While I am no carnivore, I try to stay very close most of the time… I eat about no ruminants, it seems fine. I barely ate any ruminants in my whole life and I never ate much meat and maybe I never will.
I live on eggs and pork, mostly but I doubt one can eat on eggs mostly. It’s not perfect nutritionally - very great but not great enough - and I personally can get bored of eggs too… I rarely eat 12 eggs, more like 6-8 in average. I need meat for certain nutrients, variety, joy, probably for other reasons too, I don’t know all the important reasons but carnivore with extremely little meat, it sounds very, very bad. I can pull it off for a while with little and I am pretty sure one pound is more than enough for me (in average) but almost none… And chicken… Many of us find chicken not so great. Carnivore can be very different for different people but trace amount of meat carnivore, I can’t consider it even remotely valid.
I was an ovo-lacto vegetarian and then close to that (meat a few times a year for convenience, I didn’t specifically want it). People totally couldn’t comprehend it either and it’s odd as this country has plenty of vegetarians, vegans, even raw-vegans aren’t that rare…
I never heard of carnivores here and keto isn’t popular either. Paleo is the big thing.
Beef isn’t a very popular meat, too expensive and not even available in villages, at least not around here. People eat pork and chicken, mostly. Turkey and duck, maybe…
I would be DOOMED without pork. I couldn’t do carnivore without it at all. Without ruminant meat? Easy enough. But it’s always nice to have some here and there.
It’s way easier for me to eat carnivore as my relatives consider meat a normal part of a meal (restaurants are better for a mostly-carnivore than a vegetarian who needs big, fatty meals with lots of animal protein but no cheese if possible… that’s why I usually ate meat in restaurants in my almost-vegetarian times). I eat the meat they provide and that’s it (if I want. I don’t need carnivore all the time so I am more flexible when visiting). They had a bigger problem with meatless dishes though one relative (the one who I visited very frequently) learned to handle that, the lovely soul. While she can’t comprehend very low-carb (diabetes or not - from her part, I am healthy), she often makes fried meat, I simply don’t eat anything with it (and stay hungry especially if it’s chicken but I bring my own eggy and meaty and fatty bites so it’s all good).
I don’t find it a problem to skip the food if it’s not okay, I drank mineral water while the girls ate cake and chatted for hours before… We went to meet, not eating and especially not criticizing each other’s habits (even though one did that but it’s not my problem).
It’s probably harder for some people and in the case of certain situations but you even have a valid reason to avoid plants… You are basically allergic or similar enough. I am not but it’s my life, my woe so I have all the right to eat whatever or fast so I don’t care about other people’s personal little problems regarding my life.
People don’t need to understand my/your woe. They just should respect you and accept your decisions about your own life.
But I am a hermit. And if I still go to somewhere, I can just not eat.
I can imagine it’s way harder for you… But you still need to focus on your health. Many people can’t eat things very very very common in dishes in their countries. Avoiding them can be hard but must be done… If one feels obligated to eat things very bad for them, that’s horrible though. If we don’t protect our health, who will?
Oh I forgot before, I eat not only cheap “normal” meat but organs too. It adds some nice variety and it’s different nutritionally from eggs. Not for everyone, it seems. Eating organs is very very common in my country but it wouldn’t help if I didn’t like the taste of certain organs. I still can’t eat much of them but a little liver can make a difference.
3 months? I am sure some people lived on only eggs for 3 months (it’s still insane, of course). Many eggs with some meat and extra fat sounds way better for a while. Still far from ideal, of course. But I don’t know. A healthy one surely could pull it off if they wouldn’t start starving rather than eat in such a limited way… It would bother me and I don’t even have your health problems, I am sorry for your troubles And for my wall of text too. If I could write consise, I would have done it.
Whatever suits you. I did anything between 1:2 and 2:1 but my own taste, food items, energy need etc. points to something around 1:1… More protein if I eat less, more fat if I eat more…
But some people feels their body likes a specific ratio…
Oh my, you need to eat! Can’t you add fat somehow? Fatty items? Ouch, it’s hard if you can’t just eat cheese or fatty meat but some added fat is something…
Do you need hunger to eat? Can’t you just eat? Something little, dense, tempting? Drinking calories?
