I just think back to when I was a kid – not caring about the ingredients, and just listening to my body and giving in to my cravings. I was a lot healthier thanks to my lack of concern about nutrition, and I ate what I wanted without thinking about it. I don’t think you need to go out and buy everything that has trans-fat in it, but if it sounds good to you then get it! A little trans-fat every now and then probably won’t kill us, and even if it takes a couple days off of our lives, if it makes you happier and livelier then that’s really what counts at the end of the day.
After I started incorporating ‘junk’ food I felt better almost immediately. Junk food, for me, mainly consists of:
1.) Ice Cream
2.) cereal
3.) chocolate
4.) Pasta
5.) Pizza
6.) Burgers/Fries
7.) Starbucks peppermint mocha!
8.) Cookies
The list goes on and on, but I’m just trying to enjoy myself and that seems to be the ultimate cure. Once you can separate yourself from your diet you are truly free.
Good luck!
