I have been avoiding food for about a month now. I still take vitamins. I eat one small meal late at night, anywhere from 300 calories to 600. Sometimes I will have some toast for breakfast with a little butter/margarine on it, for some energy while exercising. I carry ensure around with me in a little cooler, just incase my blood sugar runs low, but rarely use it. I still drink alot of water, and am up for some lemonaide, tea, or fruity drinks anytime, drinking fluids doesn't bother me at all.
I have lost weight, but it's ok, it was mostly fat. I was at 188lbs a couple months ago, yesterday I was right at 169lbs. I am 5'8, 35yrs. old. I am looking at food now as if it were just energy, nothing more.
I gotta say that it was sorta hard at first. When your body tells you to eat, you do just that. Now I just ignore it, and it doesn't pitch a fit anylonger. I see the results the very next day, when I am going to the bathroom only a few times, then I am done for the day.
I have been feeling quite a bit better, it has been a really nice change for me, and it is just what I needed, I was starting to lose hope. I have been getting out, just about every day I go and do something. The weather is nice too. I find that alot of the time, my energy is up, I feel good, and I enjoy meeting people. I just have to avoid eating a meal while I am out. I can eat a couple bites of something, or have crackers, without too much trouble, but mainly just avoid getting myself into a situation where I am expected to eat.
I can keep doing this for a while, but am going to have to find some way to replace calories soon, and I am on top of that. I do like ensure, and could get myself to drink several of them each day. Maybe some plain white rice, or macaroni mid day, which is high in calories. It looks like I will be good until August, as I experiment. I don't want to weigh less than 150lbs, I would not be happy with myself at all.
