ellig Posted April 17, 2014 Share Posted April 17, 2014 Hi guys, Not sure if this is the appropriate place to log food and talk about my personal experience, but I'll throw it up here and trust that someone will send me a kind message if I'm populating the wrong area! I just want a place to keep track of what I'm eating, doing, and feeling. OK - here's day 1 and day 2. DAY 1 M1: Kale, tomatoes, onions sautÃ©ed in olive oil. 2 eggs Hungry by lunch! M2: Big salad with tuna, egg, 1/2 avocado, handful of olives, and tons of veggies tossed in vinaigrette (homemade, of course.) Felt like I overdid it, but then was hungry by dinner, which I guess was 7 hours later.... M3: Homemade potroast, paleo style, roasted veggies and a gravy made with almond flour. FULL! I think I was afraid of being hungry so I overate this day. Thoughts going forward, it might be better to just eat until I'm full, and then allow myself a snack once in a while (whole30 approved) than to try and gorge so much. Just until I figure this out.... DAY 2: M1: BIG breakfast, 2 eggs, bacon, kale/spinach/tomatoes/onions, but this time all sautÃ©ed in the bacon fat (happy bacon.) Still full at 2pm when I had M2 M2: Leftover potroast, just a small portion, and some veggies. M3: Paleo Pad Thai - favorite recipe so far! Delish! Today I had roasted spaghetti squash with a little coconut milk and cinnamon for breaksfast, with two pieces of bacon. It was actually pretty good! Lunch will be leftover pad thai and dinner, not sure yet. :-) oh - might be TMI here but I've had some "gastro-intestinal distress" both times after kale for breakfast. Might just be the metformin (dose is upped concurrently), but it was nice to have something different this morning. :-) So far so good! If anyone is reading this feel free to give feedback! As far as my psychological state is going, I think I'm feeling a lot better than I anticipated. On both Day 1 and Day 2 I got SUPER sleepy / tired / exhausted from around noon - 5pm. But other than that no real side effects. Not feeling hungry or deprived, although I did see a piece of cake and was astonished at the physiological response my body had (it literally started salivating, and I felt a very physical urge to eat it! Weird....) It wasn't like my mind was even interested in the cake, but my body had a very Pavlov response. Anyway.... I hope everyone is having smooth sailing!!!
