No joke – over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about Carnivor? We spent some time writing an in-depth review, closely examining the ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical research. Furthermore, we scrutinized all sorts of user responses from all over the internet. At this point we compressed all the facts and specifics in order to give you the information you need.

Carnivor Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Pronabolin.

What is Carnivor?

To begin, Carnivor is a powder that is made by MuscleMeds Performance Technologies. Hydrolyzed beef protein isolate is the core ingredient. This product claims to be more concentrated than whey supplements. It is intended to increase body strength, build mass, minimize muscle loss and help improve physical training sessions. You simply add one scoop to 6-8 ounces of cold water. Each serving provides 23 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of creatine, 120 calories and eight grams of carbohydrates. It does not contain fat or cholesterol.

Carnivor was released in 2013, but the company started operations in 1999. This supplement is available directly through the official website for $47.99. Larger sizes are also available and there are several flavors to choose from, but read on…

Unpleasant Taste – “Depends on the Customer”

The first issue we found with Carnivor ingredients was that many users felt them impossible to keep down. “We noticed that there are numerous customer complaints posted online regarding the taste of this protein powder. This is never a good thing because how will you use a supplement daily if it’s bad?,” says our Research Editor.

“The chocolate taste like coffee, like mocha coffee. It mixes terribly too. I have to wait minimum 5 minutes for the foam to go down,” stated a customer.

“Taste is the worse out of any protein I’ve ever tested, but I do like the results,” said a consumer.

We know that taste is subjective, so we found reviews praising the flavor.

“The chocolate tastes the best by far and love it,” stated a customer.

“The taste is not that bad, it’s easy on my stomach and mixes really easy,” commented another.

Carnivor Side Effects – “Customer Complaints?”

According to some user reviews of Carnivor, there’s an issue with side effects. Some users noticed stomach pains and gastrointestinal issues. One dieter commented, “I got past the taste, but I feel bloated and nauseous.”

“I felt queasy for an hour or two after. I’m glad I was taking this post workout because if I had done it as a pre-workout I can only imagine how much worse it would make the workout,” stated another.

“Bad stomach aches with the chocolate,” said a customer.

We know there’s a rare chance you’ll see side effects, so we decided to find reviews not mentioning any adverse effects.

“Digests easily, no issues. I take 2 scoops at a time – MUCH less gas then whey,” commented a customer.

“I do not become bloated after and it gets the job done with 23g of protein,” reported another.

According to our research side effects alter long-term success. There’s an issue is customers reports adverse reactions after using Carnivor.

The Science – “Evidence?”

When a supplement states it’s a “clinically-tested muscle-building protein,” we want to know more. What we know is that protein is essential to muscle growth and development. The official website offers a studies where individuals enhanced lean body mass.In total, the average user gains 7.7 pounds of muscle. Additional factors came into play, but people did see positive changes. There’s also studies showing the positive effects from creatine and BCAAs.

The Bottom Line – Does Carnivor Work?

So, will Carnivor devour your workouts? With 23g of protein per serving and research-based ingredients, there’s a chance. The profile is promising and the price is comparable to others. The issues we found with this one relate to customer reviews pointing toward the taste and side effects.

Those who wish to slim down and improve lean body mass, we suggest a supplement using clinically-tested ingredients and backed by positive customer comments.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is our supplement called Pronabolin. This supplement uses a formula containing nine clinically-tested ingredients, with results often found in publications such as The Aging Male.

Also, we’re so confident that you’ll our supplement that we’re offering a 120-day money-back guarantee and multiple-bottle discounts, which is a positive sign.

Previous Carnivor Review (Updated November 1, 2014):

What You Should Know

Carnivor is an engineered beef protein isolate, intended to help build muscle. While having more muscle boosts the metabolism to burn more fat, most people who want to lose weight are not as concerned with building muscle initially. Many people lose the fat, then want to gain and tone the muscle so they can sculpt their bodies. We will take a closer look at the product to see if it can meet all its claims. In addition, if you're in the market for a testosterone that can boost levels, increase energy and improve libido take a look at out Bio Testosterone XR review.

List of Ingredients

CARNIVOR-BPI [Hydrolyzed Beef Protein Isolate, Creatine Monohydrate, BCAAs (Leucine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine), Anabolic Nitrogen Retention Technology Intermediates: GKG (Glutamine-Alpha-Ketoglutarate), OKG (Ornithine-Alpha-Ketoglutarate), AKG (Alpha-Ketoglutarate), KIC (Alpha-Ketoisocaproate)], Hydrolyzed Gelatin, Maltodextrin, Lecithin, Citric Acid, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Acesulfame Potassium, Red #40 And Sucralose.

Product Features

Protein is a necessary part of the diet for everyone, but is especially important for those who want to build muscle. This engineered beef protein claims to provide more concentrated protein than eating a steak (without all the fat) and also claims to be better than using a whey protein. In addition to all the goodness of beef protein, other branch chain amino acids, or BCAA have been added to enhance the effects of the supplement. Aside from this product, Test X180 is a testosterone booster used to increase muscle mass, libido and testosterone levels.

The supplement is available in two flavors: blue raspberry, and fruit punch. It is also available in two sizes, two pounds, or four pounds. The two pound size will produce about 28 servings (one scoop each), but at one to three servings per day, will not last too long. At $30 each, this supplement could easily become pricey. Directions say to mix one or two scoops (cutting down even further on how long it lasts) with anywhere from six to 12 ounces of water for a protein drink.


  • This product is free of: lactose, fat, and cholesterol.
  • Carnivor provides a lot of good nutrition: vitamin A, C, several B vitamins, and essential minerals.


  • Those looking for weight loss more than muscle building don't really need protein supplements like this one.
  • This product is not suited for vegetarians.
  • There are no free trials of this product.
  • This product does not have any fat burners or appetite suppressants.
  • We are unclear as to whether or not there is a money back guarantee for Carnivor.


Carnivor is a decent protein supplement for those who need it. The problem with this is though, it's expensive, and most people do not need to supplement with protein because they get enough from their diets. Those who need to supplement with protein are doing serious body building, and have an idea of what to look for in a supplement. Instead, we recommend you focus on finding a supplement that features an appetite suppressant and/or fat burner in a clinically proven amount. Then, use it with regular exercise and a balanced diet, to get the best results.

I’ve visited my position and he is a bodybuilder and I have lost some weight and I wanted to gain some muscle and he told me about this product I take cholesterol medication and blood pressure medication I was just interested in seeing if there’s any side effects to any medications with this product thank you .

Hi! Because of possible interactions with medications, please make sure to consult with your physician before taking this product.


I just started using carnivore after looking at it in my pantry for some time. It’s not the greatest by itself but with a banana, a few berries, milk, and peanut butter as a shake it’s great. Also, I added it to a bowl of plain oats with a banana, a few blue berries, and a little syrup for taste and it was fantastic. It’s added more flavor to the oats and smelled more pleasing after mixing it with the oats and putting it in the microwave


I have been using carnivore since it xame out, off and on. It is great for me. No gas, bloat, or problems. Put a banana and peanut butter in the vanilla flavored powder and it is a nutritious mass gainer.


I can’t handle whey protein or any other just got carnivor today used it and it was great the taste was decent had a weird after taste but other than that no side affects I love it I’m so happy I found a protein I could handle got the fruit punch flavor




Hi Jason! If you think this is the product for you, you should try it. Let us know if it works. If not perhaps we recommend something else. Best of luck!


I have been using Carnivor for the past 3 months and have NOT experienced any of the side affects listed about. The chocolate is the best flavor. The taste is not bad. For me it is a great product.

Jason Voth

Carnivor is the only protein powder I use. When I comes to powders I don’t go by taste I go by the quality of the powder. I don’t stay sore very long at all. I believe this protein powder to be very high quality. A famous bodybuilder (Arnold) once said..if it tastes good,then it isn’t good for you. I don’t buy for taste I buy for performance. This protein powder works.


so i just started on Carnivor today. Can i take this and casein the same day or no. If so how long in between do i have to wait to take them. Thank you

Hello. For detailed product and usage instructions, please refer to the Carnivor official website for more information.
