Starch Solution, Years Past: Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 2 of Higher Carb Starch Solution: April 15th

Day 2/28

For the last few days, whenever I go to bed, I crave oatmeal for the next morning. Then when I wake up, I crave pancakes.

So I make pancakes.

It’s a weird phenomenon, though–I wonder what’s going on in my body at nighttime versus morning that makes oatmeal versus pancakes so appealing?

In other news, I ate half a (large) loaf of sourdough for part 1 of my lunch. No regrets! And even though I woke up with some residual soreness, I wouldn’t be stopped this time–I went for my run!
