Today all of the guests are here and the food is smelling great.
Barbecued ribs, baked beans, potato salad, potato chips, sodas, all
kinds of bar drinks, a big ol' cake... And what am I eating? The GOOD
stuff! I mean it - look at that salad up there. How can you beat a
salad that looks that inviting? My girlfriend made it and I just had to
share it with all of you. Knowing that I'm up here writing a paper and
staying raw, she's already made me two salads, juiced some oranges,
made sure I got my vitamin and brought me papaya slices. Isn't that
So today I had only about 26 points when I'm supposed to be, according
to Weight Watchers, at 32. I'd eat more but I'm too full from my salad
to do it. As you can see below, much of my salads contain 0-point
foods. This illustrates one of the arguments against a sustained diet
of raw foods; that raw vegetables and fruits are so low in calories
that you have to eat more than you might be comfortable with in order
to get all your calories in. Since I'm trying to lose a lot of weight,
that particular argument isn't so crucial to me at the moment, frankly.
I'll worry about it when I approach my goal weight - um, whatever that
may be. (Unsurprisingly, healthy weight is another point of contention
between raw foodists and the non-raw).
