Today thus far.
Got up at 730. Not exactly tired, but did not want to get out of bed.
Breakfast - 3 all beef all natural hot dogs fried in about a tablespoon of butter with (guessing) a couple ounces of sharp cheddar cheese.
I had been eating various meats/eggs with veggie stir fry, but I read somewhere that maybe not eating carbs with breakfast will help prevent early day crashing. So I'm going to try this for a week.
I think I am not that well fat adapted. At first I felt nice and full but not sluggish. But on my drive to work I started yawning. I felt a bit tired and foggy and hungry my first hour at work. Then it cleared up. Made it till about noon (roughly four hours since breakfast), and my blood sugar crashed. Felt tired, weak, all that fun stuff. Had a handful of almonds and two small (about the size of one regular) oranges and was fine. Not hungry at all. So I don't know if that's just my glocygen stores depleted and my body isn't efficient at burning fat or what?
That was noon. It's now around two and I'm eating lunch and not that hungry. I have this super tasty organic chicken drumstick in front of me... Made in a crock pot so it's soft, not dry. And I'm not that hungry. Also have a huge salad to go with it. Going to eat the drumstick even though I'm not hungry. I work outdoors, so I don't have the luxury of eating whenever I am hungry, and I don't yet trust my body not to crash if I don't feed it (and it's a moderately physical job).
