This is a recent fad diet. It consists of eating animal foods only – meat, poultry, fish, eggs and perhaps dairy. One eats no vegetable foods.
This is a very deficient diet. It will not work for long-term health or development. For health and development, one needs to eat large quantities of cooked vegetables to supply alkaline reserve minerals and many other nutrients. Development also requires eating some almond butter, tahini and blue corn tortilla chips each day.
The carnivore diet may provide short-term benefits because most people overeat on carbohydrates and the carnivore diet eliminates these. However, following it for more than a few days will worsen nutritional deficiencies and stop development. Please avoid the carnivore diet, a very deficient diet, even if you feel better on it short-term.
