Carnivore Diet: Eat More Meat, Mostly Beef


The carnivore way of eating has enormous health benefits for many people. It’s not appropriate to call the carnivore diet a “diet” because the word diet implies that it’s a temporary event. Nobody is searching Google for “carnivore way of eating,” they’re all searching for “carnivore diet.” And sometimes “cavemen diet” or “meat diet.” So here we are. I’m glad you found this post.

Anyone who has embraced this way of eating can tell you there will probably be some social challenges along the way. As it turns out, there are plenty of overweight and unhealthy people LOVE to give advice about diet and nutrition. They’re not being malicious, they simply don’t know what they don’t know.

Every one of us had our “first day” hearing about the carnivore diet / way of eating and I have found it useful to assume most people in the world simply haven’t had their first day yet.

I have the link to this page saved in my Notes app in my phone so I can copy/paste it into a text message or email when I find someone who would like to be educated. It’s a great time-saver for me, so give it a try if you find yourself talking about your food choices on a regular basis.

This is a living page and I’ll continue to add links to carnivore diet articles and related topics as I discover them. I have done my best to organize the links in a coherent format with subjects and headings that should make sense. When in doubt, use the Search bar in the lower right corner of this web page to search for keywords. If you have something to add, please post it in the comments.

Plants have evolved to protect themselves. This one is close to home for me because I discovered a few years ago that I have serious issues with leafy green vegetables. I love them, but they don’t love me back! They are harmful for MANY people, yet most don’t know it because they’ve never gone a significant amount of time without eating plants. How would you know it’s possible to feel better without eating plants if you’ve never tried to live without them? How do babies thrive on breast milk when breast milk doesn’t contain plants or fiber? Also, plants could make you lose your mind (seriously).

Plants contain lectins and lectins are bad news.
