I seem to think more about micronutrients than some which is one of the reasons I prefer this way of eating to zero carb; it's easier to get the micronutrients. I can't eat either eggs or dairy. Both make me quite ill. So there you go, different needs different plans both working for what we each want. And I enjoy walking and miss it on the days that I can't walk outside for one reason or another.
I hear ya loud and clear
Ya feel great who wants to monkey with that
My zero carb thinkins is you don't need any micronutrients cause zero carb eating gives your body total balance and nothing more than it wants. Body wants to live on protein and fat only and from there it does its own thing. Takes care of itself.
You can guess what micronutrients you think you need in any way. I mean come on, you just can't know. It is like treating an illness you think you might have.
Never not saying any and all cleaning up of the food in one's life is not a great thing. It 1billion% is
Zero carb knows that all plant matter eaten has a level of toxic to the body and can rob the body and if you read the science here as I have, (and then ya have to agree with it
), you follow into the zc plan and knowledge supporting it.
also tho zc is rough for many. Many 'need' sides with meals. Need the extra variety of meal planning and more where I am that meathound that slaps a giant rack of ribs on the grill and am finished. I require no ''leeway'' in my life because of, say, a vacation or family holiday. I want my zc food point blank, every meal, cause I believe in this lifestyle. I know some want that bigger variety and it fits their lifestyle.
It is all good. I just say as a zc who follows the science behind the veg etc...that pushes me into the zc zone. I fit here tho. Many can't do it and it would never fit their lifestyle. Absolutely everyone has to do their own thing!!
It is all cool for sure.
