How would I summarize the second week of my Carnivore Diet experiment??
Yeah, that’s about right, it didn’t go over so well. It was not so good. Not horrible, thankfully, but it felt as if I took several steps backward compared to the week before. But, as the body makes such drastic adjustments, such setbacks, actual or simply perceived, should be expected.
First, here’s the bad:
In the first week, I felt pretty good, mentally, and physically. The second week was pretty much the opposite due to the adjustment phase, and also due to the fact that I’m still not sure about the the whole “comfortably stuffed” thing. Most of the week went like this:
Thankfully, things were not all bad. There was some mostly good stuff too:
Just a few new questions came up this week, and again, these are just ponderings, thoughts that I’m sure I’ll find the answers to over the next few days or weeks.
I did add two of these three powerful, healing foods to my plan, but I am delaying the Beef Liver supplement until I’m through the adjustment phase.
The frozen bone broth was pretty good, but it seemed to lack the jelly-like consistency that I hoped for. So, I’m still collecting bones to make my own.
High-Quality Grass-Fed Beef Liver Supplement:
Though full of bio-available Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, CoQ10, choline, and Zinc among other vital nutrients, this one is on hold until I’m out of the adjustment phase. Hopefully, I will be able to begin using it this week.
Grass-Fed Beef Tallow:
I highly recommend* adding beef tallow as one of your healthy fats. It contains a good amount of vitamins including D and E, as well as choline and useful fatty acids, and it adds a pleasant taste to just about anything you use it in.
Onward into Week #3 I go!
