Thinking of trying out Carnivore Diet – but still not sure whether it works?
You are not the only one having doubts!
It’s completely understandable. We’ve all been to that place to start with.
Here’s some more information to help you dispel those doubts and make an informed decision.
Why is the Carnivore Diet so controversial?
Carnivore Diet flies in the face of all accepted wisdom on nutrition.
We are told time and time again to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, plus “healthy” grains and seed-based oils while cutting down on animal fat and red meat.
Rejecting these dogmas is not easy. But ask yourself this – how well is our society doing on those recommendations?
We are facing an epidemic of obesity and related health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and auto-immune disorders. The number of cases just keeps growing and growing.
Let’s face it, the current paradigm is failing spectacularly! None of it is working the way it’s supposed to.
It’s time to try something completely different.
Scientific Studies of Carnivore Diet
If the government guidelines are failing, then what about science?
Are there any large scale studies to back up Carnivore?
The answer is no – not yet. Because our scientific research model is flawed too!
Conducting a large-scale study is not cheap so new concepts typically get studied when there is someone willing to pay for it. And a scientist willing to go out on a limb and attract controversy.
There was a study of 2029 adults on Carnivore Diet conducted in 2021 finding few adverse effects and high levels of satisfaction with health improvements.
So who can you trust?
If you can’t trust government guidelines, nutrition gurus or “The Science”, then who can you trust?
The answer is simple. You can trust yourself.
And you can trust a community of people who faced the same problems as you – and found an effective way to combat them.
You can conduct your own n=1 experiment and try Carnivore for 30 days.
That’s the best way to find out whether it works for you!
Vast majority of people who try it report great improvements in their health, body composition and overall well-being.
Carnivore Diet: Anecdotal Evidence
Mainstream scientists and nutritionists are often dismissive of “anecdotal evidence”.
They make it sound completely irrelevant. As if we are talking just a handful of people who may of course be outliers.
But what about if there are tens of thousands of people who get the same great results? Or even hundreds of thousands?
It’s difficult to calculate precisely but online communities dedicated to Carnivore run into those sort of numbers.
Carnivore Diet and Weight Loss
Carnivore does wonders for weight loss! It works like Keto on steroids (figuratively speaking – not literally!)
If you are overweight, then Carnivore will most likely help you shed those extra pounds quickly and easily.
Some experts think that Carnivore to a certain extent mimics fasting resulting in rapid and easy weight loss.

Food Addictions and Cravings
Carnivore Diet helps people break away from their addiction to carbs and other junk foods. Food cravings typically go away completely once your body adapts to Carnivore.
Some people report improvements in the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
It can also help somewhat with eating disorders.
But it must be noted that the underlying reasons for these conditions are usually related to mental health and therefore require specialist medical help.
Carnivore Diet is Not a Panacea!
Having said all that, Carnivore Diet is not some miracle cure that will solve all your health problems.
It should be used as a lifestyle choice alongside actual treatments, to help reduce symptoms and boost treatment effectiveness.
Always consult your doctor or another qualified health professional before embarking on new diet regimens.
Why does Carnivore Diet lead to these health improvements?
Carnivore Diet gives our human bodies complete and bioavailable nutrition without any harmful chemicals.
Plants contain their own natural pesticide even when not sprayed with chemical pesticide. This is what Dr Chaffee means when he says plants are trying to kill you!
This effect gets even worse with genetically-modified plants.
Animal foods are made of the same things that we are made of. Our bodies have the chance to heal and absorb the nutrients which are then used to rebuild us from the inside out.
Plants and processed foods disrupt the gut microbiome, creating leaky gut and a whole host of other problems from there.
