[QUOTE=Louisa655;968006]Holy mother of Hannah --- that is a ton of food. How do you eat that much???? I'm just not that hungry but more importantly, I lose interest in eating. I only eat two meals a day but I start with a bullet coffee. I only sit down for one meal a day which is dinner. When I eat lunch at work, I take a '5 min break' where i eat my eggs and bacon, and then I'm back at my desk. I'm bored and can't sit in the lunch room. Again, I'm high energy and I think that is part genetics.
A bunless hamburger with a piece of cheese and tomato on it and a small salad shouldn't be considered a big lunch with a lot of food. Most non-primal people eat a hamburger with a bun and a side of French fries and a sugary drink, lol. And the fratatta is like a small omelette with a few veggies and a bit of shredded cheese melted on top. That and a piece of fruit and coffee seems like a fairly modest breakfast for people who eat breakfast at all. I hope it doesn't sound like I am giving you a hard time. I don't mean it to sound that way, but I sincerely wonder if you can get enough nutrients in your body with so few calories. Then you are doing quite a bit of demanding exercise. I'm thinking back to a Mark Sisson quote where he said something to the effect that the body, when faced with a demanding exercise schedule, says to itself, "Gee, if she's going to expect this of me every day, I'd better hang onto all the fat I can for fuel!" On top of that, if there aren't many calories being supplied there's all the more reason for the body to resist shedding pounds. You may be the exception to the rule in that regard. In any case I'm hoping I don't stall out on my weight loss and have to attempt to eat about half of what I'm eating now! Even with minimal exercise I don't think I could manage it.
