MORNING! I've been lying in bed for like, an hour-and-a-half. I'm trying to gather the willpower to pull myself out of it. I PROMISE TO AFTER THIS POST!

I'm eating the exact same thing I did yesterday, which is a giant plate of pulled pork, smoked for 11 loving hours.

I wish I could be more exciting, but...pork shoulder.

Oh, and I guess I'll make a pot of coffee to try and tempt my husband out of bed in an hour or so.

Now I'm off to be productive! ...maybe!

Fall back time! Make sure you set your clocks back one hour if you haven't already!
Pu-erh @ noon.
Dinner@3pm:
*1/4 apple
*6 Tbsp pine nuts
*1 hard boiled egg
*1 cup cubed beef fried in oil with carrots/onions
*1 Tbsp sour cream
*Pu-erh tea

Last night I cheated, actually to put it more accurately I carb-binged. So reporting for last night:
8pm- (horrible cravings decided it was safe to have one since I have been doing so well lately) 1 regular size snickers bar 31 carbs
9pm- (because I already cheated so I said oh well might as well) 1 hard boiled egg
11pm- (because I thought I needed more fiber and had already cheated) 1 persimmon 8.8 carbs
11pm- (because I wanted something chewy and had already cheated) 2 marshmallow rice krispies squares 17 carb each
11pm- (because I thought I might as well have some chocolate because I had already cheated) 4 chocolate covered macadamia nut candies 24 total carb

It scares me how easily I can get derailed, and how carbs control me so much. I was not even physically hungry that evening, just possessed by the carb demon didn't lose or gain a single ounce morning after

Remember that this is a physiological thing and it takes some of us (if not all) pretty big effort to get past it but if you are able to (and I know you are), you will get to a point that this stuff doesn't even look or sound good. While getting back on plan, I might suggest that you leave out any fruit or root veggies and be very careful with onions. As a fellow n.k'er, I would not have apples or carrots even now and I have been ketogenic for a very long time. It is a learning process.

I cannot believe I didn't think to look at my food diary to see what might have triggered the craving in the first place, tysvm for pointing me in the right direction! Here's what I did differently the day the craving hit (had no cravings the prior 8 or 9 days): drank absolutely no tea, had a bottle of lemon water, ate carrots for the first time since I started lc.

You are correct that snickers bar was definitely a physiological problem I was battling it all afternoon and finally gave in in the evening. However, my main problem seems to be that I satisfied my craving completely halfway through the snickers, paused, thought about leaving the rest but then said "I might as well " finish it. All the other cheats after the snickers resulted because of my "I might as well since I've already failed" attitude. Like Artic_mama says, if you get a flat does not mean you should slash the other 3 tires. The good news is I did well both yesterday and today and I seem to be back on track.

I add small amounts of fruit to my diet because I am on protein power, we count net carbs and fruits are considered okay and we are encouraged to get lots of fiber into our diets. I took your advice and just had eggs today. Thank you for taking the time to help a newbie out
