Sunday night, I made an amazing grilled ahi tuna with sun-dried tomato pesto for dinner. It was HEAVENLY. To go with it, my niece made a pasta salad. Now I'm doing low carb, so pasta salad is a no-no, but I got a special lower carb pasta and I really watched my serving size.
Unfortunately, even with the lower carbs, this pasta still ended up being more carbs than I've had in one day for quite a long time. The result? I slept very poorly and very little Sunday night. I woke up with an upset tummy that bothered me all day. I was sluggish. And extreme hunger and food cravings returned.
This turned out to be a GREAT lesson for me. The carbs that I have been gorging on for years may taste yummy but they are not good for me. They are making me fat and sick. My body was telling me "NO! I don't like it when you eat all this...please stop!" Well this time, I am listening!
