Yes….today I am like The Very Hungry Caterpillar! I must be off in my intake of something (protein? carbs?) because all of a sudden, about 20 minutes ago, I nearly instantly became ravenously hungry. It started as a little nag but I can’t believe how fast and furious the stomach pain and frustration and irritability and feeling BAD set in!
I quickly fixed it with a sandwich of Arnold’s Whole Grain Sandwich Thins, a staple in my diet that goes with almost everything for only 1 point! On this I piled some salad and 2 Tbs of baba ganoush.
Up until then, today I have had:
Then I finished off the tub of Fage yogurt with the mix-ins. It had:
5 ounces plain yogurt
About 1/4 cup of canned pumpkin
1 TBS honey
1/4 cup of Kashi U cereal
A bunch of cinnamon
I thought this would hold me until lunchtime! But it didn’t. So around 10:30 when I started getting hungry I pulled out the juicer and had a glass of carrot/apple/beet/ginger (my favorite!). Today’s was particularly sweet…don’t know why. Maybe ‘cuz I tossed a Gala apple I had that nobody was eating in there instead of the usual Granny Smith. Definitely have to make that again…it was really really great!
And then about 11:30 or so is when I had that unexpected ravenous attack!
Now I am trying to decide if I am still hungry or not. I feel “yes”…but I am trying to give my body some time with the sandwich to see if I can get away without eating for a few more hours.
