Quoted from debiI always eat 5-6 small meals and try to never get hungry because it is too hard for me to recover. I am very active, but this may work for you as well....it really takes some time to figure all of this out. I have to look at what my day will be like and try to eat accordingly. Many of these calm people have been at this for years, it will just take time for the rest of us who are still struggling a bit. We will get it too though!
Quoted from namelessfemm
I'm just not used to eating "food" in the mornings - and then after the ghee and flax - I'm good for a while....maybe I'll just eat a real breakfast around 10-ish...
Quoted from namelessfemm:-/ it's not going well.....I don't know what to do....
dinner - is lighter no or very very little carbs - lots of veggies and meat - with 1 tsp of flax (soaked)
7am - tsp ghee
830ish - totally not hungry - meat 5-6 oz and veggies --- this is the weird part~!! I'm not hungry but I eat it anyway but this does not seem to hold me over~! I'll still get hungry at 12ish....
so lunch is same + manna and/or s. potato and honey (for my carb fix)
and then sometimes I even need a snack around 3-4
should I keep going w/ the meat and veggies in the morning?
any wise guidance is appreciated (and v. much needed :-/)
thank youuuuuuuuu ^_^
Quoted from debraHello Namelessfemm...this is so typical of O's. To figure that they should only eat at the meals and that they should be able to go for hours before their body needs any nourishment again.
Quoted from debraRemember, your body is like a furnace and needs to be fueled to keep it going.
Quoted from debraI do think you need to incorporate a few more veggies with your meals (especially to help that manna bread and sweet potato along)
Quoted from debraand by all means if you need a snack...have one. Don't let the acid in your stomach take over as for us it is not a good thing.
Quoted from debra.....I was in a hurry to make it so I wouldn't get that 'I want to eat everything in sight' feelling.
Quoted from debraRead Robin's (such a wonderful cook),Suzanne's, Mikeo's, Kate's and all the rest of the O bloggers for information on what's an O to do. Lots of good information. I would suggest you read the other bloggers too because alot of them have good things to say also. :D
Quoted from debraKeep up with the snacks, but don't make them too big.
Quoted from debraSmall bites with all food and chew slowly. That saliva needs to mix in with the food so the stomach is ready for it. ;D
Quoted from debraAre you drinking enough fluids, getting enough sleep and enough exercise (my favorite)? ;)
Quoted from dragonsgold5I have noticed I do much better if I eat red meat and veggies in the morning. When I mentioned to someone having a breakfast of ground hamburger sauteed with spinach and onions, they gave me a really weird look. No, that doesn't sound like "breakfast" to most people, but I'm sure there's a few type-O BTD'ers who will say, Yeah, that sounds about right! ;)
Quoted from dragonsgold5I'm really glad to read this post and all the responses, because I had been wondering what was wrong with me: I get hungry all the time now!

Quoted from Becky..... but if your body says " FEED ME" then find some good protien and lots of veggies all day long. Your body is trying to play catch up right now, and is finally finding food to be completely useful..........instead of harmful and sickening.
Contrary to the world's idea of little breakfast, little lunch, huge dinner.........you may need to eat 6 or 7 times a day right now. There is nothing that says you can't eat 7 times a day if you are eating small portions of good protien and great veggies!!!
Quoted from LasseI just wondered, if I was the only one noticing the reason why you (Namelessfemm) cannot eat much in the mornings?
Nobody can, if you eat as much as you do later in the day! A big dinner at night, fills your stomach and your appetite is still gone the next morning.
Quoted from LasseThe easiest way to reverse your eating pattern, would be to starve yourself or fast a couple of nights, then watch out for that appetite next morning!
You could compare it to bad sleeping patterns. In bed late at night, can't get up in the mornings, can't sleep until late in the night..and so on and so on...
Quoted from debraNamelessfemme...you are doing very well girl.
Quoted from debraYes...bananas are good. I try to have a very small handful of nuts (walnuts, pumpkins seeds, almonds or pecans...or nut butter from them) with my banana or fruit. Just to get a little of that protein boost in there. Something that is really good...(my Greek BTD trip rescue recipe-Banana Concoction) is to have mashed bananas with two hard boiled eggs, a few nuts thrown in and some nutitional yeast on top. I also like it with Harmonia mixed in when I have it on hand which is most of the time. :) Yummilicious.
Quoted from debraAha...I see from your personal settings your secretor test is on the way. Sorry, didn't see that the other day.
Quoted from debraAnother thing that comes in handy for snacks is jerky. Easy to make when you have a dehydrator. Also, NAP's blueberry and chocolate cherry bars. So portable, so handy, so compliant, so Yummilicious.
Quoted from geminisueMight want to throw a handful of walnuts or/and almonds in your mouth mid afternoon, to carry you over to your dinner meal. Your doing fine! All will go well, keep up the good work.
Also, if your able to, go for a walk or two if only a brief period, get your mind out of the kitchen, enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. Breath Deeply. Helps you exchange your oxygen and feel healthier.
