  A Zero Carb, High Fat Meat Bar 

Portable: When you are on the go, don't let yourself be trapped by the impossible choice between hunger and compromise. Plan ahead so you can stay true to your goals whatever they may be. The Carnivore Bar is shelf stable, so you can plan your way of eating around your life, instead of planning your life around eating. 

Each bar contains roughly the equivalent of a 6oz Ribeye steak with approximately 80 percent of the calories from fat and 20 percent of the calories from protein. By volume, each bar is slightly more protein than fat, giving the bar a delightful crunch that we've engineered mechanically, without having to add anything chemical or unnatural that might upset our digestion. 

Currently for the Kickstarter, the bars come out to about $5 each, which is decidedly more cost-effective and convenient than ordering a steak at a restaurant. The price may change as we scale up, but our goal is to make this bar cost-effective and we'd love to bring the price down as we continue to grow. 

Grass-fed: Get high quality nutrition from cows that ate grass, like nature intended. With a grass-fed and grass-finished bar, absolutely nothing unnatural or unnecessary is added, so you know what you're getting. And if we're going to eat meat, we should eat meat that was raised responsibly, with regenerative farming practices that renew the soil.

Simple and Satisfying: The only two ingredients are grass-fed beef and salt. Nothing complicated, and no nasty surprises. So instead of grabbing a carb-laden treat that'll just postpone your hunger, grab a Carnivore Bar and satisfy it for good. 

Who am I? I am a combat medic, and I served in Afghanistan 2011. By far the biggest threat I saw to the soldiers I cared for, was horrific nutrition. Just as lethal as any bomb or bullet, a crappy diet just takes longer to do its work. A poor diet is an insidious enemy, one that has sapped the fighting strength of our forces for far too long. And now as a civilian, I can say we're not much better off. I will personally make sure this bar exists even if I'm its only customer. I believe in this product deeply, and I utilize it daily; if you don't feel inclined to buy this bar, don't sweat it, there'll just be more for me and my lovely wife.

What's the point? There is portable food, and there is quality food, and ne'er the two shall meet.... Well, that's the case no longer. I believe The Carnivore Bar can revolutionize how we take nutrition out in the world where people need it. Immersed in our hectic, crazy lives, The Carnivore Bar fills an important niche as a zero carb, high fat meat bar, that's both shelf stable and uncomplicated. The Carnivore Bar could be an essential tool in the life of any low carb enthusiast, and play a critical role in the life of any carnivore. I hope you'll join me in making this bar a reality.

Support us and you'll get swag: Even at the lowest tier, anyone who contributes to this project (starting at $25) will receive an epic "Carnivore Food Pyramid" shirt. So you can help spread the word even if you don't buy a box. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for considering donating to this cause. For some it'll just be a tasty treat. But for those of you like myself, this technology allows for carnivores to cross food deserts, and awkward social settings, with confidence and a renewed sense of freedom. Thank you. Seriously. I feel those of us who are trying to promote the Low Carb Way of Eating are all in this together.

Thanks for supporting The Carnivore Bar.

Risks and challenges

Making a shelf stable meat based bar without chemical additives, preservatives, or fillers is a daunting task. In small batches, the density of the bar is highly variable, making accurate nutrition facts elusive. However, our aim is 80% of calories from fat and 20% of calories from protein, making the composition roughly similar to that of a ribeye steak, covered in butter.

We are up to these challenges, and have successfully engineered our prototypes. Now the only thing left to do is make the product more affordable and consistent through the economy of scale.

Please help us create a market for this bar, so we can purchase the equipment and tools necessary to provide this amazing bar at a cost that people can afford.

Thank you for considering funding this project.
