The carnivore diet is all the rage right now, with some outspoken advocates telling us that all plants are “bad for us” and that meat heals. I’ve written a blog post titled Why the Carnivore Diet is Probably Bad for you and What to try Instead, so my views as they apply to most people are no secret. Having said that, it’s clear the carnivore diet offers benefits for some people. Why would certain individuals be healthier eating nothing but meat? In this episode of the podcast, we go beyond the usual diet wars and instead focus on genetic traits that could signal either success or failure on a carnivore diet. Our guest, L. Amber O’Hearn is one of the original carnivores. She created the Carnivore Diet Conference and credits an all meat diet with healing her bipolar disorder. Amber was a great sport to come on the show and there is a lot we can learn from the research she has done. Tune in for a nuanced discussion on the carnivore diet.
