Even though I don't feel hungry that often now, I am really enjoying my food when I do eat. This is because my palette is really clean, but also because my eating is now all about eating. I LOVE the chicken that I cooked. The strawberries that I have been eating are the best EVER!
And lest you should think that I just got a good batch of berries, or that I cook chicken with no fat like Emeril, try this one on: I am enjoying my saltines nearly as much as I have ever enjoyed any food substance. Dry saltines. The kind you eat when you are pregnant, in order to keep you from getting sick in the morning. Salty and crunchy. Yummy, scrumptious Saltines...seriously! And I really can't believe the mileage I get from just one. One saltine keeps be running for a long time!
A few days ago, I ate a really delicious orange. When I had finished my orange, I felt like having another. Wait a minute! I can have another one later, but right now, if I’m feeling hungry, I have to have something else. Even though I get 2 vegetables, 2 fruits, 2 starches, and 2 proteins per day, I can mix but I can't match. On this protocol, both exchanges of any one food type are not eaten at once. They have to be spread apart.
So I had to pause. What do I feel like having?
(stay tuned for Part 2...)
