Carnivore diet

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:


Being a carnivore in Canada

Quebec City

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.

Boucherie Eumatimi

Their palette de boeuf is delicious when cooked sous-vide 24 hours. Although I had to add spices (mainly pepper and garlic).
