Carnivore Diet Macros

Once upon a time, I didn’t have a clue about macros! If you feel the same and aren’t sure how to make numbers out of the food on your plate, rest easy.

I want to give you this chart as a quick reference cheat sheet to make your carnivore diet easier.

First of all, not everyone needs to track macros on a carnivore diet. Many people see positive results by eating to satiety and following their natural hunger cues. This approach seems to work best on an animal-based diet due to the highly satiating nature of fatty animal protein. (1, 2, 3)

Even so, there are certain times when tracking will prove beneficial.

When to Track Macros on a Carnivore Diet

Consider tracking macros if you:

  • Have specific or time-sensitive goals
  • Need to break a plateau
  • Want to dial in your fat loss and get accelerated results

How to Track Carnivore Diet Macros

We highly recommend you begin by tracking macros by hand rather than an app on your phone.

Not only are tracking apps confusing and time-consuming, but the extra time on your phone isn’t doing you any favors in terms of long-term health. Long-term term exposure to EMF and mobile phones is associated with headaches, sleep disturbance, tension, fatigue, and dizziness, among other concerns. (1, 2, 3

Tracking by hand might seem like a pain at first, but hang in there!

Employing a pen and paper to record your daily macro intake will:

  • Set you up for long-term results
  • Commit common macros to memory quicker than relying on an app
  • Pave the way for intuitive eating
  • Keep your mind young by practicing simple math equations

Carnivore Macros for Weight Loss

Your specific context will determine the exact macros you need to follow. We work closely with all members of our private support forum to dial in daily macros and habits.

Weighing and tracking usually doesn’t continue forever. Put in the effort for a few weeks and then sooner or later, it will become second nature and you’ll be well on your way toward intuitive eating.
