I keep hearing people saying their body is telling them they need protien....what exacatly does this feel like?
I'm sort of ravenous today but I'm not tired or anything. I think I am eating too much protien for the most part.

I feel hungry all the time when I'm in carb overload. The quick fix is to eat some protein, but I find that if I stick to whole foods over things like bread and pasta I rarely feel that way.

It's just a craving, I think. Sometimes I'm totally satisfied eating some toast and other times it has to be tofu scramble because I need that tofu rights nows. Whether or not I'm actually in need of protein for my body is kind of irrelevant. Maybe I do, but I probably won't drop dead if I don't.

Now another question....Agave syrup. I was avoiding it because I heard even though it is low glycemic index it still messes with blood sugar. I had some today could that be the issue?
And a third while I'm at it....I have had huge issues with a systemic yeast infection....brewers yeast is completely different and I can have it....right?

Do you normally have trouble with your blood sugar? If not, a little agave shouldn't be affecting you more than any other sugar. If you do, then probably.

I eat way too much sugar but I'm normally pretty stable I think.

Brewer's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisae, is different from Candida albicans, yes. Unless you're immunocompromised, it's quite unlikely you have a systemic yeast infection.

It sounds as though you might benefit from sticking to whole foods to keep you satisfied for longer though. Even using half white half whole wheat flour to bake is a start, and you can mix white and brown basmati or reach for things like millet, barley, bulgur, oats and quinoa. Popcorn is also a whole grain.

In general, it's hard to really screw up eating, even as a vegan, so long as you're eating enough food. All vegans should be sure they're getting a source of b12. Other than that*, everything else is just tweaking.


*The exception being any health condition that requires a bit more vigilance.
