Why Try the Carnivore Diet?
Because vegetables taste like shit and losing weight that way is very unpleasant. Simple. Also, you don't win friends with salad.
The First Few Days: Giving Up Sugar
A completely carnivore diet (must include eggs and/or fish roe) won't have much sugar at all. This will be especially difficult for Americans because we've become addicted to all the added sugars in our processed food and the added sugars in modern domestic fruits & vegetables. When you quit eating that sweet sugar your body will crash and you'll feel like you're dying. The first few days I threw a tantrum because I was so grumpy and I wanted sugar.
After a Few Weeks: Your Body Acclimates
Eventually your body will grow accustomed to the carnivore diet. You will no longer be dependent on artificial sugars and excess carbs. Now your body has to learn to burn fat for fuel instead of sugar.
Finally: Losing Fat and Getting Buff
After 4-6 weeks your body will now naturally burn fat for fuel instead of sugar and carbs. As your energy returns you will also lose a ton of excess body fat, especially the love handles on the side of your abs. You will start to finally feel invincible.
Warnings: It's not for everybody & Vitamin C is not found in meat
A carnivore diet is not for everybody especially people who don't keep track of what vitamins their eating. Vitamin C is the only vitamin not found sufficiently in cooked animal meats. But it can be found in eggs, liver and fish roe.
Most Helpful Opinions
Love the title. Humans are neither carnivores nor herbivores if we get down to semantics. If you want to be a carnivore, you must be able to digest raw meat - humans are not designed for it. End of story.
You won't get fibers from eating only meat. That's something important for your weight-loss programme, wouldn't you say?
Giving up sugar entirely is not sensible. I take it you mean giving up added sugar. Agreed in that case.
"Your body will now naturally burn fat for fuel instead of sugar and carbs."
Only if you work out or use that energy somehow. The body acclimatises to your life style. If you don't take up more resource-heavy tasks, then you won't lose weight as much as you would want.
Humans can't digest raw meat? Have you ever eaten sushi?
Have you ever hunted a wild animal, pierced its neck, dragged the side open and feasted on that raw deliciousness? Didn't think so :) Read the sentence again, I didn't say we can't digest raw meat ;)
No, I hunted a deer with a gun and gutted it like a man. I've done the same when fishing. I also season it.
