iI ate like an absolute asshole today.
No clue what was up, I'm guessing my hormones are out of whack or something. Breakfast was half a protein bar nibbled on at work between 10am and 12pm so by the time lunch time rolled around, my body was literally screaming at me to feed it.
The funny thing is, I went to smash the home made chickpea curry i made (cos you know, veggie protein) and I got through 1/4 of it before my stomach was like, "Nuh bitch you're full" Serious?! You've literally eaten half a protein bar today.
Anyone that knows me would be like, "DAFUQ?!" I eat like an Ethiopian child that's been given access to a never ending packet of Tim Tams but today, my stomach wasn't having a Barr of it. I literally felt like I'd eaten 10 bowls of pasta. Weird.
I managed to get down half a protein bar, a handful of pumpkin seeds and a little bag of m&ms during the course of the day but as soon as I was faced with an actual meal my stomach again, "Nuh bitch, you're full"
I told my body I was going to "snack" on cheese toasties when I got home from work. But I lied to it; that was dinner. But it worked, I got three down! #cheesethough
What the actual fuck is wrong with my brain and its relationship with food today?!
It's legit like I have to trick my body into thinking it's just having a snack before it will let me eat anything. If I tell it that it's about to have a meal, it chucks a tanty and tells me I'm already full?! This coming from the girl that calls to order dinner and then calls back 5 minutes later to order another meal "for her housemate"...yeah both of those orders are mine. Sorry Alaina for using your name in a blasphemous manner.
It's 8pm and I've barely covered 1000 calories and I'm still not hungry. Im successfully entertaining the idea of eating a salada cracker or or two but actual dinner? Stomach feels like I've already eaten it.
Could be hormones or it could have something to do with my changes in diet? I just don't know enough about nutrition to be able to work this one out. I can tell you this much:
1) I've increased from around 20g of protein a day to between 100-150g
2) my carb intake has reduced (a tiny bit)
3) my calories have been dropped to 1500 from 2000 a day
4) I've increased my HIIT and cardio training to 3-4 times a week and I weight train every 2nd/3rd day.
AND I've had a violet crumble sitting in my fridge for well over a week...those are my favourite... no interest in eating it.
Bloody hell appetite?! Do you need a fucking tampon?! Calm your farm.
