I've been thinking on this passage from the Bible lately....

"You say, 'I am allowed to do anything'—but not everything is good for you.
You say, 'I am allowed to do anything'—but not everything is beneficial."
1 Corinthians 10:23  (NLT)

My pursuit to eat when truly hungry and stop when satisfied (on the hunger/fullness scale of 0-5) means that technically I can eat anything that sounds good. However, as I've watched my habits and inclinations, I see that this verse is true. It may all be "allowed", but it's not all "beneficial". 

The balance here comes in recognizing that I may need to limit myself or implement some boundaries for ME, for MY body....not because a celebrity does it. Not because a diet book as recommended it. Not because it's the "IN" thing to do. 

I'm starting to find that I do not handle sugar well. It throws my mood off wildly. It sends my energy-level on a roller coaster. It's likely what's to blame for my skin's ups-and-downs. I am suspecting it may be behind the digestive problems I've been having. 

A book I'm currently reading even addresses the fact that sugar & alcohol are almost identical in their composition. I can't help but see the similarity behind the idea of someone being a sugar addict in the same way one can be an alcoholic.

Lots to think about... but I think it means some change is comin'!
