The other day I had a routine physical. It contained a urinalysis. The reason I shared that information is that I think mentioning a urinalysis is funny due to the movie "Fletch." Anyway, in preparation for this physical, I was supposed to fast for 8 - 12 hours beforehand and also abstain from eating sugary and fatty foods for an entire day prior to the tests. Now, I don't typically eat tons of sugary or fatty foods, but the second I told myself that I was not allowed to eat them, I craved them. For example, here is something that I would normally crave for dinner:
And suddenly, this is what I craved:
I don't even really like hot dogs! And aren't they mostly fat?
I also craved this:
I really don't crave ice cream very often, but I tell you what, the restriction of sweet stuff really caused me some serious cravings.
So hurry! Tell me that I'm not allowed to eat vegetables and grains!
