You obviously need to eat more. Change your food items as your current ones make you satiated too well compared to your needs. Or add more meals, maybe if that helps.
That easily may help. Of course I have no idea what satiates you, I have read about satiation from zillion people and now I am know that there are no rules at all, it’s highly individual. If I wanted to eat more (I need the opposite, sadly), I could just add 100-200g fat without any difficulties… Drinking calories is easy too.
But eating more meat… I do get bored or have enough protein. I couldn’t even eat only meat, I have plenty of eggs and dairy (it’s animal so it’s carnivore. milk is totally carnivore if you ask me. yes, it’s sugary, and? carnivore doesn’t mean we eat little sugar. I get plenty from my eggs and meat too but dairy really can bump the number. and I feel great. plant sugar feels worse). And yes, I noticed the strong correlation between my calorie intake and my egg and dairy consumption… As they don’t satiate me well, they just are easy to eat in big amounts so calories come without much extra satiation. Many people have the same with cheese, they can eat a lot of it.
Of course, some people can eat a fattier 30oz steak in one sitting but most of us can’t do it
So change your items, try to figure out what works better.
If you are unlucky enough, you need carbs to eat much more. In my case, just a wee bit makes me hungrier. It’s still keto for me but I easily eat at a big surplus (at least occasionally, never overate on keto for longer term. I probably could do it if I wanted. when could I say no to some butter when I had a reason not to keep myself from the treat? scratchings work too but they satiate me more for some reason. I blame the protein in it).
I never could eat lots of meat. I used to have 0.25-0.5 pound in the beginning! Okay, that was a bit tough even for me who adored eggs and dairy.
Years later I am around a pound a day at least but that’s it. I just don’t want much more on average and I doubt I ever will go higher. But I never want to abandon my eggs and dairy and if it’s just calories, I can eat a lot of extra fat.
So I don’t think you need a ton of meat every day especially in one sitting. If your protein need is higher than mine, that still isn’t a problem, I eat 130-220g protein a day and never a ton of meat (except my few 1kg pork shoulder days). But I do have eggs and dairy I couldn’t do 3 carnivore days without them but I prefer to have them every day of the year. I try to keep them low though to avoid protein overeating and fat overeating. I don’t care about carbs on carnivore, it’s never too high anyway.
Or if you want to keep to meat, use different kinds? Pork, fowl, ruminant meat, fish, organs, shrimps, they are all very different from each other. The cuts can be very different, fishes are different, organs are… But these all in huge variety? Even I would be willing to try a meat only week if I had a really big variety with various seafood and ruminants! (I would still miss my other items but I wouldn’t be super bored of meat, probably.)
I can’t have such a variety so I add some processed meats too, they are so easy to eat! They just spice up my diet, I never would eat them in bigger amounts.
Or is it not variety just fullness that keeps you from eating much meat? What if you wait a bit or lot and have more meals, I mentioned that already… But if you get enough protein, you just need to add more fat…
Good luck to figure it out! It’s so sad when one need to leave a good woe because fat-loss just don’t stop
It doesn’t work that way. These numbers are fine for some - while others may look truly emacinated after losing a bunch of muscle too. There is personal taste as well. And maybe it’s not the current state but fear from the truly bad future if it continues… I wouldn’t accept it either if I wanted no fat-loss and would have gotten it especially quickly.
I looked back, OMG, that’s a quick fat-loss!
I definitely wouldn’t want to be 63kg for 183 (no matter if I was a male or female) and it has nothing to do with eyes and pudginess. That’s way too little muscle and probably a horrid scrawny figure (depends on the individual, obviously! it surely suits some!).
63kg sounds nice to me, for me, I am 163cm (and female but it matters little IMO, males tend to have a bit more muscles naturally but females have extra fatty parts and they easily balance each other out. but there is a big individual factor on top of it anyway) I need to get much more muscles for that to be lean enough… I would want 80-100kg as a 183cm male but again, it depends. Shoulder width, how dry I should go for a six pack (I know not everyone can get them but I surely would try. but I like some padding and a comfortable life, not suffering below 10% BF so genetics would decide)… And my abilities to go near natural maximum musculature and keep a low enough body fat… That’s not easy and I am lazy and a hedonist in a way that eating gives me more joy than a really nice body but I want both please
But I got carried away Nice topic. I should go and do my full body workout already, I forgot about it in my forum/food addiction. Hopefully I will be more pumped out this time. I really want those muscles. So when this fat miraculously goes away, I will have something, not just some sticks. I dislike spaghetti arms and so many women have them (the fat ones has sausage ones though).
