So it seems the weird, buzzing feeling in my head that accompanied my constant hunger during the first four days of Detox Week has gone away. I didn’t notice it was gone because, um, it wasn’t there, but then I thought about it this morning and, well, noticed its absence. I’m still a bit hungry most of the time, but not as noticeably so as the first half of this 10-day experiment. Which, again, may be good, and may be bad. It may mean my body’s adjusting to the reduced calorie consumption; it may just mean that psychologically I’m adjusting to it. I don’t know. I still am eating with the same frequency as I normally do, but the food is less calorie-rich and not full of extra carbs, sugars, etc.
Of course, there were fresh-baked cookies and pizza at the little Rock Band party I attended last night, mocking me with their respective sugary and cheesy tastiness. I just drank water. And played Rock Band sober for perhaps the first time ever. And … it was still fun, and I still danced around like a fool and made silly RAWK faces anyway. Go figure.
I have a mess of work to do today, including this lengthy music feature I’ve been putting off, next week’s Utopian strips and some final assembly work on the first issue of Omega Comics Presents. And maybe some final Christmas shopping. We’ll see. In the meantime, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Yesterday’s food selections:
- Breakfast: 1 banana + 1 cup “Dynamo” juice blend
- Morning snack: Mixed raw nuts
- Lunch: 1 half-order traditional “pizza” from Go Raw Cafe (almond “cheese,” basil pesto and marinara sauce with veggies and walnut “sausage” on raw, sprouted buckwheat crust)
- Dinner: Two small, while potatoes, boiled, and chopped carrots, celery and broccoli, steamed in homemade vegetable stock
- Late-night snack: 1 piece “fudge” from Go Raw (rolled oats, honey, sunflower seeds, carob)
- Beverages: A lot of water, plus an ounce or so of Naked “Super Food”
