Ketosis - wow! But am I now eating enough?

So, it's day 12 for me of induction.

I am NOT hungry. For me, a carb junkie who before low carbing would have scoffed enough crap to satisfy a starving builder by this time of day, that is a miracle.

So, do I continue to eat my meals, despite not really wanting them, or can I cut down?

I had two fried eggs with one piece of bacon at half past ten this morning, not because I was hungry, but because I thought I should probably eat something. I am planning on having roast chicken with broccoli for dinner this evening (and a splodge of mayo to keep fat intake up as I don't eat cheese), and I think I will be fine until then.

Should I have some egg mayo later this afternoon anyway, even if I feel okay without it?

If you think your blood sugar levels are stable, you can maybe start skipping or prolonging time between meals if you really arent hungry for them. I eat when hungry, which when in proper ketosis is only 3 times a day. Good luck smile

I did end up having 2 eggs mashed with mayo, I was worried about not getting enough fat.

I am still not starving though, not like I would have been.

However, the chicken which is currently roasting in the oven is tempting me!

Mmmm enjoy smile

I know what you mean - I ate lunch at 11.30, then had nothing until half an hour ago when I thought I should probably have something so I had home cooked ham with cabbage cooked in butter. I wasn't really hungry but had done a fitness DVD and been for a run and worried I would feel rotten later on and struggle to sleep if I don't eat now...

It's a fine line isn't it between only eating when you're hungry and not letting hunger get the better of you!
