Meat Up with Rhonda
It is a year since Rhonda 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 initial carnivore diet success story is here
How would you currently describe your current way of eating.
I am still carnivore and will remain one I love this way of life.
What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.
I did have issues at the end of 2019 that I was not aware of. I was still seeing results but I was having elevated blood sugar issues. The insulin resistance was still showing its horns.
Thanksgiving 2019 is when I got my shock. I splurged with about 8-10g total carbs ( insert giggle) it was 2 bites of sweet potato and 2 bites of stuffing, the rest of my meal was meat and fat. 2 hours after I ate those small carbs my BS was 178. I went into full panic mode. A friend on IG that is a nutritionist told me to eat some fat and recheck in an hour. I ate a tablespoon of butter and it dropped 100 points in an hour. That’s how insulin resistant I am.
So from that moment on I dropped my protein a bit and upped my fats and my BS has been stable since. I am melting fat again too. Btw I do not count macros, but I was aiming for a pound of meat per meal and now I eat 1/2 pound and fill in with extra fat, that’s how I changed it up.
What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year.
Since insulin is the master hormone, when it’s balanced everything else will be eventually.
What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead.
I have gone from a size 1X to a size medium since going carnivore 2.5 years ago.
I still hike a few times a week and recently found a great place by a beautiful lake to walk. I’m feeling so healthy and well thanks to Carnivore.
