Know what you’re trying to satisfy

Yesterday I ate waaay more food than I needed to because I felt like eating.

Weird thing is, I knew that I was pretty much full. I didn’t want more of any particular food, I just had this lurking idea that I should be eating.

In the spirit of doing whatever seems like a good idea and paying attention, I ate a bunch. Today I don’t want that much food, but I still feel like eating. What gives?

I decided to see if I had some micronutrient deficiencies. So I ate some raw frozen beef liver.

Much better now.

Anyway, both micro and macro nutrient deficiencies make me want to eat, but knowing what I’m trying to satisfy is helps a lot with just directly getting it.

Living in a body is interesting. I think I’ll have some more liver now.
