- As far as weight gain or loss, a calorie is a calorie. If you normally eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, fiber, healthy protein, good fats and whole grains, I don't believe that eating nothing but candy and sugar for only one single day would really do any damage to your body in the long run. You would feel bad for a day or so, though. SEE, I'M FEELING BETTER ABOUT MYSELF NOW. NO TRULY LONG LASTING EFFECTS OF EATING NOTHING GOOD FOR ME THIS ENTIRE DAY. WELL, MAYBE A FEW OTHER DAYS, TOO.
- Of course if you started eating like that with some frequency, you would have vitamin and mineral deficiencies, you wouldn't get the healthy fats you need, you would eat too many saturated and unhealthy trans fats and you wouldn't get enough protein. You would probably have poor health due to the deficiencies, low energy levels, and your immune system wouldn't work as well as it should. SO, NOT FEELING SO GREAT ABOUT IT NOW. BUT CAN I JUST SAY THERE ARE NO TRANS FATS IN CANDY.. OKAY, STILL NOT FEELING SO GREAT.
- One problem with sodas and candy is that once we start indulging our cravings for those sweets, the cravings get worse and worse and we may eat more and more of the sugary foods which would displace all the healthy foods we really need. BINGO WE HAVE A WINNER.....
I want to be happy when I do this. Right now, I'm just not feelin the love. The scale and I are having a difference of opinion. My opinion is that it should be the number I want it to be and it's opinion is that it will be the number that it truly is. I literally want to have my cake and eat it too. Without the consequences, of course. I need to make better choices and be more accountable. So, I'm moving on, I'm stepping away from the candy and cookies. I don't want to play Bingo anymore.
