    in my understanding it is a way of eating
    of 0 carbs where you only eat foods from the
    animal kingdom and no plants
    and only drink water

    By "meat" do you mean unprocessed meat? Beef, Chicken, Pork etc with nothing else. No gravy, vegetables etc.
    Sounds like it's very low in vitamins / minerals plus no fibre.
    Not sure about this for me.

    I believe @NoCrbs4Me does this.
    There are various stories of people who thrive with this way of eating on the Internet.
    Google zero carb diet.

    There are plenty of essential vits and minerals in meat, and dairy is allowed. The gravy comes from the meat juices. Not entirely sure about fibre, but how essential is a lot of fibre for people with normal digestive systems?

    I wonder if anyone does this with fish rather than meat?

    You’d have to probably add some fat to fish.

    I tend to prefer the "eat meat drink wine" version.

    Hi All, yes I have eaten this way (approx 98% carnivore) for the last 4 months.

    I only started doing it after a tummy bug that left me unable to digest veg for a while, but I have felt so good on it that I am carrying it on. Better in fact, than when vegetables played a large role in my eating.

    My way of eating like this is:
    Meat, fish, eggs, organ meat (offal) some dairy (cream, cheese butter and a little kefir or goatsmilk yog)
    I usually have a couple of squares of dark choc every day.
    I avoid large amounts of protein, so i reach satiety through added animal fats like butter, bacon fat, cream, and ocassionally (gasp) a bit of homemade olive oil mayo (which is of course veg origin)

    Drinks are water, maybe a herb tea a day, one cup of roast chicory ‘coffee’ a day. Sometimes a sodastream zero (sweetened by sucralose and stevia)

    Now, I don’t pretend to be absolute about this. Occasional meals out will see me eating half a tomato and a flat mushroom with my steak, and the odd chip has been known to sneak off Mr B’s plate and into my mouth...

    But overall, several days will pass without me eating anything vegetabley - and those have become the days on which I feel the best. It is WONDERFUL for my blood glucose levels. Bathroom events are also better than in my veg days. I am not constipated.

    We have just had several odd days, travelling, road food, eating out with family, and i am SO GLAD to be home and returning to pure carnivory. I feel better when I do.

    Oh, and for those who casually dismiss this way of eating as being ‘unbalanced’ or ‘deficient’ then I suggest that you do a bit more reading. I did, and no longer have such concerns. In fact, if you are interested, just look up the nutition in liver, it is the ultimate superfood.

    @NoCrbs4Me has been eating similiar for years with great success, I believe.
    I don't eat much veg as most interferes with my thyroid but leaves me anaemic if not enough beef eating.

    Every way of eating on the planet includes seasonal treats and variations.
    However, it is a leap to assume that those additions are necessary for health.

    A better way of looking at the situation is to ask whether the normal, non seasonal carnivorous way of eating will support good health.
    In my opinion it does, and this is supported by growing evidence and growing numbers of people who are living this way for years and decades.

    In light of this, seasonal variations and treats can be viewed as enjoyable, but not necessary.

    For anyone trying this remember you must not remove all the fat from
    the meat, and you need some fish or red meat. (100% skinless chicken will not work.)

    No, you don't need to eat seafood at all.
