Days 4 & 5

It's Day 5 of Jenny's road to fat loss via the PSMF highway and I wanted to give you all an update on how I'm feeling and how the "diet" is working out.

Day 4, yesterday, was a definite test of my mental fortitude. I was hungry most of the day - even shortly after eating 10 oz boneless pork, piles of fibrous veggies, and a 2-scoop casein shake.

In the afternoon, I met a friend at the local fairgrounds where he was working a horse show. His company was one of the sponsors, so we got to hang in the VIP tent which, btw, was loaded with FOOD. Cheese, crackers, fruit, those giant cookie and brownie squares, pasta, sausage and peppers, and some kind of crabcake sliders...and I couldn't eat ANY of it. On our way out, I grabbed a teeny square of cheese which my dear friend, bless his sole, immediately wresteled from my hand and promptly threw away. It's so good to have support!

For dinner I had chicken and broccoli and then went out to meet friends at the Tiki Bar for one of their b-day and just had diet coke. Apparently I am allowed to drink straight vodka - gotta love it - but I was driving and also quite hungry and didn't think alcohol would have been a great idea. I was short on protein for the day by probably 30 g, so I need to do better at getting in the required amount or I'll be even hungrier!

Physiologically, it took a bit to get everything, uh, moving through my system. But I've increased my veggies and added psyllium husk fiber and more fluids which seem to have done the trick. Long walks with my dog also help me to keep everything going.

Today is supposed to be a training day, but my lower back is still not right (messed it up a week or so ago and it still feels out of whack). Will push my workout to tomorrow afternoon so I can get in to see my Chiropractor. He's had really good results when I get twisted like this.

It's 10:30 a.m. and I'm hungry - but I usually am anyway. Time to keep busy and keep hydrated!

Now when I do PSMF, I get diarrhea. I did it a couple years ago and it had the opposite effect.
