Should You Try the Carnivore Diet? What 74 Studies Say

If you want to know what the carnivore diet is, why people follow it, and how it affects your body, you want to listen to this podcast.

What if I told you that by eating nothing but meat and other animal products—no fruits, vegetables, or plant foods of any kind—you could . . .

  • Lose fat without counting calories
  • Bulletproof yourself against and even cure diabetes
  • Prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes
  • Increase your testosterone levels, build more muscle, and improve your athletic performance


You may also be able to resolve digestive problems like bloating, gas, and constipation and overcome depression, fatigue, joint pain, and other maladies.

Well, according to a growing number of self-styled health and diet gurus, that’s exactly what happens when you follow the “carnivore diet,” which involves eating only animal products (along with water and salt).

If you poke around online and read people’s experiences with the carnivore diet, you’ll find some compelling success stories.

Men and women of all ages and circumstances are saying that it has cured their arthritis, stomach bloating, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, brain fog, depression, and alcohol and nicotine addictions, as well as helped them build muscle, lose fat, and look and feel healthier than ever before.

On the other hand, there are decades of research showing that eating fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is healthy, and some evidence that suggests eating high amounts of animal products increases the risk of disease and dysfunction.

Which position has the weight of the evidence on its side?

Well, the short answer is that while it’s possible to be healthy on the carnivore diet (at least for a while), there’s an overwhelming amount of scientific research showing that it’s far from optimal and that there are much better options.

And in this podcast, you’re going to get the whole story, including . . .

  • What the carnivore diet is
  • Why people follow it
  • What the benefits and downsides are
  • How safe it is

. . . and more.
