I Don't Want To Master My Thighs Anymore

Can anyone tell me how I can order this book on Amazon this morning ...

... and then get this for lunch? And just to have all my bases covered, I even made sure to get diet coke for my Nutrasweet consumption.


Anyone?


I sometimes miss the days when we thought healthy eating was this:

And exercise was this:


Ah, a simpler time. Don't you sometimes feel like all our health knowledge is a double-edged sword?

I don't think I like knowing exactly what it is I am doing to my body as I enjoy my hot tasty french fries.

It allows me to reason too much: 'Let's see, what do I want for dinner tonight? Do I want inflamed arteries or an overworked pancreas?' 'I feel like a snack. Hmm, should I open that bag of breast cancer potato chips or go for the colon polyp salami? Decisions decisions.'

Knowledge is power and responsibility...and bor-ing.

Are you trying to imply that Wonder Bread isn't chock full o vitamins? Cause I got a gramma who will kick your ass.

Life is a terminal disease. Enjoy it!

I still eat Wonder Bread. Is that bad? ;)

And the thing is, the more we learn, the more things it turns out we were wrong about, which isn't exactly much motivation to follow prescribed diet outlines now, because someday those things will be bad for us, and we will have wasted our entire lives eating soy and broccoli.

Ok I lay in bed almost every night eating my fudge popsicle and looking at the very dusty treadmill thinking, I really need to start getting on that thing and walking. Maybe tomorrow. So far I have eaten tons of popsicles and not walked at all!!

colon polyp salami (!!!!) Oh, the images, the IMAGES!!!See, my strategy is to buy organic junk food. Then I don't feel half as guilty binging on it. Newman O's and Red Hot Blues? Created by Satan himself.

Are you telling me I can't shake the pounds away? Oh, Crap! My grandma used to have one of those! Ah, those were the days...when women thought that eating a plate of pasta and drinking a TAB, they could easily lose 30 lbs!

My dad has this saying like, "Studies have shown the only food that doesn't cause cancer is green peas."

It's so true. Coffee's bad for you. No, wait! Coffee is good for you! Alcohol is bad for you. Causes breast cancer. No, wait! Drink ONE drink a day to ward off colon cancer. Who can have just ONE? If you can, please tell me your secret. If I am aiming for just one beer, I will, 9 out of 10 times, drink 2. I'm sure processed foods are not good for us, and I am trying to cut a lot of that out. Pretty soon we'll hear that processed foods aren't so bad for us after all!

It is a nightmare anymore. If we listened to everything we read, we wouldn't be able to eat anything and would starve to death. I remember in the early 90's when they decided that warm food caused throat cancer - like people were going to start eating all of their food cold...

Where can I get me that rump shaker?All the cuisine in San Fran has left much to be desired on my derierre.(sp?)ps.... I think this is hiliarious because Tyson and I have been having an ongoing conversation about trans fat. I know. Sound like fun to you?

I agree with this SO much Lena. I sometimes stare into my cupboard and spin circles in my kitchen trying to find something I can eat that is low fat and healthy but yummy and ISN'T going to kill me. After 15 minutes or so I get angry and just give up. I go for the chips and soda. ~sigh~To much knowledge that always contradicts something else you have learned.

I'm just clinging to the studies that show one alcohol a day is good for your heart and dark chocolate is full of antioxidants. I really don't want any new info now.
