The Power of the Carnivore Diet

First things first, let’s talk about why the carnivore diet is gaining so much popularity within the ketogenic community. For those of you who are new to the scene, the carnivore diet is a subset of the ketogenic diet, where you solely feast on fatty meats. It’s no secret that both keto and carnivore diets have incredible anti-inflammatory effects. Joint inflammation, gut inflammation, skin inflammation – they all improve when you embrace these diets.

The Role of Vitamin C

Now, let’s cut to the chase and address the vitamin C concern. Here’s the thing: when you’re on a low-carb, inflammation-reducing diet like carnivore or keto, your body simply doesn’t require as much vitamin C as you might think. You see, vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, fighting off those pesky free radicals and reducing inflammation. But when your overall inflammation levels are low, thanks to your new way of eating, you don’t need as many antioxidants.

Goodbye Supplements, Hello Meat

Now, here’s the part that will make you grin. Guess what? Most meat contains a little bit of vitamin C, even the lean cuts. That means that if you’re chowing down on that juicy steak or tender piece of pork, you’re getting a touch of vitamin C right there. In fact, just by consuming the flesh of animals, you’ll most likely never have to worry about scurvy. And trust me, the carnivore diet isn’t some newfangled experiment. It’s been around for a while, and those who have embraced strict carnivore eating for years have never experienced scurvy or any other vitamin deficiency.

The Secret Lies in the Liver

Now, if you’re still concerned about getting enough vitamin C while on the carnivore diet, I’ve got a secret for you – liver is the answer. Whether it’s pork liver, beef liver, or even chicken liver, these organ meats are chock-full of vitamin C. Pork liver takes the crown for having the highest vitamin C content, followed by beef liver and then chicken liver. So, if you can get your hands on some pork liver from your local butcher, you’re golden. Beef liver is also a fantastic option, while chicken liver might require a bit more frequent consumption to get enough vitamin C.

Ready to take on the carnivore challenge and see what all the fuss is about? I say go for it! The carnivore diet is not just safe but also ancestrally appropriate. Look at the Inuit, the Scandinavian, and the Nordic tribes – these folks thrived on a predominantly meat-based diet. And guess what? They didn’t have scurvy or any other health issues. So, my friends, embrace the carnivore lifestyle and enjoy the benefits.
