December 11/12, 2008 - Thursday & Friday

Okay, can someone tell me why I'm losing my appetite? I eat about 1,000 or less calories a day.

You know the drill. Same menu as the day before. The thing is I'm not depriving myself. I sleep well and I feel good. Yet, the need to eat is diminishing and it is so startling! I'm not starving myself and my binge-eating is under control. Is this what ketosis feels like? Are the carbs finally out of my body? The DANDR book suggests I am. Though I'd have to pee-pee on a little stick to make sure. LOL....not! Its like the scale vs. how the clothes feel. I'll pick the clothes every time!

Whatever the case may be, I have successfully stayed away from sweet for 12 days. Now tomorrow is a special event involving lighting of a tree, and loads of treats. Ah, another obstacle to my challenge! Cool! I see a cup of black coffee in my future.

Menu for Thursday:

Breakfast: 2 eggs, veggie patty, mayo, mustard, spices - 300 calories (6:45am)

Lunch: Same as breakfast (1pm) - 300 calories

Dinner: 2 hb eggs, tuna with mayo, 1 turkey cube - 350 calories (6:05pm)

950 calories


Breakfast and Lunch: Same (600 calories Total)
Dinner: 1 hb egg, tuna with mayo, 1 turkey cube, 2oz. of red kidney beans - (325 calories)

925 calories

See what I mean? Losing appetite. My transition day is tomorrow and I'll add a small green salad somewhere.

Okay, going to bed now. I used up my energy at the gym doing elliptical and abs. I have to work tomorrow and I want to be bright eyed and bush tailed!

Hi Lora,

Hmmm I can't answer the decreased appetite question. I know my body goes up and down in appetite over the course of a few months. Maybe this decreased appetite isn't here to stay and it'll change around depending on your mood, the weather, the colour of your clothes lol.

Body's just do their own thing. As long as you listen to it, I don't think it should be a problem.

Keep up the good work. :)

Wow, I cant beleive you are not hungry on that many calories and you still have energy, amazing. Are you sure you have energy eating that little, or should we contest you on that by asking your bf? Whatever the case, if your body doesnt mind and feeling good, than you are doing fine!

Howdy, Lora.

This may just be a crazy suggestion. But, here goes ...

Maybe your body is bored by the repetitiveness of your diet?

If your caloric intake is a concern, perhaps you could try adding some new/different foods to see if it sparks increased appetite?

Just a thought.

You know, that's a good suggestion Harry made. What do you think?
