Carnivore Habits

habits (1)Habit is when you do something without thinking.  Science teaches that our brain stores habits in a different place than where it stores thoughts.  It also has been proven that habits are not formed by repetition!  Neuroscience teaches that a habit is formed as a result of a reward.  Habits are a result of a trigger that causes us to take an action which results in a reward.  Trigger: we wake up.  Habit: we brush our teeth. Reward: mouth feels fresh. The pleasure center in our brain gets all fired up by the expected reward. We train our dogs with rewards. Trigger: Eye contact “sit”.  Habit: dog sits. Reward: treat.  The habit of snacking can be traced to the Trigger: TV on at night and food commercials begin.  Habit: open fridge. Reward: treat.  REMEMBER: Habit is something you do without thinking.  Swap out the HABIT with something that gives a serotonin REWARD. GO WATER THE LAWN or WALK the DOG.    Better-wayTrigger: Day is done.  Habit: put jammies on.  Reward: comfy relaxed. Advertisers are rock stars at displaying the rewards of using their product. Pictures of people frolicking in joy after using whatever the product, we want the reward so we buy the product.  TAKE AWAY: Look at all habits in your life and remember that habits do NOT require discipline.  Trigger: Driving past fast food vendors.  Habit: Eat a lettuce wrap.  Reward: Pleasure, I did good.  HOW TO CREATE A GOOD HABIT?  Discipline is doing something without a reward, and so DUH – we eventually lose our motivation, and stop exercising, stop counting carbs. Trigger: Wake up put FITBIT on.  Habit: walk or exercise.  Reward: 10,000 steps in, serotonin rush for burning 1,000 calories.  Trigger: a support system.   Habit: go to the gym for social. Reward: Feel accomplished. FOCUS ON THE GOODIES:29791877_10216627377222271_1174465624047601538_n

  • Meats: Beef, pork, lamb, Chicken
  • Fish: Salmon, mackerel, sardines
  • Eggs: Fried, scramble, omelet
  • Dairy: Butter, Cream, Cheese
  • Bacon: Crumble it on meat
  • Avocados: Like a treat occasionally
  • Chicken broth / bouillon cubes
  • SALT to keep Electrolytes up
  • READ: Reader Nooks
  • LAUGHTER – spend time with peeps



  • Sugars: Soft drinks, cereals, ice cream, juices, cakes, candy, pastries, sports drinks
  • Starches: Bread, potatoes (in any form), rice, beans, lentils
  • Beer: Brandy – but a shot of whiskey is ok once in awhile
  • ALL fruits except and ALL VEGGIES

Swap out the REWARD of a bad food with MEAT.  Pour yourself a CUP OF COFFEE with a HEAPING amount of HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM as a desert! Play a game, read a book, take a hot shower.   LISTEN TO CARNIVORE PODCASTS FOR MOTIVATION.  KISS Carnivore   IMPORTANT: Figure out what you can swap out for each habit in your life. “Just Do it” for your reason.   Discipline is what causes our goals to get achieved.  WHAT is your “WHY” to change?  Write it down. 1) Sleep better  2) reduce allergies  3) Get off meds  4) MORE energy 5) Feel good in skinny jeans 6) wear a medium instead of XXL Discipline is the willingness to give up an old habit in order to get a new reward. We must WANT the CARNIVORE REWARD more than the cupcake.  When our liver empties out our glycogen stores, we begin to burn fat. The liver makes proteins and triglycerides / cholesterol, it also processes glycogen and it produces bile. Bile contains bile acids, which are critical for digestion and absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the small intestine.  In time, our bodies accesses the fat we have stored and uses it  for  energy. IF you get red eyes, this could be a histamine issue caused by oxalate dumping. Google oxalate dumping. Leaky gut? CLICK HERE: A Lectin Impact

    If you have the runs, it means your microbiome (the bacteria you have grown in your intestine) is not able to break down your food properly, thus you may or may not be absorbing minerals and vitamins from the food. Try drinking a cocktail of water, apple cider vinegar, lemon and a pinch of sea salt. It should do the trick. Also a probiotic to help the growth of the right bacteria for your choice of animal protein. Have a great weekend!
