I've been trying to quit my sugar addiction, but each time try, I always end up derailing miserably (today and yesterday I had a cheat so saddeningly SAD I won't even mention it here). I live with other people, so it's kind of hard to keep all... (more)

I think the more meat you eat, the less difficult it all becomes. The butcher's counter has become my candy shop window.

Yes I do love this as well. I am still surprised by people almost violently urging me to have some. What do they care?

Every day is a magnificent struggle against the desire to gorge on all manner of junk; peanut butter pancakes, childrens' cereals, etc. The majority of my thoughts are fantasies of ridiculously calorically-dense foods that aren't even appealing... (more)
