Veganism and plant-based living might having a moment, there’s another
diet making headlines. It’s the carnivore diet. Yep, that means eating
nothing but eggs, meat and fish for every single meal! Apparently, people who
follow this diet feel more mentally clear, energised and fit. Would you ever
give this extreme diet a go? Does meat for every meal sound good to you
No I am not into these diet fads whether to be vegan or not etc. I eat
everything in moderation. These diets are often offered up by no professionals
who have no idea about what is healthy or not just their view point. If it
works for you ...............
I would try a modified version of it but only grass-fed meat. There are two
reasons for this.
REASON ONE: I experienced diverticulitis earlier this year and needed surgery.
Raffinose triggers my diverticulitis and causes excruciating pain. Don't know
what Raffinose is?
Raffinose is a sugar digested in the large intestines by bacteria (it results in
gas). If someone is already bloated (which happens when you have
diverticulitis), it can aggravate the symptoms. Foods to AVOID include broccoli,
kale, cabbage, beans, turnips, arugula, cauliflower, bell peppers, sweet
potatoes, and Brussels sprouts.
Fiber-rich foods you might want to limit or AVOID, especially during a flare up,
include: beans and legumes such as navy beans, chickpeas, lentils, and kidney
beans whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, oats, amaranth, spelt, and
REASON TWO: Plants have evolved to protect themselves from animals and that
includes us (the human species). Think of a pineapple. All those sharp thorns
are to deter YOU from eating it's fruit. Other plants have evolved different
harmful defense mechanisms to stop you eating them. Lectins are one of these
Dr Steven Gundry (cardiologist) explains which common foods contain lectins,
whole wheat flour, cashews, legumes, eggplant, corn, brown rice, tomatoes, and
sunflower seeds. These are the main ones he advises to avoid:
1. Tomatoes: Any of the nightshade vegetables are full of lectins. To reduce the
amount in tomatoes, peel the skin and remove the seeds before eating. 2. Whole
grain breads: If you must have bread, it’s BETTER to eat white bread than
whole grain, seed, or wheat germ breads. 3. Beans: Make sure to pressure-cook
them to eliminate much of the lectin content. Avoid canned or processed beans,
such as a store-bought bean dip. 4. Cashews: Cashews are not nuts at all but
seeds. We are not meant to eat seeds of any kind. Instead, eat ¼ cup of pecans,
walnuts, or macadamia nuts a day.
NOTE: the Plant Paradox diet diet is not 100% suitable for patients with
diverticulitis. This is why I would consider a modified version of the carnivore
diet, adapted to remove any foods I know will trigger an attack.
I enjoy meat, but not for every meal. Love fish and eggs too, but not for every
meal. Like to have my cereal for breakfast and lots of vegetables for dinner.
I like variety. Meat every meal sounds a bit unhealthy, but I am no expert on
I WON'T TRY. I'm a carnivore all my life. My favourite kind of vegetable salad
is bacon & beer. However, even dogs occasionally eat grass to help digestion. I
of course like bread, fruits, cakes, ... I need soak all that fat and juice into
something. I listen to wishes of my body and sometimes spoil it. We are both (me
and my body) happy without all extremes keeping stupidity far away. I was 11
years on "diet" as a concentration camp prisoner. I suffered severe muscle
atrophy. Authority "frau Mengele" (camp chief surgeon) said I was fine. I wish
all enjoy yourself and taste everything in moderation.
Have signed a Pro Pig Pledge nearly ten years ago so no longer eating any pork
or poultry this "new" carnivore diet does not appeal in any way to me. I'll
stick to eating mainly plant based foods and just pat the animals thanks.
I think I could handle meat and eggs, but am allergic to fish so that would be
out for me anyway.
I don't follow any particular diet just eat what I feel like at the time which
is either meat and vegetables or chicken and vegetables and sometimes will end
up having bacon and eggs for dinner because it is quick and easy to cook.
That sounds like a recipe for an early death. The World Health Organisation has
classified processed meats as a Group 1 carcinogen, meaning that there is very
strong evidence that processed meats causes cancer. It is in the same category
as asbestos, arsenic, plutonium and tobacco. In addition, red meat is also
classified as a probable cause of cancer. They're playing Russian roulette with
their health and it's only a matter of time before they will end up with heart
disease and a myriad of other health issues.
When I was young and stupid, I was on the Atkins Diet, which is this one plus
dairy products. I felt great and lost weight, but after 2 years on it I got
very sick from the nutritional deficiencies it caused. My teeth got loose, I
was shaky and my hair started falling out. When I started eating normally, I
recovered. Now I eat mainly vegetarian but can't resist occasional meat -- when
I can afford it.The Carnivore Diet sounds like a desperate advertising campaign
from the meat industry!
You could say that I have been a carnivore all my life and in my 70's continue
to do so.. Growing up it was all fresher and straight from the farm. Today with
all the preservatives in food I am a believer of fresh is best.
In this day and age, seriously? The amount of harm it does to animals and the
environment, this is outrageous. People can be so blind, so uncompassionate. I
havent eaten meat for a very long time and Im extremely healthy.
In a world where meat eating is increasing, where vegetarians are in the
minority and vegans are a far smaller minority this claim could use a bit of
The figures to support your claim are based on world population, health reports
by country or just personal observation of family and friends?
Not possible to get all the micro nutrients and minerals you need, you will end
up very sick in time. Have you seen a doctor to check your cholesterol levels
and blood pressure? You will also end up with bowel issues because there is zero
fiber in meat.
Maybe a meat based diet can be good to loss weight but a bit of vegetable and
fruit on alternate days would suit me better as I love all food and we should
not restrict our diet just to one king of products. Each has nutrition our
bodies need to function properly.
No way, I have not put meat in my mouth for over 35 years! I think those on this
diet are lying, You cannot live long without fresh fruit and veggies, they will
die from a heart attack but we won't hear about it because their social media
accounts will no longer be active. Even cave man ate berries, fruits, seeds, and
tubers because they know they needed micro nutrients. Even the Keto diet is
dangerous. A balanced plant based diet has been proven time and time again to
get people healthy and energetic, even the fastest and strongest athletes are
Hi Music Veg....keto is all about vegetables, nuts, seeds, certain fruits,
youghurts, goid oils and no sugar. Small amounts of protein. Im not always
clean but i fast enough so my body hes all the bad fats. Healthy liver. Checked
by doctor regularly
Yes Keto is better than some diets, but without wholefood carbs it takes a lot
of energy from your body to make energy from meat and fats. Fat and protein make
cancer cells grow in a lab but not plant proteins. Oil is not good for the liver
either. But if you are eating more fruit and vegetables than anything else you
are half way there.
If God didn't intend for us to eat meat he wouldn't have made animals of it.
I love my meat, both Red and White and eat it for the majority of my meals.
However I also eat vegetables and salads.
A balanced diet is a proper diet.
I'd hate to be a vegan and look as thin and sickly as all the ones I know do,
plus they all smell odd for some reason.
