Squeezing The Sugar Snake Back in A Nutrient CageCage

Good Morning, God!

Let’s see, it’s been over three days since my last sugar fix. I’m almost clean! And, I’m visiting Suz who is a great “role model” and a bite of a “monitor.” That helps, God! And I NEED the help.

Both Kit and Suz have no problem with “going without” food. Kit even LIKES weight loss “games.” But, my Body PANICS! Now, yesterday, Suz and I had a light breakfast around 9ish and agreed we’d have a late lunch. We got so into shopping we didn’t eat “lunch” at all — but had an early dinner at 5. My Body didn’t seem to even notice, let alone mind.

How could that be, God? Hmm. One difference is the Variety of Food that my Body is getting. So far I’ve had exquisite (mostly vegetables) Japanese food, Korean food with 32 different tiny side dishes, and Lebanese food. My Body seems delighted! And I do remember that our pre-agricultural ancestors ate 800 different foods over the course of a year. So, maybe God, the variety is giving my Body the nutrients it needs? Enough nutrients so my Body isn’t anxious?

Looking up at the photo I took of our Lebanese dinner I can see that the tabouli is almost entirely parsley — while American versions are mostly bulgar wheat. The waiter told us that parsley has 14 vitamins in it. No wonder I wasn’t hungry later!

Hmmm. That’s sort of a foreground background shift on thinking about obesity, isn’t it, God? Seeing obesity as caused by the ABSENCE of nutrients — not the EXCESS of calories? That FEELS, God, like a VERY USEFUL THOUGHT. Please help me –help all of us in “Industrial Societies” — eat more nutrient rich foods. Alas, the best nutrients don’t “live” in boxes sitting on shelves.

Story teller,
