After elementary and my stage of eating chalk dust. The urge for powdery substances just went away. I had no desire for it throughout high school or college. All of a sudden when I hit my 20’s and became pregnant, the craving returned. All those years without it and bam, there I was in the local grocery purchasing a box of Argo Laundry starch. As soon as I approached the check out lane and placed it on the counter, the cashier first words were, “are you going to eat this”. Now what made her think that. It was my belly poking out to the counter. She then went on to say that her daughter ate baby powder while she was pregnant as if it healthier than the starch. My reaction was “baby powder yuck”
So throughout my 9 months I ate the Argo starch, ganged about 60 pounds, nevertheless, me and my baby were fine. I had no health issues and neither did my newborn. After giving birth, the 60 pounds melted off and I was back to my normal weight and guess what? The starch craving disappeared again. What in the world is going on. However it didn’t stay away for long, in my next post I will tell you when it decided to return.
