I'm on my fifth day of twice-daily 2T shots of ELOO, seeing very significant appetite reduction. Two questions, both related to how this AR interacts with basic biological need:
1) The thing I'm dealing with is feeling like "I should eat". Like, it's dinner time now, so now we have dinner. I'm not hungry per se, and after eating just a little, I'm done. Should I eat just because it feels like it's time? Or is that part of the high-set-point habit that there is to break? I read about Seth having one meal every two days... That just feels wrong. I don't feel hungry or weak (presumably because of my new lowered set-point), but I worry about fueling myself. Yesterday I ate SO LITTLE FOOD compared to how I usually eat! Normally I'd be miserable. Am I miserable and can't feel it? This is extremely weird.
2) I'm intending to train for a half marathon sometime around the end of the year. I've been running 6-10 miles a week for the last several months, and about to start really ramping that up. Will I need more food to do that? Without an appetite, I'm not quite sure I know how to manage my input to an appropriate level. How does fueling yourself so sparsely interact with an intense exercise regime?
The first couple days I felt like I must be sick, and then I realized that the only time I have no appetite is when I am sick. It was pure psychology.
