<<Come to think of it, I seem to recall intercst remarking that he bought a generous supply of Safeway chocolate doughnuts when they were on sale!



Safeway also has a $5 Friday special, once a month for a tray of 9 cream puffs for $5. I bough two one month and froze one. No change in condition and quality after thawing, so I'm now buying two trays per month in addition to the chocolate donuts.

It's a good thing I walk 50 miles/week at a brisk pace - that's enough to burn off an extra 5,000 calories per week -- I'm still the same weight I was in college.


This seems to contradict the theory advanced elsewhere that dental problems can be avoided with a diet that minimizes carbs, since intercst does fine with an annual dental cleaning schedule.
