I did full-on carnivore for a few days. My kryptonite isn’t cheese, but nuts. Macadamia nuts, pecans or walnuts. So, dropping those was hard. I did meat (mainly beef); butter, HWC in my coffee, unsweetened iced tea- which isn’t carnivore- but I hardly think it matters. I felt amazing, too! Mental clarity - check. Energy - check. Weight loss- check. looked leaner- check. No aches or pains whatsoever. I’m thinking total carnivore is the way to go now. I rarely touch veggies nowadays.
I love cooking, so limiting myself to meats only is saddening to me. But, I am figuring out new ways to improve taste and texture, and create other textures - like crispy beef crackling, and chicken skin crackling. Yum.
