Alpha-Gal Syndrome (AGS) is a tick-borne illness that causes a delayed potentially severe allergic reaction to eating mammalian red meat like beef, pork (including bacon!), deer and lamb, and mammalian byproducts like certain medications, medical supplies, soaps, lotions, etc.

Today we are talking with Renee, who contracted the illness 2 months ago in September while on a trail walk in the Ozark mountains of Arkansas.

Renee shares what her life was like before AGS, how she contracted it, and how her life has been changed as a result. She doesn’t have a typical story. She was thriving on the Carnivore way of eating before she was bitten. Did she give up? Did she take the advice of many who said she should start eating vegan? No. Instead, she is determined to continue to thrive on Carnivore and document her journey.

If you have Alpha-Gal Syndrome and are curious about the Carnivore way of eating, or think you need to give it up because of your diagnosis, be sure to watch. If you just have an aversion to red meat and are looking for alternatives, this is for you, too! You can follow Renee’s journey as an #alphagalcarnivore on her Instagram @carnivore.mimi.
