Why the Carnivore Diet Works for Women
There are several reasons the carnivore diet is ideal for women.
First, the carnivore diet keeps you full for a longer time which helps you stay in a calorie deficit and lose body fat. Your body takes a long time to break down the calories you get from the fat and protein on this diet, and this keeps you full for a longer time and reduces your food cravings. This fat loss is highly beneficial for those who are suffering from issues such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
When you eat carbs, there is an increase in your hunger hormones, and your body undergoes perpetual crashes and spikes in insulin and sugar levels. These fluctuations imbalance hormones such as HGH, ghrelin, and leptin that are associated with weight loss, fat storage, and hunger
Katie Kelly Cures Crohn’s Disease with Carnivore

With the carnivore diet, Katie recovered from over 30 years of a disordered relationship with exercise, food, and her body. She not only lost 55 lbs but put her Bulimia and Crohn’s disease in remission. Katie no longer doubts herself, her intuition, her abilities, or her power and worth!
