You are brave to get on the scale the day after, I choose technique over truth in this instance! haha Somethings I just don't want to know.
I find I am hungrier for a day or so after carb nite, sometimes it seems as if eating that food stokes my old habits of incorporating carbs into meals. I have to remind myself that those are off limits for the next week. I also stuggle on occasion as to what is head hunger and what is stomach hunger. I was hungry last night when I got home late evening, I ate well all day, but I had stomach hunger so I did eat. The book states to eat to hunger so I followed that advice. Sometimes I wonder if I should ignore it and go to bed hungry or feed it for best results.
By the way I found a meal I love. I had extra chicken left over from another meal, topped it with a little shredded co jack cheese, fresh avocado, and a tbsp of salsa and sour cream. It was very yummy and satisfying.
