I was on a sort of a Keto diet for about 9 months (with a couple of slips) I certainly ate more carbs than I should of done but kept everything really healthy, and lost around 100 pounds. I then hit a plateau where I was struggling to lose more (current weight 321 pounds). 4 days ago I decided to go full carnivore for an initial 90 day period and then see how I feel. If good, then I plan to make it a lifestyle change permanently.
I have already noticed that I feel less hungry. bacon and eggs at 8am, and no cravings or want to eat until the evening around 6-7pm. Even then I don’t feel starving or mega hungry, but I eat as I guess I should considering I haven’t eaten since the morning. So I’ll have a steak, or some Salmon.
Today though, I had the most horrendous diarrhoea while I was out. I had to run into a shop and use their toilet it was that urgent. Is that normal?
Secondly I seriously struggling with the fluids. I used to be a diet coke fiend, drinking 2 litres of the stuff a day (which I haven’t done since January) and drinking water is boring me so much. I do have a black coffee in the morning, and I don’t really know if I should be drinking that. Is there anything else I can drink that works with the diet?
Good news though, only been 4 days and I’ve lost 5 pounds which is kinda insane. So I know potentially this will work.
Exercise I’m doing is at home with free weights and resistance movements, which I normally do every other day for about 45 minutes.
Any helpful advice would be great, if its going to be drinking water and diarrhoea for the next 90 days I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold on and keep going.
