Zero Carb Keto: Question and Answer Page!

I thought it might be nice to set up a Question and Answer page for people that might have questions, comments, or support regarding following a zero carb keto diet!

Note that I am not a doctor, this is not medical advice, just my own personal opinion!

And of course, please keep comments respectful and civil!

True Gut Health

Everywhere I look, the buzz is all about the microbiome and gut health. Everyone seems to think that we need to take pre- and pro-biotics for a "healthy gut." These are the same authorities that tell us 10 servings of grains a day is healthy too! But in my opinion, sugar and starches are carcinogens!

Anyway, I personally do not believe in taking supplements or drugs of any kind. I believe that adding foreign supplements and pharmaceuticals to our digestion causes countless side effects. It is just not what nature intended!

I know when my gut is healthy. It is a really wonderful feeling. It is hard to describe! It feels like my intestines are tight and smooth within my torso, with no bloating. When I have tried pre- and pro-biotics, fiber, plant matter at all, or dairy fats, there is a difference. I can feel that there is bloating. My body does not feel taut inside. Often the bloating is even somewhat visible, in the lower torso between my pelvic bones. If I push on it, I can feel there is air trapped in there, like a balloon. I can visibly see this in many people!

To me, that means there is inflammation. 

I am feeling that bloating now. I believe that the coconut cream that I tried because I ran out of animal fat has caused some inflammation. I also notice that my keratosis pilaris (bumpy skin) has been aggravated somewhat as well, another sign of inflammation, and that my scale is showing a very slightly elevated weight and bodyfat, despite keeping the same reduced calorie intake. That too is another sign of inflammation to me.

Luckily, I now have marrow bones back in stock for extra fat for lean cuts! Plus this morning I will be receiving my whole lamb share. Lamb needs no fat on the side!

I am really looking forward to getting my gut back to healthy tautness!

In other news, I am working on a zero carb keto book that I intend to self-publish! It will include answers to common questions, cooking tips, and of course plenty of photos!
