What is the Carnivore Diet?
The carnivore diet is an “animal products only” diet. The carnivore diet allows for:
- Meat (including organ meat)
- Animal fats (such as tallow and lard)
- Select dairy products (such as butter, cheese, and heavy cream; dairy products that contain carbs, like milk, should be excluded)
The carnivore diet excludes:
- Nuts and seeds
- Processed foods
Many on carnivore choose to also consume small amounts of spices, herbs, and coffee.
