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.”
“Despite being a lifelong athlete/sportsman, and on paper in decent shape almost all the time, I think I was suffering from chronic global inflammation, and probably other carb-related issues.”
“In this one study, astaxanthin was found to slow decline from brain aging . Now this is one of the things that people are most terrified when it comes to aging…losing their cognitive abilities. This is a huge reason why I try to get some ASX in my diet every day.”
I want to gain lots of strength on the big lifts. I will do a high intensity workout with four to seven rest days in between. I want to go to 8-9% body fat this year. The only thing I do to lose excess body fat is to eat a little bit leaner and some days do OMAD.
