OK, OK, I just left McDonalds's, which I normally visit after a long day at work taking care of other people's kids. This night, I visited the clown's stomping grounds to get a late night meal because I knew that I didn't really want to cook anything so near my bedtime.
Granted, I am aware of weight loss experts who advise dieters to stop eating two or more hours before bed. However, I am not aware of an expert who can tell my stomach to stop being hungry within that same time frame. So, I just eat what I want.
I tried to behave by getting a fruit and walnut and a small fry, but when I got home I remembered last night's leftover curry and downed that too. At least it was vegetarian, maybe that will help me cut some calories.
At a quarter till nine, I'm finally full, but I'm still wondering. How can I help myself get over the need to eat so late? My body sleeps better without the late night munch marathons, but I don't know how to get over that gnawing yet.
To make matters worse, I've just watched a YouTube video about the weird science behind McDonald's meals. Apparently, they don't decompose. You can see the lady of the four-year-old burger here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
I'm so not loving it.
