I eat what I like, too.

I let my body tell me when to stop eating/drinking anything.

I noticed that the effects of drinking caffeine was becoming so noticeable that it was uncomfortable. After years (decades) of coffee drinking, I just couldn't handle it any more. I still like the taste, but am satisfied with decaf now.

So so true!

People fill their bodies with synthetic, chemical concoctions called "food" (which are packaged prettily and advertised amazingly well) and wonder why their bodies reacts inversely. The saddest part is, it isn't usually an instant bad reaction. The US health / weight issue isn't something that happened overnight, it's been years in the making.

Doctors are STILL handing out the same advice to people today that they did in FDRs time (eat less, exercise more, no red meat, blah blah blah). It didn't cure FDR of high-cholesterol then and it isn't curing anyone today.

haha This is obviously a subject near and dear to my heart. Eat real food. Cook real food. <3

adversely not inversely! Hate when I spell the wrong word right. ;)
