NEED FEEDBACK ON MY PROTOCOL


Hello,
I would like to get feedback on my protocol. Here is what I eat daily (I do substitute kinds of fish (not the amount though, but the rest is pretty much the same). I have not eaten sugar or flour for about seven years now. I do not use any sauces, spices, salt, etc. and eat only whole food boiled or raw.

12:00 p.m. – Meal 1:
1. 2.5 oz of rockfish fillet
2. 1.5 oz avocado
3. 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
4. 4 oz cooked red bell peppers with tomatoes

2:30 p.m. – Meal 2:
1. 1/2 cup lentils
2. 1.5 eggs
3. 1/2 cup (2 oz) sliced raw carrots and 1/2 cup (2 oz) cut raw broccoli

6:00 p.m. – Meal 3:
1. 1/2 cup (2.5 oz) chicken
2. 1/2 cup cooked bulgur wheat
3. 7 walnut halves
4. 5 oz sliced raw cabbage and 3 oz chopped raw tomato

I started Brooke’s Lose 8 Pounds in June program on June 1st. I was 108 pounds. 5’2″. I did well during the week and in 5 days, I lost 4.8 lb, but then overate both days on the weekend and gained some of the weight back. It became a pattern. I do well and lose weight during the week and then overeat over the weekend. I understand that weekends can be harder because they are less structured for me and I am more left with my feelings I need to process, but what bothers me that during the week, I am constantly feeling hungry. The week begins fine, but more days I eat what’s on my protocol, the hungrier I get each day. I begin thinking about food more and more often. By Wednesday, I literary cannot wait until my next meal, even if I am in the middle of something important and interesting that I used to be so focused that I would not think of food. I have also noticed that I have less energy during my workouts that I have been doing for years and feel fatigued and lethargic. I am thinking of food all the time and catching myself on the thought, “When am I going to eat “normally?” I did cut the amount of food I used to eat while maintaining 107-108 lb weight and feel like I am purposefully “starving” myself to lose weight faster. But I am also wondering what if it is just my brain messing with me and I need to be longer on this protocol to become fat adapted. However, even when I am typing this, I am feeling panic and resistance about being on this protocol. I use the self-coaching tools Brooke teaches and am getting better and better at managing my emotions and urges, but I feel like I am not giving myself enough food.

What do you think about my protocol? What am I doing wrong?
