Thinking of Going Carnivore?


If you are a keto or paleo enthusiast there is a good chance you have heard of the carnivore diet. Check out my previous blog post: The Carnivore Diet: Is The Zero Carb Diet Really Safe?


Tips for transitioning to a carnivore diet from a keto template

  1. Get fat adapted

  2. Start with a commitment for at least 28 -30 days; I started with a 7 day commitment but found it easy to go beyond the 7 days

  3. Add a variety of animal products beef, poultry, fish, eggs, pork, bison, lamb, organ meats, grass fed ghee, grass fed butter, bone broth (proceed with caution with eggs and pork; eating sustainably raised)

  4. Avoid dairy products to help heal your gut, balance your hormones and improve respiratory system; you can add in after 2 weeks to see how you feel, however it’s best to avoid all together

  5. Add Himalayan sea salt to foods or Redmond Sea salt

  6. Drink plenty of water

  7. Plan simple meals a burger, steak, scrabbled eggs with chicken sausage, pork chops, meat loaf

  8. Know this is only a temporary template for a specific purpose (heal gut, improved mental clarity, mood stability, skin issues, autoimmune conditions)

  9. Other non carnivore foods that I added after a couple of weeks (my bullet proof coffee with MCT oil), primal kitchen mayo and occasional avocado oil

  10. Start with 3 meals a day and have some rib eye daily if you can for the first week to help you feel satiated and add grass fed butter to it; you will probably decrease to 2 meals a day but I focused on 3 meal per day

  11. Don’t worry about counting calories, just make sure you are eating a portion of protein and practice mindful eating

  12. Include organ meats the most easy is liver and 4-6 ounces per week

  13. Eat until you are satisfied but not stuffed

  14. Supplements that are helpful available on our dispensary (Carnivore Diet Category):

  • HCL and enzymes

  • Probiotic

  • Liver capsules (if not consuming organ meats)

  • Thyroid support

  • Minerals

  • Adaptogenic herbs

  • If you have stools that float lipase and ox bile can be helpful, ox bile especially if you’ve had your gall bladder removed
