Food Challenge Day 6

Day 5 Reflection… Had an opportunity to talk about the week with Tom Fitzsimmons on Fitzsimmons and Flores…  we discussed psychological and physical effects….. psychological from the perspective that I am doing this by choice and have an “out” if I choose to end the challenge…. people that are truly hungry- and not by choice- do not  have the same option.

An additional psychological and physical effect is that I don’t believe it has been long enough for me to feel true hunger. Also, I am carrying a few extra pounds, and I don’t think my body needs food because it’s burning stored calories. Certainly I am not to the point where I am concerned where I will get my next meal. I think any feeling of hunger or cravings at this point is based on habits and not need. I can’t just grab something out of the cabinet whenever I feel like it.

Three opportunities to eat occurred as a result of professional or social situations- “community contributions” of which I took advantage.

I am going to continue the challenge, so I will need to shop today.
