What can I say, I woke up hungry, so I ate.
Usually I would have resisted, but sometimes it’s good to break the schedule. All my meals were still whole food, paleo, and pastoral. And I don’t think I ate much more than usual. Just earlier and more often. I might go ahead and have a late night snack here in a little bit. Just to be different.
Tomorrow will probably be a shopping day, because I forgot some stuff on Monday. So maybe this is good, maybe I won’t be as triggered while shopping.
One of the two main reasons for going to the strict OMAD fasting diet was to train myself not to respond to psychological drives for additional meals.
I was one of those 9 meals a day people, who had been assured that frequent meals was the best idea for keeping the blood sugar level. I now see that as telling a man with weak legs that using a wheel chair for all his movement would fix his weakness. I didn’t need to mediate the changes in my blood sugar levels, I needed to fix the reason for those spikes and dips.
But that left me programmed to need a meal before bed, a meal upon awakening, meals and snacks throughout the day. It just seems normal to me. Even now, after knowing for 20 years that this is just a modern invention, it seems normal to me.
So here I sit, 4 1/2 hours after my OMAD meal, wanting to fix a snack. Of course, with what I have in the fridge, it would be a whole food, keto, pastoral snack, probably celery, olives, cheese, hot peppers, and maybe some leftover pork.
But it would ruin what I’m doing. So I won’t. Instead I will exorcise it here in this post. Hopefully that will be enough, along with some water.
I don’t anticipate anyone ever seeing this blog. I post things on Steemit or Gab if I want it seen.
So that gives me a little room to think. Well, 25gb of room to think.
I can do little stream of consciousness posts like this without boring anyone or being a pest. Heck, I could do two or three a day.
I started at 4:PM and just finished. I didn’t have everything I planned but I figured to be fair I should stop at an hour.
It’s 4:58 and I haven’t taken time to input my food yet. Let me go do that.
Hmm… that’s really enough calories, but too high on carbs. I’ll check for ketones later, but they say as long as you get it into one hour, some additional carbs are not really a problem. We’re about to find out.
I made 24oz of kefir and it was more than I wanted. I’ll have less tomorrow, and my kefir grains should be more active. I’ve had them in the fridge for a month or so and it takes a while to start up. I suspect my kefir is lower in carbs than the listed kefir. I want to keep cutting back on the blueberries until I can talk myself into drinking it plain.
