SOME RULES TO LIVE BY!
It’s important to watch your electrolytes. If you ate avocados daily and now don’t eat them, you may initially feel a deficiency in potassium. If you stop eating any nuts or chocolate, you may feel a deficiency in magnesium.⠀
🧂If you ever feel muscle aches, headaches, or overall weakness, I recommend sole water. Mineral salt and magnesium spray can do wonders.
💧8 oz of water⠀
¼ tsp of mineral salt (sole)
Magnesium spray– since magnesium is best absorbed through the skin. I usually spray a few times before bed as magnesium relaxes the muscles.
💡Try magnesium spray if you feel muscle aches and restless legs at night. Spray directly on calves (or location of muscle aches).
💡Some need potassium in the day. Find the balance that works for you.
🚫You don’t have to count calories or macros long-term. Eat when hungry. Eat until satiety. If you eat too lean of meat and don’t feel well, increase the fat. If you have the runs, decrease the fat and try meat stock or bone broth. If the runs persist, it’s time for some gut-healing supplements. It’s amazing how much your body is a well-oiled machine IF you let it be. Heal first and then focus on weight loss.
🏆Organ meat is not necessary. Try to include fatty fish for their omega-3s: salmon, sardines are idea. Egg yolks are rich in biotin and choline. Try to consume if possible.
💧Drink water and salt, as needed. There is no recommendation for salt but low energy and heart palps can be contributed to low sodium. Drink half your (ideal) body weight in ounces. (150lb = 75oz). ⠀
🍽 The diet will ultimately lead you to two meals with long breaks from eating but many do not intentionally intermittent fast. Some add fasting for weight stalls. Do what works for you.
🥩 Some say to cook beef rare to preserve the nutrients. Others say cooking provides more bioavailability. I say cook to preference because it’s better to consume meat well-done than no meat at all. ♥️
