  • yep, it is interesting feeling things instead of eating them. I am trying to obsess on the good stuff instead of obsessing on the bad. We will see how that goes!

    My "Program": doing my version of a 4:3 - 3 day fast diet with real food every day, with a little twist of anti-inflammatory mixed in.

    • Day 1 - went okay. Good thing this is only 3 days....and that I had it planned it out. I'm finally satisfied. People talk about fat making them not hungry. Takes more for me to get there

      • I would not say that i was overly hungry but I certainly wasnt too full to remember to eat. Nor did i have trouble getting my calories over 1000. I did follow my pre track so i went just under 1500.

              • I slept the same as usual - better than before I went LCHF, but not as good as I know I need to get to. I usually sleep good for 6 hours, then wake up for an hour or two, then (if time allows) grab another hour. Before LCFH, I would wake up at least every hour. So, haven't noticed a difference.

                Day 2. Bring it on. It's not that it's hard (well, if I had to stop @ 1000 calories, it would have been hard!), but it's mentally hard. There are not really "meals". Small feedings without much bulk or substance. But, hey, I can do just about anything for 3 little ol' days. We'll see what info, if any, the trial yields!

                • My stats from yesterday:
                  1114 calories
                  112 g fat (90%)
                  4 g carbs (1%)
                  23 g protein (8%)

                  Spot on! I was not physically hungry. I will eat more today (up to 1400 calories) if needed.

                  • WOW!! Way to rock those macros. I asked about sleep because I am wondering if its the LC causing the lack of. Its not enough to make me stop though!

                    • I find that almost anything can interfere with my sleep. Grrr. Last nightt I apparently lay awake for 45 minutes in the middle of the night even though I do not remember it.

                        • Ruth, I'm glad you weighed at the start of your experiment. Hopefully, It will help you come to some conclusions.

                          • I didn't want to weigh, lol, but it will be hard to know if this helps or not. Of course, if I do lose a few pounds, the questions will then be: was it the lower calorie (assuming I average around 1200), the higher fat, or some combo? But, at least it will yield some more data points with which to go with.

                            • Ruth, FWIW I think for me its a combination of the two even though I am only doing 80% fat.

                              • I liked pork rinds with guacamole as one of the more 'bulkier' meals, but you're right- there's not much heft to a high-fat diet.
