Hey there, I know it’s been a while (I’ve been up to my eyeballs and frankly uninspired to write anything at all) but I made breakfast just now and thought it looked so tasty I’d share with you. I won’t go into too much detail about the food, everything I’m eating is self explanatory and simple, however I will share my trick for steaming veggies FAST:
Super easy: put them in a (microwave safe!) bowl, season to your liking, then add about three tablespoons of water and microwave for two to three minutes. Done!
NOW COMES THE INTERESTING PART
Why no hash browns? NO TOAST? Another simple answer, I’m on a low/no-carb diet. It’s not quite keto though, as day to day all I’m eating is beef, chicken and veggies. I heard about this weirdo diet from Dr. Jordan Peterson, a Canadian psychologist of some note, while he was being interviewed by Joe Rogan. That’s a link to the rather long winded interview, clocking in at a little over three(!) hours. The diet part starts at about the 2:44 mark if you’re interested, but I don’t know how to embed the link so it starts there, however the whole conversation is fascinating and sometimes challenging. I heard this MADMAN describe his diet, was immediately interested, said “Well, hell, I can do THAT” and decided to try it out, starting with the beef, chicken and veggies only menu last week.
Anyhow, the eggs are even an oddity, although I find them to be within the realm of a “modified carnivore diet,” whatever that (or anything anymore) even means. I have dabbled in cheese for the same reason. I’m more after the discipline of not eating carbs and sweets (I especially enjoy having pizza dangled in my face and yelling at it rather than eating it), the health benefits are icing on the cake. Watching my spare tire slowly melt away is a joy and I can report I have lost five pounds in a week!
One weird thing, my thoughts have been a lot clearer and I have had many dreams I can remember and have some degree of lucid control over while in the dream state, both of which are odd for me.
I do not have any target weight goals for this diet, my only goal being to keep it up for one month, see what happens and go from there. Also, I’m not a doctor, this isn’t medical advice and only YOU can decide what to put (or not!) into your body.
All of that being said, today is CHEAT DAY and I will have Burger King for dinner. Call the police.
As always, thanks for reading along!
