Bad-for-You Food

Monday, November 11, 2013

Why does food that is bad for your become so much more appealing when you are sick? I have been fighting "something" for several days. For the last 24 hours, it has been winning. Do I want to eat broth or eat fruit? No, I want sugar. Hot chocolate, cookies. My brain is fighting a war while my body is fighting the villains. I am trying to drink lots of water to stave off the urges, but it is tough. Hopefully my immune system will kick in and help today.

    My unscientific theory is that when you really, really, really crave something, there's something in that food that your body needs. (sounds good anyway!)

    Hope you soon feel better. Hot water with lemon might take away the sweet urges - but once they start lifting their ugly heads they do have a habit of staying in the forefront.
