Vegetables taste like ass


So for me to regain a normal relationship to and with food again,  I need to eat in a very specific way.  My meal plan requires 3 weighed and measured meals per day.   No flour, no sugar or artificial sweeteners, nothing in between meals except for water.   The amounts of protein and vegetables are the same at every meal.

I cannot have starchy vegetables like potatoes, corn, squash, peas.   Rather it must be non-starchy veggies like spinach, green beans, broccoli, or asparagus for example.

Did I mention that I hate most non-starchy vegetables?

Also, in relapse I would binge on sugar, fat, starchy food combos in calorie amounts that would leave most people ready to hurl.

Why? It was never about eating for satiety anymore than the alcoholic was drinking for thirst.  It was for the effects.  The why of how it hit my brain and made everything right as rain? I’m not exactly sure. There is a science to it and it has to do with a neurotransmitter called dopamine being released after a huge binge of those high calorie high fat/sugar foods.  But I’m not a scientist.

All I know is that taking away yummy binge foods, causes not only a physical withdrawal but also a mental obsession about them.

My brain has had enough of a ride on the tasteless vegetable train of hell and it’s only been 3 days.

You’ll get used to the vegetables, they said. It’s good for you,  they said.  You’ll feel better in no time, they said.

“I’d pick binging on a big ass plate of Brussels sprouts over cake, said no one ever,” I said.

Time to pray again….

    You can do this! I know for me I had to figure out what foods caused me triggers and it was always sugary foods. The 3 day military diet is really a great help!

    The title made me laugh out loud! Might I add that trendy kale is like eating weeds??

    On a more serious note, you’ve got this. You just need to reprogram those brain cells a bit and you’ll be touting the merits of Brussels sprouts in no time. Hang tough my friend!

      It’s okay to laugh, my tongue needs a good bitch slap. I’m no snowflake. I need to get tougher if I want to win against the enemy of this addiction. Thanks for the tip. I’m going to try roasting these bad boys. Salt only (no oil) 👍🏼 Thank you for your support!!! ❤️

    You have been on my mind a lot so I have been trying to ‘find’ your blog for three days now…for whatever reason it wasn’t showing up on my reader, I even did a search for you on reader and it didn’t come back with anything??
    Maybe it was something on my end.
    Anyway, glad you didn’t disappear!
    I do love some (home grown) vegetables but store bought isn’t the same. Plus I just choke down an intake of greens — spinach, kale, or spirulina powder in a smoothies as I find that quickly gulping down nasty tasting things is easier than chewing them.
    Totally relate, though, as when I have tried paleo or other ‘no grain/sugar’ diets in the past I have struggled SO MUCH. I love starch and sugar. You are right, they must do something in my brain. I’m probably addicted as well. Ugh.

      My blog was down for a bit, definitely not on your end. I’m trying to change my palate but day-yum. It’s an uphill battle. Stay tuned to see who wins. Me or the food….

    I’m not even going to say “you got this!” “you can do it” This shit is H. A. R. D. as @#%& to get unaddicted to. I feel you.
