Hunger and food choices
 
For months, now, my breakfast has either been bulletproof coffee, or a couple fat-bombs. These get me through the morning nicely, and I'm ready to eat around 2pm or a little earlier.

Once in a while, I have to grab fast-food, and on those days, I typically go to Wild Wing Cafe for lunch, and enjoy my extra fat there.


On Thursday, though, my day was a little crazy. BK for breakfast (2 sausage-egg-cheese sandwiches served Lo-Carb style). By 11, when my daughter & I had to be at the airport, I was considering eating a TSA-agent, with a little mayo for dipping sauce!

Given time-issues and where we were, I had a choice between BK and this hot dog place. Hot dog place had pictures of WINGS! SCORE! Except... "are ALL your wings breaded?" ~woman nods head~

~sigh~ BK it was. Chicken salad, with bacon and cheese. Didn't trust the dressing.

Fairly un-satisfying, and sure enough, STARVING by dinner time! (We will not be discussing how much chicken I wound up packing away!)


Then, there's yesterday.

BP coffee -- check. Cheeseburger and small salad -- check. Dinner... a handful of almonds, not really hungry, thanks.


I've been high fat/low appetite for so long, I'd forgotten what it FEELS like to be that ravenous!

I love my high fat lifestyle :). If I don't feel satisfied after a meal, I just go and get some butter, cream cheese and liquid stevia, melt it a bit and eat that. It works every time.

I was really hungry for a day or two a couple of weeks ago, but I don't know why, I was eating my regular foods. But it was strange to feel so hungry. I'm just not used to it anymore! Ketosis is a wonderful thing!

I really get tired of people trying to force me to eat ya know. A lot of days, like today, I have NO desire to eat. Do you ever get that? And there's always some kind person that says, she's not eating because she's on a DIET !! No, I'm not eating because I'm not hungry ! LOVE those no hunger days :clap:

I'm in awe of people who can go for hours without eating after bulletproof coffee. I've tried it, but end up feeling hungry after a couple of hours. If I eat some protein with fat for my first meal of the day, then I can stay full until the afternoon.

I am still early days in my restart, but what is working for me is BPC together with some protein/fat . . . eggs or breakfast-type meat, not both. I separate the two by about an hour when I am able. This takes me until early afternoon. I am an early riser.

How much total fat do most of you BPC fans put into your morning coffee? I am still playing with a range. This being the weekend, I used a tablespoon each of butter and CO, whipped up to a very satisfying indulgence.

I tend to use about 2 TBS each of CO and HWC in my coffee. (Yes, that DOES take up a good chunk of my coffee cup!)

I'm not saying everyone must have BPC for breakfast... just saying what a difference it made, eating so much lower-fat. Would have been alarming, if I didn't know what was wrong!

And yes, I have days where I eat hardly anything. (Often, on those days, when I DO eat, it's because I want salt, not food.)

If I'm drinking BPC right before or with breakfast, I use a tablespoon of coconut oil and 1-2 tablespoons of heavy cream. I've tried the version with unsalted butter and did not care for the taste.

BPC only triggers hunger for me if I drink it on an empty stomach. If I make one in the afternoon, it doesn't have that effect.

This being a weekend I'll give myself another cup this afternoon and try with the HWC that I bought, whipped up with some CO. What fun to have so many choices.
