Gratitude For Local And Regenerative Ranching Support
First of all, I would like to thank you for being such a big proponent of local ranchers and, in particular regenerative ranchers. I fall into the latter category as a rancher at Forage Creek Ranch. We are a part of the database of ranches and truly appreciate your hospitality in letting us be a part of your movement.
Genuine Support Without Hidden Agendas
I would also like to tell you that we take every opportunity possible to tell people how we know what you are doing is genuine. I know this is true because you don’t charge ranchers to be a part of your website, have a subscription or ask us for anything. You truly believe that this is the best way to live, and for that, we are truly grateful.
Secondly, I would like to share a part of my journey. I have been overweight my entire life. As I have gotten older (currently 41), I have become more and more stiff, lethargic, moody, unhealthy, etc, etc.
When you are a rancher or any other busy job, you wake up at 5 am and grab a hot beverage and a sweet something, and out the door you go, only to need something else by 8 am because you are now experiencing a crash in blood sugar.
You repeat this process every few hours until 11 pm or so, when you finally hit the pillow, only to wake up in 5 or 6 hours to do it all again.
Personal Transformation With Fasting And Carnivore Diet
We grew our own healthy proteins but also consumed grains, sugars, etc., and even with all the work could never move the needle much on the weight loss front.
After being enlightened by you on the fasting window and the benefits of the carnivore diet, my wife and I resigned that we would live a new way. We grow our own beef, lamb, chicken, and eggs.
We had decided to consume pretty much exclusively our own meat and mostly eat only once per day. We usually treat ourselves on busy weekends and have two meals. Our “workouts” aren’t as refined or conventional as some people’s.
Unique Exercise Routine On A Ranch
We move animals daily, pack electric fences, haul water buckets, scoop chicken feed, hand mow ditches, farmer carries with feed buckets incorporating squats, etc. It’s a far cry from the monumental high box squats you do, but we are definitely making progress.
I know people have their own opinions on whether grass-fed meats are better than grain-fed, and all I know is that I feel amazing and have lost 110 pounds, and my wife has lost over 50 pounds in 5 months, and we have more energy and mental clarity than ever before.
Benefits Of Regenerative Ranching For Health And Wellness
I no longer have high blood pressure, pre-diabetic symptoms, stiffness, or fogginess. I am by no means “in shape,” “healthy,” or “fit,” or any of those things, but I believe I am well on my way to an exponentially better and healthier me.
Thank you again for being an ally. You’re welcome at our fire any time.
I included a couple of pics.
