The whole idea that I would have to count calories has my stomach churning…but I know that there is a limit and that there is a connection to BMR as well. I would like to get an idea where my “limit” is, but it seems so difficult to really know since our bodies, hormones, gut and all of the complex bits, utilize the energy in ways that we don’t yet understand…
Letting hunger be your guide, and recognizing real hunger is one piece of the puzzle certainly.
This is all a curious observation for me, and I may take a little walk down this path myself if it continues to show positive results. I’d love to get that BMR elevated and keep it there! Thanks you so much for your sharing your efforts.
Oh, and I agree, I think that keeping your fat high and lowering the protein could be why you have felt a little less hunger the last few days.
