About a year and a half ago, my doctor discussed some of my autoimmune issues with me and put me on a specific diet to deal with them–one that significantly restricted the amount of carbohydrates (especially sugars) I can consume.
I was shocked by that because dinner for me often was a baguette and some olive oil! I didn’t really know how to adjust my entire diet quickly, and I wasn’t sure what was okay to eat or not okay to eat.
I went to the internet for answers, as one does, and came across recommendations for a Slot Online book called, Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog.
While the title seemed like a dream come true, I was incredibly suspicious. But it did answer a lot of questions I had about this new diet my doctor put me on.
It addresses low-carb diets generally, including paleo, Atkins, and my diet, the incredibly restrictive ketogenic diet.
But while I was learning about my own dietary restrictions, I learned some interesting things including that jogging “makes you hungry and trains muscle to tolerate more jogging while raising stressors like cortisol.”
I went to the gym pretty often and did cardio. And I ate carbs beforehand (or else I felt nauseous), and was always starving afterward. So it made sense.
I switched up my workout routine. As part of the issues I was having, I gained about fifteen pounds in just a few months. I lost those fifteen pounds just as quickly on this new diet and with my new workout routine. I was expecting to feel sluggish and icky all the time (similar to ways I felt on days I didn’t workout) but that never happened. The best part is I rarely feel hungry.
And mmm… bacon.
The book contains recipes, workout suggestions, and lists of ingredients/dishes that are low-carb.
