Carnivore Diet Update - October

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.

Carnivore Diet - Week Six

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.

Carnivore Diet - Week Four

Trying to keep enough variation in what I’m eating to prevent boredom has meant various impulse buys from Amazon Now. Amazon bought Whole Foods recently and now I have so many more options available when I can’t be bothered to go out to the butchers. The latest purchase was a rack of pork ribs which I slow cooked for about 3 hours. Only downside is that I couldn’t smother them in sticky bbq sauce, but they were still super tasty.

What’s really interesting is that despite really enjoying the ribs, especially as I had pork loin steaks for lunch, I really felt like I was missing the satiation I get from beef. I’ll do more experimentation of the next week or so, but it may be that the higher fat content meats really do make me feel better and more satiated than the leaner meats. I’m actually yet to have chicken since starting this diet for the simple reason that it’s about the leanest meat available, and I can honestly say I’m not craving chicken in any way.
