I have been SO hungry today. I was quite hungry yesterday until dinner, too. I am not used to feeling so hungry. I've been eating relatively low carb with very few grains for awhile, but the last 3 days I allowed more carbs into my diet as long as my calorie count was within the budget. And now the hunger is back. Like right now. It makes NO sense. Today I have eaten:
Breakfast smoothie (Greek yogurt, 2 oz pomegranate juice, frozen berries, 1/2 banana)
1 small peach
a small carrot and a few sugar snap peas
unsweetened iced coffee w/half and half
2 eggs over easy
2 slices thin bacon
1 small slice of leftover pizza
1 slice of low fat cheese
Total so far: 779 calories, 44 g protein, 88 g carbs, 29 g fat (33% fat)
It is only 2pm and I am so hungry! My stomach feels empty and growly. I am drinking lots of water, but feel like I need a whole big meal. I wonder if it is the extra carbs (sugar in all the fruits, refined flour in the pizza crust). Or maybe it is just PMS, hard to tell. I have not been this hungry in a long time. I feel like a bottomless pit.
I don't really have a dinner plan except to use up that spinach I mentioned the other day (but didn't ever make that salad). Will make sure I get plenty of protein, too.
