Microblog: Building Muscle Without Carbs

Watch the clip here.

Watch the full interview here.

Most people with metabolic syndrome seem to do well on carnivore.

⚖️Many people that are obese seem to lose weight on carnivore.

❓But what about the biohackers and athletes?

🍯Many people in the community tell me they need carbs before and during workouts. Without carbs they cannot lift as heavy.

🔮Well, there’s something called the nocebo effect.

🥀A nocebo effect occurs when negative expectations are thought to occur with the present situation or matter at hand.

💊For example, when a patient anticipates a side effect of a medication, they can suffer that effect even if the medication is actually a safe substance for that patient.

💡The mind-body connection is real.

🍭Some studies have shown that the mere belief in needing carbs for workouts makes the need for carbs to hold true.

🏋🏻‍♀️It’s not a body thing but a mind thing.

❓Do you need carbs for explosive workouts and heavy lifting?

🤷🏻‍♀️It depends on if you believe you do.

❌But physically, no, you don’t.

🎙I’ve interviewed enough fitness experts and researchers to know this holds true (and not all of them follow a meat-only carnivore diet).

💪🏼I had the pleasure of sitting down with @ketosavage and he shares how he gained his professional card as a natural bodybuilder.

And without carbs.

❗️As the clip shares, Robert has been coaching many athletes and bodybuilders with a high fat ketogenic diet. And Robert hasn’t had carbs in 7 years.
