you've come a long way baby.........
duh-- i just got hit with this realization!!
i grew up in the whole women's lib era.......and wow, we sure did it- we work everywhere- i work in a mainly male field........we can cuss like sailors..........wear jeans...... drink like a fish.........etc, etc......
well, i sure wish those women's lib pioneers who fought so hard for all of us had said- yes- you can do anything a man can do-- EXCEPT EAT!!!
this is what finally hit me upside the head- hearing the calories allowed for BL contestants- the women are about 1100, the guys are 3400!! wow.........i'm pretty sure they're working out about the same amound of time every day-- that's 1/3 for the women!! well- let me tell you- i eat man size portions! i have huge portion issues, not to mention being a very good member of the clean plate club!
i've never been in a restaurant that has a man's menu, and a woman's-- and i sure can eat the whole portion of whatever-- not just 1 third!! and plates at home-- you couldn't tell if it were a guys plate or a chicks-- equality means equal portions, right??
sheesh, this has given me a whole new way of looking at what i eat, and how much!
i sure don't like it!!........
in my next life- i do want to be a guy- with a great metabolism-- can you imagine eating 3000 calories a day and LOSING weight???
sounds like heaven to me!!
