I eat exclusively meat.
In early 2013 a reckless general medical practitioner prescribed me enough antibiotics to mess up my gut microbiome. This lead to what was then a mild folliculitis to become severe chronic folliculitis with chronic seborrhoeic dermatitis following suit.
I suffered with this condition for over 4 years, and saw plethora of dermatologists (who knew naught but to prescribe ever more antibiotics). Then, just within two weeks of going on the carnivore diet (beef, salt and pepper) I was cured 95%.
Is it safe?
The carnivore diet provides all the nutrients and is (anecdotally) safe to do long-term. In fact, meat is the only nutritionally complete food.
One ought to pay lip service to general nutritional wisdom as they are laced with an anti-meat bias (see below) using problematic epidemiological studies where, depending on the researcher’s nutritional bias, one can establish any food item to be problematic. For a telling instance of how biased our health organizations can be, refer to Dr. David M Klurfeld’s report of his experience with a WHO working group:
- [Dr. David M Klurfeld] was on the World Health Organization working group to decide if meat causes cancer in 2015 with a bunch of vegetarians and vegans and says it was the most frustrating professional experience of his life
- There were 22 scientists - half of which were epidemiologists
- They claimed they used 800 studies but they actually only used 18
- There was a group of people that were strongly against the vote
- He thinks a number of the people made up their minds before they even arrived
- Healing reports
- Getting started
- PKD: a variation of the carnivore diet—high fat, organ meat, without dairy or spices–designed to heal intestinal permeability.
Being a carnivore in Canada
Many butcher shops and grocery stores in Quebec City carry mostly lean meat owing to public demand (you can blame the dietary guidelines for that). Fattier cuts are harder to come by.
Florent & Fils
In the city this is where you can get the best ground beef. Pepper & salt is all I add. They also sell wagyu beef.
Their palette de boeuf is delicious when cooked sous-vide 24 hours. Although I had to add spices (mainly pepper and garlic).
