I have been Keto for about 2 and a half years shedding about 120 lbs so far with another 80 or so to go. I am beginning to explore more of a carnivore diet. I have done some research and for the most part, it seems like it will be a fairly smooth transition for me.
Please correct any misinformation:
It is my understanding that I should mainly be eating ruminant animals (beef, buffalo, lamb…) and some seafood. I am assuming that deer and elk would fall within those guidelines. Is there a reason that beef seems to be the primary meat for most people, other than it’s availability and cost? I am not much of a fan of seafood (taste and cost) is it okay to bypass this “food group”?
I understand that chicken and pork can also be consumed, but not as frequently due to the fat profiles, or something like that. How do wild goose and duck rank? I know that wild meat is much leaner than beef, so I have been adding butter to taste, is this enough? With 80 lbs to go, I figure I got plenty of energy in my stores to pull from.
Since transitioning to carnivore I have stayed OMAD during the week, and TMAD on the weekends. I find any extended fasting too difficult. Is this common? While doing regular keto I could do 72-96 h fasts weekly or every other week, just depending on how I felt, and what was going on in my life.
Thanks for any insights and advice.
