So I managed to make it three days before I was so hungry that I completely went AWOL. This is where I get really angry with myself. Why does food have such control over me? I mean, I was eating plenty but I was just so hungry!
Today is Sunday. Friday, I made a batch of homemade buttermilk biscuits and some sausage gravy. I ate until I was so full that I had to just vegetate for a while because of the sudden carb overload.
Here’s something else I learned that day. That carb overload really makes my heart work hard. I don’t know if it was because I had gone for 3 days with very few carbs or if it was because the high carb foods make blood sugars rise hard but I noticed it for several hours.
Here’s another thing, I felt FULL finally. It’s hard to explain. When I eat low carb, even for one meal, I can get full, but then not long after, I’m not feeling the effects and already begin thinking about what I want to eat. But if I eat something with higher carbs, I get that feeling of fullness that is satisfying. I think that has a LOT to do with why people have a hard time sticking to low carb plans.
Plus, the fact that almost everything we have when we eat out is always carb laden. No wonder we can’t lose weight!
There has GOT to be something that can switch off this craziness. I’m getting a little desperate. I really need to lose this weight but how? If I’m still hungry after eating, its going to be incredibly hard to not eat again.
So Friday and Saturday, I ate whatever I wanted and the results are obvious.
Oh, I also tried another coffee enema yesterday. I still need to tweak that because I can’t hold for the 15 minutes required to feel the effects.
In the meantime, I’m trying some new things and will be researching other herbs and nutrients that will maybe help with appetite. I began to learn about Kratom and had a few samples sent to me this week. Maybe that will hold the key to suppressing the appetite. I don’t know.
I’ve got to keep trying. I want to feel better about my body and I know even if I can just get below 200 that will make a world of difference.
I’ll be glad also when this cold winter is over. Getting outside helps me move more.
