The Law and Chocolate

From my "Internet Quick Hits" daily email from today:

If you're jones'n for some chocolate just give in. New research shows the more we try to fight off a chocolate craving, the more we desire it.

I don't agree one bit with the "just give in" statement, but doesn't this sound an awful lot like the power of the law at work!?

"The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law." (1 Cor 15:56)


  1. You know why the modern day diets don't work? I have tried many diets in the past and was successful for a while but then gained everything back and even more. Now I don't diet because I know I am going to fail. It relieves me off the pressure.

    And it surprises me that I am losing weight consistently now. Since there is no law (diet), I don't crave for the 'forbidden' food and end up over-eating. I find it funny that the whole diet industry (or law industry (church)) has grown so much that people don't even have the ability to think...


  2. I still haven't overcome the battle of the bulge, and I do know for sure that all the low-carbing, cabbage souping, low-fatting, etc, etc, in the world has never provided power in me for consistent good-eating habits. :( The first thing I go for when I go "off" a diet is the things I've been craving all along. Burger King and Wendy's have plentiful supplies of those, um, foods!

    "Keep away" makes you want to go there all the more.
