Sinking our teeth into the carnivore diet: what’s known, what’s not

Why explore carnivore eating?

At Diet Doctor we do our best to provide the top scientific evidence available to support safe and sensible dietary decisions to help you improve your health.

Some burgeoning dietary regimens, however, lack high-quality evidence either for or against their use. For the carnivore diet, there are a growing number of anecdotes, a wide range of expert opinions and some interesting evolutionary theories. However, very few research studies exist around carnivory.

Should we ignore the growing popularity of carnivore eating because of these scientific limitations and pretend it doesn’t exist? Or should we acknowledge it and discuss what is known and not known about its potential benefits and harms? We have chosen the latter approach but strongly stress that much more experimental research needs to be done.
