Food is an important part of a balanced diet. --Fran Lebowitz
My appetite is finally returning to normal. Usually I'm a bottomless pit, but that hasn't been the case for several weeks now. I've had to really make a conscious effort to eat frequently, and not just eat junk. I've been drinking more milk (whole milk of course!) and I'm sure that extra fat will do much to provide me with some extra padding for the winter.
I read somewhere that it is better to have several small meals throughout the day rather than a few big ones. I'm finding that this really works well for me. I used to prepare HUGE meals at home and take a gi-normous lunch with me to work. Now I choose to eat throughout the day instead of completely stuff my face three times a day. By doing this I don't become nearly as bloated as I used to, and the instances of having a "soup poop" are far less frequent. Of course, now that I'm on antibiotics my whole intestinal situation might get very out of whack but oh well.
Current snack: Sub Sandwich from the deli at Vons
Emotional weather: Clear skies
Health-o-Meter: 75% of baseline. (wheezy and tight)
Don't worry, I'd go the decaf route :)
