His first venture into the world of having only meat was a success. On his Instagram, Rogan mentioned he lost 12 pounds on the carnivore diet. He further added, “Lots of aches and pains went away, and I have improvements in my vitiligo. I’m impressed.” Even though he experienced its benefits, Rogan was unsure if he would continue to eat the same way.

While his experiment with the carnivore diet ended in a success, the beginnings were tough for the UFC color commentator. The diet initially had its side effects. He said, “I haven’t s**t my pants yet, but I’ve come to accept that if I keep going with this diet, it’s just a matter of time before we lose a battle.” Although Rogan later clarified that this issue lasted only the first two weeks, after which everything was normal.
