Inspiration from Margaret Cho

I read this blog post some time ago but came across it again today. And it rocks. If you don’t like the word “fuck”, this isn’t for you. Everyone else, please read it. Now. In it, Margaret Cho unveiled the secret to her weight loss success. It boils down to (emphasis mine):
“I never eat leftovers. I never take anything home. I never eat anything that doesn’t taste heavenly. I never eat when I am not hungry. I never let myself get too hungry. I never deny myself a fucking thing because I have denied myself enough for 1000 lifetimes and there is no more denial for me in the way that I live. I deserve all the mozzarella sticks, all the fucking chocolate, all the fucking pizza, all the chicken a’la king, and I deserve to leave what I don’t finish on the plate.

So there you go. Big secret diet. Love. Love and the audacity to actually waste food.”

I’m working on it, Margaret!

I honestly think food is to be enjoyed, loved, appreciated, valued and helpful for your health. I do not care if I never weigh 125, in fact I would never want to!

Hey FT!!! Yes, I completely agree. The Nourishing Traditions book is really helping me reconnect with what I love about cooking. And I’m learning so much that I had absolutely no idea about. I’m interested to see how you like it!
