In this video, Dr. Berg discussed the carnivore diet and how it conflicts with the recommended 7 to 10 cups of vegetables. If you have bloating, constipation, SIBO, or any kind of digestive problems, you definitely don’t want to do a lot of vegetables. One of the benefits of carnivore diet is lowers insulin that could improve a lot of conditions. Vegetable has Phytic Acid or IP6 is an anti-nutrient but it also have a very powerful anti-cancer properties. Doing the carnivore diet will improve insulin sensitivity which is going to increase the absorption of all nutrients.

Hey guys! I've been getting a lot of questions on the carnivore diet and how it conflicts with my recommendation of 7 to 10 cups of vegetables so let's just kind of talk about it. I think the carnivore diet has its place, I think a lot of people can benefit from it and maybe even you should try it to see if it makes you feel better but I want to give you some additional data. I personally don't do it I just feel really good on the combination of animal products and vegetables. But if you have digestive problems, if you get bloating, you've constipation, you definitely don't want to do a lot of vegetables and some people do better on a smaller amount of vegetables so they can start building up their micro flora in here and if you have a condition called SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, you don't want to do a lot of vegetables because that's going to feed your microbes that are in your small intestine. But the benefit of this diet is that you're dropping your insulin considerably so most of people have high insulin so you're going to drop that and you are going to improve a lot of conditions with the heart, with the arteries, with inflammation because it's a zero carbohydrate diet, so that's really good. Also if you have constipation and your bowels are sluggish, by reducing fiber you're gonna instantly feel better. But now let's just look at the flip side. Some people, well, animal products are more nutrient dense. Not necessarily true unless you're consuming organ meats. So if you are doing the carnivore diet, but you're not doing the liver or brain or heart or kidney or bone marrow and you're just doing the meat, the muscle only - I think you are making a big mistake. Let's just take a look at one cup of kale versus 3 ounces of chicken, versus 3 ounces of fish, this is salmon. Potassium per cup is 375 milligrams. But of course if I was going to do a kale salad, I would do at least five so we times this times 5. Chicken has 220 milligrams of potassium, fish has 300 milligrams of potassium. So you'll say "I'm just going to eat a lot more fish", there's some people out there that are consuming two or three or four pounds of meat per day. So we're getting away from this moderate protein and we're really doing a high-protein diet.
