Ouch. I am not allergic to normal things but I am to human stupidity. It’s painful to read these things and I don’t even know what it is about!
Sounds great to me. Well I am so not ready to EF but carnivore + IF (OMAD or 2MAD, whatever suits my day better), that’s my plan too for April… Until I last, I can’t imagine me doing carnivore for a whole month. Theoretically possible, I never say never… I don’t even understand why I go off, it’s not like I feel a problem, it just happens somehow. I will watch as a hawk now, I want to see the reason at least! My hypothesis is that my rebellious self gets bored. But that’s one reason I try to do a stricter version so me going slightly off still could be carnivore and that’s still wonderful in my book. As long as I stop there.
Stomach growls are not hunger so I don’t care about those (but I don’t care about stomach hunger either), I should wait for either real, strong hunger, weakness or 7pm with the feeling I wouldn’t last until the next evening (it’s not ideal if I eat too late). I can do it on Zornfast, it’s harder to keep at it every day. Especially that theoretically, just carnivore without rules about timing should work fine too… But it’s not always the case. I wonder, if I do it longer term, will my days be more similar or I still will have days with one and days with 6 meals when I eat whenever I feel any urge to do so? I am used to IF and then carnivore came and my timing is all over the place (except I still don’t eat in the morning).
Thank you, yes, I am fine It’s extremely rare that a headache of mine survives the night, fortunately. But the painkiller already helped in the evening. I wonder when I can stop having them. I want a medicine free life. I only have several mild painkillers per year but that’s still too much. I have ideas what I should do better…
Alvaro keeps eating meat, tiny pieces but still. And he ate a piece of shoulders with all the fat on it! And said no word against my supply hoarding (I was very mild anyway. No 5 kg pork chuck slabs or anything, just the 2.5 kg beef leg and some fowl and 1 kg smoked ham but it’s Easter soon. We go to the pig farm shop tomorrow so we will get some good sausage and some other smoked meat too, carefully as I wouldn’t survive that level of saltiness that the pork ribs there have.)
But I totally need to prove him that I actually can lose fat if I eat my cute amount (not too little, not too much) of meat (I know that I lost in November and gained in December and not the meat forced me to eat more carbs… what forced my body to gain is still mysterious, whatever. carnivore is totally the way, I feel better and stop overeating too, it’s very clear). But it’s more important I need it for myself, of course. Whatever, I need all the determination and motivation I can have. And enough nice meat to make things easy enough as I have my limits.
I don’t expect wonders regarding fat-loss. I am still mostly building better habits and my health and well-being is more important and not very correlated with my excess fat as it’s not that severe. But it’s very realistic to get it all. And that stupid illogical and unheard-of big December gain totally must go, I can’t get over THAT.
Coming April, I try to stop these thoughts or at least writing them, I better bring some nice photos now and then and talk about actual good things happening. They will, I am just unsure how much
