I’ve finally gotten past the cult mind of keto.
Oh how that mind led into crazy thoughts of fear rebounds.
I categorized everything that wasn’t low carb as unable to enter me and not meant for human consumption.
I even thought that the only natural diet is keto since humans used to eat mostly organ meat and there were two men in New York that only ate organ meat for years and were incredibly healthy. More on those studies later. Why to Eat Organ Meat will need to be a dedication post to organ meat’s delicious body fondling.
Carbs are no longer demonized in my brain. Plenty of cultures thrive on them. The combination is where the mind gets confuzzled over how to function.
From my self study in The Box of Chocolates Experiment, where I ate fast food for a week, vegan for a week, vegetarian for a week, paleo for a week and then finally low carb and paleo, I learned to not fear food anymore.
Through this self experimentation my brain and body learned that low carb is truly the lifestyle for my body. No other lifestyle makes me feel vividly in control of food and mind.
The paleo combo basically means I go for foods that are closest to what we think the human body naturally desires This seems to be ancestral and location dependent, but I think it might revolve around what mummy ate while you were in the womb. A seasonal diet of fats in the summer and roots in the winter would also make more intuitive sense than doing either year round. Oh nutrition research 😉 Eventuallly I hope to create a diet equation that takes in the availability of food possibilities, based on your current location and time of year, and create a daily diet just by having an ap on your phone.
I recently cut out nuts due to their phytic acid preventing nutrient absorption. I self tested and realized they do inflame me, no matter how much I tell my body to love them 😦 .It still convinces me into almond milk lattes sometime. Mostly because favored coffee shops don’t carry coconut milk.
I just use coconut butter now instead of nuts, and it tastes even more mouthgasmingly delicious, especially if you toss in half a vanilla bean. You don’t even have to scrape it.
I also avoid dairy since it keeps causing bloating/gas unless I get it local and not pastured. Most of the time getting unpastuerized dairy is too hard. Kalona SuperNatural is my go to brand if I’m craving that dairy inside me.
My Top Five Reasons for Following the Keto and Paleo Lifestyle
1. My Mind and Body Have Full Control Over Food and Themselves.
I spent many years of life addicted to sugar and did not even know it. So much hunger would ravage my being every three hours and want to bite all my friends until they gave me food. Cupcakes got to fill my life though so I had that going for me, which was nice.
This body was simply ravished and out of control of itself in its nutrient deprived state. Sadly, sugar blocks nutrient absorption.
The moment I have sugar these days I’ll wind up overeating and constantly thinking of that sugar goodie. Ask my family about when they convinced me into eating one donut and I had to sneak the bag into the bathroom that night because I couldn’t stop thinking of them. A picture was taken for my other blog/in order to help out others who think sugar addiction is their fault.
The brain switches to hibernation needs and wants you to store food. Hibernation preparation 😉
Many humans adapt, just like we can to any other drug, but when you get off sugar you lose those adaptations and it becomes intense when you put that drug inside you.
I finally have no out of control cravings for food. Even if this body switches out of keto for a few days it winds up over eating and thinking of food all hours of the day.
While in ketosis I barely think of food throughout the day and when I do there’s still full control. It’s even easy to eat once a day and highly preferable.
Haha this post is getting so long it’s like a love letter.
The meat or the veggie or the fat can even be switched with no fear. I used to fear not having cupcakes in the cabinet or being deprived of sour patch kids in my backpack. Energy drinks were especially hard to be without. I’d try and pull them from the clouds. It’s so nice to not be paying for addiction anymore. Money money money.
I’m also almost off all drugs, including caffeine, alcohol and grassy things. The idea would have horrified me a year ago, but now I enjoy the way my body feels at a complete balance. The process is slow but we’re getting there. Eventually I plan to make detox week meal plans for each to help out my fellow species that also knows of drug boxes. We can barely socialize without them 😉
2. No More Mental Illnesses!
Those words used to make me cower at the possibility of telling other humans something so crazy. Pshh. Mental disorders are from abuse they say. As a human that tried for years to cure my ADHD, OCD, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, dissociation and a general disconnect to life without any food change, I can now tell you how crucial having nutrients is. Without them your body simply cannot connect to life. This includes memory and love and learning and all the things we believe humans just have.
Hell, I even did a 45 day study tracking 65 pieces of mental data to prove it. Mwahahah. Proof. I would have needed it if someone dared to say they could cure the blissfuck demon in my head.
My demon shoo.
When you detox from the foods that are causing your pain, and then get back on them, you can finally tell where all that mind bullox was coming from. Seriously though, I have a Reese’s and want to rip the skin from the faces around me and watch the blood pour out. Every time. I wish I was kidding. A fifth of my life goals revolve around sticking myself in a room with nothing but me and a journal. I eat just organ meat for two weeks and they put me in a machine each day. Then they give me McDonald’s for a week and watch my brain again. I have no doubt I can prove mental disorders are from toxins in food or whatever all else is in the foods that mentally disordered minds.
I also enjoy just being alone. Solitude doesn’t give an awareness of pain. The pain is gone.
I used to have autofear any moment I was left alone with this mind. There would be impulses to play games, talk or get online. The anxiety at being around other humans was also fierce. Now I can sit in a room with just me or sit outside for hours and there’s no fear. I actually enjoy the solitude of my innards. That feeling just started happening in the last six months. All the years before this just held so much fear in every silence. Cleansing that fear is a demon on steroids, but it can be done if you’re willing to access every part of that fear and adapt to it. Your mind needs the right nutrients to be able to adapt with. No worries lovers. There is organ meat.
3. All of My Food Dollars go to the Highest Nutrients They can Buy
I’m a just out of college kid that’s in the American economy. In college I learned to budget when it came to food. This was a new feat after growing up with loving and rich parents. Mmmm sheltered life was amazing. Learning how to survive is even better. When choosing between rent and food there’s a lot of dollar menu nomming.
When first starting keto and paleo I feared losing all the fluffy baked goods, the nuts, the fruits and the bread. From this fear I splurged out on coconut butter, hemp seeds, gut biome supplements and high quality almond butters.
Yeah…I was spending all of my extra money on food and didn’t even care because it made me feel so good and it blissed me into excitement bubbles. I’ve popped most of them and now I don’t really buy anything that isn’t fresh. No more overpriced jars when you can make your own coconut butter. On the last run I added juniper berries to make it taste like gin. Oh my god we can be friends just so you can come over and try it. Om noms.
I get organ meat from a local butcher and veggies from the farmer’s market. I do get avocado oil and Kerrygold butter as splurges if I’m not just using the bacon’s grease. I just accepted that my body doesn’t like pork though, so I’ll have to switch to turkey bacon. It actually tastes better to this mouth, which double means I should be eating it instead. Taste really does center around what nutrients your body has adapted to. That’s why foods that were once bitter to you now taste like amazeballs soaked in whiskey..or gin. Depends on your mouth adaptations 😉 I won’t concede to the idea of white wine. That’s just wrong. Change your mouth.
….dry is okay.
4. Everything I Put in Me Tastes Blissfucking Delicious.
My mouth is getting so picky now. I cut back on all spices because I feared them hurting my brain from any toxins I didn’t know in them. Organic ones are expensive. I also keep killing all the herb plants that come into my care. Deathcare moreso. So for the last months I’ve just been eating eggs, meat, butter, and veggies with only salt. I don’t even like pepper anymore. Makes me cough.
They all taste so good now though! All the delicious flavors of them get to come fully through to the point you don’t want anything else in your mouth. I’ll even try to combine the meat and egg in one bite and my mouth is like nah man, one at a time.
I get mouthexcitement from dried herbs in tea or my personal kombucha. Vanilla kombucha is mouthgasming delicious. I’ll share a recipe soon. Oh and if I can find fresh herbs those are very mouthloved, they’re just too expensive now that it’s winter.
Oh and extract water:
So now I can taste every ingredient incredibly well and it is amazing. Food has never tasted so good now that my mouth fully understands the meat, veggie, or spice inside it. An egg with just salt is all I want in life, and some oxtail. Right now I’m in Marfa though and can’t get organ meat…it’s really hard to not have it actually. My body calls out for it like the animal it is.
5. So Skinny. All the Time.
If I go high carb for even three days I lose my 105 pound goddess body. I know high carb works for some bodies, but this one just rejects it. My mind also slows down and instead of the 6-7.5 hours of sleep I need on keto I wind up sleeping for 8-9 hours. I’ll just stick to keto 😉
I also barely exercise. I do yoga about three times a week and go for twentyish minute walks a day. That’s it.
This ‘diet’ is totally for life 😉
Enjoy life and everything you put in it.
