    Thanks for the response. Ya I’ve had digestive issues for years so I was hoping this might help sort it out.
    I do 3 eggs and some ham for breakfast with a glass of water.
    Lunch is usually 500 grams of mince or steak. I prepare the steak with a small amount of olive oil, a big of cracked pepper and Himalayan salt.
    Dinner is a variation of mince and steaks.
    I only drink water at the moment. About 1.5-2 litres a day.
    I’ll have a black coffee in the morning and snack on some beef Jerkey around 11.
    Occasionally I’ll do a bit of haloumi cheese with dinner

    Just to remind people: the carnivore diet can easily be deficient in many micronutrients, as well as have other potential problems. If you're going to do it, I suggest getting your micronutrients and lipids tested.

    As an example I've logged 2467 kcal worth of chicken, beef and salmon, with appropriate fat content and some organ meat included for extra micronutrients.

    Here's what came out:



    Easy to spot the potential problems: deficient in folate, vitamin A, C, K, calcium and manganese.

    Excessive dietary cholesterol can increase LDL cholesterol. Not necessarily a problem for everyone but that's why it's a good idea to get lipids checked.

    Taking a multi would help a little, but absorption and availability of supplemental vitamins often falls short. Studies show getting your micronutrients from whole foods tends to be superior. And besides that, most multi's lack sufficient calcium, vitamin K1 and K2.

    And I haven't touched upon further health benefits of fruit and vegetables, such as their phytonutrient and fiber contents for example.

    ps. I'm not saying this applies to OP. It's just a reminder for people who are considering this type of diet.

    ^^^^^ to add, not a single gram of fiber. During #2, I have to push hard AF on days I only get 10-20g fiber, nevermind none. Not seeing how you carnivore guys are doing it. Also had a GI doc tell me that high protein diet with insufficient fiber intake can lead to GI problems (forget the condition).

    Follow-up

    I am currently keto and am working on transitioning to keto. I wanted to follow up on how this worked out for you. I currently teach group fitness classes but I'm going to start working on truly bodybuilding which is new for me. Anything I should be aware of going in?

    If youre already keto im confident it'll be fine. Keep on top of your salts; magnesium, potassium but mostly sodium.

    My question is

    ...Have you killed anything yet?
    I have a good joke about water retention. But I'm going to hold onto it for now.

    the vitamin and mineral calculators are not accurate.

    Vitamin A has different forms: Retinol (animal) and beta carotene (plant).
    Depending on your conversation ratio, Retinol is 5-20x more potent than beta carotene so 10% DV Vitamin A from retinol = 100% from Beta Carotene.
    Many plant foods have anti-nutrients that decrease the absorption of minerals. https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutriti...nti-nutrients/

    Cholesterol causing heart attacks is a myth. High amounts of polyunsaturated fats + high blood sugar that causes heart attacks. Cholesterol is an important nutrient that heals the body, only when it gets oxidized does it clog the arteries and that usually happens from polyunsaturated fats + high blood sugar.

    Actually, it IS accurate... cronometer does not break it out because it assumes it is retinol.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    okay retinal will be accurate with that calculator but the other numbers are still not necessarily accurate.

    1) those calculators don't take into consideration anti nutrients that block mineral absorption, e.g. oxalates blind to calcium and prevent it from being absorbed. So getting calcium from sardines is not the same as a high oxalate plant source like broccoli.
    2) the actual DV% are not necessarily correct. 100mg of Vitamin C is stated as the requirement each day but the body only need 10mg to avoid scurvy. Many recommendations are questionable.
