View Full Version : hunger from, like... nowhere?

Today, after having my diet pretty much stabilized for 5 weeks, no caffeine and no refined sugar (only sugars that occur in blueberries), I was completely, ravenously hungry.
No reason. No really intense work yesterday or this A.M., no signs of illness.
I've had much smaller "blips" in the past 5 weeks, but today I think I could have picked a possum off the road and roasted it...
Anyone else have this experience, once, or from time to time? I'm really, really curious.

Go back 4 days in your food log and see if you had a "spike" of hunger, excitement, some kind of trigger-y food?
Was it stomach hunger or head, jones-ing-for-a-hit hunger?
Movement 3 days back too. Any huge demands or something different? Gambling? a rock star performance?
Any changes in drugs? prescription, of course.
5 weeks after stopping sugar and caffeine cold turkey, you are sitting duck for a hit of anything that spikes dopamine or beta-endorphin. Because receptors are still recovering. That can lead to that kind of hunger.

Got it. Had some white flour tortillas last night.
Clearly from today's experience, these are verboten.
(Noticed a minor sinus flare as well.)
Also, my ADD meds were off today.
Hard to say what kind of hunger it was. I don't think I'm sensitive enough yet to know. It felt... well, bodily - neither head nor stomach. Like you feel when some important component is missing.
Tomorrow wil be a better day.
Good call on 2 counts, Connie.
You are the queen of everything.
Blessings. Yep. That kind.

Awww KD. Your intuition will just get better and better as you learn these things. Scott wrote once that no one just "knows" about their body without a long time reading training logs and the same goes for this stuff.
White flour tortillas really do it to me too. There's a lot of flour in some of them things!
