I wrote this yesterday but only now uploaded the pic for it.
I am barely back and I still have good satiation. I suppose I came back quickly enough but my zillion calories 2 days ago may have some effect too. But nope, it’s the definitely carnivore(-ish) satiation feeling I never got on my old keto, only very close to carnviore. It’s still odd.
I had a pretty okay day, 2 eggs for lunch (quite unusual but it was enough) and a substantial dinner.
I managed to consume 2 oz meat, oh my, I didn’t realize it will be that low but what can I do? I LOVED my eggs and sour cream today and my food was enough…
The fried ground pork/egg mix was a bit dry but that’s what sour cream is for… I could hold my not-pizza but it was soft, not crunchy at all but I expected that. Good tasting just dry. It was okay but I can do so much better.
The egg+skin was good (and spicy) and I made a fried boiled egg for fun and for the sake of my photo.
The brown thing is a boiled+fried egg, not a really exciting thing but I had to try.
Tomorrow I do my best to eat poor lean pork I instinctively avoid despite it’s not that bad. I merely rather eat eggs now, it seems. I am like this, I need my properly fatty meat to eat meat Or organ meat, lean but still so very nice!
I need to be more active tomorrow. I went out for 2 lil walk, couldn’t run due to
- too hot weather (I am not used to this…)
- full belly
And my arms are aching from my tiny workout yesterday with baby weights and abandoned the other half of my workout. I am supposed to do them at once but well, I am not always that good. I will remember this tiny muscles -> bit muscles the other day (I never did this before, just the reversed thing, that was fine) can’t work. Mowing the lawn doesn’t help, this new hand-held tool makes my upper arm muscles aching just like lifting. I felt the effect of the previous one in my lower arm muscles.
So I need to balance everything out somehow.
No food topic beyond this point (well vegetables and fruits will be mentioned but mostly as plants in my garden). It’s May and my garden is very active! The grass and the weeds grow like crazy, we have lots of warmth, sunshine and regular rain.
Nice plant, @Karen18! I learned sensitive plants are totally doomed with me but I have only very resilient ones Sometimes I even remember to water them, only the leanders were upset in the winter in the first years, now I know they must be watered super often. They are outside since some time, drinking their extra nutrients to make pretty flowers!
My tiny tomato and pepper plants basically all died. Or they got even smaller than they were when I put them into the soil outside (they kept dying inside because I forgot to water them EVERY DAY… but the second… or third bunch was luckier and perky though tiny) and I don’t see them. I don’t know why it never works for me, I really did my best. Sigh.
My garden really isn’t good for veggies but I had tomatoes before, it’s fine, I just can’t make a big plant from a tiny seed easily. It usually a total fail, some grows though and it’s all good then except too much rain destroys the fruits. My garden is great for fruits (the not vegetable ones) and decorative plants (well fruits are very decorative even when they are flowers. and I actually have a few bean plants only for their pretty flowers, we always had them around the shed when I was a kid, red and white. the kind that climbs, of course). I have some wonderful pansies. Super cheap flowers (maybe $.6 each, fully grown flowering beauties) with big variety, I have 4 very different ones now. And they are overachievers!!! We bought them with 2-3 big pretty flowers on each and now they have, like, 6. Prettier than at the shop, how amazing is that? And I just put them into the soil and watered them.
But my sorrels are the easiest theoretically vegetables, they just grow all by themselves, no watering or anything else is needed (just taking off the flowers if I don’t want that but it doesn’t matter much if we don’t eat them anyway). Alvaro doesn’t like sorrel and I don’t really know what to do with it so they are just there as leaves And later flowers, only leaves now… But we had them when I was a kid and I liked sorrels over spinach and it takes zero work and it’s green so it’s a nice look among the grass. The violets always try to suffocate poor ones but this is life… They still live.
Tulip time is kind of over (I don’t have late tulips ) but I will have zillion oxeye daisy soon (I have zillion violets now, the purple/white ones. the purple ones bloom earlier and I don’t even know what my few white ones do but they were between the other 2 kinds I think). And small but not tiny irises And my bigger quince tree is in bloom (the baby has its first few flowers too), it’s very pretty now. It always was one of my favs with its more… substantial flowers. Not flimsy ones at all unlike most fruit flowers here.
And my pines does their things too. And all the other decorative plants start to make their yearly big show unless they did it already so it’s a busy time in my garden.
I messed with my sleep again and it’s a gloomy weather day. Bad combo.
Alvaro doesn’t come home until 6:30pm or something, I probably won’t eat until then or just some eggs. I am not hungry. I think I wasn’t properly hungry since days, I just feel I am not as okay as I would with food. So, need for fuel urge, it’s useful when hunger is on holiday.
I make egg+meat biscuits today. And something with the leftover pork as my biscuits contain 50g meat only. They probably will be soft but one can hope. I made various kinds, they will be baked later.
Wow! I never even saw such a thing! well I never saw brisket either but sometimes it’s available on the beef farm… Sounds good, beef belly, what could possibly be wrong with it? Or with brisket?
No idea what chaga is but I prefer real tea, only tea leaves. With some exceptions.
What. Fungus? for tea? I would try that. Probably not my cup of tea But I would try.
The nearby pond has raised water level and zillion dead fish I don’t know what happened to them The birds are fine (I saw ducks and gulls today and swans some days ago).
It’s the experience of many of us but the breast is super lean too. Of course you don’t get satiated with a too small (energy wise) OMAD meal. Eat fattier meat if you want OMAD though I think you could add at least some tiny extra meals. I do that lately. One proper meal and some eggs or other things here and there. It’s often hard to eat enough for OMAD on carnivore, some people easily do it but most of us don’t. If you get hungry, eat very soon and enough. Heavy cream coffee isn’t the ideal response to hunger - except if you are cooking your nice big meal already, I suppose though I would eat some normal food even then…
Oh that can be annoying. I eat then but it’s not ideal. Maybe more meals earlier or add some not satiating fat to your meal or choose fattier meat, whatever works to eat more? You clearly don’t eat enough during the day. Maybe eat earlier too? Just try. I probably could wait until very late every day nowadays but then I would undereat so if I feel some proper urge, I eat even if I have zero hunger and appetite. My body needs its nutrients and yours needs more than mine, mine was very well-fed all my life.
I send this already.
