The penny finally dropped earlier in the week when I was reading Paleobirds' thread on calorie counting + high fat/moderate protein. I've been one of the people who added all the fatty good stuff, didn't cut calories and then wondered why it wasn't working for me. Anyway.... I have a real taste for hard alcohol. I can drink it any time, anywhere and love it. A common late afternoon occurance for the husband and I is a minimum of two quite-strong rum and oj's before dinner. Last night, I mixed myself a lovely margarita....which earlier in the week I could toss back happily....and after a few sips it went down the sink because it just wasn't appealing. So husband made me the usual rum and oj. I passed the glass to him after three sips. Just not appealing. Anyone else ever experience this? I'm supposing it's a combination of sudden better nutrition and perhaps better hydration because I'm drinking a lot more water (in place of the sugary hot drinks I fill up on when it's cold) , and my body just doesn't need to search for what it needs in that booze. Whatever it is...I'll take it! Can only be good!
No announcement yet.
My odd reaction after a week....
