In regards to BID, it (supposedly) replaces the missing "full" signal.
^The problem I see with taking a tablet to control that feeling is that it's not really controlling it because when the body adjusts or starts to metabolise that drug faster & one reaches the ceiling of theraputic safety- then you're back to where you began.
It may work as a circuit breaker - but it's not the answer long term. Nor is will power - of which us humans are notoriously defiicient in.
So approaching the management of Grehlin (hunger hormone) from several different directions aside from medication is more likely to succeed.
Controlling or managing stress and promoting the hormones that reduce appetite is.
Meanwhile, after a short period of paddling on the spot and wondering what I was doing - I dropped another 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds). I'm feeling like I can pull in my abdominal muscles now and it makes a difference.
I'm not hungry so now I'm trying to be very selective regarding what I do eat. Controlling my appetite for protein is the biggest hurdle.
I'm not craving carby foods much at all but I do miss baking bc it was a hobby of sorts. So last week I visited a lady who cannot bake for herself due to disability and made her 16 big thumping blueberry muffins and.... didn't do a taste test lol....
And at home I made some coconut macaroons and expected that I might have the urge to eat all of them within a week with break-out desire for them. Again, it helped just making them but as soon as I had one... my expected desire that I was afraid of - wasn't there. I've still got about 6 left and cannot find the desire to eat more than one every few days. They're nice & I do enjoy the biting into them but somehow (thankfully) my brain isn't lighting up so much with the belly feel.
Last night I made a recipe for low carb/Keto chocolate chip cookies. Again, thoroughly enjoyed the making but not so fussed about getting them out of the oven and tasting them. The dough is in the fridge and I'll bake them tonight I guess. I'm doing a lot of research into baked products that do not have sugar or can be made from sugar alternatives. But now I'm discovering that despite the marketing - some sugar alternatives can and will spike insulin.
Now that I'm satisfied that hunger isn't going to drive me back to the kitchen after I eat - I have to start putting more effort into nutrient rich cooking.
