You are not used to eating food, that is the problem! Food is fuel and makes you feel ready to go! Food does not envelop you in euphoria. Food does not replicate the feelings of love. Food doesn’t make your head tingle as your pleasure center is triggered. That is mood alteration, not food. Your central nervous system cannot tell the difference between the ecstasy of opioids, alcohol, cannabis, meth, cocaine or candy bars!
Some of our veterans of Zero Carb:
Many of these people have been eating a zero carb (animal foods) diet for more than 5 years. Some of them are active on the Zero Carb Health Facebook group, some are not as active, or may not even currently be members. Please do not inundate any of these members with private questions unless they initiate such a conversation. This list is posted only after several requests for help with recognizing the names of Zero Carb veterans.
These people may not all be in perfect health, but they have improved their health by sticking to zero carb eating for a period of many years. Also, lots of us have met each other over the years, and can vouch for them being more than just a profile pic on FB.
If you would like your name removed from the list, please let us know. If you feel you were mistakenly left off the list, also let us know.
I stole this from Ash’s site, “High Steaks” and put it here so I can find it again.

But he had not yet succeeded in losing the ten pounds of overweight his doctor wanted him to be rid of. By will power and near starvation, he had now and then lost a few of them; but the pounds always came back when his will power broke down. Doubtless partly through these failures, Stef had grown a bit unhappy, at times grouchy. Read More
I have eaten an all meat zero carb diet for 7.5 years. After about 3 years of eating a Zero Carb Diet, my life got crazy…really crazy. My stress level was high before, but it went through the roof for about 3 years. I learned what “burnt out” means. Read More
