  • Oh my, I can so relate to how you are feeling right now! Chuck the carbs for a few days and get your body stabilised again! I feel SO much better today after eating decent food and low carb for just one day (after weeks of overeating chocolate and nuts!) I am craving veggies too - lots of meat and fat and veg is the trick

    • I feel your pain! Literally. It was a week of traveling and food debauchery for me, and I am suffering as well. I think a couple of clean, Primal days are in order.

      Sounds like we're both glad to be home!

      • Hey, I have friends in Carb Hell! Let's all get the haitch out of here! I'm definitely VLC for the next few days. Not even any fruit. I've IF'd since 5PM yesterday and my mind feels better already. How do people eat so many carbs all the time? How did I do it? Or accomplish anything at all?

        I'm going to have some sort of meat, probably sausages, and some green salad shortly. Not in a great hurry to eat as I am enjoying how I feel right now.

        • Since last week I dissed the Friday Success Story, today I will give it up for Shawn and his victory over Type 1 diabetes. I find it really, really inspiring when someone takes control the way he did, bucks CW, and has a positive outcome. It is pretty timely for me as I just spent three days with a couple of women who have "allergies" and many, many health problems yet continue to eat things they are "allergic" to.

          • Wow, just had a fantabulous meal. Nothing fancy - Thai coconut soup with fish and mushrooms, served over leafy salad greens. Liberally garnished with lime, cashews, and cilantro. Swoon! Ridiculously easy to make.

            Feel so much better tonight!

            • Well. BW Cat is sick. He was hiding in the closet for awhile, and he won't eat. For him not to eat is epic. Oh dear. Trying not to worry.

                • Uh oh, sick kitty is never fun Hope whatever it is clears up really soon - hopefully it is just a fur ball or something simple like that. And yes, I am SO out of the carb hell! Not a perfect day by any means, but much, much better. Your food always sounds so interesting! I should come and take some lessons

                  • Hope your kitty clears up soon. Yes, I've been getting worse and worse about which carbs I ingest, and I intend to fix that, starting tomorrow.

                    • Thanks all, BW Cat seems better, still not up to snuff, but he ate a little and I saw him drinking. I hope it's something easy and disgusting, like a hairball.

                      I am feeling much, much better. Basically I have realized that I can no longer eat refined carbs in any quantity. I don't know what goes on biochemically, some kind of weird insulin production or something, but I turn into a depressed zombie. No thank you. Pass the meat and veg.

                      • Well. BW Cat has decided not to eat again. I poked and prodded him all over, particularly his belly, and he doesn't seem to have any pain or lumps or bumps. He is very happy to be brushed and coddled, but isn't very energetic - he is normally VERY energetic, at least part of the time. And the not eating. Oh dear.

                        I, on the other hand, am eating sausage and cabbage and onions with many, many spices thrown in, and some butter too. Really good. I went to the pool this morning and worked out fasted, which oddly enough I really love. If you would have told me several months ago that I would purposely work out after not eating for 14 hours I would have thought you were crazy. I even did some sprinting in the pool, which I would have also thought was not possible for me. I also did a lot of floating and drifting around, daydreaming.

                        Going to the Met Opera HD simulcast this afternoon, should be terrific. Of course I am worried about BW Cat though.

                        • BW Cat agreed to eat some calming supplements so I am relieved.

                          I ate a large amount of sausage and cabbage and followed that with blackberries in coconut cream. Went a little overboard! A bit too full right now! I ate freely because I won't be eating again until at least 5 PM. This will definitely be a 2-meal day. I'm at 800 calories, macros all good. Pretty low carb.

                          It was all really good though.

                          • Mmm, that sounds delicious - though I will skip the coconut cream and do thick dairy cream instead! Glad BW cat ate something - hopefully he perks up by this evening... Enjoy your day!

                            • I've been eating the pulled pork I made and the kraut I made last week. I'm feeling way better! I've always had an iron stomach so I was surprised when a couple of non-Primal days made me feel so yucky!

                              I'm glad we're all (including BW Cat) feeling better!

                              • The opera was fantastic, as I expect from the Met. And I'm really looking forward to The Tempest in two weeks.

                                I've made the unfortunate discovery of a natural hard cider, no additives at all, just apple juice, that has only 12 carbs per 12 oz. I say unfortunate because I've always avoided hard cider because of the carbs. Twelve is nothing, though, easy to work in. It is delicious. I'm enjoying a glass right now with some blue cheese and walnuts. Heaven.

                                BW Cat seems to be better. He ate some dinner and is acting normally. I hope that's over. I've looked around for a hairball but I haven't found anything. Which is both good and bad!
