This post is from Jim. Thanks for sharing, glad you’re feeling better 🙂 (UPDATE: Part 2 is here)
“I’m ultra skeptical about dietary fads so when I stumbled upon a video of Mikhaila’s dad discussing a special diet, I was perplexed. I don’t fully agree with everything he says but I do enjoy his work and he’s made an oft-overlooked point (i believe on an h3h3 productions video) that poor dietary habits contribute to people not taking on real responsibility for their lives. I’d love to discuss that but do not want to get too off-topic so I digress.
Please read Mikhaila’s bio to see how her diet’s helped her and her family if you haven’t done so already.
it’s done wonders for my life. I’ve been on meat and greens for just 2 weeks and I’ve lost 2-3 kg but the most astonishing change is my energy levels. I sleep early, have a restful unbroken sleep, wake up earlier, have energy, unlike anything I’ve ever felt. I feel hugely motivated every day. I used to always take a nap after work but I now come home feeling completely awake. I have 2 eggs and a half avocado in the morning and I am not hungry until 6 pm.
I used to work out (and gained a lot of muscle mass) and always thought carbs were a body’s primary source of energy. I am so mindblown by how wrong I was. on Mikhaila’s meat and greens diet, I’ve never felt so energized, with consistent slow-burning energy too. I cannot stress how important it is to CUT OUT CARBS. it feels as if carbs have been the main culprit of my lethargy.
I never thought I’d ever take a moment out of my life to praise a diet on the internet but people need to know the truth. I acknowledge that everyone is different and that Japanese people live absurdly long despite eating a lot of carbs, but I believe that her diet may help a lot of people in western countries who’ve had poor eating habits filled with processed carbs such as me.
Now that I’ve covered all the benefits, I’d like to address that with zero carbs- I do crave lollies, pasta, rice, pizza like an absolute fiend. I also do not drink alcohol anymore (luckily I don’t do it much anyway), and when going out, unfortunately about 99% of eatery menu items have carbs
I’m going to write another testimony in a few months to update everyone on my lifestyle re weight loss if energy’s still good etc.
but please try it out. For one morning have some eggs cooked in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil with a generous serving of avocado, with protein if you can (e.g. chicken or fish). eliminate ALL CARBS~~ and see how you feel. I couldn’t believe I didn’t get hungry until night time… that was just the beginning. I cant imagine how I’ll look and feel in a few months.
Many thanks to you Mikhaila and your father. Thank you !!!
I’d also like to summarise my diet food wise now: meats fried in extra virgin olive oil- steak, chicken, fish/avocados / leafy greens/peanut butter (spoonful for a snack) / lots of eggs /
Soft drink substitutes: lemon-ginger tea/almond milk
I FEEL ALIVE AGAIN WHAT IS THIS ???????”
Here is a 1-hour debate between the Keto and the Plant-based lifestyle.
A friendly discussion between Kip Andersen, Dave Asprey, and Dr. Joel Kahn. The question they explore is, “what is the ideal diet?” Each guest approaches this subject in a very different way, and we hope that the dialogue between them can bring more clarity to this perennial question.
Kip Andersen is the director of the documentary “What the Health;” Dave Asprey is the author of “The Bulletproof Diet;” and Dr. Joel Kahn is the author of “The Whole Heart Solution.”
Dr. Shawn Baker finally released his lab results:
“Ghastly” is not sufficient…. it’s diabolical when post-modern failures are able to spout their pathological nonsense and suck in the gullible and chronically desperate people searching the internet for a cure to their maladies.
I’m not certain if this has all the information but I wanted to give you a heads up about this training. You can check out Irene Lyon on Youtube. If you want to get to the core and heal you must deal with the nervous system! I love all of your posts. I am traveling a similar journey.
I tried it for 5 days.
Only meat breakfast, lunch & dinner.
All my anxiety went away but it seamed to be mostly correlated to me not being able to think at all. I could almost not stop thinking of eating, mostly craving stuff like bread. And when i was not thinking of that i mostly wanted to sleep. I did not pop for 5 days not that i felt like i needed to it was more like stuff went in, nothing came out.
Constantly tired, irritable and hungry.
Not so good for me, is my own assessment.
no vegetables mate? you’re gonna wanna eat some leafy greens, broccoli, avocado etc. try it again with the added vegetables.
Here is a wonderful site:
It takes three weeks for the cravings to go away. The first three weeks can be rather unpleasant but its worth it in the long run (short run really, just three weeks to get over most of the negative symptoms associated with diet change).
