Because it is 10 times as much for me?
I always hated salads and carbs just make me hungrier so cooking carby food is pretty useless in my case…
Obviously one can avoid cooking or do it simply on most woe if they really want, one can do most woe cheap and expensive, simple and complicated… And it matters how exactly one eats, obviously.
I liked my raw vegs but they weren’t food, just joy. I can’t get much protein and nutrients and satiation from them… Just like fruit is natural candy. If it’s about cooking time and effort, my real food is matters, the stuff that gives me satiation and nutrients…
I came from vegetarian keto and I never ever ate meat every day in my life until… 2.5 years ago? My time sense is very off but maybe that. I ate very little meat in my first carnivore trials Those weren’t always easy but still loads better than my normal keto.
But it’s individual. Eat the way you like, even high-carb if that works for you or anything! There are almost always options, whatever your priorities and tastes lie.
I personally always liked to focus on eggs and they are ridiculously easy. I can eat pork roast basically every day but I can’t eat the same egg dishes (except my sponge cakes, I can eat them every day forever I suppose). But as they are so easy, I can have variety there. My freezer is quite small (could be worse, it’s part of a big fridge… I had times when I could put 1 kg stuff into my freezer) so I need to be careful what to put here but even that helps (a smaller one would help to - and if one doesn’t live far from all supermarkets, they can pull it off easier). And we can just buy some canned stuff for convenience and variety. Or make them ourselves sometimes but that’s work. Not so much if one just makes something in bulk, eats some and pressure can the rest.
Meat in soup is pretty okay, I probably could pull off carnivore using only that, it wouldn’t be as nice as with my beloved roasts but doable. And meat is less important not on carnivore, I didn’t need any on my original keto (but it meant I had to spend way more time on cooking)…
Why is tossing meat into the oven for hours is “all that cooking”? Cleaning is one oven pot (it’s a bit problematic, mine has corners… but they never will be clean again, it’s fine) and one plate for the whole week too… But one can do it with even less, buying fried meat and eating from whatever it comes, I am not familiar. But eat carbs, no problem, it just would add insane amount of work and cleaning up for me, typically.
As I eat less fat than ever and way less added fat than on my previous diets, I don’t have the “everything is fatty” problem as a new thing either but that’s me.
Cleaning isn’t the best but fortunately I don’t hate it. Prep is the fun, cooking is when I do nothing just wait It was different before carnivore, I had to stand next to the frying pan all the time… I am glad it’s over. Now I only stand there a bit - except when I make pancakes. But I love pancakes and could sacrifice a lot for them.
