Diddlee's Journal, 07 March 2018

For almost a year I have been consuming 7-16 cups of vegetales every day. My energy levels has not been great, but I've enjoyed wonderful healing.
Recently I've been trying to reveal why my energy levels has not been great, and it seems to be digestive issues related to all these vegetables.

Over the last few days I've been reading about the Carnivore Lifestyle, and have tried a few meals without any vegetables at all. Wow, unexpected results. Felt like Fred Astair in Singing in the Rain today. Dancing, singing, cleaning, working, restless, great energy... Feel almost like a large stone just came out of my backpack. Light as a bird.

This tells me that I really need to totally review the vegetables I eat, and try to find which will create a heavy feeling, and which can create a light feeling. 'Feel-well' research ahead.

One of the things with Carnivore is that the scales has to be hidden in the wardrobe, and full focus has to be on gut-health. So I'll take a break from the scales, and focus fully on what I eat and how it make me feel.

Will stay true to Keto, with possible days of full Carnivore. Will aim to keep carbs as low as possible. Preferably under 6-7 grams a day.

Agree with what you you've shared here. Reminds me of a youtube vid I watched just days ago. "The Vegetable Myth: Veggies Are Not Necessary" Only 15 mins long, might be worth your look. Cheers to better health!

Thank you @teskander. Think I will try cooked Kent Jap type of Pumpkin by itself in a few days. Will keep a journal here, writing down my 'gut feeling' LOL

Yeah vegetables don’t digest as easily as meat in the body

@MillaLite. Had a look at Mr Walker's video. Unlike Mr Walker, I do like vegetables, but my gut disagree with me. Looking forward to closer cooperation with my gut over the weeks ahead. To health, cheers.

I would think that if we ate anything excessively there would be side effects. Seven to sixteen cups is excessive.

I wouldn't blame it on the vegetables! IMHO if we were supposed to be carnivores we would have teeth like wolves, lions, tigers etc. Eliminating dairy from my diet was the first and most effective way of healing my gut. But as I said : it is my humble opinion and it works for me :)

My girlfriend has flat corner teeth. I have sharp tiger like corner teeth. Silly maybe, but I cannot help thinking that this is not insignificant. I've never eaten carnivore before in my life, and are surprised how well my body has reacted to it. Most animals have a simple diet. Time will tell where this leads to.

It’s because meat is more dense in nutrients then most vegetables, depending on how much nutrients you’re getting in as a whole, it most likely is the fact the vegetables were leading to lower calories consumed which also gave you less energy, and the meat was probably giving you higher calorie amounts (and possibly more nutrients/vitamins etc) which lead to having better energy and feeling better. Not that someone can’t get total nutrition through vegetables alone (like vegetarians/vegans etc) but the majority of them also are eating less calories usually, hence losing weight much more rapidly than having more calorie dense foods such as meat. (As well as other things in the diet such as fats, grains, etc leading to variances in more or less calories consumed)

I appreciate you valuable input DEADPOOL12345. This has turned out to be one if the most fascinating things I've put focus on lately. Went from feeling old to feeling very young by changing menu. What you say sounds very right. They say if you feed the body right, it will naturally get lean and strong. Hunger signals will be right on, as well as thirst signals. Fascinating stuff.
