The joy of being hungry
Sunday, May 22, 2016
One of the things I have noticed is that now that I have kicked my carb addiction and my eating is suited to my pre-pre-diabetic self, I actually get hungry in a "normal" way. That is, I notice that I am hungry and think, "oh yeah, looks like I should eat something."
This is very different from feeling hungry before. If I let myself get hungry (which I tried never to do) my hungry thoughts where:
"AAAAAARG. I should have eaten something 20 minutes ago and now I am hungry so I must eat but I have no idea what to eat. You want me to make a decision? You have to be kidding me, I can't decide anything, I'm hungry. Oh well, screw the meal, let me eat a bag of chips. Right. Now."
I had a crazy day today and missed one of my meals before I realized it. And then I felt hungry....and it was such a nice feeling. And what do you know, I had a quick snack option with me and I was good to go.
