What IS eating normally, can someone tell me? I was on a training session at work today, so I was lunching with people I don’t normally pass the time of day with. I ended up with a towering plate of food, and the conversation went a little like this…
Person 1: “Have my bread, I’m doing the Atkins”
Person 2: “Oh, yes, have my fries – I’m doing no carbs this month – I don’t poop anymore but I’ve lost 6 lbs in 6 days!”
Person 3: “I had too many points yesterday so help yourself to my pudding”
After pretending for a while that no, no, no, that’s FAR too much food for me – I ate the whole lot! Yes I felt ill, yes I nearly fell asleep in the afternoon session, yes I’d do it again, and yes i probably have put on another pound (and whilst I’d love to say ‘and I don’t care’, unfortunately I do).
These are the issues I have…
One – as I definately do not look like I need feeding up, do these people think i’m some sort of human dustbin? If this food is SO terrible, why give it to me!!!?
Two – How can obsessiveness about food, even if it’s an obsession on how to restrict whole food groups, be healthy?
Three – Does this mean Mrs Chapman, my Home Ec. teacher at school shouldn’t have failed me for drawing my food group pyramid upsidedown?
