30 Day Carnivore Challenge : Day #21

Today is exactly 3 weeks into my carnivore way of eating. This morning my partner and I went for our weekly morning walk at Taman Botani.

I noticed something different when we got to the park. My head was clear and I felt light and perky. That was a very nice feeling! When we reached the part where we had to negotiate a slope, oh my. What a difference. I could walk up the slope with so much ease. Wow!


All this time, whenever I walked up the slope, my legs would be burning and I would be huffing and puffing and trailing far behind my partner. Then I would feel lightheaded and my heart would be pounding like mad in my chest.

But today, whoa! I have renewed energy in spite of not eating carbohydrates. Maybe I am now fat adapted and burning fat as fuel? I don't know. When we negotiated another slope, again I did it effortlessly unlike in the past. And today's walk felt like a breeze. 

When we got home, my energy level was still the same. Usually I would feel pooped. But not today. I'll need to make another assessment next week.

Now on to lunch!


I tried the Smoked Streaky Bacon from my bacon haul.


There were 6 slices of bacon in the package.


Aren't those beauties a sight to behold? 


A sight that would send your cardiologist into a state of cardiac arrhythmia. Unless if your cardiologist is Dr Ovadia, who is supportive of the carnivore way of eating.


These are pork burger patties that I got from Sanbanto. There are 4 pieces inside and they are lightly seasoned.


So this is what I ate today - pork burger patties, bacon and eggs. Delicious!


I ate the same thing for dinner.


The pork patties were pretty good. Just defrost and pan fry for 4 minutes per side. No need to season unless if you prefer stronger flavor. For me, the light seasoning was enough. Besides, the bacon provided added flavor.


So that's my Sunday. I am going to watch some TV. And for the first time in my life, I am not depressed on Sunday evening. This needs to be looked into again next week. Interesting.

  3. Yes, that's how my bacon would turn out too....wavy, crisp and well browned! ;) Your eggs must have been from two different brands/supplier/shop coz of the colour of the yolks. P/S: Oh dear, why are you depressed on a Sunday? Sunday is a rest day, so it should be a happy day...lol!

    1. Yup, the yellow yolk ones were purchased from Aeon while the other one is from Jaya Grocer. Different suppliers but both are supposed to be kampung eggs.

      Sunday is a day of anxiety for me (until now that is) because the next day Monday is a work day. I will elaborate more on this in my conclusion post hee..hee...

  4. Am I right to say that you didn't eat anything before your morning walk? What about hot black coffee? Did you drink a cup of hot black coffee before your morning walk? Just curious. Very good that you are full of energy during your walk and also feeling happy in the evening. Since it is like this, you may want to consider eating only meat forever since it is making you feel wonderful! ๐Ÿ‘

    1. Yes, I walked fasted save for my usual cup of coffee. I intend to continue with this way of eating because 30 days is too short a time to experience all the benefits.

  6. I just noticed that my comments have disappeared from many of your earlier posts. I don't know why they were not published. I like the meat patties.

  7. Wow, that's a very good improvement! Maybe you can increase your workout frequency because I think once a week is not sufficient, hehe :P

    1. I agree, once a week is definitely not enough.
