Recently, things have gotten tight financially because of the “training wage” I have earning with my new job for the last 2 months. The trail mix and burgers I have become accustomed to have had to give way to processed turkey and beef bologna sandwich slices.
Besides the obvious avoids in the processed meats another irritating side effect is the hunger created because I am not giving my body the necessary protein it needs or is accustomed to. I’m an O Non Secretor and I require more protein to feel satisfied. The turkey only keeps the hunger at bay for an hour and I don’t function well when I’m hungry and unsatisfied. I eat a lot more and have cravings for other avoids because of it.
Luckily this is only a temporary phenomenon for me. For those of you out there that might not be following ERFYT as closely as you need to, this might give you some insight as to why you are always hungry and or cannot lose weight or be satisfied after meals. Your body knows what it needs and if you don’t give it what it wants, it will find alternative ways to make up the difference at your overall (health) expense.
