Carnivore Diet – Report #1

IMG_20180813_154548I’ve tried Paleo, Keto, Atkins, 4 Hour Body.  They all eventually fail for one reason.  Too hard, too much work, I’m still hungry.  I came across a Joe Rogan podcast with Dr. Shawn Baker  (the first hour is great, the rest not so much) and the Carnivore Diet.  Basically you eat Meat, maybe a little cheese, and drink water.  That’s it.  No counting Macros.  No counting calories.  No checking some magic list of acceptable vegetables.  Basically, if it comes from a animal and doesn’t have added ingredients, your good to go.  Eat as much meat as you want.  So I started last Monday 8/13/2008.  I didn’t take exact measurements for everything, which is turning out to be better for me personally because I’m not constantly checking everyday “what changed” as I’ve done in the past.

Weight

I started at 250 pounds and I’m now down to 235 pounds.  Holy Shit, 15 lbs in 8 days!  To be perfectly fair, I’ve had this kind of weight loss on Atkins / 4 Hour Body before.  The week prior I ate / drank as bad as I’ve ever done before., and almost no workouts. I probably gained 5+ lbs.

Score: A+

Things I’m Eating

  • Ribeye Steaks
  • Flank Steaks
  • Eggs
  • Cheese Blocks
  • Summer Sausages
  • Spicy Italian Sausages
  • Bacon
  • A little lunch meat
  • A little fish
  • Coffee
  • Water
  • 1 zero calorie energy drink during workout (Rockstar)

I’m at the point I can eat 2 meals with a small snack and not think about food.  It’s liberating.

Score: A+ (I’ve always loved meat)

Workouts

I try to do 3 -5 days a week of lifting.  I usually pick two muscle groups and lift for 45 – 60 minutes.  At first my workouts SUCKED.  Not that I was tired just couldn’t lift normal weight amounts.  I’ve added back in my zero calorie energy drink (Rockstar) and I seem to be back to normal.

Score: C

Sleep

Normal to better.  I’m drinking so much more water now and at first I had to use the restroom so much more.  That has leveled off.

Score: C

Feelings

I read all the people saying how much better they feel on this lifestyle.  I had my doubts.  I feel amazing.  I’m mostly not hungry.  I feel like I have lots of energy.  My mind feels sharp.

I went thru a brief period of a dull headache early on.  I could feel the lack of euphoria from eating carbs and sugar.  That lasted 2/3 days.  I’ve experienced that before.  After getting over that hump, I feel so much more balanced.

Score: A+

Cravings

I had one bad day – day 6.  I knew it was going to be a bad day early on.  I have no idea why.  I ended up eating more meat that day as a result I think but never broke.. I did have a diet coke on day 8.  I just wanted one, it was kind of random. The rest of the days I have not been an issue at all.

Score: B

Going to Kentucky Lake this weekend, going to give RoadTrippers a shot.  To disclose I have several former colleague and friends who work there.  I gave them a half hearted shot when they very first started but quickly gave up.  This should be a true test / review.  I’ll be brutally honest, good or bad as I see it from a usability/reliability/experience.
