But he could start with it… Alvaro must eat carbs for every bite. He can’t eat eggs or meat or cheese alone at all. His side dishes are sacred and needed. He needs his very carby side even for legumes Sometimes I tell him that is supposed to be the carby side for the more protein rich part so no extra carb is required but he points out that most people still eat bread with it and that’s true… Some people eat that with everything. Just like I eat eggs with everything.
I didn’t do experiments lately… And now I have multiple lean leftovers to eat… I am still very curious what would happen if I went for low-fat. It’s the zillions time I have this idea but I never ever could do it, something happens and I lose my focus and without constant focus I eat fatty.
I calculated a bit so now I know that protein:fat grams in 3:1 ratio still isn’t good enough to figure out what happens when I lack calories and already ate record amount of protein…
My experiments would be super short but I badly need to restrict my fat intake. I try to minimize it since 11 years but it’s still way too much. I need to be a bit more forceful. Just a bit or else my rebellious self runs amok or something. Now I am curious and that’s good as that’s a great motivation. Losing fat never motivated me at all (except once decades ago when Alvaro just slimmed down - it took him 6-7 hard weeks to lose fatness forever… and efforts since, yeah, that too, hunger every day, it can’t be fun. he can’t afford more than 2800 kcal and that’s very little food indeed. for him. I would be happy with that amount on most day but that would be overeating. and maintenance but I wanna lose and overeating isn’t right either).
Today I eat fish (the same stuff I showed here days ago… I don’t like it but sometimes eat a tiny bite), liver (I have so much left, maybe I will need Alvaro’s help), pork, I have 2 sponge cakes… If I go for lean, 5 hard-boiled egg whites are realistic too, I love them. I like my whites hard and yolks runny (raw works too). Hence Alvaro eating deviled eggs filling without the whites and me eating the hard whites. When I bring myself to make the complicated deviled eggs filling I don’t even like. I have other recipes for the yolks, I use them as flour in carnivore baked things. Still couldn’t make crackers.
I think I will need some training. And maybe I can try eating lean at lunches… If I don’t want OMAD as lunch is already so much waiting for my food I understand the simplicity and usefulness of OMAD (when I can eat enough) but something in me prefers some nice TMAD. I just can’t pull that off, usually. But when Carni Easy Satiation kicks in, TMAD is more realistic than OMAD. I really don’t care, either works, I just want to chill being perfectly satiated nearly all day.
Gloomy day. Not exactly raining but super humid, I think today is the day when we will try out the dehumidifier function of the AC. I saw 78% downstairs and it won’t change all by itself.
I got home from my walk all clammy. But saw an egret and a blue heron! (And a coot and at least one duck but they are always there.)
Alvaro looked it up some months ago (without an app)… It was some part of the ocean near Australia for us. I don’t remember exactly.
