Today had coffee, no breakfast and then a tuna sandwich at 11.45 as I was hungry. Got home about 1pm, took full dose, waited an hour, felt very bloated and nauseous and very shaky, like low blood sugar. Had an english muffin with butter and jam (obviously not the best choice ) and feel TERRIBLE-Shaky, tired and sick I don't feel hungry but feel as if my blood sugar is really low. Just had some almonds but don't feel as if I can stomach anything else.
Where am I going wrong?
Shaky et. al. is what happens to me when I don't get enough calories. It is weird and strange to need need food, but your body has no appetite. The other symptom I get that signals I need to eat is I start salivating.
My personal theory is that your can move your body's set point only so fast, and if you try to move it faster you get symptoms as it complains.
I also find it odd how the appetite suppression includes that thing you've notice that you don't just have a desire for to eat, but also that if you do it will give you a stomach upset; as if the entire digestive track has shrunk/shut-down.
So maybe, your just trying too hard. I figure I can - best case - expect to loose a bit less than a pound a week; and so I set my expectations about how long it's going take as say half a pound a week. Then I just try to not obsess about it.
I eat when I'm hungry, to be sociable, and to settle my stomach. Yogurt is good for the last one. I occasionally have an issue with coffee deciding to irrate my stomach and I back off and let it heal. I make some effort to avoid dittos; the snack food in the breakroom .
Also try putting individual symptoms into the forum's search box. Shaky isn't uncommon .
