I'm just not hungry....

I know that's ketosis talking. But nothing is appealing right now. I know I need to eat before it gets too late in the evening. But I'm not hungry.

I know exactly where you are coming from! Sometimes it is so hard that I have to force myself to eat because there are days I'd be perfectly happy to just eat ONE meal!!!

LOL, whenever have you heard *that* out of someone who is dieting?

When that happens with me, I just have a little cheese, or a few nuts (because I'm out of Induction and can do that), or even make myself a cup of decaf coffee with a couple of tablespoonsful of heavy cream. Better yet, Gingerbread Tea (Celestial Seasonings) with stevia and topped with a little whipped cream. Feels like eating dessert, and just enough fat so that I don't wake up hungry in the middle of the night.

Question - can you do that and still lose weight? I mean - everywhere I've ever read I've been told if you eat just one meal a day, your body goes into starvation mode and won't "give up" the fat. Does that work on low-carb or can you get by eating 1 or 2 meals a day and still lose?

Totally normal. Lots of ways of doing it. When doing low-carb I can go up to 23 hours without being hungry. It's very freeing to realize I don't have to force myself to eat.

If you are eating enough good quality fats and protein in one or two meals a day, you will be fine. Feed your body when its hungry and there's no way you'll starve!

If you're not hungry, don't eat.

Not really into eating when not hungry anymore. I've been skipping meals these past 3 weeks. Its not intentional, but I simply listen to my body when it is hungry and when it is not.

Frankly, that's exactly what I've utilized during my steady decline periods. Essentially, my gluconeogenesis pathway is so well established, I'm able to consume a meal late afternoon or early evening and that is sufficient keep me running 20 plus hours or so.

Take a look at what's really happening when you become a efficient "fat burning" machine, it enables you to function on 1 meal per day. I DO ride my bike most days for hours on end with NO food, just liquids to keep hydrated:

PaNu - P?Nu Blog - There are no essential carbohydrates, even forathletes

And if you find this intriguing, I'd SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND listening to the following 1 hr. interview with Dr. Harris describing how he arrived at his beliefs and what he advocates. His 12 step program touches on so much pertinent information for achieving healthy living with a major benefit of losing wt......

How and why you arrive at your goals is what it's all about. And I hope it's for a healthier mind and body in the end!!!!
