"That's Nutrition!"

Friday, April 2, 2010 at 11:33 AM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
I'll never forget the first time I ever heard Bill Cosby tell the story of the Chocolate Cake. He was supposed to make his kids breakfast and he ended up upon the Chocolate Cake sitting on the counter. He looked over the ingredients and came across, "Milk! Eggs! That's nutrition!"

So often we look at the things we eat and try to justify what we're eating. "It has healthy ingredients! It has to be good for me!" or "It's only a little bit! I deserve it!" The truth is that, while no food should ever be totally off limits, we need to put everything into the right context and not kid ourselves in what we're eating and how much. Disipline is hard because food so often is very enjoyable. We want more, but at what cost? It's something to think about and keep in mind when trying to lose weight.

Oh, and if you've never heard Bill Cosby's stand up, especially about the Chocolate Cake, then you owe it to yourself to check it out right now.
