Telos Health


The carnivore diet is excellent – for most people – but disastrous for others if their health is already bad in certain areas. It is an excellent therapeutic intervention, but, even as the person who brought it to fame states (Dr Shaun Baker), it might not be a diet you want to stay on for a long time.

The keto diet – a good one – is a little bit easier to live with for most people and isn’t so dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. It is easier to maintain a keto diet as there is much more to choose from and so it is easier and cheaper to find the food and drink that you want and can have. When I say can have, you always have the choice not to, but when people start to learn that they can improve their health and vitality and mental clarity and acuity and balance their emotions, and a whole host of other benefits, they/we choose not to eat foods that we know are not good for us, and there are, unfortunately, a lot of them, and many of them quite deadly, sitting on our supermarket shelved in fancy packaging.

These diets are handy templates into improving a persons health and a stepping stone to learn the more subtle nuances of how what we put into our bodies and that includes items like deodorants, toothpaste, shampoo – if you still use those things – and even how we breath, and what we breath – and the energy around us – we wouldn’t want to live next door to a nuclear reactor or one of those energy grids that you can hear hum from 50 meters away, or under a pylon, or next to a 5G tower…

Carnivore Diet Meets Keto Diet

In the world of dietary strategies targeting optimal metabolic health, the Carnivore and Keto diets stand out for their unique approaches to enhancing well-being. While the Carnivore Diet focuses on consuming solely animal-based products, the Keto Diet broadens the horizon by allowing low-carb, high-fat plant-based foods. Each has its distinct benefits, but when considering them side by side, one may find a tailored approach that best fits their health goals.

The Carnivore Diet: A Dive into Pure Animal-Based Eating

The Carnivore Diet simplifies eating to one rule: if it’s an animal product, it’s on the menu. This dietary plan is surprisingly versatile, letting individuals explore an array of meats, organs, and animal fats. Its benefits are well-documented, from significant weight loss and improved digestion to enhanced mental clarity and energy levels. By focusing on meat, this diet aids in cutting down carbohydrates to nearly zero, aligning with some of the core principles of the Keto diet.

Keto Diet: A Low-Carb, High-Fat Alternative

Meanwhile, the Keto Diet embraces a broader palette, allowing vegetables, nuts, seeds, and low-glycemic fruits alongside animal products. This high-fat, moderate protein, and low-carb approach shares several benefits with the Carnivore Diet, including weight loss, improved energy, and better metabolic health. The inclusion of plant-based foods can offer additional nutrients and fiber, which some individuals might miss on the Carnivore Diet.

Synergising the Carnivore and Keto Diets

While both diets aim for ketosis—a state where the body burns fat for fuel instead of carbs—their paths diverge on the diversity of foods allowed. However, this doesn’t mean one cannot draw elements from both to create a personalised eating plan. For those intrigued by the simplicity and focus of the Carnivore Diet but want to incorporate some ketogenic principles, consider the following:

  1. Start with a Carnivore Base: Focus on high-quality animal products as your primary food source.
  2. Incorporate Keto-friendly Plant Foods Gradually: Introduce low-carb vegetables, nuts, and seeds to your diet based on your body’s response and your dietary goals.
  3. Balance Your Macros: While keeping carbs low, ensure you’re consuming enough fats and proteins to maintain ketosis without sacrificing the benefits attributed to the Carnivore approach.
  4. Monitor Your Health and Adapt: Everyone’s body reacts differently. Keep an eye on how your body responds to the hybrid approach and adjust accordingly.


Embracing either the Carnivore or Keto diet—or a blend of the two—offers a path towards enhanced health and well-being. While the Carnivore Diet offers simplicity and potent dietary focus, the Keto Diet brings diversity and flexibility.

By understanding both, individuals can craft a dietary strategy that meets their health needs, preferences, and goals, navigating towards optimal metabolic health with confidence and clarity.
