Day 4. Food is good. Today made a few change-ups in what I’m eating. I had a huge salad with lots of greens, broccoli, cauliflower, and two nice salmon fillets and ate on this throughout the day. Quite good when you throw in a handful of olives and a few walnuts. Also still had my concoction from Day 2 and 3 as one of my meals.
I think I may have over done the nuts a little. I found myself snacking on an almond/cashew/pistachio mix a little too much and consequently I felt ‘full’ most of the day.
The one psychological/physiological thing that happened was going all day craving a snickers bar. Not just any sweet. I was just jonesing for a frozen snickers bar. Thankfully I got through it all right without indulging.
All in all, I think everything is going pretty well. Haven’t weighed yet (I’ll do that for Day 7) but I can tell I’m done some. Except for Day 4 I’m actually getting to enjoy the slight hungry feeling all the time. It’s got a sense of urgency to it that keeps me motivated.
See you all tomorrow.
