154: Wendy Armstrong - Carnivore Nurse

Wendy Armstrong

 Wendy Armstrong says:

I have been qualified as a nurse for 26 years. The last 16 of those years has been as a practice nurse in the same practice specialising in the management of Type 2 diabetes. I had always questioned why we treat a disease of insulin resistance with drugs that increase insulin secretion or with insulin itself. 

In 2015 I read the 8 week blood sugar diet book and it all clicked.

I started eating low carb myself having gone gluten-free after seeing a naturopath in 2017 to help reverse post viral fatigue then gradually I have transitioned to keto then 16 months ago to a more carnivore way of eating.


Wendy’s Top Tips

  1. If you are carnivore, you have to eat the fats – particularly animal fats.
  2. Electrolytes are your friend and your saviour.
  3. Circadian rhythms and the sun are important – perhaps more important than diet – Get early morning, midday and late afternoon sun every day.

Quotes by Wendy Armstrong

“When I think about it now if I had gone keto or carnivore then and done lots of protein and lots of fat, I would have got better quicker.”

“I just said I am going to try it for a month.”

“When I don’t have enough fats, I don’t feel as good.”

“My sleep is loads better.”

“It’s hiding it from the blood test.”

“You are just rotting from the inside.”

“Everyone says I don’t have sugar in my tea.”

“The doctor who did my blood test will be saying are you not a bit worried Wendy? Your cholesterol is a bit high and your LDL is a bit high.”
