Someone once told me that you crave what your body needs. Like if you’re craving bananas, your body is telling you you need more potassium. If you’re craving candy, you might need sugar. And if you crave Katy Perry music, you’re an idiot.
Anyhow, I don’t know how much truth there is to that whole thing but last night my body needed whatever is in Progresso clam chowder soup. In about a half hour, I had eaten two cans. By the end of my second helping, though, I kind of regretted my gluttony. I was way too full.
I grabbed one of the cans to see how much I had ingested. One can is 1 pound, 2.5 ounces. Yikes. I kind of got sick when I realized I had just shoved two-and-a-half pounds of soup into my system.
Apparently last night my body needed some modified corn starch. Or maybe it was the sodium phosphates. Whatever it was, I hope it’s happy.
