Yes, life without carbs is surprisingly different. Gone are the big pasta dinners, roast potatos, fruit, toast and jam before an early morning run.
Typically I over the last few days I've had a menu like this:
3x eggs scrambled in butter or natural 10%fat yohurt with ground almond and cocnut
Cheese salad with avo and lots of olive oil; Salami (full fat), olives, cheese, salad, lots of olive oil; previous dinner leftovers
Chicken livers with creme freche; bacon fried with cabbage and onion in lots of olive oil; minced beef with courgette/tomato and cauliflower with cheese all with a good dollop of creme freche. A good side of vegetables
Natural yoghurt; almonds; brazil nuts; cheese
5g salt; potassium and magnesium
Basically fat is my friend - no sugar (even not natural sugar like friut or honey), no grains.
I'm reading 'Diet Delusion' by Gary Taubes. Its a scientific review of all nutritional research over the last 100+ years. I'm halfway through but already finding a lot of answer to my particular metabolic issues.
