Two weeks ago, my husband decided he was no longer consuming cow, chicken or turkey. Why? He said he needed more brain food.
Okay, no hamburgers or steak. I was heartbroken. I’m from the wild west where we eat our New York Strips and are damn proud of it. But, being the supporting, loving wife that I am, I decided to sacrifice eating red meat.
When I was younger and gave up red meat, I became really sick and thin. Now that I am older, who knows? I still need to loose baby weight, so I am willing to give red meat again.
Then I discovered he was not consuming milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs or any dairy products. Coming from a man who lived on cheese I was shocked.
Shocked I tell you.
We’ve been drinking soy milk for two weeks. The smell gags me and I don’t think it has any taste.
I will not give up cheese, yogurt, turkey or chicken. I need some meat and substance when I eat. Thankfully, fish and seafood remain on the menu.
I love veggies! But eating a majority of vegetables leaves my tummy grumbling for more.
Kettle potato chips… here I come. Mama needs to eat.
This diet is leaving me exhausted and starving. I have a never ending headache and snap at any and every thing. My honey says my body is detoxing. I think I’m being tortured.
I am a competitor and never quit. Maybe my body is getting used to this. If this diet is better for my brain and body, I will keep on it.
