Meat Up Year One

Meat Up: 1 year later with Lindsay

Interview with Lindsay

1) How would you currently describe your current way of eating.

Thanks to the carnivore diet I have been able to eliminate and reintroduce foods to see what agreed with me and what doesn’t and to see which is best for my energy levels.

My current diet I would say is ketocarnivore.

I am taking a seasonal approach too as we have started to grow a few vegetables that we enjoy and some berries and herbs so I have those with plenty of meat, winter I intend to go back to fatty cuts of meat.

I find my extra exercise in summer forgoes any extra carbs I’m taking in and I feel good!

2) What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.

What have I learnt about nutrition wow … a lot !

I think I have learnt how little our medical profession know about nutrition, how much they push pills instead of trying to get to the root of the problem.

I have learnt that if I listen to my body it will tell me what I need!

I have been able to use diet as my magic pills and so far I’m still off all meds.

I have been astounded at how much diet affects every part of our lives and yet doctors would rather use a prescription!

I am no longer afraid of fat or numbers like cholesterol ( I always had perfect numbers according to the doctors yet was ill and medicated) these days I don’t stress to much.

3) What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year.

Since adding in more protein and fat to my diet my body has changed so much.

I have gone from having no energy and  no will to exercise to someone who really looks forward to it !

Fitness wise I now weight train 3/4 times a week .. I mountain bike with my son 3 x week …. I walk as much as poss and I’m now trying to get more into yoga !

I used to be able to manage 8 press ups now I do 50 a day often … my energy and mood is stable and I even recently started doing Wim Hof cold therapy/ breathing … which I love !

Changing my diet and exercise has literally changed my mind and mood too … don’t get me wrong I like a red wine or whiskey now and then but before it was a crutch these days it’s a treat.

I’m trying to think of a set back … only thing I would say is keeping on top of electrolytes? I used to not worry but with very low carbs I find I need to keep on top of these especially salt and magnesium… if I don’t I feel the fatigue and headache.

4) What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead.

I’m pretty happy with where I am at in my journey but I am really loving the resistance training and hope to keep seeing results in the months or years to come …. who knows I may do a competition for oldies

I love that I have this much energy to keep up with my teenage son and I’m hoping it stays that way !

I feel stronger now in my forties than I did in my twenties or thirties.

5) Anything else to add? and where can people follow your journey?

I think the only thing I’m going to change about my diet is other people’s opinions.  I hope one day many more will wake up and take control of their own health.

I do feel a little momentum building with more and more evidence based studies coming out about fat and sugar etc so hopefully it will continue.
