Meat Up with Carmela
It is a year since Carmela did her Carnivore Diet success story for me, so it is about time we caught up with her to see how she is doing.
Her fist carnivore diet success story is here
1) How would you currently describe your current way of eating.
I would describe my WOE as 80% Carnivore 20% Keto-ish, I do eat salads sometimes (low carb versions), and minimal fruit at times (berries only if anything).
2) What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.
I have learned that you literally are what you eat. I have changed my lifestyle 20 months ago and have pretty much stuck to it with the exception of some cheat days, and a 1 week long cheat escapade while on vacation, and each time I have “cheated” I felt like garbage. I feel on top of the world when I stay on track with my eating and that is the best lesson I have learned thus far.
3) What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year.
Setbacks for me are definitely my moments of weakness when my emotions take over. Eating for me has always been emotional and those memories are constantly battling the thoughts in my brain. I started working out a few days a week to continue to lose weight and remain healthy however it is very difficult for me to stick to a routine for myself due to having 3 young children ages 8, 3, & 2.
4) What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead.
I am hoping I can incorporate exercise regularly along with staying on track with my eating consistently to lose more weight because even though I have lost over 100 pounds, I am still overweight.
5) Anything else to add? and where can people follow your journey?
My two cents are this: Just because you changed your lifestyle, lost a bunch of weight and became “healthy”, doesn’t mean everything stops there. It is a constant battle to continue to KEEP the lifestyle you have and if your mind is weak, your actions will be weak too. You can do it! It just takes A LOT of work and mental consistency.
