so i’ve made an adjustment to my diet. i’ve upped my red meat consumption to twice a day most days, but not all, over the last 2 weeks. added extra eggs and reduced my carbs intake outside of training. still taking 60 - 90 grams sugar an hour on the bike trying a polarized HV plan with about 13hrs a week. some fruit, natural yogurt and salads, and a little veg. eve meals are steak, eggs, mushrooms, cooked in a little oil and butter.
boy do i feel better, training well, recovering well, less hungry, less tiredness mid afternoon. feeling less puffy, and weight is stable or within tolerance, so i’m not losing a load of glycogen/ water. i suspect i will see a weight reduction very soon on the scales
2 weeks is short, but i’m enjoying not being so driven to biscuits, chocolate etc at 8pm each night. perhaps a reduction in processed food is the driver. we did eat out a few nights ago where i let loose but i’m not a prisoner lol.
is a modified carnivore diet a thing anyone else is trying out? a positive start, i think.
