Where did all the hunger go?
The only thing I can attribute that to is eating low carb. When I notice it's time to eat, sometimes I have to convince myself to actually do it, because I'm not driven by that maddening "I've got to eat something this very second!" feeling.
I've noticed this before when I cut back on sugar, flour and potatoes. It's almost like eating those things turns on the hunger signal, and not eating them turns it off. There's probably something scientific going on here. If I were feeling more scientific I'd crawl into a petrie dish and take copious notes.
However, mild curiousity does not a scientist make. I guess, in a way, I am involved in a vast experiment, trying to figure out how to live my life in a healthier way day-in and day-out from now on forever and ever amen. When I started out, I felt overwhelmed by it all. Now I'm just in the day-in and day-out part. Keepin' on keepin' on. I wish the journey could be a little more exciting, especially for my blog-followers. But sometimes it's just not. And I think that's part of the life lesson...hang in there when it's not exciting. Just another day on the road to a new life.
I'm grateful, today, that I'm not hungry!
