Gross: Tech Workers Eat An All Meat Diet To Get An Edge In Their Tech Work

Just when I thought I'd heard it all when it comes to unhealthy fad diets, this comes along.

Get this ... Apparently the employer-provided free meal buffets are not good enough for some tech workers.  You see, some tech workers have adopted an All Meat and Fat Diet.  That's right!  No fruits, vegetables, grains, or fibre.  Just meat and other fats such as cheese.  It's called a Carnivore Diet.

A Carnivore Diet, aka Carnivory

Ryan Parks, a San Francisco Bay Area tech worker who follows this lunatic and unhealthy diet,  had this to say about his Carnivore Diet (also called Carnivory by those who partake in this unhealthy and gross endeavor) in a San Francisco Chronicle article.  And golly gee, we even get to learn about his bowel movements!
"The first week of the carnivore diet was tough, especially on his digestive system. Fiber adds bulk to stool. Without it, bowel movements were “not enjoyable,” Parks said. Still, he felt lighter and more energized. He no longer required Diet Coke to fend off an “undeniable urge to nap” after lunch. The carnivore diet stuck."
Here are photos of Mr. Parks enjoying ... or presumably enjoying ... his breakfast of a pound of browned ground beef topped with 2 slices of provolone cheese.

Geesh!  At least he could sit down and 'enjoy' his breakfast.  All I can say about this unhealthy fad diet is two words:  Gross!  and  Scurvy!

Crazy!  Now let me get back to my breakfast of fruit and toasted homemade sourdough bread.
