Starches and Nausea

The people in my family tend to have stronger-than-your-average-bear reactions to anesthesia. Despite assurances from anesthesiologists that they are able to prevent the nausea following being knocked out, that's never been the case for me. So after my cataract surgery a few days ago, which required just a few minutes under the influence of propofol, I spent the next 36 hour experiencing waves of nausea.

And craving starches. Somehow that's what my body still wants, even after 6-1/2 years of mostly-starch-free eating.

So this week I had a baked potato with butter, and some dreamfield's with butter and cheeses. Not earth-shattering, and I doubt that I gained a single ounce from them. As I've said before, unless and until I choose to lose more weight, I can be a little more flexible, can have the occasional baked potato...

But the whole point is that I find it interesting that, even after all this time eating lowcarb, even though my body is perfectly in sync with its healthy diet of veggies, greens, meats, dairy, fats, nuts, and seeds nearly every day of its stomach still demands starch when it is churning?

Just an observation. :)
