and add more fat?
How much protein are you consuming? Not necessarily saying more fat, but if you cut back a little on the protein it will automatically raise your % of fat. Also, as others have said, it does take a week or two for your system to adjust, you may just have to be patient. Look at the bright side, consider it “training for preping for a colonoscopy”.
I look at some pictures of folks food and mine is not nearly that much. Its like some meatballs and 2 pieces of pork loin or ground sausage and eggs or ground beef with a few meatballs with some butter. Nothing crazy. One thing I didn’t mention is that on Saturday I went to a function that had a buffet and I had one rib, a small piece of breaded fish and some spinach/sausage/cheese casserole. At first I thought it may have been the fish since it was breaded and I don’t know what kind of oil they used. Everything else was some carbage and protein.
@Diygurl19 Traci, for the first 3 weeks when I went carnivore I had diarrhea. I just waited it out and it finally stopped. It doesn’t seem to be that uncommon when beginning carnivore.
It’s awful! I just want to be in bed.
Could it be food poisoning? You stated you ate at a buffet. Just a thought.
I agree with Frank. Mine was annoying but that kind of sounds like a bit of food poisoning. Either way, I sure hope you feel better soon!
I had two eggs last night and this morning I still had problems.
Well, food poisoning can take time to work itself out of your system if it was that?
When I had the runs from carnivore, it did not make me feel sick and I still did my usual 1-2 times per day, it’s just that it was (prepare for the tmi) like liquid.
My stomach burns for 5-15 minutes throughout the day, when I have to go but it’s not (TMI) liquid, but it’s not solid either. It woke me up this morning and yesterday morning and at work it’s difficult and I just want to lay down under the covers. I don’t even want to exercise!
@Diygurl19 The medical folks at the clinic in Hungary (Paleo Medicina) say that not enough fat in the diet will cause that. Like I said, I knew I had enough fat but still experienced frequent trips to the bathroom TMI (pure liquid) for several weeks so I just tried to hang in there. Also, in the beginning, I found that I did better with non-rendered fats.
I read the blog of a guy with crohns who went carnivore and he spent lots of time in the bathroom for the first 3 months of carnivore, poor guy but then his bowels really began to heal up. I think part of my problem was my gallbladder trying to get used to all that fat as well.
Thanks ReneeRC for the information.
hard to expect carnivore results if you don’t eat carnivore- even a 30 day strict trial can help give you an idea of what to expect.
It was a spoon full of pico and spinach.
and breading on fish and casserole… just saying 95%-99% won’t get you adapted like 100%
Breading on fish. Casserole was spinach, sausage and cheese.
every holiday gathering I eat before I go, then pick at what is acceptable- makes thing simple
The PKD also recommends including organ meats. I’ve actually gotten used to the liver now (grass fed/finished is the best, imho) and the brains scramble up nicely in my eggs.
Does anyone here ever cook Sweetbreads (pancreas) and if so, do you have a recipe? 57% of our RDA for vitamin C in 100g. Lots of other goodies as well like with other organ meats.
