i hear you on the obsessive thing. in the past i've accidentally discovered how low carb i really was by sticking my food thru a tracker when i was cutting. and i was like wtf <12g carbs today?! i also accidentally found out how high phosphorus my diet was by seeing the steak and eggs breakdown and wondering. so yeah. i dont usually track or count anything. i just food evade in certain cases.Part of me doesn't want to think about it because I don't want to get too obsessive
So do you actually eat Peat? Im never sure who's actually following the woe and who's just popping into the Peat thread for a chat!
not really Peating. more finding my way. i am the poster child for the dodgyness of low carb as i have the slow weight creep, the lack of energy, the sugar cravings and crashes, bad sleep patterns etc. i noticed too all the VLC peeps do not exercise as much as i do and i enjoy exercise, it's not a burden to keep me thin. i really do not like rice or bananas and the whole idea of "safe starches" seems kinda bizarre. i am not overly enamoured with sugar but i can do fruit. love my coffee. prefer leaner cuts of meat to the fatty ones anyways. never liked bacon, i so dont get the big thing with that either. chicken i prefer the broth to the meat. oily fish i have to have smoked before i like it. love shellfish. i have always supplemented with gelatin on an erratic basis so aspects of peat are very appealing. i also maintain tobacco is nowhere near as bad as it is made out. plus i have/had an 18kg box of oranges to get thru, a gamey stag and stuff all money the last week or so.
