I'm sorry. I can't hack it.
Since January, when I went vegetarian, and then flexitarian (or lonely vegetarian as Honda termed it) I have gained 10 pounds.
I have tried upping my protein. I have eaten beans and lentils and beans and lentils and nuts.
I went on a diet. I counted calories. I cut out beer.
But I still craved sweets and snacks and cheese and chips. I would eat and eat and eat and still go to bed hungry.
I announced to my friend B that I was going on a body cleanse for a few days and only eating fruit and vegetables.
She told me not to be ridiculous, and said that maybe I should try eating fish or poultry again once a day.
So I did.
And lo! my cravings went away and my appetite returned to normal.
So, I'm sorry. It looks like I'm going back to eating fish or poultry once a day.
Unless anyone has any bright ideas.
