Day 15 of going low carb - regaining my appetite

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.25.2010

Before, I mentioned that the supplements had made me feel not very hungry. That blessing/curse lasted about 2 weeks, because I’m regaining my appetite.

It was kind of nice not being hungry, but at the same time, I was worried and stressed that I wasn’t eating enough, especially with the number of miles I was running. I think I prefer being hungry, even though I now have to pay more attention to how much I eat. Before, I had to force myself to eat much of the time, which wasn’t a pleasant feeling.

On the flip side, now that I’ve regained my appetite, the cravings for food have come back. Yesterday, I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich so badly I almost took out Captain Caffeine in order to eat his (I think I could take him, especially if I am rabid with carb deprivation). Today, I wanted pancakes. And I still dream about chocolate chip cookies.

Captain Caffeine said yesterday, “How is blogging about this low carb thing making you less cranky? I don’t see a difference.”

His entire flashlight collection has been donated to Salvation Army today.
