- cut back on chocolate.
Ugh. I don’t want to write about diet. So much myth and misunderstanding. Why do I think I need to cut back on chocolate? Because it’s extra calories I don’t need. I get plenty of food otherwise – food that has nutrients and vitamins and protein and all the stuff my body uses to keep itself alive and kicking. Also, most of the chocolate I eat is commercially made so it’s full of chemicals and preservatives and colorings and all sorts of weird things I can’t identify without Google’s help.
Of course, the second I say, “I need to eat less chocolate”, I start having horrible cravings for it. I have to have it. Then I end up eating even more than I would have if I hadn’t told myself to stop.
Maybe a compromise would work. I wonder what would happen if I allowed myself to eat chocolate, but only if it’s as unprocessed as possible? While I have no real proof, I suspect that all these processors (is that what you call the chemicals and additives in food?) are not helping my immune system any. So maybe that will work. Maybe I can trick my brain into thinking I’m still allowing it to have “the good stuff” so it won’t demand more and more and more junk food.
