So much water retention today! I woke up this morning to a puffy face and sore eye sockets, the result of another pizza binge last night. Last week, I had completely gorged at a work drink event, where I estimate I ate the equivalent of two pizzas (twas one of my three binges). Last night, I only had the equivalent of one pizza, but I also had my fair share of the appetisers, so I’m sure I’m at least equal, if not more, on total food consumed.
Last night we dined at Crinitis, which I consider holds some authority in baking an authentic (and damn good) wood-fired pizza.
La piece de resistance!
My friend commented afterwards, “I’m not having pizza again for another 9 months, after I give birth to this pizza.” And later that night via text, “I’m suffering from pizza-o-phobia. No more pizza!!” Coming from a guy who ate less than me, I was less than impressed!
FYI I cured my water retention discomfort by eating a banana. The potassium contained in bananas help maintain the sodium balance in your body and in this way, helps to fight water retention. When I did the City2Surf this year, one of my friends said, “Bananas are a miracle fruit, I eat it for everything, long runs, diarrhea, constipation…” Add painful eye sockets to that list!
