LV, you may remember it better as a Marathon Bar.
That's what they were called when I was a kid - I think Curly Wurly is the UK version?
But all they have in the specialty candy store around here, and they're a lot shorter than
the Marathon Bar.
I still eat candy when it calls to me really bad, I just eat less of it now.
There was a time before SLD where I could power down 2 snickers bars, two packages
of Resees Peanut Butter Cups and then wash it down with a "sharing size" Twix.. maybe
even a Whatchamacalit afterwards and feel nary a thing. Not even full (hello ditto foods!).
Now I actually have an off switch. Well, minus that cake, but I'd never had it before and
HAD TO EAT IT ALL, right? Heaven forbid the ankle biters get their hands on it first.
HM, I count the oil calories for sure. I know that some don't and some are against counting
all together, but I have to keep myself accountable, and I like tracking, so that's just me.
You can keep that curry whatever. I loathe curry with every fiber of my being! Ha!
Janie, it took a good 2 weeks for me with three tablespoons of oil a day for the appetite
suppression to kick in, so defnitely give it time.
Even if I get nothing out of doing the oil shots, I'm going to keep on with it because for
some reason it make me feel good, and my skin is BEYOND FREAKING SOFT, which used
to be a real problem for me.
I hear you on the cake Janie. In 2007 when I went ultra low carb, my birthday rolled around
and my sister, the bestest baker in the WORLD, made me a double chocolate cake. Within
two bites I had a headache and by the end of my slice, it felt like the aftermath of an entire
bottle of vodka. Freaking WEIRD. I felt like shit for two days after as well. After a SLICE not the
entire CAKE for crying out loud!
The oil definitely takes a bite outta the calorie allowance, but pretty soon it won't make such an
impact, you'll be fuller on less food, I promise, probably about 5 more days until it kicks in.
Today I had my coffee, then my oil an hour later, then two hours after that I had 70g canned pink
salmon and 10g mayo and I was like "jesus, shoot me I'm full". About to have my second tablespoon
of oil in about 30 minutes from now, even though I'm still hella full from the stupid salmon!
But it'll really take the edge off dinner and wanting Stupid Shit afterwards... Which we have none of
anyway, but that doesn't keep me from walking the 4 blocks to 7-11 to get it. SNORT!
