Joe Rogan tried 'wacky' diet for a month which gave him explosive diarrhoea and made him lose 12lbs

The topic of Joe Rogan’s bowel movements should be reserved for the seventh circle of hell, but here we are.

If bonkers celebrity diets are your jam, then Rogan has you covered, with the controversial US podcaster having shed 12lbs by sticking to what he described as a ‘wacky’ diet.

The downside? Diarrhoea so intense that Rogan described it as ‘a rainforest mudslide overtaking a mountain road’. Like we said, hellish.

Back in February 2020, Rogan announced he’d spent the past month following the carnivore diet, which saw him give up vegetables, fruit, grains, nuts and seeds in favour of meat, fish and other animal foods like eggs and some dairy products.

Rogan decided to consume raw animal meat because he’d recently weighed in at 205 pounds (14.5st) - which he said was the 'fattest he had ever been'.

Taking to Instagram at the time, Rogan said: "So I did the carnivore diet for all of January, I lost 12 pounds, gained a tonne of energy - my energy levels were completely flat the whole month, no ups and downs from crashing after eating.

"I had a belly; a lot of people made fun of me, fat-shamed me. I lost all my fat, I lost the belly, I lost my love handles. I don't know if I'm gonna keep eating like this but it was tremendously beneficial.


"I also have an auto-immune disorder, it's called vitiligo, and my vitiligo improved, I had a bunch of white spots fill in, so, I don't know."


He also added: "I went into this thing thinking this carnivore diet was wacky and probably thought it was nonsense, but this is as good as I've felt in a long time and it's just one month."

But Rogan’s weight loss ultimately came at a price. A very explosive, smelly one (yes, sorry we’re back to diarrhoea).


He added: “There's really only one 'bad' thing, and that thing is diarrhoea.

"I'm not sure diarrhoea is an accurate word for it, like I don't think a shark is technically a fish. It's a different thing, and with regular diarrhoea I would compare it to a fire you see coming a block or two away and you have the time to make an escape, whereas this carnivore diet is like out of nowhere the fire is coming through the cracks, your doorknob is red hot, and all hope is lost.

"I haven't s*** my pants yet, but I've come to accept that if I keep going with this diet it's just a matter of time before we lose a battle, and I fill my undies like a rainforest mudslide overtaking a mountain road."

Don't read this while you are eating.
