Carnivore Diet - Good or Bad?
A carnivore diet, or a meat only diet, has received both praise and heavy criticism. On one hand, reducing carb and increasing protein intake is healthy. But, on the other hand, the carnivore diet seems ripe for nutritional deficiencies. So, is it good or bad?
In all, the carnivore is incomplete and not for everyone. Why? The diet doesn't prioritize:
nutrient timing, balance, or quality. By cutting out many foods, it’s also a diet best reserved for those with autoimmune and/or GI issues, not for healthy people looking to optimize their life.
Before you take the leap to a carnivore diet for optimal health, try first:
1. Cutting down on processed sugar, carbs, and unhealthy fats, oils.
2. Increasing your protein intake
3. Consuming more colorful nutrient rich vegetables.
If you want to try the carnivore diet:
1. Get confirmation this diet is right for you.
2. Make it a priority to buy only top quality, organic, grass fed meats.
3. Don’t forget to eat the animal’s organs, too; they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients!
