I started the 800 calorie diet and this is my third day. I’d lost ten pounds on my own the last two months, eating sensibly and mostly Mediterranean, about 1000 calories (my preferred diet anyway) but then something happened and I stopped being able to finish a meal, even a small one. Meals were thrown out hardly touched. I felt hungry but eating anything was difficult, even my favourites. I didn’t find this diet a problem, except three days in I am suddenly hungry but unable to eat. The very thought of food makes me gag, yet I need and want it. This happened tp me in the 80s when I did the very low carb and calorie Scarsdale Diet. I developed an anorexia of sorts and lost weight rapidly. I sent from 137 pounds to 89 pounds. Then depression hit, hard.
My husband is ding Dr. Taylor’s three shakes plus salad a day. He’s fine with it. I’m using real food with the recipes in Dr Mosley’s book. Recipes I like – but now gag at. I can’t get the 800 calories in and that’s dangerous. This is really odd and I wonder if anyone else has experienced this. Maybe low card doesn’t suit my body type? I’m desperate to reverse diabetes because the insulin is just making belly fat and this is REALLY dangerous.
