Meat Up with Gabe
It has been a year since Gabe’s Carnivore Diet Success Story, so lets catch up.
How would you currently describe your current way of eating.
My diet revolves around animal foods. I eat 6 times a day. Eggs, steak, chicken, and dairy. I have incorporated easy digesting carbohydrates as a way to put on more body weight for powerlifting. Those foods include white rice, potatoes, honey, and blueberries. I eat over 4,000 calories a day.
What have you learned regarding nutrition over the last year.
I have learned that the magic of the carnivore diet is not necessarily the absence of carbohydrates, it is the fact that it floods your body with essential nutrients, and it eliminates poisons within processed foods. Once those needs are met, certain carbs can be looked at as a performance enhancer. When selecting carbs, pick easy digesting carbs that don’t upset your body. Additionally, I have learned that in order to get big you have to eat big!
What health & Fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the last year.
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.
What are your health and fitness goals in the year ahead.
Long term my health and fitness goals are not lifting a certain number or achieving a certain physique. My goal is how consistent can I be. I don’t miss training days; I don’t miss meals and I don’t miss sleep. If consistency is achieved, progress cannot be denied.
