I am a little bit curious about something that’s been going on with me lately and i was wondering if anyone could offer me any insights.
I follow a fairly structured diet. I weigh and measure everything I eat, and I literally have the same things every day, not only for convenience and simplicity sake, but also because i love (ed) it.
I used to be thrilled to death about the chicken, rice and vegetables I was going to eat at supper time even though I literally had the same chicken , rice and vegetables 100 days in a row prior to that.
I would have cheat meals once a week, but I would happily return to my routine the next day, almost relieved.
NOW, however, I can’t seem to handle it anymore. I keep having cheat meals on a whim because i get anxiety about my boring ass suppers. WHICH may seem like a normal, human thing, but I am very OCD and very in control of these things, and having or doing anything unplanned is very unlike me. I also don’t understand why I loved my food for years and now i can’t stomach the thought of it.
It would be easy to say I’ve just had it for too long, and I am now understandably sick of it, but I have been loving healthy, bland foods for 7 or 8 years and never had a problem with it. It seems odd that my 9th year of healthy, happy eating would push me over the edge.
I also keep getting a weird taste in my mouth like my tongue keeps feeling burnt when I haven’t burnt it, so things don’t really taste the same to me anymore.
I was recently diagnosed with sub clinical hypothyroidism , but because I wasn’t overweight or having difficulty losing, the doctor decided medication wasn’t necessary. Could this be contributing to my issues ? I know that when I was very lean and eating a low carb diet, my thyroid acted up worse, but right now everything is fairly balanced, yet i still feel like i can’t handle my existence without eating excessive amounts of carbs.
IE: I feel dizzy and my cravings are overwhelming.
Any opinions are appreciated.
TLDR: I DONT WANT TO GET FAT, BUT I AM SO HUNGRY
