As it so happens, on the occasional day, I wake up don't have much of an appetite at all. This is usually the case following a day where I eat more fat (mainly oil or nuts) than I normally do. It seems kind of like my body just trying to restore balance while it's still working on the slower digesting contents of the previous day's menu.
Today happened to be one of those days, where my normal hunger-drive was detoured. I found myself feeling like I had a bit of a brick in my stomach upon waking. The night prior, I had a carob/coconut/almond butter smoothie, which was really tasty, but much richer than anything I eat on a regular basis, and, upon waking, I realized why.
So, I drank a few liters of water throughout the morning, while I went about my routine. I bounced on the rebounder for about 30 minutes to get things moving. But, I actually had no appetite until around 3pm. And, at that point, citrus seemed in order, since we had four cases delivered that morning and there was an abundance.
So, I had about 40 sweet and juicy tangerines, tangelos and oranges for my main meal today. I juiced most of them, and ate a few slices while I was juicing. This came out to around 1500 calories, and a couple quarts of yummy juice. I consumed the orange goodness over the course of about an hour, while paying bills at the computer. Multi-tasking!
Eating a monomeal of fruit or fruit/veg juice can be very satiating and, for me, a good way to restore equilibrium and have enough energy to go about my day. After my mid-afternoon orange-fest, I decided to keep a cleansing and hydrating theme for the day, and just had about 60 oz of coconut water for "dinner," later in the evening.
Lastly, I made my best effort to get to bed earlier and get a good night's sleep, before launching into another busy day. Balance restored. :-)
