    There many carnivores that are on face book and Instagram. Might be worth searching as there is a lot of information out there.

    Never thought of pork scratchings, genius !
    For now I have bought a handful of packs of sliced meats, if I need a nibble I just grab a couple of slices, and yes fine with diary so melted cheese on ham etc sounds like another great plan.

    Thanks

    When I cook protein I usually cook extra. Helps with not being prepared.

    Mostly meat in its own for me. Very happy to eat that way. Use a fair amount of seasonings - dry rubs, salts and so on. Have always enjoyed simple food so it’s perfect for me - and without the veg you get more of the best bits!

    Editing to say that your pics and @bulkbiker ’s pics are making me feel very greedy - I only have a small frame but my portion sizes seem about the same :D

    Picanha for dinner tonight. Yum. Also bought some unpasteurised butter, which I could easily devour in slices. Totally delicious.

    Without going into the gory details, how does this way of living impact on levels of constipation? Since going LCHF, I find that unless I eat plenty of green vegetables, I can become very 'bunged up'.

    No issues at all for me in that department. In fact tend to get more ‘bunged up’ when eating veg.

    Less stuff in leads to less stuff out.. especially where fibre is concerned.. if you only eat digestible food it gets digested.. far less waste.

    I found the same to begin with, but it sorted itself out after a week or 2 and the fact I wasn’t ‘going’ as often, wasn’t actually constipation - there was just less to eliminate!
    For me, the carni woe actually made me go a lot more often - maybe I was ingesting more fat? I don’t know but stick with it and drink more liquid.

    What stopped you? :hilarious:

    I had beef too, but of the cheap and cheerful variety. Mixed with a couple of eggs, some burrata and carnivore onions.

    It was the hungry looks of husband and daughter that stopped me ! I did glare at them when they said they wanted seconds!
    I need to try burrata
