[EP83] - What are your thoughts on the Carnivore Diet?

by @ninjavideo


Hi everyone! Hope you're all well!

I know it's controversial, but given where my genetics and DNA are from, I thought I'd give the carnivore diet a try. I was basically aiming for one meal a day, full of protein and fats. It didn't often work out like that, I just couldn't provide myself with enough food in the time I had to cook and eat... and so I often had 2 meals within my intermittent fasting window of 12pm to 8pm.

Pros: - Body reacted really well - Was able to easily get by on one or two meals - Cost was lower - Spent far less time cooking

Cons: - It just feels a bit gross - Definitely not sustainable or environmental

What do you think about the Carnivore diet? Have you ever tried it? If not, would you ever consider it?

Thanks for watching!

Yeah, not only have I heard of a fasting diet with 1 meal a day... but that's exactly what I've been doing. I need to figure it out though... when I was traveling for work, I was doing it easily by just loading up on protein at the Wholefoods hotbar... but now that I'm cooking myself I'm struggling to make enough. I haven't been having any carbs, which is different to yours... but I'm not opposed to your diet at all. How have you been finding it?

Also, just so you know... in words like "it's", it looks like you're using the key next to the 1 and above Tab on a keyboard instead of the single quotation that shares the key with the double quotation mark. The key next to the 1 is what they use when they want to add programming code to the text... like:

<html>Hello</html>

That's why your text goes grey like that between your two "It's" words.

If your goal is to destroy your health in the fastest way possible I think it's a good idea. Actually only thing worse than this diet I can think of is a milk only diet.

Our digestive system is not designed for meat, it is much longer than meat eaters. We evolved as frugivores.

I started to regain my health once I switched to vegan, especially when I'm on a raw vegan diet.

Btw, only animal products contain cholesterol. Do you think it's a good idea to put a lot of that in your body?

Ah... I did say this was controversial.

I'm super glad you've found a whole lot of health on a raw vegan diet, that's awesome!

The problem is that there is so much information out there, from so many different people and experts, most of it contradictory, that I figure the only way to truly see what works for me is to try them myself.

There is a fair bit of information about cholesterol:

Cholesterol is most commonly transported in the blood by molecules composed of fat and protein called lipoproteins. From least dense to most dense, they come in five forms: chylomicrons, very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and high-density lipoproteins (HDL).

HDL cholesterol is frequently known as “the good cholesterol.”

I'm not saying it's right and your wrong, not at all... I'm just saying that I don't know. I'm actually thinking about I might take some time off and just eat a normal healthy balanced diet... and then try vegetarian to see how that goes.

I'm sure you're right about the frugivores... I was thinking about the genetic history of my DNA over the last 150,000 years, whereas you're going right back to the beginning. I like that.

Thanks for your comment. I love talking about all of this and I really appreciate you taking the time.
