I know this isn’t really a keto question, but here goes. I’m shifting from keto to carnivore. The starch and sugar have been gone for over a year, and now the veg is down to mostly what’s coming out of the garden.
Pre keto my plate was 1 protein, 1 carb, 1 veg. Then when I was beginning keto I subbed in a veg for the carb.
My hubby is happy with a SAD diet. So back then, we’d both get the meat and vegs and I’d add an easy carb to his plate (rice, pasta, roll etc.) The veg was never his favorite and would often get left on the side.
Now, we’re getting into strange territory, maybe. My plate is double protein and maybe one other thing - a handful of tomatoes, or some homemade pickles, or maybe a little bit of cabbage or onion or mushroom. Something of a garnish, really. I’m not making veg dishes any more and he doesn’t care for any of the ones I am still eating, so his plate is usually a bit of protein and quite a lot of carb.
I guess my long story question is, do you think it’s a bad idea to cut out vegetables from a diet that’s, well, questionably SAD to begin with? Should there be green beans or salad or broccoli to improve his diet at least a bit? Or is that a misguided idea, are vegetables trying to kill him and they should just go away?
Edit, he definitely does not want to do a natural food or carnivore diet. All of the foods he chooses are carby, and he wants it that way. I can lead him to liver, but I can’t make him eat. So it’s basically meat, veg and carb carb carb, or just possibly meat, carb carb carb and a side of bacon.
