@Karen18: Oh I get it now. Still unusual to me as we only have “proper”, day-off holidays and only a very few of them can possibly have fireworks. Only 20th of August and 31th of December (okay, that one is a workday - but many people don’t work between Chistmas and New Year because their workplace is closed down then - just like 24th of December that is totally the only Christmas Day for me… but 25th and 26th are the off days. but the firework happens late and the next day is a holiday).
And I never heard about Bonfire day and the kids with their Guy… It’s good to learn things.
@Fangs: I know it may happen and I actually wondered about it but I seriously doubt my body needs this much food now. That would be more consistent and I would feel it’s the case I suppose. I am sensitive to timing or more like the size of meals and not satiating items can balloon my energy intake needlessly, I experienced that many times before. if I choose the right items and don’t get hungry unusually early or get satiated way too quickly, I typically am fine without eating a ton. I don’t think I ever possibly need this much food unless of course if I am more active or I ate low in the previous days. I even understand my body wants much meat after low-meat times. But now? I surely messed up something as it’s not right. And I definitely HATE eating “all day”, being hungry a lot, not feeling quite right, convenience ruined… It is definitely wrong and I will figure it out and solve it. I don’t like wasteful eating, I did it too much in my life But I definitely not worry that I eat too much protein or fat and it does bad things to me. Apart from the annoyance, inconvenience and keeping me from losing fat I eat okay food and my body stops me if I go too far but it’s still not ideal yet.
Today was better, no wonder, I don’t have 2 quite high-cal days in row on carnivore. I think I am done with the day now. 2 hour eating window, 2 meals I was satiated for quite long and could eat a decent sized meal. My 2nd meal was smaller, I didn’t really want food but I knew I needed more and it was dinnertime (and I was hungry 10 minutes before, that mattered too. I went downstairs and it disappeared. but I didn’t care at that point). I just ate some leftovers I didn’t mind. And made another cheese sauce with sour cream (oh I have read about sour cream. the article said the Brits has “sour cream” at 12-16% fat only while ours must be over 16. there is a low-fat stuff with 12% but it apparently can’t be called “tejföl”, our word for sour cream. and indeed, it’s soured cream, from the top of the solidified milk, it was a very popular dish before, the whole solidified milk, I mean, whatever is the term for it. we use the word sleep in it :)). Using the aged cheese, partially. Nope, I strongly prefer the young Gouda. Maybe Alfredo sauce has enough cream to balance out the strong flavor but my creation with less and sour cream, that had a too strong flavor.
I might be unusually sensitive to cheeses with a strong flavor, I do like them but I can’t eat them normally, only morsels. I have this with blue cheese too.
I ate some bacon end pieces today. I won’t buy it anymore, it’s horribly salty, no matter what I eat it with, it’s suffering. One package of sliced bacon for crunch per year should be enough for me…
I ate some liver but got bored of it in no time but it’s only 500g, super easy to eat in a few days even a little at a time and Alvaro will help. Then I will wait for some weeks…
Tomorrow is turkey day so it will be delicious. Hopefully I won’t miss my proper pork, I don’t have any now. So I will experiment to figure out if turkey as my main meat can possibly work or not… I have processed pork and liver so it won’t be just turkey but I like to pair it with some substantial meat, pork or ruminant meat, I know that works.
But we will see.
I don’t know which pork slab I will choose next… But probably the one I had the longest time ago. Pork shoulder! With some leaner stuff with it. I will be careful. Or I will be wild and curious. Or I will do OMAD so I won’t eat 1000g of it again… I should learn to handle pork shoulder as I surely won’t resist the super sales in the future either… I don’t remember if my shoulder overeating days had low-meat times before them, quite possibly… But it’s still a tricky item as I can’t eat that much of any other meat, not even my favs. They are more satiating - and how crazy is that a fatty pork satiates me less per weight than a leaner one?
But maybe I changed. Maybe my very meaty current days make a change…
Too many factors change all the time
I will track tomorrow. Who knows if I will eat later? But I will do my best not to.
