Popular podcast host and UFC commentator Joe Rogan has revealed some surprising changes after taking on the carnivore diet at the start of the year.

Although the Rogan had initially claimed that he was experiencing some gruesome side effects after starting the new diet, he shared some surprising news with his fans after completing his first month.

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.

Shroud claims Twitch streamers should “unite” to overturn DMCA rules

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has claimed streamers should have taken a “united front” on the new DMCA rules to try and force Twitch to overturn them, and “could have won” if they did, after thousands of streamers deleted their old VODs to avoid being taken down, some dating back nearly a decade.

Twitch has ramped up its efforts in cracking down on streamers using licensed music. Streamers around the world have been rattled and rocked after receiving DMCA takedown notifications, with a massive wave sweeping across the platform on October 20.

It happened because most streamers play music in their streams, which means it’s also included in their library of video clips and VODs.

It’s a controversial issue that has happened in the past, but the latest ‘DMCA Bloodbath’ has been the biggest one yet. Hundreds of partnered streamers have been forced to take down and delete years worth of content, and it’s sparked a lot of outrage from streamers and viewers alike.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek mulled over the issue in his latest stream, and he came to the conclusion that streamers didn’t play their cards right. He believes they should have taken a “united front” on the issue and “hurt themselves” by not doing it sooner.

Shroud believes Twitch streamers needed to be on a “united front” to tackle the DMCA crackdown.

The first point shroud made was that, even if streamers obtained a license to skirt around the DMCA issues and play music on their stream, it wouldn’t solve the issue. 

“If I was to get a license to play music on my stream, Twitch would not know,” he said. “Therefore, their Twitch music… algorithm that mutes VODs would still mute my VOD even though… I legally can do it.”

“So even getting a license right now doesn’t matter,” he added. “Because… you’re still going to get cucked.”

Shroud went on to describe the whole situation as “strange” because playing in silence for a moment.  Then, he had another flurry of thoughts, which brought him to his final point that streamers should have been more united.

“If we as streamers took a united front and we didn’t just make rational f**king decisions and just start deleting sh*t, we actually could have won,” he said. “But now we hurt ourselves, so that sucks, but it is what it is. We folded. We’re a bunch of bi*ches.”

Shroud is referring to the fact that practically every streamer has been outraged by the decision. However, they ultimately succumbed to Twitch’s demands and deleted their VODS to avoid potential issues.

Many people will believe his frustration is warranted. But at the same time, nobody can really blame other streamers for adhering to Twitch’s demands. After all, their livelihood depends on it.

The key takeaway, however, is that streamers could take shroud’s opinion on board in the future. If anything, partnered streamers are all pillars in the community. It couldn’t hurt for them to unite on matters when they really have to.

At the end of the day, workers in the ‘real world’ have associations, bodies, and unions to support them. So why should it be any different for streamers?
