I went one week not craving any foods being LFRV. I did great. Ate loads of carbs. I was eating on average 2500 to 3000 Calories a day. Every day I was not working out. On average 3-5 days a week. I have a busy job so I'm constantly moving.
But today I wasn't satisfied. It's as if my body was missing something. But I already had close to 3000 calories intake for the day. Should I really be craving more calories?? Maybe it was fat. I hadn't had any fat for the week.
Well I gave in. I had low sodium tuna with almost a TBS of light mayo with celery seed and dill. I ate this with 2 plain rice cakes. I thought well maybe my brain needs what's in the fish. Maybe it's the b12. BUT I still wasn't satisfied. So I did what I really wish I didn't. I had another rice cake with a spoonful of peanut butter (not the natural stuff, the kind with oil, salt, and sugar...eek).
So maybe what I really needed to do was have some avocado. It's so hard to think straight sometimes. Too late now.
Well so many people say when you're craving the wrong foods it's because you are not eating enough calories from fruit. But I'm sure I did. I had 3000 calories from fruit. My exercise wasn't even that great. I played volleyball and burned calories at work.
What's going on? Why did I want the cooked food? Why was I craving tuna, mayo, peanut butter? I was even craving baked beans...I just didn't have them.
And will I blow up like a balloon?? I haven't had salt this whole week.
