Carnivorous Way of Eating

CarniWay means a Carnivorous Way of Eating. 'Way of eating' or WoE is about building a long-term healthy lifestyle that is sustainable, easy, and feels natural. It's important to realize that a way of thinking must first be introduced. You must reflect on your long-term goals and whether health is important to you and the people that love and support you. If you're suffering from chronic disease that debilitates you or brings you pain - you need to decide if it's worth it to try a new Way of Eating that has the ability to resolve or mitigate your problems. Once you have clear goals, you can invest time into understanding why it is worth it to try a carnivorous way of eating. You will be able to learn the science and history of eating meat and how it likely helped humans evolve into the beings we are today. Finally, you will be given an opportunity to lift the rose-colored glasses from your eyes to see the nutritional apocalypse that modern life has become, and you can make a well informed choice to attempt a diet that most deem suicide. Your perspective may radically change. Be prepared. 

 

CarniWay will eventually become easy, but in the beginning it can be the hardest and most difficult decision you've ever made. Diets and the way we think about them affect every facet of our life because our bodies react to the information that food gives them. Each meal is not just a boost of protein and fat, it's a data point that your whole body uses to implicity plan your future - and your hormones, gut, and metabolism are all trying to make the correct choice based on the programming of millions of years of evolution and the information contained within your meal.

Food as information is important of course, but maintaining the CarniWay is about understanding how humans have made decisions in the past and why today it is frowned upon to eat red meat. You must understand that there is little consensus in the nutrition science sphere. Food is money and it has led to corruption, false marketing, and made up science. This website is to show you how to think of CarniWay as not so much a leap of faith, but a well thought out planned jump. When you land on the other side with several weeks of CarniWay living in your belt - you will be able to directly compare your experience with the best 'consensus advice' and see if your doubt was misplaced. 

How often do people change their minds? Very rarely, and only after a moment where they are faced with a contradiction or a surprise between new information and what they think they know. Usually, the power of confirmation bias or cognitive dissonance serves to prevent one's mind from being changed -- but if their curiousity can be used as a tool to destroy ignorance and they can find virtue in admitting they were wrong, they can at least do the required investigation to change their mind. Information is one way to change a mind, the other is through personal experience. I think that personal experience of a CarniWay for 4-12 weeks can completely change your mind over whether plants are necessary for optimal health. 

I want you to know that thousands of people have discovered for themselves whether plants are necessary for optimal health and have adopted one of the various CarniWays as a long term lifestyle, both as a way to feel great every day, AND to prevent chronic diseases of overnutrition, malnutrition, or toxins from plant products. 

1. There is no real consensus - it's up to you to do your own research and pick a way of eating - it's best to understand multiple view points and the pros and cons of each. I want to make it clear that no one knows everything. 

2. Humans are one species - and species generally have a single diet that gives them optimal health - BUT, the massive changes in lifestyles of humans over the past 10,000 years has made it extremely difficult to figure out what that best diet is. 

3. Scientific opinion changes one funeral at a time. 

4. Opinions on nutrition are as controversial as politics or religion - hopefully, the results of the CarniWOE make it speak for itself, but until you try it, all you will have is the conflicting opinions of other people. 

5. It's important to have community, a CarniWay works best when done with family, with friends, in a group, or by seeking the advice and support of the online world. This website will be a portal to seeking this community and using it for positive personal improvement. I also hope that you become a role model in your own small community and share this knowledge and information. Beating misinformation is hard work!

6. I fully believe that you can benefit from CarniWay, but my job is to convince you that an experiment won't kill you, is worth your time and money, and guide you through understanding your life and how best to apply CarniWay principles.

82% of those on the CarniWay have already tried a ketogenic diet (less than 50 grams of carbohydrates a day)

What important nutritional wisdom did you personally gain through trying the above diets?

  • Everything you've learned about nutrition is wrong.

  • Carbs don’t agree with me.

  • I dont need carbs, and should not have pasta or bread.

  • They don’t work as well as CarniWay

  • Aside from the Keto diet, I gained weight on all of them.

  • Less carbs means staying sharp.

  • From keto I learned abstinence is easier than restriction.

  • No such thing as a calorie, fat is nothing to be feared.

  • Vegan diet will eventually deplete you. If you don’t want to be carnivore, the Keto diet is probably the best other diet.

  • It’s all bullshit.

  • Ketogenic diets are the best for mood and energy levels.

  • I don’t like counting calories.

  • CarniWay is optimal, I look and perform my best on it.

  • That fat isn't the enemy.

  • Needs to be sustainable, fat is vital.

  • It’s near impossible to white-knuckle your appetite/craving while still trying to feed those cravings through moderation. Find a way of eating that allows one to eat the food they like, be satiated from it and that doesn't trigger random cravings for non-food products.

  • Increased vegetable consumption does not increase energy, mood, or wellbeing.

  • I did try vegan & vegetarian but couldn't last a month. Fibre and sugar are major issues for me. Keto was awesome to start with and then my digestion went downhill.

  • High carb diets got me fatty liver and symptoms of pre-diabetes.

  • My diet composition in a SAD or Mediterranean style had zero effect on body composition regardless of calorie consumption. Low carb and keto were the first weight loss I’d ever seen. Allergies sent me to ZC/Carnivore after 9-ish months of keto.

  • That more dietary choices and options does not mean more freedom - it means less. It means you have to stay more disciplined, fight more cravings, and deal with issues that come from different foods.

  • The weight always crept back on. Not satisfying, didn’t cure my sugar addiction.

  • Low fat doesn't work.

  • Plants aren't necessarily the super foods I thought they were. I felt just as bad, if not worse, on vegan.

  • Everything works - temporarily. Only carnivore continues to give consistent results.

  • Weighing food is important.

  • They worked a little bit but not enough to be worth it.

  • They may work for others but they don't work for me.

  • The only diet that worked was low carb.

  • Veganism is stupid. Paleo is cool.

  • Listen to your body on diet, and include animal products daily for nutritional needs.

  • You’ll always gain it back.

  • Sugar and Carbs = No bueno

  • The only carbs I need are naturally occurring in meats and vegetables.

  • I don't like plants, generally.

  • I need meat.

  • Plants are not necessary and look for nutritionally dense foods.

  • Its gotta be able to fit into your lifestyle or else you wont stick with it

  • Ketogenic diets are the only ones that work.

  • Combine with intermittent fasting and exercise for best results, if you need to heal, then sleep more.

  • Calorie counting is a bunch of nonsense. Vegetarianism and low fat diets are flat out bad for you. Carbohydrates are not your friend.

  • Understanding what you consume matters.

  • They don’t make me healthy.

  • Veggies suck.

  • Listen to your body, eat when hungry, assess your nutrition needs, when you stray from your goals don’t beat yourself up just get back on the bandwagon.

  • That it’s all bs.

  • Keto works.

  • Fasting is awesome!

  • With CICO/standard diet advice I am constantly hungry.

  • Listen to your body.

  • Most don’t work.

  • Too much effort for me to count calories.

  • Grain free or gluten free diets would probably be beneficial for most. Quality of meat is important.

  • Eat whole foods, mainly meat.

  • Energy balance is important.

  • Counting calories don't matter, because calories out is so variable. It is 100% what foods you eat, not how much food you are eating.

  • Carbs are bad, and the SAD is unnatural

  • Vegan / vegetarian always hungry, not enough fat or protein, grains make me very fatigued.

  • CICO is not entirely accurate.

  • Limiting carb intake is a very effective way of controlling hunger and clearing the mind.

  • That meat has everything you need.

  • I try to learn "nutritional wisdom" and use that info to make dietary decisions, not the other way around.

  • That the more meat I eat the better I feel.

  • Only very low carb or no carb works for me.

  • 1. You have to find what works for you. 2. You’re an individual, and you may not always respond to dietary changes exactly the way that Reddit insists will be true for everyone. 3. There are no rules with regard to eating; there’s only what you choose to eat/not eat.

  • Keto and Paleo made me realize the importance of quality food.

  • CICO was a constant struggle, but the lower my carb intake, the better I felt.

  • Stay away from grain and sugar.

  • Vegetables hurt.

  • Try everything and see what works best for you!

  • Eat when hungry. Don't eat when not.

  • If you can stick to a WOE(Way of Eating) it can make a big difference in your life.

  • Controlling hunger and inflammation is the key.

  • We can get all nutrients from animal foods

  • I mostly learned what didn't work. I learned that calories in/calories out does work, but only up to a point, then a rebound effect comes in to play.

  • Find what you can stick with. Meat based for me.

  • Collected a lot of data on what worked and what didn't work for me. Can subsist on many different ways of eating, but thrive on a few.

  • Sugar is bad.

  • Vegetarian and vegan diets feel good at first, but slowly whittle away at your health.

  • How I feel eating certain things. What irritates my eczema.

  • The lower the carbs the easier to lose weight.

  • I think my body processes carbs poorly and the less I include the better I feel. Plants are optional for me personally, but meat is not, I must include meat.

  • Food quality matters.

  • Whole grains cause inflammation.

  • Food is for nutrition, not pleasure.

  • All chronic disease is lactic acidosis, lactic acidosis is caused by burning sugar, meat is the #1 original superfood and should be in everybody's diet.

  • We have been told wrong what we should be eating.

  • That they were not optimal for me.

  • I felt like crap eating heavy carbs and low fat. Went keto, realized I could live off of meat-only and started that.

  • Some things work, but not for long. Nothing is as simple or effective as zero carb.

  • I am very sensitive to carbohydrates, have many food intolerances and it takes me a long time to get in to ketosis. Many foods that are technically Paleo still trigger autoimmune flares for me.

  • Your mind is the biggest hurdle. Once you moved past it, you can do anything.

  • Sugar is shit, fat is amazing

  • What you eat and put in your body is much more important to your health than simply how much of it.

  • They all might have some benefits, but the ketogenic diet was by far the best for me. Carbohydrates are unnecessary.

  • High carbohydrate, low fat guidelines are killing people. Just because the body can handle carbohydrates doesn't mean they're not dangerous.

  • Dieticians are generally full of shit. All their diets did was make me sicker.

  • Paleo was sort of a gateway for me to CarniWay. It just made sense to be eating the quality foods that were supposed to be eating and eliminating everything we don’t need.

  • Every diet makes you lose weight as long as you are consuming less than you are burning, just find one you can stick to.

  • They don’t work.

  • No one really seems to understand nutrition and we were all taught about it incorrectly in school.

  • The body runs better in ketosis/on low carb.

  • Listen to your body, follow your instincts, do not manipulate externally, do not think you're smarter than your body.

  • It's easy to have too much energy and not enough nutrition density even in an otherwise wholefoods diet.

  • Carbohydrates make your body fat but dietary fat gives you energy.

  • Your body needs nutrients, and everybody is a little different.

  • CICO doesn’t work. I need to cycle through different ways of eating to fight homeostasis and stabilize my weight, as well as fix insulin resistance.

  • Meat is better.

  • They all work to an extent if you can stick to them.

  • n=1, do what works for you.

  • Low-carb works.

  • Nothing was gained. Only further into confusion.

  • Plants don't want to be eaten.

  • That vegan diet causes disease.

  • Eat what works.

  • That ketosis is great for my physical and mental health.

  • All of them worked to some degree but higher protein/lower carb always worked best. These all led to CarniWay being my optimal diet.

  • Everything can work for a few months or years but in the end they might harm you in ways you could not imagine so always try to research for advocates that are against the current diet you do and try to logically and scientifically debunk them in order to continiue doing it while getting actual results when u do a certain diet.

  • Elimination of sugar is critical to health.

  • Fat is good, sugar is bad.

  • Sugar & carbs are the cancer for humanity.

  • CarniWay is species appropriate for homo sapians

  • The vast majority of "nutritional science" is poorly designed and much is corrupt. I even have a catchphrase "Lies, Damn Lies, Statistics, Epidemiology" (Epidemiology to track diseases is fine, powerful and good, but that's not how it's used here)

  • I have food intolerances (grains and dairy). Grains will seemingly never work with me again, but on carnivore the ill effects of dairy seem to be non-existent. My constant back pain goes completely away on carnivore.

  • The lower the carbs, the better.

  • Only keto / low carb works for weight loss.

  • CICO rules but stresses me out.

  • Whole foods is important.

  • There’s more to losing weight than cutting out sugars.

  • Meat is the only food you need.

  • Keep evolving and work out what's best for your body.

  • Every one sucked but Keto.

  • Im more emotionally stable eating meat and generally feel better. So long as the meat is of good quality. If the meat is of bad quality it impacts me badly. Possibly due to the animal being overtreated with medicine or having had a poor diet and lifestyle that wasnt natural for it. Wild game meat, organic and grass fed meats and fats generally make me feel great. I dont tolerate minced meats, possibly due to their alleged histamine content.

  • That food affects the way you feel, improved awareness of how the body feels on an ongoing basis.

  • That none of them work longterm and I felt horrible on them. Also learned that veganism was the worst of all and made me feel the worst. Also I learned that restricting calories brings a low quality in energy and therefore low quality of life. Also learned through short veganism that my body needs animal fat and protein.

  • Counting calories doesn’t work long term, and you will lose muscle.

  • That nutrition was immediately connected to well-being.

  • Fruit and veggies makes me feel always hungry and anxious. Never felt satisfied for more than two hours after eating.

  • Only the low-carb, high fat WOE helped me feel good, clear out my brain, and lose excess weight.

  • Micronutrients are as important as macronutrients.

  • All carbs are a drug, the more you eat the more you want.

  • Plant foods are destructive to nearly every facet of my mental and physical well-being.

  • Protein is crucial.

  • Other WOE keep me hungry.

  • Only cutting carbs did anything.

  • The keto diet worked, I lost 90lbs and got rid of my heart burn.

  • Fat is your friend; dietary carbohydrates are the enemy.

  • Portion control works but not long term.

  • Listen to your body.

  • That vegetarian/vegan made my Crohn's symptoms worse.

  • They aren't the solution I was looking for.

  • The human body is an efficient machine that will consistently optimize no matter what you feed it. Different strokes for different folks.

  • The government lies about nutrition

  • The less sugar I ate, the better I felt. I also became much more aware of sugar addiction.

  • Keto and paleo were my favorites and something I'd revisit if I felt the need to. My only learning from the rest was that they're not good for you.

  • Eating whole fresh foods and quality is important and staying away from sugar is important.

  • Low Blood Glucose and insulin levels are king above all else.

  • Carnivore/Keto/LC are healthiest diets.

  • None resolved headaches and some other issues the way CarniWay did.

  • I was the most unhealthy on a vegetarian diet. I ate cheese pizza every day and weighed my heaviest. Keto was a great way to help me break from conventional dietary wisdom. I saw some improvement of symptoms on keto but still did not feel great. I stumbled upon carnivore and am now embarking on this journey out of desperation!

  • Low fat is a load of bull, and eating only vegetables destroyed both my physical and metal health. High fat and meat is the only way to go.

  • The dangers of gluten

  • Sugar is poison. Getting rid of sugar will get you 80% of the way to health no matter what else you're eating.

  • I improved eating Paleo lost 11 lbs 9 lbs fat and 2 lbs muscle. Had lots of cravings while eating carbs. CarniWay I have no problems with cravings.

  • How horrible sugar really is!

  • I can’t have carbs

  • Eating fat does not make you fat and carbs make me lethargic, inflamed, unhealthy and fat.

  • Constant learning starting with Atkins 20 years ago

  • Nothing worked except for keto, and then I stalled with getting rid of excess fat, and went carnivore / relaxed carnivore. I find meal planning with carnivore extremely easy, and that is another reason I love the diet.

  • Carnivore is simplest.

  • Animal fats are critical.

  • That I needed meat and the less carbs the better I felt.

  • Not much except for Atkins, which was a revelation and changed my relationship with sugar immediately.

  • Carbs and insulin are key.

  • I do and feel best when I'm in ketosis and avoid grains/artificial ingredients.

  • Low carb is good for stable energy.

  • The importance of regulating insulin and not stressing my body by eating too many carbs.

  • You need to eat meat for good health.

  • Meat should be the center of all diets. Salt is good. Cholesterol is good.

  • No processed foods is healthy.

  • CarniWay is a great compliment to fasting; equal Carbs + equal fats = weight gain.

  • None of them worked - I don’t consider last diet experiences rewarding.

  • That I'm addicted to sugar and even a little bit will make me crave more.

  • Less is more and meat is best.

  • To eat clean and as natural as possible.

  • Some diets can make you worse. Especially the Vegan diet. It almost killed me.

  • Sugar is bad.

  • You don’t need fiber.

What was your transition into the CarniWay like? Was adapting difficult? What was hard? Did you feel crappy?

  • Transition wasn't too hard but sometimes I had diarrhea.

  • Not difficult as steak has always been my favorite food.

  • Keto-flu for about 3-4 days. Didnt feel like working out for about 14 days, but After this, everything was smooth and I was not looking back.

  • Had some oxalate dumping in beginning and again after I quit coffee and chocolate. Had to adjust minerals for a period of time.

  • Only downside was the tons of diarrhea.

  • Plain sailing.

  • I felt hungover for about a week and then it was smooth sailing.

  • Very easy and natural transfer from keto. I still incorporate fasting.

  • Easy

  • Coming from keto it was easy

  • Electrolyte issues.

  • No harsh adaptation issues. I was keto for almost a year before so I was already fat adapted. Biggest “issue” was probably not eating enough at the beginning.

  • My energy was low, but I loved removing the shackles of appetite.

  • I eased into it to give my body time to adjust to increased meat. No issues at all.

  • I adapted pretty quick, no other issues, except the weight loss. I am already skinny.

  • No issues whatsoever from keto to carnivore. Immediate relief of allergies and fatigue within 2 days of changing the WOE.

  • One week of mild headache and fatigue. Transition from keto prior.

  • First week I had headaches. I feel lightheaded when I forget to take magnesium.

  • Crappy 2 days.

  • Seamless.

  • Constipated.

  • I only had extreme carb cravings and hypoglycemia, so while it was hard to stay 100% carnivore, it wasn't too difficult.

  • Toilet unpleasant but everything else easy

  • Basically didn't notice. Went from S.A.D. to Carnivore with ease.

  • Low gym energy for 6 months.

  • I have about a 3 day window of suffering every time I adapt.

  • Felt great almost immediately, sugar cravings were gone within a couple of days.

  • I had the runs for 4 months, comes back sometimes.

  • About 3 months of reduced energy, but pretty smooth overall.

  • Had some digestive issues for approximately three weeks but not too difficult.

  • I do currently feel somewhat crappy physically, but much clearer mentally.

  • 2 weeks of fuck you and 1 week of crap. :-)

  • Felt fine, just ate extra fat and beef and broth and salt.

  • Easy - no issues. Transitioning to keto was originally much harder.

  • First month consistent diarrhea, some low energy and muscle cramping still an issue at times.

  • It was simple from keto.

  • Was much easier than expected

  • I never got the "flu-like symptoms", but I did have some intense cravings.

  • Transition was hard mostly because I love food. I felt crappy for a while. The lack of variety and social aspect are the most difficult for me.

  • I came from keto and found the transition to very easy. The hardest part is the social aspect.

  • Came from keto so it was seamless

  • Was keto around 4 months before starting, so transition was not too difficult. The biggest issue was I ate a lot of meat for the first few months, around 5+ pounds daily.

  • The first couple attempts were miserable, adding in IF was the most important thing to change that.

  • What I eat is only part of the picture with my illness, there are better days than previous but still plenty of crappy days.

  • Took almost a month for BMs to be normal.

  • No, moved from keto into ZC without any issues.

  • Electrolytes help a lot.

  • Salt fixed all issues.

  • Very smooth transition.

  • Adapting from keto was rough! I had absolutely no energy or stamina and fluctuated between diarrhea and sticky, sludgy poop for about a month.

  • It honestly wasn’t difficult at all. I was keto for a year before hand which probably helped.

  • It was hard until I increased my salt intake.

  • Went from Keto + IF, very easy.

  • It's been mostly effortless. Not used to cooking a lot so that's been a change. Lifting energy has been good but it feels like it takes more effort to go up stairs.

  • I came from Keto, so transitioning hasn't been too hard, other than carb cravings.

  • I had basically no adaptation phase.

  • Felt like dogshit for about a week. I was already keto adapted (or thought I was) and I had keto flu like I have never experienced before. Then it took about 6 weeks for my bowels to sort themselves out (Flora and fauna optimized for plants dying off and being replaced).

  • I came from Keto for 4 years prior, and had little to no issue since I always had gone light on the plants.

  • No keto flu but, boy oh boy, those cravings!

  • Not a difficult transition as I was already fat adapted and on keto. Initially I had a lot of cravings for only very specific foods outside of the diet- nuts mostly, and occasional onions and tomatoes. I tinkered with what I ate and steak with added fat felt the best for an everyday meal and it still does. Mostly I felt improved moods and calmness right away and my sleep and energy was amazing. Digestive bloating went away, I lost the few grey hairs I had as my hair became darker again, and skin felt great, noticed I didnt need to obsessively use chapsticks and lotions.

  • Adaptation was difficult, had trouble accessing meat during initial month.

  • Very easy. I thrive in extreme conditions

  • Did keto first then CD

  • Was doing keto for a year before so it was natural. Was harder to give up the chocolate, nuts and seeds. Not missing them now.

  • It was of no problem, coming from a keto diet.

  • Some bowl and sleep issues but not that difficult.

  • Went very easy.

  • The transition was rough, I had a migraine for the first couple of weeks straight.

  • Physically, it wasn't hard. I was already a long term keto-er and I love meat. Mentally it was more difficult. I was always scared I was eating too much, I was worried about being so hungry in the beginning.

  • Easy adaptation minimal cravings

  • It was easy since I already ate keto. I was only eating meat and vegetables, so skipping the vegetables made sense considering I never liked them anyway. It's been hard mainly from a social standpoint. Having a steak with chips is fine, but having only the steak makes people think you're crazy. My family's reaction to me eating this way isn't exactly supportive, so I keep it to myself.

  • Definitely weird. My friends and family kind of think it’s odd or dangerous but I don’t blame them; I would’ve thought the same things a couple months ago. I’m only in my second week of CD and still feel some sugar and carb cravings but the longer I stay on the diet, the easier it becomes to turn down those other foods. I think in another week or two I won’t crave carbs at all.

  • I was already on keto since 2012 and I already mostly ate only meat. Transitioning to carnivore was easy because the greens were causing me issues occasionally.

  • I had no difficulties (transitioned from keto). The only problems I had were social in nature (family member pressure).

  • Slightly bored into the first week or 2 but got over it shortly thereafter and now crave meat and fat.

  • Brutal, felt bad for many months.

  • Came from keto so it was natural to phase out things like kale and asparagus and avocados

  • 3 weeks of diarrhea and candida die off.

  • I had no problems. I fasted a day beforehand. I had been experimenting with fasting and IF for months beforehand so I think I was easily able to shift to using fat as energy.

  • Easier than expected. Mostly a mental game.

  • It was fine because I was already doing keto.

  • Crappy during week 3, but fine otherwise.

  • it wasn't hard coming from a keto background and already eating a lot of meat, it was more psychological resistance around removing plants.

  • I came straight from nearly two months of keto, so the transition was smooth.

  • Adapting was easy since I had done keto before and knew what to expect. I also already hated vegetables so it was awesome to be free of the burden of eating them for “health”.

  • Adapting was hard for me for first 3 months or so.

  • Very minor digestive issues (nausea), but otherwise nothing.

  • I saw improvement in GI issues at day 44. Felt very tired at the beginning. Adapting was not difficult, but I had to take it easy for those 44 days because of feeling tired.

  • Bad diarrhea.

  • Easy after 2 years keto / 1 year whole (unprocessed) food

  • It was no problem after 12 years of keto/low carb. Especially since my pretty severe back pain went away and comes back the next day after any cheat.

  • Surprisingly easy. Felt better very soon. Did have diarrhea for a week or so. Drank lots of salty water. Suspected Keto flu after about 3 weeks for a few days. Zero cravings.

  • Relatively easy as I already was almost only eating 2-3 foods on a regular basis, although with some variety now and then. It has helped in many ways but these days I also experiment with some carbs to see how I feel with it. I did go full on CarniWay for a while (around half a year) though, with the exception of christmas food and one or two family dinners. Generally I find that CarniWay can work well but is hard to follow where I live (Denmark). I'm trying to work with a local butcher to make it a little easier to follow. Its too hard to find fatty meats from good sources at reasonable prices here.

  • Not hard, meat is delicious. Social/spousal perception is probably the hardest part.

  • I stopped all grains and sugar first, also coffee. Then Keto for about 10 days with a lot of fatigue and pain in my legs. Then straight to carnivore and after 4 days a light bulb went on. I had terrible constipation around week two. But since then all is great!

  • Very easy at the beginning because I ate a lot but as I had to reduce my daily intake for insomnia and inflammatory brain I felt fatigued for very long period of time.

  • Challenging in the first 2 weeks

  • It wasn't very hard for me because I had been doing keto. I did get grumpy about 3-5 days in but then suddenly I was on top of the world.

  • I felt crappy for a couple of days, felt cravings still for a good 6 weeks. My gut settled down after 3 weeks or so. Total transition about 8 weeks

  • I felt horrid for a period of 3-4 days, feeling much better than baseline after the 4th day and onward. It was hard only in the sense that I had to continue a strenuous and physical job during the initial adaption.

  • Feeling like crap after eating too little fat.

  • Easy coming from keto. Maybe a new wave of a keto flu, but I just upped my salt

  • Being keto for months made it smooth enough.

  • Crappy for a week then better.

  • It was perfectly fine, no problems at all.

  • Not that hard, felt 90% better than before less than one week in.

  • Difficult... Took 2 months before I started to feel better. Was struggling with electrolytes and histamine issues

  • OK, some horrific and unexpected digestion issues. Also felt weak and faint at certain times.

  • Easy - meat was always what I preferred to eat, ate most of; never liked bread, pasta, etc; never was junk food eater. Learning carnivore could be "healthy" gave me permission to eat the way I wanted.

  • I had energy dips when starting out and diarrhea for roughly a week. I was already low carb, so mostly the transition was easy.

  • It was pretty hard staying away from treats. Although staying away from veggies was so easy. I’ve done strict diets before so I knew I could do it but eventually I succumbed to cravings and went off CarniWay for a bit. I felt crappy at first but then switched up my meat with a more fatty meat and that was key.

  • It was a little rough the first week, particularly with digestive issues. Got hit with nausea and headaches the fourth week. Feeling good at week 7.

  • Adapting wasn't hard (no keto flu or energy issues), getting rid of my addiction/need for the pleasure of junk food was.

  • Had to use a lipase supplement for a couple of weeks, otherwise fine.

  • Definitely had symptoms even though I’d come from keto. Mostly I think it was electrolyte imbalances and/or oxalate dumping

  • Ate too much fat at first and had terrible diarrhea, otherwise was already keto adapted and felt really good immediately.

  • Eating with others is no longer an option. Too many confused coworkers.

  • After keto it was a natural progression.

  • It took at least 2months to adapt, tiredness main symptom.

  • I felt dizzy and a bit sick for 2 days.

  • I think I felt a little off at first, I do remember being fatigued for about a week and a half. Then all of a sudden I woke up one morning and it was like "Holy crap I feel amazing. Where did all this energy come from?" Sounds Cliche, but that's really how I felt. All my mental health and digestive issues disappeared as well.

  • I felt fine, but had diarrhea issues

  • I was almost zero carb so the final few veggies were easy to let go. No issues.

  • Easy but looser stool for about 3 months.

  • You aren't used to being satiated but still have cravings.

  • From IF and keto to carnivore was easy transition

  • All smooth except some digestive issues early on.

  • Diarrhea for 3 weeks

  • Transitioned from very low carb keto so adapted quickly without hardship. Very few crappy episodes even with warrior OMAD.

  • Have had some issue with electrolyte balance, I have trouble getting enough sodium even after 7 months of CD. Calf cramps are my primary indicator.

  • I was already in ketosis, and already so used to being physically in pain it didn't really phase me. I just woke up one morning and realized it didn't hurt to roll over in bed, and I knew I was closer to healing.

  • I failed the first time trying due to carnivore flu. The second time it took me 4 months to get over carb cravings.

  • I had been doing low-carb in the months before, so it actually wasn’t a major transition. I did feel light headed from time to time in the first two weeks, but I avoided “keto flu.”

  • The first 3-4 months were hard because my body wanted fruit.

  • Cold turkey. Keto flu for a week then easy peasy :) Worst part is the social aspect.

​Have you had any negative effects on CarniWay?

  • A newfound, deep, undying love of anything that even tastes remotely sweet.

  • Liquidy shits in the beginning, but otherwise none at all.

  • Energy slump early on, kidney stones (oxalate dumping) about 15 months in. That was a year ago. No problems since then.

  • Diarrhea and flu like symptoms during transition

  • Nothing that wasn't fixed with supplemented electrolytes.

  • Pork. For some reason or other my body does not get along with pork.

  • My immune system still seems crappy. Just had influenza and strep throat right before that. Not blaming the diet, but it hasn’t yet made my immune system stronger.

  • Hard poops at first.

  • My appetite tanks, so I often feel groggy when I don't actively remind myself to eat.

  • I'm still bloating more in the abdomen than I feel is natural

  • Initial weight gain and hormonal imbalance

  • Tons of fat gain whenever I eat ad lib with higher fat. Copper toxicity from beef liver.

  • Heartburn is worse due to increased fat consumption.

  • I can’t eat out because I’m afraid to eat something that will negatively effect me

  • I’m still adapting to the diet, I think, so my digestion is still not 100%, but better than before.

  • Headaches.

  • Poor joint recovery. Severe hair loss. Rage.

  • Lack of consistent bowel function.

  • The runs if I eat too much fat or too much at once.

  • I experience cramping (abdominals) more often even with supplementation of electrolytes. Occasionally, constipation.

  • It's quite difficult to get accommodated in some settings

  • Clenching my jaws in my sleep. Sometimes very hard.

  • Diarrhea while transitioning from SAD

  • Occasional diarrhea if my fat intake changes alot. testing ratios.

  • Diarrhea from dairy. Social isolation due to people's preconceived notions on what a healthy diet is. Depression upon realising I'd been lied to my entire life and developed health complications as a result of that.

  • Just from people telling me I'm gonna die!

  • I don’t poop as often, but I don’t feel like I have all that food inside me. I still feel light after not pooping for 3 days. No stomach/digestive discomfort

  • Orthostatic hypotension, to combat this, I have added more minerals to my water

  • Possibly pain from going off oxalates too quickly, and early on I had diarrhoea but that cleared up

  • Yes....20 lbs gained over 11 months, with no end. After 6 months my blood sugar was elevated and blood pressure was up

  • Yes. After 8 weeks, worse skin, decreased energy, permanent nausea, permanent sweats, unable to concentrate, shakes, sunken eyes.

  • diarrhea every few days

  • Occasionally I wake up feeling like I've slept all night but it's only been a couple of hours. Then I can't get back to sleep. Later that day will be tired. But doesn't happen often thankfully. Cramps in arch of foot sometimes.

  • I couldn't digest beef and didn't realize for a while, so that sucked.

  • Constipated badly on week 2 - I got really scared but it was just transition. All good now.

  • More sensitive to spices when they are used without my knowledge.

  • Only insomnia when I have eaten too much protein.

  • A weird stomach pain that lasted for a few hours the first week I switched. Went away rather quickly.

  • Bleeding gums

  • When i was strict carnivore, i would get ridicuously tired in the middle of the day, often. I added a small amount of carbs (honey, occasional blueberries) on workout days and it helped immensely.

  • Gaining a bit of weight is the only negative I've had, as well as a return of acne, but I have currently gone through a lot of stress with uni, studying and exams. So coffee (which I quit recently) didn't help with protein digestion and only increased my cortisol, so of course I gained weight and got some acne. But I can imagine I gained weight due to hormones balancing and etc. Acne returned specifically because butter/dairy has a tendency to do that to me.

  • Chronic depression, weight gain (fat not muscle) exhaustion, muscle pain. Nausea

  • Low folate/high homocysteine but improved with addition of liver

  • Acne got a bit worse, but it might be from the cheese.

  • It has become a lot more difficult to relate to others, especially with regards to their carb-induced problems.

  • Not after the adaptation phase no

  • Leaky gut/histamine issues appeared out of nowhere

What's your #MeatHeals story? What changed for the better when you started the CarniWay?

  • It saved my life, in every regard

  • Calmer mind

  • Digestive issues disappeared, joints stopped hurting after working out, hair stopped falling out/started thickening, libido came back, some skin issues went away.

  • Energy levels improved, appetite stabilized. Re-established trust with my body and its hunger signals. Wasn't trying to heal anything.

  • Digestion improved, mood improved, confidence soared.

  • I have no more gut issues, no constipation, no brain fog, no swelling of extremities, no more bile issues, simptoms of PCOS have relieved.

  • Relieved the allergies and food rejection I experienced during pregnancy (2-3 trimester). Relieved lifelong chronic fatigue and anemia. Stabilized weight and energy levels.

  • Hip pain went away, sleep improved majorly. Skin cleared. More lean muscle mass.

  • My gallbladder stopped cramping, my body aches stopped, and I just feel generally better

  • When following the CD I have a 75-90% reduction in autoimmune symptoms. No headaches, better mental clarity, no debilitating fatigue, very few muscle twitches, less dry skin, no bloating. I only get these things when I eat something that I shouldn't. At this point I still have some occasional fatigue, eye floaters, periungal erythema, some dandruff, and see inflammation in the capillaries in my eyelids.

  • Crohns symptoms went away

  • Have had arthritic flare-ups since starting carnivore, but willing to give it a year to find improvements.

  • My eczema heart burn disappeared lost weight

  • Dandruff disappeared.

  • resolved arthritis due to old injury, cleared up skin, sorted out GI issues due to lack of gallbladder, better mental clarity, return of libido

  • Lost fat and felt generally better. Gained a bit of muscle without working out too.

  • I mainly started Carnivore for my S.O. who has IBS and UC. A pure elimination diet to hopefully find out what is causing the issues.

  • body composition improved(less fat more muscle), brain function improved, mood improved, cravings disappeared.

  • Healing CFS , Bascially was slowly getting worse. No supplements or treatments were helping. Then i went CV, Been 5 months now and feeling great! even have been back to school and feel confident to go back to work soon. This diet is very healing. If CV can heal CFS/ME then we simply know it is the most powerful healing diet we can possibly do.

  • Better digestion, mood, energy, gym performance.

  • Joint pain/muscle aches/stiffness/rashes/mental clarity/hormones/chronic fatigue/gut dysbiosis

  • Haven't been on it very long, but already feeling increased energy

  • The heme iron helped promote higher weight loss in ketosis than ferrous iron.

  • Skin, sleep, and migraines improved. Hair and nails are better, cystic acne is healing. Had a dentist tell me my cavity was so deep I would need a root canal, but I didn't feel pain, did carnivore for 2 months and went back and I said I didn't want the root canal. They checked and it seemed to have gotten better and I didn't actually require it.

  • Digestive issues started ramping up when I switched to keto. When I went to the carnivore diet, it took about 2 months to really see improvement. I've still got a long ways to go, but I do believe I've had digestive issues all my life and just thought is was normal. The new normal is a lot better.

  • So far, a lot of the pain and fear is gone that I associated with food and eating. IBS is hell, and it seems to be getting better progressively, although not completely resolved yet.

  • Have CFS/ME, currently in a relapse with symptoms worse than previously. Find more protein and higher fat levels help with fatigue, joint pain, brain fog.

  • No joint pain, no migraines or headaches, less bloating, more mood stability

  • Extreme dandruff and occasional heartburn went away completely, drinking much more water.

  • My joints hurt less and I get fewer migraines

  • I use CarniWay to maintain a better physique with less effort/tracking

  • Healed Colotis

  • Better overall health

  • I find ketones very therapeutic for my neurological issues. It’s easier for me to stay in ketosis this way, though I definitely have to limit protein to do so. My digestion and cravings/binge-eating are much better than when I was keto (and keto was much better than SAD).

  • I just feel like a better me! The best most dramatic part is that I have a healthier relationship with food. It’s no longer the main focus of my life. I finally have freedom.

  • My entire immune system felt better.

  • Weight, energy, hunger, brain clarity.

  • I've got abs now, so that's nice.

  • keto still doing meds, on carnivore on 2nd day I'm off meds

  • Still in my first month, however, I've lost roughly 9 pounds so far.

  • I've only just started, but already my adult acne is starting to clear up.

  • I am not sure. After a while, PKD made me gain weight, loose tons of hair and experience rage not normal to my character

  • pretty much everything. i started just wanting to clear my acne but soon found that other things were healing as well. things i never thought could have been linked to diet. problems i didnt even know i had. my emotional awareness is better, my brain feels sharper, my outlook on life is better, im much more confident, more consistent energy, better skin/hair, my circulation improved, temperature sensitivity, less bloating, lungs feel healthier during cardio, gaining muscle is easier, the list is ever growing.

  • Athletic performance

  • My crohn's disease symptoms completely disapered.

  • Weight loss (60 lbs), body composition improved, joints feel much better, improvement in skin, sun resistance, improved cognition and focus, improved digestion, and my baseline level of anxiety have decreased. These are all generally small changes, but collectively they feel like a pretty big improvement in my well being. I feel like my best me.

  • Lost 50 lbs, recovery time is unreal tendon issues getting better.

  • My overall health, and my body fat percent

  • So many things: better mood, no brain fog, eczema reduction, blood sugar stabilization, arthritis reduction, weight loss, strength gain, no fatigue, able to fast for extended periods, much more energy, better sleep, regulation of periods, etc etc etc

  • I was a vegetarian and sometimes vegan from the age of 12 to 32. I was obese, diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, pcos, mood disorder. I was eating a high carb, low fat, low protein diet and a lot of sugar, junk, and alcohol. I began with a paleo approach and mentally felt great but didnt really lose any weight and none of my other issues improved. A few years later I moved to keto lose weight and to help control excess menstrual bleeding and try to avoid a hysterectomy. This helped immensely, I lost weight, my cycle improved, I converted my DM2. My move to carnivore was about becoming even stronger. I also noticed it is a very slippery slope to carb binges for me. I found my sugar cravings did not go away on keto and every few months I would falter. The more I ate fat and leaned towards meat, eggs, cheese as my staples, the better I felt. I drifted somewhat into carnivore by accident, but when I discovered other people doing this is gave me the validation to move to carnivore full time. I'm still losing weight and bringing down my bp (cardiologist thinks I can convert in the future), but I feel great and all of my other issues are resolved. I had long time sleep and digestive issues that had become so normal for me it was amazing to experience improvement there.

  • Acne disappeared, joints stopped popping

  • Lost weight effortlessly.

  • Steady energy now all day.

  • Since I've been fully carnivore for a month or so, most of my autoimmune symptoms have been in remission, and they just keep improving the longer I'm sticking to my 100% carnivore WOE.

  • I was attempting eat way too little on keto and while I wasn't quite dying I was definitely experiencing some serious effects of malnutrition. This philosophy changed my life for the better.

  • My hidradenitis suppurativa is gradually getting better and going away. Gout has disappeared.

  • Skin, mental clarity, mood improved, more energy, stopped snoring, better sleep, better attitude.

  • Memory improved. My mind is the sharpest its ever been.

  • My glucose levels are better, I've lost weight, and generally feel better, overall.

  • I’ve struggled with acne on my face and back since 6th grade. I just graduated high school this year and started the CD. Haven’t broken out since starting and I’ve also made an effort to get more sun. My skin is healing and I feel way more confident around other people.

  • I’ve lost 80 pounds and have less cravings

  • My nails got stronger and whiter, too early to tell other benefits yet.

  • Started with keto and felt much better - energy, brain fog, etc.

  • Eczema, blood pressure, anxiety, depression, weight, virility, muscle, etc

  • I got rid of all "odiopathic" health issue symptoms I was not able to resolve fully on keto (eczema, depression, anxiety). My Hashimotos seems to be in remission. I enjoy my life (for the first time in my life).

  • Saw an immediate improvement in digestion coming away from a higher fiber/fat keto diet. Many other smaller benefits but mostly have simply gotten used to not reacting to food.

  • Knees feel better, lean mass growing without very much exercise, blood sugar and mood stabilized, eye sight getting slightly better, able to go out in the sun for a while without burning.

  • Very good control of t1 diabetes not limited to blood sugar only.

  • I have done a meat heals story and run the Carnivore Diet Success Story series on ketogenicendurance.com

  • My acne is much better, my muscle composition is better, my head is clearer, my sleeping schedule is better. Suddenly I’m a morning person. I did this mainly for brain fog/depression. While life isn’t perfect, I feel better equipped with energy to deal with it.

  • I was diagnosed with autism 10 years ago. I no longer display symptoms or markers that were originally seen. Also true with ADD.

  • Felt better generally

  • Ulcerative colitis issies

  • My depression and digestive health improved within the first week.

  • Definitely noticed the biggest change in my mental health. If I ever cheat, the depression comes back quickly. When doing the diet, I feel great all the time.

  • Had severe constipation with the keto i was doing (plant heavy) and after all the mainstream medical advice i took and try for months (nothing worked) i go carnivore and i have fixed it in 3 days then i realised i had other gut issues that have been resolved throught the almost year i do the carnivore diet

  • Mental clarity, digestion, body composition.

  • Artists pain mostly gone, skin is vastly improved, down 75 lbs. overall feeling great!

  • My calm mood stabilized, no anxiety and felt deeply nourished as never before in my whole life. I discovered I'm very sensitive to most kind of food except meat and cause me inflammatory brain and sinus.

  • Better mood. Less cravings. Better skin. Better body composition. Improved blood work.

  • Brain health--physical and mental. Also inflamation and joint pain. Freedom from compulsive eating. Losing weight has been fantastic of course, but honestly if I had of felt this good when I was fatter, I'd of not cared about being so round!

  • My Digestion

  • Lost weight, stoped calorie counting

  • My abs really came out compared to when I was low-carb. Much improved muscle tone and growth. Better sleep. Easy meal preparation, and simpler eating at home.

  • My husbands friend told us about it and I laughed, thinking how the hell do you poop on that diet lol! Then started thinking about it and I’m super into nutrition so I did some digging. The more I read, the more fascinated I was and I originally supported my husband but then ended up being more into it than him. We both immediately lost weight but also just felt good. It was hard for us to keep up with it at first and it took about over two years for me to completely adapt to it. We did the January Carnivore month in 2018, then kinda went off for awhile, I got pregnant and still ate a bunch of meat but was scared to not eat veggies. After pregnancy, I just gravitated back to it and now I can’t see myself ever going back to the “normal standardized diet”. I just feel better all around.

  • Lost of weight loss. Better focus. Better impulse control.

  • Hunger went down significantly.

  • Crippling CostoChondritis and health anxiety dissapeared. Joints feel bulletproof. Horrible Cystic acne dissapeared and scars started lightening.

  • Moved from LC to Keto to CD. Health improved with each step. I’m as lean and fit as I was as a teenager, minus the wear and tear of age, recovery time

  • I am totally still in the beginner phase. Honestly, still feeling pretty crappy most of the time but it's only been 2 weeks. I will say my stomach pain/bloating/digestion seems to be slowly improving.

  • Lower weight, better digestive health, improvement in mental health

  • Clear thinking, much reduced fatigue and muscle pain

  • Got rid of my IBS and metabolic disease

  • I suffered from sever IBS and was taking doxycycline for around three years, and at the same time was on a low fat - high carb diet for weight loss and had an eating disorder which led to being vegetarian and eventually vegan without me realizing. Destroyed my digestive system and put myself in hospital at one point, started to develop fatty liver disease despite never drinking alcohol and for two years of my life I felt like a zombie and was medically deemed anorexic.

  • As soon as I switched to the CD after a period of gaining weight on the vegan diet (too many nuts and seeds) I felt incredible, it was like the life I had lost had been given back to me and all my brain fog and health issues disappeared. I had energy, I could think clearly, my relationship with food had been healed. My bloods were perfect, my memory improved, my strength improved, scars disappeared, acne improved (unless I eat too much butter), hunger levels decreased.

  • I could go on, but honestly, it's like I hit a reset button and everything just immediately improved. I'm just glad I discovered the CD when I was eighteen whilst I'm still in my growth period compared to others, because if I kept going with my original diet I can only imagine how unhealthy I would be at twenty-one and how that would affect me for the rest of my life. One of the biggest things though, was I got my period back, since I ended up going through early menopause at sixteen.

I’m in remission for Autoimmune Diseases Hashimoto’s MS Iots simply like a miracle! No cheat days for me! This is my lifestyle now and I love it! I never want to go back to what I was like with my health before. I have been sick my whole life. I was born missing genes from my parents and have been in land out of hospitals and doctors offices. I’m so thankful for my restored health I’ve been given!
