Medowsweet Posted October 18, 2019 Share Posted October 18, 2019 Day 4 I have been having carb withdrawal symptoms: hungry even right after eating, craving bread (even tho I don’t even like bread), brain fog (like drunk but without the high), irritability, really tired around 2-5... I had more carbs and I feel much better... But will increasing my carbs prevent me from getting fat adapted? Part of my wanting to do this is to get fat adapted. I don’t want to be “in ketosis” I just want to be able to switch from burning sugar to burning fat without any pain or hunger. To go 6 hours between meals if I have to, to be able to dip into my fat reserves and eventually lose weight... you know that kinda thing. (P.s I am also on day 3 of my period if that matters) For dinner I had: Shrimp scampi (a whole cup of shrimp but I left most of the oil in the pan) 2 tomatoes (raw, eaten out of hand while cooking) Butternut squash with gee and dates (mimics my grandma’a recipe with butter and brown sugar- 1 cup serving had maybe 1 date and maybe 1 the gee) I fee SOOO much better then lunch which was: Breakfast was: 3 eggs Mushrooms (1 cup?) Onion (1/2 med) Bell peppers (2 small) Tomatoes (2) Avacado (1/2) Coffee with Thai kitchen type coconut milk Lunch: 1 can tuna 1/2 avacado 2 tomatoes (compari) Cucumber (maybe 2 inches?) Bell pepper (2 mini) Blue and raspberries mixed Berries (about 1/2 cup) with coconut cream Snack: 1/2 Apple with almond butter I was like pull my hair out I’m gonna die starving between meals!!!
