    Too bad the experiment didn't work for you, but I agree with Jac that recognizing early that it's not for you is a good thing. If it's interfering with normal function, it's not working.

    I have to wonder though, how long do you normally go without eating? As in, what is the normal spacing of your meals? I'm finding it not so bad on the tatos, but I normally tend to eat 2 meals daily, lunch and then dinner 5-8 hours later. Sometimes evening snacks if the meals were too small, but I can also fast all day with no trouble when I feel so inclined.

    Anyway, good effort, but coping comes first, for sure.

    Normal spacing depends entirely on my operating list for the day. Some days I can have breaky, lunch and dinner at normal times. Other days I get a morning snack and then go scrub up for 6 hours. That's what happened yesterday after a breakfast of 3 spuds. By the end of the case I felt faint I was so hungry.

    Well, I'm down 1.1kg (2.4lbs) this week. Maybe it's due to the couple of days of potatoes, who knows. Weight loss is always nice though, whatever the cause.

    My appetite feels very well controlled right now and I'm back to eating tons of fruit and dairy so maybe that's it. I dunno, but I feel well so I'm happy.

    Found a beautiful gluten and soy free loaf of bread at the farmers markets yesterday. Buckwheat, potato, rice flour based. It's delicious but makes my guts blow up like a balloon - dammit! Guess I can add buckwheat to the things that my body doesn't like.

    Ah well, bread's not all that great right?

    Ya. Who needs bread anyway?
    Bland. Dry.
    Only good for spreading stuff on.

    I have been spending a bit of time looking around the forum today after a hiatus of only looking at people's journals. Nice to see things a haven't really changed. The same people are bashing women, the same people are starting arguments, the same people are looking down their noses at anybody who has a differering opinion from theirs. Sigh....

    Anyway, things are good with me. I'm working insanely hard but I am now a fully fledged neurosurgery scrub nurse after a very quick crash course in very complex surgeries such as craniotomies and spinal fusions. There have been a couple of nurses leave and this has left a skill shortage which it was decided I could fill. All I can say is that it's lucky I learn fast and don't crumble under pressure! Last week I learned how to do a craniotomy, an anterior cervical disc replacement and a lateral approach lumbar fusion!! I'm now on the on-call roster which usually requires 2 years post-grad experience but which they are putting me on before my first year is finished. It's quite flattering although I know that the fast-track is mostly due to their staff shortages, still it's nice that they think I can handle it so early. I do love my job.
