This is a 'Ruby' inspired question - I was watching episodes this weekend (not the most current one, but I don't know if it was this season or last that I was wathcing when this came up).

I'm answering separately from my question so that my answers don't influence people's response...


I think I don't eat a lot - although sometimes when I log my food, I see what I've eaten in a day and it surprises me, so I think I eat more than I think I do.

I think that I eat a lot. Sometimes I will be eating and think "why am I eating so much no one else is".

hmmm, I think I have a portion control problem most of the time I don't eat alot of junk but when I do I still have a portion control problem of course that is all relative too..what do you consider junk..chips yes popcorn no etc also things like cheese I don't consider junk but it's not "good" for you and I eat too much of it..

Hmmmm, I don't think I eat a lot....but according to what I've read I'd need to eat like 3500 calories a day to maintain my current weight.....and I've been maintainin for years so .....I guess It's more than normal.

I do know though that I started gaining weight when we got busier and started eating fast food more.....so while a fast food meal may seem like a normal portion, it's so high in calories that it's equivalent to eating double what you would at home....KWIM? And now when I start looking up some of the things I used to eat....I'm shocked at the calorie content of them.

So for me, I think it's that I eat the wrong things....and maybe slightly larger portions than I should be.

These are my junk food definitions....


Chips are definitely junk to me - they are my biggest weakness but always junk.

Penny,


I agree with you on fast food - I am older than most people on the board, and my mom always made dinners at home - meat, potato, fresh vegetables(except Wednesday was Prince Spaghetti day!).

Interesting question, SJ!


For me, I think that most of what I eat is the right stuff and the right amount.

I think I have gone back and forth on this.

I think that I both eat too much and not the right the things.
