Going on keto again to drop some body fat. I’m doing more cardio these days (mma) so hopefully I don’t die.
Can't have that now, dying is bad.
Well, you can't perform as well without glycogen. But we'll see.
Doing cardio without carbs has been awful in the past.
I did some mma on Friday after having maybe 25g of carbs all day. I was pretty tired, but I think that was mostly due to not having done cardio for a week while on vacation.
@Reinhard Wolff I read a study recently showing that even when carbs are ingested before a workout, only about a third of them are actually used. I always felt more energetic on keto once I got used to it
@Reinhard Wolff the toughest part about keto is the initial adjustment period, once you're passed that cardio becomes about the same as when you're eating carbs
Been doing Keto since the end of Lent. Have lost about 40lbs. Feel better in every way.
Wow, good for you Vasily. That's tremendous. Feelin a lot better?
Yeah, leaner, more energy, sleeping better, don’t have cravings for food, feel more alert. Moving into a carnivore diet though. A lot of the Keto hack type recipes don’t appeal to me as much as they did in the beginning. Now I eat about once a day and eat cow, fish, or lamb parts and I feel great. Don’t really eat any dairy, nuts, or veggies anymore like I did in the beginning. Used to have a lot of Keto pancakes with peanut butter but now I am not satisfied by that food.
I am going to France next week so I will have to find a way to stick with meat and cheese I suppose. My carb cravings have long since passed, but I don’t want to get tempted by baguettes croissants and whatever else they eat in Muslim countries and stuff.
Happy for you! You set a good example
And lol @ the last bit there, yeah watch out for those Muslim country's good food
My lifestyle change has made me want to start a cattle ranch and be a rancher. Might want to WWOOF again this summer but for a local cattle rancher and see if it right for me.
@L1011TriStar I know a few ranchers. What kind of experience do you have?
None with ranching; I woofed for a season on an organic farm but it was produce, chickens, and bees. I also woofed at a permaculture in Idaho. But these were full time bits, I just want to go to a local cattle ranch and help out and see if it is for me.
I have the financial resources to buy land and start if I really want to. But I am not going to leave my normie job to find out.
I would just go on my days off from work to a local ranch. There are a few.
Well if you're looking to keep your day job then I can't really help you there but if you really like it, and ever want to get some experience working with a large outfit, guys around here are always looking for hired men.
I work for a 24000 acre farm near Pierre, SD. I love it out here.
That is good to know, thank you Andrew. You live in a beautiful part of the nation.
I f**cking hate developers.
And this shit is just gonna continue as more and more whites flee farther and farther from cultural enrichment.
What was touched on in the article is that there are state programs to help retiring farmers transfer land to young farmers. Sometimes this is like an apprenticeship, work-to-own thing. Could be good for some of our guys.
There are certainly people who express an interest in farming. The question is whether they're willing to do the work
Its a tough business, especially out west
Who here adheres to a vegan or plant-based diet? I’ve tried in on and off over the past 8 months, and I feel a sort of mental lethargy. Is this just placebo or is that a very real effect from this sort of diet?
Like not only mentally-tired but scatter-brained as well.
@AltRightMick Your brain thrives on healthy animal fats. Your brain is like 70-80% fat, it needs it to function at peak.
Depriving your brain of animal fats will do that to you.
