Hunger on Day 7

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I'm hungry. But it's okay.

April 25, 2013

Today starts day #7 of Ideal Protein. The first few days were HARD and II was MISERABLE.

Day 4 - 6 were pretty good, I wasn't hungry and I had more energy. This morning, however.... woke up hungry. I'm about to have a shake and I know that will satisfy me.

I'm actually proud of myself for having stuck with this. This is not an easy diet, for me. I'm not a salad eater and the veggies I like are not on the list of those I can eat. This makes it difficult. I like asparagus, and spinach, but I've had a lot of asparagus this week, ha. I suppose I ate too much, because on day 5 and 6, I did not get in all of my food. I just wasn't hungry, or maybe I was tired of the asparagus. So I need a plan for when/if that happens again. Ideas?

Love & peace,

    Stick with it Lynn! It will get easier! There will come a point when your body gets the hang of ketosis and you won't be as hungry and you will have lots of energy. If you are really hungry, have an extra IP packet. I'm not a vegetable fan either, but I started to enjoy roasted brussel sprouts. I also really enjoy celery sticks and a little bit of peanut butter (not on protocol but I can still lose weight doing it).

Good luck!

    Get away from the diet mentality. Eat foods you like in amounts that do not bust your goal.

  How about a stir fry?

    Try a juice or maybe some smoothy that will help you get in your veggies
