So last night I was kinda in a funk and decided what the hell, i'm going to order a pizza. Ended up going with my favorite (it's been yearsssss since i've touched wheat and such "evil" processed food (really). Went with my old favorite - sausage/pep/green peppers/red onions. Ate the whole damn thing in one sitting and all I can say is WOW - I felt amazing and looked great. Like seriously great. Better than I do day to day eating my "perfect" diet. Basically ate a huge load of neolithic carbs, vegetable/meat O-6, and run of the mill dairy.
Now this certainly gave me a real WTF moment and I have come to a bit of a crossroad and not sure where to turn.
Please help me out!
My day to day diet is 2 large meals consisting of the following: Small portion white rice/potatoes, a significant portion of various vegetables, very gelatinous bone broth (with very broken down soft bones that I also eat for calcium), beef/lamb/goat/pork (100% grass fed or pastured in the case of pork), shellfish (mussels and oysters normally) and tallow/lard/avocado/olive oils. Now this diet seems from what I can gather about traditional diet pretty darn healthy and similar to my traditional European roots.
I also have found that I can't function well without at least some starch (500+ cal). If I don't have starch I find I can't focus, have little motivation and my work suffers.
Now here's the weird part..
Vegetables in any significant quantity cause me some pretty clear inflammation. I think any soluble/cellulose fiber in general gives me inflammation. I used to suffer my acne however I can eliminate it fully by consuming liver/oysters and enough starch. Vegetables alone don't cause acne but it causes my skin to become quite blotchy and sensitive.. however if I consume dairy and vegetables - dairy (raw milk) will cause my skin to become slightly oily and combine that with the inflammation - that's the recipe for acne.
If I avoid vegetables I notice a stark drop in inflammation - however it feels like a double edged sword as I'm not sure if I meet my calcium needs (every other nutrient is in excess). I currently eat softened stew bones (from a very very hiquality source) but I dont know how bio-available it would be.
Little more information:
I don't do well on fruits as a source of carbs - not inflammatory but not the same boost of energy and motivation that I get from starch.
Sweet potatoes seem to be an atomic bomb of inflammation.
I find I need a fair amount of protein I usually get around 100-120g per day from animal source.
I'm not missing any nutrients so that's certainly not the issue.
Probiotics don't help and depending on my vegetable intake make things worse.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with vegetables intake and inflammation?
Eating neolithic poison made me feel and look good.
Are bones good enough for calcium?
Does anyone else eat a diet primarily of starch and animal products?
Should I avoid vegetables if they don't make me feel/look good?
Do you think some people work better on a high starch diet (1000+ cals). I don't do a great deal of exercise but I do a lot of mental work every day. At least 10hr of complex thought/learning.
