Ive been lieing on my bed thinking about the large casserole dish of pasta marinara in the fridge. Nobody else is that interested in it (should not have cooked it) but I know its totally YUM and Im having such a strong craving for a huge plate of it right now. It's got all the bad-girl food appeal I'm starting to miss...salty, carby, savoury, not largely consisting of vegetable matter, oily....delectably scent of garlic if I heat it....

This is my 4th day of my simple fruit, salad and vegie regime and so far Ive stuck to it really well! But I admit, a little boredom is starting to set in.

This isnt hunger. Im not hungry. This is pure old habit and mainly emotional craving.

Stay strong Carla, you can and will get through this...the best thing to do right away is one of two things....throw it away or freeze it immediately. Remember the saying about it going to "waist" if you succumb and eat it...don't wreck your great efforts Carla, you are doing really well!!

Well done Carla for being strong. Great idea for freezing it Ally. At least you have avoided those guilty feelings that you would have had if you had eaten it!!!

Thanks again everyone! It's just great having this support!

Re my comment about being bored, I meant I was bored in terms of the food. Ive always got plenty of things I can turn my attention to, otherwise. I suppose what I should start doing is looking up good vegetarian recipes and start getting inventive as well as exploring the use of different herbs and spices. I live in a very multi-cultural burb so shops abound with all kinds of weird and wonderful foody items I could experiment with!

This is also I suppose, part of the re-training for better eating habits all round!
