Diary of a Meat Eater: Day 8

This past week was rough. Fatigue plagued me like never before. Each piece of fruit gave me about 30 minutes of energy, then I deflated like a ruptured balloon. I walked from work to training to bed in a tired fog.

Today, I woke refreshed. Full of energy and hope. And full of cravings. I kept smelling foods I don’t even like that much, and it made my insides itch to taste them. White sauce. Scones. Granola bars. All mediocre things that I want.

The cravings should subside in about two weeks, or so I’m told. If anyone’s got tips on how to survive that long, send them this way.

Imagine me shipwrecked on a desert island, holding on to sanity by the skin of my teeth and the tip of a coconut.



  1. Oh, are you on some sort of crash diet? When I read about cravings, I started thinking of pregnancy. lol

    • I like to think of it as a re-structuring of my life. But sure, call it a crash diet. 😉

      Also, you’re the second person to think I’m pregnant in 24 hours. What does it mean?

  2. Still haven’t figured out why you are torturing your beautiful self! I wish I was there to pamper you!

    However, my tips (which may or may not be healthy and I take no personal responsibility for their outcome) are:

    (a) coffee makes me not hungry, and
    (b) Tylenol cold & flu makes me forget to eat entirely! (I think that’s because of the pseudo-epinephrine.)

    Anyway, I suppose neither of those could hurt for two weeks!

    • I think I might be drinking too much coffee for that to have an effect, but it’s worth a shot! 😉
