You know that feeling when you eat carbs that’s so satisfying? Kind of makes you a little bit sleepy afterwards, but it’s so worth it?
Man, I want that feeling right now. I want pasta, bread, crackers, chinese food, a flour tortilla.
Not going to happen though. I’ve learned that by not keeping that stuff in the house, it’s easier to avoid it. If I’m at school, I leave my wallet in the car. I know my lazy ass isn’t going to walk all the way to the car and back for a burrito. Instead, it forces me to stick to my rice chips and chicken salad.
I have to admit though, it’s been 12 days of gluten free and I feel the difference. It feels good.
I’m currently on my period (sorry if this is too much info) and I usually get so bloated that I can see my fat hanging over my jeans. This month it hasn’t happened. I can assure you, my jeans haven’t changed… I have.
The only problem with this diet is that my intestines are getting an overflow of fiber that it’s not used to. Fiber usually doesn’t reside in the junk food that I’m used to eating. And now that I’m eating a ton of veggies, seeds, fish, meat, and wholesome foods, my body isn’t ready to be able to process this amount of fiber. That will change over time though, hopefully.
As for today I’ve eaten my flax seed granola mix stuff with some lactose free milk, and some brown rice pasta with shredded cheese and some margarine melted on top.
I’ve also noticed that because I’m eating the “right foods” I don’t have the appetite that I used to. I’m not a never ending pit of doom anymore when it comes to eating.
That my friends, is a good thing. It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time.
