I am on zero carb forums on facebook…only strict carnivore ones
here is a post I found interesting and will post without naming the person.
It’s been 1 year on ZC for me.
I celebrated with a rib eye,
so it’s business as usual.
someone asks him about his weight loss on plan-----
his response is this:
First my weight dropped which felt great. Then I started to gain weight even though my waist line became smaller. My thighs became bigger and muscular, my shoulders spread out and showed good definition,. I only work out once a week, and then it’s light. Getting up in the morning was a breeze, and my body started to look young again. I’m 68.
------------------see the purpose is to show with SO MUCH focus we put on the scale and a number…this guy lost and gained but is healthier, thinner in his waist, put on muscle and is older, putting on muscle at age 68 doesn’t happen for many truly!! So his benefits are just wonderful for a year on carnivore.
WE ALL MUST forget the scale truly. Forget ‘controlling macros’ and thinking ‘we need, we must supplement, we must must must…’ NO WE don’t…key on carnivore is TIME and CONSISTENCY of staying on plan to receive any benefits and the good ones are great as we know…better guts and bathroom issues…sleep better, we are energized, feel nourished and whole and our bodies not wanting food thru cravings, we are healing inside the hormones and more that balance our moods, give up insight and clarity in thought, we do lose lbs but not on some ‘week scale challenge’ we set up for ourselves, we might gain some but in the end we are leaner/meaner thinner bodies thru our composition which goes against what the scale number should mean We find a peaceful food existence vs. battling crazy dieting schedules we all mostly hate.
and a ton more…
so just chatting out some stuff about zc. We on this plan get it ya know but newer people need to see how others success will be their own success…only time and consistency on this plan will mean something different for each of us but also give us benefits that we couldn’t obtain on other eating plans.
SO HOLD strong everyone who wants carnivore!
