I just ate an entire Trader Joes Brie en croute all by myself. 1620 calories. It only comes out at the holidays.

Do you ever find yourself doing something like this?

What say you?

I can't anymore, get uncomfortably too full anymore. I rarely finish a meal when we go out anymore, even when I order "light." Most nghts, I end up eating part of my dinner the next day.

That TJ's Brie sounds great, probably needs to be washed down with a few glasses of wine too.

The holidays cause me to graze, a cookie, some cheese, another cookie, taste the mashed potatoes 10 times to make sure they are seasoned, pull the skin off the turkey, pick at the dressing... I'm never hungry for dinner because I've eaten all day and it was probably 3 times the calories I normally eat.

Gluttony. 'tis my middle name.

My list of "ever find [my]self doing something like this" would cause this site to run out of bandwidth. (I'm only slightly exaggerating.)

What say me? Enjoy.

A half gallon of premium ice cream in the freezer emits a siren song that I cannot resist. "I'll just have a small bowl" turns into "well, just a little more maybe" which turns into "one more bowl won't hurt anything" which turns into "WHO THE HELL ATE ALL THE ICE CREAM????"

Very natural for Humans to occasionally vacuum-down astonishing amounts of food.

Back when Gork and his wife used to go for extended periods without food, gorging when they did come upon food was not uncommon.

Who is Gork? I have never "vacuum-down" any amount of food. Who does that? Why?
