Dr. Paul Saladino – The Carnivore Code

Dr. Paul Saladino – The Carnivore Code

Kevin Stock and Paul Saladino

Dr. Paul Saladino’s new book “The Carnivore Code” launched today (2/25/20) and I got to have him on the podcast to talk about it.

We discuss The Carnivore Code book and also address some of the most common questions about The Carnivore Diet like:

  • “Nose-to-tail” vs “muscle meat” carnivore (and deficiency risks)
  • Macros (and if I’m pushing the limits of human physiology and protein consumption)
  • His appearance on The Doctors TV show
  • Ferritin
  • Environment impact of eating meat
  • What he’s going to be doing in 6 months.

This was one of the most informative, real conversations I’ve had about carnivore and publicly talking about health/nutrition.

I think you’ll really enjoy this primer on “Health Dangers of a Plant-Based Diet” (and if you’re ready to dive in – here’s the 30 Day Guide to Going Full Carnivore).

  1. I have three times the chance of getting recurrent food poisoning due to antibody production, hence I need to be extra careful. I’m listening to the interview and you and Paul mention overcooked meat stripping vitamin C and possibly other nutrients, hence my question about any nutrition gaps that could be forming if one needs to eat well done meat. I don’t want to take a vitamin supplement, so do you suggest anything to consider? Side note, with my disease, there is an autoimmune nerve damage in the gut/gut motility component to it that Dr. Pimentel of Cedars Sinai is working to cure. Paul is aware of this. So far over the course of a few months I’ve felt better in the gut since focusing on higher protein and less carbs type diet and would like to follow it indefinitely.

    1. If you are worried about it then I’d just add some organs, particularly some liver – though just fyi – I know many people who do more well done meats and no organs and do just great

  2. I have post-infectious IBS and eating a canrviorish diet, so eating well done meat is necessary to prevent getting food poisoning again. I understand nutrition could be cooked out with well done meat, so what do you suggest I do to try and cover nutrition gaps?

    1. I’m not sure how valid the “prevent getting food poisoning” is nor what “gaps” you are referring to?
