Day Corn: I'm All Ears

So, I took a day off from testing yesterday as I awakened with a migraine. Wheeee!

Weight yesterday 111.2

This morning's weight: 111.6. Go, bloat! I ate a bunch of salty chips yesterday, so I can account for that sudden uptick in teh weights. Woot!

Anyhow, I was fine this AM, so I decided to forge ahead with testing, but decided to test something useful, you know, NOT A JUNK FOOD. I first landed on citrus, but my oranges were moldy, so I went to corn. I downed a corn cake (like a rice cake, but corn) and then set off to pop corn, on the stove top, in corn oil. Nothing like overkill.

HOLY CRAP, IT WAS THE MOST EXCITING 5 MINUTES OF MY LIFE. Seriously, I was nearly drooling from the delicious, greasy aroma of popcorn. My apartment reeks of movie theatre, in a good way. I made 1/2 cup of corn, also known as: HOW THE HELL CAN I EAT ALL OF THIS? I forgot that corn takes up an immense amount of space.

After snorfling down a few small bowls of popcorn, the waiting began. 15 minutes in, no headache (woot!), but another, unfortunate issue arose. THE AGONY. OH, THE STOMACH CRAMPING AGONY. For the love of all that is holy, make it stop! The WOE. Seriously, not only have I spent all afternoon shuttling to and fro the bathroom like some little corn taxi, but I can literally feel the popcorn wending its way through my intestines.

So, note to self: yes, you can has corn. IF YOU WANT TO POOP.

Also, seriously, to anyone reading this blog, sorry you have to read about my gastrointestinal issues, hahaha. I wasn't expecting them to be quite so prevalent, but whatever, I'm here to report the truth, and I HAVE NO SHAME. So there's that.

  1. well, there is corn in A LOT of stuff. It's one of the hardest things to take out of the diet. Do you think it could have just beent he pop corn?
