This weekend I just lost it with my weight loss. I won't go into details but I just feel like I have to try one way or another. I think something snapped in my brain because I just decided it was OK to feel hungry all of the time. My hope is that after a month of feeling hungry all of the time perhaps my stomach will shrink and then hopefully it will get easier.
Here is what I am doing:
protein bar (Jay Robb Brand-about 200 calories)
20 minutes before lunch I take a fiber supplement called Glucomannan-it fills you up
protein bar (Jay Robb again)
Small vegetable salad (maybe about 100 calories)
same options as the morning
Again, if I am overly hungry I take Glucomannan 20 minutes before I eat. The meal consists of whatever I make for my husband. Usually, a protein source, veggies, potatoes, and maybe some dark chocolate or berries for dessert.
I try not to eat after dinner. In order to get past my hunger I drink a lot of green and ginger tea. If the hunger gets bad I allow myself to have protein. Protein doesn't raise your blood sugar but does raise metabolism at night. Basically, all I am trying to do is eat as little as I can while keeping my blood sugar stable. Not sure how long this will last since it is quite strict but so far I have been doing well with it. Wish me luck.
