my daughter (3,5 years) came with her father back from the grandparents. i asked what they gave her to eat: french fries and after that 'meal' a fruitsalad and then in the afternoon bread. it was enough to drive you mad, i was almost throwing all the plates on the ground when i heard that (but i knew that would not the problem so i did not).
after that bad news i was craving avocados. and it was not because i was not carbed up: i had eaten 28 bananas and 25 dates and so far i drunk 2 liters of water (now it is 6pm).
i get not depressed from my food but from everybody around me who give my daughter such SAD-food and i can not help it. i talked 100 of times about food with my husband, asked him several times to read 80/10/10 of DR Graham, i talked with the grandparents: no result ...
i love so much my daughter and she is a lot of times sick (i only give her A LOT OF FRUITS and veggies but the husband is always there with his bread for her)
and i cannot do anything or can i? please help me
Obviously you had not eaten enough carbs the days before AND/OR you have been going to bed too late for your glycogen replenishment. ALSO we crave what we have been eating recently and that is high calorie. So if we are in a stressful situation and healthy then we will crave the heaviest food we have most recently eaten. For raw fooders thats usually something fatty like raw gourmet.
I know people say you dont need to sleep much but thats just bollocks. If one wants peak endocrine health then early nights gotta be on the cards.
You can put in enough carb cals but if you dont get the sleep so your body can store the glycogen then your gonna have a fuel tank with holes in it and thats gonna mean the cells shout 'HEY!! Just give us anything man! we are STARVING!!!'.
Can take 36hours for glycogen to be restored IF we are eating enough, drinking enough and getting to bed near sun down. All of which are so simple but REALLY hard to do in this 'go go go go' distraction distraction lifestyle.
What do they say about families? God only gives us things we can handle...
I find sport a terrific way to release pent up frustration. Ive won 2 5k races in the last 7 days. Both times we have around 100 people. Im aiming to win again tomorrow. I don't get angry, I just push harder. ;)
thank you for that uplifting info. it does make sense to me about the glycogeen, i did not hear that before.
good tip "I don't get angry, I just push harder". will try that too;)
Last night in boxing I was sparring a 374lb 6'5 fighter with a lot more experience than my self. I got knocked to the canvas repeatedly and just had to keep my cool and keep my focus. That worked and I started moving around the ring instead of getting stuck in the corner and smothered with king hits.
Sometimes we need a few 'hits' to re-establish our focus.
