Okay...so here's the scoop.
On Day 6 of an almost Phase 1. I've avoided every carb and sip of alcohol but have had some fruit - I enjoy green smoothies and fruit is easy to take to work for lunch.
I had cottage cheese with strawberries and blueberries for breakfast today, then 3 lettuce wraps with low fat turkey and mozarella cheese with homemade soup made with celery, spinach, onion, garlic, chick peas and some spices. Immediately after I felt still hungry so had a few almonds.
I've worked out every day this week so think that maybe I'm not putting enough protein in my diet to keep my energy up but I also haven't had headaches and on Friday I hadn't eaten much but I also wasn't hungry...forced myself to eat dinner.
I do remember the 1st time I did SB five years ago that on Day 13 and 14 of phase 1 I felt the same - ravenous! Someone told me to eat more beans to get the protein. I did and felt better.
I'm about to go grocery shopping and don't want to buy everything on the shelf because I'm so hungry. Guess I will drink lots of water before heading out.
Just thought I'd ask if anyone else has felt the hunger pains and any suggestions as to how they got through this before stuffing down a loaf of bread or plate of pasta down?
