“not difficult to do; just train body how”

You will want lean into really nutrient-dense food
-it is NOT calorie-restriction!

-it IS time-restricted eating
-need to eat good quality food

“that is why I love pairing:
-carnivore with
-time-restricted eating”

A lot of people, doing this approach:
“I’m not hungry”
-big challenge
-ketogenic eating system: ketones turn off hunger

-need to learn to eat right foods,
whether hungry or not

“this is why meat is a great thing
to pair with your
time-restricted eating”

-we live in mineral-depleted time
-food not being grown in mineral-rich soil
-chemicals in our environment that block receptors
-you might have to add mineral supplement

“train yourself to eat in the window;
the more nutrient-dense foods,
the easier it will be”
