The words today are weight
Everywhere you look
Lose ten pounds is the key
And found in every book.
I used to think I looked alright
Until I heard the news
That I am unhealthy and oh so fat
And now I have the blues.
Our forefathers ate from the ground
And we eat from a box or can
The chemicals we do put within
Should automatically all be banned.
I want to be happy with who I am
I will never be very thin
So turn my mind to home cooked meals
And empty out the cookie tin.
It if grew in the ground it is alright
If it came from production, get it out of sight
Replace the sweets with natural sugars
And never, ever eat through the night.
I don’t have to be a walking stick
To feel like I fit in
I just want my inner parts
To be happy inside my skin.
What a true statement. Great poem Terry. Too many rules to eating these days. 🙂
you got that right!!!!
That is why I don’t listen to the rules, but listen to my body and what it wants. If you do listen you can tell when it needs more water, more fruit, and so on. What you crave is your body telling you it is low on something that a certain food provides. I also listen to God who says I am beautifully and wonderfully made. So let others dwell on the rules humans make that leave you self-defeated, but for me…God and my body know better.
i love the way you think!!!!! who knows better your body than you and God! i never knew about the cravings though, because i don’t eat added salt, and some days i just think about salt all day long! now i know, i must need a little bit
Salt does have nutrients you need, but shouldn’t be eaten in excess. Garlic can give you that salty taste too.
i use garlic powder, does this count?
