I don't know what reminded me, but years ago at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting we were given an unofficial diet to follow if we chose to. Unofficial because just like SparkPeople, OA will not tell you what program or diet to follow.
Anyway, I remember asking how many calories in some vegetable and I can still hear this really sweet person saying, "There are less calories in the worst vegetable than in the best of the junk food."
What a mouthful then, and it still works today.
The worst fruits and vegetables are still lower in calories than that donut!
Have a fruitful day!
To answer the question below, "why do the donuts and cake and cookies call my name more often than the fruits and vegetables? It's maddening! ":
Because for some of us it is habit, but for too many it is addiction. This is an inside peek at what drug addicts and alcoholics probably go through every minute of every day.
I don't know about you, but this gives me the strength to say to myself, "no more!"
