"HUMANS HAVE EVOLVED THE ability to digest all manner of food items, from fruits and vegetables to animal products. Debate continues about what constitutes the best ratio of various types of food to support optimal human health, but a new entrant into the diet scene suggests that all plants are suspect and we should embrace an animal-only diet for improved physical well-being.

This so-called carnivore diet is a "zero-carbohydrate diet and an extreme version of the keto diet," says Hollie Zammit, a registered dietitian with Orlando Health in Orlando, Florida.

This approach to eating encourages consuming only animal protein, which proponents say can help you avoid or reverse common ailments such as diabetes, obesity and autoimmune diseases…"

The Carnivore Diet: What You Need to Know

A true, B'daaah! moment

Y'know, the more I read from these "doctors" the more I realize that I'm reading too much!!!

Yeah got it in March, still taking pills for it. But at least I can walk, almost back to "normal", whatever that is ? evil grin Was very painful !😢😭

"eat meat"?
I was amazed to find out that there are things like bean/legumes, etc., that can cause it as well. As I normally don't eat a lot of red meat. But Bleeped text happens !

Give up chocolate chip cookies? I don't think so.

Gout can be triggered by shellfish, like scallops. And organs (bleh!).

Its hard to find aboriginal societies living primarily on meat… and those you do are living in extreme conditions like Arctic dwellers… or, to a lesser extent, goat-herd dependent peoples living where the human usable plant growth is so marginal (like in high altitude deserts) that they need a go between to live from the land.

Its too bad its considered a "political" conversation, as it seems very clear that humans evolved primarily on plants. The ability to eat meat is an evolutionary advantage we have over cows and sheep… but that does not mean its best for us. Eat your veggies, my friends.

I did very low carb for 12 years -
66/99/15. Yes, 15. Lost 35lbs as well.
Still not dead. Made my doctor reconsider some of his teaching.

Though, I do need to rededicate myself. Giving up beer is tough.

gout is terrible, by best wishes for you. Dont think I am anti meat, I grew up on a ranch. Moderation in all things seems to work for me.

Beware the alimentary transit time.

Thank you ! It's much better but still I feel it a bit. But yes if I can limit my meat/protein intake I do.

After being in the Infantry for over a decade in my long passed youth,'79-'90. old fart I thought my feet hurt after a 10 or 12 mile forced road march … but the gout far surpassed that ! frown
