How long did it take everyone to not feel so hungry?
I'm on day 8 with good fat marcros but still hungry.
My hunger levels fluctuate cyclically. But my hunger is not the same as before I started this. I can let a hunger signal go and I won't get weak or ill. But the change was gradual. Of course I also lowered my carbs gradually too. somewhere between one and two weeks maybe.
Thanks Kymma and Demuralist.
I also seem to remember that for the first week or so, I didn't really pay attention to the calories, just added a bit of fat when I was hungry, it slowly settled down.
According to Dr. Ede, the P & V formula gave her too much protein to reach the 4.0 mmol. That is why I was looking at the .36 x weight (I chose goal weight) from the Institute of Medicine.
You know what pisses me off...My Mom died of ovarian cancer 16 months ago. I sort of knew that low carb was the way to go and we extended her life a few years, but of course I wonder if we had just gone that extra mile...
Well, cancer risk is my main reason for taking on this extreme NK lifestyle. Hope I can remember that next time I want to binge.
