    • Pure carnivore is of course, ideal. But we strive for perfection, then we increase our chances to fail. We are on a diet, after all. We already said goodbye to refined sugars, processed foods, junk food, seed oils, etc. So if a coconut, an avocado, or some berries help maintain this carnivore journey, then so be it. We've then already avoided many toxins, carbs, and oxalates. Not everyone tolerates red meat, for example, some do worse on pork. It's a question of fine tuning this great diet as best as we can to our own benefit and needs.  
    • This is for Bob and I hope he finds it. I'm still very much learning my way around this site, not sure yet exactly how to reply to a post. Tongue is very easy to cook, Bob. Large pot, add tongue, bring to a boil and then simmer until tender. It varies with each one you cook, but it takes a few hours. Once it's tender, remove it to the sink and skin it. Just peel off the outer part of the tongue and let yours dogs or cats have it. (Mine love it). Your meat is then ready to slice and eat. The base of the tongue is the fattest and best part, but all of it is delicious. Enjoy!
    • So my wife went out with some friends yesterday for dinner (girl's night) and I only had to cook for myself. I went to this meat shop and picked up some items. While I was there, I saw a 3/4 pack of genuine gyro loaf. I LOVE gyros, and still had some tsatsiki sauce (basically yoghurt) to use up before it spoiled as well as some Egg Life wraps, so I figured I would treat myself.  Now mind you, genuine gyro loaf is a mixture of beef, lamb, bread crumbs, and spices - so this technically breaks my vow to never eat grains again.  Yesterday when I woke up, I was about 175. This morning I was 177. It's unbelievable how grain-sensitive I am.  I don't know how much grain or how many carbs were in it. But I had a pound of food. I could have had a pound of NY Strip and wouldn't have gained anything. I had been strict carnivore, almost lion diet, for the previous 3 weeks.
    • This is so true. I am constantly searching for carnivore and keto related articles and studies to share. This eventually trains Google and Bing's algorithms to serve me content that it thinks I am interested in. I get bombarded with recommendations for vegan diets, articles about how what you eat doesn't matter, and articles about how awful keto and carnivore is. It's almost as if Google and Bing are trying to reprogram me, lol.
    • True, nobody "needs" coconuts. And if you are trying to heal chronic or auto-immune conditions by doing a strict carnivore or lion diet, then yes you would want to eliminate coconut oil as well. Coconut oil contains salicylate, which are one of a plant’s defense mechanisms. Salicylate sensitive individuals may experience asthma, gut inflammation, diarrhea, rashes, and headaches. Coconut oil also contains oleosin which can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. However many others can handle coconut oil just fine. So yes, if you are trying to eliminate the plant foods that may be triggering our immune system, avoiding all plant oils is a good idea. But we support our brothers and sisters who choose less strict carnivore diet variations, such as meat-centric keto, ketovore, or animal-based. Coconut oil can be a fine choice. It's high in saturated fat, low in polyunsaturated fat, and isn't put through rigorous processing like nasty seed oils.
