Most people with metabolic syndrome seem to do well on carnivore.
⚖️Many people that are obese seem to lose weight on carnivore.

🔮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.
