This will be controversial probably.
But please let me qualify the title first.
I’m typing away here listening to the evening news in the background.
Apparently, 25 % of food takeaways are at risk of closing (in Northern Ireland) within the year without some sort of government intervention.
That’s just an aside- I’m a TU rep, so that pisses me off to see people loose jobs.
But it got me thinking.
Everyone is vulnerable, nobody knows what is around the corner.
Let’s say, I, lost my job. (Yes, I’d get another one, but for the purpose of this exercise, let’s say for some reason I couldn’t).
Do you think I (or anyone) could do Keto / carnivore/ LCHF on benefits?
Now, I’m living in UK, but I don’t know how much job seekers/unemployment benefits are worth per week/month?
Never had to use them thankfully, and I hope I never have to.
But there are some people out there who have had no choice with their own circumstances.
So let’s say ‘me’ for the sake of this, not looking to spotlight or highlight anyone.
Would I have to revert to cheap tins of spaghetti, tins of macaronni cheese, cheap bread, say bye-bye to the steaks etc.?
I know I could do a lot of tinned sardines and mackerel- because I already do.
It’s a worry.
One could potentially have the metabolic syndrome return.
Just a hypothetical…what do you think? It’s the cost of living crisis got me thinking this…
And if you had to do processed food, would IF stave off the spectre of returning to metabolic disease do you think?
