The original carnivore diet success story
1) How would you describe your current way of eating.
For the most part, I was a strictly meat eater, but I had a few lapses. I work landscaping and rebuilding and sometimes after a long day I feel drenched in sweat and dirt and just want the damn ice cream cone! Usually, I eat ground beef that I eat cold after cooking. Sometimes I eat some steak and sometimes a little liver or fish.
2) What have you learned about nutrition over the past year.
I guess if I’ve learned anything, I’m not being a judge of what other people are eating and instead focusing on myself unless I’m being asked – which it happens. Almost everyone knows many people who struggle with diet and my friends noticed when I lost twenty pounds and gained muscle. I’ve also seen a lot of questions online from people who are struggling to get started or connected to their diet. From my own experience and what I’ve read, I only recommend that people keep it simple at first and once they cut out as much as possible playing with their total food volume and fat intake. From there experiment with organ meats and other foods until you find what works best for each individual.
3) What health and fitness improvements, and/or setbacks have you experienced in the past year.
I’ve been doing it Pavel Tsatsulin Simple and wicked program For over a year now which consists of 10 sets of 10 kettlebell swings and 5 sets of 1 combinations. I started with a 24kg swing and 16 reps, and now I’m doing both exercises with a 40kg kettlebell. It was the right time.
I had one setback in December when I started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I beat my body pretty well over the two weeks of going to class and had to quit right now. Getting up at 430am, swinging coffee bells, going to work, carrying 48kg worth of carpet tiles upstairs, then landscaping on lunch break, and finally ending my day with jiu-jitsu was too much. All while getting ready to unlock the strength and conditioning program for this particular Jujitsu dojo. At thirty-seven, it was too much for me. I will try to increase the calories, stretch a little more, then give Jiu-Jitsu again soon.
4) What are your health and fitness goals for the next year.
Minimize diet errors and eliminate the occasional zero-calorie drinks. Really order the diet and keep it consistent for the rest of the year. I always feel my best when I’m strict. As for fitness, I really want to improve my one-handed swings at 40kg and do my swing up to 48kg.
5) Do you want to add anything else? And where can people follow your journey?
Do not rush. Don’t worry about the number on the scale. Keep it simple and perfect for the basics be it with diet or fitness before worrying too much about anything else. For me, this is a strict beef and water diet and mastering some basic kettlebell exercises. Consistency will generate results.
