Hi and welcome.
Thing is with carnivore there is no “does this sound like enough for me?”
In carnivore this does not exist. A very hard concept for many to ever understand.
See when you go meat/seafood and fat only………your body WILL ask you to eat the amt. it requires to heal your health. In that you could be eating a ton of junk all day long and into very high kcals like 3-4,000 of food your body doesn’t want. So when you switch to carnivore, eating the meat and fat your body absolutely does require for survival, it might ask for a hell of a lot of it.
Some gals easily eat 2-3 lbs per day when starting. I did I thought OMG how can I eat this much? truly and it healed me and I was happy and I thrived.
So the thought of ‘how much do I require to eat’ is never a question or guideline ever in carnivore.
You eat when hungry. You eat ‘REAL’ meat first…as in if you find yourself hungry eat a steak. Eat a few massive lamb chops. Never pull back. It is eat your fill. Your body is asking that of you. You do that, you won’t eat again until your body says it needs more. And when you truly hear that calling of hunger, you eat just as much as you need to be happy and full.
One concept on carnivore that I love. You eat what the body is asking. You never limit yourself.
Normal is around 1.5-2 lbs. for a lot of people but many and I mean many can easily go over this kinda line and do well for themselves. Being individual we are just that way.
Many eat way more than one would ever think and improve themselves so much and that is the gals here LOL
Carnivore drops it all. All the diet baggage at the door. We don’t macro, we don’t count kcals ever, we don’t do anything but eat meat/seafood as we need. We will all then change as we must on plan to suit our bodies needs. That is why one might struggle longer than another but if all hold plan tight the one struggling catches up with the one that had an easier walk.
I hope some of that helps you One thing about carnivore, ya go in it you must do it for best results. Going in and out of carnivore never will truly help you much. You think you are there in a way but you really ever are not. Only meat and seafood on a carnivore diet will give the results you want to know if you do the plan as it should be.
So if ya give it a go, go all in Chat up as you want or need here and we can all help ya thru it!
Now also remember, you don’t have much weight to lsoe which is a good thing but you might gain a bit on carnivore. Cause your body is malnourished thru years of tricks/tips/fasting/kcal counting and limiting/whatever your life is as in what meds you are on, stress, disease/diagnosis situations we battle thru life. SO WE are all different so if you gain a bit eating all the meat you want, then your body is needing that. It wants that. So if you put on some lbs it is actually OK cause your body wants to go that way…….you hold the line and all of the sudden your body will drop those lbs. You will balance out all your hormones and heal internally. But this is ALL very personal to each of us from where we come from. Beauty of carnivore also is that we each walk such a personal walk on it We learn so much from each other but if we hold carnivore, we find in the end we all end up in the best darn place ever.
hope some of that gives you an idea of how we roll in carnivore
