Yesterday I ate too much and I’m paying the price

Yesterday was a nothing-special day. It wasn’t a holiday; I wasn’t invited to a party. It was a plain, old day and I don’t have a good reason for eating as much as I did. Worse than eating too much without a good reason, I ate too much stuff that didn’t even taste all that […]

You can overcome emotional eating

If I am frustrated, angry, bored, or happy, I am also hungry. It’s been this way for my whole life. I’ve learned how to eat in response to emotions without overeating.

The McDonald’s Diet! It McWorks! Lose Weight Eating Fast Food!

I don’t want to start a debate about the fast food industry. I’m well aware it has its detractors. I know that some view it as the scourge of the restaurant industry. Some of the people who hate fast food distrust the entire food industry as a whole. I know that there is a growing […]
