Diet Rage and The B*tch Unleashed!
In the last 5 weeks I've learned that I get grumpy if I don't have red meat once a week. I simply become a not-nice person come Week 2 (not that I've ever claimed to be nice). And downright homicidal come Week 3 sans red meat.
It is apparently just how I'm made. Some people do fine without red meat EVER. Some people are fine as Vegetarians. Me? Not so much. I used to be a Vegetarian until I was pregnant with Dude. He changed all that. After his birth, I still ate meat, but usually poultry and only on occasion.
Something has radically changed with me in the past 9 years, 10 months and 16 days. Must have red meat OR ELSE!
No, no, definitely not hormone related. I pay pretty close attention to that.
Anyways, diet rage is very real. Some people become very angry when they're on a diet. Sometimes, it's as simple as lacking something in their diet. Other times, it's the simple act of dieting alone.
Perhaps the problem is simply the word "diet". For me, I'm not dieting. I've made a lifestyle change and am Eating Clean. But, once in a while I get crazy ideas that I don't really want or need red meat in my diet. And if it goes on too long, the B*tch is unleashed and she makes the TOM Wench look like a pussy cat!
How about you? Do you or have you ever suffered from diet rage? Is there something you simply cannot do without as part of your everyday diet?
