This diet has got me questioning everything I know right now. Aside from it making me distrust a lot of mainstream science and nutrition, but then I still live in a perpetual state of ‘what if I’m wrong?’ I can’t deny how good I feel and the effect that this diet has had on my body though. My biggest thing is that, whilst I feel great and for the foreseeable future, see no reason to stop, I don’t want my diet to be at the expense of life enjoyment. In Milan last month, there was a part of me that felt like I was missing out on sampling local dishes. That being said, although it was my first time in Milan, I’ve been to Italy many times, so it’s not like I’ve never experienced proper local Italian food.Read More
I’ve decided to change how I’m doing these carnivore diet updates. I’m still committed to the diet for the time being, however, weekly updates seem to be a little pointless as it’s fast becoming my new normal, and that results in less new stuff to write about.
To that end, I’m going to go to more sporadic updates. I’ll be doing a monthly wrap up, but also pepper the blog with other more specific posts relating to my experiences or things I’ve discovered. Should keep things more interesting, and be easier for me to keep track of. I’ll be honest, I’m not entirely sure which week I’m in anymore! I think it’s week 12 or 13 now, but without going back through my calendar I couldn’t tell you for sure! hahaha!Read More
A bit late with my week 10 update, but thankfully I have all the notes, so here goes! I’m actually not sure what the end game of this is. I didn’t expect to feel as good as I do, so I’m not sure if it’s going to end. I’ve always said I’ll do it for as long as I feel good, or I just want to stop, and currently, neither of those are the case, so I guess I’ll be sticking at it for the foreseeable future.
This week marks the official 2 month point of eating zero carb carnivore, and aside from feeling great, the weight is literally just falling off me! I’ve been on a weight loss mission for years, but this is probably the easiest and most consistent period of weight loss I’ve had. I’m also able to eat more food than I was a year ago, which considering I have less mass, makes no sense using conventional wisdom. I’m also not getting ravenously hungry as much. I still get hungry, I mean I’m only human, but it’s not a raging hunger that consumes me. For the most part I can just ignore it and eat at a time that suits me, rather than arranging my whole life around food.Read More
Shocked to be in week 6 of this insanity, but here I am! I’m feeling great. My stomach area in general actually feels really good. Like the way it’s supposed to feel. If nothing else, this experiment has taught me about the way my things are meant to be.
One negative is that my skin isn’t great right now. This may or may not be diet related. I’ve suffered from seborrheic dermatitis since I was around 16 years old, so flare ups aren’t anything new. Having said that, there is a thing known as the ‘healing crisis’ where things get worse before they get better. If I am healing from within, the skin would be the last to show it, so we shall see.Read More
