UFC color commentator and popular podcaster Joe Rogan gets back on the carnivore diet for one full month but this time, there is a slight twist. Carnivore diet, as the name suggests, is an elimination diet that requires the follower to consume only meat and animal products like dairy and eggs for health benefits associated with them. Rogan had popularized the carnivore diet in January of 2020 and 2021 and he has embarked on the same journey once again.
January marks the world carnivore month. A significant number of people around the world resort to meat and animal-based products to bring attention to their lifestyle and diet. Apart from this, world carnivore month is also about changing the perception of meat consumption. In a recent Instagram post, Joe Rogan revealed that he will add fruits to his carnivore diet in 2022.
“January is world carnivore month. This time I’m adding fruit to this diet. Just meat and fruit for the whole month,” Joe Rogan wrote in the caption to his post.

Carnivore diet update; the good and the bad. Let’s start with the bad. There’s really only one “bad” thing, and that thing is diarrhea.
“Now, I’m well aware of the placebo effect and I’m constantly self-analyzing every perceived reaction I’m having to eating only meat for almost 2 weeks straight. But one thing I’m fairly sure of is that my energy levels are higher and steadier throughout the day. This seems undeniable.
I don’t know if it’s a temporary effect and if maybe it’s just the result of eating really disciplined, but either way, it seems to be real.” Joe Rogan wrote in the caption to his post.
