Just Because …

Just because you can eat a whole pound of chicken in one sitting, doesn’t mean you should.

I can.

I speak with many others who can as well.

Like them (and perhaps like you), whenever a large quantity of food that I love is placed in front of me, desire kicks in.

The desire to enjoy it.

The desire to finish everything on my plate because my grandmother wouldn’t want me to waste anything.

These feelings of immediate pleasure are often strong enough to blind us from the medium & long term realities of pain.
