Just wondering anecdotally how many carnivores here who are still in a weight loss phase also practice IF and EF? What has your experience been?
This is my second full week as total carnivore (no dairy). I definitely realize that EF is harder on carnivore for some reason, on the other hand 24 hours has become effortless. I just don’t want to fall into OMAD and slow down my metabolism, so I would eat 2 or 3 meals at least every other day (ALWAYS MEAT, and preferably USDA Prime NY Strip from Costco, Grass fed ground beef, or bacon).
I am about 16-20 lbs from my goal (we’ll see if that goal is actually what I thought it would be, could be that I need to lose a bit more), and I have dropped down to 24hr x 2 or 3 per week. I used to do 36 x 2 or x3 per week.
So far I am down 55lbs since May 2016 and the beginning of my big keto, fasting, carnivore journey, but would not have gotten this far without Dr. Fung’s fasting protocols. Occasional EF seems worth it to me just for the autophagy.
Am 6’5 dude currently at 230, aiming for 210-15 neighborhood.
Any thoughts about carnivore IF/EF?
