I have been quite strict with staying in the Zone for over a month now. I am in awe that I have had NO cravings at all since entering the Zone . . .until something went haywire on Sunday afternoon. I am now looking at my food diary to see if there is something I can do to prevent this in the future, but meanwhile what happened is I got ridiculously hungry!
I ate lunch, then a snack, then dinner all within a few hours, trying to get rid of the hunger pangs. Then I really went wild: I ate a chocolate bunny (2 carbs) and 2 small cookies! Being a loyal Zoner, I also ate 2 ounces of cheese to balance this out a bit. Finally, I felt OK.
My first thought was how awful I'd been. But then I had to laugh at myself! If this is a Zone binge, I'm all for it! In the past, a binge meant eating maybe a quart of ice cream AND a dozen cookies AND maybe a peanut butter sandwich if I wanted something "healthy". And those binges happened a lot more frequently than once a month!
Monday morning I was back to being in the Zone. I love being in the Zone!
