I couldn't think of three foods I wanted to eat. I couldn't think of even one I wanted an unlimited amount of! In fact, I had a hard time thinking of ANY food besides chicken, cheese, and strawberries (about the only things I've been eating since I started in on solid foods again). And that wasn't even fried chicken, it was boring, limp, grilled chicken strips. After much thought, I decided I would like a little baked potato. "A little", not an unlimited amount.
That made me realize that I couldn't even imagine eating a lot anymore. I mean that literally: I was unable to mentally picture eating more than a couple tiny bites of anything.
Even though this change is a good thing(???), I feel like I've been brainwashed against my will. How could I be unable to think of three things I'd like to eat? Especially since I was really hungry! I feel betrayed by... something. I knew the surgery would change my body, but I thought my brain would be safe. Even today, right now, posting, I can't think of a food I'd like to eat. It's 10:30 AM, I haven't had any breakfast and I'm hungry, yet I can't think of a single food item I'd like to have.
This is really scary. What other changes have happened to my brain that I don't know about?
