Hey guys, I gave myself some time to adapt to carnivore but I got a problem and hope you guys can perhaps help me out.
From what I read and listened to I understood that less appetite is a big plus of this diet, at first I was super exited. Waking up in the morning, going to work, not eating anything and not feeling hungry…so awesome. But I quickly realized I am full very quickly. Adding more fat to my meals like a big chunk of butter does not help either, I just feel full quicker that way.
This is getting worse instead of better. For example saturday I ate my last meal at 7p.m., got up the next day, went to the gym, walked the dog and still wasn’t hungry at 3 p.m.
I ate 2 sausages and a bit of beef but was SO full after that, later I ate 2 scrambled eggs with 4 slices of bacon. Full again. Just thinking about fat, meat, or eggs makes me uncomfortable.
I am on carnivore for 2 weeks now, but now I get energy drops. Which is no surprise because I perhaps eat 1200-2000 calories a day. For a dude that is like 1,92m/6’3ft tall that is not enough I guess. Normally I wouldn’t be so worried, but when I do not feel hunger the thought of all those fatty food disgusts me and makes me feel a bit sick. Even though if you’d ask anyone what meal I’d prefer to eat for the rest of my life they would say “steak. medium rare”.
