Don't laugh too hard, but I am on a "cook your meals at home"/"exercise 30 minutes a day"/"eat foods that make you poop" diet. I made it up myself, of course. I am trying to attack the physical and psychological issues that make me overweight. I over eat when eating out, but I don't usually over eat when I cook my own meals. I know that running 30 minutes/day is enough to counter 8 hours of sitting (for me anyways). So I run 4 days a week on my lunch break (it was 3 days until recently), and on the weekends I like to get out and walk or hike or something physically active for an hour or so. I also noticed that skinny girls don't deprive themselves of this food group over that food group, generally they have more self-control about how much they put in their mouths...and skinny girls seem to poop regularly. So, I eat foods that make me poop. The spaghetti was an emergency, I'm on a really tight budget and couldn't afford to grocery shop. I had whole wheat spaghetti and made the sauce with ground beef, some veggies that were about to go bad, and a cheap pasta sauce that I keep in my fridge. When I ate all the meat out of the spaghetti it was basically just a bowl of carbs...which stop me up. TMI I know.
