Normal day. Still getting over this cough. I feel fine just have a phlegmy cough that is not very attractive. I sat in the Sauna and steamed some Eucalyptus to help clear out the lungs and sinus. I haven’t been training since Wednesday of last week to give my body time to rest, i’m really bored. Need to train!
Second day of Carnivore. Went a lot better today being at home and having more control over what I was eating. I grilled up a bunch of hamburger and cooked 4 steaks in my Sous Vide … ate two of them (wife ate one) and have 2.5 ribeye steaks for the next couple days.
First full day of 100% compliance on the Carnivore Diet. Today was tough because we took a road trip up to Prescott/Jerome AZ so I had to wing it most of the day.
Breakfast was a typical egg scramble for me.
We stopped at Safeway and I bought some shredded dark meat chicken, 6 hard boiled eggs, and a pack of cheese slices. I put them in a cold bag and snacked on them during the drive.
We ate dinner in Jerome and I ordered a burger added an extra patty and didn’t eat anything but the burger, cheese and eggs.
I drank water and Iced tea… not sure if Iced Tea counts, but i’m lumping it in the “Coffee is OK” logical category.
I feel great, no cravings yesterday. My stomach felt great, no discomfort and no bloating or gas. Typically I fart at least a few times a day… not yesterday.
I’m hungry this morning as usual. Just drank some black coffee.
I’ve decided to transition to the Carnivore/Zero Carb style of nutrition for at least 30-45 days to see how it goes. The intention of this transition is to see if I experience any sort of benefit from the complete elimination of plant antigens and any plant based foods that may be causing allergic reactions or autoimmune responses.
This nutrition program has been described as an extreme “Elimination Diet” which is a tool used to identify foods that cause issues in an attempt to build a customized nutrition program for an individual.
I’ve ordered a Food Sensitivity test from Everlywell (Referral Link) so I can find out what foods I will want to avoid when I start adding plant based foods back in after the 30-45 days.
I also have relatively recent lab work which tested my Cholesterol and other metabolic indicators. I’m going to retest after 45 days of Carnivore and see if anything changed.
I’m also going to continue to monitor Ketones and Blood Pressure over the 30-45 days.
2500-3000 calories / day – Target Daily Energy Expedeture (TDEE) and caloric intake goal.
Approx 200-225 grams protein / day
Approx 185-200 grams fat / day (Fat at 1:1 Fat/Protein Cal Ratio)
20-25 grams Collagen / day – 10 grams for every 100 grams of protein.
1/2 tablespoon Bone Meal per day – Calcium, Boron
2oz of Organ Meat / day – Beef Liver Jerky
.5 tablespoon of salmon roe – Omega 3s
Sea salt is the only spice used
4-6 raw eggs per day just yokes
- Omega 3s: wild salmon, low mercury fish, salmon roe (eggs) is preferred
- Fat: 1 gram of protein = 1 gram of fat. you can play around with this.
These guidelines were taken from this video, I suggest you watch it:
First day moving into Carnivore / Zero Carb territory. Only plant based items were the MCT oil in the morning and the Guiness in the evening. Today I’m going to be 💯
Fighting against low recovery yesterday. Got a solid kettlebell workout in at lunch. Decided to rest instead of hitting BJJ after work. Took a nice nap on the couch when I got home. Feeling much better today.
Big training day. Completed a workout from the Onnit6 Kettlebell program at lunch. After work I trained at GB Ahwatukee for over 2 hours. Fundamentals Gi then NoGi class with about 5 or 6 rounds of sparring. Felt great.
