I can't believe this. I've done low carb diets before and I have NEVER been this hungry before. This is what I've eaten today so far:
coffee with heavy cream
American cheese with 1 cup of egg whites (only 1 carb in the cheese)
2 sausage patties
chicken with mayonaise
2 chicken breasts with blue cheese dressing
peanuts (I was desperate-figured I'd try some nuts to see if that might help me stop eating)
I haven't had any vegetables today or anything carby except for the peanuts which I just had some right now.
I've had PLENTY to drink today so it's not a lack of water. I've had 2 cups of coffee, green tea, three 24 oz tumblers of water.
I'm not craving anything carby- believe it or not I'm craving protein! All I want to do is eat chicken! A friend of mine asked me if I've been working out lately- I have the last 3 days. She said maybe my body is needing more protein to help repair my muscles. Could this be the reason why I'm hungry all day? When I woke up this morning I wasn't hungry so I didn't eat until around 11:30 AM.
Has this happened to anyone else? What did you do? Eat more protein until you were satisfied? This is driving me crazy. Even though I started the Jorge Cruise low carb diet I haven't gone over 40 carbs a day and that was my highest day which was yesterday.
