In this episode Dr. Chaffee and Simon chat with Asher (AKA @primalwellness on IG) about his journey from ‘skinny fat’ in his 20s and 30s to a ripped carnivore in his late 40s. *Dr. Chaffee joins about 17 minutes into the conversation. Asher has suffered from anxiety, panic disorders and depression. In his 30s he started having panic attacks daily, he couldn’t work and had to quit his job. Asher became a high functioning alcoholic in an attempt to escape his anxiety. Asher’s struggles lead him to look for a solution and stumbled across some information linking mental health with nutrition. Today, Asher has been a strict carnivore for 4 years and before that he was keto and before that paleo.  He is what you might call an ‘expert level carnivore’, eating high fat, and almost exclusively beef and lamb. At 49 years old he is extremely lean, fit and strong. Asher has run a mental health clinic for the past 7 years and helps his patients who suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD and more make huge progress through metabolic therapy AKA proper human nutrition. Topics discussed: Going from keto to carnivore Mental health on carnivore Eating high fat carnivore Why rib eyes might not be fatty enough for you Asher’s go to meats Eating high fat to get lean and strong Socialising Soaps made from tallow Mental health on carnivore Using carnivore to overcome alcohol addiction Follow Asher on Instagram here: Buy Asher’s tallow soaps Spearhead Soaps here: Want to go strict carnivore (meat, salt and water only) for 30 days?
