Not even this looks as good as it should :(
Lately, I have had the strangest appetite. Before diabetes, I was always hungry for something or the other, and typically that something (or the other) was a high-fat, sugary (vegan) baked good. At other times, I wanted tacos/pizza/spaghetti/etc., too, but that was a different sort of craving. These cravings of mine stayed with me after my diabetes diagnosis, too... That is, until a week or so ago.
I've been struggling to have a real desire to eat anything put before me. I feel vaguely reminiscent of hungry here and there, and I do force myself to eat this or that, but I don't quite enjoy it or want it. I know I should eat- even right now, I know, I should be eating something- but nothing appeals to me, either physically or mentally. Heck- if a vegan, calorie and carb and fat free peanut-butter chocolate cake were set in front of me at the moment, I don't think I'd want it. I'd toy with the idea in my head, but I wouldn't really have a physiological response to it.
This may seem like it's not that big of a deal, and in a lot of ways, it is not. It gets a little upsetting and/or dangerous, however, when I have hypoglycemia, just finished exercising (which I am still doing consistently) or when its meal-making time and I can't make up my mind as to what I want to begin to prepare.
I think I'm burnt out on calories, carbs, fat, and the rest.
