Cravings? - Page 5
YES! Ate a grapefruit yesterday and told my husband that I must be needing some more vitamin C because it seemed like the most delicious thing in the world in that moment!
Oh, that's nothing! I am a HUGE grapefruit fiend and have always eaten them regularly whenever I can- one to two a day. We have a TJ's in our town so I can get good organic grapefruit fairly cheap. But in my 1st trimester, I was going through four to six per day and CRAVING them like a dying man craves water. And they are, mostly, water! SO good for you!
DAMNIT! Now I want one! Or three!
I've had some aversions again lately, too. Back to getting icky from sugar and bread/chips/crackers/etc. which happens to work our great since I was trying to start a low carb low sugar diet. I did well last week and then not so good about it with the bday party and the superbowl but I am back to doing good today. I have been having more cheese and protein for cravings. They aren't really cravings but they keep my tummy happy anyway.
Yes, today is a "hollow day". It is not quite noon and I am through most of what I brought for lunch. Just some tomato soup left. And I even had steel cut oats for breakfast. Those usually fill me up until noon, but today I'd already had a banana smothered in PB and my sandwich by 11am. Guess I'll have to go find some extras somewhere...
I'm still into PB, and citrus as well (grapefruit in particular). Those and dairy products (cheese, sour cream, milk, yogurt) are all very appealing. No real "food aversions", but I seem to be going through some "eating aversion" days where I just don't find anything appealing, and then days like today where I just can't get "full". And I am drinking tons of water, so it isn't a "dehydrated but think you are hungry" scenario.
Today is kind of a hollow day for me too. I think it was because my body...ummm...got rid of...the bday party food and superbowl snacks and then wanted actual nutritious food today. I'm also really sleepy/tired today, maybe baby is growing again.
I have been drinking a lot of water too but I actually could just chew on crushed ice ALL DAY! Our fridge doesn't have an ice maker so I actually bought a bag of ice because I have been going through it so fast.
Oh yeah, and I am wanting brownies this afternoon too. So if someone could make that happen that would be great. Maybe I can convince hubby to pick me up just 1 brownie somewhere so I don't eat a whole pan.
