I really hate the fact that we as humans crave things. I really really do.
So I have to preface this by saying that I feel as strongly as I do about this right at this very moment because I have constant cravings for sugar and I just polished a rather large bowl of frozen yogurt. And what does it boil down to? Basic biological needs that predate the invention of frozen yogurt by centuries. See, it wouldn’t be so bad if sugar was as hard to find as it used to be, but now that it’s in LITERALLY EVERYTHING, it’s really conflicting with my desire to live a healthy lifestyle.
If there was an option out there to somehow magically delete my cravings for sugar, though, I’m not actually sure I would take it. Of course, my first thought would be that it would just be wonderful and that yes, of course I would take that option. But on the other hand… I can’t imagine what it would be like to not love sugar the way I love sugar. The day I eat a bar of chocolate (yes, eating the whole bar in one sitting is the only option) and think to myself “Huh, I was really in the mood for chips” is the day I am no longer me.
In case you don’t quite understand yet: I have the sweet tooth of Augustus Gloop from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. And I wonder why I have a mouthful of cavities and love handles that refuse to go away.
My desire to eat healthy is strong, but my silly cravings are simply many thousands times stronger.
