I got another spammy comment! I know I'm probably not supposed to spotlight negative sentiments, but I can't help it; they make interesting points of discussion (or maybe that's what the commenters want?). On chocs, meat pies, bread, and GMOs, Christina (whose name links to a site about...dogs?) says:
can i just say, that you are an apsolute pig- never known such an obsessed glut as yourself- do you not realize the harm you are doing to your body?!- your disgusting, but hey that's your body, and YOUR not complaining, even though i am- on your behalf- no you truley make me sick, and good luck to the whatever restricted lifespan you have left!
Do I realize the harm I'm doing to my body? After being on a rather obsessive healthy diet for two years, well, I have some kind of idea. Thanks for pointing that out to me. [Note to self: "eating too much is bad for my body"...yes, got that.]
Is it okay if I berate every person who drinks soda, coffee, smokes too much, eats too many pop tarts, etc, with "HOLY SHIT YOU'RE GONNA DIE" related expressions? I got tired of lecturing people when I was eating healthier food...so I guess I'm on the other end of the spectrum now. To be honest, I think those things to myself, but I don't see the point of telling people these thoughts because it's your thing. You're not going to listen to me. If you know the health risks and don't care, well...that's fine, unless you're related to me and I really want you alive.
Maybe that's selfish. I only express concern for people I care about? INSTEAD OF THE WHOOOOLE WOOORLD?
As for the restricted lifespan thing, when I was on the raw food diet I used to think about how nice it would be to live a long, healthy life. I'd be nearly disease-free! I'd be full of life-force from fruit or whatever! And then I realized my life sucked because I wasn't very happy and I had no social life. Living a long time seemed a bit pointless in that sense. For example, my grandparents may live to be 120 at the rate their going, but their lives kinda suck. I won't get into it.
I don't mean to imply that eating raw food is a sentence to a craptastic life, as it's turned around many people's lives for the better (I hope), but a certain way of eating may not work for everyone. Obviously, we have different lifestyles. Some people have no problem eating the same five dishes all the time. Some people want to eat different things all the time. Some people can't control their eating. Some people are anorexic. I used to have less control over my eating but I think I'm marginally better now. Obviously, majoring in food shows you that I have food on the brain a lot; that's my thing. It's one of many hobbies.
I wonder how readers would perceive me if I were a guy instead of a girl. Certainly, different characeristics are expected of women. (I could be wrong, but I think most food blogs are written by women. That's just ...something I'm throwing out. Also, the food department is 99% female. That's not the official number but I've had all-female classes, or classes with 1 or 2 guys. From my observations, most students are slim or average.) I'm not saying that it's okay for guys to act as slovenly pigs, but I think it's more woman-like to not eat too much and hopefully to keep a good figure, annnnd whatnot. If my metabolism were any worse, I have to admit that I'd probably eat less. Or. I should.
Lastly, we're not going to pick on the grammatical errors in the comment, even if we want to, since they're irrelevant.
...Super-lastly, it's almost 2 AM, so I haven't edited this very well. Er. SAY SOMETHING.
