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.
