Optimal Protein Podcast (Fast Keto) with Vanessa Spina

Feb 20, 2020

Linda Salant is a long-term carnivore who has been a follower of the zero-carb carnivore diet since April 2015. Linda has been quietly and steadily continuing her path of maintaining and improving her health. She hopes that sharing her experience and knowledge will help to dispel current myths and trends that persist around the nutrition, sustainability, and ethics of eating a meat-based diet.

Linda graduated from Cornell University in 1997, earning a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Human Ecology. She has used the carnivore diet to reverse her amenorrhea and PCOS, alleviate anxiety, and eliminate daily migraines. She has seen continued suppression of edema from CVI (chronic venous insufficiency) and has found the elimination of near-constant pain from interstitial cystitis to be life-changing. More recently, she has seen how the combination of fasting and the carnivore diet has been effective in relieving the pain, bruising, and additional symptoms associated with the lipedema she has been dealing with since her 20s.

Linda is a wife, mother of two, a competitive ballroom dancer and a Certified Carnivore Coach through MeatRx. She is also a regenerating member of the Savory Institute and feels passionately about how ruminant animals and regenerative ranching are a net positive for both our health and for the health of our planet.
