I can be perfectly human instead. I have these perfect chocolate truffles in my office. I savor them. I share them with my colleagues. I log every bite.
This evening I got hungry while working late. So I ate a second serving, which was one more than I had planned. I thoroughly enjoyed them. I didn’t feel guilty. I thought about it and decided I didn’t want a fake chocolate protein shake. I would rather a fabulous moment of real food. I am really enjoying the taste of every one of these morsels. They’re smaller than the tip of my thumb and the taste is melt-in-your-mouth sublime. I think it’s the first and last bites that we really taste anyway. So perhaps that’s a good strategy. A two-bite rule. And if I go overboard, well then, you-turns are permitted
I didn’t keep eating the whole box however. I saved some for tomorrow!
