though I look for as many excuses to eat them as I can find.
Which is just on this side of where it becomes a problem. I think that there is a slippery slope (I'm totally not implying that you are sliding btw) where we come up with reasons to eat what we usually know is just pure "because I wanna". Those reasons then become "no, I need to do this" because we've given ourselves "reasons". The mild vigilance it takes to not start believing anything other than "because I wanna" stops that issue. I see it in a lot of places. Rationalization. It's a pet peeve.  ;D
I do what I do because it feels good. I don't care what you do. But if it doesn't work, please don't complain. Just change it.

Yup and the tastier the foods are, the more emotionally defensive folks tend to be about them. There aren't too many folks getting angry if anyone reports not liking broccoli or Brussels sprouts or not doing well on them, but say something bad about raw cream at a Weston Price or raw Primal group discussion or bacon at a ZC forum or raw fruits or honey here then watch out! LOL
