The food pyramid is a lie, meat fat is good for you, and many (if not most) health problems are treatable with diet alone. I'm in remission from severe arthritis (multiple joints replaced), chronic fatigue, depression and a plethora of other symptoms from changing how I eat. This blog chronicles how my family and my parents eat and what it's done for us.
I’ve eaten beef tallow and beef (nose to tail including organs) for 30 days and sea salt and water, super strict no cheating.
I’ve lost 19lb’s (now 142lb 5’7″ 26 years old) Male). My appetite is ruined, I’ve stopped training since 2 weeks ago (was doing 30mins daily before), my sleep is really bad, I have aches and pains all over my body.
I’ve just eaten 3 eggs, a bowl of oatmeal, a smoothie with kale, banana, strawberries. I feel a lot better already, I feel like I can go to the gym now.
I need micronutrients that aren’t available in animal products. I also need a moderate amount of carbohydrates to train/recover/live/function (I don’t need a lot but as I’m fairly lean now and I will be training strenuously I will need about 200g daily as tolerated).
I’m gonna try a whole foods diet for 30 days and see how I feel now. I’ll be eating:
Full fat organic dairy
Eggs, Meat, Fish, Nuts, Seeds
Vegetables (starchy and non starchy)
Whole ancient grains
EV Olive Oil, EV Coconut Oil
Protein Powders, Supplements
look at your genes, your heritage. Do you have northern ancestry? My northern ancestors have lived mostly on animal protein and fat for thousands of years. People without that ancestry don’t do as well on a carnivore diet I think. If your heritage is closer to the Equator, you should/could eat more vegetables.
