Farewell Satiety.

This is day 2 and I am having more physical sensations than I though would happen. The herofiber™ and  fortefiber™ that the maker claims makes the fiber in these cookies and snacks 9 times more fibrous is doing something weird to my GURD situation. I understand having to feel hungry but this is not right. I hope this is just a thing my system has to adjust to and won't kill me.

On a lighter note a couple of days ago, before the big D-day, I had these 2 Daily Deals vouchers that would just go to waste if I didn't use them before going on the diet.
A last hurrah of indulgence was in order.

What we see here is a Juicy Burger with double meat, pastrami, pineapple, avocado, cheese, grilled onion, and letuce. Sweet potato fries on the side. It went down easy and was very delicious.

Exhibit two is $10 worth of Tutti Frutti soft serve yogurt. On the right strawberry cheesecake with cheesecake sprinkles inside and candy rocks on top. On the left watermelon and pomegranate sorbet with . . . I don't remember. It too was very delicious (candy rocks not so much). I worked on this for a couple of days and ended up throwing out the rest.

The new way of eating, at least the first few months, is very very low fat and carbs. Fat and to some degree carbs are what make for the feeling satiety. I attribute most of my excess fat to a craving for fatty foods. Cheese the main culprit. I was in a grocery checkout line a while back and a guy in line commented on my cheese purchase. He said he didn't like cheese so much and didn't understand why some people like is so much. This was not a tiny guy by any means. I wondered what made him fat. He was from a different culture I assumed.

It will be interesting to see how I deal with the cravings that never went wanting before.
