Bread Cravings: Music and Moderation

A lot of diets restrict carbs, and those who love bread really feel it. Bread may have been eaten before without much thought, but after enough of an absence, many experience a fierce longing for it.

But a bit of bread can be enjoyed as a dessert treat.

Just think of it as you would think of whip cream or the cherry on a ice-cream Sunday. You wouldn't eat a tub of Cool-Whip, or jar of cherries (hopefully). Likewise, a bit of bread, eaten in moderation as a treat, tops off well that meal you just enjoyed.

When a Body Betrays Itself

Some addicts escape detection.

Some might even avoid betrayal by their friends and enemies.

But when your body cheats on itself, it also betrays itself.

Soon afterwards, it even consigns itself to the pains and consequences of its own addiction.

Your body will thank you today for your food drug, but tomorrow it will turn on you for the same food crime.

Serving Your (Sugar) Time

You can eat a lot of sugar if you want. You just have to spread it over a lot more time. The thinner, and the more evenly you spread it, the better.

Comic Prescription for a Peaceful Home

A man goes to the Doctor, worried about his wife’s temper.

The Doctor asks: “What’s the problem?”

The man says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until she either leaves the room or calms down.”

Two weeks later the man comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The man says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

The Doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick.”

PS. It works the other way too.

Guilt works fine if used in time

Guilt works best when activated before the point of no return on the diet violation that is being contemplated.  After the forbidden food has found its way to the fat cells, trotting out the guilt seldom slims the tummy.

Shrinking the Inner Monster

Sharing those abominable feelings with another human can help shrink them down to a less monstrous size. 

Coming to terms with the monster within is the first step in getting him out.

"Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man." Proverbs 30:2

What comes around can make you rounder

When the pie plate comes around, remember, that circumference will be added to your circumference.
