An interesting theory

Ry has an interesting theory about food intake. You see, I'm trying to lose about 15 more pounds of baby weight (12 this morning!). I've been trying to keep an eye on how many calories I'm eating every day, so I can make sure I'm getting the right balance. Too many = fat Jube. Too few = problems with breast milk production. Most days I do pretty good, but it seems like when I fall off the wagon, I fall off the wagon. Once I start eating crap, it seems, I can't stop until sleep wipes the palate clean.

Ry's theory is this: if you're going to eat bad food, eat it all in one day, because the body can only absorb so much junk in one sitting. I wonder if there is anything to this theory. Could it be it's better to eat your weight in girl scout cookies in one day as opposed to spreading it out over the week? Talk amongst yourselves.

Hmmm, interesting theory. It sounds similar to my "It's ok to drink when you're sick because the alcohol kills the bacteria" theory.

I like it. I don't know if it's true, but I like it.

Once I've eaten a certain amount of crap, I figure "What the hell, in for a penny in for a pound" and then proceed to go to town. Strange how you can know something is totally illogical and do it anyway.
