I have been able to maintain a healthy athletic diet with very little snacking and very little refined / processed sugar. My weight has stayed stable at 183#. If I want to continue to lean out, I will have to reduce caloric intake. There are opportunities to reduce processed carbohydrates such as bread (for lunchtime sandwich and with dinner). I could also start counting the macadamia nuts I eat as a snack. The best would be to begin to reduce portion size and be comfortable being a little hungry at the end of a meal.
That hunger is simply a reminder from my brain that my fat stores are not as high as they once were. I need to remember that given the ease at which calories can be acquired, high fat stores are not required for survival.
I am still looking forward to checking my A1C in another 5 weeks.
