Ha indeed I know I probably eat the most fiber here but even that is extremely tiny and my body has zero problem with it
SOME people need fiber, we know that reading stories on this forum - but it’s not an essential thing for the human body and many of us are very fine without any. I could test all levels I think (I definitely went way over the recommendations on some keto days. I didn’t track it and it probably was quite short term so it doesn’t matter, just saying) and my body loved them all. Zero, tiny, “normal”, high… These all work for me.
Once I have read that fiber is like calories, zero is fine (for a while when it’s about calories ;)), tiny is bad. Well I don’t think that anymore as I definitely eat very tiny fiber about all the time (even if I go off, I typically don’t add much fiber. though I still don’t track it, it’s just a guess. but my normal off day is low fiber keto I am sure)…
Sometimes I get curious and I would like to know my average fiber consumption in the last years (since I tried out carnivore and liked it). But it must be super low. My digestion is pretty great on every woe but if I want perfect stool with ghost wipe and everything, I just need to avoid non-animal carbs (not even completely). Fibers never made any difference in anything as far as I know, my body just couldn’t care less about it.
But a doctor really should know that fiber isn’t essential… And the human body is pretty resilient, at least for a while. I always meet cases where I just can’t comprehend how people are alive still or how they lived… Like poor people in the past, eating mostly carbs. But protein is needed… Well a tiny bit is enough for survival and a good body doesn’t waste any and the less perfect ones probably died…? Still.
There was some jail where only Sunday had proper protein. The other days had grains and potatoes and that’s it. And those contain little. Sure, it wasn’t for long or if it was, the people surely died…? But people in North Korean deathcamps GROW UP there, it’s not like normal death camps where one more or less slowly dies of starvation. They live for decades and even build their bodies from a tiny baby one. Without protein, basically. From my viewpoint. Or human needs viewpoint. It’s just borderline impossible, apparently. The few rats they can catch isn’t much…
It got a bit dark, yes? I always read about such things, even as a kid (well I started with mandatory history readings and went from there so it was medieval torture then. do you learn about that as tiny kids? we do as our history is full with that. medieval Europe was cruel and being a heir to the throne was a dangerous thing… one of our kings got blinded but he still became king).
I fried liver and needed raw meat for pâté and I ended up cutting all the fatty parts from the tiny slab I bought yesterday… Roasted lean pork will be probably boring for me today anyway, I better fry up some fattier pork
I tried to plan a day, let’s see, I eat half the liver, it’s not much, fried meat but some roasted too, eggs of course, almost no protein from dairy… And I ended up with 200g protein so maybe I won’t eat that much meat But I actuallty fancy a meaty day so it very high protein wants to happen, oh well, I was so good in the last days, eating minimal protein (130g)…
But I probably will get satiated way earlier. I am very bad with guessing Good that my body stops me when I ate enough. Usually. Always if I eat the right things, it’s nice.
Another (just normally, not super) hot summer day and this weather will continue in the next several days, weather forecast says. Good enough. The nights are already cool.
