Inspired by Joe Rogan s podcast episodes with (the author of the Carnivore Diet) and Jordan Peterson, Tennyson decided that for seven days, he would willingly give up eating carbs, fruits, and veggies in favor of a strictly animal diet with very little dairy mixed into it. He wanted to see whether the diet would affect weight loss, his moods, and his blood sugar regulation.

On day one, Tennyson is prepared to get into the diet, starting off with a 14oz. flank steak for breakfast and one slight hiccup. I significantly undercooked that steak, he jokes. It was significantly mooing going down my throat. Despite the initial setback, he continues to trek on with his challenge, eventually getting through a dinner of a 12oz. beef filet and bacon-wrapped scallops.

Although he initially has a boost of energy, as the week goes on, Tennyson struggles to maintain the energy to head to the gym for his , finds himself unusually on edge and easily agitated, and suffers from frequent severe headaches.

Ive tried other diets before, he laments on day four, but this diet is a whole new ball game. If I wasnt doing a YouTube video, [theres] no chance Id be doing this right now.

This comes after eating an obscene amount of steaks, ground beef (80/20 instead of his usual extra lean cut), chicken, egg omelets and bone broth, because its the only warm drink I could drink this entire challenge and the only thing that has the most resemblance to coffee.

As the challenge goes on, Tennyson complains of not having something to snack on (I cant just go upstairs and grab a bison steak out of the fridge and start eating it as a snack) and just eating for the sake of survival. He even decides to watch the film My Friend Dahmer, because I feel like a cannibal this week.

By day seven, Tennysons spirits pick up, he's actually back to his normal self. But did he see results? Unfortunately, nope. He lost less than one pound from his original weight.

I dont know why someone would want to do this diet, he wonders, unless someone has serious health conditions where you absolutely need to do it.

It doesnt make sense to me.
