“On the other side of No is JOY!” – Pastor Bill Bambach


Our temptations whether they be food, sex, alcohol, gambling, work, and other good things used wrong all lie to us.  They tell us do _______________ because it will make you happy.  It’s exciting.  Tasty.  Fulfilling.  And for a few brief moments they are.  We indulge in our temptation and get our fill/fix.  Then what?….

Where do the good ones hangout?


The chances of finding a high quality mate in a bar are very slim.  You need to go where there is a higher concentration of loyal, consistent, and healthy people.  It’s the same with food.  Bar food is not the type of food you should get married to.  (For this article married to food = eat it, since once you eat it that food becomes a part of you).  You need to go where the good food hangs out.  Not the chip isle of the grocery store.  Shop the produce, deli, fresh meats, eggs, etc.  The middle isles of the grocery store are generally full of the non-marriage material and cheat on you types of food.  They promise you happiness and health but once you marry them they turn around and make your pants too tight and you depressed.

How to eat ALL your kids candy…and not gain a pound!!

Candystand How to eat ALL your kids candy...and not gain a pound!!

You might not believe it now but I used to be (and still fighting it) a candy fanatic.  I had a paper route when I was 11 and spent a good portion of what I made on candy.  Even the 4 fillings couldn’t stop my love for candy.  I did finally realize it was a weakness and have had to plan around it.  I never buy candy or keep it around.  Ok, I do buy candy sometimes who can be a saint 24/7?

This actually brings me to the point of this article.  Cheating.  (aka eating all your kids candy) Cheating does sound negative and I don’t like negative words so we can call it planned diet inflamation.  There is actually good evidence that Cheating (PDI) can actually help people stay on track.  It could, in some cases lead to better results. 
Let me explain it quickly.  If you know you have a day you can go for some extra “treats” then it can make sticking to the plan on the other days more do able.  On top of this, the higher calorie day can actually get your metabolism to rev up a little and help to incease resting metabolism.
