  • I appear to be a food black-hole

    WFT is wrong with me I seem to be able to eat a huge amount at the moment, fair enough I'm low on sleep and fighting off a cold but - Lunch about 1ish - 4 strips of bacon, chopped up, fried till crsipy, chuck in 400g chicken livers, then chuck in a couple of eggs, then when the eggs have set, eat the bloody lot all by myself.

    Dinner about 6ish, roast chicking - leg, thigh, wing and breast meat (probably about a 1/3 of a 2kg bird) steamed broccoli, a reasonable sized portion, carrots and parsnips roasted in butter and lard (which is NOM) and shredded savoy and pointed cabbage sauted in butter, a massive pile with real gravy made with cream.

    Then some almonds, 25g bar of 85% chocolate, then a bit of a 'paleo' brownie/cake thing my OH made last night.
    Then when clearing up the kitchen I scraped the roasting pan out of butter and lard and stuck on parsnips and ate that, which was nice, then I ate the last bits of cabbage that were left in the pan. Then I had a banana with peanut butter and some cashew nuts and some more chocolate, and I could eat more.

    I've not even been all that active today, took kids to play gym in the morning for a couple of hours and followed the little one round, went for a 3 mile walk in the afternoon, not much really.

    If I was losing a ton of weight I'd say I'd got worms

    Okay, you said you are able to eat all that and could even eat more. But were you hungry for all of it?

      I don't have any answers, but I'm certainly impressed.

        Hell yes, and I'm still hungry

        I decided I was definatly hungry and not just picking when I ate the cold cabbage from the pan, that's not a just picking choice of snack

              I have been hearing this lately from a few gals and guys alike around the MDA, and I feel like a food-Hoover as well. I was actually thinking that it might be a seasonal thing. I know that in summer heat I eat less and lighter.

                Do you always eat this much or is it just now when you are fighting off a cold? I ask because recently I had a cold and I was ravenous, even woke up at night and ate. I didn't gain any weight and now that I'm over the cold my appetite has gone back to normal. I'm curious to know if any one else has experienced this.
                Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.

                  Yeah I'm often more hungry when fighting off a cold, and don't usally gain anything, it's often fruit I crave when it's a cold. I also get hungry when I've not slept well, I guess that's probably down to leptin (it normally is )

                  Not sure it's the cold, maybe it is though, it's not much warmer yet, but getting there, and the sun is coming out so I've been going out in just a t-shirt a couple of times, and often just a light fleece, so maybe I'm getting colder while trying to enjoy the 'warm' sun.

                    Maybe you are deficient in something?

                    You know how people who aren't getting enough salt constantly feel thirsty? Maybe there's some element (magnesium? sodium? iron?) that you are missing so you are being prompted to eat more.
                    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                      I've had days like this. Usually its followed by a day were I under eat. My answer is usually to just go with the flow and enjoy all the food I pile down

                            yeah, I wondered that too, I have been a bit slack with my multi vitamin and mineral pill lately, I do eat a pretty varied diet though.

                            yeah I probably won't eat till well into tomorrow afternoon now (if I get a reasonable nights sleep)

                            I am now at least full

                              And there is still food left in England, so it wasn't that bad of a pig-out! Hey Rob, want a wee little after-dinner mint now, hmmm...?
