The carnivore thing definitely works especially shocking how not hungry you are once you get used to it. But it’s just not for me a sustainable lifestyle forever. At least at this point in my life, and I kept drinking black coffee. Looking great at any age though.
Of course there’s all intensities / degrees of carnivore.
Personally, I don’t use spices, I use a lot of Redmond real salt.
I have a cheat once a week and lately my cheat has been fruit.
I have one alcoholic drink every 2-3+ or so months .
I have one 20oz coffee a day (sometimes 2) with heavy cream, some flavored stevia sweetener, grass fed butter, and MCT oil.
Like I said, I limit my cheats to once a week and sometimes the cheat may be having a hamburger with the bun instead of bunless as I commonly do.
Each to their own version — they vary, but that’s the way I keep mine.
View attachment 11377View attachment 11376A couple pics over past 2 years. I’m 54, and for the past 3 years I’ve been maintaining a 5-8% bf year round — the lowest during a hardcore goal phase hit 3.0-3.2%bf level. That’s with InBody scans, so not the most accurate, but nevertheless a measure of consistency for me.
Training style and particularly low to zero carb carnivore eating (along with regular fasting methods) has been the difference. ALL of my nutrition is from food — I take NO supps except additional vitamin D.
My past had me upwards of 40-50lbs heavier (more strength training, more mass). June 2018 I chose to go a healthier, consistently leaner direction. Health and longevity pursuit.
Decades ago I had some fucked up aryan ideology (white pride shit) and had some embarrassing racial tattoos across my stomach. I’ve been going through tattoo removal gradually, so I’ve done some slight photo editing that’s covered it in the pic here, and its obscured a slight bit of actual ab detail.
