The last three weeks I have been absolutely ravenous. No matter how much I eat I am still hungry. I have especially been craving meat. Chicken, beef, turkey it doesn't matter. I'm just in major carnivore mode. Any idea what might be causing this?

When choosing foods from the lists provided here, how can I enter just a portion of it to my daily log? For instance, entering 1/2 c. of milk instead of 1 c.

I agree about the vegetables - 5 to 8 cups of vegetables a day would fill you up and give you vitamins. I think the carnivore mode just comes from the high fat content of the meat you are eating - you are craving the tasty fat more than the actual meat (in my humble opinion)
Every day is a new day.

No question, you are eating too little. Awesome you've lost so much so far. but starving yourself will not get you the results you want. Add some exercise and up your calories with lean proteins, lean carbs and low fat.

They probably are things that are minimally processed and high in fiber and full of vitamins.
THings like vegetables even starchy ones are leaner, then even the most rustic wheat or rice or quinoa.

If you are doing a vegan thing though you have more liscence to eat more carbs and less fat.
If you are doing a paleo or high fat diet stick to veggies. Or a potato for cheat days
If you are on a more typical diet, brown rice and grains, and high quality or homemade bread. But they will have lots of calories so maybe for dinner or lunch.

Generally carbs are in a lot of things and you don't need as many a you think. So make sure that you eat ones with lots of vitamins that you can enjoy.

A good rule of thumb for low carb thinking... that one gram of fiber cancels out one gram of sugar for regular. High sugar foods without a lot of carbs would be harder to use. This isn't true for diet food.
For example while white potatoes aren't as sweet, they have more sugar and less fiber
so if you needed to eat one for nutrition purposes and not for a cheat day or recipe... then you could pick the sweet potato and get more nutrition.

Also a bowl of cheerios and a bowl of plain oatmeal with greek yogurt. The cheerios does have SOME fiber... but it has so much sugar, that even if you added a spoon to your oatmeal it would still be more nutritious because of vitamins and protein

What works for someone else do not necessasilary work for you ... we are different individuals with different preferences!

I am a big eater and go for high volume low calorie and low fat food. Meat specifically ... Ostrich steak and mince, skinless chicken, hake, etc.

When I am hungry inbetween meals ... tomatoes, carrots, beetroot and yes ... pickles.

It is very important to:

1. Establish your recommended daily calorie intake to lose weight
2. Stick to it and try to eat it all
3. What you dont eat today your body will miss tomorrow
4. If you are hungry you eat the wrong food ... no need to be hungry
5. There is a difference between being hungry and having cravings
6. A craving only lasts 20 minutes
7. If your body realise you are starving it, it will go into "emergency survival mode" and hold back!

It is a marathon ... Not a sprint!

Not true, your bodies cells don't stop using energy and go on a diet lol, it will find resources from muscle, but after a while your body will attack the storage of fat instead of taking from your stored muscle fat,
That's call autophagy, most doctors believe from studies it starts somewhere around 20 to 24 hrs after fasting.

yes, everybody's body reacts in a similar but different way, too many wives tales in the diet world spread over decades, plenty of "legitimate" studies, plenty of bogus ones as well.
