I would not say I am a big eater. I do not eat for the sake of eating and will skip eating if I’m preoccupied with something. Food, has never really been a problem for me, in the sense of calorie counting, or taboos. Lately, if I can’t find a Kroger’s manager special, on meat and milk (if you go late at night they have 8pc chicken for $2.50!) I eat McDonald’s. I know. I know, and yes I have seen Super Size Me and it is just as scary as everything else they tell you everyday.
Everyday for the past month, for the most part I have ordered and consumed in this order, one hot fudge sundae, one McDouble, one side salad with ranch dressing, and one McChicken. All of these are on the dollar menu. I feel great! I still do my push-ups, pull-ups, run around a piece and I’m gaining/losing weight! Am I clogging my pipes? Do I have a tape worm? I don’t think so and I know me, this McDonald’s thing is a kick. Even in eating those four items I haven’t attained my daily sitting on your butt intake.
It’s true that there is alot of chemicals and crap in processed food, mostly preservative, but when you got 350 million people to feed and your boss says, “make more bricks”. I personally think that the body is smart enough to keep what it needs and s*** what it doesn’t. Some people, who eat salads everyday, or fast and are still obese cause their body to hang on to fat thinking its winter. Muscle will always melt fat like butter on a hot plate.
Look at all the Animals! They eat grass, oats, meat, healthy stuff right? Not, too mention the ridiculous strength of animals, all of which have no gym membership. How long do they live? For the most part animals don’t live very long. Even animals that don’t die by violence from within or out, who are sheltered in zoos, and protected from harsh conditions. For the last hundred years, people have been consuming poison of some kind or another and living longer, doing less.
Don’t eat eggs! Don’t drink milk, unless its organic. O.K. now its safe to eat eggs! When I was a kid, in the 80’s watching T.V. you never heard about cholesterol or drug side effects or this diet etc. Sales! It’s everywhere. Even the body can be used as a marketplace. Walking into a grocery store is like being solicited by thousands of salesmen. There are so many options, what do you choose? For me the answer is less than more.
I guess it’s all part of the machine. I’m not saying that one thing is better than another, but i hate too see people sold. Your body and mind is the only thing you got at the end of the day and you should consider what you put in them. It just seems like people worry about diet too much. As always, I could be wrong. I could be a fat gram away from my apocalypse. As with anything, moderation.
