(I haven't weighed in a while because hubby hid the scale's batteries, so that's why the numbers are stagnant, hateful anons) Start date: February 21st (when I started this blog
I'm a 35 year old gal from Missouri on a mission to change myself for the better. Not only wanting to change myself physically, but mentally as well. I've been heavy all my life and suffer from extremely low self esteem. Join me on my journey!
So I’m only day 3 of doing the Insulin Resistance Diet. I found that when I balance the carbs and protein like the book says, I stay satisfied for 3+ hours. However, if I eat too many carbs (I put jelly on my PB sandwich and unbalanced the carbs on day 1), I get HUNGRY. Like.. stomach feeling hungry.. the whole thing, not just in my head within like.. an hour. I can eat protein but it doesn’t seem to help. If I want for like.. 4 hours, it can ease up a bit, but sitting around feeling hungry for hours when you know that you can’t be.. it just annoying.
A friend on Facebook recommended this Dreamfield’s pasta stuff. It has 41 carbs, but the box claims only FIVE are digestible, so to count 5g carbs. Okay, so I had two servings, which was an average amount of pasta and almost immediately (wihtin the hour), I got the carb imbalance feeling again. I’ve been messed up all night. I keep eating, but trying to keep it within reason and to mostly protein. Right now I’m eating a PB sandwich on low carb bread just hoping I can knock the hunger down. I’ve also tried string cheese, greek yogurt, one serving of cheerios with 1% milk and a few almonds throughout the night and it barely made a dent. I’m frustrated that I have YET to have a perfect day on the IR diet. I’m so annoyed at this dreamfield’s pasta. Googling it yields interesting results. Basically, most call it a scam. Stupid pasta totally messed me up when I thought I was being so careful.
So annoyed that I could kick myself right now.
