In the category of favorite suggestions ever made to me, I place the following:
“You should always eat what your body is craving, because the body craves what the body needs. Your body is never wrong.”
Love it. Love it. Love it.
I wield this powerful tool like a ninja. A samurai. A sword-bearing, armor-plated, enabling Knight of the Round (and copiously overflowing) Table.
I use my sword to justify the eating of bacon (My body is craving bacon! It must need salt and pork products!), the drinking of chocolate milk (My body is craving chocolate milk! It must need artificially sweetened dairy-based beverages!), and the snacking of M&M’s (My body is craving M&M’s! It must need some chocolate that will melt in my mouth and not in my hands!)
So, you know, when I started craving an ice cream sundae like nobody’s business the other day, I knew that this was an urge that I needed to satisfy: I’m clearly suffering from some sort of ice cream sundae deficiency.
