I found out about the carnivore diet 2.5 years ago when at the time I was about 30 days into adopting and adhering to a plant based diet. At that time in my formal nutrition courses I was being taught the basic food Pyramid and MyPlate shenanigans with an extra emphasis on plant-based nutrition as my professors were regurgitating the same misguided and uninformed recommendations/guidelines that led to our country’s chronic disease epidemic. It was at that point I realized that I needed to take my nutrition education into my own hands. I started experimenting with my diet, reading a lot research and learning as much as possible. I have been eating mostly beef, eggs, pork and chicken for the better part of the past 2 years. Unlike a lot of people who find the carnivore diet, I fortunately did not have any chronic or serious health problems however that is not to say that I didn’t experience a tremendous amount of change with my body and overall health.
Some things that the diet helped me with are:
-Gastrointestinal consistency & normalization
-Cognitive clarity /enhancement
-Daily fatigue and energy levels
Its amazing how dramatic and life changing this lifestyle and way of eating really is, yet it is so incredibly simple and sustainable. Lets all just eat more BEEF!
