leida, i can blip up 3-5 pounds overnight, so i don't think .3, or even 1 pound, is something that came from liver pate. it's water.
my work week was terribly long, with loads of anxiety, and i fell so behind on this thread! lol. i was not as compliant as i would have liked with my moar fat, lower carbs, but still am down about 1/2 pound from last monday. am ok with that. am still running warm, waking up super early and feeling well-rested even with less than 6 hours of sleep. i also am just "smaller". haven't done any measuring, but my work pants are way looser and i wore capris the other day that haven't fit since last summer -- size 6.
3 years ago, i went low-carb, with atkins, and felt great. in the last 8 months, i have been going with pb, but had gotten pretty sloppy about carb consumption. with my improved diet PLUS lower carb i feel great. really good. some of this may be a resolution of some hormonal issues too, but either way, i know i am on a good path.
my fats have been mostly from coconut milk and animal fat, plus kerrygold butter. i have grass-fed cheese in the house (had an ounce with breakfast today), but have been eating much less of it than i usually do. i think the non-grass-fed cheeses caused cravings and i had trouble controlling my consumption of it. this can be in my fridge for a long time without me even thinking about. i've stayed away from yogurt too for the same reason.
had organic cream with berries after-dinner last night and had no cravings, so i'm thinking it's something about the grain-fed cheese. dunno, lol.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
