First of all, I didn’t actually ask for advice. I said I’d love to hear updates from people following the thread.
Second, the main guidance I’ve heard is eat carnivore foods to satiety. That is what I am doing. I never count or even think about calories, but after your post I did some quick calculations. I think your calculation of 800 calories is off as it doesn’t take into account the heavy cream, probably about 300 calories, or the copious amounts of bacon grease the bacon and eggs are fried in.
But more importantly, I am eating to satiety, and have been for the 5 months I have been following this WOE (or some variation on it). I have typically eaten two meals a day during this time - the first bacon and eggs, as described, and the second beef of some kind. On many days the second meal is a 10 oz steak. There have been periods when I was hungrier and found the 10 ounce steak was not enough, so I ate more. Lately I have been feeling less hungry and found myself unable to finish the steak. So for the past few days I didn’t bother to cook the steak and just ate some already cooked roast beef. I didn’t bother to weigh it because that doesn’t matter to me. I eat to satiety.
I don’t think you are getting the point that I am not reducing my food intake to lose weight. I am eating as much as my body wants. I have no doubt that what it wants will shift, and if I get hungrier I will eat more. Without carb cravings getting in the way, I trust my body’s signals.
I am not going to force myself to eat a certain number of pounds that are prescribed on an Internet forum if that is not the amount of food I need. And, anyway, I have no need to ask anyone how much to eat. My body tells me that.
Just want to say in general that I find your tone to be inappropriate and really don’t know what is going on with that. I scrolled up to one of your posts above, in which you said “If anyone says you are doing it wrong, them to shut up.” It was hard to believe I was hearing from the same person. If you had a concern that I was not eating enough, you could have inquired more about that, rather than assuming I was attempting to starve myself to lose weight.
