I'll start by saying "Greetings". I'm not sure if others read this, or if it's just for me to keep track of my progress... I'm an old man with new technology!
I've decided to do the SBD, not because my weight is so out of control (But it is way too high. I'm 5'9, and weigh 200 pounds), but my blood work is TERRIBLE! (Triglycerides: 541 Total Cholesterol: 305). With numbers like that, I'm blessed to be alive! I had a stent placed in my LAD about a year ago. After that, one would think I'd really work hard at getting my blood numbers in line, but the truth is just as the SBD book shows... As I eat my usual foods, I get even more hungry.
Now, after 3 days on SBD, I find that I'm never hungry! The things I've eaten taste wonderful, and just minutes after eating, I feel pleasantly full, and see no reason to eat any more. I'm now concerned about not eating enough calories! My wife isn't going on the SBD with me, and since I'm not hungry, I just don't eat as much as the book tells me to. Today, I ate a good breakfast (2egg omelette with NF Mozarella cheese). Had a cup of coffee with it. Had a FF string cheese for a snack, and stuffed bell pepper for dinner. (Not sure if it's okay for a newbie like me to post a link to the recipe. Better safe than sorry!)
The first two days on SBD, I felt great! Energetic, and not hungry. Today I have a sore throat, and am dizzy, but that can't be related to the change in diet.
