>Health and Nutrition>How would you describe your eating habits and what's your guilty pleasure (food or drink)?
Monday thru Friday I eat pretty healthy; lots of fish, chicken, whole grains, veggies, and fruit.
Weekends well.......all Hell breaks loose on Saturday and I do pretty good on Sunday most of the time.
My guilty pleasures are ice cream and pizza.

DON'T TREAD ON ME
for the longest time i thought your avatar was a naked woman's but with a cat paw on it.
Since I started eating a moatly vegitarian diet that I have much more energy, am not hungry all the time, have lost the 15 lbs. I've been trying to lose for 15 years and my running pace has quickened dramaticly.
I try to eat mostly homemade foods made from whole foods. In the summer & early autumn, a lot of that food is also homegrown. I'm actually so opinionated about food & food sources, that you probably don't really want me to completely describe my eating habits.
I don't really feel guilty about anything I eat, but I suppose you could call frozen yogurt, chips & salsa, or cinnamon rolls guilty pleasures.
I am an extreme creature of routine. For my Paleo eating style, I eat a whole chicken on most days by picking pieces off the chicken throughout the day. I add a couple of apples and some green leafy vegetables. I occasionally substitute pork for the chicken and blueberries, etc. for the apples, but, for the most part, I just never tire of the routine and I always enjoy the same foods.
Every couple of weeks, though, I treat myself to ribs. Ribs are discouraged on Paleo, since they are a fatty meat, but I give them a pass, since the fat content does not bother me and actually aids in weight control to an extent. There is a Chinese buffet up the street that serves large spare ribs in one of the buffet bins. I will go into that restaurant sometimes and just eat a couple plates full of the ribs without touching any of the other food in the restaurant. I just eat ribs until I am almost full. I'll also drive to different rib restaurants around Atlanta sometimes to sample a different slab of ribs when I want variety from the Chinese buffet ribs. I do not really feel guilty about this, though, since it is a part of my routine, and it helped me through the weight loss process this year.

You would ask this after Thanksgiving Week...
Well, last week notwithstanding, I generally have oatmeal with raisins and an English muffin for breakfast (with a little jelly), a sliced turkey breast sandwich and Wheat Thins for lunch (with chocolate animal crackers for dessert). Dinner rotates between two or three standard entrees - whole wheat spaghetti with tomato sauce, chicken vegetable soup, baked potato with shredded cheese, sometimes a chicken tenders sandwich if I've burned plenty of calories the rest of the day. Steamed veggies on the side, and usually cereal and maybe something sweeter for dessert. Usually have a few relatively healthy snacks throughout the day. Natural peanut butter often makes an appearance.
Could be a lot worse, but it could be better. Probably too many carbs, and I should probably put something a little healthier with that lunchtime turkey sandwich.
Guilty pleasure would be an extra helping of peanut butter, or one of whatever completely unhealthy dessert a certain unnamed person who lives here often bakes up. I've begun to suspect she's trying to fatten me up to eat me.
