The AN UNLIKELY VEGAN gang reporting in. We have noticed that both myself, and Irene, are having cravings and stuffing ourselves in response!
Something is going on!
I don't think it is actual hunger. I am feeling a need that my mind is interpreting as hunger, but it is more like a craving. I feel like shovelling food into my mouth by the truckload!
I think it is fat, or maybe salt, I am craving. I just ate almost a third of a cup of grated daiya "cheese" from the package while standing at the fridge door, and I am not really hungry.
(I asked Irene...) Is this what you were talking about last week, or are you actually hungry?
(Irene answered...) That is exactly what I had before. It was weird because I couldn't get enough. Evan says it's because our body is needing something we're not giving it....I think it's normal to crave something at times. I think back to pregnancy cravings...same thing! No rational explanation!
So, is this normal. I am thinking that the 21 Day support isn't enough. I had no problem at all during the first three weeks, but I have plateaued in weighloss, and am feeling the need to stuff my face. Help!
