So yesterday went very well, except I discovered the broth had 2x more calories than I thought, and I ate something unplanned before calculating it's calories. About an hour after my strawberries, I had a third cup of broth (10 calories instead of the 5 I thought it was) and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I would normally pop a stick of gum in my mouth, but since I'm quitting artificial sweetners, I tried to think of something else. I passed the pantry, saw the macadamia nuts and counted out 3, thinking it was such a small amount... Today I weighed out 3 nuts and they weighed 7 grams for 50 calories! At least they weren't all carb calories.
Total calories for day 1 fasting: 579 (38g fat, 33g prot, 38g carb (-12g fiber = 26 net carbs)
Anyhow, I woke up feeling like I could continue the fasting condition till dinner. So I had 2 cups coffee w 3 Tbs HWC (150 cal), and a whey protein shake (150 cal: 25g prot/4g fat/5g carb). Then for the rest of the day I only had plain water. At 12:30 I noticed...

It started yesterday and after another bad night I am very low again. I just have an overwhelming feeling I want to move back to the UK. OH is not listening to me, he is always of the opinion that if he ignores it all will be well. I have been battling with life here for some time and he just doesn't get it! He is happy here! We have friends staying a couple of days so I have to hold it in and put on a show. I keep finding ways we could get back but OH just dismisses all my ideas.
Not sure where to go from here!

Wmr309's comments have certainly given me food for thought. No pun intended.

Anyway, yesterday I ate my std brekkie and lunch, and had lots of veg with a small amount of bolognaise sauce for dinner, plus the orange. No cravings or wish to eat in the evening, but I made a conscious decision to have some chocolate, for emotional reasons (!) but I had no problems with that decision, and only had a relatively small amount (for me!).

Felt good this morning, have fasted so far, as per normal Wed fast, because it fits my routine not to eat til mid pm. I am deciding whether I will have a late lunch, or wait til dinner time. I will perhaps let hunger dictate??

I am actually doing 4:3 as I have a family holiday in Italy to get into shape for ,also my 50th !!!!!! birthday :dazed: . Swore I'd be fit and slim by then ,struggling to get fit as am suffering from my second frozen shoulder in two years. :cry: so walking just about all I can do (and that's quite painful sometimes). Lost just under a stone since Christmas, about 3 weeks of which I have done intermittent fasting.Find it strangely addictive and it seems to work :victory: (up to now).I am even doing a 5:2 this week and I'm on holiday ,have never followed a diet on holiday before!! :bugeyes:
