The Year of no Dessert is over.
by:Pox
2015/06/30
So in 2014 I undertook a simple nonsensical challenge:



I lasted about 6 months. It was real fun telling everyone I wasn't going to eat dessert. You don't realize how many chances you get to say no to a bowl of chips or a piece of pie in the course of a month. At first I even counted how many calories I was saving myself based on what I turned down.

It wasn't that much. I already didn't eat much dessert at home so over the course of a week it was maybe 500 calories. As we all know, 3500 calories is a pound of fat, so that means if I said "no" all year, I would have saved myself less than 2 pounds of blubber.

But then something happened. I stopped caring and it became apparent that I wasn't saying "no" to ONE piece of cake, I was saying it to a FUCKTON of cake. I eat a LOT. If there's cake, I will eat ALL THE CAKE. So sure enough after the summer was over, I started slowly gaining weight. There were other factors at play, but having that occasional cake-binge wasn't helping.

I'll also say that after a couple weeks it was really easy to not eat dessert. I don't even eat any now, really, unless I'm visiting. AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE I'M NOT HUNGRY. There's always room for sugar. Always.

Everyone should try this for at least a month just to gauge how much garbage they're actually eating and to see that maybe it's not so hard to get through life without a daily bag of skittles.
