primary butterflies

Day 11, thoughts.

Hi, My name is MeleKatherine, and I'm a bread and carbohydrate addict.

Hi, MeleKatherine

That's really one of the major things I've learned while on the cleanse: I crave bread. I have no real problems giving up meat, fats, or even sweets, but I miss bread very much. I haven't even had a real craving for sweets since I started; the snickers bite doesn't count, as it was just sitting there staring at me.

Even cheese isn't so hard, but I want noodles, and pasta, and soft bread, and dinner rolls.

My mom is of the opinion (she's a self-help fanatic, so she's read almost every article that has 'studies show...' in it) that we can become dependant or addicted to certain foods. I don't know if there's any real evidence to back that up, but I'm trying to get through the next 10 days and perhaps toss the bread monkey off my back. Or, if that's not possible, at least get him a little leash and a hat and an organ grinder so he can carry his own weight.
