I’ve been pure carnivore the past several months and wasn’t achieving any positive changes I expected, so I am trying a bit of experimenting at other users’ suggestions.
I ate a bunch of carbs for the first time last week (pizza with vegetables, cheeseburgers, etc.), and I did not feel any different. I always read about how carnivores feel sick or aversion towards carbs after being fat adapted, but I did not feel any different at all, which makes me believe even after all these months of being carnivore, I never became close to fat adaptation. (This among other clues, such as being hungry constantly and craving wheats/grain/sugar even after all these months of not consuming any.)
I had some issues with my bowel movements since I went carnivore, but after consuming carbs last week my stools are normal again (Bristol type 4 bowel movements every other day so far) when before I could only go once every 1-2 weeks.
The only thing is, I am now gaining weight when I have not gained a single pound the entire time I was carnivore; I’ve only lost weight since then. This is the first time I have started gaining weight since I consumed carbs.
So now I’m not really sure what’s going on. Is it possible that my genetic ancestral lineage is not predisposed to a carnivore lifestyle? I am of Southeast Asian descent, so is it a possibility that because of where I’m genetically from, carnivore is just not part of my evolutionary genetics?
