Ok, ok, ok....I know this is no discovery to MANY of you reading this...but for me it is a HUGE breakthrough.
I'm eating very healthy, nutritious, good for me foods and I am having to ADD things to my daily eating plan in order to get enough calories. WOW. In January I was still so addicted to processed foods that I was having to take things OFF my daily menu in order to stay UNDER the upper end of my calorie range. When did this shift happen???? I have NO idea! But there it is. I am LOVING each and every meal I eat. It is NOT a chore to stay on this plan because it is SO delicious and satisfying. I just finished having a morning snack/breakfast (I eat my light snack early and my breakfast at snack time) of a whole wheat tortilla, laughing cow (thanks Dana!!!), 2 egg whites, sauteed onions, and a broiled tilapia fillet. I know the fish sounds like a wierd addition but I had broiled 3 fillets this morning because they were thawed 2 days ago and I felt like I needed to get them cooked. So when I was making my burrito for breakfast it just seemed like something neat to try. I'm so glad I did! It was outstanding!!!
Anyway, once again I realize that all of you who have traveled this rode before me were absolutely right. When you switch to nutritionally dense foods the cravings DO go away...and the satisfaction is long lasting!
Thanks so much!!!
