Day 5: Finally feeling well and energized again. The fibro-monster may win a few battles but I always win the war! I was planning on tracking my calories but that was a disaster– I’m not ready. Today my challenge was not giving in and eating everything I wanted. I skipped all the extras today. We went out to eat for lunch and I skipped the sweet potato fries. At dinner I skipped the bread and butter and had my shake. I was able to control my urge and psych my self up so I did not want or felt like I was missing out on anything, but will that always work?
Control Your Appetite with Sleep
When we’re exhausted, we crave everything in sight. Especially if it’s high in carbs and/or sugar. These foods give us comfort and energy. To squash the urge for fatty foods and get the energy you need, reach for a combo of complex carbs and protein. Think eggs and toast, celery and peanut butter, yogurt and whole grain cereal, or hummus and veggies. If you’re completely exhausted, go for high-fiber carbs. Think fruit, veggies, and whole grains.
How do you control your appetite?
Because I got by with a little help from my girlfriends, I want to help you get help from your girlfriends. As always, please feel free to share your thoughts and experiences.
