I have a question about healthful eating?
I've been on a self-administered diet for about a year. ("Diet" in this case doesn't mean eating only a certain kind of food, but rather that I eat healthily and avoid excess fat/sugar.) But, uh, I'm wondering if I'm going a little far.
See, I haven't been eating as much as usual for the past few days. I tend to operate under the rule "Hunger is fat leaving the body," but I'm not starving myself or anything... I got a lot more exercise yesterday than I'm used to. I've been pretty cranky since then and my pants keep seeming to get bigger and I'm perpetually hungry even after a meal. So... am I doing something wrong, food-wise?
(I accidentally skipped breakfast; I had a peanut butter sandwich and apple for lunch; and a rice dish, some fruit, and corn and peas were my dinner. Isn't that balanced enough?)
As a postscript, I'm a vegetarian, but that's not related really... I've been off meat for at least four years. Could this be a protein issue or something?
Thanks for the help, guys!
