Zero Carb FAQ’s

Click on the question to view the answer!
These are some questions i had when starting that i found the answers to. Hope they can help!

Anything from the animal kingdom. The main advice here is ‘Eat Meat. Drink Water’ – A kind of mantra in the ZC community. This does include in eggs and dairy but this can cause issues for some.  ‘Eat Meat and some diary if you can tolerate it’ don’t have the same ring to it. You cant go wrong with just meat and water tho.
I think this come down to personal preference. From what i have read, most people do not take anything. In fact some advice against them all together(unless your doctor has put you on them). If you suffer from cramps or headaches during the begging then Potassium and/or Magnum supplements have reported to help. Adding sea salt to your cooking can also help with this.
No. While following the zero carb diet you will be ‘in ketosis’ – which means your body burns fat for fuel and not sugar. But the diet is different. The keto diet allows plants. ZC don’t!
Within the community it is recognised that grass fed cows are better, but grain fed is also more than acceptable. Some see no real benefit. Go with what you can afford. The keto community seem a little stricter with this.

These are some questions i have had asked of me, i am a newbie to this WOE so i don’t have many answers!

I started the Zero Carb Diet on the 3rd of January 2018 – So i am very much a newbie still.  I did try the keto diet off and on for about 12 months before the Zero Carb Diet.
My weight as of the 3rd January 2018 was 23st 5lbs (327lbs)! I have a lot to lose!
I eat steak, burgers, chicken, pork, BACON, eggs & Cheese. I also drink water and coffee (black unsweetened coffee).
What i eat might change over time as i am still very new. I have drastically reduced the amount of cheese i eat, but i may cut that out all together at some point if i feel it is effecting me.
