Female, 17yo, 82kg
I’ve been keto since January and I am fat adapted as Well. I haven’t lost any weight on keto until I was able to do EF (4 days water fast).
Since May has been (and still is actually) a super stressing month (exams, tests, homework and stuff), I needed to try a WOE that didn’t require too much time planning/cooking meals so I tried carni. Eat meat, drink water: no waste of time!
On carni I have not lost weight, but in 21 days I lost:
Belly area: -4cm
I think it’s a good result, huh? I love this WOE, it made me feel energetic and focused. I ate between 1800 and 4500kcals/days. (I only ate 4500kcals once, lol. Most days around 2200kcal). I ate around 1/1.2kg of meat per day.
Plus, eating carnivore outside is so easy! Meat is EVERYWHERE. I’m super excited about this WOE and I do feel it is THE woe, the one for me at least.
When it Comes to fasting though, there is a downside to carni: I can’t do EF anymore, nor OMAD. When I was doing keto I could easily fast for 4 days and then eat just one meal a day, now I just can’t, I get super anxious and and end up eating twice a day, everyday. But surprisingly I didn’t Gain weight, which is kinda cool. I still prefer carni over keto though. I’m going to switch back to keto though, for another three weeks and I’ll add dairy (I missed dairy SO MUCH), sweetners and nuts to see if I loose more or Less cm compared to carni and see how I feel overall.
Sorry for my awful English folks.
P.s. I know that 3 weeks is not enough time to decide if this is the right way of eating for me or not, but my carni experience has been amazing so far
