I love vegetables. A mixed green leaves salad with thinly sliced red onion, a few cherry tomato, kalamata olives, seasoned with extra virgin olive oil and a dash of apple cider vinegar is the perfect complement of a juicy steak.

But I have to admit it: it doesn’t agree with me as much as meat. I can easily eat one kilogram of beef and feel great after the meal (well, after my usual espresso, I’m still a wog at heart…), but if I have more than a little bit of veggies I feel bloated.

Nothing major, of course, not comparable to the sleepy feeling you have after eating carbs, but still not overly pleasant. I can therefore understand why people enjoy a carnivore diet, it’s easy and filling, and you feel great.

I have experimented with a carnivore diet every now and then, with great results I have to say, but I like my veggies, nuts and berries to much to completely get rid of them.

If you are interested in the opinion of one of the world leaders of the carnivore movement, listen to Dr. Shawn Baker on Dr. Bret Scher podcast (Dr. Scher is also called the Low Carb Cardiologist).
