i take occasional breaks from this board to get away from the contentious behavior of so few who make it an unpleasant place. jeebus.
i have been low-carb for 4 years now, primal for 2, and am very happy with both.
obvz 3000 cals is simply too much food and if you're drinking oil? um, ew.
set yourself a decent serving of protein for each meal. 4-6 oz. or 3-4 eggs. you can have plenty of vegetables on the plate too, with a pat of butter or what-have you. savor, don't smother.
for now, if you feel hungry, eat a hard-boiled egg or a few bites of meat. your body has been badly nourished for a long time and is greedy for whole, healthy foods. if you don't want an egg, you're not actually hungry, so just drink water. start adding in superfoods like liver and oysters too.
the blah feeling may very well be low-carb flu, so drink some broth with good salt, eat some avocado or at the very least take a magnesium/potassium supplement.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
