The Carnivore diet includes eating just meat and nothing else. According to Rogan, his diet included eating two meals a day, and he was eating nothing but eggs and meat. By the end of a month following the diet, Rogan posted he lost about 12 pounds.

According to him, having only meat helped a lot of pain go away and his energy levels were amazing. Just two weeks into the diet and he felt amazing.

But there is no scientific evidence that this diet is actually helpful. In fact, a lot of nutritionists advise to not follow this diet.

But his energy levels were still good, and he felt healthy. His stomach problems were due to not having any fiber in his diet.
