The whole problem with the "meat=harm" debate, is that they are not isolating the carbs vs the meat/fat. If they did that (for more than a week or
two), they would find that it's not the meat that's causing all of the problems in our society.
Of course more meat (with carbs) = sicker people. Carbs cause a rush of insulin into the bloodstream, causing all kinds of nasty problems, not the
least of which is obesity and diabetes. Your body will store all the fat you just ate and because of the effects of high insulin (over time, which is
what causes diabetes), will not release it. Meat without the carbs does not cause but a minute rise in blood sugar/insulin and therefore has the
opposite effect. Your overall insulin levels come down and your insulin receptor cells begin to reset (diabetes is the desensitizing of insulin
receptor cells in muscle/fat caused by constant spikes in insulin.) Weight loss is a great side effect.
Personally, I have lost 40 pounds in 3 months eating nothing but meat and fat (chicken thighs and ground beef). Not only did my clarity of mind
improve drastically, but many ailments that I previously had, disappeared. I was not hungry, did not think about food and had little to no cravings. I
ate twice/day to fullness and that was it.
Without the insulin/blood sugar swings, my mood has dramatically improved and the only word I can use to describe it is a permanent sense of euphoria.
I sleep much, much deeper and therefore need less sleep. I can stay up as long as I want without getting tired, etc.
My wife and mother both were able to get off of their diabetes medicines (among others such as blood pressure) because eating NO carbs reverses
diabetes. After three months, my mother had her blood work done (compared to before the zero carb) and everything was perfect. Her lipid profile
actually improved. After just 3 months (with no meds) her A1C's plummeted to 6.1.
As with everything, this is my experience and YMMV. There's an old saying: Man can't live by bread alone. However, you CAN live by fatty meat (not
