Fasting Journal 17: Pay attention to your body signals
I'm noticing that my desire for vegetables is diminishing and my tastes are changing. I mean BIG time!!
Here's what I'm noticing. I used to love tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. But something's happened and I don't know what to make of it. But I've decided to listen to my body.
For instance, now I prefer my tomatoes cooked down into a sauce but I don't like to just eat a sliced tomato. I do like them sundried, in olive oil though. I do still like the grape tomatoes but only just a few tossed in a green salad.
There's something about broccoli and cauliflower that's turning me off, which is really weird because those were two of my favorite veggies of all time. I mean cauliflower is so versatile! And broccoli soup? Hello?! But just the smell of them (raw or cooked) is turning me off. This is very bizarre to me.
Carrots I lost my taste for a few years back. I don't like them raw nor cooked. Come to think of it, I was allergic to them as a child. I grew out of the allergy though.
Cabbage, raw or cooked, is teetering on the verge of falling off my plate too. I do love sauerkraut though.
Eggplant, NEVER liked that! :o)
For now I'll eat my leafy greens and what naturally appeals to
me. In the meantime I'm going to look
into what may be causing this new aversion to some vegetables.
I'm thinking that maybe I just ate those veggies in the past because I was told they were so good for me. Maybe they weren't... Let's see what this sleuth can learn. Stay tuned!
Start Weight: 154
Today's Weight: 148.5 (-5.5)
2 hard boiled eggs
4 strips bacon
1.5oz Havarti cheese
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 oz shaved 90% dark chocolate
2 tbsp chopped pecans
2 drops stevia
2 chicken breast burgers
1 tbsp butter
Net Carbs: 10g
71% Fat, 26% Protein, 3% Carbs
3 sets of 12 squats
40 second wall sit
So I upped the squats from 10 repeats to 12. It's an improvement! Baby steps.
And I increased the wall sit from 25 seconds to 40 seconds. Woo hoo!
Chew on this:
- If you really hate certain vegetables, there may be a very good, physiological reason for it.
All done with fasting journal 17. Let's see what I learned about food aversion next.
