I commented on the blog that I, too, should try an experiment like that because I know for a fact that when I'm counting calories, if I have calories "left" there are times when I would eat something more, even though I am not hungry. That is just dumb and also goes to show how much more is involved in eating than just plain old stomach growling hunger. At least for me.
- The worst ever case of Plantar Fasciitis. If this turns out to be so, he will set me up for a series of injections.
