Rib eye for breakfast, goulash for lunch, roast or pork chop for dinner: Sounds like a meat lover’s dream, right? But after fourteen days of this experience, you want a simple cabbage pie.
For the past two weeks, I haven’t eaten anything other than animal products – mostly meat, with a little butter, cheese and heavy cream. This means that the carbs were close to zero, a maximum of 10 grams per day.
Over the past nine months, I have gradually lost weight thanks to the reduction in calories. I tried to record the consumption of KBZhU every day and reduce harmful consumption. Over the course of two weeks without carbohydrates, I continued to measure and log my calorie intake to get a summary of this diet at the end. It is worth noting that I tried not to reduce the amount of food consumed, although this caused me anxiety. The zero-carb community encourages both newbies and seniors to stay out of their appetite: eat as soon as you want to eat, and don’t limit yourself or starve your body.
The first result was a loss of twice as much weight as with a conventional omnivorous diet. One of the main reasons for this effect was that I wasn’t hungry enough to consume a lot of calories. Perhaps proteins and fats are good enough for giving energy to the body.
In addition to having a much lower appetite, I experienced a strong sensitivity to caffeine. My overall energy levels and concentration were essentially the same; Alas, I have not experienced the steady energy and focus that some practitioners report. Black coffee tastes softer and tastier. The tea aromas were more intense and looked sweeter than usual.
Boredom was my biggest problem with this zero-carb diet, and probably contributed to my appetite suppression.
