Day 207 (13 restart): Don't let yourself get hungry...

Today I had to go to Virginia for work.

I did not plan very well and so by lunch time, I was exhausted, dehydrated, and starving.

What I noticed was that when I am in that condition, I want to eat every carb in the book.

But, of course, I resisted and my saving grace was that they brought my salad before the carb-filled appetizer my friend had ordered or else I may have caved.

As soon as I ate the salad, I felt better. My resolve was back and I had no desire to eat any of the "cheat" foods.

Lesson: Don't let yourself get hungry. There is no reason to on this diet. Bring pepperoni, bring cheese, bring boiled eggs, bring anything you have to. But keep yourself hydrated and keep yourself full.

  1. Here! Here! Keep yourself full! Great advice! I am not on the atkins, but even with low calories I keep the carbs to a minimum, because they just have too many calories! I keep cheese (string and other) with me at all times. I also keep bacon in the fridge at work (2 slices = 70 calories) and pop a couple pieces in the microwave for a high flavor snack. I need to boil some eggs, thanks for reminding me!
