The anti-keto-carnivore brigade, who in truth understand absolutely nothing about the diet, which is, in fact, a lifestyle, won’t like this “how to travel on keto-carnivore” story much.
And that’s great!
The purpose of this article is to point out how simple it is to remain on one of the healthiest diets for life, despite all the millions of nasty junk food temptations staring you in the face every day and even when traveling by air.
No matter what you say or how often you’ve proven your success with photos, videos, a track record of 8 years, and multiple client reviews, the anti-keto camp keeps saying no, it’s not a sustainable way to live!
On top of that, they then love to claim my evidence is only “anecdotal,” based on myself, and it doesn’t count as scientific proof.
Wrong again — the opposite is true.
Time-tested experimentation and experience with myself and hundreds of other human beings that worked are proven empirical scientific evidence.
Empirical evidence is information obtained through observation and documentation of certain behavior and patterns or through an experiment.Corporatefinanceinstitute.com

Here’s how I stay in 100% ketosis when traveling for 36 hours across continents, with long stopovers by airplane
I only travel light with carry-on bags, even if I’m going on a 4-week international trip to another continent.
Why pack a gigantic suitcase or tow half your wardrobe with you?
Maybe you haven’t heard, but they also have laundry shops and clothes washing machines in other countries, not just the USA and Europe!
Yep, washing machines are a global hit — they are everywhere.
Therefore, I only pack a small duffel bag with my favorite clothes and wash them when I need to.
Airlines allow 2 carry-on bags under a specific size and weight of around 10 lbs.
So, I bring my packed duffel bag of clothes, my computer bag with charges, a power bank, and plenty of cables, which also makes the bag pretty much full.
Where do I put my food, then?
Here’s the trick most folks don’t know:
You can have a 3rd bag containing only precooked and ready-to-eat foods.
Just like a separate medical bag is necessary and allowed, food is too. Why?
I’ve said it 1000 times, and I’ll say it again:
Real food is your medicine, that’s why. You’re therefore bringing your dietary requirements on board, which is what you live on.
That’s the key:
Airlines are not allowed to prevent you from bringing your food on the trip, as it qualifies as a prescribed and vital medical kit unwell people must travel with.
I pre-make the foods, package them in aluminum foil or paper, and place them neatly in a durable small cotton or cooler bag.
My precooked food list:
- 10 boiled eggs (keep them in the shell for freshness)
- 2 packs of fried organic bacon
- 5 bags of sugar-free organic beef jerky
- Coconut oil to sip (must be under 125 ml)
- Sharp cheddar cheese
- Almonds, pistachios, and cashews
How about drinks?
As you know, you’re not allowed to bring on any liquid in containers bigger than 125 ml.
Unfortunately, bringing your own water flask from home makes it impossible to avoid airplane plastic bottles and reduce waste.
But I’ve got another bunny to pull from my magic hat.
Coconuts! Yep, you heard right.
You can bring coconuts through security and enjoy coconut water in the air.
Coconuts are, of course, closed and classified as a fruit.
There you have your keto-carnivore food travel bag that will easily see you through a 24 to 36-hour long-haul air travel journey.
There’s no need to starve yourself or fast for the whole trip, which isn’t a problem either if you’re a fat-burner like me.
However, it’s a pleasure to enjoy these healthy keto snacks along the way and funny to watch others stare at you in bewilderment when you lay out your healthy foods and coconuts!

A message to the dear naysayers, calling the keto-carnivore diet unsustainable in the long term:
I just gave you the free:
“The Easy Keto-Carnivore Travel Food and Survival Guide!”
Besides eating junk food throughout the trip, most people’s next biggest mistake is not to move.
Staying idle and sitting in uncomfortable airplane seats for hours on end stiffens your joints, gives you back aches, and weakens your muscles.
That’s why it’s vital to keep moving during your flights.
Eat right, drink lots of water and coconut water, and walk around during your flight!
