I’ve felt very satisfied today. I am starting to get a little hungry but dinner is only about 45 minutes away so I’m not going to have anything until then. No heartburn today – probably because I didn’t consume any cream. The bread yesterday and today did not set up any cravings. I’m experimenting with ways to increase my carbs without using up my protein allotment. I continue to be amazed at how nearly everything, except fat, has protein in it. One suggestion for increasing my carbs was to get a microwave popcorn popper because popcorn has higher carbs but not much protein in it. I would hope I could find one here in Oz? Anyway, the Dr. K experiment continues and I’m feeling good on it!
