quite a few days last week, i only got around to eating once. my b/f assumed i was eating 3 meals just like him, so commented on how much i'd eaten at dinner, lol. he was shocked to realize how infrequently i'd been eating, and now laughs that i eat like a snake. and yeah, whether it's once or twice a day, it feels like A LOT of food and there is zero thought of needing anything in-between.

The most telling thing I ever saw in myself was when I started eating Primal and devoured a whole chicken. I figured out I was so starved for protein and fat,
that I needed a whole damn chicken. I felt great. Now when I crave a whole
food, I let myself eat it. It's not like binging on candy was for me. I used to eat whole bags of snickers.... there was a weird urgency to it, and it never really waned.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
