We’ve got to get excited about this, it’s carnivore time. Like we’re going to do two weeks of the carnivore diet and we’re going to see what it does to our bodies, what it does to our minds, how we feel. This is completely unbiased. This is flat out self-experimentation at its finest, and I hope that you’re joining in with me. This is Day One, and I want to do everyone a service by breaking down a sample meal plan. Now the nice thing is, with carnivore, the meal plans are pretty darn simple. However, there are some things you need to be paying attention to, specifically because carnivore is all about an anti-inflammatory immunological response. We’re trying to get the body back down to baseline. So there’s certain spices you want to avoid, and I recommend a specific sequence with different types of meats throughout the day in order to get the best response. I’m going to break it all down for you so you have the goods to get through this with me, so I invite you to join me on two weeks of carnivore, starting now.
All right, so let’s get to this. First of all, the carnivore diet is all about getting your body back down to baseline. When you don’t have a lot of things coming in, your immune system seems to relax a little bit. This is the whole premise behind carnivore. It’s not about just eating as much meat as you can. It’s not about just increasing your carbon footprint or anything like that. It’s nothing to do with that. It’s all about basically an autoimmune paleo type approach where we are just limiting so many different things that our body actually comes back down to baseline. You see a lot of anti-inflammatory effects. Dr. Shawn Baker is really the guy who invented the carnivore diet and he knows a lot of what of he’s doing. Let’s go ahead and do this.
First off, I do want to say that if you’re doing the carnivore challenge, there is a special offer from ButcherBox down in the description for anyone that’s doing this challenge. Extreme discounts on meat bundles from ButcherBox that you can get delivered right to your doorstep. I’m a huge fan of Butcher Box. They’re a huge part of this channel to begin with, but they’re really throwing it out to everybody for this particular challenge so if you want to get your meat cheaper and don’t want to have to do a huge grocery haul, please take advantage of it down in the description. Huge thank you to you guys at ButcherBox.
ll right, so here’s how I want you to start your day. I am a big fan of doing apple cider vinegar right when you start your day. You roll out of bed, I always start my day with apple cider vinegar. You do a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 10 to 12 ounces of water along with a little pinch of pink Himalayan salt or Redmond Real Salt, just a good high quality salt, and then you really don’t need to add a whole lot more. You can add a little bit of lemon if you want to, but let’s go ahead and omit that from this particular challenge. Normally I would also say add cayenne pepper, but cayenne is typically a nightshade, which is pretty inflammatory, so we’ll keep it simple. Salt, apple cider vinegar, maybe a tiny bit of stevia, and some water. That’s how you start your day. Then you’re going to go ahead and you’re going to do your workout, whatever you need to do. I’ll talk about workouts later in this video.
So meal number one, I want you to keep it very lean protein. Again, with carnivore, there’s not a whole lot of variables, but I do want you to keep your protein sources very lean. I’m talking about a lean poultry or a lean fish in this particular case. Now you can use salmon if it’s sockeye salmon. Sockeye salmon is pretty darn lean naturally to be completely honest, and right now with ButcherBox, you can get some good sockeye salmon, so you’ll be in good shape. The reason I want you to keep it lean is it allows you to use your fats from your stored body fat a little bit better.
