    All Meat Diet- Long Term Effects?

    Shop Now
    Has any one had any experience with a long-term all meat "zero carb" (yes, that's impossible, meat has carbs)? I only did it for a week. Has anyone here done it strictly for at least a year? Were there any negative effects? Positive experience? The reason I ask is because I was surfing the "Zeroing in on Health" forum, and it seems very heavily moderated, so I couldn't tell if anyone was having any negative experiences with ZC.

    The primary concern I would have is that you wouldn't be providing any prebiotics (ie, fiber) to nurture your gut flora.

    Wait, I did just rum into a problem that a few of the zero carbers posted in a forum- achy joints, and they were going to take fish oil to help. Hmm, why wouldn't they just eat fish?
    @raney- did you go zero carb for a long period of time?

    Peggy at The Primal Parent | Primal parenting our paleo kids has been on a near zero carb diet for several years. She's done a few posts on it and she is vibrantly healthy, not to mention hot as hell.

    Here's the link to the article which would be most relevant:

    Check out this blog as well: Hyperlipid I haven't read it in a long time but he eats a very high meat diet so I'm sure you could get some insight there.

    ZOIH forum is for meat only though the owner of the site got into homemade ice cream for a while. Last pics I saw of him he looked like he was gaining a few pounds. He mostly eats meat and drinks water AFAIK.

    I tried it for 8 months. I did lose weight. I also had chronic diarrhea which could strike at any time, any place, without warning. My supplement was Immodium AD. (Kinda like being on that Alli diet) Not good for me.
