  • ^. Not weird at all. This redefines a lot. I love to cook, but this doesn't lend itself to much cooking. Not eatig for stress or boredom. It's different in a lot of ways.

      Much, much better.

      I was calee over there. I stopped going in 2010 but still peek in occasionally. Definitely strange energy. I wanted to go back to low carb friends but they banned me when I went to Charles, so I went to Active Low Carber as well. Same name there too.

          Awww, not strange at all. Many of us have eaten for reasons aside from hunger. I can totally relate to feeling a sense of loss.

            . I think this when ever someone says they have trouble getting their calories. I enjoy eating too much to skip it for any reason. I have never been a big snacker though and i am always trying to stop the nibbling which I have been successful with while doing LCHF. I totally get it. Good news is I have finished reading 2 books inthe past 2 weeks. Gotten a sweater half way knitted and progress on a slew of projects that I had started but not finished yet. You need a fun hobby.

              It's almost worse than losing a loved one. It's strange because I don't know what do with myself anymore.

                First off, I feel you.

                When my kids are being asshats, I want to eat gobs and gobs of stupid shit candy.

                I don't know WHY this is, but, well, I guess, for the moment, it makes everything OK.

                Second off, I felt the way you feel above, when I stopped drinking every.single.night.

                I was like, "wow, people go out at night? holy shit! TARGET IS OPEN PAST FIVE! NO WAY"

                Not that I was a drunkard., the hubs and I just liked to have our fun cocktail hour, and there
                was no leaving the house after THAT nonsense.

                But seriously, leaving the house after five to go to ANY store was like, WHOA.

                I didn't know what to do with myself either. Store, movie, long walk in the dark.. Wow.

                • Okay so I just made a ridiculously crazy ice cream, it will most likely throw off your ratios (as it did mine) but it can definitely be adapted I would think.

                  The recipe came from PaleOMG – Paleo Recipes – Chocolate “Peanut Butter” Ice Cream with Chocolate Shell

                  Here is the rough break down:

                  Ice Cream

                  Carbs:39
                  Fat:71
                  Protein:15

                  Chocolate Shell:

                  Carbs:13
                  Fat:25
                  Protein:3

                  The recipe for the chocolate shell can definitely be reduced in half, in my opinion it made too much. You could probably do a vanilla flavor (which obviously will change your fat/carb count) and my suspicion on the shell is that what makes it harden is the coconut oil so you probably could omit the nut butter and still have it turn out.

                  For those of you that are familiar with the dove ice creams that have the ganache layer, it is EXACTLY like that. Insanity

                        Thx for putting how I feel into words. I have been tracking my feelings this week when I eat (Am I hungry before/after eating etc) & come to realize I don't mostly eat because I'm hungry but because I feel the need to eat something if you see what I mean. I've put a 7pm curfew on myself which is helping but I'm not there yet. I guess I miss the feeling of being really full

                        • here is an interesting article on stress...Help! What to do About High Cortisol Levels

                          I actually don't like the feeling of being full. It kind of irritates me sometimes that I have to stop eating something I am enjoying because I am stuffed.

                          • I went on a weekend trip to a local casino and had a few gin and tonics. I also got my period while I was there. Before I left I was 172 now Im up to 176. I am really hoping that its all just water weight. I feel like I did a really good job with my food choices while I was there. :-(

                            • ah, the tonic will get you every time. I am sure it will turn right around now that you are back on it.

                              So yesterday went well, my mouth, well yes the copper poop feeling is there. My MFP username is the same as here, feel free to friend me if you are interested in what I ate and drank.
