So yesterday I went a little tiny bit crazy with food, Starbucks for breakfast and pizza for lunch. Yesterday afternoon all the way home all I could think of was chocolate. I had to fight with myself not to stop at a convenience store and get chocolate. After dinner last night, you guessed it, I caved and had chocolate.
So this morning I realized that I need to get my act together, I couldn't eat like that again. So I had my oatmeal for breakfast and a salad for lunch and some fruit and am feeling very proud of myself. Well guess what?? I have no desire for chocolate today. There's chocolate here and I don't even want it.
I've been doing a lot of nutritional reading and they say when you eat refined carbs (Starbucks, pizza) your body will crave more. It's true. Also, my lunch yesterday was around 800 calories. My lunch today was around 350 calories and I'm still comfortably full. So let's review. Highly refined foods are high in calories and cause you to crave more. While whole, healthy foods fill you up for a lot less calories and it lasts longer. Hmmmm, which should I eat more often???
