    I must admit, sous vide for liver had crossed my mind too. My OH doesn't care for it, so I only really have in when I'm on my own, and my cooking of it can be a bit hit and miss. Sometimes it's beautiful, or it can be like rhino hide.

    When you're on carni, when are you returning blood scores of 5.7? I'm astonished you go that high. (High being a totally relative term, as opposed to a blanket judgement.)

    It was an FBG after a particularly disturbed nights sleep I think.. 23 May.
    Dinner the night before was a liver, bacon, egg, chipolata fry up.. so nothing particularly carby... no raspberries etc.. was only the once.. also had a 5.6 but that was an FBG too. I seem to be particularly susceptible to DP after a not so good nights sleep.

    So I experimented with vegetables on Friday and Saturday in place of organs. This morning I feel weak, bloated, and generally suboptimal. That’s it for me, I’m done with cellulose. I will stick to consuming what my body is made of - fat and protein. Consider me officially hypercarnivore until further notice.

    Back after camping in Wales for half term.

    Only 2lbs down in 10 days but that’s probably down to increased egg consumption, cheese that I’ve not been eating for a while and more cream than in the last few weeks.
    I had a huge protein craving yesterday and today too.

    The carnivory continues...

    Is there a June thread?

    Couldn't think of a suitable alliterative title... maybe just carry on here.. we could call it Carnivore Corner?

    Or I guess we could start a new Carnivore Corner thread and leave it at that?

    Perhaps I can bookend this topic with a recommendation for a show I have just started watching on Netflix called Meat Eater. It’s all about hunting in the wild, and eating the kills. It won’t interest everyone but I find it fascinating.
