    Seriously not hungry?

    Primal Fuel
    I feel like it's a fluke! I ate at noon today and it's 6 pm. I'm not hungry at all! I mean, I could eat but it doesn't feel like an emergency. I'm going to have dinner later and be done. I feel like I wasn't using enough fat in my breakfast before now. I have started adding coconut oil to my coffee and using more butter. My breakfast was still maybe 700 calories. For dinner I guess I'll be eating 1000. Not too shabby.

    I hope I can keep this up.

    The cool kids call it being a 'fat burning beast'.

    I know! It's awesome, right? I went from hypoglycemic, on the border of homicide every three hours if I didn't eat to...meh, maybe I'll have a handful of nuts until I eat dinner in a few hours.

    And then to 'so, I guess this feeling is hunger, eh? who knew?'.

    Before primal hunger for me had always been the ravening homicidal low sugar crash. Now I know that hunger is just a dull nagging feeling in your stomach, that can be adressed or postponed at will.

    I know! I actually waited a little too long because I was too excited, but I didn't stuff my face even though it was true, pit of my stomach gurgling hunger! I finished the day with maintenance calories. Hell, a day of maintenance calories and no binging with two delicious meals? I'll take it!

    I'm going to experiment with some more fats and meats as tomorrow will be my second primal shopping trip! I really think the added fats have been helping.

    I don't even know what real hunger is anymore. I mean, very rarely will my stomach actually GROWL for food. Last night I had the weirdest "hurt" in my tummy. Like, it was just a little glowing spot if you can visualize that. I thought... is this hunger? Nah, It's not growling. So, it got worse, and I ate my dinner salad and it went away. Does anyone's body do that instead of growling?
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    On Wednesday, I had some pastured pork sausage and two eggs for breakfast....had the busiest day of work I've had in my career, and didn't realize I hadn't eaten anything until about 7 that night.

    Now, that's not to say that this is my goal or intention, but the fact that I didn't notice I wasn't eating or that I wasn't ravenous is a good sign I'm fat adapted.

    Primal rocks!!!

    That was me, also. I used to have a blood sugar crash so bad I'd get the shakes, brain fog, and homicidal irritability. Now that I eat primal, that never happens.
