Hello everyone!

I finally got back in to the site. I guess it doesn't like my personal password???

I am so thankful for this community and the vast wealth of knowledge (and recipes!).

I wanted to try carnivore again after seeing Mikhaila on Joe Rogen, but beef doesn't work for me.

I also wanted to do some kind of elimination diet to see what other foods were problematic, and why I have constant gut issues.

I ended up eating a ton of beef in January, to get the carnivore ball rolling. Gotta eat something right? And I was cooking beef for my daughter...and it smells so good...and...and...(but it causes major hay-fever-like reaction, gut pain, and makes me itchy.)

For years I thought those symptoms were because of trees and grasses in my city!

So the beef helped me stop eating carbs.

Then I stopped eating beef, eggs, and I only have some h/c in my coffee. I mostly eat pork products now.

Now I am losing weight steadily, my allergy symptoms have settled down, my gut pain is gone and I have less ridges in my nails...so win-win!

So glad to be here with you all!

Glad you made it back! A shame about the beef though. I'm not especially crazy about steak but I find ground beef to be very tasty and versitle. And I do love my eggs as well, though BACON is definitely a favorite.

Funny I see that you are in Kamloops. I have a couple friends I chat with online nearly every night using Google Hangouts, and one of them lives in Kamloops. She goes for walks along the river just about every single day now and the photos she sends are just beautiful. I was actually in Kamloops once myself, but that was back in 1975, LOL (I'm showing my age).

When we get on our chat we can talk about food but NOT our specific diets. My Kamloops friend goes to WW and counts her points. She doesn't seem to lose any weight but she still attends faithfully - now via Zoom. I can't really say anything about that as I've been stalled for 11 years now myself despite staying faithful to LC. I've been hoping this mostly carnivore diet would shake things loose but even being mostly carnivore my weight has been stalled for about 6 weeks now anyway,

My other friend just eats anything she wants including bread, pasta, and all sorts of carby foods. But she is nearly 90 now, in good health, and until Covid came around she was still out playing tennis a couple times a week. So I can hardly tell her she's doing it "wrong".

I don't get along with chicken, and I sometimes wonder if it is because commercial chicken is fed with so much corn. I DO NOT get along with corn.

Sometimes it is what the animal was fed.

I can't say I've specifically ever had an issue with corn or chicken. But I used to buy chicken and eggs from a local farmer. The eating chickens all lived in chicken tractors as popularized by Joel Salatin, and got to scratch the earth and eat plenty of bug, etc. The laying chickens were not totally "free range' in being allowed to go wherever they wanted. The farmers tried that and coyotes and raccoons destroyed their first few flock. But they build a huge chicken aviary that was about 10 feet high and 30x30 feet wide and long, with lots of perches and spaces for chickens to move around and roost. And thosse chicken also got plenty of bugs and worms in their diets.

And those were the BEST TASTING eggs and chickens I ever had. Oh wow those chickens were so delicious. Supermarket chicken tastes like styrofoam in comparison. But sadly the farmers went out of business

It still peeves me when I see eggs and/or chicken meat with the packages proudly proclaiming FED AN ALL VEGETARIAN DIET! Chickens are not supposed to be vegetarians.

I think they're fed a lot of soy.

Yup, a corn /soy base.

We lock up the hens at night because of the coyote and racoons.

Why do you suppose you are losing weight eating pork but couldn't lose eating beef?

Just curious.

Likewise. I buy local eggs from free range chickens, but I can't eat supermarket chicken. I'm sure it's what they eat. And it's hard to find the meat from those chickens: they are layers, not eating chickens.

Well I looked it up. Here is what I found

3 ounces rib eye = 225 cal, 14 gm fat
3 ounces pork chops 179 cal, 8 gm fat

That's quite a difference
I shall have to concentrate more on pork rather than beef to try to break my current stagnant weight

Difficult to find spent hens. They sure are tasty though. A richer flavor than 8 week old cornish cross.

Funny thing: I started adding greens on a condiment level, but eating so many meals at home made me realize I was jacking up those portions. So I eliminated them entirely.

And my cravings went away. That is weird.
