Summary "Shawn Baker's carnivore diet is a revolutionary, paradigm-breaking nutritional strategy that takes contemporary dietary theory and turns it on its ear. This diet breaks just about all the "rules" and delivers outstanding results that address common chronic issues, such as prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, anxiety and depression, PCOS, arthritis, and many other ailments of our modern world. At the heart of the diet is a focus on subtraction rather than addition, which makes this an incredibly effective and easy-to-follow nutritional plan. The Carnivore Diet reviews some of the supporting evolutionary, historical, and nutritional science that gives us clues about why so many people are having great success with this meat-focused way of eating. It highlights dramatic real-world transformations experienced by people of all types. This diet often reverses common disease conditions that have a reputation for being lifelong and progressive. Dr. Baker discusses some of the theory behind that phenomenon and outlines a strategy for incorporating the carnivore into your life as a tool to improve your health or as an ongoing eating style. He offers a thorough discussion of the most common misconceptions about this diet, pitfalls some people face when transitioning to it, and solutions for overcoming those challenges."--Back cover.
