July 24, 2010 - Day 4
272lb - Goal is 180
4T Bertolli ELOO (at wake and mid-afternoon)
I have been husky for most of my life. For the last five years I have been downright fat. Read the book (Found the site and browsed the forums before I bought the book from Amazon along with the ELOO) and started the plan a few days ago. I did 1T the first day and didn't notice much. Second day I did 1T twice, morning and night and didn't notice much (other than some bowel issues that were forewarned in the book). Decided to jump to 4T all at once the next day and was ravenously hungry by late afternoon. I pigged out all day long and was craving sweets. Also, the big glob of oil in my gut wasn't a good feeling. I began to doubt the plan but I remembered some of the anecdotes and figured I'll give it a month.
Day 4, today, I did 2T in the morning and had a banana for breakfast (90min later) went to lunch with some friends at a place where you prepare your own plate of meat and veggies and the cooks grill it for you. We all prepared veritable mountains of food and even had a contest about who could pile the most food onto their plate.
I enjoyed every delicious bite as I chatted with my lunch companions. Then something weird happened. In my head I thought I had cleared my plate but when I looked down it was barely half eaten. I stared at my fork for a few seconds debating in my head whether to put it in my mouth. I looked at my friends. They weren't fat like me but they were clearing their plates. Their hunger wasn't satiated. I put down my fork and asked for a container.
About 3hrs later I took another 2T of ELOO. That was 3 hours ago. Here I am, 6 hours after asking for a doggy bag, feeling very full with ZERO desire to polish off my lunch. If I hadn't read the book, I would almost think I was sick because this has never happened to me.
I am ready for this adventure.
