40 kg lost. Started with the Dolce diet, and while effective, something wasn’t right. Went paleo, dropped grains and dairy, low carb super high fat. 70% there.
Then the plant refination started. Some dairy added back in. 80% there. Realised that most plants had some negative effect, even if slightly.
Then realised all the supplements, MCT oil and keytone powder were beneficial, but not needed. It has to be simpler than all of this!
Binned ideas to work in an office as a functional medicine doctor for now (still studying) and ramped up my daily pain levels, and energy output.
Then went carnivore, inflammation dropped to almost zero, lost final 13kg, started running again for the first time in 17 years because my knees were healing so well.
Today I eat only meat (80% organic), drink san Pellegrino water and use copious amounts of quality salt (up to a tablespoon a day which stops muscle cramps, keeps energy high and aids healing but keep your water intake high!) and have a weekly work output most could never hope to keep up with, running rings around the young guys.
7 months later I have never felt clearer, happier or more determined.
Simplify it, we complicate shit as an excuse not to do the work. Understanding the complexities of life is not the same thing.
Comfort is a slow death.
