So earlier this week, I was feeling very cranky and lightheaded in the late afternoons.... I decided that maybe I wasn't eating enough calories, so yesterday, because I was really hungry in the am, I decided to eat a little more.
I had toast with peanut butter and banana for breakfast, a hummus pita and miso soup with tofu for lunch, another bowl of miso soup for a snack, and shrimp and scallops with pasta and a wine butter sauce for dinner. The dinner was a little more exciting than what I usually eat, but the serving was small, and I put 2 TBS of butter in the sauce to feed six people, so I figured it wasn't that bad.
At the end of the day, I felt great, but I didn't end up adding up my calories until this morning.
Weirdly enough, when I added up the calories, it came out to less than I'd eaten the two previous days.
I don't know if it was just psychological, because I thought I was eating more, or whether I just didn't have such a hungry day.
