So how did the first day go?

I can honestly say that I have only eaten 800 calories when I started writing this and I am not hungry.  The bad part is that I woke up today with a headache.  By lunchtime, it had reached head splitting and shortly after that it reached migraine.  Now would it have reached the migraine level if I weren't making such a large dietary change?  I will never know that.

I do know from past history that when I am eating low carb and not drinking diet coke that I have fewer headaches.  I haven't had a diet coke in over a week.  As the headache grew more through the day it could have been a side effect of the dietary change and my body started going through carb withdrawals if there is such a thing.

Fat Fast Scramble
Breakfast started good.  I used my  stone wave cooker to prepare breakfast. One egg, two teaspoons butter, one tablespoon finely chopped ham and 1/8 cup cheddar cheese (NOT low-fat cheddar).

Cheese burger with avocado
 Lunch was made in the stone wave cooker too.  Two ounces of hamburger 80% lean, 1/8 cup shredded cheddar cheese and a few slices of avocado.

Cocoa-coconut butter & peanut butter
When the headache was getting worse, I wondered if it had to do with lack of food. So I started eating the "fat bomb" as they call it.  But if you have ever had a migraine, you know that you can be nauseated then add two it something so strange as this fat bomb.  I only ate about a third of it before I lay down for a short rest.  When I got up, I ate about a tablespoon of peanut butter because I knew I was going to be short of calories if I didn't.  (The fat bomb was 1 tablespoon each of coconut butter and peanut butter with 1 teaspoon dark cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 5-6 drops of liquid stevia.)

Egg and Cheese Lace Soup
  Supper went better.  I made an old favorite.  I only had fat free chicken broth at home so I used that with 2 teaspoons of butter added.  I brought that to a boil, added 1 whipped egg.  When I put it into the bowl, I sprinkled the fattening shredded cheddar cheese.  Again 1/8 cup was all that was needed.

Egg and bacon

At 10 PM I am forcing my 5th feeding.  I am not hungry but I know that I need to make the 1000 calories for the day.  One egg and I crumbled the bacon that I crisped the day before and stored with it's grease. Again, I made it in the stone wave cooker.

This morning my sugar started at a weekly high of 178 and just before the final feeding, it had dropped to 136.  Still on the high side of where doctors would like to see it but coming down to within reason.  Just out of curiosity, I stepped on the scale before my last feeding and I was down a pound.

Don't worry, I won't be giving you daily updates.  But I thought you might be interested in seeing some of the recipes.  Any my headache is gone! Hopefully it stays that way.
