  1. Hello,
    I am 3 months into the carnivore way of eating and initially lost 15 lbs. in 6 weeks. After cutting everything but beef and water a month ago I have lost an additional 8 lbs. For the last 2 weeks I’ve lost nothing. I am eating to fullness on ribeyes which right now is about 1 1/2 pounds a day and have improved my energy and inflammation. I am currently 100 lbs overweight and nowhere near a normal weight. Please help me understand what is happening.

  2. Hi Dr. Stock. My husband and I have been on pretty strict Keto & IF for 103 days. He has lost 12 of the 15lbs he wanted to lose (but still wants to build muscle) & I have lost close to 40lbs (&40inches) with much more to lose.
    We are seriously considering converting over to the carnivore diet for a trial run of 30 days.(& will decide at that point whether to go to the next level or not). I read your guide, but have a couple of questions please. We are coffee drinkers & though from what we’ve read that butter (&HWC) is acceptable…is stevia & monk fruit ok in coffee or are they considered plants? Is it imperative to give up all dairy (with the exception of butter which we have heard it is not considered the same as dairy with milk sugar) for better results? And lastly…have you ever heard of ‘nodules’ on finger joints disappearing after adhering to a strict carnivore diet? Thank you so much in advance!

    1. Hi Gabri, there are a lot of questions here, but my biggest recommendation is to read the fat loss pdf: https://www.kevinstock.io/how-to-lose-fat-on-the-carnivore-diet/ (for your explanation it sounds like you should focus on “Phase 1”)

      Stevia and monk fruit can have some issues – perhaps the biggest is keeping carb/sugar cravings alive – but once these addictions are beat, small amounts usually aren’t a big problem for some people (while others they can be a “gateway drug”)

      As the guide recommends – giving up dairy for a time is a smart strategy but it’s not something that has to be done right off the bat.

  3. Hi Dr.Stock,

    I am on a day 3rd of strict carnivore diet – the reason: suffering from insomnia, depression, anxiety…
    I will keep you informed…

  4. Dr. Kevin
    I have been researching the carnivore diet for a while now and really want to take the full plunge, however with my history I need more information before I start.

    I am childhood cancer survivor (from the mid 80’s) of which I spent 2 1/2 in/out of the hospital, which during this time my protocol was changed 3 times. Ever since I have been very gassy and have been told that is something I will have to live with for the rest of my life. The older I get the worse my stomach issues get. I was dianosed with C-PTSD when I was 28 years old and a year later was dianosed with IBS-D. A the age of 35, I had at the same exact time a partial hysterectomy and my gall bladder removed (I got a B1G1 surgery free kinda deal).

    I have the following concerns/questions answered before jumping into the proverbial deep in. 1) I am concerned if ever I would adapt without a gallbladder. 2) If so approximately how long should the adaptation period take? 3) Will the help with my depression/anxiety that is associated with PTSD?

    I have been living with these issues for so long and hope that once adapted I would feel better than ever. Any insight that you may have would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Many people do just great without a gallbladder (some adaptation supplements can help potentially too).
      Many people have vastly improved depression/anxiety associated with PTSD too.

  5. Hi Dr. Stock, I have just started eating carnivore (3 days in) and I notice I have very low energy and seem to get winded fairly quickly. I’m trying to combat/reverse type 2 diabetes, and lose weight. At present I am 6′ tall, 260lbs. I was diagnosed in early 2018, and have been trying to control it with diet. I’m trying to eat a good amount of fat. Up until this point I have been eating fairly low carb, but I have been eating vegetables, fruit and pumpernickle bread. Is this low energy normal as my body adapts?

    1. Hi John, I see this comment is under the “30 Day Guide” download – have you ready it? As all of these questions are answered there.

  6. Hi Kevin,
    I’m skinny fat (between 15%-20% body fat) and I want to start the carnivore diet. How can I build muscle while losing fat?

    Also, other doctors like Paul Saladino recommend consuming liver, omega 3s, and collagen to balance out the muscle meat. Is this good?

  7. I have been doing carnivore for about 2 weeks now, is it normal to notice some bloating and gas (lots of belching), or am i doing something wrong? Im about 195 lbs and eat about a pound of beef a day or sometime more sometimes less depending on appetite, if that information helps at all, Im coming from a keto diet, also im ketones have been low since starting, but i keep reading not to worry about that anymore. I just printed your carnivore guide but any advice would be appreciated.

    1. Hi JJ, sorry for the issues, sometimes this happens with certain browsers/adblockers – if you try another browser that usually does the trick, but if not, I’d be more than happy to email it to you.

  8. Hi there,

    could you please send me the 30-day Guide? Thanks in advance 🙂
