Wednesday
B milk, 1/2 & 1/2 which I accidentally bought instead of 2%, omelet w cheese & picante sauce, chicken sausage.
L turkey chile rolled up in lettuce leaves, cheese, small apple
S small apple, blue cheese/broccoli
D salad, chicken, kidney beans, home made blue cheese dressing
S yogurt/strawberry smoothie

I might be starting to get a grip on the higher fat WOE. More fat than I was eating is good, but I have an upper limit, above which it's just too much & I feel sluggish.
There may never be a day when I can keep nuts in the home without scarfing them.

For now, the fats I am inviting back into my life are cheese & 2% dairy, whole eggs, other meats besides chicken breast, small amounts of avocado, coconut milk (culinary), oils like evoo, avoo.

Returning carbs are in the fruit family, apples, berries, oranges once in season, also beans, maybe corn, winter squash. For the foreseeable future, I am avoiding refined sugar, all flour, grains. Thinking about eliminating nightshades, for now just reducing them.

In the last 10 or so days of this experiment, i have noticed an evening of my mood, and better sleep quality. I have not yet imposed any limits on intake other than to avoid feeling uncomfortably full. It could be that I am in a better mood because I feel less deprived. Or it could be that my brain chemistry does better with carbs. i have read that serotonin is synthesized in the gut, from carbs

Magistra I really enjoyed reading your post about clothing--wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing your info, too about your plan along with recipes. Btw wondering if you have a light filter on your computer for evening into bedtime. I recently downloaded one. I don't know if it's my diet or this thing, or both, but I have been getting very good quality sleep lately. I'm tempted to go back to very low carb and test out whether it's solely due to the screen, but not going to mess with success!

If anyone is interested, here is the website where I downloaded the light filter:

Hi Sundove! I hope you are doing well! Glad you liked my post! I do have a light filter on my computer. I have a mac and it's built in. But what helps me the most is just turning all my screens off at 9pm. That's the hour I have chosen for myself. Although I occasionally go a little later than that. But turning off my screens does help me get better sleep.

When I first started this diet, it was a little hard for me to get used to waking up in the night with a clear head. I had been waking up sluggish and with foggy brain for so many years I didn't know one could wake up and feel alert like this. I got used to it though and now if I wake up I am able to go right back to sleep.

I've been all over the place with food lately. Mostly it's been stress eating, but that took on a life of its own so that I was eating whatever, whenever I felt like it. All in all I feel pretty good but would feel better if I were a little smaller. It's tiring to carry the extra weight. I miss the structure of a diet, but am tired of dieting. For now I'll see if checking in will help.

B coffee and 1/2 & 1/2
L salad with avocado, chicken, evoo
D tofo and sauteed vegs, sesame oil, tamari sauce
S locally grown Fuji apple, protein hot chocolate, turkey with mayo.

Hi Sundove! Boy, stress eating is hard! I have a super hard time with that too. Good luck getting back on track. You can do it!
