    thank you, mama grok! yes...i'll be curious, too. the time consuming part is going to be figuring out how many grams of carbs, proteins, and fats i have. most of the food i eat is made from scratch and there's no label. i'll be using fit day a lot the next little while.

    leptin Sensitive Diet - Week 1, Day 4

    I've been a little tired in the afternoons. Took another nap yesterday. But feel decent before and after that. Don't know if it's the increased carbs or the coconut oil, or the new exercise, or what. But in general, I'm feeling happy and energetic.

    I'm so excited for my washboard stomach to come! I've been biking a little harder up hils. A half block sprint here and there. I'm planning on fasting for part of a day soon. I can't decide if I should miss breakfast and lunch and then have dinner, or miss lunch and dinner and keep breakfast. I prefer to miss breakfast, because if I miss dinner, I typically can't fall asleep or stay asleep hungry, and end up eating, anyway. And it's miserable. So, even though Dr. Kruse says to never miss breakfast, I think I might try it...Thoughts?

    Thanks to Fit Day, I'm seeing that I really need to eat more veggies. Ugh. After 15 years of being a vegetarian and missing meat/ hating veggies the whole time, I'm not really excited about eating more veggies. Also, they make me tired. Carbs just exhaust me. But perhaps my leptin being better, I won't have the same reaction?? Anyway...going to get some veggies tmw.

    I personally would fast lunch first. I found after a month at 65g protein breakfast, I couldn't eat lunch if I wanted to, and I haven't eaten lunch since (two months ago). No hunger at all. I love this method of fasting, lol! I figure eventually I'll stop being hungry for dinner, too, and then I'll know to decrease my breakfast till I'm back at "no lunch but hungry for dinner" homeostasis. Then I think I"ll be ready to fast lunch & dinner occasionally by choice, post-leptin-sensitivity.

    yes i was already planning to fast for lunch. i do that now sometimes. but i wanted to add an extra meal, and can't decide whether it should be breakfast or dinner. i have a hard time sleeping when i miss dinner. i either am too hungry to fall asleep or i wake up in the middle of the night starvin' like marvin.

    Then it might not be time to start IFing? I'm thinknig of my own experiences where trying to fast through breakfast when I hadn't been 100% steady for months already, I always ended up in a cravings nightmare.

    Can'tn remember, have you tried fasting or lessening the amount of dinner since becoming leptin sensitive?

    i think you're right...maybe it's not time yet.

    just eating more carbs has made me hungrier and i've woken a few times from starvation. so i think i better wait. good advice, mama grok. thank you!
