Stress does terrible things to us, doesn't it? You know, we start the day determined to get our eating under control and as the day progresses we eat more and more. Nervous eating, we call it.
For breakfast we have half of a grapefruit, a bowl of low-fat, low-carb cereal with skim milk, and a cup of coffee with non-fat creamer.
For lunch we have a four ounce chicken breast, one cup of steamed zucchini, one Oreo cookie, and a cup of herb tea.
For a mid afternoon snack we have six Oreos and a diet Coke.
For supper we have six pieces of pizza, a Greek salad, two beers, and a triple dip of ice cream.
Then late at night we eat the rest of the package of Oreos, the rest of the pizza, a peanut butter sandwich, half of a gallon of butter pecan ice cream, and three wine coolers.
Stress is deadly.
