I figured I’d write a progress blog to let everyone know how I’m doing continuing my carnivore experiment. First off, all of life is an experiment, that’s it. I’ve been eating all animal products for 6 months now.
What I eat: eggs and bacon for breakfast. Usually 1/2 a steak and butter for lunch. And burger and egg scramble with pork belly for supper.
I’m very much enjoying this diet. I’ve had some good results. My sleep is better, and I started dreaming more, my energy and vitality for life has increased. The floaters I had in my eyes are almost completely gone. I had a patch of flaky, painful skin that had been on my eyebrow for several years and its completely gone, healed. My fingernails are growing stronger. I’m not sure if that’s from the diet or if it’s because there are so few dishes to wash!! I’ve lost about 3 pounds, but I wasn’t trying to lose any, really. I’m building nice muscles just from doing a few pushups. Speaking of pushups I want to let you know about my next experiment.
Starting tomorrow my 6 month carnivore anniversary I will stop drinking coffee, eat no cheese and do 100 pushups every day and walk about 15,000 steps. These are either stair push-up or knee pushups, done 25 at a time throughout the day.
So who wants to join me?
30 day Experiment, while eating a full carnivore diet
Drink no coffee
Eat no dairy products except butter.
Do 100 pushups each day. What ever kind you can do and they can be broken up anyway you want. I do 25 before each meal and before bed.
I’ll add, about 15,000 steps or two 30 minutes walks and two 15 minute walk each day.
That’s it! Who wants to join me?
The 30 days start May 12- June 12, actually 31 days!
I do everything in my powers to make the treatment that is required by type one diabetes to be as simple as possible. So simple that most of the time I can feel like it’s not even there.
Now on my 100th day on the Carnivore Diet, I have decided to keep it going. I’m not actually saying that it’s the best diet for people with Type One Diabetes. Yet I am saying, that for me, right now the Carnivore Diet is working for me
I’ve been actively searching health and diets for the last 42 years, reading books on health and trying the next promising, health promoting diet.
Since I graduated from college and then studied for myself instead of for my teachers, I’ve probably read over 300 books written about creating health.
Now I’ve ended up on the Carnivore Diet, or the Ultimate Elimination Diet.
This diet eliminates all foods that anyone could have a sensitivity to. Although I eat meats, I also eat eggs, and right now grass-fed butter and sometimes cheese.
I’m happier than I ever imagined I would be on this simple diet. Cook meat, eggs the way you like them. Buy the cuts of meat you like. Learn how to cook meat and then see how you feel.
I’m feeling really good eating this way. My insulin requirements are still low, even though they have raised a little. My blood sugars are very steady and I’m happy. One more simple adjustment in my life.
My eggs and bacon breakfast is already a carnivore meal.
I contemplated this list for a while before I wrote it. My husband helped me come up with the “Wouldn’t it be Nice” idea for the title. These are the conditions that I’m hoping to attract by starting to eat Zero Carb. If you know me you know that I am aware of the Law of Attraction, and I know if I list all the issues I currently have in my body/mind, I might continue to have them. So, hence this positive list of what I want.
Some people call this diet the Carnivore diet, the all meat diet, the zero carb diet. There are issues with whichever title we choose. The term “Carnivore Diet” sounds so “tearing of the flesh”. The “All Meat Diet” is ok, but I plan to eat eggs, cheese and butter. “Zero Carb Diet” is a step farther than low carb, but eggs have a small amount of carbs and cheese also has a small amount of carbs. So, maybe a list is better.
Steak, butter, bacon? I’ll take it!
What I plan to be eating on my next experiment:
Fish and shellfish
Culinary herbs, maybe
Lunch is usually meat, fat and veggies, so I’ll be dropping the veggies. Supper, now supper is my issue. If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know about my Butter Mashup. Now I’ll have to give that up. That’s giving up chocolate and nuts and stevia, and superfood powders. Can I do it? I was already questioning “Are powders real food?”
I guess we’ll see. My main goal is to be happy and further my health journey.
I plan on writing blogs when I see progress. And I’ll certainly let you know how I’m doing on Instagram @thebuttereatter_t1d and FB Aimee Fields Perrin.
