Joe Rogan vs. Bill Gates: Who's right about the carnivore diet? Let's hear your thoughts!

Being as jacked as Joe Rogan is, and that too in his late 50s, is not as easy as it seems. A lot of foods with protein, especially meat, are some of, if not the most important part of his diet that helps him maintain the body mass that he has. However, Rogan claims to be irritated and annoyed with people who advocate the consumption of no meat.

As the no-meat movement gained momentum, veganism took shape, where people avoided all kinds of animal foods, including milk, eggs, and even honey. However, that is not what Joe Rogan has a problem with. It’s actually another section of people who seemingly make unconfirmed claims, including billionaire, Bill Gates. Let’s see what the 56-year-old had to say.

Joe Rogan claims to be hesitant to tell people he consumes meat, which is evident by the way he’s body is built. It helps him maintain his shape. But why is he hesitant to talk to people about it? Well, it is due to some people who, whenever Rogan would talk about eating meat, they’d warn him about certain health complications, which he believes makes no sense if they aren’t fully aware of the knowledge for making such claims.

What’s your reaction?

Joe Rogan just called out Bill Gates for the dumbest things! React!

Reactions

“When I tell people that I’m eating mostly meat, they’re like, ‘What about your cholesterol?’ It’s like trying to walk them down the rabbit hole of good cholesterol, bad cholesterol, the balance of cholesterol, cholesterol as it relates to plaque and the arteries, like, what’s really wrong, and is it actual food that most people eat? Is that really what the problem is? Because I doubt that it is. I doubt that it’s meat, I doubt it’s eggs, I doubt that that’s the problem,” Joe Rogan stated on the #2170 episode of JRE.

Furthermore, the $120 million podcaster-cum-UFC commentator would also talk about the double standards of the people who adhere to not eating meat, who prefer consuming processed foods, which many studies claim to be harmful to the human body in the long run. “When people are willing to readily consume this processed bullsh*t on a daily basis, but then demonize steak. That is one of the dumbest things that we have become accustomed to, this idea that steak is delicious but it’s ultimately bad for you,” the 56-year-old added. He would then turn his attention to what the former Microsoft CEO stated about no meat consumption.

Bill Gates claimed that a lot of meat that we eat can affect the equilibrium of the climate. During a 2020 interview with Bloomberg, Bill Gates stated, “Cows and other grass-eating species have a digestion system that emits methane, and methane is a very powerful greenhouse gas.” However, Joe Rogan isn’t too impressed with the ex-Microsoft boss. “‘We should consume less meat,’ Bill Gates saying it with a big pot belly. Like, Jesus Christ!” Although Rogan was not impressed with this statement, Gates, in a more recent interview, would kind of change his earlier stance on the meat consumption debate.

Gates changed his anti-meat stance, but why?

Bill Gates would open up about the meat-climate change issue once again in 2023 when he did change, showing a shift in mindset. It seems that he understands that people who are accustomed to consuming meat, which is an essential aspect of the lifestyle won’t just stop doing that because of climate change. It is something that Gates believes, can never be solved.

“I don’t think it’s realistic to say that people are utterly going to change their lifestyle because of concerns about climate… Other than immense central authority to have people just obey, I think the collective action problem is just completely not solvable,” Gates stated on Bloomberg’s Zero podcast. How would you react to the former Microsoft CEO’s statement?
