Since I'm on my second week today, I can now add either one cup of vegetables and one cup of fruit (off of a specific list, of course) or two of one or the other, plus my 500 protein calories. I have to make sure not to exceed 20 grams of carbs, but that is the only restriction.
So here I sit, at 7:20 pm, after having had an EAS protein shake for breakfast and 3.5 ounces of chicken breast for lunch, not hungry. I have planned out dinner. I can have 2 ounces of spinach (which is ridiculous in size, so I think I cut it to about .5 ounces) and 3 ounces of cucumber. Topping off dinner is 5.5 ounces of salmon. It smells great, looks great, but I'm not hungry. This is an odd sensation. I thought for sure I would be insane for salad by now once I could have it, but I'm not. I don't seem to care. Weird. I can also not seem to get over the 500 calorie per day mark now that I am used to it. You would think I would have the opposite problem!
If I can ever get home early enough to begin exercising, I am hoping that will change the whole equation. Until then, I still feel great, just seem to want to eat less. Not a bad thing!
