gotd: That so many people I know, we all know, aka Paleobird's post, who expect to get the benefits without the work. Even on this site, people can come up with more excuses than the grains of sand on Malibu Beach for why they can't do this or that part of the diet/program, which in time comes across as basically they don't really want to give up their goodies. And they seem to make little if any progress. An obstacle is not an excuse for not making strides toward weight loss or strength gains, but something to figure out how to manage.
I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.
“How does today’s youngster educate his sense of taste? By submerging it in a sea of sugar from the time he gets up to the time he goes to bed.” W. Root and Richard DeRochemont, Eating in America (1976)
