The last comments gave me thoughts and I think @never2late isn’t the type who gets upset if I write a long comment again… So I won’t abandon or cut it.
I am lazy but never if it’s about eating One of the few things I am able to do in my most tired, useless zombie state is cooking. Eating is even easier.
What I eat has exactly zero to do with the time of the day except that I almost never eat during a big part of the day. Morning? No way.
But I don’t have many options and I like variety so I tend to eat “everything” for every meal.
Number of meals: I had 3 on high-carb I think, sometimes less. Carby meals very easily brought very long term satiation.
I started with 3MAD (IF 16/8) on keto, it went down to 2MAD (19/5)… And then carnivore messed it up so I have anything now, 4-6 meals are way too frequent. But if I choose the time of my first meal and food very well, I have a pretty good control on it. But focus is tiring… And I like eating… But I am more determined than usual now.
I don’t know what they do but I am very fine after eating a bunch of carbs before bed (not nut level, more like bread or cherry jam). I still hate it for reasons but I feel good. I may not feel so good in the morning (just a tiny pressure in my belly but I expect feeling just fine. apart from the inevitable very low energy and usually mood too, I always have that in the morning) but not because of the carbs. It’s due to the night eating but only since not too long ago, I have no idea why…
If I do eat carbs, it should be as late as possible (while still not at night. night eating is bad for me)… The less time I spend (and eat) in my changed-by-carbs weird persona the better
I just wrote about my individual case but it’s what interests me much.
I used to eat a fruit breakfast before low-carb… Because it was the only thing I could consume as early as 11am. No idea WHY I ate that super early, honestly. But I have too early eating tendencies. It was about 3 today but I do my best to avoid that tomorrow. 4:30-5pm sounds the best for my first meal (or creamy coffee). Unless I need food before, of course. But that’s rare, I just get tempted at lunchtime if my satiation is already gone…
My self-control is negligible but with non-animal carbs, it’s WAY worse. A proper hedonist simply desires what is best for them but I am not nearly as perfect yet. My number one lifestyle related (among others) goal is to become a better hedonist!
It’s usually way too lean for me but I bought some surprising ones so maybe it varies a lot…?
Still, pork chuck is the bomb if you ask me Just perfectly fatty, even the leaner parts but there is fat layer too, in good cases it’s even noticeably beautifully marbled… Mmmm.
But I eat various cuts and various animals and not only meat, variety is nice.
