    Carnivore Diet: 2 Month Update (Exercise, Skin, Pelvic Floor)
    Finally got around to editing my video updating you after starting the Carnivore Diet 2 months ago! Again, super happy with the progress! I did go off for a few ...


Time for another update it’s been almost exactly two months since I started the carnivore diet fully expecting to hate it and because you guys have asked for a too long didn’t watch recap in the beginning of the videos I’m going to go ahead and do that right now so 30 days into the current of our diet I stopped eating so much salt I had some improvements in skin conditions that were super interesting and I’m going to go ahead and put the timestamps for all these down below if you want to just click to what you want to see um so I mean I get that swimmers hi it’s kind of like the runner’s high immediately in swimming and this is something that I wasn’t hitting every time I would swim or even like every three or four times I would slime and so I’m super excited about that I need way less electrolytes when I exercise now and so that’s like a really kind of adaptive or cool change it’s come with being on the carnivore diet for longer I did go off carnivore I got so bloated that my five-year-old asked me if there was a baby in my tummy I’m back on carnivore very happily now um there were some things that I held onto like some improvements in my body and my health and whatever that stayed even though I went off carnivore and there were some things that came back and made me think that like carnivore is definitely the way for me to go right now I did get sick and I seriously questioned my lack of vitamin C and my lack of minerals and so I was taking a multivitamin for a while which some people think is carnivore blasphemy and we’ll talk about more a little we’ll talk a little bit more about that at the end of the video the biggest armors they got the biggest observation that I thought was super interesting is that I need so much less salt like I hit pretty much 30 days on carnivore even though I hadn’t been 100% strict I’ve been probably like out of those thirty days I’d probably been nothing but animal foods for like 28 or 27 of them where you guys saw and I think it was my second my three-week update video on carnivore that I ate some cookies one day but for the most part I was on carnivore for that whole first month and pretty much 30 days on the dot I stopped maybe and electrolytes and so you guys have asked me how I feel when I know I need electrolytes how do you know you need electrolytes you just feel like or I feel lethargic and like super thirsty like I’m thirsty but I’m drinking water and it doesn’t seem to be holding that’s how I know I need electrolytes and all so I feel lethargic just like I tend on carnivore and keto both when my electrolytes are right I have tons and tons of energy like way more energy than I had in high school more energy than I had in my 20s I’m 35 now I just like wake up happy ready to go ready to do things low stress when my electrolytes are off I’m just like lethargic I want to sit and watch Netflix and so that’s how I know and really what I think that is is your kidneys are good at recycling electrolytes but they definitely prefer for you to be taking them in and so if your kidneys have to recycle them that’s a lot of effort for your body until your body’s gonna just be like well let’s just slow way down and so our commutes don’t have to do all this electrolyte stuff I’m a very scientific explanation and so 30 and up to those 30 days I was taking like a quarter or a half a teaspoon of Redman sea salt in my hand and I just like put that in my mouth and then drink a big glass of water probably two or three times a day more if I would exercise and that’s just what I needed to keep my energy up which electrolytes don’t give you energy but lack of electrolytes will make it so you are lethargic so the first 30 days of carnivore I didn’t find that I needed to take magnesium orally I still do absence all in the tub a few times a week and that’s another way that you can get magnesium through your skin I found I didn’t need that potassium chloride or the pep yeah whatever that low salt is the potassium and that was kind of interesting to me that when I was on keto I definitely felt like I needed that potassium and then the first 30 days of carnivore just taking that extra salt and then I’d be good to go it’s like an immediate improvement like within 10 minutes of taking that salt and drinking that water I perk right back up and so that was that was pretty interesting to me and then what I thought was most interesting was that 30 days into carnivore I just figured I’d be taking a lot of salt the whole time I was doing the carnivore diet and something changed I don’t know what my body’s doing or what its adapted to but I am definitely not needing as much salt and so that’s kind of exciting interesting to see you that your body changes like that and honestly it’s pretty nice to not have to go like taking a mouthful of salt is not maybe my favorite thing to do so that’s kind of nice at that gone to skin wise I always had in here’s and it doesn’t matter if I shave or if I wax or whatever so like on my legs I have always had an ingrown hairs and I thought it was from swimming I’m Harris Bob to say hi to you again hi mom but I thought it was from swimming because like the chlorine and I always grew up and I was a swimmer and I just figured that that was something that I was going to have to deal with as long as I was a swimmer and like my skin had permanently had the microbiome changed or whatever I don’t know what’s going on but about about probably three weeks into the carnivore diet and I thought it was just like a coincidence at first but no it’s like stayed for the last month is I don’t get ingrown hairs anymore it’s like I have exfoliated the same I’ve done everything the same like used the same lotions and everything as I did before carnivore and I’m not getting those ingrown hairs so that’s obviously not a huge problem and it’s not something that is like somebody would completely alter their dietary protocol for I wouldn’t think but I just thought it was an interesting observation that I’ve had that pretty much since I started shaving my legs that like I don’t know 11 or 12 whenever that starts till now I’m 35 and it’s never gone away even when I spent like there was years I didn’t swim and it was still like I did exfoliator I did whatever and I still had like quite a few ingrown hairs in my legs and that went away sleep is still very good I’m just kneading like the same amount of sleep but my the difference that I’ve seen because I told you I did go off during spring break like I was teaching my kids how to make banana bread I was teaching them all sorts of stuff and I was just eating kind of whatever at other people’s houses and not really worrying about being on carnivore.

I still eating meat mostly as my meals but I wasn’t making a completely separate meal for myself I’m compared to my family for like five days on spring break and so I found that when I went off carnivore my sleep went back to where I’m waking up like every 90 minutes 120 minutes and not bad but just like rolling over getting comfortable again going back to sleep and on carnivore it stays the same where I’m sleeping the same but I wake up feeling so much better rested and I just sleep through the night which everyone knows it can be kind of frustrating to wake up in the middle of the night and then have to like think about going back to sleep and then go back to sleep carrying on with that went those five days that I was eating banana bread that my son made and I can’t remember what else ate Ben and Jerry’s that was a vodka fueled decision and then I make a lot of stir fries just that’s just kind of what I do like April in a bowl which is really good and then just random stir fries with meat and veggies and coconut oil and then I also made double dates using avocado oil mayonnaise and I ate some of those I still like definitely since doing carnivore find that I crave a lot more meat and I don’t feel like I’ve had like a good meal unless there’s been a lot of protein in it but I went off just kind of for the sake of having three kids home for spring break but it was interesting to see that I seem to crave meat a lot more than I did and so when they went back to school I started kind of going to a more lazy form of carnivore which at the end of this video I’ll link to another video where I talk about like kind of the different varieties of the carnivore diet what you can eat on the carnivore diet and so I kept in some avocado oil mayonnaise I really found that that kind of bothers me more than I thought it would it’s like a healthy fat I thought I would be okay but I definitely can feel a difference just in my digestion and stuff when I eat it or not so once they went back to school I started eating my meat again I prepped a big ol brisket in the instant pot and I have that in the fridge so I have an easy go-to for my food again I’ve started grilling again now that it’s above zero degrees but yeah going off carnivore and then even out of ketosis I did notice that I handle being out of ketosis a lot better than I did before before I get like a pretty good depression once I get out of ketosis and this is documented I’ll put the study at that ketosis does help with depression and anxiety like lots of different mental health stuff and I didn’t notice that comeback as much I did still notice the energy and that’s a big reason of why I do keto and now carnivore is because I just have so much more energy on it and I really enjoy that it makes me just a lot more motivated to do all of the things I have to do and then still have time and energy to do the things I like to do so it’s just kind of a quality-of-life boost definitely got my five-year-old niece let me get on the shower he’s like do you have a baby me and your Tommy and I very much do not have a baby in my tummy and so out of the mouths of babes I definitely got bloated enough that my five year old thought I had a baby in my tummy I’m going off a carnivore then I think that’s back down right now I’m about five days back onto carnivore and I think that that kind of sorts itself out pretty quickly and then plans so am i planning on being on carnivore for the rest of my life no well I’m not that’s not my goal it’s interesting I’ll just keep going by how I feel versus any particular plan or commitment to anything right now it’s still definitely the best for me so I’ve been adding in some mushrooms and cooking with garlic which is usually what I use when I’m cooking for the family anyway a little bit of like coconut aminos or even soy sauce if that’s what I’m doing for the family anyway and then I just pull my stuff out before I add the veggies like the veggies really do cause a bloat which is something that I wasn’t expecting um definitely carnivore is feeling good for me right now and I’m gonna stay on it as long as it feels good but again I don’t beat myself up like I didn’t feel bad for going off spring break I was kind of expecting like I probably won’t stay on carnivore for spring break and that’s something that if you need someone that is a hundred percent black and white all the time I’m probably not your girl so that’s something that I think you can learn a lot based on going off and on different protocols and just like learn about how your body feels so my plans are my goals for carnivore is that I would like to do meat only no eggs no cheese no butter just meat and salt for ten days I still haven’t done that I know I’m thinking I’ll probably do it when it warms up and I stopped drinking coffee anyway but for right now I feel really good on like having a little bit of dairy having eggs occasionally I don’t really crave eggs until one day I do when I have like six so I’ll try to do meat only no coffee even once the weather warms up a little bit I’m kind of curious like there’s that celery juice but I’m going around right now and there’s people that I totally trust on the internet and I believe like they’re not making it up that they do find that they really like the celery juice in the morning and so I’m curious about that I kind of want to see what would happen if I did celery juice and carnivore and we do have a juicer left over from when we did the gaps diet and we tend to get it out in the summer again my kids like they’re all home for the summer and they like to they like the juicer and so my ten-year-old is usually the one in charge of that and he just wants to juice for a while so I might try doing the whole celery juice in the morning I think you have like a glass of celery juice every morning before you eat and see see what happens see how I feel on that Oh tonight one more thing or two three three more things so I I did get sick and this is something that sometimes people feel like oh I’ll never get sick if I eat perfectly I really I just don’t think that’s true or at least it’s not true for me I know I get sick a lot less if I’m eating well but I got sick not like super sick but my kids brought home a cold and a cough and then like their kids like they’re gonna cough in my face just because they’re kids and they do that and so I got sick and I like seriously started questioning my whole no vitamin C thing so I started just juicing a lemon and put that in some hot water for tea and drank that for a vitamin C and then I started taking my multivitamin which is seeking health brand and that’s what I was taking that Aikido and I take that when I eat regularly anyway and so I was thinking like just because you’re on carnivore there seems to be some taboo like we never need to supplement anything and I definitely like my mental health is good I was taking amino acids and different kinds of supplements for mostly mental health um for energy some poorly brain health and I haven’t felt the need for any of those I just like feel super good on carnivore so I’ve definitely cut way back on to supplements that I’m taking but I did start taking that multivitamin that I do give my kids every few days just I don’t know I don’t think it’s a horrible thing to do second to last thing I started I started doing push-ups again so I like when you’re pregnant a lot of times and sorry this both these last two things or women related if you don’t like that you’re welcome to go now um so when you’re pregnant all the times you’ll split right here and I’ve had three pregnancies and I moved a bunch of times so I didn’t move during my first time I got to see during my second pregnancy and that maybe was 11 pounds I moved twice and like you just can’t even if you’re not really lifting stuff like you’re gonna be lifting one was like three weeks before the baby was born and then third pregnancy again I moved like a month before the baby was born and so it’s it’s not uncommon cuz your abdomen Domino muscles are like way out there for this display if you overwork your abdomen or just from being pregnant and so it took me I doing push-ups before I got pregnant at the third time and I could do ten I think but it took me like a month to get up to those ten like I was kind of working at it it was hard and this is kind of interesting so I hadn’t I had that split and it took I don’t know probably two years for it to fully heal because I could feel every time I tried to work out anything in my abdomen it would start splitting again it just like burns and so I kind of gave that a rest for a couple years well now that baby’s five and I’ve noticed that I’m just like more likely I just feel stronger on carnivore and it could be placebo it could be just because I know I’m eating so much protein and so much meat or there could be actually something to it I feel good about exercising on carnivore um the swimming is definitely I feel like I have way more endurance I get that swimmers hi I just like feel amazing I don’t I was taking CBD oil this is another one of those supplements that I’m not taking so much anymore but I was taking CBD oil after I’d have a hard swim just to kind of like not be sore all over for three days and I haven’t I haven’t taken that like I don’t wake up in the morning after swimming hard feeling like I need to take something to get rid of that muscle soreness but anyway so I’ve been on carnivore and I’ve been like picking up my kettlebells more and trying to get my swing my kettlebell swing back how it should be and I’ve also started doing the push ups again and this is interesting I went from when I first started doing it was like probably two weeks ago I’m like I should try doing push-ups again and it does work your abdomen so I hadn’t been doing it but my abdomen has been healed for a while now and I’ve just been lazy and so I I could do one pushup when I started and you guys say I’m not fit you say I don’t look foot you’re right I’m not fit um this is not something that I’m trying for but in case I could do one pushup when I started and the next day I could do two push-ups and then so I’ve been doing this for like a week and I’m up to six or five push-ups for me compared to like when I had tried doing push-ups before I feel like I’m gaining it could be muscle memory because when I got her again I could do ten and then I didn’t maintain that during pregnancy cuz I just didn’t care but it’s been now I mean that was six years ago that I could do ten push-ups for me to gain all the way back to five and just a week I thought was pretty interesting and that might be a side effect of the carnivore diet another thing related to having babies is everything kind of falls down so the Diva Cup is something that I use for periods it’s like this little cap no I’m not going to show you it’s this little cup and you kind of stick it up there it’s sections up there and then it takes the blood and then I’ll hold to the blood from your period instead of using a tampon or a pad I’ve been using it I’ve been using the Diva Cup for like the past ten years and I had noticed then this is after I think I started using it after I had my second kid and so I’ve been using it for about the past ten years maybe eight years and is something that before I had to always kill it up there and so if you kinkle it it’ll stay in its spot so if you’ve had kids your pelvic floor sort of moves down and everything becomes softer and like your uterus is usually hanging a little bit lower your cervix is hanging lower in your vagina and sorry I’m super comfortable talking about this I’m like a home birth er I can talk to you about breastfeeding I can talked about poop it’s just something I’m comfortable talking about um so I thought that was interesting that once I started doing the push ups I’m not sure if it is related to the push ups or it’s related to carnivore or it’s like my body healing itself but like I don’t have to key GLE that diva cup up there at all anymore and it’s like way up there so noticing that that has all raised up which is probably women’s like more healthy position and if you do natural family planning where you check your cervix which is something that I’ve done just to kind of be in touch with my body know when I fertilize back up birth control as well like you are very familiar with where your cervix is at different points in your cycle and it’s just wait further up and I thought that was an interesting side effect it could be because of like the increased core strength because push-ups really do use some of your core it could be from the kettlebells which also increases your core strength or it could just be that I’m providing my body with the nutrients and it needs to repair itself and kind of bring it physically back into the position that it prefers to be that’s our two-month update on the carnivore diet if you’d like to learn more go ahead and click over there I’m going to tell you exactly what you can and cannot eat on the carnivore diet and the different versions which are like more or less strict and why and then over there you can see my other two updates of how I was like super surprised at how much I love the carnivore day thanks for joining me I’ll talk to you later
