Started a carnivore diet July 2019. A typical day of eating includes a lunch of 12-ounce beef rump steak or lamb and 2 hard-boiled eggs. Dinner is typically 2 patties (lamb or beef) with a little parmesan and salt in them, 2 small slices of hard cheese and 2 eggs fried in butter or ghee. Rarely snacks but if he does it's pork rinds or homemade beef jerky.
Does intermittent fasting daily with an 8-hour eating window. He does not eat before midday and no food after 8 pm. Fasts for 22 hours on Mondays. Does extended fasts 1-2 times per month up to 36 hours if he feels his body needs it, using electrolytes.
He did not exercise the first 12 weeks. Once a significant amount of weight was lost he began hiking and running. He has recently joined a gym and is trying to build muscle.
