I call it the Anti-Salivate diet and it's sorta based on Pavlov's Dog theory.
Think about food- make food- attempt to eat food.
Blinding searing pain. Radiating from my inner ear and pulsing through my whole head...certainly more effective than a bell.
If the food actually enters my mouth watch out, that is where the real punishment begins.
There's not a number on the pain scale for what I feel; and that's with copious amounts of
My liver is loving it I'm sure.
Drugs I have to take (obviously) on an empty stomach. So if the cutting head pain wasn't enough to deter nutrition in any form entering my system the belly pains are a great follow up.
Psychologically it's really doing a number on me. Water seems to be the only thing I can have; but not too much. If I indulge a dull ache begins.
So the upside of having one of your main salivary glands partially removed is weight loss.
Take that Hollywood.
Because there has to be an upside; I'm really a glass is half full sort of girl.
