My Weight tied to Gas Prices

Getting angry? Going mad, to facilitate a diet... does it take drama to diet?

I invested an entire year in learning about nutrition, exploring both a vegan and a raw 'living-food' lifestyle. What did I learn? For one, eating is an integral part of who I am. Only when I live in an extremely supportive community could I make such a radical shift. Even though I know 'intellectually' what is more healthy, the pleasure and social expedience of local foods out weighs my 'knowledge' of health.

I love eating with friends or alone. When alone I want to bath myself in pleasure (feel full) and when with friends I want a joyous voluptuous eating experience for everyone. Unless I were to move into a raw vegan, vegan, or vegetarian home, with a willful and skillful cook, could I sustain such a diet... And, even then, I suspect this would only be maintained while under the umbrella of that closed environment. As soon as I ventured out I would again relish the local sinful fare.
