Wow SB that is one horrible situation that hit you I remember ‘moving round bales’ by hand also, ain’t easy at all LOL We took early retirement from the farm, just slowly shut it down, sold off all livestock etc and tractors/equip cause I have to say, it can wreck the body for sure. We are a ‘bit crooked’ our decades of farming You take care of your body! Glad you are better now tho, heck I was throwing around 70lb square bales when I was 9 mos. pregnant, NOW I can barely lift one and I don’t wanna HA You hang in there!!
So sorry to hear about this struggle. fat adaption is not what this plan is all about tho. It is about internal healing and re-setting your body and hormones and more. It takes time and that time is individual to all of us. Fatigue was a biggie change for me also and I came from extreme low carb into carnivore and I went well into tough fatigue for quite a bit, then I would bounce up and down on energy til that one day, boom, I was ALL energy and pizz and vinegar and never lost it after that til about month 7-8 or so I went insanely exhausted for about 2 weeks and then one day woke up as right as rain and never ever had fatigue again. So that was my walk.
and the ‘standard’ way into carnivore is 90 day trial. 3 months. But alot of people who really want to see this plan will commit to 6 mos…but sadly many can’t even make it a month and that is where the trouble lies. No person can put a ‘time limit’ on what it takes for actual great benefits from the plan. We don’t have that control at all, our bodies do. I know ‘trials’ are great to ‘try’ something but if time is too short for the body to truly start healing and adjusting then it is what it is if a person cuts the trial earlier on ya know.
But I feel you. All normal changes with adaption time for many carnivores. But it is very personal on how much time and commitment one wants to commit and IF YOU did so well on Keto ya know, and you do go back, it might just suit you very well.
Only biggie is rest when needed, I sure did and the next is don’t push exercise til ya feel better and third is eat. Eat very well. This is critical for our changeover. Wishing you the best of the best you can get
yes this is a perk I love about our carnivore plan. My life was food and when I could eat, now it isn’t and for me personally, oh boy I love it! Cool
oh boy I know this. Our lives were eating out for ‘fun’ and now I don’t care about it one bit and the price vs what my steak costs at home and I like my food better and eat home just like you said. I don’t miss this part of our lives but my hubby sure does, which is why I get ‘dragged’ out now to restaurants LOL so I just go and order the most simple thing I can just so ‘he can eat’ the crap he wants HAHA
---------food was 10 oz steak, 1/3 lb cheeseburger patty, bunch of pork tenderloin slices and darn if that little pork tenderloin wasn’t so delish, it was and I ate that whole tenderloin. yum
Feel great. Feeling strong, all good. All zc good things but remember guys, I got time under my belt LOL so I am ‘thoroughly zc’ now…everyone hang on Time on plan changes us but darn it does take its own timeframe for each of us!
today thinking meatloaf (just burger meat mixed with eggs) and chicken or eating up another pork tenderloin. Either way it will be good!
