I've suddenly started craving junk food. Well, not suddenly. It's been a gradual process of having a little nibble of this and a taste of that. And "suddenly" I find myself walking right past 100 lbs of produce to stand in front of my pantry looking for something (chocolate cake? Cheetos? they aren't there- thank heavens!) to satisfy this surprising craving. It surprises me because up to this point I have had no cravings at all.
I've been confused by these cravings and a little disappointed in my body that it would "suddenly" trick me like this. But, one thing I have gained in this quest for health is the ability to be much more honest with myself. So I took a good long look at what was happening.
Could it be possible that a few little daily mouthfuls of sugary salty fat could create such strong cravings? Yes.
I want those cravings gone - banished back to 2009. I know how to do that - I have to walk that veggie line. Fortunately, I've only indulged in sugar, processed grains, and extra fat so I don't have to overcome meat/dairy/caffeine cravings too. It will take about 3 days for the cravings to disappear. And then it will be easy again.
I start today.
