Carbs...friend or foe?
Recently I was feeling like a bit, puffy, so I thought, hey-lets try that low carb thing again. I did some research and it made sense to try and "eat like a caveman", meats, veggies, etc. Low on carbohydrates, light on dairy, lots o' protein. There are some effects on your body eating like this, ketosis being one...this is what it did to me: neon yellow pee, constipation and my breath smelled AWFUL! Plus I had a nasty taste in my mouth all day and felt like I was eating heart stopping amounts of cholesterol. All a big bunch of not good. And I also realized the cave men only lived until they were mid-20s maybe early 30s, it could be because they were eaten by a giant tiger or mountain lion or it could be they just needed a Bertucci's roll. (mmmmm...I swear they put something addictive in those!)
So I decided to eat normal again, and just avoid highly processed foods, which really aren't food anyway. I just always get caught up in the hype and want to do what works for everyone else but not for me. As always I am a work in progress.
