I had designated yesterday to be a Fat Fast but it didn't quite go according to plan.
I had my usual keto coffee in the morning. Lunch was a stick of celery stuffed with a smallish piece of blue vein cheese.
I didn't eat again until after 6 pm ...... except for the huge amount of pork crackling. Much to my surprise I did get to the point where I wasn't interested in eating more. That never happened when I was eating fresh bread or toast with butter and whatever filling or topping I felt like.

My weight is up again. It's still within the acceptable 5 pounds of maintenance, but only just
I'm going back to look over some of Diane Sanfilippo wisdom and also a look in Dave Asprey's blog after listening to their podcasts and here. They both mentioned something about what to do when you need to make a change because what you are doing has stopped working effectively.

My brain would really be quite happy if I gave up but then I'd get into that vicious cycle of poor choices, brain fog and fatigue for no good reason.
I will just keep on reading and learning until I hit the right balance for me
