I don’t even try. I like sugar, salt, fat, empty carbs. This doesn’t mean I eat these with reckless abandonment, it just means that I am realistic about how much I’m willing to restrict my eating. It fits my lifestyle better to eat big meals not very often, with snacks if I need them. Last night, out drinking, I had a bacon cheese burger with fries at 10 pm. There was no way I was going to gag down anything but coffee this morning, so I packed up a half pb&j with some fruit, english peas, and nuts, and went for a hike for four hours. I ended up eating the sandwich bits, an apple, and a few peas. Then I had a Malaysian buffet around 1:30, for lunch. Dinner is crudites (radishes, carrots, bell pepper, celery), and a glass of half 1%/half chocolate soy milk. And I’ll probably lose a bit of weight today, maybe even enough to even out yesterday. I like to overeat sometimes. I like to eat greasy fried stuff sometimes. Regular meals aren’t always convenient. I used to try, but a conversation with a guy I was seeing made me think. He told me that I didn’t always have to eat as soon as I got hungry, I could just have a fat snack (as I was carrying so much excess). This weekend, talking to him, he said something about it being more convenient to eat a bunch at once, not have to worry about it for a while. Maybe neither of us have blood sugar issues because we both exercise so much. I don’t know. I just know that this seems to be the way I roll, so I’m going to work with it.
Anyway, found this excellent blog post:
And here’s a picture of my lunch spot today, not as spectacular as the last, but I love these woods. They are steep, remote, storm-damaged, and semi-rainforest like in their constant heavy fog.
