Today is Thursday. The 4th full day without any meat. I'm sure it's by far the longest stretch of doing so in my whole life. *maybe* i've gone a whole day without eating meat once.. maybe. But four days is nothing. But I felt it was worth updating anyway.
The first couple days I didn't think anything of it. Just started eating different foods. Yesterday, day three, it hit me. I wanted meat. Maybe it's all mental, but I also wasn't feeling that well. Not sick, but weak. I talked to Kat and she asked what it is I have been eating. Apparently the technique of replacing meat with tomatoes isn't going to work and explains my slight fatigue. I currently have no protein in my diet and haven't had any for days. I feel a little worse than I did yesterday, and I got a good night sleep and everything so I can only attribute it to that. So it looks like I need to remedy this situation.
To go along with whatever it was I started feeling yesterday I also had my first meat craving. Argh. I wanted taco bell, I wanted wendys, I wanted everything. It hit out of nowhere. But I won't cave. Oh no. My guess the craving is because my body is pissed and requires something I refuse to put in it. Anyone who said "I felt better the first week after removing meat from my diet" is lying. They're a pretencious bastard who will try to make you feel bad for eating delicious murdered animals. Don't listen to them. mmmmm... murder. Went to dinner with Kat last night to Noodles & Company. Awesome. I think i'll eat there a lot. Most everything is without meat, but you add whatever meat you want to it. I had a delicious thing that I didn't even know what it was and I didn't even miss the meat.
My fear is by the time I think I'm done with the experiment and I should eat meat again... I won't want to. Oh god, what am I doing?
