Here we go! Another barrier to my diet restart! As the shops are being so crazy I can't get any of the foods I usually buy. Foods I know the calories of. In fact trying to get food is becoming such a problem now that I don't even know if I can get anything! So if there IS something I will have to take it but - as an example - if the only baked beans left on the shelf is a 450 calorie bean and not the less sugar 270 calorie tin I usually buy - then what choice do I have?
If I'm lucky I will have to eat meals that are more calories (or reduce quantities so I'm still hungry) or - lose weight by starving anyways because I can't get foods that I eat! Because everything I try to get is unavailable!
On top of that the few foods you can get are three times the price if you really really want them! So I have to let my kids go without or pay way more than I can afford? Not to mention the difficulty even getting in and out of the big shops!
AND on top of that trying to get food and deliver it to my elderly mother who lives alone. Who can hardly eat because she is sick all the time and is very limited in what foods she can keep down...
AND I can't get the usual food for my dog (or my mums two dogs)! Getting a different brand is supposed to upset their tummy if not switched slowly. But what choice do I have?
Its getting really stressful! Which again doesn't help with dieting! I don't understand.. Where are the new deliveries of food to shops? Have I got to spend two hours a day EVERY day - which means leaving the now-no-school kids at home even longer than just my working hours - Just to try to grab a few items that become available- every day???
Sorry I know I'm not the only one facing these issues! Its so frustrating! How are self-isolators getting food??
