Andrew Graf, 26, is a man who doesnt like to sit on the fence when it comes to food.

He was overweight, unhappy, and had tried numerous diets to try and lose weight and reduce his anxiety levels.

The one he settled on was meat and only meat… Oh, and its raw.

Andrew, from Texas, says, I tried veganism, high carbs, calorie restriction, and excessive exercising but nothing was doing it. When I heard about the carnivore diet I thought it sounded nuts.

But I gave it a try I could not believe the difference.

Each day he eats between one and two pounds of raw meat, and thats it. This is usually eaten in one sitting at dinner time so Andrew doesnt have to eat his meals of raw liver, mince, bone marrow, and steak in public.

His weight dropped from 21st 4lbs to 13st 5lbs, and Andrew even claims that it has resulted in reduced inflammation, blood pressure and increased libido and mental clarity.

Most doctors recommend a balanced diet with protein, fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates. They also say that this sort of carnivore diet can cause higher cholesterol, artery disease and heart disease.

Although Andrew does admit he has had constipation, foul breath and rashes due to his food choices, he prefers that to the bloated, constipated, and lethargic way that he felt during his stint as a vegan.

He also asserts that people on this diet have a lower mortality.

The carnivore diet was popularised recently, as media personality and psychology lecturer Jordan Peterson and his daughter Mikhaila revealed theyre fans of a high-meat regime.

They claim it helped cure Mikhailas rheumatoid arthiritis and made her depression disappear.

For Andrew, he believes that the effects hes experienced are because hes training his body to run of fat rather than carbohydrates.

His choice of raw meat over cooked is apparently because, cooking reduces the bioavailability of nutrients, so eating raw means you eat less. He also prefers the taste of rare meat.

Eating uncooked meat can increase your risk of contracting salmonella, e. coli, and other foodborne infections, but Andrew says its like living in a new world.
