Joe Rogan sings the praises of the carnivore diet.
With so many people jumping onto the vegan and vegetarian train these days you would think that eating meat is blasphemous. So many individuals have spread the good word about maintaining a fully plant-based diet, suggesting that eating meat leads to adverse health effects and long term illness.
While veganism has certainly picked up steam over the years, there’s another eating system that has been rising in popularity to challenge the plant-based diet.
The carnivore diet is, as the name obviously touts, a fully meat-based eating system. UFC commentator and comedian Joe Rogan has recently jumped on the carnivore diet train and from the sounds of things, he’s really enjoying the results.

Carnivore diet update: lost 12 pounds, feel amazing. Lots of aches and pains went away, and I have improvements in my vitiligo. I’m impressed. I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep eating like this but this month was very beneficial. Edit: the explosive uber diarrhea stopped around 2 weeks in. It’s been totally normal last two weeks. Shout out to @whoop too for sponsoring the podcast and creating a dope fitness tracker!
Based on that praise for the diet you have to think that maybe there’s something to eating high quality meat. The carnivore diet gets the Joe Rogan stamp of approval which is sure to have many intrigued fans looking to try out the diet for themselves.
