Quick group e-hug!
Despite my claim that I didn’t want reassurances, it was still really nice to find all those lovely comments this morning. I have to leave for work in just a minute so I don’t have time for more personal replies at this minute.
After thinking about it a bit last night, I’ve decided it boils down to 1) Feeling a little blah in general and 2) complexity is hard. I do envy those blogs where the writer(s) has decided exactly what the answers are and there is no reason to look any further because it’s….carbs, fat, animal products, lazy fat people, all anti-fat b.s. etc… There’s a bit of envy for how much easier it must be to navigate these topics when you have a handy-dandy narrative set up to answer every last question. In general though, I also think those answers are full of crap.
Which is my way of saying I’ll continue trying to do the best I can to be fair and to acknowledge the complexities of all these issues even if sometimes it makes my writing sound all milquetoasty.
