JD frozen B'fast Bowl, Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream, and about half a ground-up cow on bread with cheese. That's just last week.

More impactful now since the commute ride is shorter for the season.

This is probably a minority opinion, but food isn't evil.

ok ok that is true, but i have 3 options

1) blame me

2) blame the person who made the food

3) blame the food.


i don't feel like blaming my self today ( normally i would )

Blaming Amy ( the partner) would be bad for my heath

the food can't defend it's self

Sugar is evil, but then again, sugar isn't really food Anyway, I had cheesecake yesterday for my father-in-law's 89th birthday party. That was worth it, but the cheese puffs I ate while watching the Superbowl this evening only provided very short term satisfaction

This last week? Let me make a list:

Can of 7UP
Trader Joe's Butter Almond Dark Chocolate Cookies
Brownies
Chocolate Biscuits
Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Chocolate Bar
Ben & Jerry's Super New York Fudge Chunk Ice Cream

No wonder I'm not losing weight!

Understood. But when I started this crazy trip at 400 pounds I said the buck, err, the plate stops here. Blaming the food, or the people who make or advertise the food, is a tradition that goes back to the Garden of Eden. Eve and Adam ate of the Tree of Knowledge and when caught immediately blamed someone else. I thought I could learn from their mistake. :-)

Also, the lengths some people go to make food evil seemed excessive to me. One weight loss memoir I read described how the author thought of Little Debbie snack cakes as filled with maggots. I couldn't bring myself to think of food that way.

Very true, at a certain point i believe you do have to stop and say no and stick with it . Normally i am very well behaved in regards to food, but i do tend to think of some foods as evil cant help it . The worst food i had to change was having a bowl of fruit loops in the morning or two . These days i have porridge with chopped up apple and mango if it is in season.

Is it bad that i had to look up the Adam and Eve reference for the details any way, i agnostic for which i blame my mother and father ... back to the blaming

A

Pizza, only 3 pieces. A few of my wife's Italian meatballs...and still lost 3 lbs last week. I'm starting to get the hang of this "in moderation" thing.

Quesarrito. I just can't quit.

From a local place: they grill up a large quesadilla with a white/yellow cheese mix AND house-made garlic butter on the inside, then unfold it, fill it up with whatever burrito ingredients you like, and roll it up like a burrito. So it's a huge burrito, but the whole tortilla is coated on the inside with garlic butter and a thick layer of melted cheese.

I can't eat anything else that day (and don't want to anyway), but it's still too much. I know I shouldn't, but it's just so GOOD.

It's called Galaktoboureko, a traditional Greek "pie" with a custard like creme filling and smoldered with a light honey syrup...



...just don't ask how many pieces I had!

Saturday I had reindeer meat shredded into a sour cream sauce poured over mashed potatoes with lingonberry preserves on the side. At least the reindeer was low fat!

This weekend was killer. A pile of BBQ and sides on Saturday night with friends, and yesterday for the super bowl we did Buffalo Wings, Meatball Sliders, and Monkey Bread.... I'm going to be pedaling for days to make up for that back-sliding.

Sugar can be evil. That is why we created fake sugar. The ultimate partnership between man's creativity and nature: refined Stevia.

I did have one sugar binge last week. I bought a big brownie that had 370 calories, which is about 25% of my days calorie allotment. It was nummy. But I have to stay away or I won't get good nutrition and I'll end of with blood sugar out of whack.

I also have decided that I only eat vegetables out of duty.

How can you blame the food? It just sits there. It can have no effect on your weight unless you ingest it.

If they want to bombard me with false images of fit people eating their crap as a "reward" then I will associate them with greed and brainwashing. It's a form of mind control and I've conditioned myself to hate it.

well given the fact that I'm still trying to recover from the norovirus that I got at the tail end of last week, the layer dip I had while watching the superbowl did evil things to my already ravaged gi tract. The plus side of a nasty instestinal bug, on Saturday I was down 10 lbs from Sat of the previous week. If we don't think of what it took to get there or the fact that most of that was water weight and is coming back, that sounds almost good.

Sorry, advertising doesn't make you do anything you don't want to do. Faust wasn't made wicked by the Devil, the Devil merely led him where he wanted to go.
