Frequently Asked Questions
When will I start seeing results?
If I go off this diet, will I gain the weight back?
Can I build muscle and lose fat at the same time?
Absolutely. Not only are there studies where people have been able to build muscle while losing fat, it's actually a commonly reported result of following a low carb, high protein diet. Combined with resistance training, increases in lean mass and decreases in fat mass are often noted.
Do I need to eat carbs for energy or to be healthy?
No. The body does use glucose for certain essential functions, but if you eat enough protein your body is perfectly capable of producing its own glucose through a process known as gluconeogenesis. Therefore, there is no need to consume carbohydrates. Using ketones (fat) for fuel is a cleaner fuel source for the brain and body compared to glucose. Many people report enhanced mental clarity and focus on low carb diets because of this.
Is this a healthy diet? Aren't meat and saturated fat bad for you?
Eating a variety of wild caught fish, pasture raised eggs, properly raised meat, and grassfed dairy is absolutely healthy. Supplementing magnesium is also a good idea on this diet. Pay close attention to your omega-3s, micronutrients, Vitamins A&D, and electrolytes.
Does this program require a gym membership?
No. While my preferred method of exercise is weight training and I cover a weight training program in the Carnivore Shredding Program--it is not necessary to lift weights. Any form of exercise will yield results, whether it's yoga, swimming, playing a sport, etc.
Can I have a cheat day?
Is this a ketogenic diet?
Does this come with free consultations?

How long will it take to adapt to this diet?
Two to three weeks. When the body stops running predominantly on glucose (carbs) and begins burning fat for fuel, there is new metabolic machinery that must be developed in the mitochondria, liver, and other parts of the body. It takes a few weeks to become an efficient fat burner--meaning that for the first week or two of a low carb diet, you may feel weak and sluggish but then the body begins ramping up its fat burning.
