These first few weeks of fatherhood have been, in a word, stressful.  Admittedly my situation is not unique. Every new parent has had that “oh sh*t” realization that there’s this brand new human you’re responsible for keeping alive, and you’re somehow supposed to know what to do despite never having done this before. Add in the sleep deprivation, and it’s no surprise that I haven’t been making the best eating choices . . . which then adds more guilt (i.e., stress) to the mix. It’s a vicious cycle. And whether you’re a parent or not, I’m sure you recognize it. People gain weight during str ..read more

I really, really love donuts — to an unhealthy degree. Some might even call my relationship to donuts addict-like. Time and again, I’ll go months or even years without eating a donut, but when suddenly donuts happen to be available, I’ll have one. This, of course, should be a meaningless event; eating one donut is a perfectly okay thing to do. However, if I have that donut on a Tuesday, I’ll be back in the donut shop on Friday. The following week, I’m in there Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I’ll even go in thinking I’m not hungry, this is bad for me, I don’t need this … and then buy a donut. T ..read more
