I've been on the carnivore diet for over a month now but just haven't had that extra "pep" I was promised. I'm also getting too much sleep and haven't felt the need to check myself into an institution.

It's become obvious that #carnivoreisnotenough

Thank you, Petersons! Now I know what I am missing!

Long time ago I was sitting in with some guys for jam sessions. Most had been through rehab. Most still drank and used weed. But they all hated meth.

It's called eating a diet based on traditional foods and preparation methods like fermentation, organ meats, heritage grains, etc. Short term it might help to completely eliminate a food group, but from the little research I've done there's no historical basis for saying that humans should never consume dairy/legumes/pork/etc. Heal your gut, and eat the food.

Diet is intrinsically short term. Healthy eating can last a lifetime. I've been staying mostly in ketosis for about a decade now. When I eat that way, I feel good and my weight trends down. When I don't, I regret it and my pants get too tight.

If you don't screw yourself up when you're young, you can probably handle eating carbs when you get old. If you have insulin resistance/metabolic syndrome/type 2 diabetes, you need to just stop the carbs completely. That's the first step to healing your gut.

Nobody needs carbohydrates, although a healthy body can handle them.

If you have weight problems, read Banting's Letter on Corpulence, read Steffanson's accounts, read the Eating Academy site.

@Kat ''but from the little research I've done there's no historical basis for saying that humans should never consume dairy/legumes/pork/etc.''

Restricted diets do and have worked across many generations. However I believe a large part of the issue was the attempted globalization of diet in the Boomer era: white bread startrek pills which are enriched with 'everything a body needs!'. For a specific example lactose dairy should definitely not be a part of many people's diet but the global system is made to export cow milk and not goat's milk. Gluten is starting to look like a problem but it might just be a preparation issue.

The point being diet was always restricted by your region and watching what your family makes and had been making. Race, as the lactose shows us, matters for your diet. You would eat the meat your father's had a great time eating, drinking the specific alcohol everyone around you drank without having allergic reactions etc. I suspect phenotype/inherited whatever is a key part of what 'diet' works for anyone in particular, but good luck hearing anyone but the fringe talk about that.

Intermittent fasting works and is easy to incorporate into your lifestyle.

Keto to control diabetes works wonders. Most who stick to it properly reduce their insulin resistance and medication use. Many even go off metformin and insulin and bring their A1C down to non-diabetic levels.

Any way of eating works if you commit to it. Problem is that most people lack the discipline and dedication to their chosen path and then cry that it's not sustainable. Sustainability is an emotional problem.

Church systems of fasting generally work out pretty well. The may not get you thin in record time, but they improve your mental discipline and improve your body's ability to clear toxins stored in the fat, so they at least pave the road for it.

Well, and also they've been developing them for a couple of thousand years or thereabout. That probably helps.

To be fair I think you can blame skinny jeans and lack of tailoring for some of that. Adding spandex means fewer measurements (ie inseam) a fashion line has to get right in order for clothes to "fit." Otherwise I doubt stretch would be ubiquitous in everything from size 2-20.

There are "diets" in the sense of short term weight loss programs. As in "going on a diet". I would guess this is a fairly recent coinage. Then there is "diet" in the sense of what is eaten long term. As in "the diet of the gorilla", "the traditional Inuit diet", or "the standard American diet". Yes, it is possible to change your diet in the sense of the foods you take in long-term on a daily basis. It's difficult to change decades of habit. But that doesn't mean that whatever you accepted as default growing up (frequently due to industrial and commercial pressures) should be normative and unalterable.

@14 Lost 15 pounds eating exclusively potatoes over the past month. Felt good energy, clear headed, projects started getting done. Never felt hunger. Carbs and starches are a gift from God, they are easy on the digestion. The problem people have with wheat, 90% of the time, is the extra mineral "enrichments" added that inflame the gut. And the vitamin "enrichments" that mess with your sense of appetite, to make you eat more.

So, if carnivore diet is working for you, Ominous, well and good. For those that can't afford it, the foods God gave us are just fine, if we can actually get them the way God made them and not tampered with.

Blogger James Lovebirch November 04, 2019 10:59 PM  

@43

That sounds like it'd be effective as a kind of purging diet. Without animal foods however, your diet is severely deficient in most vitamins that need to be consumed in an animal rather than plant form (A, B12, D, K) and a few minerals which are only bioavailable when already assimilated from soil by an herbivore (iron, calcium). You would also be lacking a complete amino acid profile and the essential fatty acids.

If you intend to do such a diet longterm, like vegans you will hit a wall from the deficiencies within 2-10 years. However, you probably won't experience the same rapid aging as that happens that they do because potatoes are fairly low in toxic antinutrients, as far as plantfoods go.

You're correct that any kind of synthetic fortification of minerals and vitamins is likely to be biologically useless at best or even more likely destructive. You can google videos of people putting magnets in cereal to pull out the iron shavings they use to "fortify" that crap.

Blogger JAG November 05, 2019 12:40 AM  

You can what you want and still lose weight. You just have to keep track of your caloric intake. Keep it to 2K or less and you'll lose 5-10 pounds in the first month.

You'll then hit a wall as your metabolism adjusts. This can take 4 to 6 weeks, or at least in my case that is what it took. Once past that the pounds will start to melt much faster.

Combine that with a moderate work outs like walking, biking, swimming, and you'll lose the weight even faster.

You can eat sugary crap the whole time, drink cokes, eat burgers. None of that will matter as long as you watch the total caloric intake number.

Blogger Vaughan Williams November 05, 2019 12:59 AM  

@46 It is effective as a fat loss diet. It is called the potato "hack" because it is intended as a short term intervention, not a lifestyle. You make good points about the vitamins and bioavailable minerals. Also glad you specified that the timeline to deficiency as 2-10 years. Spudfit went one year and lost a hundred pounds without any deficiencies.

I would quibble about amino acid profile and essential fatty acids. Potato's, like most other plants, do have all the essential amino acids. If you eat more than the minimum amount, you will get as much amino acid of the various essential types as you need. About the fatty acids, well, people go on the potato diet to burn off the fat they already have, so that isn't much of an issue either. Spudfit didn't have an Omega3 deficiency during his year on the potato diet, so it is possible the body can live off its stores for quite a while. Not sure what the linking policy is here, but this article on the topic of amino acids and plants is interesting: https://www.treehugger.com/green-food/myth-complete-protein.html

I'm type 1 and can verify how well keto works. But it's because it's not really a diet, it's just an understanding of an important natural process for our body. Everyone should make sure they are capable of ketosis far as I can tell. The best part is once your body transitions into it your cravings change which helps with the discipline. Discipline fails a lot with diets that are gimmicky and hit a wall.

I still haven't tried meth as a diabetic though. Maybe I'll order a consultation from Mikhaela.. satisfaction guaranteed I'm sure

Blogger rumpole5 November 05, 2019 8:06 PM  

I have tried an intermittent 36 hour fast (eg: 6pm Sun to 6am Tues) 3 days a week for about a month. So far I lost about 8 pounds and an inch or so off my waist and a bit more off the gut. The top B/P number droped about 10 to 15 points, the bottom was unchanged, and the fasting blood sugar was, if anything, a bit higher, although twice it was 95 or so which is low for me. I recommend trying it because of the change in perspective as to hunger and taste of food. I decided to leave off a few days ago after hurting my back in some unwise lifting, but I plan to plunge back in after that heals a bit. I think that my personal problem is age. I'm increasingly convinced that people over 50 really don't need to eat at all!

Blogger sammibandit November 05, 2019 8:46 PM  

I'll chime in now that this thread has simmered for a bit because I have knowledge of what works based on a sample size of several thousand.

I studied the overweight and obese population of my region for 4 years to see if people being paid to lose weight had more success than those who were not paid. I'm no statistics-trained analyst but I talked to my participants daily most of the day so I noticed some patterns.

Even grabbled-up, ad hoc "science" with ever changing methodology couldn't hide what is plain as day. Calories in = calories out. Weight loss itself fosters internal motivation. Self respect is earned. Duh. And I got to watch as oodles of people did it themselves. Many were completely different in attitude by the end of phase one.

In the context of my work this meant two things:

1. Weight Watchers, aka calorie counting, works. It also works with the externally motivated, who by their nature need a relational system of support, self-reported that the group meetings helped them stay on track. A lot of these people felt pings inside when they missed meetings showing they internalized the ideas. No kidding my participants all gushed about the programme and kept the weight off whether they did the meetings or not so long as they tracked points.

2. People who were not paid to lose weight lost more individually and as a group than those who were paid. Their attitudes were more positive in the longterm. My paid participants in contrast often complained they weren't paid enough when asked about what challenges they experienced. Their interest declined over time as they grew to dislike being tied to a gift with strings.

Blogger Vaughan Williams November 06, 2019 4:50 AM  

@58 calories in = calories out may be true in the long term, but when someone has significant fat reserves they can see some mighty strange things over the short term. By short term, I mean time periods less than a month. I once went a couple weeks at 800 calories per day, and didn't lose weight. I was eating a variety of healthy and unhealthy foods. Then I went paleo/keto, ate 3000 calories a day, 85% fat with 10% protein and 5% carbs. gained 20 pounds in as many days. Took forever to get it back off. Then the potato diet; first time I tried it I lost 17 pounds in 20 days. Doing it subsequent times took longer, but after cutting out alcohol it worked at a nice clip. My metabolism had downregulated over the years to something like 1800 calories per day or less, but comparing daily calorie intake to weight loss, the potato diet has revved it up to 3000 calories a day, which is mighty reassuring. Metabolic downregulation is hell to reverse. Or it was, until the potato hack.
