No more salt. High blood pressure, and it makes it worse.
No more sugar. Diabetes, and it makes it worse.
No more progesterone. High blood pressure and it makes it worse.
No more orange juice. High triglycerides and it makes it worse.
I’ll keep the liver, the dairy, the vitamins and minerals. Thanks for those, Ray Peat.
I’m back to eating a low carbohydrate diet. It’s nice to have stable blood sugar for the first time in over 8 months. Will my thyroid suffer? It certainly will. But I probably won’t die from being hypothyroid. At least not this week. I’m much more concerned about my blood pressure, blood sugar, and trigs…all of which are much worse now than they were when I started following Peat.
I’m focusing on nutrition this time around though…I won’t be eating a meat-heavy diet the way I did last time I did low-carb. This time I’ll be tracking in Cronometer for a while to ensure I meet most of my nutrients every day. I’ll be eating a lot of vegetables. Maybe some fruit….but probably not much.
Dear everyone I ever preached to about health,
I was wrong. Sorry. I’ll shut the hell up now.
