Pooping on the carnivore diet. Oh yes. It is a marvel, the blessed doo doo. Allow me to explain. When our body transitions from one diet to another, the result in the pooping realm, is either constipation or diarrhea. I recently read Joe Rogan‘s account of his carnivore adventure. He described diarrhea in a fashion that I shall forever use from this day forward. Diarrhea, Joe Rogan explained, was a trust issue with his asshole. He said “I trust my butt hole about as much as I trust a shifty neighbor with a heavy Russian accent that asks a lot of personal questions”.

Pooping the Perfect Poo

Let’s hope you trust your butt hole a little more than Joe. Maybe you are confused about what your poo should look like on a carnivore diet. My cat, and fellow carnivore, may offer some insight into what you should see before the ceremonial flush.

You see, my cat eats raw food only. She poops every other day and nice little dainty turds. This is because her body uses all the nutrients from her diet. For humans, the same holds true for those on the carnivore diet. Except for the little dainty turd part.

Because meat is so nutrient-dense, our body absorbs much of the protein, vitamins, and minerals, leaving little to waste. Hence, less pooping. And, long, soft and fully formed is what you want to see in that porcelain commode.

If you want to check out what plops into the toilet, the Bristol Stool Chart is a great reference for examining the size and shape of your poo. A good poo is either Type 3 or Type 4 on the chart. If you are not in those ranges, you may have some gut issues.

What Your Poo is Telling You

Pooping on the carnivore diet may have you looking into the toilet more than ever before. It’s okay to be curious – the shape, stench and colour of that excellent crepe can be an indication that you’re ailing from more than you think.

You can gauge not only your gut health, but your overall health as well. Changes in your poop can be a more serious indication of something else going on.

Additionally, there should be consistency to your routine (every other day is fine) and absolutely no pain. As a matter of fact, there should be a great satisfaction to that dump and no need for reading material.

Diarrhea

Are you like Joe? Are you finding that you can’t trust your farts? Don’t fret my friends, if you are full carnivore and find that you can’t trust your farts, it might be time to cut back a little on the salt and possibly the fat. If that doesn’t work, digestive enzymes and HCL might be of some help too. For my fellow foxy lady and co-host of the website, it took her a whole 45 days for her body to adjust.

Constipation

Short bouts of constipation are normal. And treatable. A great remedy (don’t reach for those laxatives) is to consume more salt (we recommend Redmond Real Salt). Wait, what? I thought salt absorbed water and made you bloated. Total misconception. Kinda. Yes, salt does make you retain water however this will assist in getting the hydration in your colon for elimination purposes. Also, adding a Vitamin C supplement could help this backup.

Coffee and Pooping

Notice anything differently if you try to eliminate caffeine? That’s because caffeine works as a laxative. Not from the caffeine itself but from the result of the caffeine in our colon. The caffeine increases colon contractions. Thus, coffee = nice pooping. But I digress…

Perfect Poo on the Carnivore Diet

We hope this information has helped you figure out what to poop on the carnivore diet and what to do if it isn’t going quite as planned.

Information Overload

We are definitely living in a world of confusion. The internet has allowed information to flow into our minds as quickly as it takes to type in how does…… Like Marshall McLuhan said “the medium is the message”. What am I getting at and what does this all mean? Read on friends.

Insight

Good old Marshall McLuhan and his insight. I have never forgotten that book, Understanding Media and the Extensions of Man. In a nutshell, don’t dismiss how powerful the device as to which we are receiving our information is.

Manipulation is key and so is the dependence on our ignorance. When you read something, stop to figure out how it made you feel. Angry? Sad? Peaceful? Did it resonate with you? Take a moment to stop and wonder why. And thus, your journey into sifting through conflicting and hypocritical information will begin. Don’t be lost in a world of confusion!

Who do you trust?

You. That’s who. Only you can decide whether you can trust the information or the people as to whom the information is being delivered. Do your research and if something doesn’t make sense to you, compare information and make sure you understand the essence of that one particular word – it can make all the difference.

For example, the word “studies”. Did you know that this word is used by the medical community and their media deliverer (whatever that might be) so effectively that the mass population just assumes that “it must be true”.

Long Form Discussion

Youtube and podcasts have brought us a wonderful platform in which people can discuss freely (for the most part) their knowledge and have an excellent debate about controversial issues. Free speech without a political agenda (agenda setting in the media) provides a truly insightful discussion that isn’t marred by any outside influences.

These are known as long-form discussions. This helps you to think as well and make the proper decisions for yourself. Think, don’t lose the ability to THINK for yourself. Your values determine your interest and we lose sight of this by the manipulation of the medium and the message.

So What Am I Getting At?

When I started my ketogenic journey, I was confused by the conflicting information and I didn’t know who to trust. It’s maddening when I hear/see the information that is just wrong AND the methodology of the media and it’s minions to deliver the wrong message to support their ideology and political agenda.

But it’s ok. If we stop to think and do our research correctly, you will find your way and the truth. This is all a journey. And it isn’t easy. And there are a lot of institutions banking on your dependence on familiarity and obliviousness.

What’s Next?

Our next post will delve into regenerative agriculture and engineered animal proteins. We will describe the difference between regeneratively raised livestock and those raised in a concrete factory eating corn, soy………….

Tell us what you think.

Are you confused about diet, nutrition, and the carnivore diet?

What's The Carnivore Diet?

What’s the Carnivore Diet?

Some common questions I hear when I mention I’m eating a carnivore diet are “what’s the carnivore diet” and “when and why the heck would you want to eat like that?” The second question is usually one of concern by the inquisitor when they find out that I am eating only meat. Strict carnivores eat only meat and drink water. Some carnivore peeps add in cheese, coffee and some heavy whipping cream. Typically, someone following a carnivore diet will consume less that 5 grams of carbs per day with some dairy added in and zero carbs if they are eating only meat and hydrating with water.

What’s Included on a Carnivore Diet?

  • Fish
  • Seafood
  • Fowl
  • Beef
  • Pork
  • Lamb
  • Buffalo
  • Wild Game
  • Salt (we recommend Redmonds)
  • Limited amounts of dairy

History of the Diet

The archaeological record shows that early humans were meat eaters. Some cultures to this day, still follow a meat based diet. Some of them are:

A great book on the subject is The Fat of the Land by Vilhjalmur Stefansson. Stefannson was a Canadian polar explorer. He spent five years living in the Canadian Arctic with the Inuit, adapting to their way of life. Stefannson pushed an all meat diet in the early 1900’s. It never caught on then, but maybe times are changing?

Is a Carnivore Diet Healthy?

A carnivore diet is quite balanced. There are no essential foods, only essential nutrients. According to biochemist and Arctic nutrition expert Harold Draper, all the essential nutrients needed can be found in meat and sunlight. Even trace amounts of vitamin C can be found in animal products. That is all the body needs to prevent scurvy.

Are We Crazy?

From steak to swimsuit, we are using the power of a carnivore diet to do something that some might find a little crazy. We are refusing to age gracefully in silence. We have teamed up to bring our determination to the stage (literally). You may think that might be a good goal for someone younger with smoother skin and less stretch marks. Not us. We are empty nesters with grown children so we decided what better way to defy aging than to strut around on stage, wearing a few triangles and a spray on tan.

Age Doesn’t Define Us

We decided that age doesn’t, and shouldn’t define us. Age doesn’t have to dictate how we live or how we feel. Rather, age brings wisdom. We often wished we were as wise in our 20’s and 30’s as we are now. We have decided that pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone is just a mindset. At our age, wisdom brings confidence and courage. Therefore, we are maximizing this wisdom and courage to step outside the box and do the things that we have never done before. We are doing this with our heads held high, with no regrets and in very high heels.

From Steak to Swimsuits

How is steak going to help us get into those itty bitty bikinis? We are using the power of steak and the carnivore diet, to keep our hormones happy and to help us reach our goals. Traditionally at 50, our hormones start to go awry and muscle mass is even harder to attain. Common symptoms of menopause are increased fat mass and a decrease in muscle mass. This is not conducive to six pack abs. Even with that knowledge, we have seen amazing results in the past following a carnivore way of life.

The Power of a Carnivore Diet

Sandra and Steph both found the carnivore diet at different times and in different ways, but we have seen similar results. The brain fog and mood changes that accompany menopause dissipated with our carnivore way of life. Now, one of us will experience some hot flashes and/or sleep issues, but not much else. The diet helped stave off many of the negative effects of the hormone changes in our body. Because of this, we decided to take on the challenge of a bikini competition.

Eyes Wide Open

We have confidence in the carnivore diet and our nutrition to support us. That doesn’t mean we don’t have our reservations. We are nervous. The idea of parading around on a stage is flat out scary. Most people are afraid of being judged. We are planning to walk right out there wearing nothing but a tan, bling and triangles, for the sole purpose of being judged. Most of the time when we feel judged, it is just our imagination. When we walk on stage we will be judged by actual people who are going to score us on our bodies. If that’s not the epitome of intimidation, I’m not sure what is.

Because We Can

At this point you may be asking, “why in the world would you want to torture yourself like that?” Like Edmound Hillary once said when asked why he desired to climb Mount Everest, we do it because “It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves”. We are doing it because we want to prove to ourselves that we can. We have this idea of what our bodies can do with strength training and the carnivore diet. Dr. Shawn Baker and others are great examples of defying aging. Check out the stories at MeatRx to read about others successes with the carnivore way of eating.

Accountability

We have been toying with the idea of doing a bikini competition since we met on the Low Carb Cruise in 2019. With the new year upon us, we are suddenly faced with the reality of we need to “shit or get off the pot”, the reality of accountability. We must practice what we preach, after all. And we are women of our word. What started as “let’s do this for shits and giggles” has become a very serious undertaking.

New Year – New US

With the new year, came the realization that we are embarking on a physical and mental journey that we are going to be held accountable for. The excuses are over. It will take hard work and determination, mentally and physically. Not only will the workouts be hard, but we will have to be okay with revealing our vulnerabilities. But that’s why we started this in the first place.

The Challenge

We decided what better way to defy aging and use our well earned freedom and wisdom than to compete in a bikini competition while incorporating our carnivore lifestyle. Typically, training, or “prepping” is done by following a strict diet of carbs and protein with very little fat. You also eat 5 or 6 times a day. For us, the intention is to train for this competition while eating a carnivore diet. You might ask what is a carnivore diet? Well, this is a 100% animal protein diet with zero carbs. Our only vice? Coffee…because we are addicts. Challenged by our only crutch (caffeine addiction), we are venturing out on this journey together. Supporting each other and anyone else who wants to join us!

This is Scary Shit

The idea of doing something for ourselves that might help others, especially women suffering from hormonal imbalances or lack of confidence is our fuel. Yes, this started out as a moment of fun – as a possibility – but now we are ready for what is to come. Shits and Giggles…literally…bring it on!!!
