Well, it’s been over for quite a while.
But I might as well make it official. My first “bulk” purchase of rice & beans. Smart & Final is great for that. Costco prices with medium size bulk items, like in the 10-20 pound range. And also, it’s not fucking Costco. There’s that, too.
Do notice that this is rice, legumes, starchy veggies and fruit. It’s not bags and boxes of junk and sugar water—and Hot Pockets. None of it is from the Atkins isle of junk food that’s virtuous because of a macronutrient. The low carbohydrate diet is deserving of ridicule in this area until it makes these critical distinctions. It never will, of course, and therefore, will always remain rather ridiculous as anything other than an intervention therapy for things like extreme obesity, diabetes, some cancer and some neurological disorders.
…Still waiting to gain all that weight I was predicted to gain (versus steadily and gradually losing, without hunger or cravings).
