Getting Started With Carnivore Diet

What Is The Carnivore Diet

The carnivore diet consists of meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs with no vegetables, fruit, or other plant-based foods. It sometimes also contains full-fat dairy products such as butter or heavy cream.


This diet is good for those who want to lose body fat without feeling hungry all the time. People with type 2 diabetes have also reported major improvements on the carnivore diet. The carnivore diet is a kind of elimination diet because it avoids foods that might cause inflammation or autoimmune reactions.


The carnivore diet is a very low carbohydrate diet, which can help your body transition to burning fats for fuel. This can make your body burn fats instead of carbs, which they call being “fat-adapted.” If you choose fatty cuts of meat such as ribeye steaks, or add some butter to lean cuts, the carnivore diet can be a ketogenic diet. In this mode, your body turns fats into ketones for fuel, and that’s called being “keto-adapted.”

The carnivore diet means getting your nutritional needs met through animal products. Most people either fully eliminate plant foods or greatly reduce them. Once your health is better you may continue on the diet or carefully reintroduce various plants that are well-tolerated. All videos >
