I always have to roll my eyes when I see another headline saying something to the effect: “I’ve been doing the keto diet for 7 or 30 days and this is what happened.”
Folks who have “tested” something for a few days or weeks are hardly in a position to give advice on the subject, let alone tell people it’s right or wrong. They just can’t and don’t know anywhere near enough about it, especially when it comes to nutrition, to make judgments.
Keto-Carnivore isn’t simply a diet, it’s a serious lifestyle change, which you need to understand (yes, study) to practice successfully.
The bottom line is, however, it’s simple to follow and thrive on if you do it right.
If you do, your outcome will be fantastic, just like mine and millions of others have been.
That’s why it’s best not to listen to the newbies handing out advice which could confuse and possibly lead you to not give this lifestyle a try.
You’re far better off buying yourself a time-tested book or reading articles written by experts online.
What is Keto-Carnivore exactly?
You’ve noticed I don’t just call it keto, but Keto-Carnivore. That’s because I mostly eat meat and eggs these days.
On the keto diet, you can eat:
Meat, seafood, fish, eggs, vegetables, nuts and seeds, cheese, dark chocolate, herbs and spices, butter, olive, avocado, and coconut oil.
On the carnivore diet, your goal is to only eat meat, fish, seafood, eggs, and butter. It’s a full-on animal product-only way of eating.
Sound boring? Trust me, it’s not. With a little creativity, you can make all kinds of delicious dishes using only animal products.
You can enjoy an abundance of all those yummy delights, such as:
Steak, bacon, lamb, chicken, duck, pork chops, ribs, fish, lobster, clams, oysters, shrimps, squid, and sashimi, to name the basics.
On top of that, you can eat as many eggs as you like — no, eggs are not the cause of poor cholesterol, and neither are meat, fish, and seafood for that matter.
“After decades of avoiding eggs because we were told that cholesterol caused heart attacks, the 2015 US Dietary Guidelines officially exonerated them, finding no link between dietary cholesterol and heart disease,” writes Hyman. “Now eggs are a health food.”
Don’t believe the chatter about that being the case, nor the “studies” people may throw at you for eating meat. There are studies pro and contra everything, and the science world isn’t exactly the most honest these days either.
Just a few years ago, the American Heart Association had the nerve to publish a study claiming vegetable oils are actually heart-healthy!
And guess who sponsored that bogus report? Mazzola is one of the biggest perpetrators of nasty seed oil production in the world.
Funny that, don’t you think?
Anti-meat folks, otherwise known as vegans, have claimed all kinds of things will happen to my body and health.
I’ll suffer kidney failure, a fatty liver, leading to non-alcoholic cirrhosis, terrible cholesterol, and a heart attack or stroke.
Well, here I am 7 years into my Keto-Carnivore adventure, fit as a fiddle with no health issues whatsoever.
The reason I studied and changed my diet to Keto-Carnivore in 2016 was because I had a stroke in 2015. I was 60lbs. overweight, on tons of meds, and an unhealthy old looking mid-life crisis man!
Keto-Carnivore saved my life
Once I switched my food and drink intake, everything changed rapidly for me.
I lost the excess weight within 2 months, my skin cleared up and started to glow, I gained endless all-day energy, my sleep improved, I became strong in body and mind, and nothing could hold me back anymore.
Before I transitioned, many things, mostly being out of shape and lacking self-confidence put me down and held me back, making me depressed and unhappy.
I reversed my aging process and wound up looking far younger at 50 than when I was 40.
Keto-Carnivore gave me a second chance in life, enabling me to kick-start a new career path and embrace a new lifestyle of freedom and positivity.
The Keto-Carnivore diet is natural and healthy. Why wouldn’t it be? All you do is consume what nature has given us for millions of years. You eat just as our primal ancestors did.
And no, our bodies haven’t evolved and changed over time for us to live best from plants.
Note: Should conventional animal farming and meat production be changed to be more human, sustainable, and organic?
Yes, without a doubt, is the answer. Unfortunately, however, the food industry isn’t honest either and has no interest in your health or in how animals are treated.
For that reason, your best option is to go out of your way to shop at farmers’ markets.
