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.
