I am attending a 3 day conference and the instructor and I were talking about eating plans. It is two twelve hour days and I have brought eggs, ham & cheese wraps and string cheese all days. I was being asked where’s my fiber? I was told I need fiber because there are pockets in my stomach where the food gets caught and I need the fiber to wash out the stomach so I won’t have any gut health problems. What am I doing sounds like keto he says and he has nothing against keto but there have been no long term studies on it. I said there is the Masai tribe who don’t eat fiber and the Inuit survived for generations without a steady intake of fiber. There was that explorer who went a year eating only meat and did it in a hospital to prove the point that it was healthy. And then there are anecdotal stories of people living this way and having good health - better health than before. Another attendee was chiming in with the instructor about how do we know it is healthy and she found this great program where you pair certain foods at certain times - sounds too complicated for me. I should know better and just keep my mouth shut.
But going carnivore is helping me in so many ways. I have also been off alcohol since June 28 - I am staying off until after my yearly blood tests on September 27 - and with eating just from the animal kingdom, I don’t get cravings for sweets or alcohol. I have had two twelve hour days and I haven’t been tempted to eat a pastry at the conference or stop and buy something. I have eliminated Stevia from my tea (though I need it when I drink coffee which is rare). I have MS and I am feeling great! Yes, I occasionally sneak in a homemade chia seed pudding (chia seeds in water) which I know isn’t animal kingdom but other than that, I stick pretty close to the plan. I am happy with what I am doing and I just have to remember that I don’t have to get everyone’s approval. And I have lost 20 pounds since June 28!
Tomorrow is an 8 hour day - the last one. The topic is great, building click funnels for webinars and I am enjoying it.
