Remember that post yesterday about how I ate as much salt and chocolate as I pleased right before and at the beginning of my period and it was going well, but I would need time to see if it kept going well?

My period's heavy today, as it normally is the second day. And I have no cramps. My cramps used to be worse than those of anyone else I've ever known. This has never happened before in my life. Could be the salt/chocolate combo. Could be that I no longer have anxiety. Could be that same dairy fat that killed my anxiety dead -- plenty of Greek yogurt and whole milk. Maybe it's the egg a day. Or a combination.

Maybe just maybe the vast majority of us have bodies that know what they're doing. I wish I'd listened more to mine and not food writers at The Guardian or wherethefuckever who parrot whatever propaganda's the in thing my whole life. I knew a lot of what they said was bunk, I never dieted or anything, and yet I still believed them about some things. Never again.

Eat food. Stuff you like. As much as you want.

Salt

So turns out it's not bad for us. (I've read more, and more recent, studies that back up what that Scientific American article says, but it's the most concise article I've found on it.) In fact, getting as little as some organizations recommend is probably very bad for most of us. Americans should be getting what we on average are.

Full fat plain Greek yogurt + honey + cocoa + vanilla + a smidge of salt = SO GOOD. Basically chocolate mousse in a minute. I added peppermint extract tonight. A little too much, as is easy to do with peppermint extract, but whatever it was still great.

I'm going to be talking about food a lot probably. Sorry, but being as cheerful as I was as a child solely from eating full-fat dairy has me, well, giddy. And somewhat obsessive.

My hypoglycemia or whatever it was is gone. Snuffed out. Not pining for the Fjords.

I've had temper problems my whole life when I got hungry and couldn't immediately eat. Now that I'm getting a lot more saturated fat, a bit more protein, a bit less carbohydrate, way less wheat, and more salt (within the "average American" range) -- I'm fine. I can be hungry for quite some time and just feel hungry, nothing more. No headache, no feeling out of control. I'm able to deal with crap much better generally. I had some computer problems a few days ago and was annoyed but very manageably so.

I'm also no longer Godzilla when I wake up in the morning. Nor does it take me a long time to drag myself out of bed. I wake up, I lie there for maybe 10 minutes, I get up. I'm a bit out of it but fine. I'll never be a morning person, but mornings are no longer a horrible ordeal for me and everyone foolish enough to interact with me.

I'm no longer cold all the time. When I last had this much energy, I was a teenager. I'm craving vegetables. Also my sweet tooth is diminished -- though if that ever disappears entirely, I'll start thinking I've been body-snatched.

Just because, I am browsing Valentine's Day recipes on allrecipes.com and giggling at them for a couple reasons.

1) Why would you cover filet mignon, an extremely expensive and delicious cut of meat, in a strong sauce? Strong sauces are for things that don't taste great otherwise. If you can't taste the filet mignon, why get filet mignon in the first place?
2)  What's with all the rich food? I have nothing against rich food, but it does make physical activity more difficult, and that's the last thing I would think one would want on Valentine's Day.
3) Why is there so much salmon? If it were oysters, I'd understand, but salmon? Is there a myth about salmon's aphrodisiac qualities that I haven't heard? Am I just not getting it because I hate salmon?
4) Turducken? Seriously?

Hot Ramen

I've been experimenting, trying to make a good, hot recipe based on very cheap ramen. Here's one I'm happy with.

I've got a little cold, so I've got hot and sour soup. Unfortunately, the Chinese takeout near us has the wimpiest hot and sour soup ever. So I decided to rev it up a bit, with 1/8 tsp ginger, 1/4 tsp white pepper, and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.

That was at least two times as much heat as was necessary or even tolerable for more than a few spoonfuls. But my sinuses are clear!

Content note: disordered eating, disability, awesome site I found

I happened upon this site a couple weeks ago: (She commented at The Fat Nutritionist, I liked her comment so I clicked her name.) Her site is about eating disorders and a system for recovering from them. This involves eating at least 2500 calories a day if you're a woman, preferably more.
