    It is 3:30 p.m. here on my Down Day,
    I've been successful so far, and my plan allows a bit more food in a couple of hours.

    I just finished eating 1/4 cup of eggwhites
    with a small bit of sauted onion, green pepper, and mushrooms,
    topped with 3/4 oz reduced fat cheese. and......
    I AM SO VERY HUNGRY right now.
    This is Saturday and the weekend.

    I managed to avoid eating too much so far today by going shopping
    and I spent way too much money on 3 new coats...Yes, 3.
    It isn't even what most people call cold here in central California....
    I have savings and they were on sale, so Today won't kill my budget,
    but I can't shop every single Down Day.
    I need to build more tolerance for weekend Hunger. :break_diet:

    Try arranging it so down days are mon, wed, and fri. Eat mostly protein on those days, b/c carbs are what make you hungry. I don't get hungry when I eat mostly carbs. Or stick to protein shakes. I can go indefinitely on those.:)

    Have you tried making soup. I make a big pot for 100 calories eat that during the day.
    As soozsb says drinking the shakes also helps in the day and a meal at night.

    Thanks, soozsb. [​IMG]
    I microwave my protein powder into little cookies.
    Many years ago I spent 6 months on a Dr-Supervised liquid diet,
    and since that time I cannot bear to drink my food.

    I agree with you about Protein on Down Days. (and I think it's also important on Up Days).
    According to the charts, the basic Protein Recommended Daily Allowance
    for my size and weight is about 41 grams.
    I am usually near that on Down Days,
    and usually surpass it on Up Days.

    In the past sometimes I've had M/W/F as my Down days,
    and I might choose do that again sometime.
    My husband is taking every Friday off until New Years,
    and will be taking many other vacation days this Holiday season
    so right now I don't think that will help me.
