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.”
I have auto-immune Hashimotos thyroid issues and it seems auto-immune people really benefit from carnivore in particular, but I also think it affects body composition a lot and all people would have good results. As well as a good mental health response.
Emanuel “My goal right now is to complete my second round of 75 days with no carbs. I chose to do a second round now to cover the Christmas period and avoid falling in the same dark spot I did last year!”
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.”
