I hear you, Spud. I'm an "all evening nibbler", mostly on my homemade dehydrated pear chips. Lots of sugar in each bite, but I rationalized by saying the roughage is good for me. I alternate between sweet and salty snacks.

It's all quite normal to snack like this, even after we've eaten a big meal. Perhaps the trick is to ban all such snacky items from the house. Easier said than done! Good luck to you.

If I eat something, no matter what time of day, my body wants to eat more & more & more until I'm stuffed.  I don't get near as tempted to eat when I fast the entire day.

If I skip breakfast, I will eat more later in the day, even up to bedtime.  That negatively impacts my sleep, and sometimes gives me acid reflux.

Spud, I can understand how difficult it must be. In fact, I don't know how you can go a whole day without eating. Wouldn't just skipping breakfast be enough? Dr. Mercola calls it "intermittent fasting". I know it takes every bit of will power I can muster up not to nibble on a piece of chocolate or cookie on my "off days".

Randy, I've started fasting every other day again in order to loose fat.  It's the only way I've found that works for me.  It's easier to do that than any other plan, but the temptation is still there, especially when I pass through the kitchen.

Why are you fasting, Spud? I've been "sugar fasting" on odd days, but not to lose weight. Just seeing if I can do it!

In Missouri my social security was not taxed this year, probably because I didn't start working again until December. I even had $3000 unemployment and didn't have to pay on that. Although I didn't pay anything to the state I got back $116 from them because I had paid full price on my taxes. At 65 you can sign forms to reduce your taxes, or if you wait like I did my tax man makes the adjustment for me at end of year.

Don't know about next year yet. I'm working about 2 days a week and will be in a different tax bracket. There comes a time when a portion of the social security is taxed.

Idaho is considering raising sales tax from 6% to 7% but dropping the tax on food.  Also considering making income tax a flat 6.6%, overall increasing state revenues.

I get $16 per month from the state for food, and that is not taxed.  If the new tax law passes, all my food will now be tax free.  My social security income is not taxed, but I don't know yet if I'll be giving the state more or less.

Just bought 7 oz of Gouda for 2.98+6% tax = $3.16 which is $7.22 per pound.  Not too bad.  Haven't eaten any yet as I'm fasting today.

I've taken a fancy to provolone cheese, too. Added it to my scrambled eggs this morning. I just wish cheeses weren't so expensive.

Comment by Plinius on February 25, 2015 at 1:54am

Joan, thanks, I knew but I was confused by a typo. Gouda is 20 minutes by train from here and I've been there a few times. A nice old town centre with canals. Apart from cheese they make candles, pottery and stained glass. Gouda cheese is ok, but I prefer cheese from raw milk, with a sharp tang.
