Well..... It's been just over a year now since I moved over from Paleo to Carnivore way of eating. Bear in mind... This isn't a keto diet. It's similar but by no means the same. Pros... Knee issues gone. Rotar cuff issue... Rarely noticeable. Weight loss... Negligible but down from 32/33 to 29/30 Lean muscle mass... Increased. Stamina... Seems endless some days. Food requirements... Some days on the hill, I only feel the need to eat once. Rarely a need or urge to snack on the go. Ability to fast if needed which lowers weight of food needed. Eating Steak or Burgers whilst your mate spits the dust out from a pouch. Being able to go stoveless and still enjoy a meal. Recovery is excellent even after hard days. Very rarely have any inflammation Nature calls, sometimes once every couple of days... Which has its own benifit on the hills. Mental/ psychology... Improved and inspires me to go for longer/harder days. Sun resistance.... Less intolerant of exposure (not really a good thing) Immune system has improved, which means less chance of ailment on the hills or having to duck a trip. Cons.... Weight of food carried when not fasting. Additional weight of fuel, skillet etc for cooking. Eating Big. When the need to eat occurs, the protocol is to eat until full. I have to eat big... Which can easily involve over 2lbs of meat, wet or dry. If caught short of food, the difficulty of restocking on a thru hike. Broken eggs. Social stigma. Keeping food fresh on warm days. I've had less vegetables, grains, fruit and sugars in a year than most have in a weekend. I've succumbed to the odd scone on or after a hike, rare indulginces like an ice cream or a couple of pints or a small chocolate bar. Some non animal Foods cause discomfort, lethargy and inflammation... Some are manageable and I can adapt to use them on the trail if needed. Down side is they don't really help me other than difference in taste and simulate chewing. Will I continue with it... Absolutely... Will I remain strict... No. If I want to eat or drink something out of protocols., then I will. (like Shewie's cold brew coffee) Which now puts me in the 'Dirty Carnivore' woe. It's not a lifestyle for everyone, but it definitely has its benefits for my treks and runs. Please keep replies relevant to trekking. Medical and environmental issues can be discussed elsewhere. Thanks.
