Dear Fickle Band (a.k.a. Allie from Allergan),
I can't understand why you don't like food after exercise. After several failed attempts to eat after running group, I've decided you just WILL NOT allow me to eat after I've gone running. At first, I just wasn't hungry so I didn't try. Then, hunger struck on days 4 and 5. You've now ruined my favorite yogurt and my "pastaless lasagna" meal for me for a while, after spending 30-45 minutes trying to yack up 2-3 bites of food.
It isn't fun.
So what am I supposed to do? I can't eat several hours before running, or I get stomach cramps, and if I can't eat after running, that means I've missed a meal and a snack. This isn't good for my metabolism.
I have dealt with your fickle-ness over stress, causing my hair to fall out, the fact that you HATE bread and crackers, throwing up that cake sample in my work parking lot yesterday. I gave up soda and beer for you. Can't you just allow me some yogurt a few hours after a run? Pretty please. At least take it into consideration, because I'm a stubborn taurus, and I know at some point I'm going to try this post-exercise eating again, and I'd like it to go better next time.
Your frustrated body host,
