I ate oranges and apples this morning (about ten fruits in all) as a good food combination. But my mouth was acidic afterwards…it felt strange and “sticky” if that’s the right word for it…
My body must be making up for all the times I refused to go to the bathroom when I was five (It took me away from my play time). To put it simply, the toilet is my best friend right now.
I craved sweets by 2:30pm and caved into my dark chocolate, and then two sugary granola bars. But I only had about 150 calories worth of those–the sweetness was overpowering. I did have a lot of dark chocolate beforehand though. I think that is a “healthier” choice over the granola bars.
Dinner was not good—more indulging involved. I started out with just a bowl of pineapple, thinking I wasn’t going to eat much, and then had two big salads. Afterward I craved sweets and grabbed two small bowls of yogurt with granola and banana to satisfy myself without going too far. I should’ve eaten just the banana. I felt worried about food combining and I felt like I was just messing it all up, so I went for whatever sweets sounded good.
