In today's episode, Zane interviews Rebekah Farmer. Rebekah is a Health & Life Coach that suffered from severe digestive issues and mood disorders since the 6th grade.

During this interview, you will hear about how in her 20's was diagnosed with 10 severe auto-immune diseases, including Lyme, Epstein Barr, Hashimoto's, Celiac, and Lupus. Developed C-diff -bacterial infection in the gut- and treated by antibiotics and 3 fecal transplants...

Fast forward to May 2019 she weighed 69 lbs, at 5'6, unable to gain weight, staying in the ER to be kept alive where the recommendation was to give her a feeding tube and remove a portion of her colon.

She convinced the hospital nutritionist to let her try a carnivore diet and immediately began to put on weight.

After being released from the hospital, she has continued with the diet, has put on 65 lbs, and is lifting weights.

She now eats 2 meals a day of a high protein, moderate fat diet animal-based diet, specifically ruminant animals, butter, and organ meats. Her lifelong health issues are disappearing into the distance.

Quick Health Tip from Rebekah:

Recommends eating at least 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight
