The start of January not only coincides with everyone’s favorite New Year’s resolution (losing weight), but also with World Carnivore Month. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.
The Carnivore Diet (aka the Zero Carb Diet) has been getting more attention and notoriety recently, as people try the diet and experience results unlike any they’ve experience previously. It also helps that the diet has been the subject of discussion on multiple Joe Rogan podcasts such as Shawn Baker and Jordan Peterson (who was turned on to the diet by his daughter, Mikhaila Peterson.

Yes, you read that correctly: meat, fish, cheese, eggs, and butter. For meat, beef with a high fat content is preferred. Think ribeyes. No inflammatory vegetables, fruits, pasta, bread, etc. Just protein and fat.

Numerous Carnivore Diet followers have been sharing their results, and they’re nothing short of mind-blowing. MeatHeals.com has many testimonials to the drastic health improvement from following this diet such as fat loss, increased energy, sleep improvement, mental clarity, improved skin clarity, and improved digestion/gut function just to name a few.
The penultimate elimination diet has landed here.
Once you remove inflammatory grains, fake fats, and unnecessary genetically-modified sugar-laden “fruits” and vegetables, you’re left with all you really need – protein and natural fats – and all of the nutrients to go along with it.
