Years Past: Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 8 (12/02) of Back to High Carb Intuitive Eating

Day 8 – 12/02

Instagram | Original MWL Post

I had very little appetite today, which made sense given how much I ate last night. A fun side effect of that Indian buffet: I woke up holding onto so much water weight that my eyes were swollen… I guess that’s what happens when you eat a ton of sodium after eating low-sodium for awhile.

The cravings are pretty much gone, so I think I’m finally settling into a MWL groove–the only things I really wanted today were potatoes and veggies! And there was a reception in my lab’s building after a talk (which I attended, I’m not a total freeloader!) so I nabbed 2 plates of leftover fruit while grinding away at my experiment for 7 hours, I felt like a very lucky grad student 😛

Exercise: walked 4 miles


  • Small sweet potato (~100g)
  • Coldbrew coffee with soymilk


  • 5 small red potatoes (~400g)
  • 2 bunches of grapes, a few strawberries


  • Celery and barbecue sauce, garlic grilled mushrooms
  • Balsamic roasted carrots, broccoli, and red onion
  • Sweet potato hot chocolate
