When eating a low carb diet, eating full carbs once a week is probably not ideal.
🥩One of the reasons we need to be consistent with a carnivore, keto diet is for metabolic improvements.
🎙Dr. Arthur Agatston is the founder of the Coronary Artery Calcium (CAC) score for heart health and the creator of the South Beach diet.
🩸He explains in our chat that we can reduce insulin resistant blood markers pretty quickly but that doesn’t mean we are no longer insulin resistant.
⚠️This is why measuring optimal health with bloodwork alone is NOT ideal.
⚠️We need our beta cells (in our pancreas) that produce insulin to better function.
🌟Always get to root cause.
🚨When we eat low carb but high fat daily and then have an off-plan day of 300+ grams of carbs, we are taxing the pancreas to produce a lot of insulin at once.
🚨The body doesn’t utilize the 300 grams in one day as effectively as if the 300 grams were spread throughout 7 days (about 42 grams daily).
🚨42 grams daily may not help you reduce your insulin resistance markers enough and this is where you have to figure out what makes sense for you.
🐟I chose to eat strict plant-free, meat-only carnivore for 4 years so I can improve standard blood markers (glucose, hbA1C, fasting insulin, LP-IR).
🧪As I healed, I reintroduced plants here and there to test for resiliency (and to see if I could mentally handle it).
❤️🩹I choose to eat meat-only carnivore on most days but I never eat over 100 grams of carbs a day as I know my beta cells will take much longer to heal.
🍟Full carb days may be okay for some people.
But not for everyone.
⛑Consider your illness, your weight, age, metabolic health and familial history before making the decision.
