Carnivore Diet: is it healthy to eat only meat?

What do you think about eating meat, just meat and still improve your productivity and mental clarity, boost your libido, and control your blood pressure? Well, that's what the followers of the carnivore diet believe in, and the basis of this diet is just meat, offal, and eggs (some include fish and cured cheese) and no vegetable or plant-based foods or any kind of supplement.

It is totally the opposite of the vegan diet. Carnivore diet is based in high protein and saturated fats and no carbohydrates, and there is no defined protocol for the number of proteins and fats to be ingested.

In some countries, people have migrated from the low carb and ketogenic diet to the carnivore diet, and one of the most famous adepts of this diet is Shawn Baker. In his profile on social media, he said that the diet is very easy because he does not need meal plans or counting calories. "I just have to think about how hungry I am and how many steaks I want to eat," he said.

Followers of this diet say...

The Pioppi Diet and the truth about fats and the risk of cardiovascular disease

 

See a summary of my interview with Dr. Aseem Malhotra - famous cardiologist and writer of The Pioppi Diet.

Here are the main points:

- People generally have misconceptions and distortions about eating, for example, believe that consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and death, which is a myth.

- The current diet of the majority of the population contains much more carbohydrate than is healthy for our body and this causes many problems.

- Dr. Aseem reveals to us that medicine is not an exact science, and it is in constant advances and updates and we need to update ourselves.

- Dr. Aseem Malhotra explains that current research and studies show that the consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol does not block your arteries.

- One of the biggest villains to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease is insulin resistance caused by excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates, sugars, and also influenced by sedentary lifestyle,...

Vitamin deficiencies: what are the main signs and symptoms?

Vitamins are called essential micronutrients because they are necessary to the body in small amounts, but they are essential for the maintenance of good health.

The body does not store most of the vitamins. The deficiency of these vitamins usually develops in weeks to months. Therefore, people should consume them regularly. Vitamins A, B12, and D are stored in significant amounts, especially in the liver. Vitamins A and D are also stored in adipose cells.

Some vitamins (A, D, E and K) are liposoluble. Others, like vitamins B and C, are water-soluble. B vitamins include biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin (vitamin B2), thiamine (vitamin B1) and vitamins B6 (pyridoxine) and B12 (cobalamines).

The state of nutritional deficiency occurs when the intake of nutrients does not correspond to the needs for optimal health of an individual. With this, there are some signs and symptoms that we should be aware of.

Some examples of nutritional deficiencies of the major vitamins:
