Looking Out of a Skyscaper

Dr. Ted Naiman says he has now had many patients who have done 30-, 60-, and 90-day trials of the carnivore diet, with generally good results and normal labs. However, he has been finding that longer term, the diet may be more concerning. “I have now had a small handful of patients who were doing this longer than six months who have reported vague fatigue. The lab workup in these people is usually normal except for very low folate levels, below the normal range.” (Folate, vitamin B9, is an essential vitamin for cellular processes. It is found in high amounts in spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, beet tops and chard; in asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli; and in egg yolks and fresh meats, especially liver and kidney; and in avocado and citrus fruits. Here is a good list of food folate sources.) - https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/carnivore
