I’ve recognized the fact that oftentimes when I am short with people or incredibly inpatient I am actually just really hungry. Hunger puts me in a bad mood all the time.
The thing I’ve never been able to deal with very well whenever I try to switch my eating habits is hunger. No one told me that I would be so hungry. Even with snacks and eating small meals several times a day I still get very hungry. And now that many of my favorite things are not an option I have to go hungry for a while until I can find something I should eat. So now I have to deal with my hanger. Maybe I’m naive but I didn’t realize giving up my favorite foods would require so much mental and emotional work. It’s like being in that Snickers commercial except I can only eat fruit.
