I tried writing this post last night, on the eve of day 3. After staring at the blank screen for an hour I gave up. It's impossible to write on an empty stomach. It's hard even to think.
Who would've thought they'd be dehydrated when switching to a liquid diet with copious helpings of water?
For the last 3-4 last months I have been eating ‘ weirdly ’. I know my body well and I know that I love and function best when I have 3 meals a day that are packed and keep me full & energised for hours. I rarely snack & when I do it’s either that my meals weren’t full enough, or that I did extra activity. But snacking doesn’t work well with my digestion and overall state (I often feel more tired). Lately I’ve been eating weirdly in the sense that, I eat at pretty random hours (depending on my schedule of being out & about..), and most of the time not enough (ex. when I get home for lunch around 3pm, I tend to think I’ll have a small snack but then I get hungry and have around 3 other snacks and it doesn’t work well!). I’ve been eating lots of ‘easy’, ‘fast’ food that DO NOT nourish me properly ( like crackers & hummus; lattés, granola, dates.. as meals! ). I also find myself snacking when I’m working at the computer, out of pure habit. I wanted to see if this experience could help me get my normal hunger level back & solve this snacking issue .
By the way, just in case no one has told you it yet today: I love and appreciate you for who you are ❤️.

Generally speaking, if you look at a food label and sum up the values, what's left is water. One of my normal meals contains over a cup (
