Craving a pepperoni pizza

I’m in the midst of a radical shift in my relationship with food. I’m doing a modified cleansing fast that will hopefully help break my addiction to sugar, then create a new base and standard from which to work towards being a healthy person. It’s not easy.

Today has been the first tough day, number four. Actually yesterday was hard too, the first day that I started craving my old comfort foods, which are unhealthy, but nonetheless comforting. There are a lot of fast food commercials during sports on television, and reading the food and dining section of the New York Times online didn’t help much either.

But a nice greasy pepperoni pizza is what I really started craving after seeing a photo on Flickr. Dam, you Flickr!
