So my problem is this: Before I started working here, I was eating regular meals at home. Now I'm lucky if I'm able to cram half a biscuit in my mouth while I wait for the dish sanitizer to finish its load. And so I've replaced breakfast and lunch with coffee. I'm surrounded by coffee, and it's free. I don't need to leave the counter area to consume it, and I don't feel ravenous by the end of the day when I've been chugging coffee all day.
However, I can no longer eat more than a small meal per day. Every day I come home, eat a relatively small amount of food and feel like I'm about to explode. I feel like this until the next day. Today I ate one pancake and a side of grilled potatoes after work and I still feel full 5 hours later. I'm thirsty, but I feel too full to drink anything. To make matters worse, I'm not sickly and losing weight or anything- if anything, I've gained weight. WTF. I'm not drinking mocha cappuccinos. Just regular gourmet coffee, occasionally cream/sugar.
Is this ridiculously unhealthy? Is replacing meals with coffee a terrible thing to do? Has anyone else experienced this? Is something wrong with me?
Thanks for reading and comments~
