Day 2, I wish it was 14!

I was managing well until later tonight. I am huuuuuuuuuungry. And I did exhuast my food supply for the day. I am planning to just bear with it. I dont want to get an additional food but if I really yhave to I will. It will be something very reasonable, like another protion of meat or hot dog. Better than feeling guilty and blow it all together. So far it has definitely been a challenge, no questions about it. But so far, so good! I will keep my fingers crossed and my devils at bay. I am still a big boy and I do work out with weights so it might be ok for me to add a little bit extra food in case of emergency hunger. And I dont think that is cheating. I asked dr Eades and he said it would be totally fine. But aghain I want to stick to the plan and just ride this thing through for two weeks. After all I had been planning to do it for almost a year now. And no success after so many tries. But for some reason I do believe I can do it now. Sadekat, I am still holding on. Its getting tighter but I am doing it. It reminds me of that Biggest Looser comptetition where they make stand on one leg and see who can do it the longest.So far so good!

12 pm- Strawberry Power up shake

4 pm- Blueberry Power up shake

10 pm- 3 eggs with 2 turkey hot dogs, 1 Tbsp avocado and 1/2 cup of sauteed mixed vegetable

12 am- Blueberry Power up shake

Ton of water! I am huuuuuuuuuuuungry!

You can do it. I was very hungry this afternoon, and now about 6 hours later I just had my last protein shake of the day. I didn't like the blackberry shake, so it was hard to get down. I am drinking lots of water too. How is your water intake?

Are you permitted to add fiber to your shakes? Maybe some shredded coconut (full fat or reduced fat) or flax seeds may do the trick. It could help you to stay satiated for longer. Just a thought.

Congrats to you both for sticking with the program!

Harry, it is perfectly fine to add on coconut or flax. I doubt it would make such a big diffrence but I will try it. I think its mostly a mental thing. But so far I have been a good boy. Sadekat, I drink at least 12 cups of water every day now that I am on shakes.

Harry is right.. adding shredded coconut leaves me full for a long longer....

Keep up the awesome work!

Vadim said...

Wow, I will certainly try it then. I dont have shredded coconut, but I do have coconut milk. Thanks Angie!

in my personal experience, not having enough fat in a meal is what makes me hungry...perhaps you could add a tablespoon of some kind of fat to your shakes (or is there some in there already???)
