I can’t imagine eating tiny meals, so very much incompatible with me. If I eat a tiny meal, I start starving until I don’t eat my 100-150g fat and protein. Maybe the necessity would help with it, it’s interesting but hunger may not happen if I can’t do much about it… And maybe I would adapt after some days? But it never would be good.
Well. I try to go back to OMAD/2MAD. I was horrible in the last days but I couldn’t help it. I eat a ton. I take minimizing protein seriously but I still fail. At this point I am elated if I stay below 160g but I go over 200 soooo easily despite my efforts… OMAD would keep it below 160g most of the time, probably…
It’s 5pm now and I didn’t eat yet! (More than a few morsels and not exactly zero calorie but close coffee.) I did get hungry at 3pm but I was walking home and it just passed. Good.
My bold vague plan is not eating before sunset but of course I won’t be able to pull it off every day. I am very determined to wait until lunchtime (usually around 3pm, trickier in weekends) and then I will see but I need some Very Serious Urge to consider eating valid. It’s the best for me, no matter how I look at it. I have super high appetite lately and it’s easier to fast in the earlier time (like between 3-6pm) than in the later ones. I am less crazy in my well-fasted state. Of course I still dislike feeling weak and dizzy who only can think about food but I often don’t have that at lunchtime yet even if I don’t desire fasting anymore… Fasting is chill and a bliss in the morning, I really love and need and crave it. Well, not crave as I have it… I guess we can’t crave something we have or can we? Maybe we can.
So, it’s spring and I had enough and I am very much determined again, I want to start a new, way better life And it helps to want to change many things at once, somehow I get more momentum, it’s more clear I am nothing like the old me (oh I am… but maybe I can trick myself to some extent)…
We will see but I appreciate I could fast until now. And it continues for some more time for sure. I am fine. Not satiated, not hungry, I don’t even have an appetite, it’s a blessing after insanely high appetite WEEKS. Fasting is lovely now even if I do feel I can’t do it for several more hours.
But I drink coffee now. I can’t just skip a lunch and not even drink coffee now. And I got proper coffee, I mean not my usual instant stuff. As I have a proper filter now! And it works So lovely, I can experiment with various coffee brands I couldn’t in my instant coffee years! Instead of eating a ton and messing with myself and our food money. I even get stronger and I want to see my tiny developing muscles better. It’s a way bigger motivation than just losing fat, I never was pretty, vanity really isn’t my thing and my health is good… I still wanted to slim down as that has benefits (and good isn’t good enough, I want the best health I can get) but I just couldn’t do it until now. Maybe in the future. I am very sure that I can’t do it without OMAD. And OMAD is so convenient as long as I have blissful, perfectly satiated fasting in almost the whole fasting window and I never need to stand proper hunger. As I don’t do that and don’t even wish to do that. Hunger is a very important sign, my body wants food. So it gets food, very soon if not immediately.
I better have great results after this pep talk to myself.
