Fast Food Is Evil

This week has been a bit rough for me, food wise.  I've been fighting a lot of inner demons with it.  I've pretty much given up diet pop, actually Diet Pepsi and I've quit buying creamers to put in my coffee.  It may be a small thing but a few of the last things I was so reluctant to give up.  With the impending beginning of the colon cleanse that I think will start on Tuesday, I'm trying to ready my body.  I picked up the kit on Thursday and started really reading and planning.  I have to hit the store Monday and get my veggies and fruit and then I'll be ready.  My issue this week has been trying not to eat fast food.  I'm usually not too bad.  I don't eat it much but driving past a Taco Bell I wanted, WANTED to stop and get something.  Then I thought well, I'm going to pass Sonic, I can get a Sonic Blast.  OH MY GOSH!  I had to fight myself to not stop.  I finally made it home, WHEW, where I got my bottled water and used a Crystal Light thing to give me something tasty.  It was so tough, I can tell you but I talked myself down.   Fast food is evil!  I did not have it growing up, we didn't have access but the culture we live in has made it a part of my life.  I am going to break this habit once and for all.  I am going to make some right choices.

I admire your resolve.

What cleanse are you doing?

Wonderful! That is not an easy thing to do...but they say if you can make it 21 days, you will have it licked. That's how long it takes to break a habit and start a new one. I did it once, but I fell off the wagon. Better luck to you.

I don't think I will ever kick my soda habit. I've cut way back, to where it is a rare treat, but I love it too much to give it up! The same is also true for butter. I've seriously limited when and how I use it, but some days just call for a nice buttered piece of toast. Good luck!

Hey, I actually read once that eating junk foods sends signal to your brain similar to exctasy and heroine so you do feel addicted as if it was a drug!
BTW, I don't know if you were talking about actual proper cleansing or just healthy eating but maybe you'd be interested to read one of my posts on dangers of colon cleansing and other detox products.
