Up until this weekend, my appetite has been pretty normal. As a Paleo eater, it wasn’t unusual to do an occasional IF (intermittent fast) just because I wasn’t hungry. Eating nutrient-dense foods tends to keep food volume consumption down and hunger at bay.
So I have found my sudden, ravenous hunger rather annoying. To make things worse, my body doesn’t seem to want to digest food properly, causing much distress. It’s enough to make anyone cranky.
So why is it that family members must tempt the beast by demanding the rest of what I am eating? Really. Whatever I have, they want – all of it. This could get dangerous! They took my eggs, sardines, dill pickles and mint chip (coconut milk) ice cream. I was shocked at their insistence and greed. Of course, they haven’t seen anything yet – at least my son hasn’t. Hubbs vaguely remembers what it was like when I was pregnant with said son nine years ago. And he still took my food. Oy.
I tell you, I almost cried when my son snatched the last of my mint chip “ice cream”. *sob* Geez, do I have to start hiding food now? Best not come to that… *ROAR!!*
