You could call me a health nut, I guess.. I eat healthy stuff all the time. Anyhoo, here are my brief likes and major dislikes... I LOOOOOOOOOOVE fried food, especially chicken and onion rings. White rice with butter on it, OMG! When that's there, I eat a MASSIVE amount of it. Pinto beans with chili powder and garlic power in it, BOOYA! But I HATE baked beans.. especially the way my grandfather makes it, with more vinegar than beans.. I hate vinegar anyway. And breakfast sausage... *hurls* And eggs, especially scrambled.. *hurls* Had a bad scrambled-egg trauma as a child.. my grandmother made me eat it, and I hurled later just because of the taste. But I like hard-boiled eggs. And I resent onions and peppers and coconut.. to this day I have no idea why. Maybe the taste, maybe the texture.. I dunno, but it ruins anything I'm eating if it's in it. That's why I LOVE salsa, but I only dip chips in the juice. No chunks of peppers. When I eat jalepeno cheese dip (and I LOVE the taste of jalepenos, but I don't like EATING the jalepenos for some reason), there's always a bunch of jalepenos at the bottom at the end. And I hate anything with hamburger. Always hated hamburger and hamburgers and cheeseburgers. That's why I believe chili should consist of the chili juice, macaroni and beans, and that's all it should be. I am so weird, and I know it. Plus, I love most vegetables.. except regular squash.. it has no taste. It's basically solid water it's so plain. I LOVE broccoli, with butter and slightly overcooked. I LOVE peas, and lima beans are good. Carrots are okay. Potatoes in any form are righteous, except the cheap, lumpy, grainy mashed potatoes. Gotta be GOOD mashed potatoes. And I LOVE the buffalo wings at Dogs R Us... O.. M.. G..!!!! If there were a Dogs-R-Us-buffalo-wing-sauce flavored drink, I'd drink it EVERY DAY!! I don't snack, so all that I just said abovd has been MOSTLY about dinner. For breakfast.. that's a random decision for me. I'm not a breakfast *person* who has to have 20 pounds of hot crap. Pop tarts are good. Any cereal, especially Mini Wheats or Total. Toaster waffles are a good I-have-nothing-else. Fruit is good, fruit is always good. Except citrus.. never liked it much. And orange juice.. I HATE IT!! With or without pulp, it's nasty. But why do people even like pulp in it anyway?? One of my favorite comedians once said about orange juice with pulp.. "People are always like, 'HEY, It's just like eating an orange!' HEY, It's just like drinking a glass of sea monkies!"
Anyway, I don't eat much.. rarely, actually. I have a frustrating metabolism.. it takes me FOREVER to get physically hungry!! The way that's frustrating is.. I do not allow myself to eat if I'm not truly physically hungry. If I ate as much as a normal person would eat, I'd be overweight because of my half-the-speed-of-smell metabolism. It was once confirmed my stomache empties slowly. I ate at 10AM this morning. I ain't gonna be hungry again until AT LEAST 5PM tonight. And this sucks, because I LOVE food. I can't help it. But I have discipline and I KNOW that if I eat a "normal" amount of food, there's no way I could ever stay in shape. I have to eat very little to stay below overweight. I usually just eat breakfast and dinner, and that's it. No lunch. No snacks. The only snack I eat are sunflower seeds, and only at night. I'm extremely used to eating this little, but it gets me in a funk sometimes. Many other teenagers have "normal" metabolisms and can eat CONSTANTLY and still be a normal weight. Take my cousin Justin for example. He eats ALL THE TIME and is still skinny as hell, because he has a good metabolism. Me? I eat like a Marine rationing my daily food among 30 other starving Marines and, only by that, acheiving a normal weight. The good thing is, this means my body needs VERY LITTLE food and VERY FEW calories to function, so I'd last FOR-@#$%-EVER on a deserted island. The bad thing is, I almost never get hungry, therefore I almost never get an excuse to eat outside of my two meals a day. But the weird thing is.. if I drink alot of water, I get hungry quicker. But if I drink very little water, it takes twice as long to get hungry. What's up with that?
