55y/o postmenopausal small framed pretty sedentary (only exercise is walking wee dog ~2h/day) lady, keto since Aug 2017, great success both weight loss (am now 116lb) and other benefits galore. Dropped cheese and veg past few (2-ish?) months to break stall (was 122) and get to goal (110). Feel fantastic.
I’ve been eating once/24h for close to two years now and have gone 48h many, many times and 72h maybe…10? times EASY AS PIE -erm, I mean bacon - until NOW
My appetite since dropping the cheese and veg was at first lowered even more than usual (wasn’t getting hungry until around hour 28); however the past maybe 10 days or so it is increasing again (no increased exercise nor other factors) to where by hour 24 I am very ready to eat and have been unable to go to 48h. I mean, not really “unable” but unable to do so easily and comfortably (no cravings, no ravenous hunger) as formerly.
I’m eating aplenty; yesterday I had: a steak, two hotdogs and almost an entire 8oz stick pepperoni. I’ve never counted cals nor macros.
