Then about 16 months ago I was diagnosed as a diabetic. My eating patterns changed. I became a much healthier eater at meals and junk snacks became (mostly) a thing of the past. And sweets became a forbidden fruit. But still....there are times, in the dark places of the night and of my soul, when I have to give in. I need a sweet fix. So while I may talk a good game and eat healthy foods when you are watching, the temptation is always there.
All of this made me recall a novelty song from my teenage years called Junk Food Junkie, sung by a guy name Larry Groce. I was stunned to find it on YouTube, so I share it with you here today. Even tough a few of the references are dated, the song still explains so well what goes on underneath the surface for all of those who try so hard to eat healthy foods. Give it a listen!
