Yesterday I ended up having more for dinner than I probably should have -- I wasn't *that* hungry but came in from teaching, and it was cold and dark so I made an egg and had some salmon, then I ate a couple of pieces of heart jerky. About half an ounce of my own baking chocolate melted with coconut cream, then hardened in the fridge. I don't think I ate like crazy but since I wasn't that hungry I should have just skipped it.
However, I didn't feel that great after lunch -- not sure if it was the liver, how I cooked the liver, or something in the canned salsa. I find that when I don't feel great after eating something, I feel like I need to eat something else to, I don't know, take its place or "fix" my stomach or something. What works better is to let my stomach empty itself out before eating anything else, but my mind doesn't always go in that direction. I want to become more conscious of both triggers and better ways to react when I accidentally hit a trigger.
Also, someone mentioned in another thread here that when they react to something, they drink a lot of green tea. I might try that next time.
This morning working from home was easier. Coffee for starters, then another couple of eggs on a nori sheet, and some lamb. I was hungry earlier than I thought I should be, before noon, but I went ahead and ate 3-4 ounces of lamb, then within an hour had a smoothie (avocado, kefir, two strawberries and about two inches of frozen banana [left out the whey powder this time]). I sort of want a nibble of something now (6 pm) but think I might try to ignore that thought and fast until breakfast. I do better with longer stretches between food.
I'm eating fat when it's there (lamb) or needed for cooking (eggs), but otherwise trying to cool it. Not too hard but I miss not thinking about it!
