Here you guys go! I’m not going to delve into the results here quite yet (I will when I get my vitamin/ micronutrients test back. BUT, you can listen to Robb Wolf’s podcast where we discuss these results HERE.)

These were done in December, a year after a high fat, all beef diet.

Basically, I’m all good. Except for my Vitamin D levels but that’s not because of the diet. That’s most likely a side effect of whatever the underlying problem here is.

One year eating approximately 75% of my calories from beef fat and my cholesterol is normal.

*(My BUN is high because I was most likely dehydrated. Creatinine is normal so no problems with my kidneys according to the specialists who gave me a run down of the panel. They were surprised I’m in such good shape after the diet.)

    Your Vitamin D deficiency is partly due to your diet, because muscle meat contains none.
    I had the same issue and fixed it with liver once a week.
    If you don’t want to do that, get some good dehydrated beef liver or brain capsules, open the gelatin shell and put the powder on your prepared meal before eating it.
    Helps with nutrient absorption and you don’t taste the organ meat. Sun exposure makes barely any difference to counter dietary deficiencies.

      I’ve been deficient since I was 7. I eat 1kg of liver per week on average 🙂

        Just got to listen to the podcast. You mentioned that after these results, they recommended you start eating 1 pound of liver (0,45 kg) per week to take care of the deficiency, and that you haven’t done that before, which was my point.

        That you’ve been deficient as a kid is unfortunate, but not the issue here since regardless of what “underlying issues” there might be, if you don’t take in enough vit d, there’s nothing for your body to restore it’s levels with either way (happens a lot on omnivorous diets as well).
        My point is that nutrient density is the unique selling point of a carnivore diet and as important, if not more, as it’s ability to remove inflammatory foods from your diet. It deserves much more attention.
        That being said, I’m glad you were advised and willing to try incorporating organ meats into your diet,
        hope you’ll see great benefits from it and get the word out there about it.

        If anyone else would like to get a better insight into the exact vitamin, mineral content etc. of their food, this database provides comprehensive lists of different types of foods, the current link listing the vitamin content of 0,45 kg (1pound) of raw beef liver:

        In order to look up more meats, google the german word for it an put it in the search bar 🙂

          loads of sunlight should do the trick as well of course

        I’ve been 100% carnivore for 15 years and never experienced any deficiency whatsoever. Meat and fat supplies everything. I’m in excellent health…200lb robust male

          Never listen to doctors regarding health and never get anything tested. All numbers regarding levels of this vitamin, that vitamin, cholesterol etc are arbitrary….made up. Just eat animal fat and protein, never touch plants and your body will do the rest. Trust it and trust nothing else. There is after all only one truth.

            Do you get lots of sunlight?



          • Dane Thomas on March 4, 2019 at 1:40 pm

            No more than the average I would guess…Northern Europe location. Although I do love the sun and when I can I get my top off…no chemicals added to skin of course.

    I had to go to iTunes to listen to the podcast—did not see how to play on Robb Wolf’s page you linked to.

    Have you ever tried cod liver oil ? I know a lot of them have fractionated vegetable oil in them I didn’t feel right after taking that kind but you can get pure cod liver oil, I felt really good since ive been taking it and I would say my skin looks a lot healthier. I think it has a lot to do with low vit d. I would definitely say my health always seems to get worse in Autumn/winter
