I'd already eaten all of my calories for the day by the time it hit early evening so I didn't feel like eating because I wasn't hungry. Didn't bother with dinner. Come a couple of hours later and I of course had a rumbly tummy. Instead of heading the siren call of the massive bowl of Easter eggs on our counter, I steamed some broccolini and dressed it with a light dusting of shaved Parmesan cheese.
Potential caloric intake? I'm guessing at 6-8 small solid eggs, approximately 200-250 cals. Then the munching frenzy would have started and I'm sure I could have gotten through an extra 200 cals out of nowhere. Instead I had about 80 calories worth of good nutrition that actually left me feeling satisfied. It's silly to crow about such a small thing, but when you get it right it's nice to yell from the roof tops!
It doesn't matter how many times you fall so long as you keep getting back up.
