New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Carnivore Diet – Vegetable Conflict?
hey guys I’m beginning a lot of questions on the carnivore diet and how it conflicts with my recommendation of seven to ten cups of vegetables so let’s just kind of talk about it I think the carnivore diet has its place I think a lot of people can benefit from it and maybe even you should try it to see if it makes you feel better but I want to give you some additional data I personally don’t do it I just feel really good on the combination of animal products and vegetables but if you have digestive problems if you get bloating you’ve constipation you definitely don’t want to do a lot of vegetables and some people do better on a smaller amount of vegetables so they can start building up their micro flora in here and if you have the condition called SIBO small intestinal bacterial overgrowth you don’t want to do a lot of vegetables because that’s going to feed the microbes that are in your small intestine but the benefit of this diet is that you’re dropping your insulin considerably so most people have high insulin so you’re going to drop that you’re going to improve a lot of conditions with the heart with the arteries with inflammation because it’s a zero carbohydrate diet okay so that’s really good also if you have constipation in your bowels are sluggish but reducing fiber you’re gonna instantly feel better okay but now let’s just look at the flip side some people say well animal products are more nutrient dense not necessarily true unless you’re consuming organ meats so if you’re doing the carnivore diet but you’re not doing liver or brain or heart or kidney or bone marrow and you’re just doing the meat the muscle okay only I think you’re making a big mistake let’s just take a look at one cup of kale versus three ounces of chicken versus three ounces of fish okay this is salmon potassium per cup is 375 milligrams okay but of course if I was gonna do a kale salad I would do at least five so at times this times five okay chicken has 220 milligrams of potassium fish has 300 milligrams of potassium so you say well I’m just going to eat a lot more fish there’s some people out there that are consuming two or three or four pounds of meat per day okay so we’re getting away from this moderate protein and we’re really doing a high-protein diet how you gonna keep your proteins moderate on this diet it’s gonna be very difficult okay there is a lot of data on excessive amounts of protein and decreasing your longevity I’ll put a link down below I think I may have done a video on that let’s look at magnesium one cup of kale will provide 7% of the requirements of magnesium okay three ounces of chicken will provide 6% and fish will provide 5% okay all right b6 will provide 10% from the kale chicken provides 25% and fish provide 25% so it’s gonna give you a lot more b6 but only 25% okay then we have iron 5% for kale 4% for chicken and 1% for fish all right now let’s look for vitamin C one cup of kale will give you a hundred and thirty four percent of your requirements okay that’s pretty high that’s just one cup chicken zero fish five percent but it does give you five percent okay vitamin D 0 from kale one percent from chicken zero from fish calcium 10% from kale one percent from chicken zero from fish vitamin A a hundred and thirty three percent now this is not the active form it’s a beta carotene it’s a pre vitamin A but still there’s a lot of benefits in phytonutrients so there’s anti-cancer properties in phytonutrients there’s not a lot of anti-cancer properties in meat that I know about but maybe there’s a study I haven’t seen one and then we have three ounces of chicken give you zero of vitamin A and four fish at zero carbs six grams but zero per chicken and zero for fish so vegetables give you the phytonutrients which have a lot of benefits health-wise that go beyond vitamins and minerals they also have vitamins and minerals so some vegetables have anti-nutrient properties in which they block certain thing okay like minerals if you consume fermented vegetables you will lessen those amounts but I have not seen a big problem with this right here as far as people becoming depleted when they consume vegetables but there is something called phytic acid which is an anti nutrient but phytic acid has very powerful anti-cancer properties another name for that is called ip6 a lot of research on that because one of the mechanisms it actually blocks iron which combines with something called the hydroxyl radical which is basically it’s a free radical that creates a lot of damage but it needs iron or copper but phytic acid can block that reducing the damage from this radical right here so it stabilizes that free radical it’s one of the only antioxidants that will do that and the thing about iron is true that animal products have a lot more absorbable iron now here’s the issue a lot of people have too much iron okay and too much iron is dangerous in the body it’s very reactive it creates a lot of free radical issues and very corrosive to your arteries and iron is not eliminated easily throughout the body so when we consume it it doesn’t go out through like a potassium dust so you tend to retain iron so these vegetables are gonna actually help balance this especially the ones that have phytic acid so we really don’t need the amount of iron unless you’re losing iron as a female because you’re menstruating each month maybe then have some more but for men I don’t recommend it anyway I wanted to give you my opinion on the carnivore diet I’m not saying it’s not a good thing for some people so you might want to try it on yourself to see if it benefits you so you can see from this chart there’s a large amount of vitamin C that kale has and other vegetables have so if you’re going to do the carnivore diet you may not need as much vitamin C and you’re also going to improve insulin sensitivity which is going to increase the absorption of all nutrients so that’s a really good thing but we don’t know the long-term effects of doing this yet time will tell vitamin C deficiencies take at least three months to show up even the first sign of a vitamin C deficiency which is fatigue so you might feel great for a period of time and then start feeling tired because you’re developing a vitamin C deficiency so these are just some points I wanted to bring up and talk about and if you’re gonna do a carnivore diet you might want to do more organ meats you may want to add some fermented vegetables like sauerkraut because that will totally give you way more about them and C than you need alright thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

If you have bloating, constipation, SIBO, or any kind of digestive problems, you definitely don’t want to do a lot of vegetables. One of the benefits of carnivore diet is lowers insulin that could improve a lot of conditions. Vegetable has Phytic Acid or IP6 is an anti-nutrient but it also have a very powerful anti-cancer properties. Doing the carnivore diet will improve insulin sensitivity which is going to increase the absorption of all nutrients.
Hey guys! I’ve been getting a lot of questions on the carnivore diet and how it conflicts with my recommendation of 7 to 10 cups of vegetables so let’s just kind of talk about it. I think the carnivore diet has its place, I think a lot of people can benefit from it and maybe even you should try it to see if it makes you feel better but I want to give you some additional data. I personally don’t do it I just feel really good on the combination of animal products and vegetables. But if you have digestive problems, if you get bloating, you’ve constipation, you definitely don’t want to do a lot of vegetables and some people do better on a smaller amount of vegetables so they can start building up their micro flora in here and if you have a condition called SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, you don’t want to do a lot of vegetables because that’s going to feed your microbes that are in your small intestine. But the benefit of this diet is that you’re dropping your insulin considerably so most of people have high insulin so you’re going to drop that and you are going to improve a lot of conditions with the heart, with the arteries, with inflammation because it’s a zero carbohydrate diet, so that’s really good. Also if you have constipation and your bowels are sluggish, by reducing fiber you’re gonna instantly feel better. But now let’s just look at the flip side. Some people, well, animal products are more nutrient dense. Not necessarily true unless you’re consuming organ meats. So if you are doing the carnivore diet, but you’re not doing the liver or brain or heart or kidney or bone marrow and you’re just doing the meat, the muscle only – I think you are making a big mistake. Let’s just take a look at one cup of kale versus 3 ounces of chicken, versus 3 ounces of fish, this is salmon. Potassium per cup is 375 milligrams. But of course if I was going to do a kale salad, I would do at least five so we times this times 5. Chicken has 220 milligrams of potassium, fish has 300 milligrams of potassium. So you’ll say “I’m just going to eat a lot more fish”, there’s some people out there that are consuming two or three or four pounds of meat per day. So we’re getting away from this moderate protein and we’re really doing a high-protein diet.
