Yesterday I had the following

1) 250grams of egg whites -25g protein
2) 2 slices cheese- 10 grams
3) 250 grams of chicken breast- 75 grams protein
3) 4 one ounce slices of turkey- 33 grams
4) 6 oz of tuna in water- 43 grams
5) Small serving of cottage cheese- 13 grams protein

As well I had 2 large cucumbers and one green bell pepper.
I probably had around 1300 calories altogether (the chicken was cooked on a George forman grill, less fat)

When does the actual hunger start to kick in :P

How much do you weigh? Maybe you're eating too much. Or maybe you just need to give it a few more days like this :)

I weigh 192 at 18% bf and should be consuming at least around 185 grams of protein a day.

I'm not very hungry at all on low carbs. On UD2 I'm more hungry during the carb load than any other day. If anything, I miss the fat.

I can normally go 4-5 days before I want to chew my arm off.

The ketones that PSMF produces are appetite inhibitors. But that won't hold you over forever. They also make your breath smell like nail polish remover. My Dad's was RANK.

Im hungry, but im not starving.

BTW, in a single day is it ok if i consume around 10 grams of carbs and some extra fat from the foods I eat? Its hard to get exactly 180 grams of protein without anything else.

When I did PSMF, my appetite went way down. Pretty iften, I'd just have to eat ebcause it was meal time.

Thats exactly how it is now.

BTW I was at 192 and now before bed im at 186 (meaning im going to be even less in the morning)
Its only been 4-5 days and ive seen a droppage of weight but I havent seen any difference in my appearance. How much longer am I going to have to wait to see a difference?

Based on what you said you had to eat I would guess that your caloric estimate is a but low. I put that stuff into fitday and it came up to over 1500. Obviously it's not an exact science but that may be a small part of why your not feeling as hungrey as you expected to?

Are you drinking alot of water? That can help you to feel less hungry as well.

The lack of carbs is probably trimming down some water weight. Give it a few more days before some visible improvement can be seen. Probably 8-10 days? Thats what it was for me on my ketogenic.
Best of luck.

I did PSMF and didn't get all that hungry either. I felt like my metabolism was at a crawl the whole day if I didn't spread my calories out over about 8-10 meals, though. Make sure that you're not getting more than 30-40g of protein per meal.

Also, make sure to take fish oil.


And yeah, I feel absolutely none of the pain for people that are overweight and can't lose fat. I could seriously fast for a week.

I didn't get hungry doing the first few weeks of PSMF.

I just had some lean burgers from the george forman grill. :D

My caloric intake is very low yet im not seeing results yet, Im hoping that the pictures will speak for themselves after the two weeks are done.

And why am I not allowed to do a slow cut after my PSMF diet?

Sure you can use PSMF to jumpstart a slow cut.
