Dan has become a healthy zealot with food. I used to remember him eating a burger and fries but you won't catch him doing that nowadays. Last time we went out to a Chinese restaurant he ordered TOFU (great restaurant, by the way).
While I am nowhere near Dan's status I am trying to watch what I eat. In particular, I try not to eat what I know is bad for me or make me feel like a big bloated sloth. I was recently at Chipolte where I usually get a burrito "bol" which means that you don't get that white flour burrito, you just get the stuff inside the burrito (and I don't usually order the white rice either) which is relatively healthy or at least doesn't make you feel like you are going to explode immediately after eating. But this time... I got what I really wanted, which was a big ol' steak burrito with bad white rice inside and I just ate it up. I think that it weighted about 2 pounds in my hand which means a big pile of bloating. It tasted good on the way down but I was in for trouble, just as I expected, and most of my day was shot as I barely functioned.
But times like that are less and less frequent, even I can learn at some point.
While this has nothing to do with the post above I had to laugh in my tiny jewel when I saw this cereal box... I thought of the scene in "The Ice Storm" when the 70's sw*ngers (DEFINITELY don't want that traffic) pulled their keys out of a big bowl... and then mayhem ensued.
