Stupid wonderings with mentions of fruit as we have A TON now and I had enough of working with them… It’s all fine until it gets too much.
I lost my ability to abandon comments so I just put this warning here.
It’s true for all I am willing to do And it’s not just hedonism. It won’t work if I stay hungry. That’s for my SO. But since he eat smaller breakfasts (only 1000 kcal, IDK how he manages the next 9-10 hours without more food) and makes sure to exercise enough, he keeps his 69kg weight. It’s a tad much for him (why most people’s bodies have no idea about distributing the useful tiny extra fat well?) but still pretty good.
Meanwhile I pathetically struggle. More like I forget about rules and just eat whatever and that’s not little… I try it AGAIN. A pound of meat and a few eggs FIRST. And the first meal should be a later lunch or dinner… It suits me, it’s easy and good when I do it, I just somehow mess it up lately. I have found myself hungry without meat to eat last night again. I had my leftover meat for second dinner but it wasn’t enough. Of course not, it was too tiny. My protein was probably quite high… Why I can’t seem to get satiated without a decent amount of meat? I did that zillion times during my life. I had zero meat on the vast majority of my days and it worked. But it’s fine, what isn’t fine is that I totally forget to cook enough meat or keep some in the freezer for some reason.
Oh well, today I cook up all the pork and it will be all well. If I keep myself from overdoing dairy, I do that too lately. Cheese is lovely is super easy to eat galore, it’s not like it satiates me well (or any? no idea. but it should a bit)… So I should avoid it.
I go for a very proper carni day, then take a birthday weekend let’s cook everything I want to cook break and I get back on Monday, hopefully the fruit seasons end already. It was so great not to find much fruit in half of the garden (zillion round fruits vs a garden with high elevation… they are just rolling and rolling and rolling… sometimes, at least, most don’t go too far, thankfully), I really had enough and I needed Alvaro’s help yesterday who skipped picking the other fruit (and I don’t go near the thorns)… It’s great we have a lot from something at least even in this bad year, Alvaro really needs fruit every day all year round so it’s very helpful and I have my fun with it - but I dislike the intense times. I am a bit happy we will have very few pears this year as I had enough, that is intense too (every year except this exceptionally bad one)…
I want chill. As always. Need to catch the saboteur inner self lurking in me I guess.
I wish. I am hungry way more often than I was on high-carb (even though I lost the sharp sudden hunger and that is something I greatly appreciate, the only benefit I got from keto)… Not like it’s fair as I ate a ton of fat there… I know how to be very satiated all day on any diet: eating A TON especially protein and even more fat. I did that all my life and I probably have problems due to it now.
But if I do it right (MUCH meat. even if the slabs are tiny and the meat is lean so I need tricks and can’t just fry up the whole thing… I try to remember), it’s great. Satiating meat, getting rid of hunger-inducing carbs, it really works as long as I don’t overdo the non-satiating items and can avoid meat boredom, I still have times when I am hungry but don’t want meat. It’s not as bad as in the past but still, there is room to improve.
BUT not being hungry ever is way, way more. I need my hunger sometimes. My cute fat adapted one, at least until I am well-fasted, it gets more vicious later, still soft but near unbearable so I obviously never even try to bear it.
Now I am very satiated but can’t get off my mind from food… It’s worse than usual. I blame to fruit canning (I reorganized the jars on the cupboard tops, they always get mixed when there are too many to put them to the same place but now I can do that. I have found stuff from 2018) and my obsession with the topic since I went low-carb.
I hope Alvaro brings many eggs. I have 2 left and I fancy eggs today. And meat, sure but eggs too. With just a little bit of cheese, maybe…
