LCHF benefit I am most thankful for today is…

Lack of hunger and the ability to do what I need to do without stopping to feed myself every few hours. It’s been a busy time at work (and outside of work) since I returned from the conference in Vegas. Nonstop, really.

Today was a bit brutal with a very heavy workload and my mom in surgery today at the hospital where I work. But I didn’t fall out (as we say in North Carolina) and still have energy to spare tonight. I had coffee with cream very early this morning, then breakfast/lunch around 2:30.  Helping Mom get settled took the evening and I find myself at nearly 10:00 without hunger.  No crashing.

Back in my high carb days, I was powerless about food and would have been whined that I was starving by 10:00 a.m. and no way I could have survived on one meal per day without even taking time to snack. Do I want to eat like this everyday? No. I like food and I enjoy eating…but with LCHF I am not bound to eating at times when it simply is not convenient. I can decide when and what – and that makes me feel pretty powerful. And on a day such as today, that is something to be thankful for.

  3. I know exactly what you mean. I love eating only once a day and being full for all of it.
