I’m finding my “diet” remarkably tolerable. I’m still losing weight, albeit slowly, and enjoying what I eat. And aside from the weight loss, I’m eating better—lots of fruits and veggies, fewer simple carbohydrates. But I’m also noticing things that I hadn’t before. I’m noticing just how much everyone eats. Sure, it’s not like it isn’t obvious, when you see commercials for restaurant chains the the huge fat and sugar laden meals they serve. But just watching people out to eat or in the hospital cafeteria, seeing how they may eat an appetizer, main dish, sides, desert—meals that add up very quickly to a couple of thousand calories.
I will never be one of those judgmental people who scowl at other people’s food choices, but it is remarkable what you see when you open your eyes.
