“Nice Q&A, Phil!” Shawn Baker
Starting carnivory can be a bit daunting until you realise how incredibly simple it actually is. This ebook will give everyone starting this magical way of eating a head start and dispel some of the myths about carnivory and the doubts people face. I get asked the same questions over and over again. At the end of 2018, I thought I’d put together 69 FAQs to give you an easy reference for everything you need to know.
“If you’re considering beginning a carnivore diet, this is a clear, concise and safe road map to follow with distilled wisdom from the best sources in the field.” Paul Mabry M.D, The Zero Carb Doc
As well as hopefully answering most of the common questions newcomers to the diet might ask, I also address some of the objections you might face from concerned or outraged friends, family and vegans who think that you will be destroying your health and the planet with this “crazy” behaviour.
The “Starting Carnivory” ebook can be read on any device that supports viewing PDF documents. 69 questions are answered across 45 pages, which include clickable links to videos and research reports for further reading.
