Old school vs. new school.
Holy…lol…I tell ya when I did carnivore about 5 years ago and started my exploration of it all, it was always called zero carb of course and carnivore hadn’t taken over so strong yet. Carnivore became the money maker name I think for many like Baker and others. Put that ‘good branding name’ to it and ran with it, put it out there. ‘name zero carb’ is boring to many HAHA but Carnivore…ewww….that draws big attention LOL
anyway…now I search out videos and info on carnivore and they are starting to ‘macro it to death’ and ‘tips on how to change up carnivore’ to make it ALL about the weight loss. Manipulate and monkey with IF YOU want these lbs. gone. ‘count kcals’ is included in that…OMG!!!
I say OMG cause carnivore is being warped but it can be like any other menu plan. Any and all plans can be warped/tweaked/macro’d/kcal counting/etc. to ‘force’ faster changes in the body, ie. mostly weight loss as people do want that fast as heck…who doesn’t? I raise my hand, I want some more lbs gone fast as I can get them gone.
So I am on that fence. And I hate being here, it hurts my azz to no end.
Does one monkey with macros and watch kcals and fat ratios etc…as in 2:1 (like PKD) but the 2:1 is focusing on ‘all about weight loss’ in carnivore etc………or does one do it the old school way of ‘just eat the meat and shut up and drink the water and leave it all alone’…your body will tell ya what to do.
I follow the shut up and eat and body will tell ya what to do…but dare I say I got that itch…hmmm, start to monkey with it a bit. Take ‘control and manipulation’ over it and what can I get out of that? Probably for me no good in that I despise any tracking etc. I despise weighing food to put into an app and know the ratio/kcals etc. I get antsy real fast having to ‘work so damn hard’ at ‘dieting’…cause to me when I do that, track/control/manipulate my eating it is friggin’ dieting at this point and dieting annoys the hell out of me truly. One reason I went carni. To eat well til full and not have to do a thing about it. Lost great weight doing just that, but SLOW weight loss. Not the ‘dieting the heck out of my food’ and whooshing off the bigger lbs faster.
I don’t know. Just chatting out some stuff that I see going down out there. Vids and info on ‘how to do differernt’ hacks on carnivore etc. Is it good? I guess it boils down to truly how ya wanna roll thru life. Love tracking? Into it? Wanna try it etc…yea I get that. Me, the one who despises all of it and doesn’t wanna go there, old school carnivore for me.
but I feel that draw of the new school of carnivore.
but what worries me is can one ‘manipulate’ too much ya know where you take all the good of feeding the body it wants and you limit and control overly and f up the true benefits of what carnivore should be doing for you? cause we can easily f up the body when we don’t listen to it. Hungry but you ate your macro amts for the day? whata do now? just starve til you can eat again? hmm, not liking any of that part LOL
so just acknowledging how zero carb has changed to a more ‘we can fancy up the carnivore plan’ any way we like and it is now more ‘tweaked and f’d’ up out there on some videos I am seeing.
Kinda like Keto got nailed as did LC. A millions ways to control and manipulate and change up a basic plan.
So how far does one walk from the ‘real plan’ you are doing? Good guestion for me to think about actually.
But remember, zero carb or fancy carnivore name…it means eating no plants HAHA that won’t change thank goodness LOL
