The carnivore diet, sometimes confused with the animal-based diet, is something our family has been following for a while now, and we're loving it! But we often get quizzical looks when we mention it - almost as if we've announced we're moving to Mars. So, let's demystify this a bit.

What is a Carnivore Diet vs Animal-Based Diet?

A carnivore diet involves consuming primarily meat and other animal products, excluding all other food groups like vegetables, fruits, and grains. On the other hand, an animal-based diet, while still focused on animal products, allows for some plant foods. It's more of a balanced approach, combining the best of carnivorous eating with a touch of plant-based nutrition

Health Benefits

An animal-based diet can offer many health benefits. High in protein, it supports muscle growth and repair. It's also low in carbs, which can help manage blood sugar levels and aid weight loss. Plus, it provides essential nutrients like B12, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids that are abundant in animal products

Not All Meat Is Created Equal

However, the source of your meat matters greatly. Animals raised on pastures and fed with grass have meat that is leaner and contains higher amounts of beneficial nutrients compared to grain-fed counterparts. Grass-fed meat is lower in calories, contains more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, more antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E, and more conjugated linoleic acid - a type of fat that's thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks
