    I just came off a fast also. I thought I would screen shot this, as I will probably never see this again.

    65lbs gone and counting!!

I appreciate your expertise & all the great links that ppl have added along the way. You rock my face off! I added more fat to my break-fast and found I wasn't "munchy" after my meal, super cool. I hope more folks chime in..
    Welcome. Glad it could help. I don't think I've ever rocked anyone's face off before. Cool.

    I've never felt so good about food in my life, it's absolutely amazing.
    I began with a fast, when I introduced some "bulletproof" coffee/green tea with Coconut Oil, that lasted around 38 hours, and then began to eat something like 60 to 65 % Fats, 30 % Proteins, and 5 to 10% Carbs.
    Went for many walks and felt absolutely amazing, peaceful...

    Even if I'm glycogen depleted, I look much better, I feel much less inflamed, less bloated, my gut seems to be happy and I feel good about food.

    Hope I won't have adverse effects of being in ketosis for too long since I'm just a young 19 yo man who needs to re-grow muscles after a severe hypogonadism, but I feel very very good doing that...

    Just a question, even if one glass of Kombucha is around 14 kcal, like 4 grams of carbs, is it possible to feel slightly "strange" after drinking it ? Like a short carb high... It's been quite often now.
    Yes it is a wonderfully serene feeling. Just make sure you eat enough. We don't want you getting too skinny again. You were looking pretty hot in the latest photos, BTW. I don't know about the kombucha. Some brews have a trace amount of alcohol in them. You may be reacting to that.

    After this fast would be a good time to experiment, huh? Just add in one carby thing at a time? I realize most things are multi-taskers, but I could add back in my yogurt & see what happens, etc. Trouble is, I don't like just yogurt, it needs a banana or blueberries or nut butter or something, and I usually alternate those things each day, thus the trouble of narrowing it down. So maybe I should make a conscious effort to pay attention to it and limit those things introduced back in?
    You are your own N=1. Experiment and report back.

    I am not doing well at all. I was getting progressively more hungry and feeling disoriented. I ended up in a forced fast on Sunday because the cleaners were in, and I couldn't go cook lunch till about 1 pm. I was laying the gravel pad, and had to stop all the time and just stand and stare for minutes. Then, yesterday, I couldn't stop eating, and eating, and eating. I even skipped the gym, and worked in the yard, doing light stuff like sawing off the brunches and moving bulbs, and mowing, but the moment I hit the house, I wanted to eat. I was afraid to eat pork, because it will have too much protein, and still ate it. In the end I ate 1 apple and a cup of blueberries and stopped the endless eating spree. I didn't even want anything sweet, just food. Maybe it's the dairy that messes me up. I was adding coconut milk to my home-made quark, to bust up fats. I tried cheese and creamed coconut. I wanted food instead. I made a roast overnight, but now I don't know if I can have that for supper, because I had quark and coconut milk for breakfast & plan on 3 eggs & coconut butter for lunch. I can eat coconut oil by the spoon & coconut milk, but I don't feel satiated at all, like other people here. I even ate drippings and bacon. I feel like I mount calories really high but I don't feel good & full or satisfied with my food. What's wrong with me? That always puzzles me. Other people feel full, and I have like a pit in my stomach. Does anyone else had the same experience and how you overcome it? I really want to see it through and re-educate myself. I understand that giving up all the time is not going to cut it, so I am looking for successful solutions. Unfortunately, not having fruit in the house is out of the question. It's like the cravings are not really a problem even. The best I can describe it is unsatisfaction? Meaning, I eat incorrectly?

    Thanks for the link, sbhikes! Sent this to my brother. This is a good quick summary and maybe a good way to get people to try low- carb and get them interested in this way of eating!

    I bought the Big Book of Health and Fitness. It's also listed as "up to date" according to Maffetone. Lots of typos, but I suppose you're never going to get a real publisher to put out a book with such contrariness and so little diet book tone of voice.

    Leida, you sound like you are having carb withdrawl. My own experience was the first week I was eating around 2000 calories and was constantly hungry. I felt weak in the knees and tired. The second week I was able to do more days around 1500 and a few around 2000 calories. I was still always hungry and feeling weak in the knees. Middle-end of the second week I didn't feel weak in the knees anymore and felt a lot more energy. By the third week (this one) I was much less hungry, it was much easier to stay within 1500 calories, I felt clear-headed, vibrant, alive, full of energy, been doing all kinds of exercise because I feel so good. I went for a hike this weekend without breakfast and ate a small breakfast on the trail at lunchtime. I think I'm actually starting to lose weight once again. I probably jinxed it by saying that.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    Starting squat: 45lbs. Current squat: 170 x 3. Current Deadlift: 220 x 3

    So, sbhikes, did you just keep eating fat predominantly and did not fool with carbs? Were you controlling protein?

    I had this feeling when I first started PB about a month ago. It started in the second week and lasted about 1.5-2 weeks. It really freaked me out and I made a post entitled "Hungry and scared". I had to really add fat. Like I drank a cup of heavy whipping cream (maybe it was like 2) with a scoop of protien powder. It has gone away as I am not as freaked out. I think it was a severe carb withdrawl.

    Ye gods, I hope I don't have to do that. I will try eating more coconut oil. If I have to drink cream, I might as well just give up now. But I really miss food.
