A typical day of eating would be 3 eggs cooked in avocado oil and 3 pieces of bacon with coffee around 10 am, 3/4 lb of a ribeye (or two pieces of salmon, chicken thighs, or lamb) around 3 pm with some avocado and/or cooked veggie mix, and then 3 more eggs with a portion of whatever meat she cooked that day whenever hungry again. ⁠⁣

⁠"Before I was even diagnosed with Crohn's, I was an avid long-distance runner, and on my high school and college's cross country team. Even in off-seasons, I was running at least 15-20 miles a week. It goes to show how little of an effect exercise can have on your physique if you are eating bad food."⁠⁣
