How to Transform Your Body and Health with a Meat-based Diet


  1. Hi Dr. Kevin,

    I have been on Keto for almost 3 years and I love the lifestyle. I have been doing IF/OMAD and fasting for about 7-8 months now. I work out regularly about 4-5 times a week. Mostly weights and some HIIT.

    However, recently I’ve hit a plateau and want to lose my last 15 pounds. Due to some reading and research about proper macros….I discovered the Carnivore lifestyle. This was about 2 days ago. Because of everything I’ve read and listened to, I am prepared to go Carnivore all the way up to the 3rd level for the rest of my life….I just turned 60.

    Of course, I’m still learning, so I still have sooo many questions!

    I hope you don’t mind me asking a couple of what may be very basic questions.

    I want to get in as much protein as I can with out overdoing the fat. Can I eat canned tuna and canned Salmon with home made mayo?

    Can I eat canned sardines(in tomato sauce)if I only eat the sardines and not the sauce?

    Thanks in advance for your time and answers.


    Oh yeah…..I’ve already joined your FB group!👍

    1. When you say “can I…” it’s very unclear what you are asking – of course you “can” – but “is it the best option for you” = that’s a completely different question – one in which if you read all the guides on this website – I think you’ll have a better answer.

  2. Hi,
    I have been doing the carnivore experiment for 18 days today. I wanted to know, what your thoughts are on eating fatty cuts of meat and fewling nauseous/vomiting ? Just recently I have has pork belly and beef ribs and both times I started feeling nauseous then vomited. I felt 100% after it but I think ita something my body can’t handle or dp I keep persistent.

    1. It’s not uncommon early on, but it’s also why I outlined the 30 day guide (you can download it on this website) with 3 Levels to determine if there are specific foods that are giving you trouble.

  3. Hi,

    In the meat eating guide you’re stating that athletic performance is 1-6 month to reach the same or higher level as before the diet.

    I would like to know what is the basis of this statement.

    Good day!

  4. Hi everybody,

    I am Angelo from the Netherlands.

    After 2 months of reading and preparing (especially the 30 day guide of this site), I started this diet on 1 April.

    due to a hernia and a shoulder dislocation that followed in quick succession, my weight has increased enormously and I have always had problems with the back and shoulder.

    Today is day 6. So far I have fully complied with the guidelines of only animal products.

    I am very surprised that I have no back or shoulder complaints since 3 days. perhaps that is a placebo effect, but it is very coincidental. also an eczema spot on my stomach has disappeared like snow in the sun.

    And now the difficult part of this diet. my need for sugar is enormous. I was really down a few days during the day.
    I have great difficulty with soft drinks. Until last week I drank an average of 1.5 liters of soft drinks per day (coca cola).
    I can control myself so far, but I still get a voice in the back of my head, well take a small glass, that’s not a problem.
    last night i had to take a big cup of tea (without sugar, honey or sweetener), to be able to drink something other than water.

    Does this urge for soda go away? I have no problem with the bad sugar / carbohydrate food. but the soda pfffff.

    oh almost forgot. had fully prepared me for many visits to the toilet, but has not had any problems so far. take extra supplements as recommended.
    – vitamin / mineral complex
    – Fish oil
    – enzymes for the abdomen.

    Tips and recommendations are very welcome.

    1. Sugar cravings like this are very typical, especially coming off a diet with so much sugar. I would anticipate this being a challenge for a least another couple weeks.
      My best piece of advice is to keep eating until satisfied, and when the cravings come, treat yourself to your favorite meats instead.
      The cravings can and will go away, but it does tend to take some willpower. Good luck!

  5. Hey! I live in Toronto, Canada and am about to start the carnivore diet. Any tips / knowledge / resources on how and where to best get my meat in this area of Canada?
    I’m open to meat delivery companies, but they all seem to be really expensive. is that just because the quality of meat is better? or is there somewhere else you suggest i could get a LOT of good quality meats for the same price.

    thanks a lot!

    1. Yes delivery does tend to be more expensive (often because of the shipping logistics).
      For the a lot of the best quality, I think the best solution is finding a local farmer – this is a good place to look: http://eatwild.com/

  6. Hey Dr. Kevin, love the site.

    I’ve recently started my transition to carnivore, but am having a lot of problems in the bathroom despite taking your recommended digestive enzyme supplements. I’ve been a long time sufferer of postprandial diarrhea (IBS related) where pretty much any food sends me to the bathroom roughly 10-15 minutes after eating.

    Would you recommend I stick with the carnivore plan?

  7. Good Morning!

    I hate to even ask this question because you have answered it many times BUT, it isn’t easy when a woman is dealing with weight loss resistance.

    I am 35, and I have been trying to lose weight my entire life. YO-YO dieting queen. I start something, I lose a few pounds THEN I either stop losing OR the plan is leaving me insanely hungry and I snap and binge my face off, sound familiar?

    I am currently seeing a Functional Med Doctor that has placed me on Armour Thyroid, after finding my T3 levels off. 1 grain to start and I have been on it 1 month.

    I started Carnivore for a 2nd attempt Dec 26th after abusing myself with food on Christmas. The first attempt was last spring. I did great was losing but not until I started manipulating ( 3-2 meals, Trying to intermittent fast-which I hate) I ended up cheating due to a social event and could not stop eating carbs to the point that I gained all my weight back in a second)

    I feel great eating this way- my mood is so much better, my energy needs some work but my mood is better! I started at 163, I lost great the first week ( I get it-glycogen stores) got down to 157, now I am slowly gaining again at 160) This makes me want to quit. I can not go another summer being overweight, it ruins life being uncomfortable in your own skin, I am sure you understand what I am saying… END RANT.

    Am I just weak? Why can’t I get this right… Please help.

  8. Hi Kevin I love your site and the FB group! I have been carnivore for 3mos. I started due to digestive disorders (gerd and ibs ileoostomy). It worked! I eat fatty meats and dairy making sure to stay at a 2:1 ratio. Problem is severe weight loss absent other underlying medical issues (I am under a doctor’s care because I have an I tend to lose a lot of liquid from my bag so I get regular labs for electrolytes and all is good there).
    I started out at 95 lbs I am 5 ft. This last week I went from 87lb to 82. I am guessing I don’t eat enough? A typical breakfast is about 5 oz of liver 2 eggs w cheese and sour cream and 3 split marrow bones. I aim for 3 meals a day. Physically I not sure I can eat more I do eat to satiety.
    Any guidance would be helpful.

    1. Thanks Maria, and of course I’d recommend working with your doctor, but people often lose weight early (partially water weight and partially because meat does tend to be quite filling and they have a hard time eating enough).

      If I were you, I’d probably focus on upping the fat as it is more calorically dense and you should be able to consume a greater quantity of total calories per day.

  9. Hey Kevin in 6 days into the Carnivore diet. Been definitely having some adjustment symptoms like frequent bathroom trips. I also started noticing after I eat I end up with a pain in my middle right side of my back closer to my spine. I’ve had this in the past and had numerous tests done but all they could say was acid reversing in my biliary ducts. It’s quite uncomfortable. I do take a digestive enzyme that seems to help but not always. Just wondering if this will go away because I dont want to stop the diet. Ibe seem drastic improvements in other symptoms related to autoimmune.

    1. Inadequate stomach acid can cause some real indigestion pain.
      Betaine HCL can help as the stomach adapts, and for most people it’s just takes some time for the stomach to re-adapt to its healthy acidic state.

  10. Wonderful! Thank you again for taking the time to reply.
