Yesterday was a fast day, and my cals totaled to 514 by the end of the day. It is getting easier to do on fast days. I know that I am not starving and that I will be eating regular the following two to three days. I don't deny myself anything to eat either. Sunday I had a tiramisu for dessert. Totally guilt free and enjoyed myself for the first time in a long time with dessert! In the past, i would have ruined the dessert by feeling guilty. I also find myself eating "normal" on normal days. I don't eat past full. I take my time with the food. I do not rush or shove the food down quickly. We went to Olive Garden for dinner. I ordered the eggplan parmesan with pasta, salad and bread sticks. I had one circle of the eggplant and brought the rest home. I wanted room for dessert.
Once I reach my goal weight, I will fast once per week for the health benefits....
Feeling fine overall and the hunger during fasting has diminished with each fasting day completed. But (Sorry to be graphic) I have not been to the toilet for FIVE DAYS NOW!!! I"m usually very regular ie at least daily. Im eating tonnes of veg & fruit along with copious amounts of water so My food consumption overall is reduced, even on feast days as Im tending to need less & what I am eating is healthy.
Is anyone else suffering the same & what remedies are you employing?
More time to think of my interim goal award, probably the Kindle of the
Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living. As for getting to actual goal weight - organic raw cacao powder, MCT oil and super duper coffee beans.
