Pretty happy for me–not a huge smiler. Ha.
But this brings me to my post for today. I am off with my dad for his swallowing test (his Parkinson’s poses problems) as you read this. So today will be just meditation yoga when we return.
But perhaps the best thing about the Carnivore diet is the effect it has on mood. My life is a stressful disaster at the moment, so to feel moments of euphoria amidst all this chaos is of note.
I have been reading a lot from people who have claimed the diet has had an amazing effect on their bi-polar. I have milder symptoms and not sure it’s even bi-polar. I’ve never had to have medication since exercise helps me the most. But the diet is incredible for this malady.
Why? I am not sure. It could be no oxalates or it could be people have food sensitivities and don’t know it. Since I have auto-immune issues (Hashimotos and allergic rhinitis), I think it’s very possible plants just don’t really agree with me and when I eliminate all except coffee and a few spices (a very occasional glass of wine), my system is able to cope. Many carnivores claim to have auto-immune issues like the Petersons do.
It’s just Day Four, but I already feel a bit of lightening to my mood.
I am going to roast a chicken today, garden potatoes and broccoli for my boys. Maybe some cheese, smoked salmon, an egg. I think I’ll fast either Sunday during Lions game or Monday, make some spaghetti for these carb folks.
Happy Friday! Let me know what you plan for your weekend. I will be at ice arena; a weekend of sports. GO LIONS.
