Many people try to heal themselves with changing their diet. But have you ever considered going full carnivore?

Here’s the deal… It may sound crazy, but at the same time it makes complete sense. Focus on nutrients. Focus on fat burning. And simplify the diet so that you can figure out what is contributing to your symptoms.

Michelle Hurn is a registered and licensed dietitian with eleven years of clinical experience. While practicing in the hospital setting, she saw this huge disconnect from the nutrition guidelines she was required to teach, and the declining health of her patients. She had her own health issues, which sent her on a path of experimentation and self-discovery, going against everything she had learned in the medical field.

Today Michelle looks, feels and performs better than she ever has. She’s happy. She is an accomplished endurance athlete. And she wrote a book! “The Dietitian’s Dilemma.” It is an AMAZING read.

So whether you’re completely confused about how to eat, relatively confident, or just want to add to your overall wisdom, I’m sure you’ll get some great information from this interview. You can watch the YouTube video here or listen anywhere you listen to podcasts including Spotify.
