taurushead - you know that you're being too critical. start enjoying your life! stop OVERanalyzing.<br><br><br><br>
that is not even CLOSE to too much sugar.<br><br>
and for what it's worth - molasses is sugar <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
EAT!

Is this what you eat everyday? 9 meals a day, that's quite something. Anyways, I don't really see too much sugar in your diet, considering the average american consumes two three cans of soda a day. Just lay off the blueberry muffin. Fruit is only bad if you're trying to lose a significant amount of weight. Otherwise, eat up.

' quite something' ?<br><br><br><br>
i tried to stop spreading it out, this whole week ive had 'three meals and two snacks' but it doesn't work for me. i end up with the shakes and stuff, even if they're only hours apart?! which is bad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> i wish it did work. because its been an ongoing problem. this is the first week where ive gone out to dinner a lot, because normally by dinner time i only have a bit 'left' to eat and theres no point. on the social side of things..ive loved my trial week. but physically..i dont seem know how to do it. any advice would actually be really great..<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I don't know if this also applies to you, but when a food becomes forbidden you suddenly start obessing it and you're more likely to eat it?</div>

Well, I think you may feel that in the first week or so, but a personal example: I used to be so obsessed with taco bell that I would have taco bell attacks each week. I would have to drive down to the nearest taco bell or else I would have this craving that wouldn't go away. Over the past four days I went to a convention, and the food there was bad. I was on vacation, so I ate taco bell twice, but it definetely was not a craving. I ordered much less food. I was on vacation, so it didn't matter much. I knew that in four days I would be back home and back on my diet. But humans are creatures of habit. If it's possible to quite smoking or drinking, then why can't you quit a food addiction?

If you quit smoking or drinking(if you have an addiction), you totally QUIT, but you can't quit eating, I bet that's why it's so hard, even if it's just one particular food.

You can't TOTALLY quit one food? Are you joking? People every day turn pure vegan after a lifetime of eating meat. It takes self discipline and hard work just like everything else in life that's tough to achieve. Things don't happen with a snap of a finger.<br><br><br><br>
No one's telling you to quit eating, just to improve your lifestyle.
