Since I ate late last night, I was not interested in food this morning at all, and when lunch time came, I could have eaten, but was still not too interested. I started feeling hungry around 3 p.m., but at that point decided to wait until dinner, which was at 7 pm. I was not suffering or anything.
By now, readers may be bored. They have seen it before. Dinner started with the large bowl of greens (salad and spinach). A scoop of brown rice on top. Then a typical salad of beans and raw vegetables. I also had a Japanese Sweet Potato and almost an punch of walnuts on top. I added some blueberries and strawberries for sweetness. It tasted great and I'm very satisfied. Does this type of eating seem fairly simple? It is, and the unavoidable consequence of such simplicity is health and good appearance. Sure, cake, ice cream, chips, soda, hot dogs, etc. seem appealing. But are they worth the price tag that comes with them. Not just for your personal health and appearance - but for the common good. Diabetes and heart disease etc. are going to bankrupt this nation if we do not do something.
Teaser for tomorrow
We are having a guest for dinner tomorrow. Farley is making her curried Chickpea dish. Actually, I think it is already in this blog elsewhere. But it is delicious, and we will get some good pics.
When I was fat and sick, the thought of missing breakfast and lunch would have been fearful. Now it is no big deal. I have talked a bit about Dr. Fuhrman's topic of toxic hunger in his revised "Eat To Live," and find it a very enlightening discussion. I like it because it goes beyond the theoretical and has a lot of useful ways in which you can recognize and overcome toxic hunger.
But an interest of mine is seeing how great minds approach the same idea from different angles. Jeff Novick and Dr. Lisle describe the same idea. Jeff Novick explained it well in one of his posts in his forum on the McDougall Discussion Board:
