The Carnivore Diet

That was pretty much my experience with it too :). Apart from the doughnuts, all I have eaten for weeks now is meat, eggs, yoghurt, cheese and tea/coffee/hot chocolate. I would like to minimise those drinks and eat more regularly but I have lived off those drinks for about 20 years with irregular meals being the norm so I am not going to pressure myself to make such a drastic change in lifestyle overnight. Getting my sleeping patterns normalised and working to a regular schedule is a more pressing concern. Once I have that habituated and I am eating meals at more regular times then I can tackle the drinks issue.

Things that helped with my sleeping pattern was a totally blacked out room, blue light blocking glasses an hour or two before bed, melatonin about 30 minutes before bed, a little pipe breathing/prayer of the soul (final part of the EE recording) just before sleep and no caffeinated drinks or food past 4pm. Also, if you're drinking hot chocolate in the evening, the caffeine might affect your sleep/melatonin production. Oh, and waking up at the same time each morning/eating a fatty meal straight away. Just a few thoughts.

Thanks, :-). I already get tired when the sun goes down so I think I am well on the way. Usually, however, I just go and make another drink as I don't want to go to bed that early :-[. JBP recommends making friends with Google Calendar and setting a definite 'wake up and get out of bed time' that one sticks to. I am going to do that and see how I go. Better curtains that block out more light are already on my mental to-do list. I shall look into the light blocking glasses and the melatonin. I still need to get EE going so that is part of my desire to get a proper schedule going. In the past when my circadian rhythms and sleeping have been aligned I naturally stopped the drinks leading up to bed but I was exercising and eating better then. Once I get going with a regular schedule I think I can start to slot such things in more easily.

It's 6 months today I have been carnivore. So, overall, it works better for me. My stomach is quieter. The best part is I don't physically crave food. Mentally maybe, yet that's easier to overcome. My mood is out of the world different. I'm not always happy and vibrant, things just 'flow' more. Strength is good. Pain relief is exceptional. I had terrible shoulder pain before starting, now the pain is gone.

There are still bumps in diet here and there, though nothing as major as before. Timing has been one of those bumps, on hectic days. Another might be beef sensitivity (rump steak) 😕

A few weeks ago, I did a 3 day water fast, with salt, minerals, sodium bicarbonate and supplements (DMSO, MSM and vitamin C). It was great. I then broke fast with salmon on the last day, and my stomach did not make a sound. The next day I had a rump steak, and my stomach was uneasy. I found this very interesting. I have never allergy tested so I wonder why it was: the cut, it being grainfed, or because it was beef...?
