Maybe this should go into the Health forum.. If so please move it.. If not..

Anyways:

I have been doing the diet for about 1.5weeks now. I've already lost nearly 6 lbs and dropped about 1 full % of body fat (consistently 1% less than when I started). Lately I have been feeling VERY hungry. So hungry, my stomach churns and I feel a little uneasy.

Today I just couldn't help it.. I had everything written down like it was picture perfect, but I just couldn't be satisfied eating 5 small meals, so I ended up f'in up and eating a few cookies and a bowl of ceral to hold me over until supper.

Seriously, how can I avoid feeling so hungry so I don't have to cheat and get all this bad food? Any ideas for healthy hunger filler snacks?

Salted Brocolli. More eggs.

Keep in mind, the longer you go with less food, the easier it gets.

I've been doing this for a few months now, and i have to force myself to eat these days.

I don't know, but I know I went from several hundred carbs a day to under 100 (around 70g is average)

Huge bowl of veggies.

You'll eat until you're so full you feel sick and you'll be lucky to get a couple hundred kcal from it.

It's also full of nutrients and fibre too :D

i personally am not a fan of veggies... but if u are, eat lots of them and u won't get as hungry... but more to the point of my first question - why not drop it slower, and let ur body adjust to eating less, and then drop it a little bit more once u adjust... most of the time when people fail at dieting is because they went too hard out of the gates and then a little while in they start cheating and then give up. take it slow, it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Edit: jello is good too, very low in cals and if u eat enough of it, it will fill u up! it tastes nice too!

Salted Brocolli.


I know fruits and vegetables are always good regardless of cutting or bulking... but why salted?

Salt's good on a cut: http://chemo.net/sodium-.htm

Are your fats high enough? I can't stand living if my fats get too low.

If you've lost 6 pounds and only 1% bodyfat that probably isn't a good sign. I'm cutting right now and I have lost 8.5 pounds and lost approximately 5% bodyfat.

What should I do?

could be just water and glycogen stores depleting as ur carbs have dropped significantly, i'm sure a diet guru can clear that up as i'm not sure if i'm correct.

Yeah, if he's only be dieting for 10 days or so, a 6lb weight loss is normal if he has dropped carbs.

Carbs make you hold water/glycogen in your muscles, when you drop carbs, you drop the water/glycogen.

Keep on trucking, and if you're worried about your weight loss being bad, create a new thread or send me a PM.

that is a problem in itself, figure out how many cals you are taking in not just carbs, then ask some experts here to evaluate your diet
