    Hello all,

    In the beginning of 2019 I am planning on trying a carnivore diet, or something similar to it, for 30 days. My aim is to see if my gut can heal and feel better. After 30 days I will start introducing new foods to see what I am sensitive to. I don't want to lose weight by doing this, as my weight is fine.

    Recently I've read about carnivore diet that has gotten a lot of popularity, probably thanks to Jordan Peterson. He and his daughter got free from their auto-immune sickness thanks to this diet - so I will try it out too.

    My question is if anyone has tried this type of diet before? It would be interesting to hear experiences.

    When I was single, I lived strictly on beer and meat. Pretty close to carnivore diet. You'll be eating mostly high fat red meat, as you'll need the fat for an energy source. By doing this kind of diet, you're going to lose weight, unless you're able to eat a TON of meat to offset what your body needs from day to day. Cook everything in a ton of fat. I wish you luck in your journey, and now want a good ribeye (who cares if it's 9am)

    I just started a PALEO diet, it's called the caveman diet. Basically you only eat what a caveman would be able to eat.... Lots of meat, veg, fruit, nuts, eggs, some oils etc.

    Cutting out all processed foods, grains, sugars etc. Lots of red and fatty meat.

    I'm 4 days in and already swear I feel more alert and awake in general. Hoping for gut and mental improvements.

    Have a read about it. There is a relatively small list of things you are allowed to eat so it makes shopping very easy.

    I do keto off and on. Carnivore from my understanding is keto minus the vegetables. If you can handle not having much fiber then I'm sure it could be a good bet in the short term. I'd love a case study into how this works for IBS and related issues.

    I'm planning on going as keto as possible in 2019, and utilize OMAD/a 23:1 IF protocol. Of course, i've got about 40 pounds I could stand to lose. From everything I've read, high fat/minimal carb plus IF is incredible for fat loss with muscle retention.

    Here is an insane resource: https://tim.blog/2018/06/05/the-tim...om-dagostino-the-power-of-the-ketogenic-diet/

    @Sherb I'm (aside from about 2 weeks this holiday) around 9 months keto. I've lost 40lbs. Go hard with the carbmanager, then after the first month, you'll get used to your portions, and what you can/cant eat. It's then just a game of origami, how to make something new, with the same type of ingredients. Keto is easy as fuck, and I've never felt healthier. (post military, ofc)

    Wow! Keto diet! Yeah, I've heard of friends and relatives doing it and they lost tremendous amount of weight. Their cholesterol and glucose levels improved too, which is kinda mindblowing as you would expect it to worsen especially since they are on an all-meat and high-fat meals!

    I never did the keto diet though. Because I've read about how too much of animal meat can hamper your gut bacteria and increase your likelihood of colon cancer, and that worries me. But I must point out that all these reports aren't fully proven yet (so don't worry about it). Also, we can't blame an all-meat diet as the source of colon cancer as there are many other factors that could play a role - GMOs, growth hormones used in livestocks, one's lifestyle (smokes, alcohol intake, exercise, .etc), and so on.

    The only diet I've tried and can vouch for is intermittent fasting, in particular, the 5:2 diet. You just need to fast twice a week. And on these fasting days, you must limit your calorie intake to 400-500 calories. It is relatively easy to follow as all you need to do is skip a day's dinner and the next day's breakfast, and you're all set. Scientists and scientific studies have shown that when you fast, your body 'recycles' damaged cells to create new cells as your body is having limited energy resources to make them, therefore, it is believed to slow down aging, repair your body, lower your incidence for cancer, and so on. To those who are reading this, you may still want to do your own research though as it is not for everyone. I am planning to try an all-vegan diet as I restart my intermittent fasting again next year with this twist - hooray 2019! Happy New Year in advance!

    I'm telling you a very important thing here. Read and understand it very carefully for your own good in long-term life.

    Most important thing : You shouldn't do what we call diets if you can't do it for your whole life. If you want to change yourself, it should be a lifetime change instead of a short term.

    The reason for that is you will become what you were the day you started the diet if its a short term. A life change shouldn't be a month or a year. It should be your whole life.

    I don't care what "diet" you do. Be it cave man, fasting, keto ect, do it for your whole life else you fail. Don't do those juice diets for a lifetime unless you wanna die due to lack of fiber.

    Red meat, eggs, broth, fish, bacon and so on.

    I have IBS, which is the reason to why I will try this out. I've tried medication, taking out gluten, lactose, sugar and eating more veggies. Nothing cured it fully.

    And I am not one of those hipsters that brag about having ADHD, IBS and all the other letter combinations.

    This is true, but don't you think the act of doing a strict diet for a period of time allows you to be more open to the idea of diet choices in the long term, just because i'm doing the paleo (caveman) diet now, I won't do it for my whole life, but I will take a lot of the eating habits and rules forward with me

    What he is saying is true, but he didn't read the initial post. As what he said doesn't relate to me in any way. But maybe his text wasn't meant for me, I dunno.

    I am using this diet as a way of discovering my sensitivites and allergies. I will re-introduce foods after 30 days. I am not a 40 year old woman who wants to lose weight and jumps on miracle diets to lose weight quickly.

    Doctors and nutritionists use this method to rule out peoples allergies too. Not necesserly with meat though.

    IBS, eh? You may want to read up more on gut bacteria (or gut microbiome) and how they play a part in digestion. Certain probiotics may help your IBS.

    These are the probiotic strains you may want to look out for in probiotic products: B. bifidum, B. lactis, Lactoballicus Plantarum.

    Studies have shown that probiotic containing these good bacteria have shown to help people with IBS. And no, those over-the-counter probiotics products (like yogurt) don't have these strains. You need to get them from high-quality supplement stores and ensure they are stored well as they are live culture.

    The nutrition is for the whole life. Just feed your body what is important for the smooth motor function and mental stability.

    I've read your original post. I failed to mention that, despite any allergy doing constant changes in your nutrition in frequent time frame is not good. If you have any allergy, order issues with digestive tract, consult a highly trained professional instead of doing experiments. The damage done to our internal organs is sometimes very hard to revert.

    First understand what "specific" problems you are facing. Then find an exact solution from a qualified professional. Please, don't experiment with body especially when it comes to our nutrition.
