I think Day 17 was the most low carb day I’ve had in a while. I’m talking like 40 grams of carbs. Pretty low. But I certainly made up for the carbs with FAT! Don’t be scared of fat, it’s amazing. People ask me all the time how I have such beautiful skin. The secret?
1. Avoid Dairy. (and gluten!)
2. FAT. I rub fat on my face. I consume fat regularly. Avocado, coconut, olive oil, brisket, bacon, etc… Try and make sure the majority of your fat comes in quality forms. Pure olive oil and coconut oils should not blended with water or other industrial oils nor should they be heated/refined. Animal fats should be organic, pastured if possible. It’s not always possible. Don’t get too stressed about it. which brings me to my last skin health tip…
3. Stress will also make your skin look bad.
Speaking of fat, I had the most delicious meal last night. We live right near a great upscale mexican restaurant and they have RIDICULOUS carnitas. I always order them sans beans/rice/tortilla and sub extra fajita veggies and guacamole. They are magically delicious. I love pork carnitas!
Breakfast: 1/2 avocado with 2 scrambled eggs
Lunch: Brisket with a Ginger Kombucha
Snack: raw coconut bites (shredded coconut, cacao, and coconut oil) something like this.
Dinner: Pork Carnitas with guacamole, salsa, and sautéed veggies at South of Nick’s.
Other beverages: decaf almond milk latte, water
