Another day in Shangri-la. After 6 weeks of wondering why the effect won't stay with me, switching my dose times to early morning and just before bed seems to have strengthened the SLD effect so much that I am free from compulsive overeating for the past two days. Either that or, after 6 weeks of being on the oil or sugar-water, the effect has finally begun to stay with me all day, everyday. Maybe I'm like the 7-week guy in the book?
Yesterday, I was free from compulsive thoughts over food all day. Words can't fully describe what peace and freedom this gives a person like me. I had a few bites of cottage cheese for breakfast and a was pretty full half way through lunch (but ate the rest of my veggies and meat anyway out of the clean-plate-club habit). By dinner, I was averagely hungry and ate an average size dinner with a yogurt for dessert. I was full and didn't want anything else but, of course, I did take my second dose of Canola before bed.
This morning, just my coffee has made me feel completely full. I can't even ponder food. OMG!
And, yes, I sleep better, too. I have always been a very light sleeper awakening many times in the night and unable to go back to sleep many nights in a row. Although I still wake up sometimes, I wake much less and go right back to sleep and feel rested every day.
Don't give up, people! Overeaters Anonymous has helped me with certain things over the past 10 years but, couldn't relieve my compulsive food addiction. A little oil twice a day and food is uninteresting to me. I actually feel like I can only imagine normal people feel about food. For me, it's an answer to much prayer (the begging and crying type).
