So much good reading this week!
I should emphasize something: I rarely swear in my classes. Sure, I often teach Anne Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts” during the first week of my composition courses, and plenty of the readings I assign have their share of “bad words.” As a lecturer, though, I rarely utter anything worse than crap, hell, or piss. I […]
Passover is one of the many Jewish holidays that is celebrated with a ritual feast. A feast filled with symbolic foods and a prescribed schedule for when to eat these foods. Depending upon how observant the participants are, there is a wide range of recipes for the ritual readings at a Passover Seder.
One of the many things that I dislike about diets is that they’re so all-consuming. Personally, I think that dieters need to think and talk about their diets all the time because it’s really not a natural thing to be on a diet.
It started even before New Year’s. The onslaught of ads and messaging telling you that the fun was over. Eating for pleasure, partying, etc. You had done too much. You passed the limit. And now it is time to make amends, say your mea culpas, and get your ass to WeightWatchers/JennyCraig/ LucilleRoberts/NutriSystem. It’s time to […]
Yes, you read that correctly. I am promoting a restrictive diet and I am inviting you to join me in my Guilt Loss Program. One of the comments I hear frequently in my work is some version of:
I’ve been seriously crazed this week in preparing for the HAES® Master Class and Rosh Hashanah, so I’ve decided to share a snippet of my book, Stop Dieting Now: 25 Reasons To Stop, 25 Ways To Heal. I hope you find it helpful!
Let me know if this sounds familiar to you.
International No Diet Day was yesterday, and it’s a sacred holiday to folks like me. So in honor of this holiday, I’m giving away my book for free and sharing my favorite dieting breakup tips with you.
Did the title of this post kind of piss you off? Good! The idea that weight loss is a good idea and a worthy achievement is so ingrained in our society that most of us take it for granted. Of course, losing weight is an achievement, right? We heap praise on anyone who does it. […]
This having casual sex thing has been really, really helpful for me. In the few months since I’ve started doing it, I’ve learned a lot more about what feels good for me sexually, opened my mind up to things I’ve never considered about my sexuality and I’ve met some pretty good people along the way. […]
In November of 1998, during my senior year in college, I embarked on a new diet. I called it “low carb with fruit.” I cut out a lot of foods, and like most diets, it started working in the beginning. Because I was losing weight, I stuck with the diet very carefully.
I know a great deal about stuffing my face. I did it compulsively for years, even as a teen, when stuffing my face had far fewer drawbacks. Oh, high metabolism, thou art missed. Now, we all define stuffing our faces differently. For me, it meant eating unhealthy foods for most nights of the weeks, and […]
How often do you hear or say phrases like this? “My eating is so out of control.”
I’m kind of sick of the phrase “emotional eating” getting bandied about like it’s the worst sin you could possibly commit against your health.
