Carnivore Diet: How To Get Enough Fat
This is an interesting question because the carnivore diet, in its purest form, is animal products, primarily fat and protein.
Sure, if you think a carnivore diet should consist of white meat, like fish and chicken, and turkey, you will have problems getting enough fat.
That’s not the best way to do a carnivore diet. Lean meats are lean because they lack many of the essential fatty acids and minerals your body needs.
Let’s compare a steak to a chicken breast here. You can see how much better red meat is than white meat, and it’s not even close.
So the simplest way to get enough fat in your diet is to prioritize red meat, wild game, and fatty fish.
Bison, beef, game, salmon, sardines, clams, oysters, mussels, kippers, mackerel, duck, and anything else that is closer to the dark/red meat of the spectrum.
Opt for ribeyes and strips as your ideal meal option + maybe some whole eggs.
Consider some butter.
Then eat these nutrient-dense foods until satiety, and you’ll never have to worry about fat intake again (or protein intake, for that matter).
This version of carnivore will have you somewhere in the following ranges.
25%-45% of calories from protein55%-75% of calories from fat
It’s simple as that.
Lean white meats should complement your diet, not the main course.
