  • How should one reintroduce carbs after eating zero carb for 2 years?

    I am emailing a lady who has been zero carb since 2009. She wants to start adding carbs back into her diet. What is the best way to do this? I suggested that she introduces one new plant food at a time to see if her body can handle it or not. She thinks raw or fermented veggies would be best.

    What do you guys think?

    i wonder what she has been eating for 2 years that is totally zero carbs. seems most things have a least a small amount of carbs, unless shes purely a meat eater i guess

      From a digestion standpoint, I'd think a small helping of white rice would be a good introduction back to eating carbs.

        i did it....if i could do it again

        - take a round of probiotics and start with bone marrow/stock/soup and verrrrrry mashed cooked veggies with low fiber
        - take a digestive enzyme before/with each meal
        - eat 3 times a day...
        - introduce raw veg after probiotic cycle like apples
        - lotsa fresh herbs/kombucha/onions/chicory/sauerkraut etc

        - remember your not ZC anymore and stop eating the same amount of meat when you start including other food....youll get bloated as @*($^ if you dont realize this lol


        the bloat takes about a week to go away...your body needs time to build up a tolerance and heal your digester as it re-flourishes and you body is gonna hold water weight from the newly introduced variety/nutrients... you pass mass gas haha
