I want to try the carnivore diet for the Next few weeks but I think I’m eating a huge amount of protein. I can easily eat as much as 200g of protein. Which is too much protein…
Other than meat, I also eat olive oil and eggs (which contain carbs) so my diet is not ZC. (I make mayo with those)
I’m a female, 17 yo and dont work out. I’ve been keto since January and haven’t lost any weight until I tried extended fasting (3-4 days/week). After that I lost 6 kg but gained those back due to medications I have to take. Now I find myself unable to fast for more than 24h because I’m too stressed out so I thought that eating even fewer carbs will make me lose some fat even without fasting (that’s the reason why I started this ‘dirty carnivore’ diet).
I’ve red many posts on this forum about eating too much protein in correlation with rising insuline level/ not rising insuline level. I understood that if I eat ZC (then avoiding eggs) the chances of protein rising insuline level are super low, is it correct? I would cut eggs out If I could eat a decent amount of protein tbh (so more than the 65g that Cronometer suggests)
Share with me your thoughts/knowledge about protein in correlation with insuline.
If you think that 150/even 200g of protein is too much for me, how much protein should I consume? Sadly for me is way too easy to overeat on protein.
