N, I just want to say that I empathize with you in regards to over thinking and obsessing when you're not feeling well. It's a very difficult mindset to get out of once you're already stuck, but I really think you should take Zach's advice. Throw a bunch of food in a pack and just get out of the house, go do something, call up some friends. Just find something to do to STOP THINKING about it. Or even just do the backpack thing so that you already have all your food in one place and don't have to make any decisions throughout the day. Just say, this is what I have so that's what I'm going to eat. At this point your mindset might be even more detrimental than what you're putting into your mouth.
Can I get some quick advice, Zachadoodle? My stomach has not been a happy camper the past few days (I think a lot of it is hormonal, actually, but I'll find out within the week if that is the case..) and so I want to take it easy today - doing mostly liquids (juice, broth), syrup, gelatin and eggs. Whenever I do this I'm always afraid I'm not getting enough to eat so do you think I should plan it out (and if so, how many calories, carbs, protein, etc should I be aiming for?) or should I just go with whatever I'm feeling? So far I've only had a cup of coffee w/ gelatin and sugar today. I'm getting hungry but I don't want to eat anything. It's starting to dawn on me that my energy crashes occur at pretty consistent intervals after meals and I'm on a super high from being fasted right now (same happened yesterday when I didn't eat breakfast) but I know that's not a solution. Arg. Anyway, <3
Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
