Well, end of week 2 report.
Interesting week, up to Wednesday I was taking 2T of SW at 1000 and 1600. Very effective both physically (appetite suppression) and physiologically (no cravings or desire for high density foods) on Wednesday afternoon I switched to anywhey protein powder. Although the appetite suppression remained for 2 days, the cravings returned by NEXT MORNING. Looking at my food log, I see that I added high density foods (hash brown, Italian sausage, protein bar) to my regular meals on Thursday. By 1600 Friday I was STARVING. I returned, sadly, to SW on Saturday morning.
Intake and weight report. For the week I took in 9888 calories (Monday to Saturday), burned 5421 calories on the tread mill.
Lost 1.5 kg. Starting weight on Monday 102kg ending weight on Saturday 10.5kg.
BTW, I see that some are commenting on the logging habits of a few of us. Yes, I know that SLD is about the freedom to eat whatever you want. I track to be able to quantify my progress. If I had 3-5 lbs to loose, fine, I wouldn't track. But I still have 40lbs to my desired goal and 50lbs to my "ideal" weight. I have to be able to track progress or lack thereof. If something is not working, my protein experiment been an example, I have a written "database" to track what caused the change or what is or is not working. When I find a personal pattern of actions and behaviors that are taking me to my goal, I will quit tracking. For now, it would be foolish not to keep a log.
