The carnivore diet is a great way to burn fat and achieve everything from weight loss to the mitigation of many symptoms of metabolic dysfunction. What’s less well-known is that it works because it is, in fact, a low deuterium diet – i.e., the foods you eat contain fewer of the bad hydrogens (deuterium) that destroy the mitochondria’s ability to effectively produce energy and metabolic water.

Deuterium is a rare, non-radioactive isotope of hydrogen that occurs naturally in the environment where only 155 out of every million hydrogens are deuterium. People eating carnivore diets tend to consume lower amounts of deuterium because, in general, fats and proteins from these sources are much lower in deuterium. Consequently, we would expect to find that carnivores have lower amounts of deuterium in their tissues and organs, make more energy, and show an increased ability to deplete deuterium from their bodies.

The Dr. Paul Saladino Nose-to-Tail Carnivore Deuterium Study gives participants the ability to see how well their carnivore diet is working based on their deuterium levels and energy (ATP) production. It will also give them free access to an enhanced, premium CalorieMama AI app that will provide insight into their diet.

Here’s what you’ll do as a study participant:

  • Maintain a food journal using the CalorieMama AI app that will allow you to provide the study a record of what you have consumed simply by taking a picture of your meals, snacks, and beverages and providing an estimate of the amount or portion consumed for each. This one-year premium membership will be yours to keep absolutely free, even after the study concludes!
  • Complete a D-Terminator test kit after tracking your daily food intake for two weeks – this is a simple 10 to 15 minute test that allows you to collect breath and saliva samples.

Your total cost for participating in this study is only $150 and comes with one D-Terminator kit (retail $325) and a premium CalorieMama AI app account (retail $79.99). Participants will also be entered into a drawing to win a 30-day free rental of a full-body Joovv red light therapy device. This is a non-clinical, crowd-sourced project for informational purposes only. You will receive your results along with a link to post them to a project site for others to see and compare results should you so choose.
