    • Not hungry today! Had a Mojo bar and a GT Synergy cherry chia kombucha. Food is uninteresting today. Unintentionally IFing. That means its time to scale back the BAB! YES! Well, I guess I already scaled it back since I haven't had breakfast. Or lunch. Tomorrow...7 eggs! Instead of 8! One at a time until I'm eating at least twice a day.

      • BAB: shake with 7 eggs, banana, Tbsp Dagoba Cacao, 2 Tbsp Justin's Honey Almond Butter, filtered water. Almond Butter + water = unsifted almond milk, right?

        Good shake. Didn't taste chocolatey, so would have to up the cacao, for that delicious chocolate banana flavor. Now the flavor is very light and mild. A little full, don't know if I'm overfull yet. Maybe. I have instant coffee packets, so I could add those for a kick.

        One thing that's happening with this, is that even though I still have insomnia, I'm waking up earlier and earlier. I think my body is getting the message that morning is the time to get a cortisol boost. Pretty good! Hopefully I'll start getting to sleep earlier and earlier too!

        EDIT: This AM's shake was still 50g of ptn: 42g from the eggs, the rest from the almond butter!

        • Blergh. Not into shakes with raw eggs. Don't feel good afterwards. I don't feel sick, per se, just heavy and dull.

          Okay, back to eggs and bacon!

          • Teeth are feeling demineralized. Feeling rough, and I feel a minute chip on my left front tooth. This happened before when I ate a lot of almonds. Now, I'm eating a lot of almond butter.

            Will have to get some cod liver oil. And maybe switch from almond butter to cashew butter. Grrr...

              My son was too. I can't help but wonder if things would have been different if I had found this lifestyle prior to getting pregnant. I wish I had.

              It's closer to 15-20. 8 in just the last week (but that was bloat, so not sure it counts).

              Get a glass wide base juice cup. Put a tiny bit of water in the bottom. Add an egg. Bring a bit of water in a pan to a boil (like 1 1/2 inches of water). Set the cup and egg in the water. This will work as a double boiler and poach your egg without losing the whites. If you have a way to keep the cup elevated off the bottom of the pan, that would be ideal to prevent breaking the glass. then you can eat the egg directly from the cup and won't lose any white.

              • 15-20? Jeebus, glad I gave up dairy! If I don't have my Justin's honey almond butter, then I'd be on Whole30...

                I had a tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis booster. Whooping cough is going around here.

                  • Sleepy and it's a quarter after 9! Yes! Pray for me...that I fall asleep quickly, sleep through the night, and wake up refreshed!

                    • Fell asleep pretty quickly, but slept in. Ah well!

                      Had a regular breakfast, but fell short of 50g of ptn because my bacon went bad...boo...

                      • My Vital Farms pastured eggs have a much stronger shell and a more golden taller yolk than other eggs, even organic Omega-3 eggs. I would like to have these eggs be my only eggs. They're $7 a dozen, whoo!

                          • I've seen a lot of IIFYM stuff on Instagram. It seems like if you don't have glucose issues, and DO have binge-eating issues, it might be helpful.
