Day 16 now ZC.
My diet has been 99.9% Animal protein/fat, eggs, coconut oil and eggs. I went on a small hike (Elevation 225M) Thursday morning with my toddler in a backpack carrier.
My lower body feels like it got hit by a truck still. The kind of pain is nothing like I have ever felt after the most intense leg days in the gym, more like a high fever ache and pain. My strength level is similar to when I was 11-12 years old. Feels absolutely terrible.
Example I sold a small black chair today that weighed maybe 50lbs and it was an absolute struggle to help the lady get it into her car. Typically I walk most medium-large refrigerators down the street into a tall moving van with ease.
I plan on continuing this way of eating until 21-30 days then transitioning back to a carbs for superior strength and anaerobic performance.
Funny enough aesthetically looking at the mirror my muscles have never looked “flat” or “depleted”. They look full and strong.
-My main goals were to reduce insulin resistance and maximize sensitivity.
-Reverse metabolic damage from a diet too low in calories for too long.
-Just to try something new and see if I gain any of the many talked about benefits such as reduced inflammation etc.
I plan on consuming something very agreeable to my body, white rice. I intend on 100-300g or 80-240g of carbs in a beef broth stew with little to no veggies and lots of meat.
If anyone has experience with this transition I would love to hear from you.
