jaySKerrck Posted November 29, 2016 Share Posted November 29, 2016 So, after the orgy of Thanksgiving and the afterglow of leftovers, I have decided to reset my eating habits. I'm late 30s recently divorced & way too good at food. Being single for the first time in twelve years really threw my food habits into a tailspin - at first, I lost tons of weight and could barely eat, but then as 2016 progressed I was cooking again - and somehow along the way got super lazy and indulgent. I've always been a bit of a foodie - which is great as I love veggies and healthy foods just as much as I love ... CHEESE. Booze. Crème fraîche, crispy homemade tempura, crab-fried rice, bibimbap, ribs, ramen...MORE CHEESE... you get the picture. Sure, I make my own fermented veggies but pairing that with crispy pork belly and a boatload of toasted rice is not ideal. And I do love my pasta - homemade, store-bought, artisan, you name it! (Have I mentioned I cook? I'm not sure I have.) haven't been exactly slim over my adult life, but I'm not usually so...FAT. It's really undeniable. My emotional eating and cooking skills have combined into the perfect storm - I'm not just husky or sturdy now, I'm totally fat. As a gay man in LA let's just say that personality can only get you so far... (not that I'm dating right now anyways but...) The Whole30 thing is doable for me, I know - although cheese calls to me winsomely, delicately, like the song of a dream. Like sour cream. And the embrace of ramen. So here I go ... "hi" and "nice to meet you all" and waving hello and all that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
