Did you know lack of leptin makes you hungry? Leptin is a hormone that your body produces while you sleep. So, when my dog woke me up at 2:30 this morning and I couldn’t get back to sleep for a couple hours, I went out into the world with a severe lack of leptin and a deep, personal, heartfelt desire for a muffin. I felt like I both needed and deserved a muffin, that it was my right as a human being, as a woman, and as an American. However, I was able to keep focus on my goal for this month: adhering to the Whole30 program despite the enormous injustice of muffin lackage. The day is not over yet, but I feel like I can make it one more day. And I’ll get to bed early tonight.
