I don’t like to say “I feel off the wagon” or any of those things…BUT making poor choices is always a bad idea especially for a carb addict. It doesn’t take much to set me into a tale spin. So far it hasn’t been for more than a day or 3 but it still feel like I’m out of control which is a very bad feeling.
Since our first conversation, I have had labs done a few more times and I have no imbalances and all values are within range. This is why I haven’t supplemented with anything else other than with magnesium (magnesium glycinate/ magnesium malate).
I guess if I have learned anything it is to not be too judgmental about what other people eat and instead focus on myself unless asked – which does happen.
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.
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.
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.
My goals will continue to be the best health that I can achieve. I want to remain strong with a strong immune system and work on more exercise to aid in doing that.
“I have learned you will continue to feel benefits from carnivore well into your second year and personally I never seem to tire of animal foods. Trusting the process and keeping with it until your gut is healed is very important.”
“Fat is not my enemy and grains are not my friend. More importantly, I learned that other people’s ideas about diet aren’t what keep me healthy.”
