On hunger

I decided to eat no solids today, as a way of dealing with the stomach business, and have held to it quite well: a bowl of cereal for breakfast (because I don't take pills on an empty stomach and needed some aspirin), a cappuccino and croissant (luxuries don't count), a bowl of miso soup without tofu, a cup of tea and four biscuits. That quantity of food would get me to about 11 a.m. on a normal day.

Well, it's turned 8 p.m. and I am surprised to discover that I am not very much more hungry than I would usually be at this time after eating a hefty lunch. Given that I don't really miss eating for a day, perhaps I could and even should do this semi-regularly.

udge, be careful, not that you become semi-anorexic :)

interesting you should talk about this today, mate. i'm seriously thinking of spending a day a week fasting (or just liquids) ... i've heard that it can be quite a calming, meditative thing to do, quite apart from the detoxing effects ... not today, though ... *grins*

Hope you feel better after that fast.

Hey, how nice to see your face! it cracks me up how like your previous avatar you actually look - how extremely clever of you.

Thanks for the kind words, dear friends. As I said to Philip, I believe that the stomach problem derives from (a) my hiatus hernia and (b) too much stairclimbing too quickly. I should have warmed up to that with a few weeks of incremental fitness.

Antonia, I enjoy eating too much to become anorexic.

Jean, it was expensive too: all that plastic surgery...

Hmm, how did this work? I love my solids too much, I think.
