Mark's Carnivore Experiment

24th September, 2019

Day 6

On Day 5 I ate a huge meal at midday. Boy, did I regret it. I felt very full and bloated for the rest of the day and into this morning. Had a terrible night's sleep, needing to go to the loo every couple of hours ( not number two's in case you're wondering ).

I woke up this morning with the most intense headache I've had in a long time, like my entire head was throbbing. Feeling weak, slightly dizzy. Some paracetamol and black coffee helped to alleviate those symptoms, so by about 10:30 - 11:00 I felt a bit better.

Ketones reduced slightly but not by much since yesterday. Probably my body converting some excess protein to glucose?

Blood sugar level is up a lot at 7.1 mmol/L which aligns with the protein->glucose conversion hypothesis.

I think I may have been too hasty in moving to one meal a day so I'm going to listen to my body and eat when hungry and stop eating when full. Let's see how that goes.

My Stats

  • Weight: 85.1 kg (188 pounds)
  • Waist: 99 cm (39 in.)
  • Body fat: 22%
  • Blood sugar level: 7.1 mmol/L
  • Ketones: 4.0 - 8.0 mmol/L (Moderate-Large)
  • Feeling: Like crap. Headache, slightly dizzy






By 4pm I was finally starting to get hungry, 28 hours since my last meal. I decided to change it up a bit and have some pork belly strips instead of steak. I roasted these in the oven for an hour at 160°C but sadly they were overdone. I rubbed them in butter with salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

  • 5 pork belly strips (572g or 1.26 pounds)
Boneless pork belly strips

Didn't feel bloated or too full after this meal. In fact by the end of today I'm starting to feel fine again, although I haven't had a bowel movement for four days.

I'm also thinking about a resistance training program to do at home, no more than 20-30 mins per day. Maybe a rowing machine? Free weights? I already do 60-90 mins brisk walking per day. Suggestions please!
