The carnivore diet. Eat meat, drink water.

With no vegetables, fruits, or carbs, the carnivore diet is reaching fad/cult status as a nutritional strategy that some swear by...while many wave off as unscientific and unsafe. While it may be easy to glance at the headlines and think "Now, that's just crazy", we remember when intermittent fasting received the same mixed reactions in its infancy. In true HVMN fashion, we will look at the available data, anecdotes, and theories before closing the book on the carnivore diet.

Travis Statham, our carnivorous guest today, moderates well-known carnivore communities including World Carnivore Tribe & r/zerocarb. Before going carnivore, Travis ate keto for more than 5 years.

In this discussion, you'll discover:

  • Why carnivores believe the fiber from vegetables aren't essential for human health
  • The nutrient density of red meat & misconceptions of saturated fat
  • Theories on human evolution and how these theories inspire the carnivorous philosophy
