I started working about about a month ago, and started the T-Dawg diet about 3 weeks ago. When I started, I was a hefty 298 lbs. I am not down to 279 lbs. Something I have noticed is that I feel like I have to FORCE myself to eat. I simply find that I am NOT hungry at all.
My typical caloric intake would be as follows:
3 eggs scrambled
2 pieces of bacon
BIG Glass of water
Snack: Water and handful of mixed nuts
Lunch: Two broiled chicken breasts
2 cups steamed broccoli
Snack: Water and 5 or 6 slices of beef jerky
Steamed cabbage with smoked sausage and lots of Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning.
That's a pretty typical day. What I am FINDING is that at breakfast, lunch and dinner I am simply NOT HUNGRY.
I work hard at the gym…and on off days, hit the cardio fairly hard. What gives with the change in hunger and appetite? Is this a common side effect of the T-Dawg due to more fats and proteins in the diet, or am I simply not working myself hard enough at the gym?
I am NOT skipping meals. No matter how I feel, I know that my body needs FUEL to keep going. Am I doing the right thing?
