How to magnetize a baby, cheese addiction and week 3 weigh in
Things are going awfully well…
I’m eating lots of food and not obsessing with every single calorie (although I have a rough idea to ensure I eat enough which for me is 2000 cals ish )..
This week I lost 4lb. That makes 11lb since January 2nd. Overall, since 60 Day Fitness Challenge 1 started I’ve lost 41 lb. I’m happy with that!
I pretty much stopped craving most junk/processed foods and meat a couple of weeks into turning vegan and although I still love the smell of anything-that-once-had-a-pulse cooking, the thing I miss the most and still crave on occasions is cheese.
Why is this? Why do I still NEARLY put a cube of cheese in my mouth when making a meal for my daughter that contains cheese and why do I still remember those cheese highs with great fondness?
I began to do research on this… what was it about cheese? To me, pre-vegan, it was my biggest trigger food, I was well and truly addicted to it.
Who do I turn to when I need to find out scientifically researched and proven information to do with food and our bodies? Dr Neal Barnard of course! The one man on TV, is beyond a shadow of a doubt, a truthful and interesting man, passionate about sharing the information he knows..
This is one of the most fascinating lectures I’ve listened to about food and it solved my anxiety about why I had been so addicted to cheese..
And it starts with “How to magnetize a baby”…
