OK, so it’s taken me 5 years to do this but I think I’m finally there! Slowly but surely I’ve been moving to the right on the longevity curve. Gradually, I’ve been dropping my veg & increasing my meat intake and feeling much stronger & happier as a result, such that now I am virtually on a “zero carb” (ZC) diet.
The Spur to go “All the Way”?
Well, I can hardly expound on a theory of longevity and NOT live it myself now can I??!! There was an overwhelming urge & curiosity inside me that was just dying to find out what this would be like, so about a month ago I decided to take the plunge, and the results have been as good, if not better than I expected.
In the 4 weeks or so since I started, my weight has come down 1.5 kg & I recently achieved a new personal best of 11 pull-ups. As I said, I feel better & stronger and I am sleeping very well. I am down to one bowel movement/ day & this is largely a “paperless” affair. A typical day of food is something like this:-
- Breakfast: around 300g lightly fried bacon, 50g chicken livers and 3 fried eggs + filter coffee with some xylitol & coconut cream.Tea & splash of soy milk during rest of the day.
- Dinner: around 1-1.5 kg of meat/ fish, usually pork, salmon, beef or chicken followed by dessert of berries & coconut cream.
My basic rule remains the same: eat only when hungry, to complete satiation, and with the exception of exercise, drink only when thirsty!
I am still taking all my supplements, including now Omega 3 capsules as a result of my Omega 3 index test. However, now that I’m high meat, I am considering stopping zinc & calcium altogether. I have long since stopped magnesium. My vitamin D regime of course remains unchanged.
My primary feedback mechanism now is both how I feel and my strength performance, both of which are on the way up, and so do I have any intention of going back at this stage?? What do you think..?? 🙂
