Something went terribly terribly wrong tonight! I don't know what is going on?!?! Maybe this bad pain flare has something to do with it, I don't know. Walking home from work I was dead on my feet so incredibly fatigued. And along with that a feeling of NEED, not a craving, but a NEED for animal protein, yes MEAT.
the likes of which I haven't felt since I began this WOE 6 months ago.
I looked in the fridge and decided even beans wouldn't do, so pulled out the only meat in the house, a tuna steak I have had in the freezer for many months and made myself tuna salad (with veganaise-blech, nasty stuff, tastes like Miracle Whip) and scarfed it down. And felt completely satisfied. For a few hours.
Then just a bit ago another NEED set in for something sugary sweet and crunchy and other than fruit the only thing sweet in the house that I have is honey. Tried a tablespoon of that, but nope that wasn't what I needed. Dug in the freezer and found some Mexican chocolate for making hot cocoa, and scarfed THAT down and felt completely satisfied.
What the heck is going on here????!!!! Hormones???? I almost never want chocolate, don't even like it very much, nor do I care much for other sweets. I've never kept candy or cookies or cake in the house.
Do I need B12???? I haven't started taking a supplement yet and I've been on this WOE for 6 months. Should I start? Could that have anything to do with my feeling of NEED for animal protein?
I ate plenty today and nothing different than any other day, just my usual lunch, breakfast, and a couple of snacks. However, I ate my lunch before noon because I was SOOO hungry, usually I don't eat til 1pm.
OK well, like I said these didn't seem to be cravings. I hope it was a one time deal lol but wow, I'm just shocked and confused
