Dr. Ken Berry’s Guide to Transitioning to a Carnivore Diet

SEO Description: Dr. Ken Berry shares his expert advice on transitioning to a carnivore diet. Learn the importance of balancing fat and protein, and why a gradual shift is key.

Hello, everyone! Dr. Ken Berry here, and today we’re diving deep into the carnivore diet. If you’ve been eating a high-carbohydrate, junk-filled diet for years, it’s time to make a change. But hold your horses! This isn’t something you should jump into overnight. Let’s break it down.

The Importance of Fat and Protein Balance

First things first, let’s talk about fat and protein. In my carnivore diet, I aim for a one-to-one ratio in terms of weight. Now, I don’t measure; I guesstimate. And guess what? You can do the same. If your meal feels like it needs more fat, add more fat. If it feels too fatty, cut back next time. This is your journey, and you get to experiment.

Transition Slowly, My Friends

Now, here’s the kicker. If you’ve been indulging in carbs and junk food for years, don’t go 100% carnivore tomorrow. That’s not ideal, and for many of you, it’s probably not even necessary. Transition slowly. Give your body the time it needs to adapt to this new way of eating.

Why a Gradual Shift?

You might be wondering, “Why can’t I just dive in?” Well, your body has been accustomed to burning carbs for fuel. Switching to fat overnight could be a shock to the system. A gradual transition allows your body to adapt, making the whole process smoother and more sustainable.

Final Thoughts

The carnivore diet is a fantastic way to reclaim your health, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. Listen to your body, experiment, and most importantly, enjoy the journey.

Until next time, this is Dr. Ken Berry, reminding you to take control of your health, one bite at a time.
