Shawn Baker's Carnivore Diet is a revolutionary, paradigm-breaking nutritional strategy that takes contemporary dietary theory and dumps it on its head. It breaks just about all the "rules" and delivers outstanding results. At its heart is a focus on simplicity rather than complexity, subtraction rather than addition, making this an incredibly effective diet that is also ...more

Just eat a steak!

It is so ironic yet infuriating that eating meat will probably cure most of our health problems yet our government and media outlets do not see it that way.....yet.

The author has excellent credentials:

* a world champion/elite athlete while on the carnivore diet (Not just a bookish theorist)

* a medical doctor who is also a medical specialist, with a lot of experience - in peacetime and in war zones

* well versed in the scientific literature

* well-trained and well-practised in critically assessing evidence

* author does not say this is 'the only good diet', but does say it can and does do a lot of good for many people

* author capably debunks various

I had heard about this book on a podcast and was interested in learning about this strange diet as its so far removed from how I eat. There were several interesting points about how we eat veggies that have toxins and can be disrupters of good health for many, vegan and vegetarian diets lead to deficiencies, and the great results many people have received with this sort of diet. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle but Im certainly not convinced that this diet is best in the long term. ...more

I usually think that extremes are bad, and recently I've been sick of listening, watching and seeing all the vegan nonsense that has been pushed to us through different propagandist means. Don't get me wrong, I eat and enjoy vegetables and fruits and both are to some extent part of the nutrition path that I've chosen for myself after many different trials and errors. Although there's nothing I enjoy eating more than a medium rare rib eye, I don't plan to become a 100% carnivore anytime soon; but ...more

A must read in this day and age

I want sure I was going to like what he had to say, I'm not always a fan of the things he says on Instagram and it's often removed from the original woe I learned to follow in ZIOH, but this book encompassed all of the information in an easy to digest (haha!) way. It's a must read and a great way to start informing yourself on how to be healthy for life.
Highly recommend.

Por qué no preguntarnos cuál es el mejor alimento para el ser humano? Por qué no cuestionar la piramide nutrimenta? Por qué hoy que hemos avanzado tanto en la ciencia hay más obesidad que en cualquier otra epoca de la historia? Estas son algunas de las preguntas que se platean en este libro.
Hemos visto que hay una serie de dietas que nos hablan del consumo de los seres humanos cuando eran nómadas, de ahí muchas de las dietas paleo o keto. También podemos ver las dietas vegetarianas o veganas que

An excellent book on Carnivore diet! As a one of the modern carnivore Diet pioneers and advocates and a central figure in carnivore movement Dr Baker is almost the only person with experience and knowledge to write such a comprehensive Carnivore diet book.
It touches on the following subjects- Authors incredible life story, anthropology of human diets, perceived Environmental costs and the data that has been gathered on it, health improvements clinically with multiple success stories and with

Empowering Information

Very well laid out perspective about why an animal based diet is truly the proper human diet. You cannot argue with the benefits people are experiencing from pain control to remission of depression and anxiety, healed metabolism, weight reduction, increased mental clarity, increased energy, better sleep and increased libido! I have experienced the benefits myself and have decided that it is time for me to step out as a health care professional and help others find their way

This book was good. I would say that if you prefer getting your information from a visual or audio source, Dr. Bakers visits on podcasts and his YouTube channel offer the same information. This book was a good consolidation of his research, however I didnt learn much that he hadnt previously discussed in other places.

Interesting, thought provoking and challenging recent thinking. I will be implementing the diet soon. Would be good to see more athletes and similar as advokates.

Simple straight forward without bro-science or hype

Ive been keto for a while, and was Paleo before that. I heard about the Carnivore diet and thought it was nutty, but kept hearing about it. What the heck, I started in on it (how simple, no macronutrients to count, etc) and figured a week wouldnt hurt. I downloaded the kindle book as I started going carnivore, and wow, Im committed to at least 30 days with the assurance that it is NOT a fad. Results so far? Ive never been less anxious about

Must read

Its time to rethink what you think you know about nutrition. This is a great introduction to a completely different paradigm on health and nutrition that will definitely make you open your mind to new possibilities. Great read!

If a Vegan happens to see this, you are not our enemy, join us so that were all able to self-determine our food choices in the future.

Excellently written book. It's hard to ignore this movement when everyone who has tried it for long enough seems to have great results. I'm certainly going to trial it a few times and possibly even do a month to see how I get on. I'd love for there to be more scientific data and less anecdotes but I appreciate this isn't available. It does however affect the quality/validity of the book somewhat despite the logic behind all its claims being very solid.

This resource, written by a medical doctor, explained the Carnivore Diet clearly. It has good basic information as well as helpful charts and success stories. A very good resource for those who are curious about this way of eating.
