JERF - Just Eat Real Food!

Back on Spark. Focusing on personal development and continuing my education. Not everyone here is going to agree with me and that's okay. It's not up to me change people's minds. All I can do is tell my truth and hope to help someone along the way. Hopefully my results will speak for themselves.

Just Eat Real Food (thanks for that btw Sean Croxton).

Working on completing my certified Personal Trainer course in the new year!

I eat vegetables, meats, fats, some fruit and dark chocolate. Unprocessed and preservative free. And it's changed my life!

I think my diet can best be described as a Low Carb/ High Fat/ Moderate Protein diet with a Primal/Paleo/Atkins influence. I get 90% my carbohydrates from vegetables and fruits so that in itself makes me low carb compared to the SAD. I can be anywhere from 40-125g of carbs a day depending on what I feel like eating that day and what's in season.

I have had great success in the past year shifting my focus onto quality not quantity in both my food and exercise.

Blood sugar regulation is really important to me as diabetes runs in my family. I try to keep my blood sugar levels as low as possible. 101 mg/dl or 5.6 mmol/L is the highest I'm getting right now at 1/2 hour after meals.

I love to cook! I typically eat foods that start with these ingredients.

Carrots
Green Beans
Broccoli
Red Pepper
Spinach
Onions
Garlic
Parsnip
Beets
Radish
Romaine
Avocado
Sweet Potatoes
Russet Potatoes
Squash
Ginger
Jalapeņo Peppers

Granny Smith or Gala Apples
Raspberries
Strawberries
Blueberries

Eggs - pastured when possible
Plain Full Fat Yogurt
Raw Whipping Cream - pastured

Butter
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Red Palm Oil
Bacon Fat

I buy meats at local farms. Pastured, drug and hormone free.

Chicken Breasts
Roasting Chickens
Chicken Legs and Thighs
Ground Beef
Ground Pork
Bacon
Beef Pepperoni

Almond Flour
Brown Rice Flour
Arrowroot Flour
Ground Flaxseeds
Ground Chia Seeds
Cocoa

80% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
Spices

Just read your status. I remember all those post-surgery sponge baths, and the first shower after.. heaven. Hope you are continuing to improve, and soon it isn't even noticeable.

I had a 5.5 hour hernia surgery in 2006,. They told me they had to shove 9 feet of intestines back inside. The pain was intense for a few weeks, but once you heal, you will feel so much better. Take pain meds, and rest. Focus on life after the pain.
