How do the Carnivore and Keto diets impact weight loss and body composition

Keto Carnivore diets are weight optimization diets. For some who have a lot of weight to lose, the weight comes off rapidly. For others the pace is more moderate. Usually when weight loss stalls, there is body re-composition taking place. For example, while weight loss is stalled, you might continue to shrink in your abdomen, requiring better fitting clothes or a new belt with better notch placement. Since you will be eating lots of nutrient dense meat, you will be able to build muscle much easier than you used to. Muscle weighs more than fat so your weight loss could be stalling or slightly rising due to increasing muscle mass but at the same time you are looking leaner and more fit.

what are the potential long-term effects on metabolism?

None. Metabolism adjusts according to the amount you eat. For example, if you calorie restrict or portion control, your body will adapt and lower your metabolic rate to compensate. This is another reason why some people stall. Your body will think that food must be scarce, such as in times of famine, and will adjust accordingly. But if you gradually increase your food intake then your metabolism will also increase.

This is why you can have some people not losing weight at 1200 calories a day while others lose weight at 4000 calories a day, which is why keto carnivore diet advice will say don't worry about calories, just eat nutritious low carb food until you are comfortably full.
