I cannot believe that I am still hungry! I may raise my calories for a few days and get more fat down me. Do you think that will help?
Will have to look back on some threads to see of fun ways to get more fat....
The first couple of weeks, hunger can be a problem. It should get better after that, possibly sooner.
I don't do dairy either, and it has been a bit more challenging.
My new favorite breakfast: 2 oz pate, 3 egg yolks, 1-1.5 tsp ghee. Very filling.
Use lard or tallow in your cooking and pour the remaining fat on your food.
Fat bread (recipe in our recipe group)
Spiced Lard Cookies (grain free) [I'm still working on these - mine are a little dry & I want more fat & less carbs]
Extra fatty/nutrition ground beef/liver/heart - U.S. Wellness Meats — Our Animals Eat Right So You Can Too. [my local butcher has something like it - oh, yum!]
U.S. Wellness Meats — Our Animals Eat Right So You Can Too. [I haven't tried this yet, but it's on my list]
Thanks for all the replies and suggestions! I will up my calories to 1500 and up my fats. Hopefully this will get my hunger under control. Blessings!
I'm realizing that the small bit of sugar I had yesterday is causing me to feel depressed. Dammit
In the recipe thread there is another link in that same discussion but i dont remember what the others were. Also there is a link to homemade non dairy cream cheese that could help with recipes. Think about eating fattier cuts of meat and cooking in oils as well as using cream sauces using almond or coconut milks
