she says I “reportedly” have arthritis. Even though I clearly have had two joints replaced.

– This one is fun because the author thinks diarrhea is a hard transition after I’ve gone through suffering from an autoimmune disorder and depression and ideopathic hypersomnia and chronically itchy skin and blistering rashes and cystic acne.

I just had a newspaper photographer come over and take a picture of me with a steak. Who knew I would grow up and become a steak advertiser… Life is so strange. Can’t really stop laughing about it.

As always, thanks for the support.

    Yourself and your family have been incredibly helpful shedding light onto this diet style. No eating habits sound anywhere near insane after hearing your tribulations. Your results are well deserved, and should be seen as admirable for constantly striving to find a solution.

    Great email notes! Congratulations on your steak photo shoot (maybe years from now, you can be like the old lady from that commercial, where she states, “where’s the beef!”)…Your dad might remember that one! Hahahaha…All the best!

    You’re amazing. Keep it up and don’t stop. You are changing so many people’s lives for the better! I’m glad these bullshit articles make you laugh!

  4. mary mcclure on August 3, 2018 at 2:50 am

    I’m so happy that you can laugh at these snarky articles Mikhaila. My favorite part is where they try to shame you for earning a living, just like they’ve done to Jordan. Both of you have imparted the bulk of your hard-won knowledge to the world for free! Here’s one life that has been changed forever by eating carnivore. Thank you so much.

    It’s shocking but not that surprising. Spooky, too. Like when that doctor in the BuzzFeed article said your arthritis recovery was placebo … So doctors in Canada do joint replacements on people who are imagining their joint pain? Caught in a corner with that one.

    Your father mentioned you showed him an article about only needing vitamin c for carbohydrate-digestion. Coukd you post a link to that one too? The need to eat vitamin c has been pushed my entire life and I can’t find the article.

    Is it safe to buy meat from a butcher? i’m worried about cross-contamination

  8. ac4evr on August 3, 2018 at 7:35 am

    So sorry they’re giving you shit, clearly they just can’t comprehend that you are purely educating the public. You are an inspiration and thank you for sharing your journey.

  9. Christopher Guichard on August 3, 2018 at 8:50 am

    Thank you so much. Change my life. One month on beef diet. I’m healing physically mentally spiritually. I actually look forward to living my life now. Excited about the future. I feel like this is salvation in some way. God bless.

    • Mikhaila on August 3, 2018 at 1:15 pm

      That’s awesome!!

  10. Brett on August 3, 2018 at 9:03 am

    When we can afford it, the wife & I are happily going to pay for a consultation as a sincere thank you for sharing your story. I’m day 19 zero carb & the healing I’ve experienced in such a short time has been incredible. I would not have learned of this way of eating were it not for you & your father.

    The establishment doesn’t approve of what you are doing & as more & more people seeking wellness learn of & start getting healthy again word is spreading. Please keep doing what you’re doing & if you can also pay your bills as a result you will always have our 100% support!

  11. Steph on August 3, 2018 at 11:28 am

    All these articles are doing is getting the word out there more. Any publicity is good publicity because it gets people out there looking into it and thinking about it. You should be proud. You’re so strong and an inspiration to others! 🙂

    I saw on Twitter Timothy Noakes references a paper showing that Syndrome X is exacerbated by the US Dietary recommendations (low fat, high carb) . Syndrome X affects women. It feels like a heart attack. So the woman goes to the ER and there is no sign of having a heart attack. So the Drs poo poo the woman. While it is true she did not have a heart attack she had a capillary issue with the capillaries in the heart. The heavy weight feeling on the chest is caused by the capillaries in the heart narrowing. So it isn’t a heart attack but it needs to be treated properly.

  13. Catherine Keller on August 3, 2018 at 12:24 pm

    I think popsci’s article title ‘Please do not try to survive on an all-meat diet’ needs to be rewritten to say, ‘How they tried to survive before an all-meat diet and now thrive’.

    Thanks for all you do Mikhaila!

  14. fabian on August 3, 2018 at 1:30 pm

    How severe were you and jordans reactions to chicken and salmon??

    • Mikhaila on August 3, 2018 at 1:57 pm

      Not like other foods. Severe enough to stop eating it though. Dads going to try and reintroduce chicken, I just suggested not eating it because of my reaction (drunken feeling and brain fog and slowness – I tested it out 5 times because I couldn’t believe it). Dad noticed the reaction to salmon. Lower back pain and mood dip. I didn’t notice anything to salmon, I just cut it with chicken just incase.

      • fabian on August 3, 2018 at 3:38 pm

        ok i will stick to beef too then, day 3 now (well on day 1 i had chicken and salmon).

        Is tallow safe for you too? i am so paranoid about cross contamination from the manufacturing process in butcheries

        • Mikhaila on August 3, 2018 at 3:42 pm

          I haven’t tried tallow. I save the fat that leaks out of ribs when I put them in the oven. Have tons of it in the fridge.

          • fabian on August 3, 2018 at 7:05 pm

            oh ok, i thought you mentioned in an interview that you bought beef fat/tallow at the butcher



          • fabian on August 3, 2018 at 7:18 pm

            but normally tallow shouldn’t be a problem i assume?



          • Mikhaila on August 3, 2018 at 7:58 pm

            Yeah it shouldn’t be as long as it’s pure!



          • foobarbaz849 on August 4, 2018 at 7:44 pm

            You can also buy grass fed suet, and have it shipped to you.. which I am going to try out!

    I love how all of these articles are making a huge deal about her charging for skype sessions with fans who have been requesting this and all of the information about the diet is right here for free.

    • JimK on August 3, 2018 at 3:19 pm

      Agreed. Why shouldn’t she expect to get paid for her time?

    • dsaulw on August 7, 2018 at 1:01 pm

      Predictable attack from the Commie press.

  16. Nick on August 3, 2018 at 3:24 pm

    Hi Mikhaila! I’m currently on day 9 of the diet given in the “THE DIET” tab above, the least restrictive so far. Basically just eating chicken, beef, salmon, veggies and sweet potatoes and nothing else. I’ve had to start supplementing with soluble fiber to manage this for some reason (even though I thought the veggies I’m eating would do the trick).

    I just wanted to ask you, since you’re now on 100% beef and nothing else – how are you avoiding constant constipation? Haha I know it’s quite a question, but I’d love to hear what your experience has been like, if your body just adapted or anything specific you’re doing for it, etc.

    Thanks!

    • Mikhaila on August 3, 2018 at 3:34 pm

      I’m not constipated AT ALL on just beef. Neither is dad. His digestion he claims is great. Mine is great but I’ll get diarrhea if I eat out. I think it’s the added hormones and antibiotics in the meat. There was no adaptation that involved constipation. I used to suffer from that when I had a regular diet quite badly. I feel like fiber actually makes things worse.

      • Nick on August 4, 2018 at 3:29 pm

        Thanks for your reply. That’s interesting – I’ll have to look further into it all.

        I really appreciate all you’re doing to help people here. I can’t believe the blatant misrepresentation in some of these articles, it’s like they haven’t taken 15 minutes to read what you’re actually writing on here, and how you’re doing 90% of it for free just to help others. So cheers for that!!

  17. JabbaPapa on August 4, 2018 at 1:27 am

    So, “the cut” suggests that you’re taching : “ all you have to do is eat beef three times a day — literally just beef, nothing else — and you’ll be cured of whatever ails you

    risible how they have to invent nonsense like this to support their attacks …

  18. Amir on August 4, 2018 at 11:02 am

    Hey Mikhaila, what oil do you cook your beef in?

  19. Jessica on August 4, 2018 at 11:31 am

    Have you tried, or had a reaction to wild meat like caribou, moose, or bison?

    • Mikhaila on August 4, 2018 at 3:31 pm

      I’ve only tried bison but it’s completely fine! I’m kind of assuming other animals like moose and caribou would be fine too?

      • foobarbaz849 on August 4, 2018 at 7:46 pm

        Other ruminants might be fine too, like lamb and goat. 🙂

        • Mikhaila on August 4, 2018 at 8:25 pm

          People have had good success with lamb. As long as they can get enough fat

  20. Johnny on August 4, 2018 at 3:21 pm

    14 yrs with severe RA + extreme fatigue + depression/anxiety. Starting diet today. I’ve got some pretty awesome symptom tracking in place so I should come out of this with some pretty solid data one way or the other. Thanks for sharing your experience!

    • Mikhaila on August 4, 2018 at 3:30 pm

      Good luck! Stick it out for at least a month. Make sure you eat enough, don’t undereat, overeat if anything. Make sure you get enough salt. Comment if you have concerns!

  21. DJ Bookout on August 4, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    Hey Mikhaila, thanks for all you are doing with this. I was wondering if you had any time to perfect your pemmican experiments? Looking forward to trying your ideas out. Thanks!

  22. foobarbaz849 on August 5, 2018 at 12:29 am

    Not sure where else to put this… 🙂 there is a recipe for Pemmican on youtube by an 18th century advocate. Maybe it will work for you!

  23. Bea on August 5, 2018 at 3:26 am

    Great writing, but when you say “What am I supposed to do? Stop having an autoimmune disorder due to dramatic changes in diet and then hide that information from the world?” It sounds like you are saying “am I supposed to stop having an autoimmune disorder that was caused by dramatic changes in diet?” Sorry, I proofread and copyedit for a living.

    • Mikhaila on August 5, 2018 at 8:28 am

      Haha you’re right

  24. Sarah on August 5, 2018 at 5:41 am

    Ridiculous how biased they can be. Better to have an open mind. Will you be posting your blood work soon? And an analysis of it. I am low carb, high fat and protein and a naturopath said my blood work shows I’m too acidic and inflamed. Not sure she’s correct. Have to read up on it more. Would be good to see yours as you are doing so great!

  25. Maggie on August 5, 2018 at 2:59 pm

    Hello! Love what you’re doing here. Quick question… You wrote somewhere that you buy fat trimmings remains from the butcher and you fry them up crispy as a snack… I’d like to do that myself but I don’t know type of beef fat trimmings to ask for. There’s a lot of beef fat that will simply melt completely when you cook it but I’d love to have little pieces of crispy fat I could gnaw on 🙂 So what exactly do you ask for? thank you!

  26. mike boyce on August 5, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Are you familiar with Dr. Georgia Ede? I noticed that she has done research on vegetables that aligns in a very similar way to your observations, particularly in the context of mental health.

    • Mikhaila on August 5, 2018 at 6:41 pm

      Yes. Big fan of her!

  27. Wade Evans II on August 7, 2018 at 9:52 am

    It’s sad how people are so quick to judge and make accusations that aren’t true. A lot of these articles talk like you are advertising that you are scientist etc. All I have seen is, you report on how this has affected you and your dad. The same for Jordan in that interview with Joe. He even went out of his way to say that he is not a professional and that he was just reporting on what he did for him. It’s disappointing that you can’t even have an opinion about something anymore. I wish you well and hope you know that there are people out here in the real world who understand and are happy for your progress. I hope your health continues to improve. Take care, Wade

  28. Cory Appleton on August 7, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    I am a believer. I realized that the fewer carbs I had, the better I felt. Down from 300+ lbs. and feeling great!

    these 2nd rate media types only know “gotcha” journalism and soft news so their only angle is “something different but good happened – who this person? why is he or she lying, and why is this person such a dangerous outsider? here’s why you should be afraid, now. don’t forget to subscribe to my thing.” none of them contend with your claim on a scientific level. they all sound so sarcastic and bored, which makes sense because all they have to offer is skepticism and links back to you. like they know they are useless and i feel sad for them.

    it happens with your dad over and over and over, these little clowns limp in with hacky ideological agendas and he just waits for them to run out of air before correcting them. occasi

    i dunno, this diet is working for me so when people try to raise their profile by poking holes in it, i get annoyed! do something good with your time!

    • alexandergaynor on August 7, 2018 at 10:18 pm

      whoops, i went back to say …occasionally an interviewer will throw out something truly crazy and damaging and your dad has to shut them down, but then i hit send.
