For me, I feel more free to choose now than when I was eating the SAD diet. Because of the addictive nature of fat/sugar/processed foods I felt very out of control, even though I had all the choices in the world when it came to what I would eat. Yes, now my eating palate had shrunk quite considerably, but I feel like I am actually making the choices of what I eat freely because the food isn't "speaking to me" like SAD food did.
I feel stronger because I am in control of what I eat. I don't relish the idea of getting in other people's faces because they aren't eating a great diet (either here or in my personal life). I just wait for them to ask me what I'm doing and I'll be more than glad to inform them. My opinion that those who need to chastise others about their failures are themselves struggling with this WOE.
Yes, I think my rebellious nature helped me to accept this WOE, not feeling STRANGE around people eating SAD but rather feel EMPOWERED, SMART and IN CONTROL. I guess for some the McD WOE might feel confining to them and that is a ok way to feel. Hopefully they come to realize that we are all being rebellious against the SAD and the cultural beliefs that built the SAD. Those of us who eat a McD diet are still a VERY small part of the whole. I don't see how people could feel that this community is anything but a way to have a support network of like-minded people in a world full of SAD diet booby-traps.
