So I have been experimenting with the Carnivore Diet on and off since around mid-January of this year (2019, for those of us visiting from the future).
I started off the year at at roughly 205 pounds and have been holding at a steady 190 pounds since then. Additionally I have been going to the gym every day during lunch, where all I do is 3 or 4 machines. (I have doing this religiously since the summer of 2018) I do not track which machines I do, nor do I look to hit a certain muscle group or part of my body. I just try to give each machine my best or “my all” and the rule I follow is simply to work out whatever is not sore.
I also avoid working on my legs because I play soccer on the weekends and that is enough to work those muscles out.
My ab muscles are starting to show and I have lost a lot of fat around my body and my face looks slimmer.
Two days ago I found a doctor who is a big advocate of the Carnivore Diet. Yes, he is a dentist, and no I am not trying to mislead you – do I look like a Big Pharma rep? Anyway, he said that one should not do Carnivore Diet with Intermittent Fasting (IF), which is exactly what I have been doing. He said that whenever your body is malnourished or needs something, it speaks to you. One way is through hunger, another is through stress, or depression or just feeling tired.
Since I am very accustomed to my Intermittent Fasting Routine, this is never really an issue for me, however there are some days that I just want to eat before my usual 6pm which is after I have gotten home after work and have settled in.
Anyway, here is his site, check him out!
And some recent meals…
