We just got home from the vet---Mayo was having a recheck following her surgery....and there was concern that she also may be diabetic...But that's another story for a different place. It was 6:15 and we were still at the vet. I thought of coming home at that hour and then beginning to cook. I'm sorry....those of you who work all day and come home at 6:00 and then have to cook....you have my complete admiration. Me? I was wiped out and the thought of cooking made me want to cry. So DH said, "Call and order a pizza." I did....and all the way home, I debated, "To eat or not to eat that is the question?"
I took the smallest piece. I ate 4 bites of it. It was the saltiest most disgusting thing I 'd eaten in a long time. So gladly, I left it. Let THEM eat that crap. Maybe I'll make myself a salad. Or maybe I'll just eat some strawberries and a hand full of nuts. (because making a salad at this hour counts as "cooking" and I'm off duty now)....Dr Fuhrman says that a rumbling, painful grumbling tummy is not hunger. It is detoxing from the poisons you typically eat. TRUE hunger is felt in the mouth and throat...it is not painful or unpleasant. And I'm finding this to be true.
When I first started eating cleanly, at about an hour or two before meals my stomach would pitch a fit. It no longer does that. Even now at 7:00 when all I've had since breakfast was a smoothie at 12:30....even now, my stomach is at peace. Food sounds good....and that is part of true hunger...but I no longer experience toxic hunger.
So once again, pizza failed the taste test. I don't think Ill be trying it again.
