It's amazing what food can do to you. It inspires, nourishes, brings life and happiness to all who cook it and eat it. I never realized how much it would affect different aspects of my life.
I'm not stupid; I know that not eating is bad for health. But for the past week and a half, I lost my appetite completely for no apparent reason. Instead of forcing myself to eat, I decided to see what would happen.
Food doesn't just control your weight and physical health; it keeps you sane. Increasingly throughout the last few days I've become almost a different person. I feel constantly tired, but unable to sleep. Nervous about nothing and having weird random adrenaline rushes. It made me depressed...dark.... Angry.... Giddy....crazy.
Tonight I finally forced myself to eat an entire meal and I magically could think straight again. It's insane that I spent the last week trying to figure out what's wrong with my brain, and it turns out it's due to food. I know it seems like common sense, but it's definitely an eye opener if you try it yourself. It's scary. You become a different person.
