I think that's the issue that PB is addressing. Anyone fully adapted to a ketogenic or very low carb diet isn't having a bulletproof coffee with breakfast, a big bowl of cream and berries, a coconut milk green smoothie yadda yadda all on the same day. They typically tend to naturally gravitate toward one or two meals a day.

Back when I was adapted and losing my weight, I ate only breakfast and dinner and wandered around in a daze all day wondering what you are supposed to do with yourself if you aren't constantly thinking about what to eat next or chastising yourself over what you shouldn't have eaten earlier. Once a week I ate only once and even though I had grand schemes for breaking my fast, I never ended up splurging. And the damn cream and berries typically rotted half uneaten.
I am hoping to be able to do this again soon. I think I can do it.
On another topic, hey Paleobird, do you struggle with salt? I have never salted my food much but when I eat low carb I really have to make sure I get enough salt or I really feel lousy. It can be quite a struggle not to forget, and making bone broth all the time can be a royal pain, especially in summer. It helps so much though. Ever since I started having a cup of (fat-free) bone broth before work, I start the day right and feel great. Trying to add salt after I already started feeling crappy isn't as effective, and salt on my food isn't as effective as broth anyway.
