Carnivore on Rogan

Quote from Arena on January 20, 2021, 11:20 pm

Can anybody explain how Paladino’s eczema (podcast) could have disappeared when starting his meat + organs diet? Should he not get more eczema?

There's a few possibilities.

(1) A very restrictive diet where a long list of potential allergens are being avoided.

(2) A zero carb diet which is starving bad bugs in the gut.

(3) He may have leaky gut and there are now less problematic proteins making their way into his bloodstream.

There's also another possibility, that he's a liar. Many of these internet gurus are. You don't even know if he's even following that diet or if he even had eczema.

There is no debate, humans are omnivores. We have adapted to cooked animal protein and fat and starchy plant foods. Saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and glucose are the best energy sources for mammals and we have exploited them for our benefit for a long time.

I really like this paragraph and think it is true, and like many truths it probably has just a few exceptions but none that most people need to think about.
