What If You Only Ate Meat?


2.5 million years ago we first began to eat
meat.
Prior to that our ancestors ate a vegan diet of berries and flowers and only when early
hominins began to eat more seeds and nuts, therefore taking in higher levels of fat
and less fiber did our bodies begin to adapt to handle meat.
But what would happen if now you ONLY ate
meat?
Without fiber rich foods like lentils, beans,
and broccoli you are going to feel constipated
and uncomfortable.
Not to mention, the simplest way for the body
to make energy is to convert carbohydrates
into glucose.
In the absence of carbs your body will have
to burn fat and break down important proteins.
Creating glucose from protein is known as
gluconeogenesis, and it occurs in the liver,
creating a nitrogen waste that is converted
into urea.
Too much can lead to protein poisoning – which
includes symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, and
potentially death.
It’s even been documented if you ate only
a lean meat like rabbit, which has hardly any
fat, you could eat and eat and eat and still
end up wasting away.
Another potential killer could be the lack
of Vitamin C. Humans are one of the few animals
that are not able to synthesize the Vitamin
on their own.
Without easy access to Vitamin C from fruits
and veggies your body will be unable to effectively
create collagen, a structural protein found
in your tendons, ligaments and skin.
This will put you at high risk of scurvy and
cause you to have poor wound healing, rotting
gums and personality changes.
If not treated you would die from infection
or bleeding.
But eating raw meat could be the way around
this.
The cooking of meat degrades most of the Vitamin C, but raw, thick, chewy collagen rich skin
and blubber of whales can take in 36mg of
Vitamin C per 100g serving.
Way more than the 10mg needed to fight off
scurvy.
This brings us to an interesting case: shaped
by low temperatures and a stark environment,
a traditional Inuit diet consisted of what
was hunted and fished with little, if any,
plant food, dairy products, or carbohydrates.
Despite this, cardiac death rates were half
that of other Americans and Canadians.
How can you be healthy on a fatty diet without
any fruits and vegetables?
You can snack on organ meat like liver to
get your recommended Vitamin A, which is vital for
eyes and bones and Vitamin D (for your bones
too). And Oily fish rich in omega-3 fatty
acids will benefit your heart and vascular
system.
Inuit bodies have adapted to manage gluconeogenesis
by having larger livers and increased volumes
of urine to get rid of the extra urea.
A recent genetic study investigated the genome
of Greenland Inuit and found a selection for
variants that create a protective effect against
cholesterol and triglycerides.
So, it is possible to thrive on only meat
but it’s important to remember that Northern
communities have relied on animal food out
of circumstance and necessity.
Their high fat diet was intended to keep weight
on for days of hunting, and when food was
insecure, not lose weight like modern low
carb diets.
Unless you are planning on eating raw whale
blubber, organ meat, and have genetics on
your side consider sticking to a balanced
diet of all the major food groups.

    Even just two days of an all protein diet left me feeling sick and constipated. Had to check this video out. I can tell you that just eating meat and eggs definitely fills you up, but your mind and body start to go sugar crazy, even if you don't eat much added sugar. I was hard-core craving oranges, which makes sense.

    first of all when rabbit starvation (protein poisoning) is due to a lack of fats its even written in Wikipedia you don't have to look at scientific evidence to see that, you will not break down organs and muscle on a carnivore diet if you are consuming high amounts of fat and organ meat. a good amount of vitamin c is in the organs therefore it's stupid to claim you will be vitamin c deficient and also glucose metabolism and vitamin c metabolism are competing so on a diet that has little to no glucose you will absorb the vitamin c better. the lipid hypothesis has not been proven beyond all doubt and most studies supporting it are observational therefore we cannot claim that the genetics does not allow us to thrive on that diet, also if you come from a place where most of your ancestors ate meat you will probably be adapted to this kind of diet and i think you should do your n = 1 experiment, and look at frank tufano, tristan from primal edge health, the dude from carneval, mikhaila peterson, jorden peterson, shawn baker and more who are thriving on a carnivore

    0:24 That’s a myth spread by the FDA. This is not the case. A study was done, and those on a high fiber diet had the most problems and a bowel movement only every 6.83 days. Those on a carnivore diet had no problems on the to islet and one bowel movement per day.

    0:34 and the rest about gluconeogensis. If you are eating fatty meats, which is a good idea, you will go into ketosis. This means that your body’s primary source of energy will be fat and ketones, not glucose. Obviously some amount of gluconeogenesis will be going on, but it will definitely not cause protein poisoning.

    1:07 Vitamin C is actually found in animal tissue, and is abundant in organ meats, especially liver. Anyways, glucose competes with vitamin C for use, so in the absence of glucose, the efficiency of the use of vitamin C will increase greatly.

    The appendix, found in many carnivorous animals is used to digest raw meat. Before it was much larger in early human beings.
    In this case scientists are found to believe that the human race began as a carnivorous species, but due to a decline in animals(likely because of hunting), through evolution the appendix became the size that is now within the human body.

    Higher Vitamin C is needed for carb consumption. Same for thiamine or niacin, when consuming carbs.
    To avoid protein sickness, eat 70% animal fats to 20% animal protein.
    The 8% egg/dairy, 2% kelp and blueberries.

    So instead of eating rabbit muscle, target only it's fat: brain, spinal cord, fat deposits, toss or jerky the rest.

    The fiber consumption to prevent constipation is a myth. Fat consumption is the trick.
    And a recent study with 0 fiber consumed healed constipation sufferers 100% compared to controlled groups.

    The Arctic is not Antarctica! Eskimos also eat plants! Few greens has to eat! The lichens in the reindeer's stomach. And Fermented Plants. For this lifestyle over the centuries The digestive system has adapted. But In fact, data collected over many decades showed that coronary artery disease is common in Greenland's Inuit population. Heart disease is as frequent — or even more so — among native northern populations as it is for other populations. Strokes are particularly common, and life expectancy overall was found to be about a decade shorter among native populations. https://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2015nl/apr/eskimos.htm
