We want it fast, we want it fresh and we want it healthy. If we say YES to all these things, why are we (and when I say "we" I really mean "I") eating again after we have a salad for lunch?
With the new study that came out about diet soda actually causing us to gain weight, could it be that we SHOULD be eating all the wrong stuff, just in smaller portions?
Growing up in the late sixties and seventies, I have seen portion sizes change over the years. Bigger is thought to be better, more value for the money and then add that with the old school thinking of CLEAN YOUR PLATE, maybe that is where the obesity epidemic began.
As I write this I'm cooking up a pound of bacon. My grandson spent the night and he loves it in the morning, with crepes. The reason why he is as slim as slim can be is that he doesn't eat a whole pound, runs around all day and is almost 4 years old.
Now what am I planning on doing with the bacon? I'm going to have two slices with a two-egg omelet made with feta cheese and fresh chives. I'm also going to eat a slice of toast and have a glass of juice.
My experiment is to eat normal food...not diet food, for the next month and see what the scale says. I'm going to watch my portions, only snack with fruit or veggies and try VERY hard to not do my usual night binging.
What do you think?
