Its my understanding that burnt meat is carcinogenic and that conventionally raised meat is pumped with hormones antibiotics etc. but if you are eating pastured meats and wild game that isnt overcooked is it any different for these meats?

Could I eat eggs, meat/chicken/salmon, avocado, butter, broccoli, kale and spinach and cover all the nutritional bases? Anything to add/remove/change? Berries and nuts, for example?

No. I would in fact make sure the butter is grass fed, to improve your low K2 intake. I would add some seaweed to counteract the goitrogenic effects of kale and broccoli, and I would eat at least a pound a day of your green veggies.

High protein is a waste. Sufficient protein is better. If you want to stay low carb then do high fat. Easy to do... Couple tbsp of olive oil plus lots of veggies with each meal.
