Hey all : )
So I’ve been following Keto for about 8 weeks now, though I’d be inclined to write off the first couple of weeks as I definitely made some errors and also that time includes me coming down with Covid and being wiped out for a good 5 days.
Waking up hungry is not something that has ever happened to me before (with the exception of when I caved to a late night snack) and it was this that actually made it super easy for me to slide naturally into IF/OMAD/2MAD.
For the last week or so though, I’ve been waking up feeling like I need to eat.
My eating window is in the latter half of the day (it’s most convenient this way to fit around around work and exercise) so I suppose that could be a possible factor? Though honestly, that’s not really a change from how I ate before.
So if it’s not that, then maybe I’m simply not taking in enough calories. Certainly, according to Cronometer, I’m ending each day with a calorie deficit. It’s calculating my daily needs as 2060 calories, and I’m not sure whether that’s going to be accurate or not. I’m 6’2", starting weight I can’t be sure of what with not using scales, but I would guess at around 110 kilos. I’m a 45 year old woman and am moderately active.
I wasn’t calculating calorie intake before starting on Keto, but I know my eating was sporadic and I don’t feel I was always hitting that amount.
Anyone have any thoughts?
