Would you like some free diet advice?

Of course not! But here’s my tidbit for today: never compare your eating habits with a 6’4″, 220 lb., muscle bound marathon running man.

You’ve heard the old blah, blah, blah about keeping a diet journal. It’s something I do pretty regularly and Erik decided to follow suit. In my 18 years of living with him I knew he ate a lot but never really paid attention.

Here’s his first meal all eaten between 6 and 7 on a Wednesday evening:

2 cups granola with 1 cup milk and hershey’s chocolate sauce poured over the top

1 dozen crackers spread with cheese and sundried tomatoes

1 bowl cinnamon toast crunch

1 grapefruit

1 bowl taco soup(our actual dinner)

3 cupcakes

6 lindt balls

He said it really helped; made him consume less.

No wonder I think I’m such a light eater. 😉

    My FAVORITE was right after we were married and my husband lost 20 pounds in a couple of months. When asked about it his response… “well I stopped drinking soda”….what the heck? Where is the equality?

    Oh my word – I cannot imagine your grocery budget with 5 boys AND a husband who eats like that. LOL.

    Well, at least he just stopped at the 6 Lindt balls. As he’s divulged previously, 6 has not always been his limit.
