This post is from Jim. Thanks for sharing, glad you’re feeling better 🙂 (UPDATE: Part 2 is here)
“I’m ultra skeptical about dietary fads so when I stumbled upon a video of Mikhaila’s dad discussing a special diet, I was perplexed. I don’t fully agree with everything he says but I do enjoy his work and he’s made an oft-overlooked point (i believe on an h3h3 productions video) that poor dietary habits contribute to people not taking on real responsibility for their lives. I’d love to discuss that but do not want to get too off-topic so I digress.
Please read Mikhaila’s bio to see how her diet’s helped her and her family if you haven’t done so already.
it’s done wonders for my life. I’ve been on meat and greens for just 2 weeks and I’ve lost 2-3 kg but the most astonishing change is my energy levels. I sleep early, have a restful unbroken sleep, wake up earlier, have energy, unlike anything I’ve ever felt. I feel hugely motivated every day. I used to always take a nap after work but I now come home feeling completely awake. I have 2 eggs and a half avocado in the morning and I am not hungry until 6 pm.
I used to work out (and gained a lot of muscle mass) and always thought carbs were a body’s primary source of energy. I am so mindblown by how wrong I was. on Mikhaila’s meat and greens diet, I’ve never felt so energized, with consistent slow-burning energy too. I cannot stress how important it is to CUT OUT CARBS. it feels as if carbs have been the main culprit of my lethargy.
I never thought I’d ever take a moment out of my life to praise a diet on the internet but people need to know the truth. I acknowledge that everyone is different and that Japanese people live absurdly long despite eating a lot of carbs, but I believe that her diet may help a lot of people in western countries who’ve had poor eating habits filled with processed carbs such as me.
Now that I’ve covered all the benefits, I’d like to address that with zero carbs- I do crave lollies, pasta, rice, pizza like an absolute fiend. I also do not drink alcohol anymore (luckily I don’t do it much anyway), and when going out, unfortunately about 99% of eatery menu items have carbs
I’m going to write another testimony in a few months to update everyone on my lifestyle re weight loss if energy’s still good etc.
but please try it out. For one morning have some eggs cooked in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil with a generous serving of avocado, with protein if you can (e.g. chicken or fish). eliminate ALL CARBS~~ and see how you feel. I couldn’t believe I didn’t get hungry until night time… that was just the beginning. I cant imagine how I’ll look and feel in a few months.
Many thanks to you Mikhaila and your father. Thank you !!!
I’d also like to summarise my diet food wise now: meats fried in extra virgin olive oil- steak, chicken, fish/avocados / leafy greens/peanut butter (spoonful for a snack) / lots of eggs /
Soft drink substitutes: lemon-ginger tea/almond milk
I FEEL ALIVE AGAIN WHAT IS THIS ???????”
