I assume you are already in ketosis.
Are you in need of an elimination diet to diagnose issues, or just having fun?
- Give it at least 28 days
- If Wing sauce has tomatoes or peppers in it, be careful, I react to those
- Be warned. I used to tolerate almonds and macadamia nuts before going carnivore. It turns out, tolerating was all I was doing. They were probably not good for me. AFTER going carnivore, you MAY find you react to old foods. They now cause me migraines and inflammation and joint pain.
And that last part is the magic for me. If you don’t go completely clean, how will you know what is bothering you? I would prefer you did 28 days of pure Carnivore (no dairy, no eggs even). And then once a week, try a food.
What struck me was how AMAZING I felt on pure carnivory. And how SHITTY I felt the instant I ate stuff I thought was okay.
Also, there are layers. In the beginning, I tolerated avocado when I tested it, but months later I noticed it was causing weight gain (1lb per avocado, overnight). All inflammation.
So, my answer is “It depends”. But I would certainly want to go COMPLETELY clean. It is just not that far. And if you do OMAD, and find foods you enjoy, I love it. (Bacon!)
And it is only 28 days. I just helped someone break through and it was about removing all of those “Keto” foods they enjoyed. Mostly the nut flours.
Now, if you see no difference after 28 days. You’re probably fine, you will notice when you add things back in. Do them slowly, one food at a time. Give it 3-5 days to react.
I would also say NO to artificial sweeteners. Because they are evil and maintain our addictions, but could be messing with you.
I think electrolytes are the same. I Struggled with cramps on SAD, on KETO and on Carnivore. Eating Liver and taking Vitamin K2 seems to help.
Should you take vitamins… Well, the capsules can be made from rice… It’s always something.
