Changing Taste Buds, Cravings Oh My

I remember if I let my sometime busy days interfere with my meals blood sugar drops, or the headache.  I do not like the hunger headache.  Although I meal prep some days I am too busy to have that break and it is so easy  to eat what a Pharmaceutical rep  has brought in or the workplace has provided.

As I continue to focus on my 85/15 eating there are days temptation and those hangry (angry because you are hungry with a headache) pains hit and I want to say just give me anything.  The solution that has helped me is to just stop and drink 8-16 ounces of water, then  wait about 5 minutes.  My hunger decreases, the original thought “just give me anything” fades.  I take bites of my prepared food and feel better.

Now, truth is there are days after that water I have tried a bite of other foods. First the more you make better choices at eating the more you will taste the undesirable.  Now I can taste the extra oil, extra sodium will either burn my lips or dehydrate me, too much carbs my energy level takes a dive.

How do I manage that 15% well, that is usually on planned outings, celebrations and I do small portions.  Took me awhile to get to this point but I am but yes, yes sometimes I do go to 20%. I jut deal with it and do not repeat for a while at least.

Loving myself and you should love yourself as well.  To a week of a healthier US.
