    B: 2 eggs, 2 sausages, zucchini, flax cooked in coconut oil; coffee with cocoa and cream


    S: baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, tbsp almond butter


    L: 3 turkey meatballs with mushrooms and red sauce; salad with oil and vinegar


    S: 2 muffin-sized quiches (egg, spinach, turkey bacon, sour cream, cheese), small handful of trail mix; small cup of coffee; clementine.....eek, half a protein bar at work...didn't pack enough food and was starving.


    D: salmon with a little soy sauce and a few drops of honey, some mixed vegetables, salad with olive oil/vinegar/olives, glass of coconut milk, 1 prune


    Had a little full fat yogurt but too much fruit...which caused more sugar cravings. Need more fat. Yes, go fat.

    Good job on keeping tabs on your meals. On your last post I noticed that in your afternoon snack you said "didn't pack enough food and was starving". Baby carrots contain a nice bit of sugar so make sure you are limiting those at first. Other possible triggers could have been the clementine and the coffee. I had to really limit my coffee because I found it raised my insulin and made me feel really hungry. Monitor how you feel after your coffee for a few days to make sure it is not causing unnecessary hunger/cravings.


    Good job on trying to get a lot of fat. Hope everything continues good for you.

    Thanks!


    Would decaf coffee do the same thing to insulin?

    Honestly, I am having a hard time finding an answer for that. I am not sure if it is the caffeine or the coffee itself, but I'm thinking caffeine? Maybe try one morning regular and one morning decaf to see if there is a different. But beware you might get a nasty headache if you all of a sudden completely cut out caffeine. eeek!

    B: 2 eggs and flax cooked in tbsp coconut oil; coffee with cocoa and cream


    L: 4 turkey meatballs with mushrooms and red sauce; baby carrots; tbsp almond butter


    Sigh...again, not enough food...had some yogurt and trail mix. Cottage cheese with some dry fruit, 1/2 protein bar.


    D: 3 crab cakes, green beans with olive oil, salad with olive oil/vinegar. Very satisfying with all that oil, yum. Glass of coconut milk.


    ***I'm thinking about getting protein powder just for a mid-morning shake made with coconut milk...so I don't fall off the wagon and eat a lot of sugar...but I have to find lactose-free, soy-free, gluten-free!***
