There's already a question with good general answers
on this topic, but if I take it as given that increasing protein and reducing carbs will help with satiety and that I'm going to have to burn more than I eat, how do I function with 1/2 a brain?
I can work on my anger issues (cranky is not a strong enough word), but I feel helpless to deal with the fact that if I eat lunch at 3 instead of noon, I become so dopey that I can't even figure out how to get away from my desk & go get something to eat. Eat? Food? How will I get there? Hunh? Wha? I'm afraid I'm going to be like this all the time
if I'm in calorie debt.
I'm 6'3", 245lbs & 43 years old & male.
