Quotes For People Whose Hobbies Include Eating

I'll be honest, I'm always hungry. I just ate lunch not half an hour ago, and I'm already fantasizing about the snack I'm going to eat while I make dinner.

Suffice it to say, food is a pretty big part of my life. And I don't think there's any shame in admitting that. Food helps us live, and some of tastes pretty darn good.

So yes, I would enjoy a second helping. Thank you for asking.

A year or so ago, I lost 50 pounds which is awesome, but then I became terrified of eating anything that some people might define as "bad" or "unhealthy".

It's not easy. After all, I'd spent so long convincing myself I couldn't eat certain things that suddenly allowing myself to "indulge", so to speak, felt impossible.

But thanks to the support from my family and friends, I gradually rediscovered my love for food. And oh boy, I'm so glad I did.

Nowadays, I do my best to listen to my body and give it what it wants, within reason of course.

Establishing that healthy connection between your brain and your stomach is crucial, but also oh-so-satisfying. And it's certainly changed my life for the better.

Now I'm proud to say that I've discovered a healthy, manageable relationship with all the good foods again. Which just might be the best relationship I've ever been in (please don't tell my boyfriend).

And now that I'm back to a good place, I would be more than happy to check out your car. Just so long as the side opens up and I can expect to be handed an order of fries, that is.
