Not hungry after slow carb breakfast.....

I have noticed that after I eat my slow carb breakfast @ 7:30am, I am not hungry until around 3pm. My breakfast consist of 3 whole eggs, 1/2 link turkey smoked sausage and 1/2 cup black beans, water and is around 487 calories. Is this a problem? Why am I not getting hungry? I have just started my 4th week with only about 3 lbs lost. While I am discouraged with the the low weight loss, I am not ready to give up. I find this way of eating exceptionally easy and not at all depriving. Please help!

Are the EAS carb control protein shakes OK? Thought they contained milk products. Could this be why I am not losing the weight, not enough food? Can you tell me why I should swap the egg for beans? Thanks!

    Eggs have more fat, and beans have more fiber (to help move things along).

This illustrates the flaw i see in time's book, he says you don't have to count calories (i.e. protein,carbs,fat,fiber)

well if this person counted, kept track what he/she put in their body, we'd have more info to give advice.

real simple you find how many calories your body burns a day, mine is around 2,100, I work at a desk

to lose 1 lb a week thats 3,500 calories, divided by 7, thats 500 a day you should be missing

to lose 1 lbs, assuming you burn 2,100 a day.

well if you work out and do cardio you can be up at 3,000 calories a day

so you can eat 2,500 if you wanted and still lose weight

keep track of what you eat, every person who gets lean for a contest, as in bodybuilding or fitness/figure comps, keep track, why not regular diet people?

learn something from the pros so to speak

    A little harsh there buddy. 5'9" and 168lbs I would guess with little or no exercise, I would need 1700 to 1800 calories, will have to look. But my concern with not getting hungry, is hunger is tied to metabolism, correct?
  • jtrim4HB commented Feb 23rd 2011:
    I find it weird that this combo of food lets me go all day without hunger, which I don't think is good. The quicker I am hungry, the quicker I have burned that breakfast off. Didn't know if I should eat a snack even though I am not hungry or cut back AM

    You aren't eating sugar, your insulin is not spiking, then crashing and creating new hunger. You'll be full on atkins diet. Eat a steak you won't be hungry for 6 hours. Hunger is not tied to metabolism. Read up on insulin.

    After 2 months on this diet I have concluded that what I thought was hunger for my entire life was actually carb cravings caused by eating more carbs than needed. I too don't feel hungry with this diet but I think this is good not bad

I'm not sure why you aren't hungry, but you shouldn't wait until 3pm to eat again. Maybe throw in a protein shake around 11 to get you an added 20 grams of protein or more.

You could also try removing an egg from your breakfast and adding more beans.

I would try not eating SO much, and sticking to the eating every 4 hours rule. You can't be leaving so much time between meals; otherwise, it does not work effectively! Good luck!
