Yes, it turns out that many ancient, healthy cultures did eat soy. But they went through an extensive fermentation process to neutralize the toxins that no longer exist today (same with many other plants we eat).
“I learned that diet is really one of the most important pillars for health. Animal products seem to be at the center of our diets, historically. Judging from many civilizations, our ancestors and all the accounts of people who tell us they feel better when they have it in their diet. It is so important to open a discussion about this because the world is getting fed a narrative of how plant based is the future. Unfortunately, plant based/ vegan diets will only worsen and shorten a human’s future.”
Your brain is very energy hungry. It lacks its own engine, thus requires a continuous supply of energy. For most people, this is glucose. Every single day a normal person’s brain consumes approximately 120g of glucose. This is 420kcal of energy which is almost 60% of all glucose utilization at rest .
My goals for this next year are continuing to be an advocate for the lifestyle along with helping others adopt the lifestyle through my coaching. Personal goals are to continue working on every pillar of health from optimizing my sleep routine to stress management.
We all owe it to ourselves to take care of our health. I’ve long said I know this lifestyle isn’t for everyone but for those of us type 1 diabetics doing it, we’re doing awesome… I wish the diabetic community would get on board and encourage low carb at least. It was frightening for me to see the ill fate of many diabetics to Covid. I firmly believe this woe will keep us well.
First, the Ketogenic diet is by far and away the most effective way to treat hyperinsulinemia. In fact, 94% of Virta Health’s ketogenic diet subjects reduce or eliminate their insulin within 1 year .
This past year, I have figured out that I don’t do well with pork. I just don’t feel optimal when I eat it. I have learned that eggs make a good cream substitute if you blend them into coffee! I also stopped doing IF in the mornings and switched it to eating early and fasting in the afternoon and overnight. I feel really good eating this way and I still feel like I’m getting the same benefits, if not more.
At this time last year, I had just started believing that it was possible for me to be competitive at long distance running. A high carbohydrate diet had destroyed my health, but meat and fat were slowly helping my body heal and repair. I ran my first ultra marathon race this past year on November 7th 2020. I covered 44.63 miles in 6 hours and I won the race.
Skins issues are not predetermined, or bad luck… 99% of the time it is a bad diet that is to blame. Therefore are you to blame?
“Even though I follow a carnivore lifestyle, my focus is on helping people start their fitness journey. It is impossible to be healthy without also being fit. Metabolic health must be supported by physical activity.”
