I am quite enjoying having a big breakfast. It stops me thinking about food so much during the day. Plus I am liking only having 3 meals, no snacking is a big deal especially after dinner. Let's hope my leptin is getting back on track, it's early days but will keep going!
keep it up. Change your life and longevity!
I think the big breakfast will definitely get easier. It's just 2+ times the amount I ate before. Like I used to make a 6 egg crustless quiche and cut it into 4-8 slices and have 1-2 a day, now it is 12 eggs in 3 slices and some other meat. I'll get hte hang of it and may actually keep it up for life.
Oh boy. This is working for me. What I mean is that eating a bigger (for me) high protein breakfast is killing my hunger. I thought this was a fluke on day 1 but then it happened again today. I do not love eating a large breakfast, but I will do it if it takes my mind off food. Another benefit? I was able to focus much better at work. I have other issues right now (including my nightmares, more detail in my blog and resulting fatigue) and my concentration has been poor. If eating a large breakfast helps me concentrate, I will definitely be on board. Will continue to test this on myself.
So far I've found 5oz of beef to be easiest to get the 50gs, but scrambled eggs comes in a close second. As others have said, I'm so impressed by the extra energy and lack of cravings that I'll keep at it. My main concern is when I travel, which as a retiree I do quite a bit.

I've been doing this all week but have managed to gain 6+ lbs?! This is not exactly the result I was looking for. I feel like I am stuffing myself in the morning to get 35-50g protein in order to gain weight in 3 days that it took me 2 + months to lose in the firt place. What am I doing wrong? Eggs + Sausage or Bacon (sometimes I add some plain whole fat greek yogurt just for some different texture but not much ~1/2 c.).
I will say though, it has squashed my hunger so I continue to choke it down even though it is way more food than what I would prefer and the results rather suck so far. I don't think I could stick with this for 6-8 weeks if I'm adding back the pounds at this rate. Been primal since last year so it isn't like this is new to me. WTH?!
Plus if it's something they don't understand and wouldn't respond to in a helpful way, then having the numbers doesn't make much difference anyway.
It was worth paying for the TPO, that was only 30 pounds as it was a home blood test kit I just posted off to the lab.
Leptin- well I think we can safely assume mine is high lol.
