The UFC commentator released his latest update on the diet on January 31 and, to many fans’ surprise, Joe Rogan explained that there were many upsides to his new eating habits.

“So I did the carnivore diet for all of January” Rogan shared, “I lost 12 pounds, gained a ton of energy, my energy levels were completely flat the whole month, no ups and downs from crashing after eating.”

“I had a belly and a lot of people made fun of me and fat-shamed me,” he expressed, before taking his shirt off to reveal his progress, ”I lost all my fat, I lost all of the belly, I lost my love handles.”

Although he was happy with the effects that came along with the strict diet, Rogan was still unsure if he was stick with it, “I don’t know if I’m going to keep eating like this but it was tremendously beneficial.”

Rogan also explained that he had an autoimmune disorder and even it was affected by the new diet, “I also have an autoimmune disorder, its called vitiligo, and my vitiligo improved, I had a bunch of white spots fill in.”

“I went into it thinking that this carnivore diet was wacky and I probably would think it’s nonsense but this is as good as I’ve felt in a long time,” the popular podcast host claimed after admitting he was initially skeptical of the diet.

He also later shared that the more gruesome side effects of starting the diet were quick to go away, explaining that his body adapted to the major shift in lifestyle after sticking with it for two weeks.

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
