Short blog today.
What I really want to talk about today is food. And how I eat really well all the time.
The other day I was talking with a friend who also has her eating under control. She jokingly said to me. “It’s too bad you’re on a diet. I could never do what you do.” And then we laughed and laughed. Because we eat like queens.
I get that a lot. I could never do what you do. I could never be on a diet like you.
The other day I had bacon and eggs, coffee with milk and pineapple for breakfast, cabbage braised in butter, steamed broccoli and duck confit for lunch, and filet Mignon, and roasted butternut squash, a homemade sugar-free, grain-free spice cookie with sugar-free butter sesame frosting for dinner. That was all in one day.
It was not a cheat day. I don’t have cheat days. I could have that every day if I wanted. I eat food that I love every single day.
It occurs to me that some people who could “never” give up sugar, are talking about the high, not about the taste.
But I understand that if you think I’m on a “diet” you couldn’t do what you think I do.
“Diets” are deprivations. And they are meant to end once the goal is reached.
I don’t know anybody who could live in deprivation. Even if their life depended on it. I could never have kept my food under control for over 8 years on a “diet.” Even knowing that I’m an addict and it could kill me. For me, eating well is the best defense against eating the sugar that will certainly kill me.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go figure out what exquisite deliciousness I am going to make myself for lunch.
