  1. I know that during the first 30 days you said it would be OK to continue drinking (a small amount) of coffee or tea if you are used to drinking it, what about if we drink soda pop instead? that is what we drink to get caffeine in our house

    1. I don’t recommend it, but if it helps get through the first 30 days, in which you can then slowly remove it after, then I’d go ahead and leave it in (I just wouldn’t leave it in long term).

  2. On day 3 and lost a pound. digestive stress is decreasing,too! questions. I vape at a relativly high nic level, is that ok? I use it to montior my bipolar disorder. When do you somewhat recommend i can do without my meds?

    Thanks!

    1. While I don’t recommend vaping or high nicotine intake, it may be best to see if you can slowly decrease/eliminate over time (if that makes sense with regard to the bipolar disorder). Often just being on a carnivore diet helps reduce addictions. For example, many people can’t imagine giving up coffee, however, after a couple months of carnivore diet they lose the attachment to it, and find it easier to quit the caffeine. Trying to quit an addiction like caffeine or nicotine while also making a dramatic dietary change (that often has unpleasant symptoms until adapted) can be too much. Often it’s easier to focus on one at a time.

      Regarding your meds, I would work with your doctor (obviously I can’t give medical advice here). See if it makes sense to slowly reduce as your health improves.

  3. Is it ok to drink Crystal light tea? shows 5 calories per serving. I have completely cut out soda but i started drinking crystal light more often the lemon tea flavor.

    if its not ok, do you recommend any type of water flavor that is ok for this diet? just curious.

    1. Hi Alex, I don’t recommend it or any artificial sugars/flavorings. One of the amazing benefits of this way of eating is the killing of carbohydrate/sugar addictions. And often these sweeteners can keep them alive. From a fat loss perspective they are fine, but from a long term success point of view they are something I think most people do better without.

  4. Been doing keto for 7 weeks. Just starting carnivore. My goals are:
    Energy
    Anti inflammatory (oh the pain)
    Brain fog
    Weight loss
    I’m off all sodas, I’ve substituted, stevia sweetened drinks or sugar. My understanding doesn’t spike insulin

  5. Hello! What to do, I was on the CARNIVOR for 2 months and yesterday and today my blood pressure rose from 125/85 to 162/122 I was not hypertensive and I didn’t have that at keto nutrition (7 months) and today I allowed myself to eat persimmon and pie. I do not want to throw Carnivore and what should I do to start the carnivore first?

    1. Your blood pressure could be “high” at any one time for a variety of reasons.

      I would consistently monitor over time to get a more accurate gauge.
