My N=1 experiment. 1. Cut way back on dairy and nightshades and -obviously- grains 2. take a flavorless shot of calories in the form of coconut oil or Olive oil in the middle of a 2 hour flavorless time span twice a day with a tsp of xylitol in a liter of water 3. take a 1 hour nap or listen to meditation
Yesterday...well, I would not call it a success. Through out the day I did very well, although I was not able to do my nap or meditation because I was away from the house. Then after dinner, and this is pretty rare for me, I usually do this pre dinner, I went looking for sweets. I made a cupcake in a mug (primal and pretty low carb), then had a 1/2 C of icecream with a tablespoon of chocolate chips.
I don't think my body wants to hover in the 1400 calorie range and when I hit that for a couple of days I seem to start to look for calories. I am going to keep a closer eye on this.
My optimism is waning, but my curiosity is peeked.
Fiber: 22 Net Carbs: 64

My Golden Rules:
1. Eat only when physically hungry
2. Eat only what I really want
3. Eat slowly, mindfully, consciously
4. Stop when I am no longer hungry
5. shots of tasteless oil in the middle of 2 hour flavorless time window
meditation :00, not home during the day
Thankfulness: my curly hair, because even when I think it looks like crap, I get compliments on it, and it looks like today is one of those days.
