Hopefully as spring comes I can start hitting the trails, ways, and fells of the Lakes, Yorkshire, and Northumberland. As I am very excited to get my fastpacking career on the go, not that I have any of the equipment to do it yet!
Gabe “I have greatly improved my strength once I focused on powerlifting and I have put on size going from 170 lbs to 210 lbs while staying pretty lean. My current lifts are 520 lb deadlift, 400 lb squat, 260 lb bench press.”
Our grandparents and generations before them likely got enough glycine eating ‘nose to tail’. Decades ago, the entire animal was eaten, not just the tender, lean cuts of muscle meat that are popular today (boneless skinless chicken breasts anyone???).
Ally “My body works best on meat alone (with a little dairy sprinkled in). I also have been working through what is best for me may not be for someone else.”
Who would have thought that Ultramarathon training was a perfect lockdown pastime haha… but still Fuck You lockdown you bag of shite.
Christopher “I also feel very energetic and overall sleep better, my skin also has improved – I used to have eczema but no longer have it.”
What the carnivore diet teaches you is that the food you eat permeates every aspect of your life. Diets aren’t just for weight loss.
Sim “I had a major setback because of accidental poisoning. I tried to use oregano oil from a brand that turned out to be too highly concentrated. I had just hit my stride, was the leanest I had been in a decade by being carnivore for only 4 months.”
I can find marathon training is an absolute slog, but but in a funny way ultra training could be less draining. As anything you do outside, in nature, and moving by your own volition… is training. And I like being outdoors, so this will suit me better hopefully.
Cynthia “I have a couple of skin conditions, that usually flare up in the summer, and they didn’t occur at all this year. The first is a mild case of Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and I usually have a few painful weeks when it’s very hot and humid outside, but I didn’t have any this year. The second is Sun Poisoning (aka Polymorphous light eruption), which I’ve had since I was 8 or 9 years old, and I’ve had outbreaks every single summer.”
