I'm not doing foods like this right now. Just eating real food and not things that will trigger cravings such as desserts.
Yesterday I had three meals. Each time, unlike before, I got a clear "stop" and just stopped eating. About 1/3 of what I used to eat, LOL. I took the rest home with me both times.
I was with heavy people on the last meal, dinner. One morbidly obese 20 year old, the other near obese, the other just fat. And they are all counting calories on weightwatchers, excuse me counting points, and I'm eating as much fat as I can and eating as much as I can. I tried to explain leptin resistance to them but they don't really care to hear it.
Don't people get the fact that they have a metabolic problem? Apparently not. It's just a matter of eating too much in the past, and a calorie deficit will fix everything. Even though it doesn't fix anything for most people except make them hungry and obsessed with food all the time.
Meanwhile the thin guy at the table is eating as much as he wants until he gets a "not hungry anymore" signal and then he pushes his plate away, naturally and without self control or counting anything. That's my example for the rest of the table.

Lower belly is down an inch! There is hope for the middle-aged middle!

I don't usually either. These are meant as a special treat for my boyfriend as we are heading out for a camping trip in a couple of days.

very nice. I had about a cup of blueberries, two strawberries and three blackberries. First fruit I've eaten in several months pretty much other than maybe a tablespoon of mango the other day. Felt good. I think summer is the time to have some fruit now and then. Probably 30g of carbs.

I ended the evening with two medjool dates which taste amazing when you aren't eating carbs to speak of.
I feel great this morning as usual. I saw an article in the UK Mail that wrote up Butter Coffee. Good PR piece, lol.
On to my butter tea, PART of what makes a perfect morning (the other part should be obvious, lol.)
