There’s More To This Than Beef

I’ll admit to having a bit of a bias towards steak, but a carnivore or meat-based diet doesn’t have to start and end with briskets, ribeyes, and liver. Compared to toxin-heavy plant foods, meat nutrition is a giant step up. Everything on the list is a prime protein source, with a rich array of micronutrients, and decent fats to boot.

In the case of fats however, chicken and bacon can often have considerable amounts of polyunsaturated Omega 6. This gives the meat a loose, wobbly texture, because polyunsaturates are liquid at room temperature. These fats are inherently inflammatory, and you’ll probably want to keep an eye on their levels. Best case scenario, you find meat that’s been sourced organically. When chickens and pigs are allowed to eat their natural diet, Omega 6 stops being a problem. The issue with grain-fed monogastric animals, is that they end up storing those seed oils in their fat. 

In short, the more solid your bacon is, the better. But even if it is grain-fed, you should be fine. This is just a quick warning so in case you do feel a reaction, you know what the problem is.

If you can incorporate poultry and pork in your meat-based diet, more power to you. Especially when it means you can fit this recipe into your dinner playbook. Why settle for one meat when you can have both?

In any case, I hope you don’t see this as some niche designed to get you cosplaying in loincloths and hunting elk in the wilderness with makeshift spears. This is just a very practical way of revitalising a metabolism that’s buckling under the weight of inflammatory foods. The apex diet is, at its heart, a two-step solution.

Bring back the superfoods

Ditch the plants and seed oils, the harbingers of inflammation, insulin resistance, leaky gut, and the rest of the insidious set.

the chicken still seemed raw after 45 minutes, had to raise the temp to finish it

200°F is really cool, bacon is cooked at 400, that low would take at least 2x maybe 3x as long is this in Celcius?
