I’ve been a big meat eater in the past, and prob still am compared to most. But when I look back on how much I was eating it shocks me. Some days I would consume more than 200g of protein for meat, & an extra 100g from other sources – a lot of that would have just turned over & been stored as fat. Dropping back really helped, and I prob still eat more than considered necessary on here.
I agree with what you say about this diet not being super low carb, I was defiantly a lot lower carb before I started. I eat swede, buckwheat & others (once in a while now i’m off the strict diet).
