  • Carnivore Diet and Digestive Enzymes

    Can the body continue to make digestive enzymes (proteases and lipases) needed to break down proteins and fats when on a carnivore diet? At some point, will this become an issue because of the lack of fruits and vegetables?

    IDK. Why do you believe your body would quit making lipase and protease due to lack of fruits and veg?

      I made a mistake. If a person is not making enough lipase and protease, eating certain fruits and vegetables such as pineapple (protease) and avocado (lipase), provide these digestive enzymes. Raw meat has enzymes, but the more meat is cooked, the more the enzymes are destroyed. Plus as we get older, we tend to make less digestive enzymes.

      So a better way of asking my question would be "Should someone eating a diet high in meat and fats, take digestive enzymes"?

        I'd say yes...... As is the same for those on a vegetarian diet as cited below.

          I think what that study found was that as vegans usually eat less protein than omnivores, they produce less protease, not that they needed to supplement.
