So today marks the 20th day of being Carnivore. Yes…I have cheated twice. But I have to say that I am feeling a little better. My fasting blood glucose is averaging in the 90’s in the morning and high 70’s to low 80’s in the day. A long way from being in the 12o’s! So I will keep going. I think I want to start intermittent fasting again. Have any of you done carnivore?
The Science behind this way of eating says that this is the Ultimate Elimination Diet. Good for people like me…..Celiacs (or other digestive type diseases). I thought that I would be craving all kinds of food, and my period is due this week, but I only craved a little. Missing salad a little. But other than that, not so much. I have not weighed myself, but I don’t think I have lost any significant weight. BUT, I have read and watched youtube videos about this exact subject saying that once my body heals I will start to lose weight.
I think that healing my insulin resistance is KEY!!! I can’t stress that last point enough. I have been metabolically insulin resistant for YEARS and it has taken a toll on my body in many ways. My inflammation is high, but I think is coming down. Resetting…healing…calming….over time. I just need to keep going.
Chicken does not fill me up and I feel off after I have eaten just that….Beef is the winner but I only eat grass fed/finished beef…so let me tell you that this gets expensive!! OMG! But if I eat store bought regular meat, my heart skips beats for 3-5 days. Antibiotics? Grow Hormones? Other chemicals? I don’t know, but I do know that it makes me mad.
I will heal if its the last thing I do.
More to come, just a quick update.
