Carnivore, 1 Month Recap: Not Turning Back.

First Month Carnivore: Not Turning Back! While sugar made me hungry for more sugar, fat puts a quick stop to hunger—without the lethargy that comes with a carb-heavy or sugar-laden meal. That is what has made this way of eating sustainable for me.

Carnivore, Week 4

Status: Rounding the Bend. I can't believe I've made it four weeks eating nothing but protein and fat! Guys, for anyone curious about giving carnivore a shot, go for it. This was by far the easiest 'diet' I've ever tried. It was a little rough in the beginning but I am rounding the bend now. …

Carnivore, Week 3

Status: It Was the Eggs! I'd never considered that eggs would bother me. Every year when I get my 'mandatory' flu shot, the survey asks if I'm allergic to eggs. I've always responded, "No." Now though, I'm not so sure. When I say I was uncomfortable, I mean incredibly uncomfortable. I was nearly unable to …

Carnivore, Day 14

Status: Totally Unpredictable! This carnivore journey has been crazy unpredictable! I do not remember the gamut of experiences this time around from the first time I gave it a shot.

Carnivore, Day 12

Status: All's well that ends well. Yesterday started rough but ended well. Friday evening we went out to eat and I had naked chicken wings in butter. It hit me in the midst of eating them that they were probably fried in vegetable or soybean oil before being tossed in butter. Friday night into Saturday …

Carnivore, Day 11

Status: The Word is Out! So far I've been pretty quiet about my choice to eat only meat, but it all came out at work yesterday! I took three hardboiled eggs with me to work. I have a standing desk at work, and it was a bit too high for me to comfortably stand at. …

Carnivore, Day 10

Status: Not Missing much. Yesterday was a repeat of my breakthrough from the day prior. I felt so much better. I think a big part of my positive vibe was that I couldn't have cared less about monitoring what I was eating. It was so freeing not to worry about entering meals or considering my …

Carnivore, Day 9

Status: What Hump? If there was a hump, I'M OVER IT BABY!!! I feel so great, I can barely contain myself. Stepping on the scale yesterday morning was a pleasant surprise. I decided to say, "To heck with tracking how much I eat," and I think it paid off. Yesterday was awesome! I ate a …
