Now with less carbs
I know I've bitched about this before, but dammit I guess I will re-iterate it once again. The low carb craze has got to stop. A legitimate diet has been raked over the coals and has now surpassed fad status and is fast becoming a fucking catch phrase. You can't even look around a store without seeing the word "carb" on your products. Everyone wants to be low carb or lower carb and they are putting out more and more products with less carbs.
Here is the problem with all of that. When you take the carbs out of something, you have to replace it with something. Refined sugar carbs are probably the worst carbs out there and all of the snack shit that is coming out in a low carb format needs to understand something. You can't replace sugar with lacitol and malitol and things like that and have it be just fine for you. First you will most likely get the shits because you get a laxative effect from them. Second, if you are buying all of the low carb chocolate bars and ice creams then you really haven't learned anything being on the low carb diet anyway. The main point of any diet is for you to stop fucking eating the sweets and high carb/fat items and eat the basics. Once you start throwing the treats back into your everyday lifestyle; even the low carb ones; you are just asking for failure.
Another problem is all of these products that just happened to be low carb that are suddenly stressing that point. The meat department has Low Carb signs up by their meats. Well no shit. I love the fact that these products are now advertising that they are low carb because it's the in thing to do. Find a pork rind bag that doesn't stress they have no carbs. I'm surprised water doesn't have it on their bottles...yet.
Oh well, bitch mode off for a moment. Tomorrow is my day off and I am damn ready for it. I have been in a bad ass mood for some reason lately. The last two days have been pretty bad at work. It's been to the point where people would walk down the aisle and in my head I'm like get out of here you fuckers. I'm not normally like that so I'm not sure what is up. It might just be that I'm so sick of work that I need to get out of there. Someday...hopefully soon.
