How to Start a Carnivore Diet

Finally deciding to start the most radical health-boosting diet is an exciting step!

Before you begin, define your “why”.

Why are you choosing this dietary approach? What issues do you want to address?

Keep these reasons in the forefront of your mind, write them down, and use them as motivation as you move forward.

Now, there are five basic steps to follow:

  1. Eat high-fat meat; the fattier, the better.
  2. Avoid all plant foods.
  3. Salt your food liberally.
  4. Drink water as desired. 
  5. Read carnivore diet success stories to stay motivated. 

Don’t worry about justifying yourself to others or conforming to their expectations. Similarly, don’t push your position on anyone.

Treat this as an experiment. You have to commit.

There’s a popular understanding that people need 21 days to establish a new habit. However, this may or may not be completely true since it probably depends on how consistent you are in changing, how established the original habit is, and how you’re held accountable. (1, 2, 3)

Regardless, 21 days is a good chunk of time to dedicate to new dietary patterns if you follow through every day.

Therefore, commit to 3 weeks and see if it makes a positive difference in your health. Then, you can decide to continue or not.

Customizable Recipes

My simple carnivore diet meal plan includes recipes made exclusively from 100% animal protein and fats. That means there are no vegetables, plant foods, herbs, spices, sauces, or condiments.

I’ll bring you through your first three weeks of a carnivore diet with increasingly strict meal plans. Then, you’ll learn how to balance your nutritional needs with shopping and meal prep. Soon this way of eating will be second nature.

Our first week together includes meat, of course, and various recipes containing egg and dairy. Next, the focus turns to meat and eggs with the exclusion of dairy in week two. Finally, week three teaches how to eat just meat!

There are many dairy-free and egg-free options which allows you to learn what works best for your body and eat accordingly.

You can mix and match individual meals from the meal plan or move full days around to best suit your needs, preferences, and taste. The format is very flexible.
