So, there’s been a ton of buzz around these two diets, and we thought we’d break it down for ya — Carnivore style vs. its slightly more relaxed sib, the Modified Animal-Based Carnivore Diet.

Quick heads-up: This ain’t medical advice, okay? If you’re thinking of shaking up your eating habits, have a chat with your doc first.

Straight-Up Carnivore Diet:

  • The Deal: Animals only. Moo, baa, cluck.
  • Eats: Meaty goodness (including those underrated organ bits), fish, eggs, and some dairy stuff.
  • No-Go Zones: Plants. All of ’em. Yep, even that kale smoothie.
  • Why Folks Love It: They talk about dropping lots of pounds, feeling sharp, and some even say bye to certain ouchy health probs. Both physical and mental.
  • What to Think About: Some peeps worry about missing out on vitamins and minerals, and what it means for the long game. It’s truly a hard diet that can complicate a lot of your social life and vacations.

Chill Modified Animal-Based Carnivore Diet:

  • The Deal: Mostly animals, but with a sprinkle of vegetables and fruits.
  • Eats: All the Carnivore yums + friendly plants like avocados, olives, and a few berries.
  • No-Go Zones: Most greens and plants, especially the grainy and beany kinds. No bread also.
  • Why Folks Love It: Best of both worlds? Meat benefits + some plant perks without going overboard and making yourself a meat monk.
  • What to Think About: It’s like Carnivore with a side of flexibility, but still skips a lot of plant action which some people swear by.

The choice between the two often boils down to individual health goals, personal beliefs, and how one’s body reacts to specific foods.

Remember, our bodies are unique, and what works wonders for one person might not be the best for another.

It’s always essential to listen to your body, do thorough research, and consult with healthcare professionals when considering significant dietary shifts.

Stay nourished and informed!
