Yesterday, later in the day, I found that I was absolutely famished! I was edgy and oh so hungry. I mean really hungry! I chose to eat, but after a bit, even though I wasn't as hungry, I still wanted to eat. I ended up going to bed just to stop "listening" to my appetite. I had eaten over 2000 calories and still wanted to eat. I thought that was odd.
This morning I analyzed what I ate. Just over half my nutrients came from carbohydrates yesterday. The carbs were all whole grain, but as a type 2 diabetic, I knew that probably was not a good choice. I'm still "experimenting" with how my body reacts to foods and exercise. I decided that today I'd shoot for a really balanced nutrient mix. Actually, I decided I'd eat mostly vegetables and protein, but at snack time, I was really craving carbs, so I ate a Luna Bar and drank a glass of unsweetened Almond Breeze. For dinner, I made a pot of soup with ground bison, black and pinto beans, and a variety of vegetables. It was delicious! I measured out a predetermined portion and ate till I was satisfied.
Two hours later, I'm still satisfied! I looked at my nutrient mix for the day and I see that I've split my nutrients nearly equally in thirds. I've only eaten barely 1700 calories today...and I'm satisfied! I plan to continue with this mix in hopes of controlling my appetite. Hope it keeps up!
