CORRECTION: Shawn Baker has been doing the carnivore diet for about 2 years, not 7. (He started experimenting with low carb paleo about 7 years ago)

This video is a break down of what I thought to be common concerns when it comes to the carnivore diet, recently popularized by Jordan Peterson & His daughter Mikhaila Peterson. Some might call it «extreme» or «dangerous» or «a really bad idea,» but is it? Many people are having several health conditions healed by eating this diet, some are having improvements despite having been doing a paleo diet or keto diet.

People are having relief from arthritis, psoriasis, and various inflammatory conditions, and yes they are experiencing weight loss too.

But what about nutrients? Isn’t a lack of vitamin C going to give them all scurvy? What about constipation due to no fiber? And why would cutting out plants heal people? This is what the video addresses.
