**Part of a week long set I am doing in reference to the seven deadly sins**
Gluttony / Gula
Now here is a sin that sounds exactly how it is defined. Gluttony – the sin over eating too much food. Historically and depending on the culture that you are raised in, it can be defined as eating too expensively, eating eagerly, rudely, or uncontrollably crazy. But for me, the sin of gluttony is overindulgence of food.
So I’ll go ahead and say this, none of the seven deadly sins disgusts me more than gluttony. Nothing repulses me more than to be on a date with a girl who eats like a goddamn pig. I really don’t care what she looks like, that has nothing to do with it. But to sit there and watch a girl horse down a 8 slices of pizza, a supersize french fry, or crazy amounts of pasta down her throat and then order 3 pieces of carrot cake when she is done only to drink 7 Dr Peppers along the way makes me want regurgitate my own food and throw up. It truly revolts me. It just shows a lack of respect for yourself and your own body. It shows me that you really don’t care about being healthy. It’s a just disgusting thing to do all the way around.
I eat a very particular diet. I wrote about it before on here so I really won’t get into it. But in short I eat a lot of meat, vegetables, dairy products, nuts, and fruits. That’s pretty much it. Almost everything I eat is as few steps removed from nature as possible. I don’t eat shit candy, fast food, food in a box, food in a can (except soup), or mostly any junk food. I try to avoid aspartame and sweeteners too, that shit is too good to be true, something’s gotta give there.
You are what you eat. Not only have I lost weight and maintain a good weight with the way I eat, it makes me feel healthy and good. Whether or not I’m right in what I eat being beneficial is beside the point. I feel good about myself after eating, and I’m about as healthy as anyone.
Gluttony, number two of the seven deadly sins.
