Zero Carb Beer Bottle Cheese and Bacon Burgers

This fun recipe is great to use while trying to tempt non-ZC family members over to the dark side…

Because we have been used to eating a wide variety of foods with a mixture of different tastes and flavours for so many years before coming to Zero Carb, it can often be a struggle for a newcomer to keep their busy minds happy in the beginning.

The longer you do ZC the more often you are satisfied with very little variety with your meals. However, this is a nice recipe to rustle up when you fancy a treat on a Friday night, or you have curious family members who want to try out Zero Carb for themselves. Along with good old fashioned bacon and eggs, these make a tempting introduction to eating ZC.

Zero Carb Breakfast Ideas

When transitioning to a Zero Carb diet from the standard UK diet, it can sometimes be hard to overcome the thinking that you need to eat three main meals per day consisting of breakfast, lunch and dinner.

With regard to breakfast, it can also be difficult to comprehend that you can eat whatever meat you like at breakfast. We have become so conditioned to having ‘breakfast foods’ such as cereals and toast each morning that the idea of eating a freshly fried rump steak or a couple of crispy roast chicken legs can seem a little odd.

Zero Carb and Surviving Social Situations

One of the biggest worries about turning to a zero carb diet is handling the reaction by your nearest and dearest family members and friends. Most will have been brainwashed by years of so called healthy eating advice and guidance that has demonised fat and red meat.

With plenty of persuasion and a good supply of information, most family and friends will be happy to listen to your reasons for choosing this way of eating. The proof is in the pudding, as the saying goes, so will see the positive changes in your health as you go along and will come to accept and support you eventually.

However, letting your close family and friends know that you are ZC is one thing, but who has the energy, will or determination to explain, argue and defend your way of eating to your work colleagues, friends of friends, people you see at a group, or even family members that you only see once or twice per year for big family gatherings.

From hardcore vegetarian to Recovered Meat Eater

John Nicholson was a hardcore vegetarian for twenty-six long years. So what changed? Well, John began to question his diet and despite being the poster-boy for so called ‘healthy-eating’, he found his health steadily declining until he became really ill.

In his book, The Meat Fix, John tells the story of how 26 years of healthy eating nearly killed him and how his diet of brown rice, lentils, tofu, fruits, vegetables, low fat and low cholesterol veganism actually resulted in some chronic health conditions, including mental and physical exhaustion, chronic IBS, high cholesterol and joint pain.

At his wits end with his poor health, John took a drastic step. He decided to eat meat – lots of meat! Not only was he going against all that the medical media was saying and the current healthy eating diet advice, he had to face up to the fact that eating this way wasn’t going to leave him guilt-free either.

Despite his early reservations, the results were truly spectacular with him reporting positive changes within as little as twenty-four hours of eating meat once again.

What Causes a Heart Attack

I cannot say enough about how much I love Dr Paul Mabry. Not only is he a medical doctor, but he lives and breathes the LCHF lifestyle. He has seen for himself just how eating the right foods can transform your health.

If you are going to make the effort to read anything today, then go and read his story and how he came to this way of eating after many years of gaining weight and suffering terrible health, yet wondering why as a doctor he couldn’t figure out why?

His story is a remarkable one and it just shows you that it is never too late to make positive changes to your diet.
