I don’t care what carnivores do if it’s about my eating. I am not a carnivore but what really matters that I am an individual. Tons of diet tips are so insanely impossible and stupid to me… And it’s true for most proper diet tips. Diet as how one eats like for anymals, I have very little to do with fat-loss diets as I can’t follow any, only mine in the past when all I had to do to eat <80g net carbs. Good old days…
I experienced that it’s very important for me to eat dinner OMAD on most days. So I will do my best to do it. Those days are so great… If I eat earlier, that sucks, most of the time. I don’t lose fat either way, of course, it’s me but I feel LOADS better when I am not hungry all day. And if I am a bit hungry, I prefer my cutie-pie not so annoying well-fasted hunger over the horrible after-meal, during-meal hunger any time. It’s just NOT HEDONISTIC to torture myself with hunger and overeating on non-OMAD days. I don’t have a nice, smooth option, just a slightly hard and a “super hard and sucky, horrible, anything but that, maybe I shouldn’t eat for a week, that would be easier” one.
I hate annoying hunger. I can’t handle it.
I am not that type. I am impossible to do either. I am serious, I may try and fail.
And I dislike being full, why would I want that? Okay, you mean satiated, nope, nope, I can’t and it would be a horrible idea. Sometimes I should stop before I reach satiation, sometimes I must eat beyond as I can’t not to. I know myself and I am a hedonist, I want and need to do the most enjoyable option so I do my best to do that.
I am so good at it now, I managed to win over a sudden compulsion last night.
Sometimes it’s inevitable to eat early though like today when I was already hungry and motivated to eat since hours when I sit down to eat before noon.
No photos, I was hungry
But here is the first plate from yesterday! Cute start for my first meal of 3 but it did not much for my satiation, I needed my proper meat afterwards. The pork chop dish did the trick (but obviously easier after this plate).
The yellow thing is fried failed sponge cake. It wasn’t bad.
Everything is affecting my progress but it doesn’t matter, I CAN’T stick to carnivore. I do try and fail. It’s not an option. But no, I didn’t notice it matters, I didn’t do OMAD on carnivore either, it messed up my fasting even more. And OMAD is more important for me than carnivore. But I am greedy and want both. At least most of the time and almost.
But I basically eat whatever I fancy and lately I try to control my eating time to avoid suffering… I can’t do anything else…
But I strayed a bit so I go back to a stricter style again. I had very special circumstances I resisted heroically but not completely. I seriously doubt it hinders me any, though. Never noticed it. BUT I never did longer term OMAD before. OMAD helps with everything I may have difficulties with on carnivore(-ish).
So I plan to do some carnivore-ish OMAD (the -ish part being super modest as it originally was and only when there is a super good reason for it, it’s for temporally, I can do it)… And then I relax my ways a tiny bit and compare the two. I need to relax my ways when I get bored of my food anyway but I can’t seem to get bored of meat again. But maybe I would on pure (in my world… I guess I still would use a little spice and mustard) carni… I need to figure it out!
90 days? Maybe 7. With my -ish parts. And I need my maximal determination for it. This is May, I have the best chances now apart from a January following carby holidays (and I never will have that again, probably). So I will try again and try hard.
I know people just decide on rules and stick to it, I can’t. It would be so easier, I wouldn’t need to lowkey struggle for many years but I can only do what my individual self is able to.
So! I had my lunch Scrambled eggs and bacon covered pork chop. Wasn’t in the mood for liver but I ate a decent amount yesterday. I probably will be hungry in no time but I don’t know, my current hypothesis is that pork chop satiates me quite well. It’s way too lean so I need my eggs but I had them. But it was a small lunch (as it should around noon) so I will need another meal in 1-3 hours, this is almost sure. And that should be my last one.
Tomorrow is zoo day, we go by car in the end… It would be 7 hours to travel without it and the zoo is 90km from the house… I need to pack a lot of food (for both of us), walking around animals probably would make me hungry… Because of the walking and the time passing, not because the animals may be tasty I don’t think of animals like that, at least not often… When I meet the pig farm pigs, I still see them as the lovely playful darlings they are. But they are tasty as well, that’s true.
Considering I can’t cook tomorrow, my meat started to seem super tiny so some smoked pork chuck is defrosting right now.
And I really buy some more pork in Monday and a few days later we visit the usual hypermarket for a bigger amount of meat… I have beef, turkey and rabbit in the freezer but no pork at the moment and that is unacceptable. I eat way more now than before. A pound starts to be a necessity instead of a challenge and I don’t skip days.
I am curious about the prices now, I doubt the meat prices changed as they just went up not so long ago, the price cap got a continuation too…
The other items are more interesting. I hope butter prices are happy with their impressive height for a while now… I actually would love to see a sale.
And one supermarket chain (one of our favs) gives points and I want dinosaur plushies for them… We still need to pay but just a little. I can’t store much more objects in the house but I have a huge bed for many more plushies.
I admit we found mushrooms and ate them… Nice but mostly because it’s fun to find them, I really don’t need them. Oh well, we found them and that has a charm. I don’t touch the forest mushroom in cans even when I cook them for Alvaro occasionally… I loved forest mushroom in the past and it’s still nice hunting for them and figure out the species or at least the edibility, making photos but the mushrooms themselves… They have almost no calories and I have good food anyway so it’s a waste on me. But the first findings when I am borderline bored with my scrambled eggs alone, yes please. It doesn’t harm me and now I done it. Next time Alvaro can eat them.
These things happened gradually and pretty quickly after I met carnivore. I just don’t eat many stuff I liked before as I don’t see the point. I lost interest.
I always think I am oh so love onions and tomatoes still and they are so good with eggs and meat (that’s often true) but in the end I almost never eat them and when I do, I may or may not notice/enjoy it. Maybe the tomato but not the onion. I had a tiny leftover fried onions and tasted it. It’s sweet, almost like a jam…!
I think I will keep reducing the amount in stews (if I make them. it’s usually Alvaro) and they already have, like, 1/10th of what some people uses IS onion is needed for Hungarian stews? It’s a very basic ingredient but maybe I can get away with only paprika…
Tomato puree is my “if I get bored of meat” item so the frequency is already pitiful, I don’t even try to eat it more rare, it’s insignificant at this point.
So I need to focus on various things creeping in without me noticing fully consciously…
BUT I still feel I am improving so I am not very unpleased. And NO food boredom lately, it’s so great! And I can eat proper sized meals! (Proper for me, my timing and my needs, goals…)
@JJFiddle: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Baby octopus… I only ate octopus once (or the other times were minimal and I don’t remember, probably) but it was so, so good… And it looks great… I would be just as smiling having one, I am just less pretty
I try to live through you vicariously now… And I should try to find my way into a similar place (and my birthday steakhouse idea is still there)!
