Consumption conundrum

Well, I’m one week into my pre-surgery diet, which, as I mentioned before, consists of mainly protein shakes and other liquids. As you can expect, I’m pretty darn hungry. But something weird is happening at the same time. I don’t much feel like eating.

For example, I’m supposed to drink four protein shakes a day. I’ve only been having three. It’s not because they taste bad, or because they’re hard to make. It’s just because I don’t feel like having one in the evening.

Same with my little snacks. I’m supposed to have six snacks a day — things like yogurt, sugar-free Jello, and applesauce. I’ve only been eating four of these a day.

I have no idea why I have no inclination to eat. I don’t even know if it’s a psychological or physical thing.

I should point out that I’m drinking plenty of fluids, and that might have something to do with it. I’m definitely getting more than 64 ounces of water a day. And none of it is caffeinated or carbonated.
