Interview with Christopher
1) Introduce Yourself.
My name is Christopher Nance aka Carnivorous Beast, I am 32 years old from Cornwall, UK. I am currently a Corporal in the Royal Air Force.
2) How did you eat before Carnivore.
I used to eat the typical bodybuilding diet, low fat, high carb, lots of sugar laden protein shakes, pastas, breads and lots of lean meat, I then went paleo/keto for a short period before going Carnivore.
3) Why did you try Carnivore to begin with.
It was actually my partner who introduced me to Carnivore, I initially disregarded it but I decided why not give it a go for a month and see how it goes, now 11 months down the road I’m still Carnivore
4) How do you personally approach the Carnivore Diet.
I initially started Carnivore eating all meat, eggs and dairy, after about 4 months I decided to eliminate dairy as I was still getting skin issues, as soon as I eliminated dairy my skin issues reduced dramatically
5) What benefits have you seen since starting the Carnivore Diet.
Benefits I have seen is mental clarity, I had suffered with mental health issues and I am now completely off any medication, I have also been able to read 15 books so far this year (I could barely read 1 book a year in previous years). I also dropped a lot of body fat starting at 95kg, I am currently 78.2kg, I also feel very energetic and overall sleep better, my skin also has improved – I used to have eczema but no longer have it.
6) What negatives have you found with the Carnivore Diet.
The biggest negative is fitting it in an everyday life, its difficult to eat out at restaurants or someone’s home. Also having to constantly defend my diet to people stuck in the conventional way of thinking
7) Do you exercise on the Carnivore Diet, if so how do you find it and what do you do.
I exercise 5-6 times a week I have had a varied gym background coming from Powerlifting to Strongman to strength training and I am now focusing on bodybuilding, my workouts are usually Weightlifting with occasional cardio.
8) What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in trying this diet, but hasn’t taken the leap yet.
Make sure you are ready for it, it’s difficult to come from a standard Western diet with high sugar processed foods to completely eliminating them, I always recommend going paleo first to get used to eating real food then trying keto to become fat adapted and then going Carnivore
9) Do you think Carnivore will ever be accepted as a mainstream diet.
My hope is that it would but I just don’t see it happening, unlike Vegan diets which can be mass produced and profitable for big brands meats are difficult to heavily manufacture.
10) Anything you would like to add, and where can people follow you.
Carnivore has been great for me and I stand by it but I recognise it isn’t for everyone, I also highly recommend Paleo and Keto. I am on YouTube as Carnivorous Beast and on Instagram as @carnivorousbeast
