Down with Diets

At a very young age, my mom instilled in me the psychosis that is a dieting. It's counterproductive. You starve yourself half to death and eat food you don't enjoy. Most people don't have the discerning palates they think they do. Ground turkey when seasoned well is delicious. You also have to be cognizant it doesn't get as dark as beef and doesn't have the fat so you will have to add things to it (i.e. salsa/chicken broth/ketchup/worchestershire sauce depending on what you cook) to get the juicyness. It's surprisingly yummy.

We're so used to fried, fast foods that its hard to turn it off. Especially when places like WENDY'S are offering $1 gift certificates to everyone who buys a double melt. Bastard. Two patties, two kinds of chees and I think bacon. Chick-fil-A charges 20 cents extra for a whole wheat bun. McDonald's doesn't even sell baked potatoes! MADNESS!! MADNESS I SAY!! Why do they make it so expensive to eat healthily? Everyone who doesn't have time to cook everyday shouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg to eat well. Its just not right!!

It's also not right to eat rabbit food for 3 weeks and think you'll be able to keep up that madness. Lifestyle changes! I actually kind of hate that phrase because it sounds so easy but its obviously not. The point of this is down with diets. I hate them. Know my least fave? Low carb. IT IS NOT NORMAL TO EAT NOT A SINGLE CARB!! How do you have energy? IT IS NOT NORMAL TO EAT A MILLION PROTEINS!! I'm not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination. The lack of vegetables in my diet is appalling. But huge hunks of meat? Blech. I can't even eat steak. Partially because its so hard to get one cooked properly and also because it's just a hunk of meat on a plate. So caveman. Me eat red meat. No thanks. So here's to never dieting.

Fast food is a terrible, terrible dietary blight on our country. It worse in the midwest. NYC just banned transfats in all its retaurants. Fast food is cheap because its cheap to produce. Whats the lowest quality we can get away with and how do we keep it consistant from Pittsburgh to Manhattan to Tulsa to Tokyo?.

Read *fast food nation*, and watch *supersize me*.

i agree. i have a generally good diet situation. but that's to combat my fast food habit. i got my family to stop eating pork though. i dont really eat anything cuz its good for me. only cuz it tastes good.

ace... oh geez. you're one of those fast food conspiracy theorists? i refuse to watch or read those b/c i don't want to know how much it will kill me. my great-grandfather lived to be 95. i have some pretty great genes for him to live to that age in the early 1900s, late 1800s. i'll go to the dr. but i'm not going to kill myself to not eat fast food.

joy... i'll tear up a pig! hahahaha. i eat stuff b/c it tastes good too... and b/c rachael ray made it! hahahahhahaha. she rocks. and she's actually the one who turned me on to ground turkey. my mom had used it before but not like rach.

stace... hahahaha. yes small wonder, you may comment. but first you have to eat meat.

Stacie von Kutieboots said...

small wonder!!! LMAO! I like that!

i eat meat. i've been eating a rally burger everyday for the past two weeks. i hate that i don't have time to cook at home but whatever. word of the day is moderation. down with diets is right! as long as everything is done in moderation, there should be no problems.

my qualm with "super size me" is he ate that EVERYDAY. who does that??? maybe someone out there does eat mickey d's EVERYDAY but the masses don't. what was that book jameil? don't believe the hype.

"my qualm with "super size me" is he ate that EVERYDAY. who does that???"

Have you been out to the midwest lately?

The Very Reverend Ace Clemmons, Jr. said...

This may be a good time for me to come clean and say that i really have nothing against fast food, either. i just dont eat it, i live in NYC and i can eat *really* well *most* of the time without even trying.

I'm a hardcore Darwinist.

Stacie von Kutieboots said...

face Ace. i'm making the *face*.


when people die from heroin, it was from an OVERdose. key word, OVER.

moderation guys. even with your illegal drugs.














i was being extremely faceitous above. you know i mean fast food or ANY food should be eaten in moderation. shit, people can die from drinking too much water and that's as healthy as you can drink!

no, i haven't been to the midwest lately. i'm taking it by your comment that everyone in the midwest eats mcdonald's everyday...? super-sized?
