Ham Sandwiches

#1
Hi Chaps,

I have been vegetarian for over 20 years now and apart from an occasional deviation (usually accidental - my mother-in-law uses lard in her baking and I was oblivious to what lard was for years!) during that time I have never knowingly eaten meat.

Well having been on a VCLD since last April I have developed an overwhelming urge to eat ham sandwiches!! - ham sandwiches with mustard on - I never eat mustard either.

This started about 2 weeks ago when I was making sandwiches for members of my family and it was all I could do to resist. This urge has continued almost every day since then and I am currently 'fighting' the good fight!! i.e there is ham in the fridge.

While I haven't given in I have noticed little flaws in my defences i.e. I am very choosy about the ham I buy - those indoors like a little fat on theirs and I would usually take account of this when buying the meat but since developing my little interest I have stopped buying fatty stuff and only buy the leanest. I have also started buying my favourite bread again (lovely nutty, brown granary) whereas before I would buy the mass produced stuff that they prefer!!!!!!!

Isn't that the oddest thing?!!

Alongside this I have also developed an amazing sweet tooth. Before doing the VCLD I would never opt to have pudding after dinner whereas now I am more obsessed with the desserts and puddings people choose after dinner than anything else - I even find myself trying to influence people in terms of what they choose!!!

This sweet tooth is also reflected in the fact that most of the packs I buy are sweet as opposed to savoury!!!

Is this my body craving food that it needs or am I going mad?! :eek: Or does it mean that when I finish this VCLD am I going to turn into a rib-crunching, cheesecake munching mess?

last year when I first tried a VLCD I craved tuna and cucumber sandwhiches! which I never eat hehe And I caved into one and totally didnt enjoy it ha ha remember the reasons why you are a veggie and also why your abstaining. It is really strange how our minds work but then again you are living of milkshakes he he xxx

:silly: That's really weird !!

Not had any of that myself - the smell of fish and chips or a bacon buttie makes me long for food, but they always did :D !!

Hope it goes soon .......:wave_cry:

I would really recommend wiping your nose before eating the sandwiches. Yucky yucky otherwise.

Anyway!! Put the s/wiches down!!

What wonderfully complex creatures we are :D.


Let's hope you maintain your desire for cottage cheese once you have reached your goal weight - that would simplify things somewhat, wouldn't it?!

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and thinking

"Oh Gawd, that cottage cheese is in the fridge...... I could just nip down now and have a little with a couple of those delicious oat cakes ......"

or

"Oh, I have had the day from hell today ........ I need some lettuce and I need it now ........................

or even

"I love a night at the movies ........ can't wait for that half box of tic tacs" ....

when I did CD first time round last April-July (SS) I used to wander round the supermarket for absolutely ages, finding things that I thought my hubby & son would enjoy (mostly very naughty and unneccesary :eek:) they loved it,but hubby soon started to put on the pound, and so after restarting CD again a week ago, I have been banned from doing their shopping because of feeding them up last time I wasn't allowed food :rolleyes:
I soooo miss toast & butter & jam :sigh:

That made me smile. I loved toast. Couldn't get enough. Been known to eat a whole loaf.

Now I can I don't fancy it and haven't had just toast and butter for ages:confused: Typical. Maybe tomorrow.

Thinking about food now. I'll have to get dressed and walk the dogs. This diet will wear their paws out...
