I am not knowledgeable about the FODMAP and lectins (it was long ago I have read about that on paleo sites) but isn’t chocolate high in oxalates?
Oh, off carnivore trial! I had dozens in the last 16 months for sure, I always do on/off keto even if the keto part is carnivore. It’s hard to say what is okay and what is not sometimes especially if one doesn’t add only one item.
I didn’t experiment with chocolate as carnivore killed my chocolate desire (at least towards my own that doesn’t even have cocoa butter not like it enhanced the taste when I used it) so I barely taste it on some of my off days and just get disappointed and stop. I pretty much stopped even trying already, I can learn. I still love cocoa powder, that’s fine but of course, the amount is tiny and I am not particularly sensitive.
I am curious about your experiences in April, see you at some point here, maybe when you do carnivore again and share it with us! Best wishes!
(You can come anyway like I did in my carbier times though I tend to be more scarce then but I still can talk about meat and eggs and the thread may pull me back. But I almost never do true carnivore, just carnivore-ish. A little bit of onion, tomato puree, a pickle happens now and then even if I do my best. It’s good enough for me and my food is way, way closer to carnivore than to general keto with all those plants and sweeteners. I focus on very low-carb, not avoiding every speck of plants even if that destroys some of my favorite meat- or egg-based dishes. We always eat beef as stew except when I fry a little bit as stew is great and we don’t know what else to do with beef leg. Roasts need a high fat content according to my taste. But I will experiment later.)
Some of us like gradual changes, I can understand adding back things and see what happens. I always like better when I am all free and get persuaded by my body (who tasted carnivore and liked it but my mind wanted things it missed or something. my body never told me on carnivore that it totally needed plants and other non-carnivore carbs, never) that it’s not so great - vs forcing to stay on carnivore, not like I could do that without a good reason like I die if I touch plants or something. But some people truly function better with some plants, it seems. Whatever is the case, try to find your current sweet spot And be open to changes, they are very surprising sometimes. But you are, that’s why you experiment. Good luck! (Someone shut me up already…)
