    Didn't sleep too well. Pretty hungry last night. I am going to work out around 8 and then hang out with the kiddos at my mom in law's so this should put off my meal quite a bit. I am thinking around noon. I am going to do a mini meal @ noon and a bigger meal at 6pm and keep pushing my mini meal back until it gets to one.

    2 tall Americanos before workout - no they won't be decaf -- I can't just have one - moderation is NOT in my vocabulary.

    Workout:

    Deadlift/Pull Ups/Bench Press/Split Squat/Dips

    12:00 Mini Meal:

    Greek Yogurt w/ blackberries, strawberries & almonds

    6:00 Meal:
    1 Can organic pumpkin
    1/2 pound 91 Grass Fed Ground Beef
    Cod liver oil
    6 Eggs
    1 small jar Tomato Paste
    Broccoli

      AHH..my workout sucked! I put a order in for some BCAA's with the least amount of crap in them.

      Today is going great besides that - lots of energy.

        I'm raising my hairy knuckled hand, as I do generally tend to advise, "try eating more(fat, protein calories,_____)".... I do know there are many many Buddhist monks worldwide who eat 1 or 2 meals a day, every day, for many years & decades. Of course they are a lot more sedentary than the majority of you fit Grokettes. But some of them are active gardeners & some do walk a lot. My point is, less calories is fine, 1 meal a day is fine.

        I personally function better on a high fat diet & 2-3 meals a day, I grok'd that back in the '90s.... I've done 1-2 meals a day, it just slows down my metabolism & makes me more tired & less happy

          I have heard from a few people that they hit a wall at a certain point. I am sure this does happen - your metabolism always slows down when you eat less.

          I am really trying to find a way to take my lack of moderation and turn it into a positive. I don't think this 1 meal a day is an all or nothing venture. I am thinking of keeping it to one meal a day on the days I know I will be going out to eat with family or friends so I can indulge without blowing my entire week.

          Today we went to a steak house on the boardwalk and I was able to eat what I wanted and not stress - can't over do it when you aren't eating junk all day.

          Thanks for the input! love other people's perspective for sure.

            So here is how the weekend shook down.

            I worked out Saturday..like I said before it sucked. Then I tried to stuff myself silly to make it to the next day without eating again. Sheesh.. what a goofy thing to do.. we had a babysitter and the hubs wanted to go out to eat and a movie - well I didn't ruin our night by saying.. oh honey I already ate a meal the size of our dining room table.. so I had a little pizza and little ice cream.. around midnight and we went and saw Ted..which by the way is hilarious...very dirty, but very funny.

            I managed to get my one meal today late and I think I am finally at a point where it will remain late.. woo hoo.. very happy. We had a blast with our kiddos playing on the boardwalk and riding rides....so fun.

            1 meal a day most days will be my goal... but I don't plan on being super rigid... just rigid enough to not gain weight, maintain and keep building strength..

            I am most interested in getting my deadlift to 1.5 times my bodyweight before this year is out.

            1 - 2 meals workout days... 1 meal for sure on the weekend just in case we go out... feels like a solid plan!

              Wow --- vegan for a decade! I have to say. I commend your commitment. I hope you have seen a lot of positive changes. I know I did when I started last year.

                Well yesterday was crazy... didn't go well on the 1 meal front.

                Today I had my one meal at breakfast. As much as I want it to change to night my body is just hungry in the morning and not at night. I am just going to roll with it for now.

                Breakfast:
                Grass Fed Cheddar - 7 oz
                5 piece bacon
                two coffees with A LOT of heavy whipping cream
                1 cup bone broth

                Kept to guidelines for Ketosis... lots of fat/moderate protein/low carb.

                  blah..... had too much coffee.... going to cut back again...

                  Other than that I am not hungry in the slightest and I have tons of energy (if some of it is nervous from the coffee!)

                    Well it has been a crazy couple of weeks. My 4 year old with autism swallowed some of my mother-in-laws blood pressure medicine and we spent a couple of days in the hospital.

                    I haven't worried about the 1 meal a day much until the last week. I have been making more of an effort to get keto-adapted so I can fast a little easier. I was eating primal, but probably around 150 grams of carbs. I dropped it to 20-40 and have been spilling ketones (through stix) but I am sure it will be a while until I am adapted.

                    I noticed one large meal and a snack works well.

                    I get really hungry at 2-3 pm and then a snack at 6pm.

                    Weight: 123.6 - (went up 10 pounds in 1 week on deadlifts!! usually I go up by 5 pounds a week) I have improved in strength, but I would like to see this come down to 120.

                    I remember the days I wanted to see 105 pounds( I got down to 109 and REALLY lean). I can say if primal did anything it fixed my obsession with being tiny -- which makes life easier - it was really bad for a few years -- I don't care what woman says she doesn't care if she loses her monthly to be lean - it fucks with your brain and body image so bad to be like that -- never again.

                    Food for today:

                    2 coffees w/ 7 total tablespoons of cream -- I turned my old milk latte habit into a cream latte habit -- yummy.

                    2-3pm: Hamburger patty, 4 fried egg, hazelnuts, 2 oz olives, spinach, decaf coffee w/ 3 tablespoons cream

                    6pm: Hamburger patty

                    FitDay Numbers:

                    1442 Cals, 128.7 Fat, 13.5 Carbs, 64.9 Protein

                    Trying to eat a little less on rest days -- but my average has been 2000-2500 lately.

                      123.2 -- Just decided to start weighing in everyday to keep a check on things.

                      Yesterday was OK, not great. I think I just need to bite the bullet and keep it at 1 meal a day to prevent over eating.

                      It is lunch time today and I am not hungry so I am going to ride it out until dinner tonight -- we are hitting a mexican food place so I am thinking guac, fajita beef, sour cream and cheese - yum all around -- no counting DANG calories - isn't this why I was doing this one meal a day in the first place --- geese!!

                      On a personal note - I am looking for jobs next week and super nervous -- I have been a personal trainer and instructor for 7 years and going to school to apply for physical therapy assistant school. I am going to look for a physical therapy tech job for the experience and to put it on my application when I apply (a year from now). I have not looked for a job in 10 years -- they always just fell in my lap. UGH!!

                        Weight: 122

                        Yesterday was great!

                        I did yard work all day, got dressed and went out to a really great mexican food place. They had table side guacamole and I ate about 8 oz of steak and a big bowl of guac with a glass of red.

                        Finished with a few squares of 90 dark chocolate.

                        I got pretty hungry about 1.5 hours before, but I think it will get better the longer I stick to the schedule.

                        Workout for today:

                        Squats
                        Chins
                        Hip Thruster
                        Bench Press

                        Meal for today:
                        2 Caff coffee with cream
                        1 decaf with cream

                        4 Fried Egg
                        1 Hamburger Patty
                        2 oz cheese
                        Bone broth
                        Avocado
