    Vegatarians, vegans will love this.

    Carnivore diet
    Bit extreme, but probably no more so than some of the other diets that have done the rounds.

    "Beef for lunch, beef for dinner and perhaps a little bone broth for breakfast sounds like a foodie's nightmare, but the so-called "carnivore diet" has been gaining traction ó on social media at least.

    Key points:

    • The carnivore diet allows the consumption of animal products and water
    • A growing number of people claim health benefits such as reduced inflammation
    • Experts warn eating five food groups daily is best practice




    Expunging everything except meat and animal products, the carnivore diet has been heavily promoted this year by former United States military trauma and orthopaedic surgeon Shawn Baker, who has been eating up to 2.7 kilograms of meat daily since early 2017."

    yeah it's possible. you get your essential minerals, vitamins, and salts from the broth, blood, and organ meats. the inuits and the maasai tribe in kenya live similarly - they eat everything the animal gives them.

    Yep, I think the emphasis is on "everything"...
    Otherwise you will miss out on a lot of essential nutrients.

    Yeah, and its one I practice. I eat at Maccas, KFC, Dominos, Subway and Nandos.

    On a serious note, I am happy to let anyone pursue their own diet choices but for some, veganism entitles them to a form of activism or at least dogma: "I've chosen not to consume any animal products, why haven't you?"
    I once shared a house with a practicing vegan who would stand there wearing Doc Martens and leather jacket complaining about my meat based meals.

    True vegans donít wear leather as itís an all encompassing lifestyle rather than just a diet. Not sure what the muppet you lived with was in about. The righteous ones (of any type) drive me mad too.

    True but at the time veganism was a bit of a new thing and thee weren't as many choices as now.

    And why do they taste so good?

    They were born to be delicious. Pork crackling, apple sauce and roast vegetables.

    I rest my case.

    I'm very suspicious of dietary advice which on the surface sounds plausible but in reality can cause great upsets in lifestyle but health.

    The paleo diet, the latest fad, by an anti-vaccine chef venturing outside his expertise into medicine.

    Then there's one of the first ones, the old Israeli army diet. Kiss your weight problem goodbye --and your health too.

    Like everything else, it's about moderation and food diversity.

    Calories do count (Believe me, I count them every damn day). And eating tons of meat exclusively will stack on tons of calories.

    Having said that, I love the occasional barbecued T-bone and 100% pure, nothing but pork sausages barbecued.

    Not a strict vego of any description but appreciate the benefits some people can get from red meat intake restriction, during the work week cutting it out comes with benefits, but come the weekend... from my current favourite blocal burger place...CharliesBBQ_BOTM.jpg

    Gotta smile, Australia officially stopped using the term calorie in 1988, still we use it.

    kilojoule is such a clumsy word.

    Bit like metric, go to your local hardware, you can still buy imperial bolts and nuts.

    Calorie is nice...it has a nasty ring to it once you get to a certain BMI though.

    A nice simple unit, the energy to heat 1 gram of water, one degree celsius.
