Haha I was going to say the same as Crisss. Just stop eating junk food.
You can be a carnivore and still healthy. Just try leaner meats like chicken. Salmon is good too but in small quantities.posted over 4 years ago

I know for personal experience that getting off of the junk food train can be really difficult. It took me awhile, but now I pretty much eat nothing but fresh foods.
Switching from bad food to good food cold turkey is really difficult, so start with small changes. Eat an apple with peanut butter instead of a bag of chips. Eat 100% whole grains instead of white bread and replace ground beef with ground turkey.
Once you make little changes, eating healthier starts to come more naturally. One thing that helps me to eat well is that since healthy foods are lower calories/carbs/fats you can actually eat MORE. That doesn’t mean there’s no limit to the amount of healthy foods you can have, but you can have a whole bowl of plain popcorn and an apple versus 1/2 cup of ice cream.
The little changes really do make the biggest difference.
Also, make sure to eat breakfast. It will help you to control your hunger all day and kepp you from binging. Not to mention that having a full stomach to start the day will help keep you going.
Don’t be too concerned about the carnivore thing. I’m personally a vegetarian, but you can be extremely healthy and eat meat. Just stick to organic lean meats like chicken and turkey over red meats. Eggs are another great way to get protein, I probably eat 3 a day!
work on getting a colorful plate: different veggies and fruits. Not only does that ensure that you get a wide range of vitamins and nutrients, but it stops your taste buds from getting bored. You’ll discover what you like and what works well together very quickly.
finally, two tips: First, remember that lifestyle is 70% diet, 30% exercise. Don’t ever use exercising as an excuse to eat an entire box of oreos or a pizza. Second, try cutting sde from your diet. You might be skeptical but I haven’t had a sip of soda in about a year. I used to drink it all the time and I feel loads better now that I’ve stopped. Atleast try cutting back on the carbonated drinks and replace them with tea and coffee instead.
good luck on the health food journey
For myself, I watch my calories, barely use butter in my cooking, and eliminate the use of oil in my own cooking. I’ve noticed that most junk food is higher in calories and has more fat, so I eat more lower calorie food. Also, I try to add vegetables to everything, even if it’s just plain organic salad with my lunch, or sometimes I go decadent and grill vegetables to go along with rice, meat, etc. I used to eat madd junk food (think nachos, pancakes, etc everyday), and I had to condition my body to like new food. It’ll be hard and frustrating in the beginning, but it’s worth the health in the long run.
Hope this could help :)
