Hello all =D Leigh, first off, this is an awesome idea kthnx.

And siiiiiiiiince I'm up at the asscrack of dawn here, I figure I'd make a post about my own apple, yo.

I work at a pizza shop, and while the vigorous activity of working in said shop is definitely good for my muscles and such, eating the food is not. And since I not only want, but need for the sake of the three year old sleeping in my bed at the moment, to get in shape, I figure I'll start cutting down on my intake of the greasy goodness that comes from Fox's.


Starting today, my goal is to not eat pizza/fast food/etc save for once a month, a treat if you will.

What blows is that we're supposed to go to Nicole's dad's shop today to have lunch. So I guess today will be my once. lol

I love cheese and I've cut it out of my diet for the most part because it has so much fat, but it's still like...mmm, who I wouldn't kill for some cheese!

Good luck :)

Oooooooo, you really shouldn't cut ALL cheese from your diet, but rather find healthier versions of the kind you like.

Most problems people have with foods of any kind are moderation issues. If you have your ounce of cheese you don't find yourself craving it, but you're not overloading yourself.

Remember hun, balance makes best diets. Hence why I cut out the culprit by taking out greasy food as opposed to saying absolutely no breaded chicken, fries, pizza and the like, because those can all be made in a much more healthy manner.

I actually am not too bad about eating a lot of junk. My problem is that I have no control. Like, if I do have sweets, I have to have a lot of them, so I tend to try to avoid them altogether.

It's kind of extreme, but it's the only way I know I'll stay on track.

Well avoiding sweets is a good thing, but you can't cut out something as nutritious as cheese. That's just definitely a bad idea, especially if you're hitting up the gym. Dairy actually gives you a lot of energy and it's good for maintaining bone density (which is crucial for people in the 21-26yr old range where the body starts to deteriorate)

(it's hilarious how much I know about nutrition and yet I still munch on the worst things)

Haha! I didn't say I cut out dairy! I drink plenty of milk and eat low-fat yogurt and take calcium supplements. There are plenty of ways to get the benefits of cheese without actually eating cheese. :)

I could never quit cheese, and since I never could and stuff I'm always trying to get other people (non-vegans of course) to not cut it out when diets call for the cut-away of most dairy. Because cheese rocks.

You can totally do it!

Going on four years ago now, me and a group of two friends decided to stop eating fast food altogether... We had seen Supersize Me and that was it, haha. So we went cold turkey. I had been eating ff like 10 times a week or something and I just stopped. We decided we were allowed to have it once a year.

I'm not going to lie-- there are times when I really crave McDonald's... But it tastes all that much better when we finally get to have it that year!

When Supersize Me came out, I actually researched the fast food industry and stuff. The worst things that come out of those places is the fried things. The hamburgers are essentially the same as ones that you would make at home in a pan save for a bit of sodium (unless, like me, you use seasonings lol). But anything fried is obviously coming out of a vat of essential lard and trans fat, plus they add all that salt.

That's why we refuse to have a deep fryer in our house, so that we have to bake our chicken and fries and stuff. ^.^

Oh, totally. You're completely right. Well fried foods and all the sugar that they put in everything, of course. But yeah. For that reason, we're allowed to eat Chik Fil'A. Mmm. You're right to boycott the deep fryer! See, you're already on your way :)
Nov. 14th, 2007 04:06 pm (UTC)
I've boycotted the fryer in my house for a while now, but sometimes at work I'm bad and I'll snack on something fried just because if I have very little of something, it's free. lol. I can't exactly just steal a slice of pizza, ya know?
Nov. 14th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
Free is good. And I completely understand. I have no willpower if there's food sitting in front of me :/.

But I know you're going to do it :)
