Interview with David
1) Introduce Yourself.
My name is David Zamoider
2) How did you eat before Carnivore.
I ate whatever I felt like for years, with various dalliances in low carb, including 2 years off and on just before I tried carnivore.
3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.
Keto wasn’t cutting it for me anymore. It was too easy to overindulge in keto foods under the guise of low net carbs.
4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.
I started by eating just meat when I was hungry, and incorporating fasts of various lengths, as a way to test myself. I had decided at the beginning I would be the John Wick of carnivore, a man of sheer focus and force of will, and that I wouldn’t cheat and I wouldn’t quit. As I progressed I discovered how effective OMAD was for me, and that is where I have been for the last several months, the majority of my time as a carnivore. I eat meat, fat salt and water, but I don’t discriminate on the type of meat, I eat anything that sounds good, steak, burgers, chicken, pork, bacon, lamb, goat, and organ meats to name a few. I use exclusively Redmonds kosher salt.
5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.
In 10 months I have lost almost 140 lbs, reversed a number of inflammatory conditions including Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and vastly improved my mental health.
6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.
I have found no negatives. I eat as much as I want til I’m full. I rarely miss sweets or carbs, when I do I drink water and move on. I don’t feel restricted at all, the only semi difficulty is getting enough food when out to eat with family or friends at restaurants, most places load food with sugar or carbs or fry them in veggie oil.
7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.
I did not at the beginning. Covid was part of that, but when the gyms opened here in June my wife and I signed up, and my health improved even further and now I’m in the gym 7 days a week.
8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.
Give it a try, what do you have to lose? You have to go into it with an open mind, and fully commit. It will not work for you if you half ass it.
9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.
I believe if research can be done, it will become more accepted, it’s a ways away, but it’s possible.
10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.
There is no one size fits all approach to eating. You have to find what works for you and run with it. Strip yourself down to just meat and water and after a few months add things back in one at a time and see how your body responds and adjust accordingly. No one has your body but you.
