As expected, this isn’t a big deal yet. Â It’s 24 hours. Â In general, the two “big” thing I have to change from most of my day-to-day diet is leaving out dairy and grains. Â Since I’m Gluten sensitive, there are a lot of things I’m used to giving up… but also more and more that I can now substitute when I have cravings.
I’m listening to the companion book,Â It’s All About Food, at the same time which has been helpful.
I have two observations initially:
- I’m not specifically hungryÂ at any time, but myÂ tendency to be aÂ “snacker” (even healthy stuff) is noticeable. Â Therefore, my jaw/teeth are already sore from clenching a little in the absense of munching on stuff.
- At 9PM, I’m generally overcome with the need to eat something. Â It’s obvious to me that this isn’t because of any hunger pains, but rather habit. Â I’m just used to satisfying my cravings with something crunchy… like gluten free pretzels. Â Arg… I really want to crunch on something.
