Why didn’t I have an uncle to feed me steaks?
But at least Mom fed me with delicious, fatty vegetarian meals And chicken before I went vegetarian to avoid that every Sunday.
I ate huge amounts of fatty animal protein all my life. And everything else so it wasn’t that great, sadly.
Cereal isn’t a food… I keep being confused about that,I had no such phase. I tried it out, of course when the western items could come in after 1989 (I don’t remember having such things before… or just we ignored it. I ate eggs for breakfast for sure. and bread and veggies but well, it was the norm while I hated early breakfasts anyway, I still hate forced feeding and I am right. when I had breakfast, that started at 11am after a long walk) but I found it very bad and useless.
HOW could people live like this? I understand eating a ton of carbs, sure, I live with Alvaro but he needs his protein and fat too. Protein is so basic and very well-known we need it in bigger amounts (okay, maybe not among certain vegans, I saw things)!
Good thing many fat-phobic has no idea that eggs contains fat… But if one doesn’t even eat meat and eggs - okay, it’s doable and I believe many people can get away with it (not me but many. but I am sure I would survive too) but it’s tricky and one needs to know better than eating cereals and processed snacks and whatnot. I personally would eat lower-carb protein-rich items but it’s me. But protein is needed…
That menu has so horribly wrong points. They eat bad things, they don’t eat enough good things and they don’t eat satiating food. I personally never tried to get satiated by carbs longer term but I know that eating my daily energy need from carbs with other carbs or a ton of fat, it doesn’t matter so much, makes me hungrier. I think many people can’t get satiated with enough protein. I may overeat like crazy, it doesn’t help without protein. Okay, some items are better but that’s for very very short term if I ate well in the near past so my body didn’t run out of nutrients too much, it just nudges me to eat again.
But some people eat a sandwich with 10g processed meat in it and it’s a meal for them. Or a fruit is a snack for them. So we work differently but eventually every human body needs its nutrients…
I think it’s good Max was careful with fat, maybe he couldn’t suddenly eat fatty stuff. I always ate high-fat so I only know that without plants I had to lower my fat intake to avoid nausea but surely it can happen when one comes from low-fat too. But of course old habits and maybe learned half-beliefs don’t go away immediately.
Poor kids (I mean the past, Max isn’t a kid anymore and he hopefully knows much better know). Fortunately they really can get away with much (but they have special needs for growing and kids are energetic… it’s sad) and later they can form their own opinions and learn what their body want - but it’s not easy. You showed them something different and better, that’s great. No one ever showed me low-carb, I had to stumble upon it when I wanted to lose fat already. People rarely do that here, I had no idea… We have way more vegans than low-carbers I am sure, that’s totally a thing. Okay, paleo is popular but people do it with bananas and starches, it’s not a low-carb diet, per se though it usually lowers one’s carb intake and it bans a lot of problematic items. It was a nice stepping stone for me but I quickly realized high-carb paleo won’t help me (and I didn’t even eat bananas and starches).
Maybe it’s better elsewhere but low-carb is still not a thing here. I don’t even see keto products (or they are oat based then because why not… oh my) and that’s fine, just saying that even ketoers exist in this Hungary but the number must be low. I met one person who tried it in my life, personally I mean as I met maybe 3-4 online (half of them just tried it out and one was into resistant starch).
Vegans are everywhere and I was lucky to meet very nice ones only. Normal people still eat HCHF and don’t know if chicken is vegetarian or not (okay, maybe that was extreme and not the norm. one can hope).
I had an early lunch with 3 eggs this far. I often have this after high-cal days, I get truly hungry early (especially after some exercise, even a walk may do it like today) but a tiny food is enough.
I will make heart stew, using as little onion as possible but it’s stew, it must have it. I usually just fry the heart and it’s great but I ate so many roasts and last time the tiny stew was so awesome compared to the roast… I only eat half a pig heart anyway, it needs super little plant matter.
(And it’s not like I had a true carnivore day since ages. IDK why I can’t do it now… I did it in the past with way worse supplies. No big deal, I can handle my tiny amounts but still. It’s not like they are needed, usually, they are just there, being tasty because Alvaro eats them. It’s fine most of the time, I have so much experience with not eating his food but there are more exceptions than usual now.
But I don’t even know what should be my final woe. Carnivore-ish actually sounds good but you know, slippery slopes and no need but it’s there… It sounds better and safer to be stricter than strictly needed by default. But then my inner rebel loses it mind so maybe not yet. Oh well, I keep evolving. My garden will assist me, my trees barely will have fruit, we had frosty dawns for too long. but I never eat much fruit anyway so it’s not that important, I am just a bit sad looking at all the wilted leaves and flowers on my sour cherry trees, poor thing got fire last year, now frost that affected the LEAVES. What frost does that? But it’s everywhere so I don’t think it’s a disease… Or is it? Hopefully our still numerous jars will sustain Alvaro, he is a huge fruit consumer, it’s a wildly important staple for him. And the berries aren’t affected.)
Still low energy for me and the weather is great now
@Fangs, a whole lb is nice I probably lost nothing yet but I practice sticking to carnivore, exercise as much as I plan (not want, I want much more than that but I am realistic enough) and I surely will. It’s not like I didn’t develop a huge patience in the last several stalling years of mine (my biggest problem is the rare gains as those just make my weight bigger as I practically never lose).
KetoKoala and I never understand how you can eat so much meat I can imagine it theoretically but we surely never could do it. Well, give me some time and maybe… I can eat. Just usually much less on carnivore and I just can’t eat much meat every day. Or the same kind for long. KetoKoala needs variety too, she keeps getting bored of everything, quicker than me. I am fine with my pork 3-4 days a week Maybe not always as a roast, it starts to get a bit old…
But today I want eggs.
Though looking at the last photo… I wouldn’t be against one of those curly sausage things!
