Open mouth. Insert Food. Repeat.

Oy.
OK I was over at the good peoples at Iowa Avenue fitness and their article of the day was about the gritty details involved when you gain/lose one pound. According to the math, a pound equals 3500 calories. So to lose a pound a week, you have to have a negative calorie balance of 500 calories per day. OK...doable. I can get to that. Exercise alone will help.
But what's really wierding me out is that also means that to put on what I have done in such a short of time I must've been eating enough food for about 4 people...daily.
WTF?
If that wasn't a kick in the ass to stop the endless snacking, I don't know what else is...
Yowza.
Somehow seeing the numbers in my face gave me a bit of a slap...bad me

Wow, thanks for the plug, and your blog proves a point. Many people don't realize how much they're eating, and how quickly it adds up.

Studies have shown that people consistantly underestimate how much they eat.

I'm glad you've "seen" the light..............:)
