I was having insane cravings for fruit. Not refined sugar, just fruit. I decided to take the weekend off, pig out on fruit, then go back – not on carnivore but on standard Keto.
So I went to the store and was careful to buy only keto-friendly foods aside from the bananas and mangoes. Did NOT buy candy or ice cream, although I wanted to. Came home and had my binge on fruit, which I will continue today, but Monday, it will be keto only.
I won’t say I failed at carnivore, and I still plan to eat a lot of meat, but not liking eggs was a big drawback and I really missed fruit so much.
I can tell the difference. I had HORRIBLE reflux last night where the acid came up into my throat and burned my throat in the middle of the night while I was asleep. The bloating and inflammation is back already. I’m glad I did this, because it showed me clearly what the benefits of keto are, so it will be easy to go back to it.
I’m not sure I’ll do well on 20g of carbs, so I’m doing 50g at first, working down again to 20g. Have two pork steaks cooking right now for my lunch.
