Carnivore Diet for Depression – 30 Day Challenge

Carnivore Diet may heal anxiety
23 Feb

Have you felt a sense of doom? Not feeling like yourself every day? Me too..I do have high anxiety from time to time and let me tell you it sucks to deal with. I can tell you this.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

I realized I have tried everything (or at least I feel) everything under the sun to calm down and just relax, and be honest with you nothing has worked.

I have read so much about the Carnivore diet that I figured “Hey, Why not?”. Let’s be clear I am not doctor so before any keyboard bullies come after me, this is 100% experimental.

Chris Bell and his brother Mark Bell inspired me to this type of diet. This is a modified diet, the only protein I am using is beef, salmon, eggs and the occasional eggs and cheese.

I also am including apples and or grapefruits. I have tried many diets, keto, no carb etc and I get very crampy and start to get the most intense muscle fasciculations in the world!

I know this is a very modified carnivore diet, but remember I am eating foods I do not normally eat. No chicken, no turkey, no spinach, no veggies, nut butters etc. I am also doing a slow progression. I choose to keep small amount of fruit in. I know from past experience as soon as I start eating carbs again, I put on fat at a rapid weight.

I am still continuing my journey of Dropping 20 in 2020, sorry I have not filmed in awhile. Life got in the way. But I promise more to come!

Carnivore diet and Anxiety?

For some reason or another my anxiety has been at an all time high in about 5 years. So I am a sitting here wondering why. I have always been determined to get rid of it the natural way. I do 100% believe it has to do with your diet and gut. Good gut health, great mood! After reading so many blogs my curiosity really heightened. A bad gut has been linked to depression and bad skin (another thing I am trying to fix, I still breakout at 34!) I currently still training 4 days a week and try to get in a 30 minute walk most days. I am a big believer in movement, so if anything increases it will be more leisure walking. Leisure walking is more a necessity rather than exercising, humans are made to move not be online meanies.

So what is exactly am I trying to see with this experiment? Good question. I guess what I am really trying to do is heal my Microbiome. With healing the inner, everything outer should fall into place. Anxiety, skin, pains etc. So wish me luck and Happy 2020!

The Best Shoulder Workout

The Best Shoulder Workout
16 Feb

Well I got the flu!, Macros, training and life has been put on hold. I took a week off from training and then realized that may have been toooooo short. I was totally winded and struggling but I got through it. I also took today off (Monday Feb 3, 2020) because I did not feel 100%, that’s OK. I only train 4 days a week so I can get it in….

Dropping 20 in 2020 Changes

I have decided to stop counting macros and do more movement. So what does that mean my training still stays the same 40-60 mins of lifting/intervals a day (4 days a week) but movement has gone from 20 minutes of cardio to 30 mins of leisure walking, nothing heart pumping…but literally getting my steps in. I took getting the flu as a sign to HALT! I realized the obsession started to happen. So I am back to going according to my hunger, sleep, mood, energy and cravings…Also if I want it, I will just have it. It stops binges on the weekends.

I started to use a Kettle bell as my cardio because my jump rope broke, I got another one so no worries. BUT I need to cut it to my height. So here is my current Shoulder and Tricep Workout.

Dropping 20lbs in 2020 – Week 2-3 – How to lower Macros and Full Day of Eating

Dropping 20lbs in 2020 – Week 2-3 – How to lower Macros and Full Day of Eating
01 Feb

Well we are up a little bit and well I can’t say I am too thrilled. Although Aunt Flow made her monthly appearance and well she gives me a stomach ache every time. OK so let’s get on with it.

Lowering Macros when you hit a plateau

My weight has officially gone up from an average of 144.4 to an average of 145.2 :/. I know it may be water, but I want to err on the side of caution here. I am eating quite a lot so I can afford to eat less. Now how do we change this? Quite simple. Small changes.

I added 20 minutes of cardio and dropped 10 grams of carbs a day. Then life came in the way…It happened! I had a controlled refeed, then pizza and wings happened but did it? So I had some pizza and wings until I was comfortably full and called it a day…Was it a F up? To me yes and no, I was happy I did not binge but unhappy I did not stick to macros. So what now? Embrace it and move on…One thing I told myself is that the minute I started to get too obsessive is the moment I stopped and well 2 weeks in it is happening again…

So what is my game plan?

1. Make sure protein is in every meal.

Make sure protein is the base of every meal…but don’t get obsessive.

2. Honor hunger

Don’t force myself to eat, I have been doing that last 2 weeks and it is awful. My goal is to get as close as I can to my hunger without looking at my tracking app every few seconds.

3. Don’t Stress

Life happens remember that! The fact that I am trying my best is more than I can ask for. It’s not like I’m sitting down on my ass eating Twinkies and donuts. Embrace it and move on.

4. Make Small Goals

It’s all great to have many goals. But take it 1 day at at a time. I know my problem was always taking on too much at one time. My goal for this time around is 1. Do not binge and 2. If I don’t meet my macros don’t beat myself up over it.
