I’m feeling pretty ecstatic today. I just weighed myself and I have dropped another 3.5 pounds. And it feels great.
I have a few other things that I want to mention for anyone who is thinking about doing a high fat, low carb diet.
One is a bit of a vent. And that is when people ask me what I’m doing to loose weight and then they want to criticize me when I tell them that I’m doing. I know that I should have a thicker skin and not take it personally.
The world has drilled into peoples heads that calorie counting and low fat is the way to lose weight. They believe what they are told, even though most people are over weight or obese because of eating this way.
I get it.
I was the same way for many years. I mean eating more fat to lose weight went totally against what I did for years.
But now I know that eating more fat, makes me skinny! Yes, it does!
Yesterday I was talking to a friend who commented on how thin I was getting. She said that she could hardly believe how good I looked. She asked me what I was doing.
I told her I was doing a low carb high fat diet. And she said that her doctor told her that the low carb isn’t healthy. So she eats low fat because that is the healthy way to do it.
I wanted to say to her, “and how is that working for you?”. But I didn’t because I know it isn’t her fought. I mean we all want to do what our doctors say.
But what if the doctors have is all wrong?
I simply told her that I would never eat low fat again because I don’t want to eat products that have had sugar and often times other chemicals added to their products.
I feel like in many cases doctors prefer to just write out a prescription rather than help people fix the problem.
I would rather just give my body what it needs and let it heal from all the crap I fed it over the years.
I prefer to eat real food, no processed or packaged food. I eat meat, cheese, vegetables that grow above the ground (avoiding root vegetables and starchy veggies), nuts, olives and berries. In other words.
I eat real food.
I love seeing the scale numbers go down. I feel so inspired to help others do the same.
If you are thinking about trying a high fat low carb diet, then understand that this is very healthy. You will feel great and the pounds will come off.
