I came across some really great information and thought I would share it. So without further ado:
"Most vegetarians will argue with you that most mammals eat a vegetarian diet and fare fairly well. They will tell you that gorillas can lift 10 times their weighton a diet composed almost entirely of plants while even the strongest among us can only lift 3 times their weight. What they haven’t figured out though is that the gorilla’s anatomy is much different than ours and also that gorillas, like all other mammals, really eat a high fat diet.
You see, the reason why gorillas and herbivores have such big guts is that that use it to ferment fiber and cellulose to produce short-chain fatty acids. Therefore, even though herbivores eat a diet high in carbohydrate from plant matter, these carbohydrates get fermented in their gut by bacteria to produce fatty acids. This is why the natural diet of mammals is a high-fat diet. They have very specialized guts, often have more than one stomach and have to eat almost continuously for this complex fermentation system to work.
If you start feeding gorillas a high fruit diet instead of their normal diet of shoots and leaves, they’ll get the same blood sugar problems we get and can even develop diabetes. High blood sugar isn’t only dangerous for us.
Factory farmed cattle gets fed a diet of corn and soy instead of their natural diet of fermentable grasses. This bad diet makes them fat and sick, just like us eating a high carbohydrate diet."
I have tentative plans to go to the Texas Renaissance Festival this Saturday. My best bet for some protein is the Greek area where they have an assortment of grilled meats. Other areas also have a few varieties of grilled meats. I believe it will be mostly chicken and sausage. Hopefully I can find some real Texas sausage that does not have any fillers.
Well I just went to their site and found the following (ZC) friendly foods:
Steak on a Stick (looks a little dry)
Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Fight the Good Fight and Battle On!!!
